To summarize my political views. I back any idea that encourages conservation, and innovation. My views are very similar to Ron Paul's.
The high price of healthcare is a result of medical institutions and insurance companies hiding the cost from consumers. If you were to ask the average person how much does it cost to have a baby, or how much does an emergency room visit cost, they wouldn't know. Consumers should have health insurance only to cover emergency situations. When you visit a doctor there should not be copays. Consumers should be forced to pay out of pocket at the time of care. Healthcare should be treated no differently than car care. You pay for service at the time of service. Medicare and Medicaid should be shutdown. These two programs just encourage massive amounts of fraud. Hospitals should not be forced to provide care for people who don't have insurance If these changes were made to healthcare the price of care would drop to a fraction of what it currently is.
Its no secret that millions of Americans both rich and poor go out of their way to avoid paying taxes. Corporations use loopholes, Poor deal in cash under the table. These days it seems everyone's goal is to make as much money without the government knowing. Well there is a solution to this problem. National Sales Tax. By Taxing people based on consumption rather than production, nobody will be able avoid paying their fair share.
No Limit on Business Deductions
The IRS doesn't allow companies to write off large purchases in a single calendar year. Example if I buy a new laptop for $1000. I have depreciate this deduction over the next few years. This not only creates more work to keep track of this deduction for the next year, but it deters me from making larger purchases. Newt Gingrich has proposed getting rid of this rule, which would cause all small businesses to make large purchases and stimulate the economy.Why I started this blog
As a Web Application developer I am constantly learning new things. The daily struggles of building websites
, using new technologies, and running various web, mail, and database servers, has given me the opportunity to learn a bunch of stuff. The posts on this blog are to help other developers who may run into the same problems I run into. Or they are to provide education to my clients who constantly have questions about technologies they don't understand. Its easier for me to just refer them to a blog entry, than to spend 30 minutes on the phone trying to verbalize it.
