No sales tax is legitimate. We fought a war over no taxation without representation.
Sellers of goods deserve money for the product. Since government did nothing to create that product or make sure someone had money to buy it with, there was no representation — therefore, no tax is valid. If Idaho brick-and-mortar merchants feel disadvantaged, they should stop offering garbage we don’t want. If I can’t go down the street and buy what I want or need, then I’m going to get it where/however I can, if it exists.
To all levels of government: It’s not your money. It’s time for you to stop spending.
