Anti-Fairtax flyer?

The April 15th Tea Party in my hometown is organized by a FairTax representative and will feature our US Congressman speaking on behalf of the Fairtax. I'm bummed about this, considering I don't believe the Fairtax is a solution and it is essentially just as immoral and unconstitutional as the income tax. I am wanting to make flyers explaining this, and also how the Federal Reserve is the main culprit, how it relates to income tax.

Is there anyone who is knowledgeable enough about the dangers of the FairTax that can drum something up quickly? I'm very illiterate when it comes to graphic design. Preferably half-page size so it can be folded like a booklet, black and white, and maybe include phrases such as, "Federal Reserve is the problem, Fair Tax is not the solution" and "Abolish the Fed, Income Tax, IRS and replace them with NOTHING!"

Lots of good information on the failures of Fairtax can be found at Mises.org by Laurence M. Vance. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks.

income tax

Ive never been able to get my mind around the argument that the income tax is unconstitutional. The constitution and court cases seem so clear on the fact the the US Gov can tax its people anyway it wants.

Dont attack me but if you have good info id love to see it... ive just never seen anything other than a few catch phrases...

Would the FairTax be better...

than what we have now? Wouldn't it be nice to eliminate the IRS? Wouldn't it be nice to save the hundreds of billions of $$ trying to conform to the complex tax code?

We all agree that no income tax is the ultimate preference, but could the FairTax be a step toward that end?

The FairTax at least has a chance to be implemented, whereas our preferred alternative doesn't really, does it?

Consider this a devil's advocate argument, I'm sure we're really in agreement, but these are the questions that you'll face.

The Beast Has To Be Starved,

and FairTax will not accomplish that. It will merely prolong the agony.

Undo what Wilson did

You won't eliminate the IRS

But you will increase taxes, because Congress and the President want to increase taxes. Any tax requires that it be collected, and bureaucrats in the government administer the collection. Do you really think making a tax simpler is making it fair?

Plus the real problem is not how the tax is raised, but how much the federal government spends.

The fair tax is no more fair than the patriot act is patriotic. The name is just an advertisement to disguise the reality and sell the idea to a gullible public.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

Henry,

So you don't think the federal IRS will be eliminated? I do, and imagine that we will have less fear of being wrongly prosecuted for not paying income tax -- no more guilty until proven innocent.

And is the reduction of our *time* and *money* spent on conforming... that is figuring out and paying accountants, not going to put a significant chunk back into our pockets?

Couldn't you still keep pounding on the government's door to stop spending, therefore reducing the percentage paid on the FairTax?

Would it be better than we have now?

Nope

They've already said the "fair tax" will be IN ADDITION to the social security tax. They'll just keep increasing the social security tax until you're taxed way more then you are today. You won't be able to afford stuff to buy AND your money will be taken without a promise of you ever getting it back in the social security tax.
