Our natural, inalienable rights are now considered to be a dispensation from government. And freedom has never been so fragile, so close to slipping from our grasp as it is at this moment.…Continue

We all have to make tough choices in life. Choosing between the current income tax and the FairTax is not that tough.
How would you like to get your entire paycheck, for an immediate 10% raise, maybe more?
How would you like to never have to file another income tax form for the rest of your life?
How would you like to see a number for the cost of running the federal government on every cash register receipt?
How would you like to see trillions of dollars returned…Continue
An open letter to Congress:
Recently we have seen a series of books documenting the role of the lobbyist and the use of privileged information for personal stock trading profit. Against a background of a favorability rating in single digits, it all seems like “piling on”. The sad fact, however, is that you deserve every bit of it, probably more. You are presiding over a time of serious decline in this unique experiment in representational democracy, as well as in our…Continue

Many times, when I'm in a discussion about the FairTax, people say that they have more important - or more urgent - things to be concerned with.

FairTax Splinter Groups can be found just about everywhere; on the internet and in your local communities. Facebook is the primary culprit with ~50 different pages dedicated to the FairTax, dozens of people who have created FairTax related accounts that violate Facebook's Terms of Service, and a couple dozen FairTax Groups (not to be confused with pages). There are also many FairTax groups I've found on LinkedIn, Meetup, and various websites scattered around the internet.
It won't take much, really. There are currently fewer than 10,000 members on FairTax Nation (FTN); I'm estimating about 10% of them are active within any given month. If we all pool our own resources, each of us can do our own little part to help FTN grow.
For those of you who have little time but still want to contribute, an idea to help FTN grow would be to show up for 2 minutes once or twice per week and share your "My Page" either on Twitter or Facebook. If your friends see that…Continue
