Yes, and I should add -- because for space it didn't make into the profile -- that your NSRT proposal lets people buy things tax-free up to the standard of living for the poverty line. So it's not cruel to the poor.

Of course the National Retail Sales Tax is not "cruel" to the poor. Do you think for one minute that I'd support any program that was patently unfair or cruel to anyone?
I do not engage in class warfare, except to destroy the argument:
I firmly believe that the Marxist concept of "From each according to their ability, to each according to their need" and the resulting class warfare, greed and envy that it has inspired is directly responsible for more death and misery in the world and done more damage to all of civilization in the past 155 years than any other philosophical belief in the known history of man's existence on this planet.
Long sentence. Here is the short version: Communism kills!
The facts are simple: the NRST, by promoting robust economic growth in the world economy, will help the poor the most by providing more and better higher paying jobs and facilitating considerable upward mobility.
And the NRST will end the 155 year old class warfare argument.
