The United States has an all-voluntary military, so why not an all-voluntary taxing system?

I think we should have a 10% tax, every citizen should be taxed- on welfare or not.

Replacing income and property taxes with a slightly higher sales tax would help. Folks that have more money spend more money, save more money, and make larger purchases. Sales tax effects everyone.

A national lottery is a great idea though to fund special government projects like research, space discovery, military weapons, and to provide disaster relief.

I think we would do best to remove property and income taxes which are both discriminatory. Property tax is discriminatory in the sense that property owners foot the burden of schools, county roads, and other local services, even though, the majority of citizens don't own property and still use those services. Income tax is discriminatory in several ways: amount of income, individual taxpayers vs families, paying for services of the disabled or unemployed, and government seizure of funds.

The whole system is backwards those who pay receive fewer services and those who receive more services do not pay.
