Question: I did some math. We believe that there is an embedded cost of 22% in the cost of everything that we buy. That means that by enacting the fair tax a $100 item would cost around $78. A Sales tax rate of 23% of that 78$ would leave the final price at $95.94. Thats a $4.06 drop in price even with the fair tax. Am I wrong?
This is an example used to explain the 23% tomato or 30% tomato. I did the math and here is the controversy. If you divide 77 dollars by 23 you get a round… Continue

I eed as much help as I can get.

This is an awesomeoppertunity and it will be our chance to generate interest for the fair tax on campus… Continue

As many of you know, I will be sharing the fair tax with a group of shelby citizens this satarday and I hope that It will be a start towards building a coilition in shelby, ohio. I will be making an appointment to meet with the shelby newspaper editor today and I hope that I will be able to convince her to at least allow a publishing of the fair tax point of view.
The Shelby memorial library staff has told me that the library offers conference room reservations at no cost and the… Continue

WOW! For those of you who were not able to attend the tea parties or watch the coverage of them (as minimal as it was) you missed something great. What I found that was the most interesting point made in the coverage of the tea parties was Shaun Hannity's interview with Joe the Plummer, Mike Huckabee and Neal Bortz. He asked "So do you think that what we're seeing tonight maybe is the spark, the proposition 13 that ignites the fire that Americans say, we're not going to take it anymore and… Continue

There has been a lot of noise made recently about sending tea bags to Washington to express our growing concerns about unfair and exorbitant taxes. While I think this is a great idea in theory it is not very practical. For one thing the tea bags will likely not get past the security measures at the Post Office, and for another you would be paying yet another tax in the form of postage to get it there.
Here is the next best thing to inundating our… Continue

Ronald Reagan once said "All great change in America begins at the dinner table." He was a man well known for his quick wit and humor that connected him to a broad audience. There isn't a single polititian in history that I agree with 100%. If I agreed with them 100% then they are not polititians, they are angles. Without getting into a long history about the Reagan presidency, we can all learn something from his emphasis on the individual. If you believed that government could handle your… Continue

Well, I was very excited two weeks ago, when I got my first FairTax letter to the editor published in my local county paper (Walker County Messenger) here in northwest Georgia, but...
I was doubly excited when I got my second FairTax letter to the editor published just five days later in the Chattanooga Times-Free Press, a paper with a much larger circulation!
I have finished reading The FairTax Book and am almost finished reading FairTax: The Truth, and I am determined to… Continue

First, I think that Congressman King presented himself well in his speech. Since the average attention span is about 15 minutes, after which the viewer zooms out temporarily it is important to capture and keep the attention of viewers. Steve King allotted time for Congressman John Linder and other Fair Tax co sponsors. Each segmant was short and gave a differing viewpoint. Good Job Congressman!
Second, the Fair Tax was presented in an appealing light to low income and middle class… Continue

OK, many of you have been waiting, as I have for my letter to the editor of our local paper to appear online.
Well, wouldn't ya know it...They printed it in the paper, but not online thus far. So, I have decided to post it here and get on with it.
My hope is that it will inspire others to do the same in their local publications. Hopefully the events of late has awakened the sleeping giant of the American people because we are not willing to let the Liberals, Socialists,… Continue

Thank you, Marilyn Rickert, for alerting Fair Tax supporters to this broadcast. Here is my letter to the McLaughlin Group sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I was puzzled by the comment of Clarence Page on December 27, 2008, during an airing of the McLaughlin Group, that he thinks the Fair Tax merits an award for the most stagnant idea. If Page's idea of a dynamic code is today's living breathing Leviathan, with over… Continue
