Internet Sales Should Pay State Tax!

No matter how much somebody hates taxes it is not fair for a business to go out of state (or out of nation) and ship their products back into that state (using its roads, rail, mail and airports and police for security) but not help in paying the taxes that everyone in the state pays to maintain those things.

They are ripping us off by using our stuff and not paying their fair share.

If they want to start delivering by helicopter and not impact our roads etc. then fine. Let's see them try to price that in!

And you ask, won't they pass that on to us? NO is the answer. In Free Market Capitalism some companies will accept the tax and not pass it on in order to gain a higher market share and equal or more profits as their competitors raise prices. This is what separates the good from the bad, the better company from the worse. In the end gain enough market share to lower their overhead and pass on savings and if we still have a WELL REGULATED FMC system in place we will make sure that even that 'winner' still must leave the door open for competition. No Monopolies Allowed in true Free Market Capitalism. That's what makes it a good thing, like evolution. Survival of the fittest, but the contest never ends.
