    Im not in favour of a nanny state its just the question.Do you want higher taxes suggests to me do you believe in taxes at all.

    Have you ever listened or read any of his speeches or lectures about social stance other than the fight for Civil Rights?

    No, I don't want higher taxes. I also think it's wrong for others to want to push taxes upon others. Especially when they wouldn't do the same to themselves.

    true, my college was full of pillow headed young socialists who are now big bucks wall street OPM types

    Ever heard of David McIntosh? Dan Quayle Consigliere who was a congressman in Indiana and gave up a lifetime job in the congress to run against a popular dem governor (O'Bannion who won).

    He was head of the Socialist party at Yale. went to U of Chicago Law school and gave up that silly left wing nonsense and helped start the Federalist Society with out mutual friends Steven Calabresi, Lee Liberman (Otis) and Peter Keisler (former acting US Attorney General)

    Hell no. The IRS needs to be eliminated and flat taxes for everyone. Problem solved. No more bitching about some paying more than others. But more importantly than taxes is a balanced budget.

    I'm not sure I like the idea of a federal sales tax. But each state would continue to have its own sales tax.
