Live Free with the fair tax.

Live Free with the fair tax. It is my biggest problem with GJ. He would have a consumption tax but not a corporate tax. Personally, I would rather see no consumption tax but have a corporate income tax. Corporations do not have rights so we may apply the cost/benefit ratio to them.

Your choice is to accept what is politically possible or allow everything to continue as is. Name calling and wishful thinking do not override inevitability.

For President, you can only select from those who qualified for the ballots in the various states. If you do not agree with that restriction, then you need to boycott the General election because the only choice is from those who the public will elect. Politics is not for everyone.

Gary Johnson did an excellent job in this short interview. He is doing a great job injecting a message into the mainstream that there are viable alternatives to the dangerous policies that the monopoly parties want to shove down our throats. But, if Ron Paul is your only guy, then no one will else will qualify to carry the message. In that case, sit back and watch the voice of the monopoly indoctrinate the blind public in the best methods to shut down America as we knew it.

In terms of Fair Tax, it is the only way to get rid of the IRS. Laws do not magically materialize. Each one starts with a Bill. There are zero bills to eliminate 100% of all taxes overnight with enough support to pass. Fair Tax has almost eighty co-sponsors in Washington. So, your choice is to eliminate the IRS (and eventually the 16th Amendment) with Fair Tax or just keep the IRS and 16th Amendment while letting the monopoly take over America until we can magically eliminate all taxes some other way.

I wrote the article at the following link to clarify the misconceptions about the Fair Tax that are being used to unfairly slander a valuable proposal and exclude Gary Johnson as a viable liberty candidate for 2012:

But I think his argument that it will be neutral, is sound.

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

I don't like the fair tax either.

I would much rather have NO taxes, letting tariffs fund a small federal government.
All other programs should be funded at the state level.
