     Preserving The American Political Philosophy


Comparing New Hampshire and Maine as New Hampshire considers a Business Flat Tax and Maine digs deeper into a two tier taxation policy- One set of rules for businesses providing income above the median household income and another set of rules for business providing income at the median household level or below

     Preserving The American Political Philosophy: Middle Class Data Missing In Action In the Advanced Age of Data Management


This posts asks why there is no ap to be found that visualizes the morphing of the 1950's bell curve representing the distribution of wealth in the USA from the start of the twentieth century to present? Why do we get only static representations showing the top & the bottom with the middle missing in action?

     Preserving The American Political Philosophy


New Hampshire shows true economic innovation among the states with a Business Flat Tax. With so many other states practicing special interest economics- with "opportunity zones" and "targeted sector" -creating a country in which the state controls the means of production- Could New Hampshire be heralding the way for the re-emergence of a genuine free enterprise system in the USA?

     Preserving The American Political Philosophy: In 1981 Maine Legislature Grants Itself The Authority to Centrally Manage Economy


In 1981 The Maine Legislature deemed itself the authority to centrally manage the Maine economy bypassing getting the consent of the governed. In the process they established a state municipal bond bank and granted it unlimited power. In the years since the legislature continued to construct a massive network of state corporations. Today managing the state corporations is seen as the primary function of the legislature's and administration by those in that position. Although all must take an oath to uphold the constitution, when asked about the Constitutional prohibition against the legislature chartering corporations, the usual answer is "Oh where does it say that ?" Only in the section on Legislative Powers!
