I think that the faster money circulates - the better..also money that is well spent is better, as opposed to money spent at gambling....or money that permanently leaves our nation.

    A national sales tax has it's own issues not even considering enforcement. How about paying $110k for a house that's only worth $100k? Or $22k for a $20k car? A new car has always de-valued when you drive it off the lot but by an extra 10%? What was a $20k to $18k is now $22k to $18k in the first mile. The same goes for a new house. In either case would your insurance company pick up the tab for the extra 10% if the car or house is totaled by accident or fire? I doubt it.
    ...One could say that a national sales tax is just another form of tax - which I think is true - I also think that it might be more efficient...
    Of course, this national sales tax is another recent topic....resolution ??

    No, I also know that your kind is very much in the minority in our nation, and, I suspect its a shrinking one.
    True, to an extent about the trembling/fear, but your are there (in your ivory tower) and I am here in my $50K hovel.
    Guess who is happier ..in the knowledge that your are not real, but a personification of man's ignorance and fear........don't feel hurt by this, it offsets all of us..

    The Articles of Confederation, which many Libertarians hold dear, basically relies on real estate taxes.

    I'm OK with a national sales tax as long as stocks and bonds are on the list, too.

    Not to be rude but, have you ever actually considered researching libertarianism?

    You didn't bother providing any references last time I asked so, no, I won't give you the pleasure of snubbing me again.

    Cry all you want about "You don't know what I mean!" but if you won't bother to communicate than it's just more whining with no substance.

    If you are going to make ignorant claims about what libertarianism is about or what libertarians believe I have no obligation to correct you. I will however call you ignorant because you are.

    You are right, most lawyers are inferior to ones like me. 50K hovel? That's less than the rec building I play ping pong and foosball in. I am really happy.

    That's what I've been lead to believe from what little I've read. If it doesn't agree with your view of Libertarianism then post up your view or quit whining that I've got it wrong.

    You're trying to paint this like all Libertarians are alike and believe the same things. I don't buy that for a second. That's like saying all Christians disdain the use of contraceptives and we all know that's crap, too.
