taxes

To provide funding for the federal government, Ron Paul supports excise taxes, non-protectionist tariffs, massive cuts in spending. America survived and prospered for 140 years without an income tax, and with a Federal government that generally adhered to strictly constitutional functions, operating with modest excise revenues. The income tax opened the door to the era (and errors) of Big Government. income taxes are responsible for the transformation of the Federal government from one of limited powers into a vast leviathan whose tentacles reach into almost every aspect of American life. Thanks to the income tax, today the Federal government routinely invades our privacy, and penalizes our every endeavor. Income taxes not only diminish liberty, they retard economic growth by discouraging work and production. Ron Paul discusses the income tax and the “FAIR Tax” in May 2007: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qI5lC4Z_T80&feature=player_em...!
