My two cents.
First of all, not only the united states of america have this tax problem, European nations have the same issue, as well as Russia, I guess even Africa. So this is still the fundamental issue we have to face.

I still think this would be a great idea, but you know you are getting fooled when hardliners are stating thinking loudly about that topic in a positiv way. History proofed this to often, to badly :-(.
