sorry to jump down here

but this sentence

"In fact, the only reason you argue specific forms of taxation as acceptable is that you have grown so accustomed to the overburdening of current taxation that you would accept any form of relief."

has given me pause.

i've never looked it at that way.
i considered indirect tax a way to (possibly) contain the government. make food too expensive.... it wouldn't be politically viable. (pretending for a moment that the welfare state did not exist)

sorry to hit and run, but i need to finally log off and install a throttle position sensor on the states car that i rent.
