Sound analysis, but the keyword included with the suggestion of tariffs was "sensible". Of course that would be meaningless unless some limits were placed upon the maximum tariffs that could be levied on any single item, let's say.
Any tax plan needs careful consideration and much public debate. For certain, the boot of the federal government should be removed from the neck of average citizens. The states should ALWAYS be the conduit between the two, unless it is a matter of a state abusing rights of citizens as granted by the Constitution.

Well +1 to that and well said.
State-level subsidiarity in taxes would lead back to that thing which is the essential genius of The United States: competition in government.
Don't like the bloated government and high taxes of State A? Move to State B. Simple and ingenious.

(I once saw a movie where only the police and military had guns. It was called 'Schindler's List'.)
Tariffs cannot do the job alone, a NRST will probably be necessary too. Also vastly shrinking FedGov of course.
