Except that certain examples show that it really wasn't "fairer". What happened to looking at history? Why do you choose to ignore the examples which show otherwise?

How was it not more fair?
There were limited laws, and the laws in place did not take from some to give to others.
Taxes were there to fund the Govt, and pay for the Civil War. Not social justice.

Flat tax was never an integral part of the US. You say go back to it, like it was a long standing tradition.

So, it has to be something that had a life more then a year to state to go back to it. Seems you like to lay ground rules in order to further your argument.

It was instituted. It needs to go back to it.

Until it does it is still moving in the same direction.

As that is stated, there are states moving for a Constitutional Convention, States are looking to kick out the Fed Govt in regards to firearms and land, the tax revolt is gaining steam and people are standing up for themselves.
But, no movement right?

Also, people responding to certain types of government actions isn't always homologous. Just as many, if not more, people respond to increase certain government actions as those who oppose them.

I don't see people rallying behind the BLM and ATF like those that are pushing them away/out.

Looks like Kryties stole my words.

No point in going around in even more circles.

Believe that America was whatever you want to think it was and until the change that you want to happen actually happens, things remain the same, if they don't get worse.

That is what happens when you go back and forth between posts.

Adios then
