Quote du jour

When liberals advocate a value-added tax, conservatives should respond: Taxing consumption has merits, so we will consider it -- after the 16th Amendment is repealed.

A VAT will be rationalized as necessary to restore fiscal equilibrium. But without ending the income tax, a VAT would be just a gargantuan instrument for further subjugating Americans to government.

-George Will

  1. Will has it right on this one and I too would support the VAT only after repealing the 16th. Saw this quote over at Always on Watch a short while ago.

  2. Yeah. The idea that Congress would say "Trust me" on a promise that income tax would go away falls into the "Fool me twice" category.

  3. I should have done this sometime ago, but I've added you to more of my blogrolls:

    http://thegreatamericanrevolution.blogspot.com

    http://thetippingpoint-blog.blogspot.com

    http://totusblog.blogspot.com (not to be confused with TOTUS)

    http://politelypatrician.blogspot.com

    These are all basically mirror site of Obama Cartoons. Don't worry about linking back to these. I maintain these sites for my personal use and links to my other sites. They help in the overall picture. You have been a faithful reader of TOTUS and I hope the links will help, but these sites get little traffic and are only PR3 with google.

  4. You're more ambitious than I am! I do well to manage one blog with an occasional cross post to another!
