Doing What I can to Promote The FairTax.

Since I can't support our cause financially (SS doesn't allow for it), I can write letters to editors in my area.  Perhaps others with limited means like me could do more than they realize doing the…Continue

Fair Tax? What's that?!

     I am constantly amazed at the lack of exposure to or knowledge of The FairTax on the part of everyday folks I encounter as I come and go.  In the Doctor's offices, at the Hospital, barber shop, Church, Service Stations--almost everywhere I go, as I mention The FairTax I find an amazing number of folks out there who have no idea that such a taxing model exists!!!  And, the politicos who are running for public offices are for the most part also ignorant of the FairTax!  How can this be???!! …See More

Where Are the small business owners and CEOs?

One of the main features we trumpet when promoting the FairTax, is the fact that under the FairTax the Corporate income tax completely goes away, giving domestic corporations the best incentive to remain in America and expand, while enticing those who have fled to other shores to come back to the U.S.  So, why don't we hear the CEOs of all such companies all standing up for The FairTax???!!  They should be leading the charge in pushing Congress to adopt FairTax ASAP.  Why aren't the lobbyists…See More

Been Reading H.R. 25, Have Questions

Posted on November 15, 2010 at 1:00pm 6 Comments

In general, I have been a promoter of The Fair Tax for several years now. However. recently I have been trying to better inform myself about the provisions of H.R. 25 so that I might be better armed to defend The Fair Tax from those who raise objections to it. In studying the bill itself, I have discovered additional questions THAT I HAVE about it, which I must ask and have answered before I can continue my support for it.



As I read through…
