If you get rid of the income tax, what about the roads?
There is a big misconception that taxes from our paychecks go to pay for roads. They don't. The federal, state and local governments take a combined $180 million PER DAY on gas tax at the pump. Add in traffic citations, toll roads, license, and registration fees, and they are up to $250 million PER DAY. That money is supposed to be earmarked for roads. While these are still taxes, and I do consider them theft, it is designed to only charge those who use the roads. This system does need to be transitioned into a voluntary system, which will ultimately cost less by getting rid of misappropriated funds and no-bid contracts.
