A Libertarian's Dream [VIDEO]

[If you would like to contribute to People for Polity, please email]


I was deliberating with a few friends the other day over a recent article published at The Blaze (including AlwaysRight of PfP) which analyzed the following statement from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV):

"Millionaire job creators are like unicorns. They’re impossible to find, and they don’t exist…Only a tiny fraction of people making more than a million dollars, probably less than one percent, are small business owners. And only a tiny fraction of that tiny fraction are traditional job creators…Most of these businesses are hedge fund managers or wealthy lawyers. They don’t do much hiring and they don’t need tax breaks."

People for Polity is of the belief that millionaires are vital for job growth...they just aren't currently creating jobs despite the Bush Tax Cuts.

The debate took a turn, where I began to imagine a world where a zero percent corporate tax rate worked...and then explained why it could only exist in theory (aka dreamland).  

More after the break...

Dylan Ratigan: United Republic [VIDEO]

[Once again, welcome back to People for Polity.  If you would like to contribute, please email]


Today, I would like to post something which I believe to be the most important goal of restoring our great nation:  eliminating money from politics.  Until this is accomplished, big business will continue to buy elections and influence public policy with their money.

Dylan Ratigan is this movements champion with his organization called United Republic.  He is leading the charge to eliminate the legalized money laundering also known as super-PACs.  The first step is to reverse the Supreme Court's sell-out decision of the landmark case of Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission which ruled that corporations are people.  The second step is a constitutional amendment eliminating money from politics.  

The following is from an email sent by Ratigan to those who signed up for his newsletter.  Please sign up for his newsletter and sign his petition to eliminate money from politics; this is a nonpartisan issue.

94 percent of elections in 2010 were decided by the candidate with the most money.  Do you have enough money to influence legislation?
