None of those fantasies have become reality, and I suspect that the message of this Branco cartoon also is an unattainable fantasy.
Simply stated, a flat tax would be a wonderful outcome to this latest IRS scandal. But for reasons I’ve already explained, I’m not holding my breath waiting for that to happen, either now or in the future.
Doesn’t mean I’ll give up on the fight for tax reform, but I always try to be realistic.
P.P.S. There is such a thing as a libertarian-specific fantasy.
P.P.P.S. For fans of the national sales tax, I’d also be delighted to get something like the Fair Tax (as you can tell from my position in this debate), but I think a national sales tax faces even greater uphill odds than a flat tax.
