    It does not matter if you are Lib or Conserv. Black or White.Hate USA or Love USA,Rich or Poor. You live here and work here and reap the benifits of the USA you should pay for it. Like it or not you either pay with your wallet or your soul. (ask Bernie Madof,and now his wife too much greed does get punished)
    So now some will say oh oh what about the poor--indigent is one thing poor is another we have no poor any more in the USA only people working the system. I have no problem helping the needy
    but this is realy a famly thing..Class warfare is where we are today
    The big fight is taking from one class to give to another I do not even have a personal problem with that its just how its done that is wrong INCOME TAXING IS WRONG SHOULD BE A FAIRER WAY
    THERE IS AN OTHER CHOICE PROPOSED CALLED THE FAIR TAX
    THAT EVERYONE WILL CONTRIBUTE BASED ON WHAT YOU SPEND AND THIS IS THE FAIREST IDEA I HAVE SEEN YET.
    If you have a better one let us know.

    I have a better way.

    The editecian 100% inheritance tax.

    No taxes to be paid AT ALL during your lifetime, but a 100% taxation at death.

    All money goes to the state to be totally distributed into the bank accounts into the National FED (that is actually a public bank) of the each citizen, every quarter.

    How do our governments support themselves, you ask?

    Excellent question. Same way they've been expecting education to do it....bake sales.

    Just kidding..same way they did if for the first 150 years or so by imposing tariffs.

    NOw I hear people bitch about taxes all the time.

    But oddly, when I give them a surefire way to end all taxes, none of my wealthy scion chums buy into that.

    Wonder why?

    Oh, yeah, that's right...because they are already wealthy and know they don't really pay all that much in taxes.

    And the thought of a meritocratic society where everyone REALLY has a chance of making it scares the hell out of them.

    I guess this means that you are self-identified as either having no family that you love, or no material wealth. Or both.

    Sad.

    Even with the Fair Tax system, there will still be the entitlement class. How long and how many trillions have we spent on the war on poverty? The left created this case to maintain a voting block and we are now seeing the efforts of the current president and congress updating this effort with the illegal folks in this country.

    I guess those that "have" wealth will just park their money offshore, just like so many do today. That would keep it untouchable. I guess I won't buy into your solution either.

    Interesting...

    Can you give a little more information on this? Would it be in a way like a federal sales tax?
