Posted on 07/16/2012 2:24:56 PM PDT by Halfmanhalfamazing
In a dramatic change, Republican governors including New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie are supporting sales taxes on online purchases in an attempt to send more revenue to state coffers.

And here it is. Watch. Days from now, weeks from now, months from now, years from now, some leftist, some Obamunist wannabe, whoever the next Harry Reid is, the current Harry Reid, whoever.....
Is gonna go to the podium and say "we need internet taxes across the board, and this is a bipartisan issue. both democrats, and republicans have called for internet taxes, so it must be done."
Or however it will end up being worded.
This is GOP-E Enabling of leftist causes. Chris Christie, you are the progressive enabler of the day.
We need to continually primary these big government republicans out of existence. We cannot afford this anymore! Republicans are screwing this country as fast as the democrats are, and we conservatives stand alone.
Christie is a major disappointment. But then again, so is the Republican Parry in general.
The only thing that can potentially be said in defense of this is how it’s being done willingly on the part of Amazon.
That’s simply not good enough.
We know what progressives do. We know the types of things they will say. We know how this will be used in the future.
I hope Christie is a one termer, and never comes back into our lives again.(in a political sense)
Why is anyone surprised at this?
Christie is Big Government LIBERAL!
A Northeastern RINO. Like the Bushies and Mittens.
Mail-order catalog sales never had to pay sales tax,
because of the added cost of shipping and handling.
How are internet sales any different?
(Government needs to spend less, not kill a new industry.)
Savage is right, the only difference between the democrats and the GOP is purely cosmetic.
My governor (Rick Snyder , Michigan) is also a supporter.
What do you want? A heart attack(D) or cancer(R)??
It's all the same to me. I know I'm going to die, sooner or later.Choose your poison.
This is another reason I don’t like Christie.
What is so darn wrong with choking off spending? Why is it that politicians have to tax everything that moves and half of what’s dead?
Flip it around and cut back your state taxes. See how many companies relocate and provide new jobs.... jobs for people that pay taxes. Be competitive not punitive.
I’m not surprised. I’m furious.
I’m furious at the merits of the argument at hand, but also because of the enablement aspect.
We have got to change the GOP into a party of bold colors, and get rid of these pale pastels.
As it stands right now, outside of the new 2010 tea party candidates America does not have two parties(and a handful of others doing great work, such as Demint)
Republicans are more than happy to compromise with progressives, but they very rarely compromise with conservatives.
Christie has done some good things but his problem, he is still a RINO country club executive/establishment type who is out of touch. One good thing from Christie was he pretty well eliminate state safety inspections for cars.
I have an honest question.... Let’s say I open a business, take on overhead, employees, etc. Then some guy in another state does the same, but undercuts me on price through the internet. Wouldn’t I want a sales tax to protect my business? Create an even playing field?
Good thing Christie’s last name starts with a “C” instead of a “K”.... !
The majority of gov't spending is a just money-laundering schemes for leftist politicians. Eliminate the programs, eliminate the spending, eliminate the left.
-—————Wouldnt I want a sales tax to protect my business?——————
You would want to work to lower the taxes in your own state. That way your state has as low of tax burden as his state does.
And!!!!! And, you would want to sell your own stuff online as well. Now you have an even playing field.
The answer is *NOT* to punish the other guy. Because in the process of punishing the other guy, you punish us all.
That’s what progressives do.
