  • i think we should have one tax, and one tax only, a consumption tax. you pay it once a year and that is your contribution. No income taxes, no tax on food, clothing, shelter, and other purchases, no taxes on death or marriage, No taxes ....ya know like our forefathers died for when we left King George and his friends behind.

  • Sure, why not? We're going to be paying out the a$$ for everything soon so may as well add alcohol to the list.
