Does Ron Paul seriously want "the abolition of the income tax and the Internal Revenue Service"?

That's not going to do anything to help our country. Abolishing the Income Tax and internal Revenue Service would destroy thousands of jobs-government jobs, H&R block, Jackson Hewitt, and many other smaller businesses that depend on doing other people's taxes for money to live!!

I think we should abolish the income tax and the IRS. We should have a universal sales tax in it's place. Obviously we have to pay somehow to support the federal government.

He's been yapping about that for years....he is the Dennis Kucinich of the Republican opportunist who does nothing in terms of taking a leadership role in real legislation and uses higher office as an egotistical platform, with no tangible results for constituents.

Services should be paid by those who use the services. The Government needs to be reduced in size. There are millions of acres owned by the Government that can be sold off to pay for operations. You will be a lot richer if your allowed to contol your own money.

USCIS (formerly the INS) is one federal organization that's funded entirely by its own filing fees, rather than by taxes. In other words, the people who use the services are the ones who support it. Despite the often astronomical fees, USCIS is a horrid, inefficient, byzantine bureaucracy that makes any other part of... More
