Would you change political party if the opposition party were to introduce a

1% tax on all commercial transactions with no deductions and no income tax? This consumption tax would be applicable to all transactions with no exceptions. Corporations, business, non-profits, individuals, government, etc. would all pay the same amount. This would be real "fairness" - no exemptions. Are you ready to establish this through a citizen congress pressing each state to adopt a Constitutional Amendment?
