[Here is a modest proposal.

Everyone in the nation should pay a 25% income tax.

5% goes to the federal government for civil and criminal courts plus defense.

The remaining 20% must go to institutions within the person’s state.

These institutions may include churches, charities, plus any other non-profit organizations designated by each particular state.

Let the people put their money where their mouths are.

Let their choices and amounts be published on the internet.

All other federal transfer programs should cease within 10 years.

All monies held in special accounts for particular purposes (for example, so-called trust funds, which are all empty) should be returned to the individuals who paid them.]

My heart2 is the single actuality that arises from the congruence of two co-oppositions.]
