If you haven't already done so, I'd highly recommend that you purchase the audio book, The Fair Tax by Rep. John Lender and Neal Boortz. I knew little or nothing about the fair tax except what I'd read on the web. After having listened to the audio book, I very much understand that this is the most earth shaking bill that has ever been placed before the Congress of the United States. I believe that every person that desires to know more about The Fair Tax read or listen to this book. It's really great. It also contains great ammunition to use against detractors.
