How do “we the people” get rid of the Republicans and the Democrats?

By Christopher R Rice

Congress and the Senate need to be held to one term. The founding fathers never intended there to be “career politicians”. Because politician is not an occupation.

How do “we the people” get rid of the Republicans and the Democrats? Or as I like to call them the crooks and the criminals. They are not about to just give up power, but we can make it hurt for them to hold onto power. By forming the People’s Party (United States, 2017)

From Wikipedia:

The People’s Party, also known as the Populist Party or the Populists, was an agrarian-populist political party in the United States. For a few years, 1892–96, it played a major role as a left-wing force in American politics. It was merged into the Democratic Party in 1896; a small independent remnant survived until 1908. It drew support from angry farmers in the West and South and operated on the left-wing of American politics. It was highly critical of capitalism, especially banks and railroads, and allied itself with the labor movement.

Established in 1891, as a result of the Populist movement, the People’s Party reached its zenith in the 1892 presidential election, when its ticket, composed of James B. Weaver and James G. Field, won 8.5% of the popular vote and carried five states (Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Nevada and North Dakota), and the 1894 House of Representatives elections, when it took over 10% of the vote. Built on a coalition of poor, white cotton farmers in the South (especially North Carolina, Alabama and Texas) and hard-pressed wheat farmers in the Plains states (especially Kansas and Nebraska), the Populists represented a radical crusading form of agrarianism and hostility to elites, cities, banks, railroads, and gold.

The party sometimes allied with labor unions in the North and Republicans in the South. In the 1896 presidential elections the Populists endorsed the Democratic presidential nominee, William Jennings Bryan, adding their own vice presidential nominee. By joining with the Democrats, the People’s Party lost its independent identity and rapidly withered away.

The terms “populism” and “populist” have been used in the 20th and 21st centuries to describe anti-elitist appeals against established interests or mainstream parties, referring to both the political left and right.

People’s Party (United States, 1971)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The People’s Party was a political party in the United States, founded in 1971 by various individuals and state and local political parties, including the Peace and Freedom Party, Commongood People’s Party, Country People’s Caucus, Human Rights Party, Liberty Union, New American Party, New Party, and No Party. The party’s goal was to present a united anti-war platform for the coming election.

The People’s Party ran for the presidency two times, once in U.S. presidential election, 1972 with Dr. Benjamin Spock (an American pediatrician and author of parenting books) as their candidate and once in the U.S. presidential election, 1976 with Margaret Wright as their presidential candidate and Spock running for vice president.

After the election, the party moved to become a loose coalition, but was soon defunct, with most of its founding parties also dissolved.

2017 People Parties Platform

1.) Reduce crime by electing, training and funding an unarmed Community Police watch

2.) Reduce homelessness by providing and funding mental, drug and work rehabs

3.) End the ‘War on Drugs’ and provide and fund drug rehab without waiting lines

4.) Militarily protect the US borders to stop the flow of illegal drugs coming into the US on a daily basis

5.) Ban ‘Executive orders’ and return to a functioning Republic with three functioning branches of government

6.) End the wars overseas, bring the troops home and fund the VA

7.) Make deficit spending illegal. Force politicians to live within their means or face consequences

8.) Fund prevention, education and mental health instead of incarceration

9.) Build modern roads, schools, hospital and dams

10.) Pay for the above by decreasing our global military footprint

11.) Write and pass laws which make lobbying and donating to politicians and political parties illegal. Television networks which are given huge tax breaks for public broadcasting, already, can be required to give air time during political campaigns in exchange for the above mentioned tax breaks

12.) Hold LE and politicians to the same laws as everyone else

13.) Repeal Bush’s/Obama’s/Trump’s tax cuts for the rich

14.) Close the tax loop holes that allow profitable corporations to avoid paying their fair share

20.) Pardon Snowden/Assange

21.) CIA should return to being a spy agency and leave the para-military to the military

22.) CPS should do everything in its power to keep families together and only separate children from their parents in the most severe cases. CPS could accomplish this by offering family counseling, parenting and drug classes and other services with the goal of keeping families together.

23.) Return the tax burden back to the corporations and off of the workers

24.) Give tax incentives for environmentally friendly businesses and citizens

Business tax payments plunge, while workers pay more

By Rick Newman

Workers are shouldering a rising share of federal revenue, while tax payments by businesses are plunging toward record lows.

Treasury Department data for the first half of 2018 show individual income tax receipts rose 8.1%, to $915 billion. Corporate income tax receipts fell 32.4%, to $100 billion. The sharp decline in corporate tax revenue is largely a result of the tax cuts President Trump signed into law at the end of 2017, which cut the top corporate rate from 35% to 21%. Here are the numbers:

The drop in corporate tax payments isn’t surprising, since that’s exactly what the Trump tax cuts were designed to do: leave more after-tax income in corporate coffers to spur more investment. Workers got tax cuts too, but they were relatively modest. About two thirds of households got a tax cut averaging about $2,200, according to the Tax Policy Center. Taxes will rise for 6% of households, by an average of $2,800. The rest should see no change.

Corporate tax receipts have steadily declined as a portion of all federal revenue, from 17% in 1970 to 9% last year. So far in 2018, corporate tax receipts represent just 5.6% of federal revenue, which is the smallest portion ever on an annualized basis. (Statistical note: The government’s fiscal year starts in October, so FY 2018 tax revenue will include three months without the Trump tax cuts and nine months with them. The 5.6% figure above is just for the first six months of calendar year 2018, when the Trump tax cuts were fully in effect.)

Here’s how the makeup of federal tax revenue has changed over time. Not shown are social-welfare taxes, excise taxes and other sources of revenue:

It’s not surprising that tax payments from individual workers would rise this year, even with a tax cut in effect. Inflation, wage growth and other factors normally push tax payments from workers higher when the economy is growing.

Last summer, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) forecast that, without any tax cuts, individual tax receipts would rise 9.5% in 2018. The smaller rise of 8.1% could reflect the impact of the Trump tax cuts. And most workers didn’t see lower tax withholdings in their paychecks until March, at the earliest, which means the full effect of the tax cuts aren’t showing up yet in government revenue numbers.

The CBO expected corporate tax revenue to rise 4.5% this year, without any tax cuts. The huge drop in corporate tax revenue, following the tax cuts, highlights why the tax law has become a political problem for Trump and his fellow Republicans. The tax law is unpopular, with 43% of Americans disapproving and just 36% approving, in the Real Clear Politics average of polls. Americans in general feel the tax cuts too heavily favor businesses and the wealthy — and the federal revenue numbers bear that out. The unpopularity of the tax cuts could lead voters away from Republicans in the upcoming midterm elections, and perhaps tip one or both houses of Congress to Democrats.

The Trump tax cuts are also ballooning Washington’s annual deficits, along with the national debt. The CBO expects the gap between revenue and spending to soar by 21% this year, to $804 billion. The deficit will exceed $1 trillion by 2020 and grow for the foreseeable future.

Trump and a few sympathetic economists say the tax cuts will stimulate so much growth that federal tax revenue will eventually be higher than it would be without any tax cuts. Most budget experts disagree. “The federal government will certainly collect less revenue than it would have without the tax cut,” says economist Kyle Pomerlau of the nonprofit Tax Foundation. “Eventually, the government does need to pay its bills. We’re not on a sustainable path.”
