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. Left to right the names are: Ron Maiellaro, Nick Rudelic, Pam Reid, Pete Petzold, Elaine Maiellaro, Pete Adams, Barb Rudelic, Marco Bilante, Ray Budd, Donna Paget, Pat Gianinni, Rudy Treml and Jim Reid. 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

Relatively few people realize that for much of our history, the income tax did not exist. Our Nation was
founded, grew, and become a major world power, all without having any form of individual or corporate
income taxation. In fact, it wasn’t until the late 1800s, and the development of the Progressive-Marxist
movement, that a progressive income tax became established in academic thought. And it took until… Continue

EXPANDING THE TAX BASE AND INCREASING REVENUE UNDER THE FAIR TAX

While the Obama administration is running up it's flag pole and testing the waters on the VAT-Value Added Tax, the Senate votes on a non-binding amendment to send a message to the administration and the American people as a legislative body, it thinks the VAT-Value Added Tax is a bad idea and will only further hurt our economy.
The VAT Tax adds taxes on our current broken tax system and does nothing to correct it but lines the pockets of the government with more to spend. The word… 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

Sec. 202 of HR25 creates a Sales Tax Bureau in the Dept. of the Treasury. The purpose of the bureau is coordination of the state administration of the federal sales tax. As you know, the states have all of the expertise in administering sales taxes, so the FairTax takes advantage of this by having the states collected the federal sales tax along with their state sales taxes. The states can do it much more efficiently using existing systems.
The IRS is…

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

Making Big Business Pay Their Fair Share of Taxes
When you hear any politician indignantly demanding that corporations finally, “pay their fair share of taxes,” look to your own wallet. Corporations don’t have a secret cache of money to pay taxes nor do CEO’s take it from executive compensation. These taxes are always paid by workers, consumers and stockholders.
The recent shocking, shocking revelation that American businesses are sheltering their… 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.

I really believe that the fairTax will eliminate the unfair Tax Debt Burden that so many millions of people have at the present time. This last year many people have been hurt by the Real Estate equity devaluation.
Short sales and Foreclosures are creating 1099 - C "income" Tax issues for millions of people this year.

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
