The big question of the day-since the midterm elections has been- "will the Bush tax cuts be extended?" Why even ask this question? The real issue is that the entire tax code needs to be scrapped! In fact,instead of stressing over whether or not to extend the Bush era tax cuts, why not take a look at revolutionary reform of the current tax code,as well as ,abolishing the I.R.S. as we know ?!!
This nation was founded because the people grew sick of the tax burden imposed upon them by the King of England and the abuse of power that was used to collect the taxes imposed upon them by the King.
Today we find ourselves in a similar situation-hence the Tea Party movement-the King of England had turned a deaf ear to the concerns of the Colonists-much as our present government has ignored the will of the people-and he paid a dear price-much the same as those politicians who most recently chose to ignore the people-both of them lost power.
The history of this nation is one of a people wary of taxation. In fact Thomas Jefferson had this to say about taxes...
"To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his father has acquired too much, in order to spare to others who (or whose fathers) have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, "to guarantee to everyone a free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it."
Prior to the Tea Party movement another movement had already begun in America. A movement who's aim was to scrap the current tax code,abolish the I.R.S. and, totally reform the way taxes are collected in America!
That movement is the FairTax movement. We The People have spoken! now is the time for the newly minted representatives of the people to consider a whole new course for this nation! A course based on fairness. A course based on traditional American principles. A course based upon the idea that the people do not exist to support the government, but, that the government exists to serve the people!
The time has come to consider the FairTax!!
