Eliminate the Federal Income Tax

Unity supports replacing federal income taxes with a revenue measure based on the carbon content of fossil fuels as a simple way of balancing the budget, combating global warming, and encouraging the development of alternative energy sources. A reduction in fossil fuel consumption would enhance American power abroad by making this nation less dependent on foreign sources of oil.

    No way a carbon tax raises that much money.

    A fair tax across the board would raise more revenue.

    I agree with Burma and Gadfly. I think a no-loophole, flat tax for the top 75% of incomes would be the way to go.

    I’m looking to support a well thought out centrist party. I agree with several of your key positions, but this platform plank is far too unrealistic, much further left that the Democrats regarding fossil fuels. I like the idea of shifting the tax base to taxing consumption rather than income, but this is far too narrow.

    As stated Taxes should be flipped with taxing only the top 23%. Go after all money in offshore accounts. An allow other countries to get Income taxes as we allow from corps and companies abroad. Global warming is going to get us all very soon. Carbin tax needs doubled and quadruple with some type of abusers. Shell Oil for one. Overhaul Va and strengthen science and medicine with the tax structures of big oil. Everyone bet total Education and health care. Restitution for the African American can be handled with 25 acres of BLM land. Let Indiana have 100% control of the National parks.
