    To stay on topic, what policies would be best to make sure small businesses don't close shop. Would you cut or freeze taxes on these businesses, or would you do something else?

    And yes, what is done is rarely what ought to be done. I already know our leaders will very rarely do the right thing, but I'm more interested in what the right thing is.

    Do not raise taxes on them...back-off Obamacare...relax OSHA just a bit...relax credit on small business (make it a bit easier for struggling businesses). Those are starters.

    In short, reduce government, don't raise taxes.

    Milton Friedman, the arch-conservative economist, speaking of ways to limit or reduce the size of government, offered this prescription: “How can we ever cut government down to size? I believe there is only one way: the way parents control spendthrift children, cutting their allowance. For the government, that means cutting taxes. Resulting deficits will be an effective – I would go as far as to say, the only effective – restraint on the spending propensities of the executive branch and the legislature.”
    ~Milton Friedman, The Cato Institute, Cato Handbook on Policy (Washington D.C.: The Cato Institute, 2005) p. 113, cited in Starving The Beast

    Other Discussions are for more serious discussion and stricter moderation. The rules apply but, on the positive side, we will also require that all posts make a contribution be it information, question or argumentation, and on the negative side we will not allow trolling, inflammatory remarks, personal attacks, or off-topic comments.

    This sort of inflammatory post is not appropriate for the "other discussions" portion of the forum. This is a warning.
