I enjoyed talking to you earlier today about how to implement our Boortz project now that the "Local Leaders" section of the website is expected to be down for quite some time.
As I mentioned to you Doug Dash, my wife Carol, & I were planning to personally contact (preferrably by telephone) local leaders in areas where The Neal Boortz Radio Program is not heard to see if we could generate interest in FairTax supporters contacting radio stations to see if… Continue

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… Continue

I have been on this and the fairtax site for over a year - and if memory serves me correctly, only one event at North Hills in Durham. Now I spent most of last summer in the hospital due to a motorcycle accident, HOWEVER, I cannot help but feel that we in the Raleigh/Durham area are FAILING misserably on getting the word out! I speak of the fair tax in my toast masters club (www.vimeo.com - search HITM) and I spend and enourmous amout of time and money getting the word out. If we had any… Continue

The RNC has a website dedicated to soliciting ideas from the public to "Rebuild the Party". Right now the top idea is "Enact the FairTax HR-25" with 5,138 votes. The number two idea has 4,712 votes. Incidently, the number five idea is another FairTax offering with 2,296 votes. When I first submitted my votes the FairTax was far behind, buried under a mountain of other ideas. The FairTax is certainly not limited to the RNC for support, but it's great to see it do this well on their website poll.

2008-01-25 E-mail to: Michael Medvid:
'Heard you on Friday talking to a 'tax expert.' I was disappointed that neither you nor he seem to be aware of the 'FairTax' principle that nearly all INCOME TAXES plus PAYROLL TAXES are paid by everybody who makes a RETAIL PURCHASE. The only POSSIBLE source of any INCOME TAX or PAYROLL TAX, is the EMBEDDED TAX (23% if figured inclusively, 29% if figured exclusively) necessarily included in the price of everything we buy.

The following is not a new idea, but I believe it would be a new idea for the Fair Tax grassroots movement, and once we put our twist on it and refine the efforts, I believe could very well be something that could set this movement ablaze across the entire United States in a very short period of time.
Here's the thought; Everyone involved in the presidential races over the past few years has seen the efforts of these candidates to put together "neighborhood" block parties for their… Continue

The Best Stimulus Package
The President and the new Congress seem to be seriously considering a stimulus package to “jump-start” the economy, which could approach $1,000,000,000,000 – that’s a TRILLION $s! Of course this is just returning our own tax dollars in the hope that we will go out and buy, buy, buy!
As usual our Washington politicians have completely overlooked the BEST plan that has been in committee for several years. It is HR25/S296, THE FAIR TAX ACT (FTA). With the… Continue

I believe this came from an old analysis of what challenges and rewards passing the FairTax would bring and it encouraged me.
"Success will mean the passage of the single most significant domestic policy act since the income tax itself was passed in 1913... The political legacy of taking on the federal income tax is hard to overstate. It is perhaps the most reviled law in the country, and to do battle with it in a bold, sweeping fashion will be a landmark event, showing extraordinary… 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

(from the blog: http://justthewriteword.blogspot.com)
The arguments being offered in support of President-elect Barack Obama's choice of Leon Panetta to be CIA director are laughably disingenuous at best and downright scary at worst.
Panetta is the former White House chief of staff under Bill Clinton, a former Congressman from California, and a certified policy wonk. Obama has decided that this aging remnant from a previous administration is the best… Continue

FairTax leaders, As you know The FairTax Act of 2009 was introduced to Congress again as HR 25. Our thanks to Congressman Linder’s office for that and we’re still waiting to see what the Senate bill will be. It was very encouraging to see a record number of original co-sponsors and others sign on even since then. Some emails have already gone out about the sunset language at the end of the new bill (Section 401) and we expect that portion to ease some… Continue

Stop Taxing American Labor
Why penalize employers for having workers? All the income and social security taxes an employee pays on wages comes from the employer. The employer must also pay his share of the worker’s Social Security. Then there are unemployment taxes and workman’s compensation taxes because he employs workers. At least two thirds of our nation’s income is derived from taxes on American Labor.
How does the employer come up with enough… Continue

With having posted on the Obama website, change.gov, I just received an email with more ways to give ideas to him.
From the email:
We wanted to tell you about a new feature on Change.gov which lets you bring your ideas directly to the President.
It's called the Citizen's Briefing Book, and it's an online forum where you can share your ideas, and rate or offer comments on the ideas of others.
This link is from searching for Fair Tax on the… 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
