Dear fellow FairTaxers,
Our founding fathers instinctively knew the evils of an income tax. They knew from history how such a system could easily be manipulated to pit one group against another.
More importantly, they knew how an income tax could infringe on individual freedom. Freedom was the most important element in our country's founding. So, they prohibited an income tax in our constitution.
But, after several attempts in the late 1800s by politicians who… Continue

While covering the RNC 2012 Convention in Tampa, FL, I met a great group of FairTax supporters and activists at an area Unity Rally.

Not in the photo but in attendance are Bob & Carol Mathews and Larry Walters.…

Have a standing petition list on the FairTax.org website where supporters can record their support. This is necessary so Americans for Fair Taxation can go to every Congressman and Senator in the country and actually show them the names of supporters in their districts and states.
It's too easy for our elected representatives to dismiss the Fair Tax Act saying that their "constituents don't support it." We have to be able to show the politicians that their constituents DO support the… Continue

Are you the rightful owner of the fruits of your labor?

The challenge of U.S. dollars being held in offshore bank accounts in an effort to avoid paying taxes on capital gains and interest has grown significantly in the past few years. Some estimates say that money is as much as $15 trillion (based on past data plus annual growth estimates) and is growing by an estimated $860 billion per year, resulting in billions of dollars in lost tax revenue every year. [… Continue

We have got to get Fair Tax supporters ACTIVELY pressuring candidates to go on record with what type of tax reform THEY support. It will not do us any good to fill the Congress with the 'other' party that wants to hold the power in DC. We need pro-active directors and coordinators paying attention to debate, townhall, meet and greet, and fundraising dinner schedules of these candidates and organizing a presence at these events wherein we can continue to press them on the issue of tax… Continue

Its been awhile since I've visited. Things have been hectic. Work my Family and Fair tax work have kept me busy. Wed night we'll have an informational meeting in Centralia Mo. I have talked to several people and have had alot of interest .I hope all who have expressed an interest will show up. In my neck of the woods I have yet to find anyone who, once they are told about the Fair Tax, is against it.
I am going to try to get some pics or maybe a little video and post it here. However I… Continue

FairTax group states its case
To the editor:
Regarding the article, "ESCC professor disputes political rally on campus," published Wednesday in the News, I wish to respond to Eastern Shore Community College Faculty Senate President Bill McCarter's negative comments about the pending… Continue

The Bumper Sticker at Blue Collar Republicans is "Jesus Loves You, and Allah wants you DEAD!" i would like all FairTaxers who want to capture the working class at the next rally to link into my Da Blues Group here. I think I have at least a cool Tee Shirt idea that brings together ALL Americans to shout out how upset we are with Income Taxation and those who do nothing to get rid of it all. If you are new to the FairTax and are in South Florida or would like to use "Da Blues" idea at FairTax… Continue

Note to reader: The Fair Tax will need a change in the constitution because amendments changed taxes to the income tax system. It must be changed to allow a consumption tax. A constitutional convention can be called by Congress or by 2/3 of the states legislatures. I believe it will be easier to convince the many heartland states rather than the congress. While I was working on this proposal Mr. Boortz spoke on his radio show about a discusssion he had with Congressman Linder regarding… Continue

One of the major problems with idealists is that they either get everything or they nothing. For example, an idealist might refuse to support a candidate or special interest group unless there is a component in their activity that supports cutting a Government budget by 90%. When he does not get everything that he wants, he ignores all political support of potentially useful ideas. The problem with this approach is that much needed idealists become impotent because their idealism never leads to… Continue

With having posted on the Obama website, change.gov, I just received an email with more ways to give ideas to him.
From the email:
We wanted to tell you about a new feature on Change.gov which lets you bring your ideas directly to the President.
It's called the Citizen's Briefing Book, and it's an online forum where you can share your ideas, and rate or offer comments on the ideas of others.
This link is from searching for Fair Tax on the… Continue
