We can can have more agents conduct regular energy audits on our homes

Personal carbon credits

How about a national Id and get rid of cash

Nationwide broadband internet and all electronic money...

Gee this Progressive new world is gonna be utopia
Relax.

You pay a use tax every time you fill up your tank.

We do ration energy. It's called a utility bill. (It's probably taxed, as well, just like other items you buy.)

We do have electronic money. Every time you use a credit card, it's electronic money. Every Direct Deposit is electronic money.

We have a de facto national ID. It's called your Social Security #, which is now used everywhere to check your credit report and track you.

It should be raised sky high right

We do ration energy. It's called a utility bill. (It's probably taxed, as well, just like other items you buy.)

But it should be taxed and regulated more right

We do have electronic money. Every time you use a credit card, it's electronic money. Every Direct Deposit is electronic money.

But not everyone uses that so we need national broadband. Get rid of any kind of hard fiat $$$. It will be much easier to collect the taxes when the IRS is hooked right up to the bank that owns the IRS

Let's see they could probably say it would prevent crime. The underground economy can't really function without cash... Tax revenue would go up

We have a de facto national ID. It's called your Social Security #, which is now used everywhere to check your credit report and track you.
Without cash you would need a much "improved" system

But all that is getting away from all of the absurd taxes that are being proposed to support this "healthcare reform" scam...
