Comment: The only logical tax, to me,

(See in situ)

The only logical tax, to me,

is a land tax, by area, that pays for the collective defense of the country. If I own 5% of the United States' collectively defended land, I should pay roughly 5% of the cost to defend it.

Harder-to-defend places like Hawaii might pay a higher tax to live there under the protection of their countrymen.

This could also provide for tax/defense free zones for those who wish to self-insure, so to speak.
