Is it time to replace Federal taxes with a National Lottery?

The Internal Revenue Service has come under heat for targeting specific non-profit organizations for bureaucratic harassment. Not long before this the IRS came out and boasted they were using their resources and power to read personal emails of taxpayers. My question: with what often seems the "lording it over the serfs" attitude of the IRS, would we be better off to get rid of federal taxes (thereby nullifying this branch of the federal government) and replace them with a National Lottery in order to generate revenue for the country?

    thegecko, I first heard of the idea years ago during a discussion my parents had, and since I've heard friends speculate on it. So yeah, some may have been waiting.

    So, what's your opinion on it?
