Pro-FairTax Letter 5
Dear Mr. Moffatt: I wish to thank you for presenting the Fair Tax story by Mr. Ose. As a jounalist you are among the leaders in getting this issue before the public in an unbiased and informative manner.
I consider your willingness to publish this information patriotic. Thank You. I must however, take issue with your stance that the Fair Tax is an idea that will never make it through the legislative process. Because of the internet, perhaps for the first time in my 66 years on this planet, I understand that my representatives have been giving me, for the past fifty years, taxation with misrepresentation. They have not voted what is best for the nation, they have voted what is best for the tax lobby interests who supported their campaigns. The internet has made me much more responsive, and in a representative democracy that is exactly what it takes to succeed. Someone once said the price of liberty is eternal vigalance. 85% of Americans support fundamental tax reform even if they do not know what that tax reform should look like. Myself and other Fair Tax supporters are on an campaign to inform and educate all who will listen. I can share with you that my own experience tells me that this will become an issue in the up coming elections.
I personnally will not vote for any candidste who does not support or campaign on the Fair Tax issue. I know of a grass roots movement to get rid of a one term representative, who refuses to even carry on a conversation about the subject. He will be challenged by someone from his own party who is a Fair Tax advocate. My letters to potential candidates share my passion, and inform them that I cannot vote for those who do not support a Fair Tax. My letters go to both Republicans and Democrats that represent me. This is not a partisan issue, it is a survival issue, an issue on which I as an American cannot afford to loose. I will march up Bunker Hill on this issue, it is the most important piece of legislation to come before Congress in my lifetime.
I also disagree when you say that you believe a consumption tax could not raise enough revenue to cover our needs. We do not have to reinvent the wheel, only look to Florida and Texas who with only a sales tax represent the 11th and 15th biggest economies in the world. Yours for a Stronger and Healthier America.
