About Me

In writing the "About Me" portion of this blog I thought about the purpose of the blog - namely, preventing the growth of Socialism & stopping the Death Of Democracy in the American Republic & returning her to the "liberty to abundance" stage of our history. One word descriptions of people's philosophies or purposes are quite often inadequate. I feel that I am "liberal" meaning that I am broad minded, independent, generous, hospitable, & magnanimous. Under these terms "liberal" is a perfectly good word that has been corrupted over the years to mean the person is a left-winger or as Mark Levin more accurately wrote in his book "Liberty & Tyranny" a "statist" - someone looking for government or state control of society. I am certainly not that & have dedicated the blog to fighting this. I believe that I find what I am when I consider whether or not I am a "conservative" & specifically when I ask what is it that I am trying to conserve? It is the libertarian principles that America was founded upon & originally followed. That is the Return To Excellence that this blog is named for & is all about.

NJ FairTax Supporting Congressional Candidates Prepared For Misleading Attack Ads

As the campaigning for the mid-term elections winds down to the last few days before the election the number of attack ads against FairTax supporting congressional candidates like Anna Little have increased all over America - but we in FairTax NJ have been ready for them for quite some time. Both of our major party congressional candidates in NJ who won their primaries have been thoroughly trained in what to expect - although both of them expressed such understanding during the training that it was hardly necessary.

This past Saturday & Sunday nights Mike Huckabee graciously devoted the monologue portion of his TV show on FNC to combat the attack ads & to challenge any one who supports the attack ads to debate him on the purposely misleading claims of the ads versus the real principles of the FairTax.

In addition below is a Press Release distributed to newspapers in Congressional District #6 to let people see the lies they have been told. Attack ads against the FairTax have backfired against candidates in some states like Georgia when the electorate realized how badly they were being played for fools. It takes a time or two to learn all of the ropes but the more each of you do to help will only accelerate the ascent up the curve so that as quickly as we can we pass HR 25 - the most important piece of legislation in our lifetimes for America.

Press Release

Anna Little Attacked by Pallone Misrepresenting the FairTax

Twenty two year Democrat incumbent Frank Pallone has been airing advertisements in which he attacks his Republican rival, Anna Little, for supporting an unnamed 23% sales tax on the middle class. The national sales tax that Pallone refers to is known as the FairTax - a bill in Congress (HR-25) with 65 cosponsors. The ads are a misrepresentation along with similar ads used by the DCCC to attack FairTax supporting candidates across the country.

The ads, both false and purposely misleading, claim that the FairTax is a new tax that will hurt the middle class and are on top of all other current taxes. FactCheck.org confirms this is simply false, as the FairTax is a replacement tax. The FairTax replaces most all current federal taxes and eliminates the IRS. The facts are that the FairTax eliminates the income tax, Social Security & Medicare taxes, and death and gift taxes and replaces their revenue with a simple retail sales tax that will save $250 billion each year in tax compliance cost. Americans will then receive their entire paychecks free of federal taxes and when they spend their money they will be paying their taxes.

Americans will finally see their true tax burden for the first time in generations, as the tax will appear on every sales receipt. Today, by taxing businesses and all the labor and materials in the production of goods and services, much of our tax burden is hidden in the price of the things we buy. There are substantial hidden embedded taxes in the price of everything we buy today that will be eliminated by enactment of the FairTax - such as the corporate income tax, the employers' share of Social Security & Medicare taxes, and the corporate cost of compliance. These hidden taxes are paid by all of us when we buy American produced products. To make matters worse, we pay again when we lose our jobs because our companies' products are placed at a competitive disadvantage compared to foreign produced products that are shipped to America with a minimal tax component. Rather than hurt the middle class the FairTax is a tremendous boon to the American economy including a resulting increase in jobs.

The attacks by Pallone are attempts to preserve the status quo, where politicians have power never intended by our Founding Fathers. The FairTax eliminates this power by eliminating the buying and selling of tax favors which takes place under today's income tax system and corrupts our representative form of government resulting in an unresponsive and bloated government.
