The way I see it, we have four major problems in the U.S., and solving the first three requires the abolition of the fourth: crony capitalism (nepotism), government corruption, government collusion with crime organizations, and unfair and illegal taxation (the Internal Revenue Servcice).

All we need to do in America to stop the crime and corruption is to abolish the IRS and replace it with a flat 10% tax that everyone and every commercial entity must pay. All the crooks and liars and so forth would leave Washington because all the easy tax money would have dried up.

Forget the political infighting and the media hype and rhetoric, because we have already seen that our election system is unsalvageable as long as the ruling elite has all the money and power. Whereas, we can easily remedy four really bad situations for the price of doing just one intelligent thing: abolishing the IRS forever.
