The Militant Libertarian

I'm pissed off and I'm a libertarian. What else you wanna know?

Letter To Editor

This was sent to the Salt Lake Tribune in response to an editorial about the proposed plan to change Utah's state income tax to a "flat tax" structure instead of the progressive tax it is right now. They never called, so I assume it won't be published. Pity.

In your editorial "Flat awful" in Sunday's edition, you talk about the proposed plan for a flat income tax in Utah. Your worry is that it is not "fair" to lower-income families and that taking from the rich and the poor at the same rate is "unfair."

Nowhere in your editorial did you discuss the fairest option of all: an option that even the most bleeding-heart of people cannot deny is fair to everyone. That option is to repeal the state income tax altogether.

Liberty: an idea whose time has come...again.
