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.

Huckabee Debate Ends With The FairTax

We all know from the last posting & many other sources that Congress has expressed much outrage over the recently exposed IRS abuses of power.  The question is how much of the outrage is real or feigned?
Click here to hear Tara Setmayer, Communications Director for California Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, engage in a lively debate on the May 18 edition of Huckabee on FNC in which she offers the solution to so many of our economic & political problems by proposing that Congress "fix the tax laws" by enacting the FairTax.
Tara is an excellent debater with a good grasp of the facts & a smile that helps win the audience over.  Every bit as impressive to me is that the congressman she works for is not a FairTax cosponsor & yet she endorses it.  Tara's debate opponent, Elie Mystal, sat there defending "nothing".
Governor Huckabee ended the program by pointing out that the FairTax not only transforms the economy but abolishes the IRS meaning that under the FairTax you do not pay your federal taxes to a government agency like the IRS but rather when you use or consume a service or new good in the U.S.   You do not keep or file any records with the government so there is no chance of the type of audit abuse that has recently taken an ax to the very bedrock of our founding principles – all per BO's design.
Right from the actual legislation – the FairTax is a Bill "To promote freedom, fairness, and economic opportunity by repealing the income tax and other taxes, abolishing the Internal Revenue Service, and enacting a national sales tax to be administered primarily by the States."
The FairTax Plan is a nonpartisan proposal that replaces all federal taxes on individual & business income, as well as payroll, estate, & capital gains taxes with a 23% (tax inclusive) national consumption tax on both personal & government consumption of new goods and all services in the U.S.  The FairTax taxes only the final consumer or user of new goods & services in the U.S. meaning essentially it taxes retail sales & government consumption.
If eliminating IRS intrusions that have gone way beyond the pale is important to you please help spread the FairTax word.  You can start by telling your next door neighbor the next time you see him.
