Fellow FairTax Nation Patriots… I am one of you and I found something amazing that I need to share. It may be for all or it may only be for just some. So come along and have some fun.
I joined FairTax Nation in January 2009. I have to think I was one of the first 1,000 members… perhaps even one of the first 100 members.
I sat and with you (in spirit) the year prior and watched the 2008 presidential primaries… how our mainstream media picked our presidential candidates for… Continue

Dear Representative Rohrabacher and Senators Feinstein and Boxer,
I received a notification by Mark Levin that Cap and Trade is front-and-center in congress right now.
I am writing to urge you to vote NO on the so-called cap and trade.
Cap and trade will be a huge burden to our economy in a time when our economy is very fragile and, according to many experts, it will NOT have a significant impact on naturally… Continue

Dear Assemblyman Logue.
I just read the article in the Wall Street Journal “Schwarzenegger Gets Radical – Terminating the California Income Tax” that identifies you as the head of a task force on taxes in our great state. Thank you for heading this up!
According to the article, the situation calls for massive tax reform with bold proposals to be considered.
A state version of the FairTax would solve our… Continue

It seems that every move that you, our representative government, are making is adverse to our nation’s common interests. If I were a conspiracy theorist, I might think that our enemies and the global elite have tremendous influence in our own government and in mainstream media with the goal of taking away our individual rights to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness…
1. You don’t allow healthy free-market competition to take place. Instead, you set up… Continue

I understand that Hugh Hewitt opposes the FairTax and has gone as far as to co-author a book against it. I heard Hugh who appeared as a guest on Dennis Prager's talk show today and I have to say I have lost all respect for the man.
Some Hugh's spin against the FairTax comes right out of the power-and-wealth hungry incumbent playbook. But there is a deeper meaning for Hugh... his slobbering love affair with Mitt Romney. You see, to give the FairTax credibility means giving… Continue

Dear President Obama, Senators Feinstein and Boxer, Representative Rohrabacher, Senate Leaders Reid and McConnell, and House Leaders Pelosi and Boehner,
I attended the South Bay Tax Day Tea Party at Dockweiler State Beach in El Segundo California where I found 1200-1500 other patriots who agree enough is enough. It was encouraging to be out there with like-minded patriots.
We had speakers who spoke of the reckless spending and the massive debt that our country is incurring… Continue

We the People of the United States of America are deeply troubled with the current direction of our great nation. At the core of our grievances is “taxation without representation” similar to that which our original American Patriots stood against at our nation’s founding.
Our elected officials have, over many decades, moved away from serving “Common Interests” of the people and of the nation to serving the “Special Interests” of Big Money Campaign Donors.
Killing off… Continue

Watching Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace & keyed into a discussion about race.
The conversation moved to hyper-segregation of schools with little being done to remedy the situation.
Consider this. The paths to upward mobility have diminished significantly in the last several decades as globalization has taken hold. Why? We chased a many low-skill jobs away from our lands.
Our nation has taken the path to upward mobility away from the least fortunate among… Continue

I am on a Yahoo Group for Calfornia FairTax leadership. One message that came across today was a reply by the AARP to a FairTax supporter indicating why the AARP could not endorse the FairTax. June's web address is firstname.lastname@example.org if anyone else would like to follow up with her.
Your letter to Jerry Lehrer made it across my desk as well. Let me assure you that Seniors are much better off under the FairTax than with our current system.… Continue

Dear Glenn Beck, Thank you for all that you are doing to wake up America. I sincerely appreciate what you are doing with the “We Surround Them” cause. Please find my picture attached. Note that I am proudly wearing my FairTax cap in my picture. I am asking all of my FairTax friends to consider your cause as well. If you are truly interested in helping make our country great again, you need to take a serious look at the FairTax. I keep hearing that… Continue

I keep hearing that housing got us into this mess. This is simply not true. Housing is a big part of the problem but loss of our industrial/manufacturing base is the real core of our economic woes.
Think about it. Why did the government create the housing bubble? Because we can’t import houses from Asia and drop them onto lots here in the U.S. We cannot say the same for manufacturing which has, in fact, moved largely away from our lands. Why? Because we have an unfriendly business… Continue

What does the American Dream mean to you? Perhaps each of us has our own definition but at its core it probably includes to live a peaceful and prosperous life. But where does home ownership fit in? Isn’t that part of the dream? Well, if you ask many at this particular snapshot in time, home ownership is definitely a dream… a nightmare.
Why did our government put so much emphasis on home ownership as part of the American Dream? One key reason is that it needed to create more demand… Continue

I follow the stocks... too closely... and, it isn't pretty. Many of the companies that are tanking the market are mega-orgs - some of which are too big to fail. At least that's what we are told.
How does a company get "to big to fail"? Well, by getting special treatment. That's how. And it isn't just special treatment from the latest… Continue

On my way to pick up my son from preschool, I heard a segment on the Michael Medved show where the caller was really tweeked that he got paid $8/hour for caring for the elderly while the auto workers were making $75/hr (probably inclusive of union dues - I just don't know).
He indicated that one way out of the economic problem is to raise the pay at the lower rungs which would put more money in the pockets of the less fortunate to help… Continue

Fax I sent 1/6/2008...
Dear President-Elect Obama, Representative Rohrabacher, Senators Reid and Mcconnell, Speaker Pelosi, and House Minority Leader Boehner,
An $800 billion bail-out is not the answer to our economic woes. Growing government is not the answer.
The solution is to put full faith and support behind the good, innovative, and hard-working people of this great nation. When we have freedom from the excess… Continue
