I've got something against Huck - I mean, politics is an aggregate function whereas theosophy is a unit in and of itself. Don't get me wrong, I like the Southern Baptist thing (right after Quaker and Anglican as Christians go), I've been inside one of the seminaries, and compared to the Born-Again thing, which in and of itself, even in W-Bush is a self-correcting problemÂ… Just that for what it's worth, no quarter, I mean, I like to think I'm about something; they like to think they're about something - let's each do our thing and see who comes out on top.

As such, never, never my heart's blood, would I want to see him as president - better to have Obama or Hilly in a sense just to play some things through - but as VP, maybe. Gore was a VP after all, and his BS didn't get out of hand, Huck's extremely congenial, and then you've got the flat tax which is like crack to a conservative-leaning Libertarian like myself. I'd say I can dig it relative to he-of-five-grandmothers or otherwiseÂ…

The FairTax is nothing like the flat tax.

I was all set to type a sarcastically gobsmacked response ("You're voting for MCCAIN??!! No!! I NEVER would've guessed!!!") but am actually gobsmacked that your vote is conditional on Huckabee as VP. All this yapping about Obama and you're not even sure you're voting for McCain? Excellent.

I don't like to make a thing about the methods - practicality should dictate them, as opposed to anyones ideas about society - but hitting it at the end-consumer level I'm all about. Liberals love to take the definition of the purpose cash what pleases 'em that particular second, to my mind flat sales tax would bring it back to it's core functionality, scrub away this moral/utopian carrot-and-stick BS.

A flat tax would retain the IRS - The FairTax eliminates the IRS.

Flat tax is a wonderful idea compared to the so-called Fair Tax. One low % for everyone.

In reality , SOME federal agency would still collect any tax, monitor compliance, deal with non-payers, etc

Just because it might not be called 'the IRS' doesn't mean you're any better off.

You have to look at the likely consequences of each proposed system.

I have looked at all 3 and The FairTax is the best.
