I gotta say, you really seemed to have missed the point.

I would much prefer to sit on the couch, and play a shooter on the 60" against other people sitting on their couches, with the exact same hardware that I have. Even if it means I can't aim quite as good as I could with the keyboard and mouse. But not if the games on my pc look so much better.

No, you simply don't tax basic necessities. You don't tax utilities, food, and public transit. Things people need to function in modern society, and take part in democracy/government.

You sales tax everything else, and things with a social cost, like drugs and alcohol more.
(I would also argue luxuries at a higher rate, but that's the commie in me.)

Never appeal to a man's "better nature." He may not have one. Invoking his self-interest gives you more leverage. -- Lazarus Long
