The 16th Amendment to the U.S. constitution enacted in 1913 allowed the current Federal Income Tax which was supported by many trusting Citizens, many who did not understand how this change would totally redefine the Federal Government. Many self centered Citizens and corrupt Politicians promoted the "new" Federal Income Tax as a flat Income Tax that would be applied only on the very wealthy. A war weary trusting Citizenry for the most part foolishly believed these snake oil salesmen! Today we know the damage and fear the Federal Income Tax has caused or is causing.
It has become the weapon of choice to punish any and all opposition to Federal Control of our lives. It seems Citizens across the United States are looking for a substitute for the current failed Federal Income Tax. That simple system is defined in HR:25 The Fair Tax Bill. This Bill replaces it does not add to the current Federal Income Tax. This solution was not developed in Washington by Politicians. It was developed and payed for by Citizens! It has been promoted by unfunded volunteer Citizens like myself for one simple reason, it will work!
From 1776 too 1912 the United States grew and prospered as no other Nation in history. We were the shining light of opportunity for the entire World. That opportunity was polluted, perverted and dimmed by passage of the 16th Amendment. This mistake can be corrected. We do not have to settle for a impotent Congress! We do not have to settle for a corrupt failed Income Tax. We do not have to stand by watching as our fellow Citizens are punished for exercising their Right to free speech and expression. The solution is in-hand; passage of HR:25 The Fair Tax Bill will stop these abuses.
Those of you who live in a Congressional District Represented by a Member of the House Ways and Means Committee have the unique opportunity to save this Nation. We; You can turn this ship around before it is wrecked on the rocks of greed & bankruptcy. Call your Representative and demand that they vote to send HR:25 to the House Floor!
