I like the idea of a consumption tax

The fact is even a constitutionally sized government requires and income. If no one is willing to have tariffs, excise taxes, or anything else then how is the government supposed to get income to even to its constitutional duty?

A consumption tax brings all underground money above ground and doesnt discriminate. There are no loop holes for the top 1% to exploit. If you dont want to pay the taxes then save your money. We need to save and invest more anyways. A consumption tax will promote savings which is what we need. Enough of this Keynesian consumption promotion.
