When we see something needs fix’n, we get at fix’n it right now. We know the job will only be worse and cost more, if we ignore it. Grab your tool belt and join the rest of us to get the job done.
Some have been trying to shore up the patched income tax. DC wants to show you that it is working for you. Every patch is a Band-Aid applied to help us peons survive. Throw $1,000 at their next campaign and see how much more you are noticed. We can’t get the job done unless more people can see the way we are being treated by the people who are supposed to be working to represent us and our district.
Put on your hard hat. We are about to make our wishes known. Our game is exposure both good and bad. It’s time to tell your truth through transparency. Our truth is freedom. If you don’t speak up, they will say, sorry you should have said something. My response is, “Well, you never asked, Sir/Madam.” They will never ask, so they can play dumb. Maybe they are not so dumb. I think the term is “plausible deniability”.
Trick: When their answer is in political speak, simply ask them to paraphrase it. Keep asking them to paraphrase their first paraphrase and so forth until you are sure that each person in the room who’s old enough to vote understands it. Don’t accept anything less. They owe all of us that. If they tell you they aren’t that familiar with HR25/S18, offer to sit down with them, so you can help them review the salient parts of the bill.

FIX IT RIGHT (or forget it)
I have been an appliance repairman for 44 years. My natural inclination is to fix things. As I look at the state of national affairs today, nothing seems to be working right. One hardly knows what to tackle first. Each of us must assign our own priorities. Mine is tax reform; not just any tax reform, but the FAIRtax to be specific.
For 105 years as the law of the land, the income tax has reached the point we were always warned about when we were kids. We have played with it so long we have broken it. The income tax discourages investment and productivity. It penalizes exporters who must add the cost of taxes into the price of everything they export while imports from other countries carry no such penalty. People with high incomes are leaving the United States in droves to avoid income taxes. It is so common that they even have a nickname – taxpatriots. Working people have up to 25% of their income confiscated before they even get their paychecks. That discourages consumption, making demand for goods and services anemic. A huge bureaucracy known as the IRS intrudes into the private affairs of all of us. As taxpayers we waste hundreds of billions of dollars and millions of hours every year, just to comply with the income tax.
With all that, we still can’t be sure we have followed the correct procedure because of the complexity of the codes, rules and regulations. People who are not entitled defraud the system for undeserved refunds. Hundreds of billions in the underground economy are left on the table, taxes on which are not collected under the current system. Congress parcels out tax breaks to special interests in deals which never really quite pass the smell test. The list of evils goes on and on. The embarrassing part is we tolerate it all without thinking. The dangerous part is that it is destroying what’s left of a once vibrant economy.
The FAIRtax changes everything. Because it is a tax on consumption, it sidesteps that entire list of evils associated with the income tax. The threat that the income tax poses to our economy going forward is so grave that even Congress is beginning to see the obvious. Last year’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act gives us a glimpse of the advantages of putting more discretionary money in the hands of consumers.
The FAIRtax however goes beyond mere reform. Sometimes when I am called upon to repair an appliance, the cost exceeds the value of the unit in question. That’s what’s going on with the income tax today. THE INCOME TAX CANNOT BE FIXED – IT MUST BE REPLACED. Of all the plans being discussed on capital hill, only the FAIRtax can bring the kind of fundamental and comprehensive change that will allow for a permanent fix.
The Marines have a saying – “lead, follow or get out of the way”. If you are not prepared to lead by informing yourself about the advantages of the FAIRtax, you need to either follow or get out of the way. The FAIRtax is that important to your personal future, the futures of your kids, and the future of the nation.
