Unless they can dismantle the FED no vote for them. Unless they will totally remove income tax and replace it with something like a luxury goods tax no vote. Unless they can remove all debt from gov no vote.

You're actually right in theory, but it benefits none of us to wax intellectual while the country goes down in flames. I'd love for Ron Paul to win, but you saw what happened when he ran. Didn't he get < 5% of GOP voters?? I also support the measure you mention, but that won't happen. Remember, politicians don't so much need the income tax for revenue (as you mention, they can get the money in other ways, like consumption taxes), but it's a major vehicle for their social engineering, class warfare, Marxism BS. Besides that, the code is so complicated that tax prep alone must be a business in the tens of billions of $$ with all the attorneys, accountants, etc.

The Obama win was a complete and utter joke.

Most of us knew this country was going to elect a dem this time around and I believe the GOP saved their best knowing this.

Most of us knew that Obama teamed with the worst congress in history would destroy America and they have.

The majority will be begging for a good GOP tandem to clean Obama off the floor in 2012.

If you can look past all the mistakes, poor decisions and epic failures of Obama and your dem congress you will see that the election of Obama was a total gift to the GOP/

The end of liberals running things in America is about done thanks to Obama and the worst congress in American history!

The gift of Obama keeps on giving.

Any viable tandem from the GOP will defeat Obama or whoever they run in 2012.

The joke is over, time to take America back from the radical left wingers who want to socialize America into a European country.

Thanks for the gift of Obama teaming with the gift of this demwit anti America congress.

The end of liberalism is near in America!
