Letter to the Editor

Writer Says Eliminate the IRS

web posted March 13, 2014

Dear Editor,
The truth once held so dear has become questionable, not politically correct, and is no longer accepted as TRUTH.  The US Constitution when adopted in 1789 restricted income taxes so that it was not practicable. Then Karl Marx wrote a book explaining the principles of Communism in 1849. He spelled out 10 "planks" that would be necessary to convert a free capitalistic society into a Communist State. The second plank called for a graduated income tax.

Sixty years later the 16th Amendment to the Constitution was adopted allowing for the 2nd plank of the Communist Manifesto. Why are we so afraid to admit the truth. After 100 years this system has grown into a destructive monster everyone seems to hate yet does not think we can do without. 

The point of this is what has been so destructive to our country and is a stated goal of Communism is now so engrained in our lives that we all want to accept it as "American" when it is not. The Fair Tax Plan is the only proposal that will fix this situation and eliminate the need for an income tax and the IRS.
