Would Dr. King march today???

By Paul Livingston

Dr. King was a great civil rights leader. We still need his leadership. Our federal tax code infringes on our civil rights: Denial of due process, No trial by jury, Forced self-incrimination, Unreasonable search and seizure, Lack of privacy, Unequal treatment of citizens, Complex and ambiguous laws. Witness the IRS to see government tyranny. The tax code has enslaved us to loose our God given right to our production (income, savings, and investment). It is free people and markets, not laws and regulations that create a higher standard of living with lower costs and higher quality.

The problem is the 16th Amendment, passed in February, 1913 to enable direct taxation of the individual without limits. Then came the first legal income tax, the IRS, payroll taxes and tax withholding. Government gained huge taxing power and We the People lost Freedom, Liberty and Civil Rights as protects by our original Constitution.

There is a better way! The FairTax® bill HR 25 enables us to determine how much tax you pay after the basic care and feeding of the family and repeals16th Amendment with companion legislation.
