Orlando Fair Tax Rally! What a SHOWING!
While many, including myself, believe that all direct personal taxes should be repealed - our founding fathers would cringe if they saw the system of income-redistribution that has taken root - like Kudzu - in our fair nation.
So when a good idea comes along, it deserves our support. The first step is saving the nation is moving power from the government back to the governed!
But there are those, myself included, who see the Fair Tax as a step in the right direction.
The Fair Tax has other benefits too. The "underground economy" - the cash collected and spent by the criminal element (Drug Dealers, etc.,) becomes taxable under the Fair Tax - because it's a tax on what you spend not on what you earn.
So, those underground incomes, some billions of dollars every year, now become subject to the Fair Tax, on the same level playing field as the money you work hard to earn - every time they buy something!
Oh, and then there is the matter of that little police body... the IRS.
The IRS is an abhoration - an ugly cyst on our governement. With the IRS, it's Guilty until proven innocent, and the burden of proof lies on the accused, not the accuser.
That is exactly the type of policy our Founding Fathers fought against - the repression of individuals by an "all knowing" and all powerful government.
To my friends who say any form of direct tax is evil, I say sometimes the cure is almost as bad as the disease. Ask anyone who's taken Chemotherapy... But the fact is, you have to start somewhere
See a few more pictures of the Rally below.
Don't forget to show your support -
