And a NST is voluntary? Hardly. The fairest tax of all would be:

     budget / # residents = individual's tax bill.

100% voluntary? No. But more voluntary than any other tax system. Unless you believe that the government can force you to make purchases you don't want to make.

yikes.

That give's my family a tax bill of > $26,000.

Talk about burdoning the poor. That is the entire income for some families and pocket change to others.

So the wealth of an individual (whether measured in income or in consuption) should make no difference?

Yes the Fair Tax is voluntary. You voluntarily buy stuff retail (necessities up to the poverty level are pre-bated), and if you want something else you can buy it used. In other words, one would voluntarily buy a new IPOD and pay the tax, or that person could elect to buy it used. Therefore, the tax is voluntary.

Voluntary taxes are what the Fore Fathers had in mind. This commie crap about progressive taxes and forcing individuals to give up a portion of their life at the point of a gun is evil incarnate. It fundamentally breaches my right to not only privacy, but also to private property.

You call that VOLUNTARY? Where everyone gets assessed a fixed amount? You have to be joking.

And how do you propose they collect this individual tax bill? Wouldn't the prisons be overloaded with poor & middle class people who couldn't pay their bills, thus creating an even bigger tax burden? Ascinine idea!

NRST forces cheaters to pay, helps reduce the number of illegals crossing our boarders, and allows the John Kerrys and Enrons of the world to spend to their hearts desire without loopholing the government out of millions of dollars in taxes. Enough said.
