Yeah, taxes. I'm going to make this short because I don't have a lot of time. Basically we pass the following Constitutional Amendment because I don't trust the government with taxes:

The IRS and all accompanying agencies shall be dissolved and a 12.5% federal sales tax shall take its place. This rate cannot be raised more than .5% in any twelve month period and can only be changed by a vote of 65% or greater in both Houses of Congress and must also be signed by the President.

A new flat income tax shall be imposed on all income made in the United States of America at a permanently fixed rate of 1% of gross personal income without exception or deduction. This flat income tax is not eligible for change under any circumstances.

This flat tax shall take place the calendar year following its passage and shall remain in effect unless and until changed by Constitutional amendment.

BTW, I'd also like to see something talking about earmarks but wouldn't want to turn this into the second coming of the 14th amendment. The bottom line is that federal spending should be limited to spending authorized by the tenth amendment. States can build bridges on non-interstate highways and build museums to Roy Orbison or whatever.
