Fair Tax Petition!

Many of you may have been listening to the news lately and you have heard a lot of talk about the VAT tax. As an ex-military spouse who lived in Germany for several years, the VAT tax is not a good thing. Please read the following from Gov. Huckabee. I became interested in the Fair Tax during the Presidential campaign in 2007. I am a state representative for the Fair Tax as well. That's how much I believe in the system. I pray you educate yourself and get involved.

Petition For A Fair Tax Congress

Tax Day is rapidly approaching. As Americans prepare to give an unfair and growing amount of their paychecks to the Federal Government, our mission is clearer now more than ever:

Folks, it is time we put the IRS out of business.

Together we can accomplish this goal if we work hard to elect a record number of candidates to Congress this November who support the Fair Tax or who are willing to learn more about it.

But before I explain how we do this, let me first - for those of you who are unfamiliar with the Fair Tax - briefly explain how it works.

You get rid of income tax.

You get rid of all the withholding.

You get rid of corporate taxes completely, totally. After all - those taxes are not really paid by the corporations. They're passed on to the customer with a 22 percent embedded tax in the system.

You eliminate that, which means the prices of what you purchase will go down.

You replace it with a 23 percent consumption tax. Now, that sounds expensive, but you only pay when you purchase something new, whether it's a product or a service.

Also, it's a completely transparent tax system.

It doesn't increase taxes. It's revenue neutral. It will bring business back to the United States that leaving our shores - our current, complicated, unfair tax laws make it impossible for an American-based business to compete with lower tax structures in other countries.

Political insiders will say something this "sweeping" will never be passed. They're wrong! With your help . . . it can - and it will.

I urge you to sign this petition to the Republican candidates running for Congress. Help us reach 50,000 signatures by April 15 > .

I have signed this petition and I hope and pray that you will add your signature next to mine.
