I have grown children (late 20's and early 30's) who support the fairtax. In order to control the fiscal irresponsibility in Congress, maybe the fairtax will become a reality once the "conservatives" take democrat seats in Nov. 2010! Otherwise there will be no hope for the federal deficit and the devaluing dollar in the years ahead.
Kira I'm glad to see more young adults become familiar with the FairTax. This is a non-partisan issue but many try to make it a republican ploy. The sooner the current Democratic leaders in control realize that constituents are voting based on Fair Tax support the sooner it will become a non-partisan issue. The reasons are logical and many. Those in control want things to stay the same, they have it made! No worries! They will try to distort the understanding of the FairTax as much as possible to avoid its passage.
I hope we can make a dent in the thinking of the American people. The fair tax is the only fair way for the government to get money. Everyone should contribute something to give value to the services they receive. Those that work harder should not be punished.
Great to see a young adult involved in Fair Tax Nation. I hope you can recruit dozens of your contemporaries to help.
I've been working for conservative, constitutional approaches to government and taxes since the '60's. I was even a NY Conservative Party officer in the '60s, when it was almost physically dangerous to be a conservative. But we had our victories, and at least slowed the leftward drift of the state and country. Now we're getting close to the point at which the country will be bankrupt in every sense of the word. (You California folk know what I'm talking about.) So it's more critical than ever that we change the tax system to make it fairer and less intrusive, and we need more people like you to help us get the job done. Welcome aboard. Jim Marks
Kira, I'm not so "up" on this type of communication, but we Fair Taxers need to be friends. I'm a senior, retired after 40+ years of office work and have more time for politics now. My native state is Arkansas. Yea! Huckabee! But my family came to Alabama many years before he was governor because of a job transfer. Special interest: I'm a dog lover. Yes, I would love to be friends.
