For the record, I'm not for any tax on individual citizens. However, since that is not part of this discussion I'll just let it be. If forced to make a decision between flat and fair taxes, I believe the fair tax to be far more equitable and less intrusive upon my life. Regarding this conversation I must admit that I find it not only fascinating, but quite amusing how we all discuss this as though any of us actually believe Washington is going to change anything. Other than to add several thousand more pages to the existing code that is. But, I guess we can dream, can't we?
