If taxation without representation was an outrage that sparked the Revolution, why is representation without taxation acceptable?
What if only those who pay income taxes were allowed to vote?

Mike Huckabee has an idea - the fair tax. Toss out all taxes, the entire code and all of the different taxes we pay on all the different items and pay one tax rate. At first, it makes you withdraw in fear, but then, you think - no sales tax, no traditional income tax, no gas tax, no service tax, no capital gains tax, no tax on your phone, no tax on your electricity, no tax on Snickers but not Twix, and no taxes I can't even think of or imagine. We will pay less for all of that stuff and in turn pay one flat tax. All people have to pay the same amount. So, if you make $30,000, you pay $3,000, if you make $300,000, you pay $30,000, and if you make $15,000, you pay $1,500. It is all fair and you have the money from not piddling it away on taxes everywhere you turn.
