The sales tax here in Florida has been better described as a "transaction tax".  If there is a  movement of property from one hand to the other, the State wants money.  The best thing that was done here was to exempt food and medicine.

When a politician looks at a tax like this they will think that is great but as an ADDITIONAL tax.

 They will add pork to this, so heres mine"No politician will serve more than 8 yrs" if you want to serve more time it should be as an appointed posision with no pay. I see a lot of old equipment being rebuilt and put back in service.

Bureaucracy is designed to protect itself against change. ;D
The Country, States and Municipalities spend so much on administration of itself it boggles any logical thinking.  We clearly are spending to much. The IRS is collecting over 2 trillion dollars for 2006. :D  Nevermind the State and local taxes. ::)
Your point about term limits is also what needs to happen. Think of all the career politicians who have gotten us into this yet continue to hold office. There once was a time when the Country had to send representatives to Washington.(Communications)
Don't think we need them anymore. We got da internet thanks to sum smart fellow.

I've read Neal Boortz's Fair Tax book. I'm behind it 100%. You only pay tax when you buy at retail on new stuff. It's fair for everybody. You eliminate the IRS. You might cut back on state income taxes too, as most states base their taxes on your federal reportings. As for some transactions going unreported, and thus untaxed, you will have some cheating going on in any system. You'll probably have less than with our current system.
