    Question - would you favor abandoning the federal income tax and replacing it with a direct tax on the states themselves, in proportion to their population (as counted for representation purposes) ?

    This would allow states the right to determine how to raise their share of federal revenue - they could choose a flat income tax, a progressive income tax, property tax, sales tax, or any combinations of taxes legal under their and the U.S. constitutions.

    What say you?

    I say you're fucking obsessed with separating everyone else from their money.

    I say the income tax is theft and should be done away with.

    Only if in conjunction with the repeal of the 17th Amendment.
