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

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

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

We, the people of Michigan, are alarmed, and we have taken to the streets because of what we sense is the loss of proper respect and service by those we’ve sent to Lansing (and Washington) to represent US! However, unless our Michigan Tea Parties can channel energy into a vehicle of concrete action, the past century has shown us that we’re likely to continue to proceed down the path to less freedom, fewer liberties, less economic opportunity, more taxes, and larger… 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

I just wanted to remind everyone that we are holding a FairTax demonstration at the Rossville post office in Rossville, Georgia on this Wednesday, April 15, 2009.
If you are in the immediate area and can stop by at all, even if only your lunch break, we'd certainly value your help...especially since, thus far, my two eldest sons (ages 15 and 12) and I are the only participants.
But, guess what? We are going to do it anyway!
I also have a request in to a friend… 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

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

Opposition to the FairTax is bi-partisan in Washington. While most co-sponsors are Republican, those supporting the FairTax represent a minority of Republican Members. Eight years of majority rule by Republicans did not see the FairTax enacted. The majority party in Congress, Democrats, have been even less moved by the potential of the FairTax.
It's human, not ideological. The FairTax takes away from Congress power over the tax code. The ability to grant favors to supplicants-- paid… Continue
