    I wish someone would have the balls to come out with a flat tax on all income.
    Most flat tax plans I have seen tax the consumer the most.
    I really don't see any canidate getting rid of today's IRS any time soon...

    You Ronulans say this every election cycle...yet he never finishes beyond 1% of the vote when it really matters.

    Thank God this is his last failed attempt to convert the masses. Hopefully we won't have to hear from you cultists four years downt he road.

    Yes, clearly anyone who isn't for open borders, more wars, bloated government, and a worthless dollar must be a part of some cult.

    I'm trying to figure out why the typical neocon doesn't like Obama. You should love him. He's toppling regimes at a rate Bush and Cheney never dreamed of, and I know how important dropping bombs on brown people in the desert is to you guys.

    Dividends have already been taxed once. Capital gains are the result of risk investment. The gains shouldn't be taxed, and the losses shouldn't be deductible.

    Ever poke away at a hornet's nest with a stick? In the ME, nobody can be sure what will replace the toppled regime.........maybe Iran, Hezbollah, or worse?

    As for Perry's plan, I don't care for continuing any deductions; not home mortgages, dependents, or any other. A flat tax should be just a fixed percentage against a gross wage income with a floor at which taxes begin.

    It could be implemented simply by replacing the current personal/sub-S tax tables, and dismissing most of the IRS personnel and consolidating some IRS offices. No constitutional amendment required. No national sales tax layered upon existing state and local sales taxes.

    I disagree. I see no reason why those whose income is made through risk should be exempt from taxes while those who make their money from labor carry the load.

    it's a political ploy by Perry, he's doing shitty in the polls and in debates and needs something to boost his numbers
