The IRS should be eliminated because it has used a tax system that exploits class warfare and used by every President to go after their political enemies. The most obvious case of abuse was with the famous boxer Joe Lewis who had been robbed ruthlessly by this agency that is the collection arm of the Federal Reserve Bank.

Now President Obama is now being grilled and rightly so for using the IRS to harass the Tea Party movement and other patriot groups trying to silence and shut them down to send a chilling effect not to challenge the White House.

Before 1913, there was no income tax and the US government had no trouble funding itself. When the Federal Reserve Act and the 16th amendment that was fraudulently ratified. Our nation had unhindered economic growth. The Grace commission formed by President Ronald Reagan concluded:

” not one penny of the income tax goes to fund the government”.

The income tax is used to pay the interest on the debt to the Federal Reserve bank for the blessing of using their interest based currency.

Now we hear people calling for the “Fair Tax”. Especially a former IRS agent congresswoman Michelle Bachman. The red flag of the Fair Tax is the prebate on food where the government is supposed to reimburse the consumer for taxes paid at the point of sale. Well just do not tax food, it is that simple.  That is what I see from a first impression looking at the fair tax.

Lawrence Vance a critic of the Fair Tax said emphatically:

The Fair Tax does nothing to tame the federal leviathan. The solution is nothing less than a drastic reduction or wholesale elimination of its revenue source. What is fair about allowing the government to confiscate 23 percent of the value of every new good and service? Fair Tax proponents may call it necessary legislation, but I call it highway robbery.

Another fair tax critic Murray Rothbard also weighed in commenting saying:

The consumption tax, on the other hand, can only be regarded as a payment for permission-to-live. It implies that a man will not be allowed to advance or even sustain his own life, unless he pays, off the top, a fee to the State for permission to do so. The consumption tax does not strike me, in its philosophical implications, as one whit more noble, or less presumptuous, than the income tax.

 

The Fair Tax is a fraud as they say out of the frying pan into the fire. The fair tax will hurt more the working poor and people with fixed incomes who will be taxed on everything they earn paying all they earn purchasing goods and services because they have discretionary income that have to spend on just to survive than disposable income they can spend on luxury or recreation.

To me the fraud of the Fair Tax does not address one big issue. That is ending the reign of the Federal Reserve Bank. It does not eliminate the ” Death Tax” were the US Government writes itself as a beneficiary of an estate without the consent of person writing the will by taxing the estate. We no longer have no taxation without representation. Today we live in a world of taxation out of hesitation. The fair tax is just a Trojan horse of switching from one form of economic slavery for another.

There is one solution that is sure to end the economic slavery that has a choke hold on the economy. Retired Congressman Ron Paul is the real remedy he has been saying for decades.

Shut down the Federal Reserve bank.

Go back to a non interest baring currency.

End the IRS and the income tax replacing it with NOTHING. Not even with the Fair Tax.

Rep. Ron Paul’s concern about the fair tax is in a letter to Larry Burton stating:

However, the real key to tax reform is dramatically reduced spending by the federal government. Until the government spends far less, taxes (in whatever form) will remain too high. While I certainly support eliminating the income tax, I do not want to see it replaced with a high national sales tax which attempts to collect the same amount of revenue. Spending is the real problem.

The Fair Tax does not address reducing spending or proposes reducing the size of government back within the confines of the Constitution. it does not propose ending the Federal Reserve that uses the hidden tax of inflation. Can you imagine a 30 percent tax on goods and services with the hidden tax of inflation added in by a devalued dollar? That thought scares me most of all.
