Spread the Word

I only have an AAS degeree, I know many of you have more college education than that but one of the things that was stressed in several courses was goal setting, I'm possitive that has been the case in many of your courses as well. Especially in business management classes. If the Fair Tax has set goals each year they have kept them a secret, I've been on their mailing list for years and I've never seen specific goals laid out. I have mentioned a more "organized" approach several time and sort of rebuffed saying this is a grassroots movement. What is to say grassroots can't organize into beautiful sod? There are a couple of states that seem to be organized on the state level and that is commendable. Can we make it 50 states in 2009?

Please respond and let's make this happen.

The US Postal Service is now making it easier for us grassroots types to get mail to everyone we want. The new service is called "Every Door Direct Mail®" and you can learn more about it on their website. https://www.usps.com/business/every-door-direct-mail.htm

Here is the link to the video: https://www.usps.com/ContentTemplates/assets/video/AT001796_FY12_ED...

If anyone is interested in using this service, I can help design a flyer for us to use.

Hi Everyone!

I would like to extend a personal invitation for everyone on the group to join us in TN, April 14 & 15 for the National Grassroots Town Hall. We want to kick the grassroots campain up a notch or two. Let's get this passed.

Purpose Of Government?  Effectiveness Of Government?  Alternatives?

I am reading It's Not What You Sell, It's What You Stand For by Roy M. Spence and Haley Rushing. Page 184 - 186 describes the 1974 Wright Act, the purpose of which was to make illegal any interstate flights from Love Field (by Southwest Airlines) since the backers of newly opened Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) airport feared it (and the many airlines that moved there) might fail if required to compete "fairly" with Southwest Air. 

27 years later, extending the purpose statement of Southwest Air ("Give people the freedom to fly." which most could not afford before Southwest Air), they launched a campaign (to citizens) called "Wright Is Wrong", saying "North Texas deserves affordable air travel, and a choice of airports.". 

American Airlines launched their counterattack:  "Keep DFW Strong.".  Their main argument was that giving more freedom (less regulation) to allow Southwest Airlines to carry interstate passengers would force airlines at DFW to lower fares. 

My point is this:  The purpose of government is often to protect or create profits in private businesses.  Politicians get bought (bribed?) with campaign contributions to themselves or their "superpac" alter - egos to hide the power flow. 

Freedom and simplicity are much better than license (to monopolize) and complexity.  Fair Taxation is better than complex "Revenue" laws to grant special status to accountants, lawyers, and financial planners to charge three figure hourly rates to get people out of paying taxes that others not paying such fees (and not learning and doing themselves) have to pay. 

Let's decommission much of government since its purpose is usually to line pockets (or build power) of cronies to politicians.  Especially the complex tax code, the main purpose of which is to force citizens to spend money on accountants, lawyers, and financial (tax) planners, plus empower politicians and lobbyists.

I have come to believe there is a very effective free - market alternative (for profit or non - profit) to most of the original purported "purposes" of the vast majority of government programs.  It is likely we could shed 95% of the costs government spends.  If we thus got to 10% of the presently needed tax revenue (5% for remaining programs, 5% to eventually eliminate the debt), there would soon be little power or incentive from the employers of lobbyists to pay to rig the system. 

Then the Fair Tax would clearly be preferred way to fund government (which would cost about half, per capita what states require now).  Not many times per capita what states take in now. 

Less should be done at the federal level, per capita, than at the state level, not more.  And federal "economies of scale" should make it even less costly per person.  Not more.

Can Government Solve All Ills?

Government more socialist than our present regime bankrupted the Soviet Union. 

Government less socialist than our present regime failed to solve poverty. Look at the whining that we need more socialism. 

Why not give up on government spending solving inequality or poverty? 

The prebate and private charities, plus free market "safety net" services (insurance, etc. are those in the market today) are all we can do reliably, without stabbing liberty in the heart or back, and without growing crookedness (directing "power" and money to cronies of politicians).

To Be Civic, Or To Be Enslaved

This morning I texted my son (who is very concerned about government overreach) this message: 

"Aaron, you might consider joining a civic organization.  They need youthful leadership.  Civic and faith based organizations are THE alternative(s) to a government "safety net.""

Politicians want your tax money (and your time accounting for taxes in the way their lobbyist benefactors desire).  Attracting youth into non - governmental service to society is the alternative to oppressive taxation and slavery to a government monopoly on "doing good".  What joy in life comes from delegating "goodness" to government?

It is increasingly important to understand democide as we (the US) reject constitutional limitations to government power.  See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democide

The first paragraph there (please do not miss the last sentence I have made bold) says: 

Democide is a term revived and redefined by the political scientist R. J. Rummel as "the murder of any person or people by a government, including genocide, politicide, and mass murder." Rummel created the term as an extended concept to include forms of government murder that are not covered by the term genocide, and it has become accepted among other scholars.[1][2][3] Rummel presents his definition without referencing any previous uses, but the term democide was defined and used in English more than 40 years earlier by Theodore Abel.[4] In the 20th century, democide surpassed war as the leading cause of non-natural death. [5]

Concentrating power in taxing authorities, or armies of regulators, then armies of armies (using that tax money to "protect society" - or protect government and its confiscation of wealth) is "very dangerous" to the health of society and the "endowed by creator" right to life of citizens. 

Know your democide.  Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it.

Limited Government

You know, this situation of me (and many people) needing to spend their time policing malignant (cancerous) government is a total waste of time. I have better things to do.  Do you?  Will your grandchildren have better things to do than monitor and control illegal / immoral actions by government? 

Maybe we should just write (or find) a constitution, and require government to stay within those boundaries (always, without continual citizen lobbying).  What a great idea. :-)

Tax Law Creation and Its Infliction By Bureaucracy (IRS)

Following a story about Federal Raids on Gibson Guitars, confiscating property for allegedly (no charges in months) violating Madagascar, then Indian law (both governments certifying the Gibson transactions as legal), I came to this "Principles for Revising the Criminal Code" by Edwin Meese at http://www.heritage.org/research/testimony/2011/12/principles-for-r....  I recommend reading it. 

Criminal laws (with imprisonment or confiscation of property without recourse) should not be created by "agencies" or bureaucrats not responsible to citizens. And behavior reasonable people do not know is "criminal" should not be criminal. 

The tax code and laws are similar. 

The Fair Tax is part of an wholesale redoing that is required for our nation if we hope to remain viable as a society, let alone hope to lead the "free" world.  We cannot lead freedom with bondage and rule of "men" (despots who claim "moral" - or legal - authority). 

Let's clean up all laws, not just the tax code.  Though the tax code is likely the best place to start.
