    At least, no more taxes on income.

    Instead, we raise the sales tax to 23%. That's it. Fair taxes for everybody. No nonsense, no loopholes.

    And if you make the argument that "it's not fair for the poor to pay the same tax rate as the rich," they won't; because at the end of the day, rich people will always buy more things.

    FairTax.org

    Oh, and by the way. I'd like to introduce myself.

    My name is Andrew, I'm 21, I enjoy long walks on the beach and talking politics. Lets discuss, shall we? :eusa_clap:

    Fuck that shit....The "fair tax" is a joke, in the poorest of taste.

    You floated that crap to the founders, they'd have dumped you in the harbor wearing a Sicilian surfboard.

    Fucking bingo is his name-o.

    Also, say hello to a ridiculously fast falling superpower if you get rid of income taxes.

    How about not replacing the income tax with anything? Sounds like the fairest tax there is.

    It's worth mentioning that if our government lived within the confines of the enumerated powers in the Constitution (hey, there's a thought!), there would be no need for an income tax...or a national sales tax.

    I argue it is morally reprehensible to tax a man's labor.

    Oh, bullshit.

    America became an economic superpower without an income tax and would become even more powerful today if it was done away with.

    What's the problem with that?

    That it hurts a bit more psychologically than having the government legally steal from you?

    How is a sales tax not stealing from you?
