We are all concerned about people with economic problems and must find a way to help.
Everything starts in some way with the LAND on which we stand.
God gave the LAND and natural resources to the HUMAN FAMILY for its SURVIVAL.
But God said “You are not to OWN the LAND. You are pilgrims and sojourners with me.”
No person can survive without access to land and natural resources.
No person has ever made a square foot of land or an ounce of oil, air or water.
No person has ever had a right to profit from OWNING land or natural resources.
So where do people get the land they need to survive?
God gave the land to the whole family for its survival so we need to get a portion from that family.
How will we get our share? By paying RENT for the land we need to survive.
That RENT to the human family can come through our current property tax system.
All we need is to make a basic change in the way that property tax is levied.
TAX LAND so high there is no profit just in OWNING the land
and remove all taxes from PRODUCTIVE USE of land.
RESULT? Since there is no profit in OWNING land, all LAND SPECULATORS will leave town and now that there is no penalty for USING LAND PRODUCTIVELY we will see improvement to homes and neighborhoods and have a rebuilding of factories, higher employment etc.
This change in the real estate property tax system will cause such an increase in tax revenue
that it will enable infrastructure rebuilding, expansion of medical and education opportunities
and the advantages escalate as economy expanses.
Well these are my thoughts this afternoon and I’m wondering what you think.
Let me know what you think and pass it along to your friends and ask them to give me
their thought also.
Thanks and God Bless you for your concern for the economically disadvantaged.
