Make It a FairTax Fourth of July
Fireworks will color the night skies across America, replicating the “rocket’s red glare…”.
We will once again celebrate our struggle, sacrifice and determination to break away from a distant government, unfair taxes and the arbitrary and capricious rule of kings.
And in homes across the nation the FairTax will be seen and heard in our first national TV broadcast on Fox Business News at 1:30 p.m. eastern time.

It’s the Fourth of July…our American celebration of our hard-won victory for independence. It is also the definition of our campaign to win enactment of the FairTax.
“We, the people…” will remember, in between the ribs and watermelon, swimming and fireworks, that Americans brought forth a new idea in the history of the world…that the governed can determine the power of government--instead of the other way around.
We FairTaxers are working once again to shift power from a distant government to the American people. We are a growing citizen force to end unfair taxation all over again. We are in the vanguard of those who will bring about a better future and healthier nation against special interests, arrogant leaders and a corrupt and aristocratic political class.
This year, as our Gulf Coast neighbors struggle to save their beaches and estuaries, our countrymen struggle with floods across the mid-west, as upheaval politics redefines the power of incumbency and as we struggle as nation to recover, let’s reflect on our journey as a nation. It has not been a bed of roses.
In our darkest hour, General Washington’s soldiers marched in tattered uniforms and bare bleeding feet across the snow and ice to surprise the Hessian mercenaries and turn the tide of our Revolutionary War. That courage, toughness and plain dogged stubbornness is America through and through.
