No More Voiceless Taxpayers
No More Voiceless Taxpayers
Hello fellow taxpaying citizens. I have created this petition to inform the United States government of our intentions take back our voice and finally have a say in where our taxes are allocated. For too long we have forfeited the right to determine where our tax money goes, and for too long it has been moved away from helping the working class and providing worthwhile investments to the people. Instead, for years, our government has been taking our taxes and defunding education, healthcare, social security, and pumping that money into the war on drugs, and the Military.
We, as signers of this petition, are calling on the US government to hear our voices, and to give us back our power to determine how our hard earned tax money gets spent, at the local, state, and federal levels of government. That means we have the right to say how much education funding, how much social security funding, and how much infrastructure investment funding is allocated to their respective departments.
How this works is simple, the people vote on budget increases or decreases every 6 months to 1 year, or as needed. Budget voting must be widely and loudly announced so that all citizens are fully aware of the voting date, there should be more than enough voting stations in each district so that the maximum waiting time to vote is 15 minutes. Furthermore mail in ballots will also be mailed to those who request, no reason is required. We have voting forms with the current budget for all programs, under each program are 4-8 boxes with varying percentage increases or decreases, you select one box and move on down the list repeating the process for each program. Once all the boxes are tallied, we will collectively look at all the votes.
First the programs that have been chosen by the majority of the voters for a budget decrease, will take affect. If votes are split equally, then we meet in the middle. Once that has been done, we look at the programs that are asking for budget increases and divide them up accordingly, based on the amount of votes they got representative of the rest of the programs also getting for increases. So if the departments of education, energy, and health and Human Resources all voted by a majority to receive 35% increases to their budget, we will then proportionally redivide and redistribute the funds until every cent has been placed in the proper department.
I believe this is the fundamental right of every American tax payer, I believe our rights have been stripped too bare, and we have given up too much. We must take back our power, it is our tax money, we have every right to demand where it is allocated. Thank you for taking the time to read this, please sign, and spread the word. If you have any suggestions or comments please reach out. I am by no means claiming to have a perfect plan, this only works if we all come together and work together towards this collective goal.
