I was made aware of this concept during my last deployment and I can't understand why we don't have this. Get rid of the Federal Income tax and institute a national sales tax. The IRS could be reduced in size and power (probably why we don't have this), the tax code could be reduced to a pamphlet-size book, and everyone who purchases goods or services in or from this country would pay tax. That would be cool. A mexican drug lord wants a Lamborghini(sp)? He's going to put money into our treasury by paying sales tax on it. I can't think of any bad sides, but then again, I'm a dumbass. Any thoughts?
