Dedicated Taxation

I would be okay with dedicated taxes.  For example...we already have gasoline and highway use taxes...those should be dedicated only to highways and transportation.  We have airport taxes and airline fuel taxes which should be dedicated only to airports, security, etc...We have payroll taxes which should be dedicated only to Social Security and Medicare.  If you want to have a war, impose a special war tax...if you want to have something else, impose a special tax for that...let people see up front what those taxes are for...and let them only be used for that...and let the spending on the intended item(s) and/or services not exceed the amount taxed.
