The recent IRS scandal is proof that the IRS and the federal income tax must be abolished. The IRS is just too powerful a tool of oppression to be allowed to exist. The FairTax should be enacted, the IRS and the federal income tax should be abolished permanently, and the 16th Amendment should be repealed. There is NO other solution to this problem. The IRS and the income tax have not merely been abused - like speed cameras, they are DESIGNED for abuse.

Well John, 

I understand how the pro Fairtaxers love to debate only within the context of their soundbytes, instead of discussing the broader issues of the tax/money system, but calling someone "goofy" only based on 8th grade peer pressure tactics without specifics doesn't make for a compelling case!   In fact, that "goofy" nut you refer to, regardless of how consistent he is within his own dialog, is part of a growing network of folks asking some fundemental questions that are backed by good research!  Question 1: Is the findings of the Grace Commission report true?   And if so, then where is all our tax money going and how is government actually funded?   Question 2:  Is the Federal Reserve a private enterprise setup to control the American money system, given a charter to operate through fraud, and unaccoutable to Congress--considering the fact they have never been audited in 100 years!  Question 3:  who owns this private banking group that are linked to both the 16th Amendment and the Income Tax system?  Question 4:  Is simply replacing part of this system for a restructured version, keeping things "revenue neutral", but not addressing the foundational control aspects of the private bankers, actually creating change?  


I dont think these are nutty questions!

BTW, Simonbunkle, that no tax site that you linked to sounds a lot like it's based on the goofy ideas that used to be spouted by that loony RINO from south of Houston… you know, the one who was a perineal also-ran for the presidency… Ron something or other, I believe it was. He was a very personable, but eminently forgettable chap, who had no comprehension of finance. I think he used to say a lot of the same goofy stuff that's on that site. But naturally, nobody of consequence listened.

I remember asking him once, at a Libertarian Convention in Houston, if he would co-sponsor the FairTax and his answer was a perfect example of his screwy logic. He said that if the FairTax came to a floor vote, he would vote for it, but he would not co-sponsor it. Go figure. I'm sure that there are people sleeping under bridges in Houston that have a better grip on reality than he did.

But now that I think of that goofy old guy I have to wonder, now that he's no longer in politics, who will the GOP get to be comic relief in future presidential debates?

Simonbunkle, yes. When revenue is collected based on income, the ease of creating loopholes in that collection becomes a breeding-ground for lobbyists.

The FairTax removes the ability for Congress to play favorites with the tax code and along with that removal, it makes tax lobbyists, who comprise about 80% of all lobbyists in DC, obsolete. There will still be environmental, pharmaceutical, union and insurance lobbyists and such. But 80% of the DC power brokers who seek to overpower the voice of individual voters will be rendered impotent with passage of the FairTax. 80% of DC lobbyists will be put out of work.

That's why we're having so much trouble getting the FairTax out of committee. The tax lobbyists, regardless of which side they are on, are seriously afraid for their jobs and are therefore pressuring W&M Committee members to block the FairTax. It has nothing to do with taxes or what those paying them may want. It's all about their jobs.

So, will the FairTax change business as usual in DC? Absolutely! That's one of the key features of the FairTax.

Will a new method of revenue collection to maintain "neutrality" actually change business as usual in DC? What about the US constitution's answer?
Comment by Simonbunkle on April 17, 2013 at 7:30pm
Has anyone read the Grace Commision report under Reagan? It's findings say that less than 5 % of income taxes collected go to fund any services expected of the Fed! If this is true, then how does our Fed fund itself and where does all the taxes collected go? Perhaps to a private offshore banking cartel, who fund many governments on a system of credit? The same banking cartel who own and control the Federal Reserve? Wouldn't the best solution to the US money/debt problems lie in the entire infrastructure of fraud, not just the tax siphon scheme? http://truthintaxation.us/?tax_inform=whereTaxesGo

Christian, your concept sounds interesting. But that's all it is. I don't see a bill in Congress that would come close to what you suggest; especially not one with 68 sponsors and co-sponsors. The best that the Flat Income Tax has been able to achieve has been 5 sponsors and co-sponsors. The FairTax is by far our best bet.

I see a lot of governors talking about dropping state income taxes. I lived in Texas for 20 years, and am now in S.C..I hate seeing the state income tax every 2 weeks! Our state is trying to get a "Fair Tax" through, and our governor supports it, but I haven't seen her (Haley) out there nationally talking about it. does anyone know where we stand with this legislation? I know it is being introduced, trouble finding info, though!
