Libertarians are more numerous than many people would think. Their party is in disarray, but the actual platform should work for intelligent, hard-working individuals. It's all about personal responsibility and not relying on the government to do everything for you.
Socially liberal, and fiscally conservative. That's where I, as a human being, stand. Since the policies actually line up, and I can vote for someone I agree with instead of playing the 'Yeah, but that other person is worse' game.
If you say I'm throwing my vote away because Gary won't win, I don't care. I'm voting with my convictions, and if nothing else, I'm voting against a corrupt, broken, two-party system that ignores the vast majority of America.

Given the IRS spends about 14 billion dollars, the tax code is more than 78,000 pages long and since the 40s the federal gov't has been collecting about 17% of GDP even with large changes to the tax code, seems like a good idea to me.
It doesn't really matter as he will never get it through Congress. Wouldn't it be nice to have a president that is actually trying to balance the budget and reduce gov't spending, though???

His proposal is to abolish the IRS and eliminate all income and payroll taxes. He proposes a national sales tax, but does not say what it would be.
Estimates of such a tax are between 20% and 60%, based on how many items are actually taxed (e.g. maybe food is exempt from taxes).

I am sure Donnie would love to as well, that way he could hide his Russia connection. I am sure Johnson would try, but without a filibuster proof majority, it would never happen. The fact that it is a great idea on paper, does not mean it would be less of a disaster if it came to be.

Probably. There's nobody else crazy enough to go along with that.
