    Fair Enough

    I really enjoyed the Fair Tax book because of it's stimulating and provocative ideas. If the concept of instituting a fair tax in the federal government took hold, we may be able to stimulate our economy and promote the use of savings accounts. Great read for students of the economy and government!! It is also an easy read.

    History not learned will be repeated!

    History shows us that in the 1773 a group of colonists dumped a little bit of tea Ok alot of tea into the Boston Harbor to show the king that they were being taxed unfairly. (Also known as the Boston tea pary). Hmmm What happened next? Oh yea I know we had a revolution and became the greatest nation on earth. Now that being said, most of Americans in the middle class are tired of the government taxing them to death without representation. History is why you need to read the book and relize that we need a FAIR TAX!

    End the IRS! Turn them into cash register police

    The book is a fairly easy read. The first half of the book is the history of how we got where we are with taxes. The actual bill in congress is only 40 pages long and does not mention that the 16th amendment was NEVER ratified. The FairTax, properly presented is not a tough sell. Keep 100% of your paycheck without any deductions. Strip out all of the taxes from the supply chain, to provide the consumer with a tax free product, to be taxed only one time by the final consumer. All the taxes you will ever pay will only be collected at the cash register. Everything past that is overcoming an objection. The counter proposal is H.R. 1040 sponsored by Congressman, David Scott 13th district Georgia. Is titled the flat tax and is basically as Steve Forbes presented it however many years ago. It retains payroll deductions, all the embedded taxation, and claims to eliminate the loopholes, but retains the IRS, and most of the incomprehensible portions of the tax code. I can only hope that we can make this a topic of national discussion. There is such a huge portion of the country that does not have a clue about what their elected officials support.

    Sign Me UP!!!

    This is the most uplifting book I've read in a long time! Boortz and Linder paint a clear picture on how we got to where we are and what life could be like without the IRS and being taxed to death in America. It's time to take back our power and recreate the American dream. This book needs to be air dropped on everyone's doorstep.!
