Taxes and greed

I took Mr. Alexander’s advice and watched the video of the prayer breakfast and Dr. Carson’s whole speech, it was enlightening on many subjects! Here was a man who came up from extreme poverty and made it in a world dominated by those who had much more! He is to be given credit for his accomplishments and his faith in God! This being said Dr. Carson’s simple solution to our taxation problem is like the Holy Grail, it doesn’t exist! Our tax code needs to be simplified, dismantled and changed but in a way that is fair to everyone! As Jesus said to the Pharisees “Render to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s”!

I wish it were as easy as Dr. Carson believes, but sadly it isn’t. As for the 602 banks in the Cayman Islands, our government should pursue those who would seek their fortunes and safety in our Country and make them pay their fair share! I don’t want to hurt anyone for making it, as this is the American dream! It isn’t a question of hurt but rather fairness when it comes to taxation!
