Rep. Linder/Boortz Fair Tax Fraud!

The overwhelming majority of Americans, including business owners, agree the IRS and “income taxation” must be ended. There is no real dispute here. But the so called Fair Tax does not put an end to Congress imposing a tax calculated from income, nor would it end various types of misery now suffered by the American people under the existing Internal Revenue Code!

The so called Fair Tax promoted by Rep. John Linder and Neal Boortz is a fraud being perpetrated upon the people!

Contrary to what the proponents of the Fair Tax claim it will do, the unadulterated truth is, the Fair Tax proposal[/u] would expand the number of tax gathers in the United States to include individual tradesmen and entrepreneurs, and, even ordinary working people engaged in self employment, forcing them to "register" with folks in government in order to pursue a livelihood [ see SEC. 502. REGISTRATION], and would require these poor souls, along with America’s businesses, to become a modern-day regiment of enlisted tax gathers for the federal government, increasing the number of tax gathers throughout the United States to an all time high, and compelling them to maintain burdensome and inquisitorial records and reports under a penalty of perjury, just as is now done under the existing IRS Code.

The Fair Tax would, if adopted, give birth to a new tax raising code to satisfy the wants and fancies of tyrants in government___ all the above to be implemented under the pretext of the "Fair Tax Reform“, a reform which promises to abolish the IRS and income taxation, but in substance and truth will only tighten the iron fist of government around the people’s productivity, and demand the less fortunate people in our society to shamefully kneel to the iron fist of government to receive their monthly government check___ a family consumption allowance which cleverly creates a new army of voters dependent upon folks in government for their subsistence. Were we not warned by Hamilton in Federalist Paper 79 that “A POWER OVER A MAN’s SUBSISTENCE AMOUNTS TO A POWER OVER HIS WILL”?

In order to accomplish the featured attractions of what Boortz and Linder claim their plan will do with reference to abolishing “all corporate and individual income taxes, payroll taxes, self-employment taxes, capital gains taxes, estate taxes and gift taxes”, there is but one, and only one answer. The American voter must demand their elected public servants, their employees, to put the following wording into the federal Constitution:

The Sixteenth Amendment is hereby repealed and Congress is henceforth forbidden to lay “any” tax or burden calculated from profits, gains, interest, salaries, wages, tips, or any other lawfully realized money.[/i]

Keep in mind the Fair Tax proposal is a list of suggestions to future Congresses to not lay and collect “corporate and individual income taxes, payroll taxes, self-employment taxes, capital gains taxes, estate taxes and gift taxes“. It leaves the door wide open for a future Congress to re-establish such taxes in addition to a newly created across the board consumption tax.

Real change can only be guaranteed by a constitutional amendment which binds the hands of Congress. The ring leaders who promote the snake oil Fair Tax, flat tax, value added tax, etc, all have one thing in common . . . they leave the door open for Congress to tinker with taxation, manipulate it as is now done, and they do not promote permanent and real change by a constitutional amendment which expresses the will of the people. I suspect this tax reform crowd is either very stupid, or very slick___ government friendly slick!

In order to accomplish what Boortz and Linder are selling, the words must be put into the constitution! As Thomas Jefferson has warned us "In matters of Power, let no more be heard of confidence in men, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution"[/i]

Adopting the above suggested wording as an amendment to our Constitution will bring us back to our Founding Father's original tax plan, a plan which was carefully designed to provide more than sufficient power to raise a federal revenue. But what Congress, and friends of big government do not like about our Founding Father’s original tax plan is, it contains a number of important checks and balances to control the actions of Congress, and would, if returned to, forcefully encourage members of Congress to follow sound fiscal policies, including the closing down of unnecessary and unconstitutional federal government offices. And so, Congress, and the friends of big government, and those who live off big government, prefer to have the so called “Fair Fax reform” which is intentionally designed by its revenue neutral feature, to support big government and all the existing, and unconstitutional political plum jobs[/u] on Capitol Hill, many of which have six figure salaries.!

As stated above, the overwhelming majority of Americans, including business owners, agree the IRS and “income taxation” must be ended. Hopefully the American people, as individual Americans and taxpayers, will get on the same page on this issue and advocate a direct and simple plan, the adoption of a constitutional amendment clearly stating:

The Sixteenth Amendment is hereby repealed and Congress is henceforth forbidden to lay “any” tax or burden calculated from profits, gains, interest, salaries, wages, tips, or any other lawfully realized money. [/i]

"The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation and foreign commerce. ... The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives and liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement and prosperity of the State."[/i]---
