No taxation without representation 

President Jacques Chirac of France called Monday for a tax on airline fuel and tickets by the end of the year to fight epidemics including AIDS in Africa, saying the proposal could save three million lives a year.

The proposal could be a test of more far-reaching ideas backed by the French leader, including a tax on international financial transactions to support development.

France and Germany together are calling "for the creation by the end of the year, along with all countries that wish, for a first international solidarity tax" on jet fuel and airline tickets to fund the fight against AIDS and "the great pandemics that are decimating Africa," Chirac said.

Having taxed their own citizenry to the limit, Europe's statists are trying to expand the pool of potential taxpayers beyond their borders. Surely they appreciate that a country established on the slogan "no taxation without representation" will not agree to the imposition of any direct tax by an international body, governmental or otherwise. The only question is how many of America's own internationalist elites will endorse this absurd idea.

I'm sure to get flamed if I'm wrong on this, but I thought that the US was already giving substantially all of the cash used to treat AIDS in Africa.

IMHO, France and Germany, and the rest of their kind should pony up with their own citizen's cash, not seek for those monies to come from elsewhere.

I get the point though... JFKerry and his kind are sure to endorse this as just the kind of thing enlightened internationalists favor.
