This issue is going to get very messy. The big box stores and large non-internet retailers want to see a tax on online sales, and they have some power in the halls of government.
Add to this the states that are being pressured by the off-line guys. If there is a 5% (for instance) national tax, will it be collected on top of your state's 8% (for instance again) internet sales tax? Ouch!
The small guy's voice won't be but a whisper in the storm of BS that is going to get thrown. And its not a political party issue; the two parties are dumb and dumber. IMHO, the average person on the street will have no opinion about this mess.
