Here a video with Peter Schiff outlining the multitude of reasons the income tax is wasteful, burdensome and just flat out economic folly. Oh yeah, the income tax also allows the government to get further into our personal lives and our earnings.
It is really very simple. The income tax is bad for everybody but politicians and big government. In this video, Mr. Schiff even busts the myths regarding consumption tax being unfair and other popular misconceptions.
