has in fact proposed a flat tax.

We have a record high number of felons, due most to our draconian drug laws. These laws are also enforced unequally. Poor minorities are more likely to have drug convictions, even though they are no more likely to use drugs than the white middle class.

The question is which foot he shoots himself in,
and whether he puts it in his mouth first.

Watch for McFadden to answer a lot of questions that he isn't asked, to avoid answering the questions that he can't.
