Enough of the Fair Tax AlreadySubmitted by hadabazinka on Thu, 04/16/2009 - 01:37
The Fair Tax is a gimmick. Granted, it is the most efficient and “fair” way to collect taxes, but that is assuming that collecting the taxes is legal in the first place! What the fair tax does is to make it easier for the government to collect the taxes, it doesn't stop the reckless spending or the illegal confiscation of our hard earned tax dollars.
Since we cannot even collect enough taxes right now to cover what the government spends, the savings from the fair tax would just go toward paying for the massive deficit!
It is annoying seeing the faux conservatives hijack the tea party message with the Fair Tax. It does NOTHING as far as reducing the size and mission of the federal government or returning the country to its true republican form of government.
It doesn’t matter how you collect the taxes since it is illegal and morally wrong to forcibly take one person's property and give it to someone else. DO NOT ALLOW THE NEOCONS TO DILUTE OUR MESSAGE WITH THE FAIR TAX. I can see it now, Obama in his great spirit of bipartisanship, implements the Fair Tax and becomes the most popular president ever, while faux conservatives move on with their pathetic lives thinking they actually accomplished something, when in reality they are still slaves to the Federal Government, but they are happy because they no longer have to fill out those complicated tax forms.
Pathetic, stick with principles.
