fair tax research
I have recently become particularly interested in the tax proposal with the focus group-approved name FairTax to replace all federal taxes with a flat national sales tax. There are a number of nuances that make the proposal interesting, and I have started a couple in-depth discussions with some people about this.
When it comes right down to it, I am currently quite opposed to the details of the plan. However, I do respect their attempt to radically alter our tax code, which I think does need to be done, and most of their approach, as well. For example, they actually want to change the Constitution, which is how I think radical things should be done (such as Prohibition under the 18th amendment vs. our current war on drugs).
So, looking for two things. First, if you are interested in this or know someone who is, let me know. Second, if there are details or outside research you would like to fill me in on to change my mind, I would certainly welcome such information. (In other words, don't give me stuff from their website or by affiliated individuals and organizations)
Here's the website for the movement.
