Government logic: "Dammit, that store is selling stuff without VAT / sales tax on it! We have to get sales tax out of them, we're losing out on billions in revenue!"

*Government implements stupid new laws, force store to charge sales tax / VAT.*
*store closes, several hundred / thousand jobs lost.*
*unemployed people apply for wellfare.*

Government: "There! Job well done, guys! What are we doing for lunch? hookers and blow?"

Creston logic: "Some companies avoid paying the taxes they are supposed! Good for them, now shall we increase taxes on those who do pay, reduce government services, or further increase in the spending deficit?"

I can understand small government arguments (I don't agree, but I can where they're coming from) - but loop-holes aren't the way to do that if that's what you're aiming for.
