What will you do about public transport?

I believe that's up to the transit systems. There is definitely one on these forums somewhere.

I have changed my views to making money for the people of The Island. So nearly a capitalist.

I am now looking for employees for my campaign.

Graphic Designer: Open

Promoter: Open

And of course I need public supporters. And while I'm not going to ask you to support me if you don't want to, I do ask for anybody who is supporting me to leave a comment and say that you do. It would be very much appreciated.

And as for my plans for office. My gun policy stands as is. I don't believe that somebody having a gun makes them dangerous. It's the person alone that is dangerous. 

I'm also still very firm at equality in the marketplace and economy. Lower, Middle and Upper will all pay taxes according to their annual income. Along with free health care paid for by your taxes. 

Along with these taxes it will help pay for better equipment for our Police, Hospitals and Fire Departments so they don't have any trouble doing their job and avoid danger.

And as always, if you have any questions about my campaign please feel free to ask. I would like to hear what you have to say. Have a wonderful day.

According to http://www.investopedia.com/articles/personal-finance/082015/how-much-medicaid-and-medicare-cost-americans.asp  medicare and Medicaid programs we have in the U.S. (which don't even come close to covering all costs) cost just short of 700 billion dollars for the government. Assuming these numbers are true, do you believe your tax brackets will be able to afford such an expensive industry?

I do think we would be able to fully compensate for it. With the amount of people living on the Island and the amount of businesses within it, our economy could spike incredibly high within a 5-10 month span. With that, more money would equal higher taxes based on your income. A lower class citizen makes 5-10,000 dollars in a year, we take 5-10% of that income which is only a mere 1,000 dollars. But as the financial groups raise more money can be taken from taxes. The goal is to raise the economic growth to the point where the lower class would be equivalent to the middle class. 

So in that I do think yes, we would be able to back up the claim of free healthcare based on the percentage of people and their taxing from annual income.

Well with better government spending and not wasteful spending we would seek out to raise the growth of our economy. Make it extremely stable so that people can make more money in usually low paying jobs. My goal is to make The Island rich and have everybody have money. That way we are in what I would call "The Golden Age" of our economy.

Sure, but unless you're trying to achieve communism, there will always be a "lower class" whether they're making $10,000 a year or $100,000 a year. The threshold will vary, but there will always be people poorer than others. 

I'm no economist, but if everyone was making $100,000+, that would only mean that the currency is facing inflation.

In no way am I saying that the lower class will be eliminated. I'm simply stating that it will take the place of middle class metaphorically. Lower class is lower class no matter what. And when we are faced with inflation we adjust. We adjust for the inflation if we get any.

 I am wondering if you want universal healthcare we need to pay more taxes. With the ACA I am using people will pay monthly rates which will be determined on their social class. Property taxes are important so we can run on a full tank of fuel to keep the economy running. Property tax is 1/3 of that fuel tank and you won't get to the place you want to go in the end. We cant have assault rifles or machine guns out on the street we need gun control. If you want a good leader for the island then visit my campaign page for gov.

If you read any part of my campaign it clearly says that guns are fine. It's the people who use them and that we need to regulate who gets them. The fact that you came into my page and promoted yourself is incredibly disrespectful. Taxes should be based on the annual income, not based on the class type. That doesn't fix anything. I'm working to make every person on the Island feel like after they work for their money they still get to keep it. So while your taxing does 1/3 of the job my proposal does nearly 3/3. 

I'm offering Universal Healthcare to the people that need it. The officers, lawyers, doctors and even the labor workers. They all deserved free health care. We set up steps to get it and from there you have it. Guns don't kill people and you know that for a fact. If you give a gun to a sane man for protection he uses it when somebody breaks into his home or robs him at knife point. Regulations are the way to go. With my plan we actually save money by not having to ban weapons and paying extra money for special units to dispose of all the guns on the Island.

I understand that but if people have too much money that means the taxes are not high and without slightly higher taxes we on the Island must have a strong economy to archive the goals I want for the Island. I also never said that I would get special teams to dispose of weapons but if that is what it comes down to with sightly higher taxes we on the Island will have the money to send out those teams.

And just wondering are you part of the socialist party because you are giving out free health care and i do like that idea. But you employees haw will they get paid. Will they get paid with taxes which means you will have to tax more to make them be able to to get a OK paycheck.

Free Healthcare is easy to control. You tax people based on their annual income, not raise the interest all together or else you take away more money and you get rich off of it. With my plan people would get free healthcare and then not have to pay an arm and a leg just to survive. And your ban on guns, this is using the tax payer dollars that your practically stealing from them in the first place. You're blowing money on trying to keep guns away. At least with my plan we save money and people stay safe.

Regulating Taxes on working people will not only bring more jobs but also putting more people in those jobs. A person who makes 8$ an hour gets taxed 5%,10% and even 15% and sometimes even up to but not limited to 35%. You take a middle class man who works 10 hours a day and makes 10 dollars an hour. He gets taxed 15% for his week of pay. He takes home 425$ or somewhere around there. That money could be going towards his house payments. His food. His utilities or even buying clothes for his children. Regulating taxes is the number one thing we need to work on. I want to lower the tax rate to at least 3% to give the lower/middle class man or woman that extra incentive to work harder for those promotions. A happy worker is a hard worker.

Dear Mr. Smith,

I believe I write to you on behalf of the entire working class when I ask how you would see this effectuate when you would be in office.

- Would the tax switch be instant?
- What other sources of income will you have to keep our roads maintained?
- Will you be able to afford adequate police, firemen, and health services, as well as schools with this tax plan?
- Will the 3% tax be for lower and middle class only? If yes, what will the higher class tax be set at? What is the justification for this difference?
- When you say the tax regulation is the "number one thing" to work on, do you in fact mean tax regulation is more important than, say, gun control?

 

Also, considering your view on crime, you have said the following, and I quote:

Quote

 

Well it all depends on the crime. If you commit murder than you'll be sent to prison for a while. But if you do something like hack a persons phone or sell a small amount of drugs you'll be put on a probation period. 

My plan for this is to limit the amount of things criminals can get. If they're on probation and try and buy things that they're known to commit crimes with they'll either be denied or arrested. I'll do a 3 strike rule. Don't do something three times or else you'll go to prison for a maximum sentence.

 

Are you implying that hacking a personal device is a petty crime in your opinion and should be treated as a minor offense? What of larger hacks? What measurement do you use to define the difference?

If put on probation for hacking, does this imply the perpetrator will have their phone confiscated? Or perhaps the device (i.e. laptop or other) which was used to perform the hack?

Finally, what would be a maximum sentence?

Kindest regards,
Barry L. Crow

Thank you for asking, and thank you for being a hard working citizen in advance.

Will the tax switch be instant?- If I'm elected it will be one of the very first things I do. I want to even the economy out instead of just cutting against the grain. So to answer your question, yes. But I'll maintain it to help people ease into it.

What other sources of income will you have to keep our roads maintained- Well based on the fact that we won't be banning guns we would be saving a lot of money from that alone. I'm hoping to make the economy so stable that the people could contribute if they want, but do not have to. But whatever is left over from filing the healthcare will be used to help maintain the roads.

- Will you be able to afford adequate police, firemen, and health services, as well as schools with this tax plan?- With the whatever left over money we have from spending it on our healthcare I would assume so. Considering the amount of citizens there are and the amount of them paying taxes we should have more than enough. Doctors, Police and Firefighters will suffer no loss in payment because of something like this. And if it comes to it I will put out my own income so they continue to be paid.

- Will the 3% tax be for lower and middle class only? If yes, what will the higher class tax be set at? What is the justification for this difference?- Yes, that is the plan. And the other classes will see gradual increases in their taxes due to their higher annual salary. The reason for this is to balance things out and have everybody paying fair taxes. I've seen this done before but on a smaller scale and it's worked perfectly for them. 

-When you say the tax regulation is the "number one thing" to work on, do you in fact mean tax regulation is more important than, say, gun control?- When I say that it's me saying "The faster we can make things stable the faster we could see a possible decrease in crime." Gun control is incredibly important but I think that we should focus on making money for people so they don't have to resort to the crime. 

I really do hope I've answered your questions accordingly and if I didn't please feel free to reply back or PM asking anything else. Thank you for your time.

So what's the top tax bracket taxed at?
