Concerning the flat tax proposition mentioned at CPAC: I believe it was a rhetorical question. He doesn't want any income tax, but proposed that as an offer to those who would be against others opting out. It's spending that is the problem and I think Dr. Paul's solution is to ween the Government off it's deep pockets and wasteful spending, analyze spending, and direct funds appropriately. Dr. Paul believes in free-markets, I'm sure he believes that the market should ultimately and respectfully assume these responsibilities, correcting these economic downfalls and inflation of prices that congress has willfully authorized to run amok.
