  •  I'll say it again: tax every share of every sale (4+ / 0-)

    for one half of one tenth of one cent, real US money, every time it is bought or sold. That's right, tax both the seller and the buyer. If the buyer, in 18 months, can prove he still has ownership of that stock, return 1/4 the tax money (now tax-free) to the buyer. Repeat at 18 months, and if the buyer still has the stocks 18 months after that, return the other half.

    But the seller -- any seller -- must always pay the tax on every share.

    Stop churning shares via algorithm.
    Stop the threats to the American way of life by the handful of greedy rich.
