Even the Congress knows what a negative impact (see below) the income tax has on the United States, and there is growing sentiment among them to abolish it. But the dumbazzes want to replace it with another unneeded tax. That's like having a wart removed from your nose and thinking it necessary to put a mole in its place. What folly!

109th U.S. Congress (2005-2006)
H.R. 25 [109th]: Fair Tax Act of 2005


(a) Findings Relating to Federal Income Tax- Congress finds the Federal income tax--

(1) retards economic growth and has reduced the standard of living of the American public;

(2) impedes the international competitiveness of United States industry;

(3) reduces savings and investment in the United States by taxing income multiple times;

(4) slows the capital formation necessary for real wages to steadily increase;

(5) lowers productivity;

(6) imposes unacceptable and unnecessary administrative and compliance costs on individual and business taxpayers;

(7) is unfair and inequitable;

(8) unnecessarily intrudes upon the privacy and civil rights of United States citizens;

(9) hides the true cost of government by embedding taxes in the costs of everything Americans buy;

(10) is not being complied with at satisfactory levels and therefore raises the tax burden on law abiding citizens; and

(11) impedes upward social mobility.

(b) Findings Relating to Federal Payroll Taxes- Congress finds further that the Social Security and Medicare payroll taxes and self-employment taxes--

(1) raise the cost of employment;

(2) destroy jobs and cause unemployment; and

(3) have a disproportionately adverse impact on lower income Americans.

(c) Findings Relating to Federal Estate and Gift Taxes- Congress finds further that the Federal estate and gift taxes--

(1) force family businesses and farms to be sold by the family to pay such taxes;

(2) discourage capital formation and entrepreneurship;

(3) foster the continued dominance of large enterprises over small family-owned companies and farms; and

(4) impose unacceptably high tax planning costs on small businesses and farms.

Your tax dollars at work:

Two U.S. Border Patrol Agents are serving decade long
prison terms for attempting to apprehend a known drug
smuggler for illegally crossing our border with more than
700lbs. of drugs!

Almost as outrageous is that the illegal alien drug
smuggler, who was given free medical care, and immunity
for testifying against the agents is now suing the U.S. for
$5 million--claiming his civil rights were violated! Whatever he wins will come out of OUR pockets.

I have just signed a petition calling for the President
to pardon these two Border Agents. I urge everyone to join with me by pasting this url in your address bar for the full story and the petition:

As a septuagenarian with one leg, I cannot run around in the snow (crutches don't work well in snow) waving an M-16 or AK-47, so I do whatever I can, WHERE I can, and HOWEVER I can. Believe me, I'd rather be younger and healthy, have two good legs, and I'd be beating the pavement passing out Russo's DVDs. Who knows, considering my prowess with an AK-47 (carried one three tours in RVN), I might be manning the watchtower at Ed's, watching out for Lon Horiuchi.
