Ahhhh, destroy the messenger, ignore the message. Who knew? Turns out that the only real problem we face as a nation is a missing hyphen.

Puke: Perhaps you should learn how to spell some of the epithets you attempt to hurl.

The constitution has what is known as enumerated powers. It is sort of a paint by number system for pseudointellectuals like svensota who flippantly discount the fact that the federal government, by design, was never granted the power to do many of the things they are currently doing. And, I might add, coincidentally failing at.

Our silly slave owner founders knew that a violation of these powers would result in a federal government that was overreaching, overspending and overbearing. Their crystal ball could not have been more spot on.

Zowie!!

That Corie Langbehn guy really got me thinking. I mean, like, what if the states started to do a whole bunch more stuff instead of the dang Federal government? You know, like raise their own armies and build their own highways and make up all kinds of rules about abortion and stuff.

(Slap forehead.)

I mean, like, man, wow.

Just tar and feather that pro-fess-or, Corie.

You da' man!

I was assuming that you did not intend that the various states would be using the federal tax code. If that was your intention, then you would end up with the same complex code we have right now, only without the economies of scale that we have under one federal system.

The U.S. Constitution requires that federal tax law be applied in the same manner to all taxpayers, regardless of their state of residence. For that reason, states could not be used to route taxes to the federal gov't unless the same rules were applied in the same way in every state. It doesn't appear that this is what you have in mind.
