Safe Mode: On
Libertarian Tax Plan. FairTax. IRS IS GONE!

The FairTax plan wasn't written by Libertarians but the Libertarian Party is the only party wanting to implement it. Over 150 congressmen and women (non-libertarins) have voted for it already.




The FairTax is a proposal to reform the federal tax code of the United States. It would replace all federal income taxes (including the alternative minimum tax, corporate income taxes, and capital gains taxes), payroll taxes (including Social Security and Medicare taxes)

  • He is 100% right. I have been advocating this for a long time, but people just don't get it. Most people claim to want a flat income tax not realizing how much better this would be in every way.

    Don't want to pay it? Buy used shit
    Want to soak the rich? This will do it.

    There is no escaping it, yet it's completely voluntary.

    It's perfect!

    It also tells the gov that you are not a slave that they own a % of your production.

      I bet if you debated Gary Johnson on domestic policy's he would make you look like a elementary school student. I also bet he's a better athlete than you and can smoke up under the table.

I don't smoke weed... that's a lie, I don't buy weed, if someone gives it to me I will smoke it before bed. What is the current domestic policy? As far as I see there isn't one so there would be nothing to debate.

  • A fair-er tax would be to divide the budget by 350+ million people and make everyone pay the same amount.

      Yet everyone gets the same protections and services. I'd be open to allowing the poorest people do community service rather than pay cash though.

      Yep. Unfortunately, the democrats see it as a percentage, which is ridiculous. The people who apply themselves and earn money pay for the low lives who waste their lives away contributing nothing, but are still the same burden on society, or likely more.

    • @BillyBullyBalls @aboy Yes... one percentage rate for everyone. You make 250k you pay 15%, you make 30k you pay 15%... no one fucking rides for free and the percentage is equal across the board. It's the only way to balance the books.

      So $1 million dollar salary means $150,000 in taxes and 30K salary means $4,500 in taxes. Is the millionaire receiving $145,500 more in services from the government? Why should he pay extra?

  • Libertarian tax plan is the abolishment of central government and whomever owns the land can tax you whatever he wants... If you follow Libertarian philosophy to its conclusion, we'd live under a feudal system and there would be constant war and poverty..

  • Gary is an idiot. Did anyone see his primary run? Nuff said.

    Too many Christofascist in the Libertarian movement for it to be about liberty. Mostly, it is just selfish, parasitic tax whiners living in fear of the IRS for good reason, because the don't pay their fair share.

  • how do we transition from one tax system to anopther without double taxing the existing money.

    Thus the reason noting is going to change anytime soon.

    • @TEX It would transition at the end of one financial year, with all subsequent taxable items taxed under the new system. it's been done many times before.

      what about the moneys in trust, holdings, which have already been taxed or are subject to taxation on the current system when withdrawn.

      I got this answer form a senior Tax collector.. who spoke way beyond my ability to understand how deep it goes.

    • @TEX Accounting for all taxable assets is done on a financial year basis. all gains before the cutoff date would be taxed under the old system, everything after under the new system.

      Problems would arise from people's declarations on taxable assets rather than from the tax system itself. if everyone where honest about their earnings and financial gains there would be no problems.

    • @trashie 

      Pretty sure they explained that but I will give you two short answers.

      1. Taxing consumption gives a citizen the change to save/keep money instead of automatically getting it taken away every week/bi-week/year.

      2. It cuts through all the bullshit in figuring out of much people owe. It's stops people from being able to skip out paying their taxes. Every tax measure is done in real time upon purchase; rather than a huge extremely confusing list at the end of each year.

    • Taxes are at or near historical lows for the past 100 years. Interest rates are under 4% for someone with good credit. If you boys can't cut it in this environment, you might just be economically unviable and a tax whiner who cheats and wants to make the IRS go away (Libertarian).

      Feelings and reality are two different things. Stupids are easily manipulated. The reality of what I said above stands. Highest taxes? You want to live in a Cadillac country? You gotta pay Cadillac taxes. You like your trillion dollar military, cruise missiles, aircraft carriers, nuclear submarines all over the globe and robust police state? It costs a fuckload of money. You want to keep electing parasitic conservative and liberal corporate whore morons into Congress? That costs a b More..

  • Where we get to a problem with the flat ax scheme is taxing people who are spending every last penny they have (the working poor) and it is still not enough to survive. There are many millions of people like this, but Taxdodgatarians don't give a fuck about these people, either out of malice, ignorance or sheer stupidity.

    I'm not saying he doesn't make legitimate points. But between performances like that and Rogan's well argued points that he'd be running up against massive status quo opposition, in the end I think Americans More..
