believe that the IRS should be dismantled entirely? Why? Why not?

Imagine the savings just in bureaucracy. In New Zealand if you have only salary incomes, and your employers declared they paid you that income, you don't need to even fill in a tax return.
Imagine the people out of a job, being forced to do something actually productive in their life! What could the thousands and thousands of tax lawyers and IRS employees accomplish if they were producing something? Another trip to the moon? Another Hoover Dam or a second interstate highway system?
A National Sales Tax - everybody who buys something pays the tax. Boom - You're done. Next?
