I'm also wary of allowing the government a new method of

taxation. While the intent is to replace the income tax with a fair tax or NST, I can all to easily see ending up with both taxes in place, as is the case in other countries.

Remember the federal excise telecommunications tax, implemented in 1898 to finance the Spanish American War? The "war" lasted four months - the tax lasted 108 years.
