I'm 100% with you

personally, I'm on board with that.

Eliminate all kinds of needless garbage from the spending going on today, the sooner the better. Close entire departments. The RP budget proposal is a good start. And once that settles in, we'll see that there is as much that could be cut all over again. Rinse, Repeat.

The only reason I am ok with switching to a so-called "Fair" tax before then is that when everyone is taxed more or less equally, more people will realize they don't like being taxed, and you'll start to hear everyone demanding that we cut the spending.

Politicians wont cut the spending so long as there are groups of voters who they can reward with special treatment and loopholes so they are getting more OUT of the tax system than they are putting in.
