    A Grass Roots Effort Is Needed

    The FairTax is the best option proposed to date, in my opinion. Although it is not perfect ... then again what is perfect. Nothing. The FairTax is a long sight better than the current system.   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A Grass Roots Effort: Become a Citizen Co-Sponsor of the...

    I'm Confused About Something

    Those spending at twice the poverty level pay a FairTax of only 11.5 percent -- a rate much lower than the income and payroll tax burden they bear today. Meanwhile, the wealthy pay the 23 percent retail sales tax on their retail purchases.   Thats from the website. How...

    Think About It!

    Income taxes are an abomination and a terrible drain on this country and on free enterprise. Progressive can become regressive extremely quickly. They also become punitive quickly. Without the income tax government can not engineer society to conform to its Marxist utopian vision...

    If You Haven't Heard About This - Check It Out

    A really good friend of mine turned me on to this cause - thank you.  I'm a bleeding heart - I try not to be, but I can't help it sometimes.  I was always so afraid that changing the taxes would hurt the poorest of the poor and help the richer - but this...

    Alexander Hamilton On Taxation

    A 'Consumption Tax'.  One important advantage of a consumption tax is that it doesn't discourage investment. Also, it doesn't discourage working harder to earn more, as does a progressive income tax. Another important advantage is that there is no need what so ever for the...

    Social Security Will Start Paying Out More In Benefits Than It Collects In Taxes In 2016, a Year Sooner Than Projected

    Repeat after me - there is nothing in the SS trust fund except for IOUs for money the government has already spent. Capitalism pays the bills in this country. Always has. Now, we have a major problem today. We have a president and congress that are ANTI-CAPITALIST and leaning...

    Let's Remember

    ... and the Constitution doesn't matter any more!   The progressive income tax is punitive by nature and in its design. It is ineffective for any purpose other then income redistribution and the graduated tax acts as a catalyst for social engineering. Where one can let...

    This Is Why It's a Good Plan!

    I am completely for the consumption tax (aka fair tax) plan! And here’s why: 1.   I get more money in my pocket that I, MYSELF, earn. 2. I get to spend more money on necessities if I have more.  3.  The IRS accumulates millions in debt each year...

    Clever Tinkering to Fund Ever-growing Monstrous Government That Has Brought Us to the Brink of Total Collapse.

    We don't need any more tinkering with the current, communist inspired, class warfare inducing, progressive income tax code! The FairTax would allow the government to collect it's revenue without the need for knowing even so much as one's name!Something like what the founders...

    Desperately Needed Today ... Tax Reform

    The United States needs tax reform, radical tax reform. We have in the past been taxed at excessively high rates claimed by Congress to make it fair. Fair is not taking more from one individual than another. Fair is taking the same rate from a larger pocket. The Income Tax by it...
