GDP - gross domestic product, which is turnover and not profit. My mind boggles at the crazy idea that somehow you think taxes are paid on turnover rather than on profit. That is such war industrial complex thinking, just like demanding war spending by NATO the North American Territorial Occupation farce countries must be 2% of the nations GDP sounds so low doesn't. When you do the numbers and poke through a countries GDP to find out what the actually taxable profit was and how much actual tax was paid, all of a sudden that 2% of GDP becomes 20% to 30% of income taxes (especially taking into account offshoring profits where a countries GDP goes up but not one cent of tax is paid, whilst it's economy is strip minded of capital, typical of the majority of major US corporations as US parasites on it's vassal states with US occupational forces on hand to control 'er' protect those foreign governments). Lies upon lies upon lies to feed insatiable psychopathic greed.
