1040 culture—like it or not—exists because the United States government taxes personal income to raise trillions to fund the federal treasury. This amount will undoubtedly increase in the future—but so will American commerce and the GDP. The focus of this book will be how we can raise 3.5 or 5.0 or 6 trillion dollars efficiently and accurately while eliminating the unwieldy 1040 tax return process. The TFP plan, basically, is to “automatically” assess a 1 cent fee (.01 dollar) on all trackable transactions in the US (or related international transactions using American financial institutions). Say good bye to tax preparation, deductions, refunds, credits—this will be a pay-as-you-go system. Tax audits and tax-related stress will become history.

Begin a captivating journey into an era that was both a time of overly indulgent forays into hedonism, as well as a unique period in our nation’s history, when young Americans, politicized by the draft and the horrors of the Vietnam War, awakened to their sense of self and took responsibility for building a finer world.

By the author of Border Crossings, this is an incisive portrayal into the essence of the American Myth as it played out on campuses and communes, in financial districts, and killing fields. It is a bright light on a time of revolutionary change, granting access to the thoughts, feelings and experiences of vividly drawn characters along side some of the cultural and political icons of the era. Sisters, Donna and Sally are bookends of the times trying to carve out their own ideals of peace and romance.
