Forgot to mention that a flat tax would not address any of these issues.

All-in-all, a very positive article, and I love to see this many people talking (and most of them in a civil way) about the Fair Tax. A couple points. First, under the Fair Tax, I get to choose when my taxes are paid. Big purchases of new items can be deferred if my pocketbook is getting slim. I can choose to buy a used car (no Fair Tax collected on used items). I have much more control over how much of my spending power goes to Uncle Sam. Also, Mr. Mitchell did not mention the fact that the Fair Tax would remove the gag order on our nation's pastors. Before the IRS began holding that hammer over the pulpits of our land, pastors were a driving force in educating and warning their congregations about right and wrong, and about wrong-doing by our politicians. Oh, and no more 990 forms for non-profit organizations, either, or the IRS threatening Tea Party groups, requiring the minutes of board meetings or insisting that applicants for non-profit status report the content of emails, telephone conversations, names and addresses of major donors, or a transcript of the prayers invoked by the board of directors.
