First of all, you work

First of all, you work incrementally toward your goal, or you get nothing done, ever.

Second, there's nothing immoral about sales tax. While I disagree with 99%+ of what the government does today, it does need to exist, and it does need to be funded. The problem with income tax is that it is theft, it is not a voluntary tax, it is simply taken out of whatever you earn, however/whenever you earn it. Meanwhile, purchasing new goods instead of used goods is a choice, and this is how tax should be.

I do agree that the final, ultimate problem is spending, but income tax is still immoral and needs to be replaced, and our complicated tax code leads to/aids a lot of the evil that does go on.
