FairTax replaces income tax and abolishes the IRS.

Dear Editor:

Over 200 years ago our Founders fought tyranny uniquely giving us a democratic republic.  It changed the World.  Americans held liberty steadfast for over a century until Feb. 3, 1913 when the 16th Amendment began trading away our God given Liberties wrested, by our Founders, from tyrants. 

Since, we’ve bartered liberty for perceived physical/ financial “security”, lessening and weakening personal liberty.  The 16th Amendment [Income Tax] set the stage to diminish freedom ceding power to tax, thus track income.  The IRS was set up to monitor citizen’s income, enabling the political class [the U.S. Senate and House] to know and control every aspect of our private lives.  To comply we self-report all income related life aspects.  The IRS/code enables monitoring and manipulation, hence control of each of us. 

The Supreme Court Decision on the 2010 Affordable Care Act upheld citing “power to tax”, adding control of medical life under tax policy. 

FairTax is ready-made to replace income tax and is the game changer. Look up FairTax, learn and join the fight to reverse government control of our lives.  FairTax replaces income tax and abolishes the IRS.
