    While you have ordered on line and paid a sales tax based on the value of your purchase, I think that I can safely say that you are in the minority.

    Apparently, if you believe all of the hyperbole, there are a vast number of individuals who order merchandise on line from organizations who do not have a physical presence in their state and because the retailer does not have physical presence in their state, they are not paying a sales tax to their state government on these out of state purchases.
