Utter tyranny.
OK, do you want to protect my property and not get paid?

Please list an inventory of your possessions so that a meaningful response can be offered to your question.

I don't want to be governed by a Mafia protection racket. It seems that's all the AEP amounts to.

Don't you understand anything? The police provide protection and get paid with tax money. The IRS still collects taxes, except the only taxes it collects will be from a single tax on property, all property, regardless of who owns it.

It all seems like a very thin justification for destroying a nation's economy in such a grand manner.

That's because it is. Don't forget that bob is the anti-baptist, false prophet for 'Satan' and the 'Beast', as evidenced by the numeralogical make-up of his name and if you look at his Ouso thingamy you will see that his aim is to give our world to 'Satan' and the 'Beast'. Hence his taxation scheme, which to work would have implemented at the point of sale where your property would be recorded against your number thereby keeping a track of what property you've got and you'd not be allowed to buy or sell anything without it being recorded against this number - sound familiar?

Destroying the economy? It's all other forms of taxation that will destroy the economy!

What makes you say that? You've suggested that all other taxes are tyrannical and improper. But you haven't argued that they are inefficient.
We've had the existing taxes for a long time and our economies have grown many times larger and more productive than they were.

The AEP tax system has never been used by any government, and nobody ever used a telephone until it was invented.

The AEP tax system was used by every government in medieval times. That was the last time when property was the basis of prosperity, so it was the last time such a system made any sense.

None of which addresses the AEP and Evensonomics.

Well, there is nothing to address with this 'AEP' as it doesn't exist but FDP has addressed your taxation idea and so far you appear to have not addressed his critique?
