Please point out which modern day liberals are advocating this violence and this Marxist style gov..
    I didn't post that they were advocating for communism. My point related to the "level playing field" and "pay their fair share" rhetoric that is abundant in today's society. Class war is the hallmark of Marxism, and we certainly have plenty of that going on today...

    I wouldn't say they are marxists as much as I would say they are planned economy socialist with certain fascist tendencies. There is no doubt that they love their centralized planning of the economy.

    Newsflash Marxism is essentially communism.

    Advocating higher tax rates and making a more "fair" economic system is not "class warfare"...

    I would agree with that. They did in fact take a few of their ideas from marxism.

    Apparently you hate states rights to collect sales taxes.

    Here's the thing a lot of people don't realize:


    You are already obligated to pay sales taxes for online purchases.

    But you don't, do you? Pretty much nobody does. If your state levies sales taxes on purchases, you are supposed to be declaring those purchases on your tax returns. But nobody does, really. This just transfers the responsibility to collect those taxes to the retailers, like every other store in freaking history.

    Hate business? Why do you hate your state?

    (disclaimer: sales tax laws vary by state, there may be an exception or two, but I suspect all states with sales taxes behave this way)

    Advocating high tax rates on certain classes because of how much they have is class warfare.

    They don't have the power to force people do anything outside of their state. If you read the thread you would see we have already been over this.

I know that NV gives you a small rebate to cover compliance costs but collecting for 47 states seems a bit daunting, that's why i suggested earlier that the tax be collected in the state where the sale is made as opposed to the state the product is shipped to.

    I'm very unhappy about this new situation since I buy most of my products online, since we have almost no privately owned businesses here. I'm a proud cheapskate and 8.125% is enough to annoy me into changing my shopping habits. If my memory serves, there was original legislation that prevented the states from collecting sales tax on internet sales, so really they are just reverting to the pre-legislation era. Since the states can't print currency, I suppose this will help them provide higher salaries for State employees. Maybe the'll fix the damn roads. Who knows?
    Each state will provide free software to calculate the sales tax to be collected.

    There is no legislation that prevents a state from collecting sales tax from online sales, although some states may choose not to collect it I suppose.

    No
    Advocating tax rates is not class warfare. Class warfare is a struggle against two classes with one class wanting to dominate or destroy the other one.

    But you aren't outside their state if you are selling something to someone in that state.
