    As the title says, I hate to bring up government and politics in an unrelated forum, but it is becoming more and more evident that the gestapo US government will not rest until they've stripped us of all rights and liberties.

    As internet marketers, bhaters and entrepreneurs in general, we have much to lose if the government continues their takeover and over-regulation of everything. The recent attacks on the online poker sites severally affected some of my colleagues income streams. Now they are talking about federal laws that will be similar to the Nexus laws we saw adopted by a few states. Studies already show that the average American losses 50% of their income to taxes, in both direct manners such as income tax and indirectly through "pass-thru" taxes we see on gas, cell phones, and cor regulation taxes.

    I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm quite tired of the fed telling me what I can and can't do, and making it harder every year to earn a buck online.

    I dont like it one bit either, but what is the alternative? If you dont pay then you could go to jail. For me, I purchase as many business related items as I can every year and write it off. That way, I get what I want, and Uncle Sam gets what he wants.

    It is a sad development that is going on. The people in congress are crooks and are on a ridiculous vacation while the country is going right down the shitter.

    HOWEVER!

    The United States is the best country on the planet and we have freedoms unlike any other place in the world. I am confident that the public is going to rise up and make some changes. This nonsense has been going on for far too long and people are starting to get sick of it.

    The US is unique in the sense that we are fiercely independent and, on the whole, want government as small as possible. I could take some partisan stabs here, but I won't. Hopefully bills such as this will not pass, but we must always be sure to vote in representatives who are for SMALL GOVERNMENT.

    There was on microcountry that was raided by pirates a few decades ago. :D

    On the other side, I wouldn't mind a few artillery guns next to my garden. :D

    Move to Romania to take advantage of the fastest internet in europe and 3rd fastest after Hong Kong and South Korea. register your business in Bulgaria and only pay 10% tax. Both countries are going to join the Schengen agreement soon. So you can freely travel from paris to constanta soon like people can travel from new york to miami without a passport.

    P.S.
    Romania will surpass South Korea soon and be 2nd fastest internet in the world.

    Also you will have to give up your u.s. citizenship if you want to take advantage of the tax savings if you make over $90,000 per year.

    Yes, we should not have government regulation or taxes! lol

    There would not be an internet for us to be making money on without taxes and government spending on research.

    Without INCREASED regulation, the big telecoms will take over everything and sites like this one and the ones we all run will not be able to function equally like they do now.

    Everyone wants everything for free. Having a good society costs money. If you don't want a governemnt, move to Somalia.

    What we need to do is get more honest people in office, hold them more accountable, and work to make the ways our money gets spent more open and democratic.

    Some countries have less "rights" then the U.S. but many have just as much or more.

    I'd say get rid of the banking systems and insurance corporations that control governments, after that lawyers, etc.

    2012 is not that far away :D

    You guys do realize that taxes are necessary to keep a country running right? Without taxes you would be without emergency services, roads, police, and the list goes on an on. Quit bitching about paying taxes like a patriot, and enjoy the country you live in.
