Tax Changes How About The Fair Tax?

Opinion

Let me try to understand this. We are debating changes to our “Progressive” tax code, to make it easier for politicians to shake us down with us liking it, with people who can’t balance the checkbook and won’t listen to us anyway. Am I missing something? 

So far, I have not yet heard the words “Fair Tax” enter this discussion. Why is that? Well, It’s all about economic control that allows politicians to pick and choose winners and losers. That power alone allows them to keep their jobs, stiff us, and make us play their game. I’m tired of it. 

When corrupt politicians control our lives and we don’t recognize what it is doing to us, we allow their actions to pass on without complaint hoping apparently, that somebody else will do something.  Americans just want to be left alone to provide for their families and their retirements, and it’s always the damn politicians who stand in our way. Less government means more freedom and I think the crippling effect of government deciding who pays how much, is unconstitutional anyway. A Fair Tax would solve that.

Congressional Republicans are ineffective at governing. Before, a few Congresses had over seventy GOP co-sponsors for the “FairTax”. Today, it’s half that. The reason was that it was once safe for them to say; “Yes, we support the Fair Tax” but, they never had an inkling they would actually have a chance to vote for it. They don’t want that. Now they just ignore it and hope it goes away.

When the Republicans became the majority and changing the tax code became a serious issue, they could still talk around it. With Trump’s election, Republicans went into a panic mode because they can’t or don’t want to explain the FairTax, let alone implement it. 

I have talked with congressional campaigners in past elections and realized most are clueless about how the real tax system works or how the Fair Tax could improve economics for all. 

This might help explain Obama’s twenty trillion dollar national debt he saddled us with leaving Donald Trump to take the blame when it all collapses, as it will, shortly. 

The most important reason for their impotence is that under the Fair Tax politicians lose control over us. ‘Nuf said?” They would lose their power to reward and punish Americans using the current tax code and its enforcement arm, the IRS Gestapo, as a weapon. With the Fair Tax, loopholes would be closed and there would be no reason for the corruption lobbying encourages. Lobbyists bring money, and favors to our public servants ensuring the continuation of government corruption, not because money corrupts but because politicians are corruptible. One only need look at the Clinton Foundation and the Podesta Group to see real crime rings that can run circles around the Mafia. The changes wrought could be incalculable. Patronage would be threatened, tax lawyers and tax preparers would go belly up, and, lacking a “raison d’faire,” corrupt politicians would go home and try to exist off their congressional retirements. Not too shabby. With the Fair Tax we could also demand, because we desperately need it, term limits at all levels of government, not just the President.

But, that ain’t gonna happen. You know it and I know it because we simply do not have the power to lift the yoke of oppression off our shoulders or stop the lash on our backs and, be it a Democrat, a Republican or far left Socialists like uncle Bernie and Aunt Warren, our public servants in Washington won’t allow that.  Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (12Nov17)

Publishers Clearing House Scam Alert – Be Aware

News

The Union County Sheriff’s Office has reported it has received several calls from citizens who have received phone calls from someone claiming to be from Publishers Clearing House. The callers are saying you won a LARGE amount of money. Then they are asking for personal information because you will have to pay taxes on that Large Amount of money you just WON!!
Just hang up or as one lady did give them the Sheriff’s Office address, 378 Beasley St. Blairsville, GA as they will be glad to collect the money and them.
The Sheriff’s office wants everyone to enjoy this beautiful day and stay alert for all the different ways people try to take your hard earned money such as IRS Scams (Remember…the IRS will not attempt contact with you by phone, email or text messages; only by USPS mail), Computer Hostage Scams (hacking into your computer and locking it down until you pay “Microsoft” several hundred dollars to unlock it) and the most recent is gentlemen going around saying they have leftover paving material. Ask them nicely to leave, if they don’t call the police.


Another is two ladies in a black Crown Vic. who are going around to local merchants in the Blairsville area saying that one of them is dying of throat cancer and needs money and will pay you back when she gets her SS settlement the following week.

That is a run down of the calls the Sheriff’s office has received this week and its only Wednesday, what will they think of next.
Be safe and be ALERT!!
