The poorest of the poor are buying stuff with welfare/tax money. Not every state does this, but CA doesn't charge a sales tax on food.
At least the states would be getting some of that "welfare" money back in taxes then. And the food exemption can easily be changed.

Make everything sold subject to the sales tax, including services like haircuts & oil changes etc.

Not only does that capture taxes from the poor, it also gets taxes from illegal immigrants and drug dealers etc.

LOL!!! If I'm not mistaken, I would guess you have the same fuzzy logic calculator that the government uses. That's why we are several trillions of dollars in debt and only getting deeper. Sort of like using one credit card to pay for another. Eventually you are in deep trouble.

Those Hispanics who steadily keep voting for the Democratic Party will some day find themselves in the same or worse financial disadvantage as when they started.
The Democratic Party is not about helping the poor in achieving their dreams. The Democratic Party is about keeping one down and keeping one dependent on the Government in one way or another.
So, the republicans are wasting their time attempting to pander to the Hispanic voters.
One day Hispanics will wake up and realize the Democratic Party is not what they thought/want/need.
But, only if it's not to late and we succeed in getting rid of the traitors in our WH.
As long as the Leftist are in charge and enacting the policies that are destroying our way of life,their is no hope for anyone,let alone the Hispanics. No one is immune.

Whatever. I was just offering a way to get illegals and the poor to actually pay taxes like all you "conservatives" want. Feel free to reject it and the poor an illegals will continue paying no taxes at all.

The choice is yours.

Blacks haven't, what makes you think hispanics will.

As long as the GOP continues their anti-hispanic policies, they risk losing the hispanic vote for generations to come.

My way of life isn't being destroyed; I'm doing just fine, which is why I voted with millions of other Americans to re-elect President Obama.

What the "conservatives" want is cheap labor. They can go to hell also. I want what's best for America and Americans. Not illegal alliens, the uber rich, etc. The Democrats, Republicans, Independents have failed and continue to fail the American people as a whole.

IMHO, GOP does not have an anti-Hispanic policy.It is a made up term.
No group (IMO) should be pandered too.
Any political party/Politician who put America first and foremost has my respect and those who pander will never get my vote.

Many Americans have lost one way or another with Obamas policies. Many of us are able to move on and work our ways around it, but many of our Fellow Americans have low skills/less education and are losing big time due to the illegal alien coming across our porous border.
You are doing good,many are still doing good and I applaud you all,but many are not and still haven't seen anything yet. Hispanic ,new legal immigrants and illegals( i will continue to say) will vote for The Democratic Party which will keep them dependent/slaves to this party.
(don't say illegals don't vote cause that is a lie).

The majority of hispanics view the current GOP policies as being anti-hipanic. That's what matters. The simple fact you don't see current GOP policies as being anti-hispanic is why the GOP will never get any large portion of the hispanic vote.

Until you can understand why their policies are viewed by the majority of hispanics as being anti-hispanic, then you'll continue to be confused as to why the majority of hispanics will continue to vote for the Dems.

We are counting on the continued collective ignorance of the GOPasaur supporters to put another Dem (likely Hillary) in the White House in 2016.

I beg-your-pardon? I am in no way confused. Hispanic are a small percentage of the voter base,but with Obama opening the flood gates I understand this percentage is growing. Still i do not believe Republicans in our WH need to pander as Obama steadily is doing. What needs to be done is continue to educate those who feel the Government is their caretaker/giver. Illegals and many Hispanics believe they cannot survive without the Government and that needs to change,they need to realize that is not the case nor has to be.

Only because we allow it. As long as Americans are divided, it will remain the same. Our government is too big, and has too many Americans working for them. If we didn't, the manufacturing jobs would have to come back to America or there would be hell to pay.

Non-white were more than 50% of all children born in the US for the past 2 years, and will be for the foreseeable future. Hipanics are aready the majority in California and will be the majority in Texas and dozen other states soon.

How do you know what hispanics believe? Have you ever talked to them?

"they need to realize".....

Oh yeah, that attitude is really gonna work.

Have you idiots learned NOTHING from Romney's 47% comments?

Keep up the good work. People like you are ensuring the GOPasaurs never see the inside of the White House for generations to come.

And you've got the magic potion to unite all Americans?

How about the uber-rich and those working for the govt you obviously despise? Will your magic potion work on uniting them with all Americans as well?

I don't despise government workers. I despise big government and government unions. We need to change things, so the uber-rich are treated just like every other American. If that happened, they wouldn't have so much power and advantages that ordinary Americans don't have. Too f-ing bad.

Yet, you want to tax the poor man so he pays his fair share. ROTFLMAO!!!

Then you're a small minority within a much larger minority. Just proves there's 1 or 2 idiots within every group; like the 1% of gays who vote Republican.

USA has only 500 years old.

Japan has more than 12,000 years.

That civilization is sample for the world.

The history of Japan encompasses the history of the islands of Japan and the Japanese people, spanning the ancient history of the region to the modern history of Japan as a nation state. Following the last ice age, around 12,000 BC, the rich ecosystem of the Japanese archipelago fostered human development. The earliest-known pottery found in Japan belongs to the J&#333;mon period. The first known written reference to Japan is in the brief information given in Twenty-Four Histories in the 1st century AD. The main cultural and religious influences came from China.

It reminds me of the days when kings lived in castles, and they had their servants/presidents, politicians, government worker, etc. As long as they got to live inside the kingdom instead of being on the outside, they did what their master told them. F everybody else.
