"I would guess Ron Paul knows more about the Fair Tax and has known it much longer than 99% of us. Disagree?"
I do not disagree. On the contrary. I very much agree Ron Paul knows alllllll about the Fair Tax and the fact he has never introduced a Fair Tax bill in Congress speaks for itself. It's a pos plan.
It's a POS plan that is loaded with flaws (how do the Amish get the "pre-bate" w/out a Social Security Number, etc.) and has a high probability of some very serious unintended consequences (cashless society. Government bans and censorship via excessive taxation on sales of guns, ammo, alcohol, tobacco, fatty foods, sugary drinks, material of "explicit content", etc.). At the very least, it would be a bureaucratic nightmare to replace our current bureaucratic nightmare.
