"I Don't Remember" who I was told is responsible for the IRS scandal & investigation... - IRS Commissioner (May 17, 2013)

The country was set up so the only direct involvement with the People by the Federal government is through the States. The authors understood human propensity to gravitate towards an over bearing central government, thus making all interface with the People through the States. The Constitution is clear that any direct taxation upon the People by the Feds is to apportion taxes among the states via the same formula as for the number of Representatives.
To advocate a flat tax is to overlook this vital precept of liberty.
Undo what Wilson did
So long as we have a progressive tax, those paying a lower percentage (or nothing) will push for government to do more, and those paying a higher percentage will push for government to do less.
A flat tax will do much to curb the class warfare and cause people who are now unduly paying too little tax, or paying no tax, to "pay their fair share."
"Bipartisan: both parties acting in concert to put both of their hands in your pocket."-Rothbard
Even those beneath me have bigger bonuses than you. Do you even get a bonus? Why are you harassing me... Let me pull up your 1040.
Even my bonuses are sagging, they are bigger than yours. And I am not flat.
This will shift the tax burdens from small business and law abiding, tax-paying individuals to the parasites of society. Now if you are a gang banger, or a drug dealer, or somebody who sits home collecting and eating fast food and dragging down society, sorry you have to PAY UP!! The debate over what exactly tax revenues are put towards is extremely important but this must happen first. It about time people who respect the law get a break!!
He's caling for a FLAT TAX!!! WRONG!!!
No tax. Read the Constitution. The federal government can only collect taxes on duties, imposts and excises. No taxes on our wages. Not now, not ever. Make the beast live withing its means. It's there fault that manufacturing has left, not OURS. Make them whittle down. Cut them at ground level.
I'm stunned this is getting upvoted. Stunned. And quite perturbed.
If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
Unless they are up voting just to raise awareness...?
"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul
but I also think after 10 votes someone would have mentioned that we are not to be taxed on our wages.
Why did someone down-vote you? I'll fix that.
And I can't fix my typo - it should be 'their' not 'there'. What happened to the edit function?
Once a reply is made it can no longer be edited.
I am 100% for ending the irs, but I OPPOSE a flat tax, unless it is zero.
Thanks for clarifying the thread :-)
is unethically premised upon anti-voluntary coercion and should be abolished
