Empirical US Foreign Assistance Statistics at the Close of the American Imperial Century:

An Act to Secure a Voluntary 1 percent ODA Tax on Income

 

FULL 62 Pg. REPORT HA-31-9-10

 

By Anthony J. Sanders

Be the differences, perversions, prejudices and persecutions of the Democratic and Republican (DR) bipartisan system dissolved to enact this bill that will refer the problem of contributing 0.7 percent of the US GDP to ODA to the sovereign generosity of the American taxpayers

 

Nearly everyone agrees the UN Millennium Goals (MDGs) for 2015 are the focus of international economic cooperation at the dawn of the 21st century, a century destined for global income equality.

 

Everyone has enjoyed the prosperity selfless work to achieve these noble goals brings despite the specter of war in the Middle East and Central Asia (MECA) that woke us from our reverie of the 20th century, the American century, to do our duty as global citizens.

 

Everyone has suffered the impoverishing and irrational consequences of subsidizing the rich.

 

We cannot fight the law of supply and demand as we walk the fine line of the global poverty line - $1-2 a day.

 

Now is the time to apologize for the flaws in foreign relations law that enabled the US to steal the 20th century and continues to disable the fulfillment of human rights at home and abroad

 

Now is the time to create a just and lasting peace so everyone’s rights can be fulfilled and the world will prosper.

 

It is 2010 and the US is credited with around 0.2 percent of GDP contribution to ODA.

 

Now is the time for the US to dedicate itself to achieving the MDG target for industrialized nations of contributing 0.7 percent of GDP to ODA by 2015

 

The US cannot rely upon being the biggest national contributor in the world.

 

The EU contributes more than three times as much and is on target to achieve the 0.7 percent of GDP goal by 2013.

 

If the US does not begin focusing upon achieving this goal now we are certain to fail.

 

If the US fails the US will be hard pressed to prove we are not too decadent and unequal to even qualify as an industrialized nation anymore.

 

If the US fails the carefully monitored statistical failings of the MDGs in developing nations will be so much more severe.

 

The US cannot fail.  The American people have always proven that where there is a will there is a way.  In the basket case of industrialized nations negotiating to appreciate developing nation currencies, the way forward is for the US to achieve the 0.7 percent of GDP goal by;

 

(1)   accounting for our uniquely high levels of private philanthropy and;

(2)   leading the world by enacting a 1 percent international development payroll tax that would be voluntary until we hope it will be enforced in 2020 to celebrate the democratic election of the Secretary of the UN Charter Legitimate Edition.

 

Section 1 The Empirical Master Table of US Foreign Assistance

 

A.The US Census Bureau, in the Department of Commerce, publishes a series of statistics on US Foreign, Economic and Military Assistance.

 

1.Under this act, the Department of State and USAID shall both publish a similar, up-to date, table, from the most recent year.

 

a.       This table shall be prominently linked to their Internet homepages.

b.      This table shall prominently display the total foreign assistance expenditures of their programs and all US foreign assistance programs, estimated at 22 separate government agencies, by recipient country and multilateral institution.

c.       This table shall differentiate economic, health and military assistance and indicate how much assistance is accepted by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and UN Development Programme (UNDP) as Official Development Assistance (ODA).

d.      This table shall account for private tax deductible contributions and missions to developing nations that qualify as Official Development Assistance (ODA).

e.       This table may be used to make projections of future supply and demand

 

2. The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) World Factbook shall use these statistics to track both US foreign assistance and UN ODA flows in the country profiles.

 

B. This master table for the bounty of US foreign assistance shall serve as the focal point for domestic supporters of US foreign policy, diplomacy and development to levy and administrate ODA to developing nations and the world’s poorest people.

 

1.This empirical master table shall defeat military imperialism by helping to enforce the $800 million global total for US military assistance under 22USC(32)§2312 and $3 million country norm under 22USC(32)§2314 thereby learning the Arabic numeral zero violence to the satisfaction of the African nations we hope will welcome US African Command onto their soil.

 

Section 2 American Century Legacy

 

A.Since the codification of the civil law in 1924 US foreign relations law has been strangely sabotaged in a particularly perverse and depraved fashion by the Democratic and Republican (DR) bipartisan system who must now redress these flaws for the security of the American people and to restore the national reputation and dignity.  They are:

 

1. Title 22 Foreign Relations and Intercourse (a-FraI-d) needs to be amended to Title 22 Foreign Relations (FR-ee). 

 

2. The USAID Bureau for Asia and the Near East (ANE) needs to be completely dissolved into the Bureaus for the Middle East and Central Asia (MECA) and South East Asia (SEA).

 

3. All international offices of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) need to be closed immediately, before the agency name is changed to Drug Evaluation Agency (DEA) and transferred to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with a new charge of prohibiting all disease pathogens prone to abuse in bio-medical research.

 

4. The Court of International Trade of the United States (CoITUS) needs to change its name to Customs Court (CC) and engrave a memorial for those who died in the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

 

5. Having performed these amendments the US should have the standing to publicly apologize for sabotaging the UN Charter at the San Francisco Conference with a military dictatorship and begin the process of ratifying the UN Charter Legitimate Edition (UNCLE) to establish a legitimate democratically elected tax administration.

         

Section 3 Voluntary International Development Payroll and Corporate Income Tax

 

A.Chapter 4 Voluntary 1 percent International Development Payroll Tax shall be inserted in the repealed Chapter 4 of Subtitle A Income Tax of the Internal Revenue Code at Title 26 of the United States Code Section 1471 it shall state simply,

 

1.Employees and corporations shall be given the option, beginning in FY 2011, to have 1 percent of their income or profits automatically deducted to contribute to the Official Development Assistance (ODA) programs of USAID.

 

2.This tax is voluntary, it is however a tax and is not tax deductible.

 

3. If the contributor changes their mind and decides to terminate their contribution, at any time during the year, whatever money that has been contributed that year shall be refunded.

 

4. This program is temporary until 2020 when there will be a referendum to enforce this tax in celebration of the hypothetical ratification of the UN Charter Legitimate Edition and election of a civilian Secretary of the UN and finance of the social security style international tax administration that actually pays benefits to people living below or near the world poverty line of $1-$2 a day.

 

5. The immediate goal is to increase the supply of US ODA from 0.19 percent, $22 billion in 2007, to +/- $105 billion annually by 2015, a 477 percent increase, to achieve the agreed upon 0.7 percent of GDP contribution to ODA target, as demanded of industrialized nation in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) for 2015.
