    There's still substantial vocal TP support for his views, so one can't be absolutely sure what the electorate will do. Consider this idiot in this morning's paper.

    Sen. Ted Cruz says the best and only solution to the monster called the federal income tax is to abolish it.

    Some would ask, “What would replace the tax?” This is like the patient after surgery whose doctor tells him that the surgery was successful because all the cancer was removed. But, says the patient, “What are you going to replace it with?”

    The federal government could produce a surplus every year if the politicians would abide by their oath of office to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution. Each state could decide what functions to replace, and these functions would be handled more efficiently and honestly.

    Karl Marx in his Communist Manifesto listed 10 measures which would cause “despotic inroads on the rights of property.” No. 2 is “A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.”

    Our income tax is an un-American, socialistic tax and should be abolished.

      And often give me dyspepsia. But we see these pov s expressed only too frequently there.

      I gotta believe the electorate is just getting fed up with this crap.  Can't tell for sure at what speed they are, though.
