Alternatives other than violating several "rights" we as citizens are supposed to have under the constitution, I'm all for taxation that isn't based on individual income basis requiring reporting, 1099's, etc. Personally I'd prefer to see us move back to what existed previously, or as similar as we could make it, probably closer to what would be considered excise taxes in today's world, or "tariffs" against business and corporate profit.
I believe he went by the nickname "dragon" but has disappeared. I'm skeptical of it being and "end all, now and forever" solution. Governments will figure out a way to find loopholes to the law the way some taxpayers have been known to do as well. What I'd really like to see is for some way to know more precisely what I pay in taxes of all types. What I pay directly is easy enough but what is paid indirectly by consumer type spending is something I don't know. I also consider the SS taxes employers pay to actually be more of a tax on the employee in that it's really withheld in lieu of being able to pay that sum to the workers.
