"Fair Tax" vs. prostitution & illegal drug sales

Regarding the "Fair Tax", if enacted, would there be any other benefits of taxing the money earned by illegal activities such as prostitution and drug trafficking other than when that money gets spend on goods and services?

        There is nothing wrong with our current system of taxation, except for that fact that it is being misapplied through public ignorance. People need to pickup the Constitution and actually read it once in awhile; then they need to begin asking hard questions so that they may start to logically interpret exactly what it was that they have just read. The government should not be taxing the subsistence of the common laborer, except through the form of direct taxation, period.

        Taxes are to be laid ONLY for three main reasons. Taxation is not meant to operate in the form of a blanket, slung over the heads of the populous, blinding them from the reality of what is really going on. Remember, we are Republican Nation! Our current form of taxation was devised to replace mass dependency on tariff taxes.
