    Elaborate.

    Current taxes?
    Future Taxes?
    Past Taxes?

    Which taxes are fair?

    Your post make no sense.

    I believe that every American should be paying the same amount of tax as anybody else. Makes no difference if you are the poorest man or the richest man, the taxes should be the same. Everybody, regardless of who they are should be paying income taxes. I've heard that approximately 50% of all Americans pay no taxes at all. I think that is wrong. If you make a dollar it should be taxed just the same as the man who makes a million dollars - no difference. It makes absolutely no sense for people to not pay the same amount of taxes as their fellow Americans. We are all in this together - not just the rich.

    No and absolutely not.

    The feds have a spending problem, not a problem of too little money.

    I'm for cutting spending and ending all direct taxes on productivity.

    Depends on who you talk to, however generally speaking the "fair tax" moniker is just a rhetorical device since labeling ones proposal(s) as a "fair tax" implicitly makes all competing taxation proposals/existing taxes "unfair".

    I support The Fair Tax.

    I believe it is the fairest way to collect taxes and to make sure that everyone pays their share of taxes including drug dealers and illegal aliens.

    No, I don't support it, if anything, I'd love to see the 16th repealed with nothing to replace it or more of a VAT of 1 or 2% with no exemptions or all Federal taxes repealed and each State paying their apportioned share to the Federal government, raising the revenue as they wanted to.

    Oh please. How in the world could we afford the invasion and subsequent occupation of Iraq, with an idea like this?
