    can you find a study that would suggest that the income tax would capture more illegal income than a consumption tax? I doubt you can

    I suspect you concede the fact that a consumption tax means less government control on the majority of citizens.

    So if you want to enact the R P act businesses doing business in state "x" that doesn't tax widget "a" now have to keep records on widget "a" for that state. And it can get more complicated from their. In the mean time I'm fairly confident that the states will fight this.
    lets cut the crap

    what system is going to involve less government control on the citizens as a whole
    it doesn't matter what state someone is from-you collect the same NST on each purchase.

    I have no idea if there is a study for illegal income captured with a consumption tax over an income tax. I dont think most drugs should be illegal. That would solve that.

    I never argued that a cunsumption tax means less governement. I argued that it would seriously damage our economy and is a regressive tax.

    And this means more government intrusion on business.

    that's not the issue-the issue is what system would increase freedom overall and decrease government power over all

    do you have an issue with answering questions honestly?

    The issue is business and I want business to be easier to conduct devoid of government involvement.

    yeah I believe that I really do, you want less government control over businesses

    sorry my BS detector just shorted out

    but thanks again for answering my question with your evasion

    BTW I never ask a question of someone I disagree with if I don't already know the answer.
