      This is probably going to piss a few people off, but Personally I
      believe we should do the following:

      1. Get Rid of the irs completely- no income taxes at all.

      2. Set a Tax on Goods- (exmaple) 5% on everything which goes to the
      government for all their programs. That way, no matter what you buy-
      you are paying taxes in to the government.

      Which means, if you pay 10,000 for a car- you pay 5% tax on it to the
      government, if you buy a $100,000 for a hummer, you pay 5% on it.
      Obviously those that are buying in excess will be paying a bit more.

      The tax should not include items Fuel, Groceries but should include
      Homes, Property, Vehicles, all all goods like tvs, stereos etc.

      why? because instead of a few americans paying in taxes everyone would
      be forced to pay taxes.

      it would remove the attack against the poor complaints and the attack
      against the rich complaints. if you want to buy crap, pay for it.

      all the (millions) of illegals in the us would be paying taxes- they’d
      have no choice.. they’re here, they’re going to buy “stuff”. think of
      all the money that would be generated from the millions of illegals

      the pimps, prostitutes, drug dealers that aren’t paying any taxes in on
      the “tips” and income they generate would suddenly have to pay. they’d
      be paying everytime they bought “bling”.

      the us would save billions of dollars by removing the irs. think of all
      the man hours that would no longer have to be paid and the amount of
      stress that people go through filing taxes- the depression
      subscriptions that would drop. etc etc

      if all the people in the us paid taxes in this manner, the government
      would have more money than they could shake a stick at.

      people that are frugal, that aren’t stuck in consumerism hell would be
      the ones that paid the least. if you’re happy with the things you have
      then you’d be saving quite a bit of money, wouldn’t you?

      obviously- we live in a society of gimmee, gimmee, gimmee, we need to
      change how the country is run to keep up with the times.

      thats my .02 on Taxes…
