    The Constitution party takes a stance on taxes that I have never heard before and entirely in support of. I am curious what others think of it since the idea is completely different from all of the others I have heard voiced:

    Went there, read up a bit of the website. Wish the world wasn't constructed like it is, or that we could change 200+ years of history. Problem is that we can't change history. I would be happy if the income tax were simply made into a flat tax with an additonal national sales tax.

    1. Does this mean a state-rate tax after they put up tariffs? Or does this mean they realize taht tariffs are a thing of the past, and that the state-rate tax would replace the income tax?

    2. How in the world is this going to pass the House of Representatives when the majority of reps are from large states that stand to lose out from this amendment?
