Chairman’s Report – July 5, 2019

Spirit Of July 4th Needed Again For The FAIRtax

The following is from a press release prepared by Paul Livingston for the Florida FAIRtax Educational Association.  We believe it is important we share Paul’s fine article with all of you.

Once upon a time, on July 4th 1776, the U.S.A. was born in a revolution against the king, government control and tax tyranny.  It was based on the belief all men under GOD are created equal, government derives its power from the consent of the governed and no one should be taxed without representation.

Since the revolution, America has flourished and has become the world’s leading economic power and leader of the free world.  America was known as the place where “dreams can come true”.  You were not forced to accept your low circumstances but, with hard work, could accomplish anything.  But over the last 100 years, many are finding fewer and fewer opportunities.

One of the largest causes is the income tax, which allows the heavy hand of government to directly tax its citizens.  This has allowed Congress to sell benefits to groups of our citizens at the expense of others.  Instead of spending time to improve their products, businesses and Individuals find they must devote a significant amount of their resources to securing a tax benefit.

From July 4, 1776 to right before the passage of the 16th Amendment in 1913, Americans were proud to be citizens.  But since it's passage Americans have lost their liberty becoming more and more "subjects".  Any tax reduces the amount remaining for consumption.  The higher the tax the lesser the amount our Families have for consumption, leading the Family to “beg alms” from the government and put up with being subjects.

Wealth creation and production should be dependent not on subsidies from government but on a citizen’s own willingness to work hard.  A government, freely elected by the Individuals it governs, should provide essential services and ensure Individuals have the opportunity to live their lives and prosper.

Rather than continue on a course to create more subjects who are beholden to faceless, unelected bureaucrats, America must reverse this trend and again freely reward hard work and savings.  The July 4th spirit is still very much alive and one of the best ways to see it spread again across the land is to repeal the 16th Amendment and replace the income-payroll tax system with The FAIRtax bill H.R. 25, the only “fair tax”.

As Ron Maiellaro, President of Florida FAIRtax Educational Association, often states about The FAIRtax, “When you understand it, you will demand it.”  Learn more by visiting our website by clicking "Here".


We wish everyone a wonderful 4th of July!  While you are enjoying the holiday which celebrates our Independence with your family and friends, please take a moment to salute all of the brave Individuals who have worked, and sometimes gave their lives, to preserve for us the country we enjoy.  As Paul’s article points out so well, anyone who truly cares about the American people should say, “Its time to pass The FAIRtax, the only “fair tax”!

The author George Bernard Shaw said, "You see things; and you say “Why”.  But I dream things that never were; and I say “Why Not”.
We say to you President Trump, “Embrace The FAIRtax and real tax reform!  Stand up to The Swamp.  They will oppose you anyway because they see you as a threat.  What have you got to lose?”
The truth is the truth.  Remember, if we don't continue to tell the truth and demand a change, then this quote from George Orwell's 1984 may foretell our children's future: “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—forever.”

This week's Episode 167 - "IRS To Create An Anxiety Index"

Nina Olson heads the office of the National Taxpayer Advocate, a position within the IRS.  After 18 years she is leaving and in her final report to Congress, she is recommending for the universally feared and distrusted tax collecting agency, a “Taxpayer Anxiety Index” be created to increase public trust in the IRS.  “How taxpayers perceive and feel about the tax agency is directly connected to their willingness to comply with the tax laws,” Olson wrote.  After 100+ years of IRS abuse, is this even possible?  Not!

In other words, the tax code is so bizarre and the IRS so abusive, tax evasion is at an all time high and worsening every year. And the bureaucratic answer to this huge problem is to create another office within the IRS at our expense?  You just can’t make this stuff up!  Join The FAIRtax Guy’s discussion, as they slog through this bureaucratic nightmare to the only true solution to our national tax quagmire, The FAIRtax.  The FAIRtax Guys will help you bring your blood pressure down to normal.

Recent comments from viewers encouraged The FAIRtax Guys to relaunch the “Slogan Contest”.  There is a lot of talent in the viewership and The FAIRtax Guys would like to use some of that talent to come up with a catchy slogan that helps get the message out.  America loves slogans.  So get involved and “slogan away”.  Click "Here" to email us your favorite slogan about the IRS.
What Can Each Of Us Do?
Call the local and DC offices of your Representative and 2 Senators.  Use the following script:
  • I am sure Representative ____ or Senator ____ is in favor of everyone obeying the income tax laws.
  • After they assure you their boss is not in favor of anyone breaking the law, ask if they are aware of the Cebula study showing $9 trillion of evaded income-payroll taxes over the next 10 years.
  • Since most will say they don’t believe their boss has seen the study, drop off a copy, email a copy or click Read Evasion Study Summary and copy/paste the link into an email.
  • Say you are going to call back in a week and ask what the Representative or Senator is going to do to stop this evasion.
  • In a week, call back and ask specifically what the Representative or Senator is going to do to enforce the law.
  • They probably will say their boss believes simplifying the income tax will handle the problem.
  • Explain, when people evade income taxes, they are also evading the 15.3% payroll/Medicare tax and state income tax.  So, it’s unlikely they are going to pay 30-40% when they were paying 0% because they have already decided it’s okay to cheat.
  • Say, the only way to reduce evasion is to increase by tens or hundreds of thousands the number of comprehensive IRS audits done each year.
  • Point out Evaders do not self-identify by putting an “E” on their income tax return.
  • 80% of the people likely to be audited are trying to comply, but they will be forced to endure these IRS audits as well.
  • Ask if the Member is in favor of this?
  • If they say no, then ask again how the Member proposes to stop people breaking the income tax laws.
  • Then explain the way to handle evasion without unleashing the IRS audits is The FAIRtax.
  • If you meet with your Representative or attend a town hall and ask these questions, you will be even more effective.
