I feel any elected in WDC that will not co-sponsor the fair tax is a politician, not a statesman and should be voted out of office ASAP. I will no longer vote for the lessor of 2 evils. I support the Constitutional party.

Very interesting how 85% of the people polled are aware of and support the FairTax bill yet there is little if any mention of it by the mainstream media and it rarely comes up in discussion or debate among the 3 front running candidates that same media has chosen for us

Yes, and it's also strange why we don't hear about Ron Paul anymore. It is as if the media has totally dismissed him and what he stands for. He is for the FairTax. Equally strange is why none of the 3 top candidates will comment on the FairTax.

Well, Ron Paul isn't exactly FOR Fair Tax. He said he'd sign it if necessary; but he'd prefer to wipe out the Federal Reserve scam (ALL of our income tax pours into this), and therewith end the income tax without any replacement.

Well the thing you have to remember is that the Fairtax also gets rid of the income tax. It is simply a sales tax, levied on NEW goods and services.

Under the current tax code (tax on income), low income earners are penalized the most. Every corporation includes the cost of their income tax in the price of their product, paid for by customers. We need to get rid of all income taxation.

The reason that the so-called candidates will not comment is that they are just like the other clowns that we all seem to vote into office. They want all your money, pure and simple.Support is growing but until we tell congress & senate that we will not support them unless they are truly FOR the American People and therefore support the Fair Tax.

Contact your state senators and congress reps and push them to support. This is where the emphasis needs to be.
Many people also think that the Fair Tax will eliminate ONLY income tax and do not realize it also eliminates payroll taxes as well. This is a big thing I face in promoting the Fair Tax.
Also, more people will be paying in tax therefore that is what will save our social security and medicare.

Please, if you want the Fair Tax pushed in Washington, go to and vote for Mike Huckabee in all the vp poll links posted there and send emails to [email protected] or [email protected] and ask for McCain/Huckabee. Write letters to John McCain, PO Box 16118, Arlington, Va. 22215. McCain showed some initial interst in the Fair Tax and Mike is a pretty persuasive guy. Let's get him to Washington and see what he will do for us!!! Hucksarmy needs you now!

Most everyone who talks pro or con about the FairTax ignore the fact that broadening the tax base across the nation is the sanest, and only fair cure for Social Security. Anytime the media and the politicians talk about taxes and or Social Security they treat them as separate issues. They really aren't. Not when it comes to the FairTax. Approximately 48% of U.S. citizens actually pay income taxes. A bit more pays into Social Security. With the FairTax everyone who sets foot on U.S. soil pays into the system regardless of how they derive their income. Only people with some kind of an agenda or so awfully afraid of change cannot or refuse to see the logic here.

I'm halfway through Ron Paul's book, "A Foreign Policy of Freedom". What Ron needs to understand is that the FairTax will go a long way toward accomplishing his desire of non-interventionist politics. Why? Because the FairTax makes it desireable for US corporations [the military-industrial complex, for example] to get along with other nations rather than jumping in to police them, thereby earning us their hatred. By removing the income/payroll tax component from our economy and letting the free market dictate pricing, many of the economic reasons we have for intervening in the affairs of other nations will disappear -- because our corporations and industries will be too busy on our own soil reaping the economic benefits of the FairTax [read Neal Boortz books, "The FairTax Book" and "FairTax: The Truth" to see what I mean] to meddle in the politics of other nations. The FairTax is truly a "win-win" situation. So let's go for it -- do not give in and do not give up. I understand and appreciate Dr Paul's position on not wanting to commit to co-sponsorship of the FairTax based on his philosophy of government and taxation, but he needs to re-think the practical application -- the FairTax is a freedom-based tax of peace and prosperity -- although, once implemented, I am for lowering the FairTax rate to no higher than 10%-- why should government be allowed to ask for more than God?
