I don`t think the way the gov. gets the tax is as important as the way they use it.
It is both.
If the Government does not have to take care of everyone then they can do the basics for less total money in the budget.
If you need less then you can 'afford' to go to a basic flat/Fair Tax.
The problem with the Government is it is too big and inefficient, wasting large amounts of money.
The Government feels the desire to take care of our every need and just cannot see the logic in some projects.
MA has a free car program that the taxpayers are on the hook for!

And the bailout Of GM does not look like it will benefit US workers, so why did we spend OUR Billions on a public company?

The government is a separate entity or so they would have us to believe. They claim to do things in "OUR" best interest but it is simply not true. As I said before the prior government (though I can't see the difference) not BUSH only who are still in office caused this problem. Our now "ELECTED" representatives have increased that figure by 5 times and there's no excuse for that. There were promises made that all pork would be absolutely eliminated and it did not happen yet after 3 more bills signed. All of these people that supported this deficit knowingly need to be eliminated at the next election because as long as they remain in power we will never recover. Our children for generations will pay and probably a lot of them live in poverty. There is no tax the government has to offer that will get us out of this debt. What we need to do is limit "THE GOVERNMENTS" spending and cut their pay so it's no so "Wonderful" to live off of "WE THE PEOPLE" and make it a real job and hold their feet to the fire. Just to clarify a prior comment on a flat tax it would eliminate all other taxes and wouldn't add to already bloated taxes.

The trouble that I see with pork is that for a certain area they are looking at it as a necessary thing & the rest of the country sees waste. T he other problem is that its like welfare for the politicians, they have been using it for so long they think they can`t operate without it. Don`t have the answer but like most things its gonna take time to change it , if it ever does happen. I still don`t think we`ll ever see a flat tax mainly because the wealthy would be paying an extreme amount more which is why some of you say its unfair to close loopholes.

CapeCoaler,

If you think about it for a moment, it is quite funny how left leaning this State has become.

With Cape Cod as the birthplace of the Mayflower Compact...

IN THE NAME OF GOD, AMEN. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord King James, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, &c. Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and Advancement of the Christian Faith, and the Honour of our King and Country, a Voyage to plant the first Colony in the northern Parts of Virginia; Do by these Presents, solemnly and mutually, in the Presence of God and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil Body Politick, for our better Ordering and Preservation, and Furtherance of the Ends aforesaid: And by Virtue hereof do enact, constitute, and frame, such just and equal Laws, Ordinances, Acts, Constitutions, and Officers, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general Good of the Colony; unto which we promise all due Submission and Obedience. IN WITNESS whereof we have hereunto subscribed our names at Cape-Cod the eleventh of November, in the Reign of our Sovereign Lord King James, of England, France, and Ireland, the eighteenth, and of Scotland the fifty-fourth, Anno Domini; 1620.

and the Plymouth Colony...
1620
Plymouth Colony
One hundred Pilgrims arrive on the Mayflower on November 11 off Cape Cod. Realizing they are outside the jurisdiction of the London Company, which had issued them a charter to settle in America, the Pilgrims establish a colony at Plymouth and draw up the Mayflower Compact to govern the colony. Although aided by local Indians who share food with the new settlers, about half the Pilgrims die of disease and starvation the first winter.

There are quite a number of conservative types hiding out on the Cape!
