Well, the self anointed fountain of the ``painful truth``, Neal Boortz, [a radio talk show host who is promoting H.R. 25, the alleged fair tax] has revealed himself to be ignorant and void of truth when it comes to a knowledge of our Constitution!

Last week when a caller correctly asserted on Neal`s show our Constitution provides a rule that no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to hold any office or public trust, Mr. Boortz was found to be totally ignorant of such a provision in our Constitution.

Likewise, Mr. Boortz also shows his ignorance of our Constitution in promoting H.R. 25 as a legislative act, which, if adopted by Congress and enforced, would violate another fundamental rule and protection of our Constitution. It would violate the constitutionally guaranteed fair share formula requiring a general tax among the states [which H.R. 25 is] to be apportioned among the states so each state contributes an amount of a total sum being collected under the tax in proportion to its allotted number of votes in the House of Representatives.

Our Founders Fathers agreed by their ratification of our Constitution that those states paying the lions share of the tax burden to fund the Constitutionally authorized functions of the federal government, would have a proportional voice equal to their financial contribution in determining how their money would be spent. Of course, socialists and the friends of big government dread the founding fathers` fair share formula as it boils down to a rule requiring representation with proportional obligation![/i]

H.R. 25 is ``conceptually identical`` to the Marxist income tax because it intentionally seeks to calculate the amount of tax to be paid from wealth, property and financial success within each particular state ___ a political philosophy advocating from each state according to its ability, rather than an equal per capita tax apportioned among the states as the founding fathers intended by our Constitution’s fair share formula articulated in Article 1, Section 2, cl. 3. [/i]

If Neal Boortz was a supporter of our Constitutionally limited Republican Form of Government as he repeatedly claims to be, and supports the concept of taxing consumption, then he, at the very least in promoting H.R. 25, would demand a provision be attached to H.R. 25 requiring the rule of apportionment to be observed when laying the H.R. 25 tax among the states. And, without such a rule being applied to the tax, he would have no alternative to not supporting H.R. 25 as it violates our existing constitutional rule of fairness___ it violates our Constitutional guaranteed fair share formula articulated in Article 1, Section 2, Clause 3.

For an example of Congress abiding by the rule of apportioning a general tax among the states see Act of Aug. 2, 1813 apportioning a tax of $3 Million and each state’s share of the tax. H.R. 25 violates this rule!

``If the Constitution was ratified under the belief, sedulously propagated on all sides, that such protection was afforded, would it not now be a fraud upon the whole people to give a different construction to its powers?``[/i]___ Justice Story
