I know that. I was responding to post that a revolution is needed to get any real tax reform. And my solution to the problem of their not being one is to end withholding and tax reform would happen faster than one could imagine.
I have concerns about a national sales tax, although it's certain to be the lessor of two evils against the income tax. I doubt the framers of the constitution, when impowering the federal government to impose excise taxes would even recognize the concept of a consumption tax. And how would this society change when you are personally responsible for delivering-up to the government every penny on every transaction? We'll all be tax collectors.
