Thanks to Neal Boortz for the link -- the Massachusetts Libertarian Party has turned in a petition with 75,000 signatures calling for the repeal of the state income tax. Neal opined that the state's legislature will be doing anything it can to scuttle the ballot, including having it declared unconstitutional ex-post-facto. I tend to agree with him.

Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee responded to calls for increasing state income taxes by creating a new charity -- the "Tax Me More Fund". Arkansasans who wish to pay more to their government may do so by contributing. Huckabee said that he will reduce spending rather than raising taxes. Not exactly a libertarian elimination of taxation, but still noteworthy.
