The FairTax Series: America's Road To Prosperity Part 2

In this installment of the FairTax series I want to cover the cost of compliance and enforcement with today’s tax codes. Before I go into the complexities of compliance and enforcement I want to spend a few minutes dispelling the favorite myth of the anti-FairTax crowd. One of the things that put me off the FairTax at first was the ...

Who’s Going to Pay?

Have you ever been surfing the web and found a video that made you drop your jaw and made your blood pressure go through the roof? I recently came across one such video. The sad thing is that this woman is just one example of the many in our country who expect that their decisions should come without responsibilities. The ...

The FairTax Series: America's Road To Prosperity, Part 1

This is the first of a 5 part series I am writing based on the book “The FAIRTAX: The Truth”. In the series I take a 300+ page book and condense it down to a virtual “cliff notes” version designed for the novice political reader. I designed the series for those who are not very knowledgeable about politics or the ...

We can't cut the debt just by cutting spending…

The U.S. national debt can’t be trimmed by cutting spending alone. That is the illogical and easily-disproved lie circulating through the main stream media.  It’s a mantra that is repeated… over, and over, and over.  Considering that this claim is at the core of the current progressive demand for tax increases, it’s sad that only a handful of fiscal conservatives are ...

Get Your FREE Cellphone, America! It’s the NEW Entitlement!

Yesterday I posted an ad on Craigslist for some things I am giving away. I posted in the Free section, because quite honestly I just do not have the time to haggle with people. The things I am getting rid of are not in the greatest of condition, but they are still usable for someone just starting out. When I ...

Democrat Plan Will Cause Country to Die Sooner

Obama-appointed Health and Human Services Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius is supporting President Obama and congressional liberals in their concerted effort to kill America sooner. To make sure that no critically-thinking Americans stop them on their reckless spending binge, Kathleen channeled the oratory prowess of Alan Grayson who last year told us that Republicans want us to “die quickly”. In her testimony to ...

Liberalism: Perpetuating a Society of the Poor

Assuming their motives are pure, liberals are to be applauded for their dedication to assisting the poor and needy. But that does not excuse the abject failure of their misguided ideology which they wield like a sledge hammer – smashing prosperity wherever they find it in their lunatic quest to achieve equal outcomes. Ignoring the fact that that Good Samaritans, ...

Social Justice Sophisticates Assault Prosperity

Leaders that value self determination and independence are denigrated by those who idolize the memory of a former president who said “Ask not what your country can do for you”—and then lowered taxes. John F. Kennedy allowed people more freedom and control over their lives, which conflicts with grandiose notions of governmental entitlement. He certainly knew that helping those in ...
