Fair Tax Nation

Replace All Federal Taxes on Income with the Fair Tax Act , HR 25

This is not a conservative or Republican movement

The biggest mistake this movement is making is aligning itself with one party. For the most part I'm not a conservative and I sure as hell am not a Republican. I am an American with a brain.

I look at issues point by point not by blanket ideologies or belief systems. Because of this I don't get offended by the conservative or Republican raving that goes on when it comes to this topic. But I know a lot of people that I have sent to sites on FAIRTAX have been totally turned off by some of the conservative bantering.

I'm not saying dont be true to who you are but let's be focused if our goal is to get national attention and change our tax laws then lets focus on the on FARTAX sites. I don't want to be invited to an anti-abortion rally just because I did I was smart enough to add up the numbers and see that the FAIRTAX plan is probably the answer to our countries financial problems.

Blind following of party lines and defending party politics and policy is what allowed our country to get itself into this predicament. Please don't let it be the reason we cant get out of this predicament. So If we are talkign about FAIRTAX lets keep it on fair tax

While it is true that Pelosi turned the FairTax into a partisan issue in the House, that doesn't necessarily mean that it can't be supported by liberals and by rank and file Democrats. There is nothing about the FairTax that places it anywhere on the liberal/conservative continuum (or the collectivist/individualist continuum for that matter).

It does, however, take away the power of politicians and lobbyists to use tax laws to reward or punish behavior. Both parties are guilty of doing this and it will be difficult to wrest away that perk.

We need to emphasize the FAIR part of the FairTax and stay away from partisan issues and arguments. Imagine any politician running for election sporting a "Save the IRS" button or posting a white paper on his campaign website titled "In Defense of Our Current Tax System."

There's a reason for that.

Let's take our message and our unity to the media .... every call in radio show every call in tv show that talks about the economy or bailout WE HAVE TO CALL IN! We are currently being overlooked as a solution for our current financial situation. We have got to be loud and effective

Amen, brothers and sisters

I agree with you 100% Ken. 60-80% of Americans are not "Democrat" or "Republican." Rather, we land somewhere in the middle, with leanings toward one or the other - and they are not mutually exclusive. One may be fiscally conservative, but socially liberal leaning... I love how AFFT have made concious effort to keep it non-partisan!

After FairTax is passed, my next cause is the two party system. It's not good for America

Ken,

I agree with you one hundred percent! This is not a political issues forum. The primary effort here needs to be the focusing and encouraging Americans to direct attentions on causing our government leaders to understand the need of a reformed tax system that will be fair, reward and not punish, hard work and financial responsibility.

This is a "Savior Of The American Economy" (Dave Sibole) issue.

Hello Ken,

This is why we do not want to get involved in other issues on this site.

Folks from both the left and the right are welcome here as long as each person intends to promote the FairTax while leaving the other issues elsewhere.

That is why I started a group "Democrats for the Fair Tax" I am not a Democrat but I see the need for communicating the message to them that this is not a party issue. I used to call it a bi-partisan issue but from an aticle Ken Hoagland wrote I realized it needed to be called a non-partisan issue. It is the savior of the American economy.

I couldn't agree more, Ken! I lean Libertarian myself, but I think it's a real mistake to focus on party lines with this issue. I keep trying to reach my more liberal friends, but it's hard because so many people perceive the FairTax as purely a right-wing movement. Big mistake on our part not to communicate how the FairTax benefits EVERYBODY, most of all the poor. If we're going to succeed, we absolutely must do a better job of explaining the benefits for the poor and senior citizens.
