"Where will the government get its funds to operate from without the IRS?"

Excise taxes and auctions. Tax alcohol, tobacco, recreational drugs, lottery winnings, and pornography, to start off. Sell all federal lands that are not needed for government infrastructure. Sell all infrastructure not within the bounds of limited government. Income taxes account for about half of federal revenue. If the changes outlined in this thread were to happen, then the budget would shrink by at least half.

I can easily go along with your ideas but most folks on FR couldn't.

You advocate sin taxes and I was beginning to think you had a libertarian streak.

Fund a limited, Constitutional govt the way the Founders intended via tariffs.

Stay away from "sin taxes".

The power to tax is the power to destroy.

If the powers that be don't like any particular activity all they need do is label it a sin and that activity will cease.

Regards

J.R.
