My very own country to shape…

 

People in our country will be allowed to sell and buy legal products at prices they feel suitable, which will be taxed. Government taking away products that consumers demand will not be allowed, it only causes black market trade and sales, and can be very dangerous. ie; prohibition, fluorescent light bulbs. Our country will not subsidize businesses as it only causes increased prices for products and services and corrupt incentives.

 

Source of income for our country will be from fair taxation and natural resources such as gold, silver, oil and aoxcmyst (made that one up but its VERY valuable and only MY country has it-LOL) Fines and fees for criminals will go toward paying for the services needed because of the crime only.

 

Taxation will begin at poverty level, then and a flat tax of 10% after that. There will be ZERO tax loop holes. Criminals will be required to help better society while incarcerated and there will be 0% death/estate tax.

 

Culture and Values:

 

Our country will be a libertarian country consisting of a melting pot of all cultures. Anyone can become a citizen as long as they take a class to know our history, respect and understand our constitution, what you do does not infringe upon others rights or safety and remain law abiding. It is a free country (including marriage). Our countries laws will help to shape our citizens values.

 

Public assistance and welfare:

 

There will be absolutely NO abortion funding or public/medical assistance for abortion from our government!

 

Great incentives to help people off the welfare and cash assistance system will be provided. We will temporarily help those in need, as long as they comply and are providing proof of how the money provided to them is being used. To qualify for food assistance, citizens will be required to take 3 one hour courses each year that they are on assistance- the course will cover how the money is to be spent and will also teach about proper nutrition; the money will not be allowed to be used for junk foods, candy, pop or any other items that aren’t nutritious- purchased items will be reviewed regularly. There will be set time limits for welfare and assistance based on individual needs. Getting support from the system will be worked for in every case by going to the courses and 60 hours of mandated volunteer work per year. Drug testing will not be required, however if it is found that the money/assistance is being used/abused for things other than what is allowed, the person will never be allowed government help again.

 

Laws and consequences:

 

Drug offenses

In our country being a drug addict will NOT be a criminal offense and will be treated as a health condition. The only way drug use will be criminally charged is if its use puts others in danger. Citizens have the right to do with their bodies as they please, as long as they are not harming others- including the unborn. Our countries court system will be similar to that of the U.S. where only an elected judge will determine the sentences; our judges will be ethical, highly educated and reviewed every 6 months to ensure their jobs. There will be no ‘passing back allowed’ (No recommendation of another person other than the judge as a determining factor in the sentencing conditions.) No 3rd party profit will be made off a crime or criminal, ie; if a person is sentenced to treatment, it will be not be in a privately run center, it will be a non-profit government run center with no open ended-ness, the person will know exactly how long, how to comply based on individual cases and how much it will cost up front in order to successfully complete the treatment.

 

Drug Trafficking

Bringing large amounts of drugs in from other countries into other countries is often a very organized crime that can and often does include sex & weapon trafficking; will be penalized very heftily. Large fines and lengthy prison stays for most cases. Small possession cases will not require seeing a judge, petty cases cost tax payers far too much money and ties up the court system, these cases will not be necessary for a judge. These situations will be handled with a fine based on the amount you are caught with and which type of drug it is – it will be the same fine for everyone.
