THE Fair Tax is a great deal more complex than a simple flat tax. It is NOT a regressive tax because of said complexity. However, it is not complex at all in terms of taxcpayer obligations. You just pay at the register. No IRS, no tax filings.

Get the book. "The Flat Tax," and study it. About $10.00 on Amazon.

There will never be a fair tax while I'm alive. I understand you all fear we'll end up like France. Shivering with fright, are you? Well, well. I'm no dumbass, I don't need your explanation of the meaning of ANYTHING. So durn sickening, you have to laugh to keep from crying.

No, the fear is ending up like California.

And in the meantime high-profile tax payers like movie stars, sports figures and singers are turning in their US passports to escape the growing tax bite. My guess is that the wealthy, if they haven't already, are moving their liquid assets off-shore, into trust funds, escrow accounts, IRS approved tax shelters and plain old numbered accounts.

Congress taxes wages, NOT wealth.

The FairTax will never be put in place. If it was it would be so different from the current fairytale version you would not know things had changed, because they would not have. The same people who control 90% of the money in the U.S. would have the most input on ways to keep the basic systems the rich currently enjoy to avoid tax.. We have to spend energy fixing the current system and stop wasting time on the fairytaletax & anything Ron Paul. Jobs will solve a lot of our problems, so with that in mind you are also the problem.

Negative on me being the problem. You know what the problem is. You know what the solution is. Don't assume I am a Ron Paul supporter, in fact, far from it.

Like sending in Elvis to replace TINY TIM as the main bill.
Its a bit more complicated that you seem to understand. It also concerns me that the people you want to save this country have not been able to get politicians to give them what they need, just what politicians want them to have. What really concerns me is this group has not been effective since WW 2, thats the last time our military WON a WAR.

I would be more than willing to support a candidate with military experience.

Granted we need a change in politicians but not baby killers. I would come nearer accepting those that refused to serve.

The reason current politicians are so willing to send soldiers to die overseas is because they themselves have not served and have no sons in the military who are risking their lives. Mitt Romney is the perfect example. In fact, Vietnam-era draft dodgers who are current politicians are an even better example.

Would note that Chuck Hagel is a Vietnam Vet and would make a fine Secretary of Defense and that those that oppose him never served in the US military or worse, were draft dodgers. Am looking at you Rush Limbaugh.

there is some merit to what you say about our military not being effective or having won a war since ww2,but just look at where we have been and why we have been there!imho,with the possible exception of getting the taliban and bin laden out of afgan.,these 'wars' have been the results of pure political folly.at any rate,these(somewhat mixed)results are not the fault of our armed forces.they are second to none!a few yrs.ago,fidel castro was quoted as saying that the U.S.was the greatest military power that had ever existed in the history of the world.and i agree with him on that much.

Draft dodgers? You forgot Ted Nugent and Dick Cheney. Non-military defense hawks? That would include most of the GOP.

Look at the numbers and you'll find answers. 2.4 million jobs are directly linked to the military/industrial complex. Plus, the US has 2.2 million men and women in uniform. Plus, the US spends more on it's military, including hardware, than the next 13 nations do COMBINED and that includes Russia and China! Add in what the CIA spends, which is secret, and it would probably be 18 nations!

That's a lot of money and profits for people like Halliburton (sp). Can you imagine what would happen to the economy if the US were to suddenly cut back (or not start wars)?

Castro may or may not have said that, but looked what happened at the Bay Of Pigs! Face it: we're war mongers and that's nothing to be proud of!

I sent Saxby a quarter rencently and told him to add it to my portion of the tax deficit. I hope it didn't push him over the edge to retire. I feel kind of guilty. Do you think maybe it was just the last straw and I broke the camels back. I feel awful. I got a letter back from him but I was afraid to open it so I just threw it away. Bless his heart. I hope this wasn't my fault. I kinda liked the old guy. Oh Well.
