    A true, fair & just tax collection and distribution system won't come to fruition until hi-tech e.verification methods are adopted. A country is only as strong as its tax collection and distribution systems..

    Real-time e.verifiable data will stymie politicians from using inside information to buy or sell public traded stocks.

    If you can e.verify temporary workers you can, keep the good and deport the bad. This can cut the immigration problem in-half, add teeth to Homeland Security and stymie fraud.

    Negative Ads:

    It is certainly not "fair and balanced" to show one candidate's negative ads against other candidates as news items.

    This gives those candidates "free press" and gives you the chance to impose your views and opinions on the populous. I know you don't give equal time to all candidates , and even if you did, the odds are that viewers see only some of the ads and would still prejudice most viewers.

    If we can only make these immigration laws stick, and we can begin the deportation buses running non stop

    Streamline immigration by providing incentive cards. The non-banked, under-banked and never banked must organize. All that's needed to receive a load & re-loadable FiCentive smart card of networking opportunity is an e.verfiable ID and address that can be stored in a highly secure networking with plastic depository.

    Networking with plastic methods catering to banked and non-banked millions wasn't available in the 1930's, when jobs for the W.P.A was created. To get an idea of what's available today click-on Site-Map at www ficentive dot com.

    Load & re-loadable Payroll Cards for temporary, or permanent workers, adds teeth to Homeland Security and can streamline the immigration process at the same time.
