Taxes Positions and Views
Taxes, a General Statement

The 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was never legally ratified. There is no law requiring Americans to pay a federal income tax on their labor. The federal income tax should be abolished and replaced with a national "fair tax" (progressive national sales tax).

About 48 percent of the federal income tax revenue is now budgeted for past and present military costs plus the military portion of the national debt. This accounts for $1,398 billion in Fiscal Year 2011, including $721 billion for the misnamed "Department of Defense," $155 billion for the military portions of other departments, $123 billion for veterans benefits, and $399 billion for interest on the military portion of the national debt. See www.warresisters.org for details.

I support war tax resistance. (See the National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee website at www.nwtrcc.org). As a candidate, I support cutting the military budget by at least 90 percent effective immediately, and restricting the military to non-offensive territorial defense of the United States.
