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, and Communists, like "Resident Obama" to destroy this Democratic Republic that we hold so dear. (Yes, I left out the "P" in his title on purpose as I believe it is more accurate)
Without further adieu, here is the letter...
I am not certain how many of my fellow Walker County residents are aware of a phenomenon called the FairTax.
I call it a phenomenon because it is more than just a piece of legislation that has been introduced to every session of Congress since the late 1990s. The FairTax is a comprehensive solution to our current economic crisis. It is also a growing grassroots movement that has the supportfrom many of our nation's top economists, talk radio hosts, a growing number of senators and congressmen, and more of the citizenry every year.
Specifically, the Fairtax would enable workers to keep their entire paychecks, enable retirees to keep their entire pensions, refund all citizens in advance the tax on purchases of basic necessities, allow American products to compete fairly with competition around the world to save jobs and even create them, bring transparency and accountability to tax policy, ensure Social Security and Medicare funding, close all loopholes and bring fairness to taxation, abolish the IRS, and transform April 15 into just another beautiful spring day.
I have written my senators and congressman repeatedly about this and wish to encourage everyone to do so. You can find comprehensive information about the FairTax Act of 2009 at FairTax.org. After all, isn't our nation supposed to be governed of, by, and for the people?
