I hate taxes and wasteful spending. If I lived in a more conservative spending state, I would consider paying a use tax if I bought from a website that didn't charge me tax.

National sales tax is actually a good idea.  Smart conservatives agree with this.

I think most countries that have a VAT either don't have an income tax or it is very low. (haven't done any research to verify)

VAT and sales tax are very regressive from a tax structure standpoint (which is probably why conservatives like them).  This should probably be in the "war on poverty" thread.  If they do try it, would be interesting to see what new lie the Obama machine creates to tell poor people it's not a tax on them (something they're very good at doing).

Not totally opposed to it, IF it's earmarked to reducing the deficit and for nothing else.  Pretty sure they'd need a Constitutional Amendment to enforce one, not sure it fits w/in the 16th Amendment, but could be wrong.
