There is to many taxes, In America the only mandatory taxes are house and car taxes. Sales taxes are optional because of the internet and one can make an unlimited through tax free trusts.

Having said that, Space Cadet is correct in saying that the evil EU empire should be dissolved forthwith.

But how would a lot of farmers make any sort of decent wage without it?

Wakey wakey. It was the EU that destroyed the agricultural industry in Ireland (with their standard-size potatoes and increased competition; the removal of the slaughter premium, etc.).

crap :!:
all my life I have been under the misconception that the EU has been one of the driving forces behind the growth and development of our Republic and then along comes AFJROTC Cadet with his reasoned and developed argument that the EU is lame.
He of course is right. the American taxation system is one which should be copied the world over as we look at there huge budget surpluses and staggering growth,
damn you AFJROTC Cadet for shattering my fragile beliefs

Bad argument :!:
It was the EU which kept the Irish Agriculture industry as strong as it was for so long and kept the price of food as low as it was. CAP reform has hurt Irish farmers, but not to the extent that some would have you believe. also a great portion of an irish farmers income comes from EU subsidies

Increased competition?

So who would Irish farmers be selling to without access to EU markets, production subsidies and export refunds?

I suppose you're going to tell me that Egyptian and Russian housewives are more than willing to pay €10 for 8oz of Irish beef?

Aye, that's right. Well argued.
They destroy it by taking 704 million Euro from Ireland in contributions to the CAP budget and then spending 1,822 million Euro from the CAP budget in Ireland.

It`sacommon misconception that the tax-rate in America is low. The Americans pay taxes to the Federal government, to their state-government and even to their local government. In the OECD-reports the US-tax burden/capita does not differ very much from the Western European countries. In fact, the countries with the lowest tax burden are the newly liberated Baltic countries with their flat-tax rates but in those countries unforeseen poverty is a mirror image to the new wealth.

I entirely agree.

EU regulations are destroying Irish agriulture.

I was out campaigning for UKIP at an agricultural show, and I got talking to an Irishwoman who informed me the EU are driving local farmhouse cheesemakers out of buisiness with their stupid health and safety legislation.

EU - destroying local produce in the interests of agribuisiness.
