State Rights could promote passage of HR:25 The Fair Tax Bill

web posted September 30, 2013

Dear Editor,
It is time for Citizens to unite against an out of touch, out of control, indifferent, Federal Congress. State Governments have been impotent in resisting Federal imperialism. The abolitionist spirit must rise again, or we will find ourselves bound by Federal servitude. How you ask?

We must broaden our goals! We have worked to support Federal Representatives supporting HR:25. We currently have 71 Federal Representative Co-sponsors.  It is time to increase pressure on the U.S. House Leadership!  We must also support and vote for State Officials that are willing to support HR:25 for the relief it offers all States and their Citizens.

These State Representatives and Senators must be willing to use the powers of the United States Constitution to limit Federal power!  We must ask those seeking Local & State Office, "Will you demand{insert your State use its State Right to petition the Federal Government for a Constitutional Congress called for the sole purpose of repealing the 16th Amendment to the United States Constitution?" 

This must become a priority for every Governor, State Representative and State Senator seeking Office!  This seemingly forgotten State Right is spelled out in Article 5 of the United States Constitution, "The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or,on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for pro- posing Amendments, "

When faced with the possibility of a State called Constitutional Convention and repeal of the 16Th Amendment both Houses of Congress will be forced to consider HR:25.

The  Federal Income Tax Systems foundations are based on lies and misleading statements. These same lies are promoted by the current Congressional Leadership.  The current Federal Income Tax, started as a "flat tax" applied to the top 1% of income earners. Our grandparents and parents made the mistake of trusting the Federal Government Representatives and Senators who promoted this farce! 

They failed to consider the ramifications of a Federal Tax system that would steal from the Citizenry on a scale-equal to the current Federal Income Tax. The U.S.Congress, the Executive Branch, must be brought under control of the Citizenry.  This will require the Citizenry to put aside foolish bickering and class warfare. Congress continues to promote these practices to divide and conquer Citizen opposition to the current failed Federal Income Tax. We must repeal the 16th Amendment and return too Article 1, section 8s, wording which required (uniform)taxes " but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall l be uniform throughout the United States "

Nothing short of a repeal of the 16th Amendment will successfully repair its damage! The current ideology circulating throughout Washington DC, that gives any credence to fixing the current failed system is the same old smoke and mirror campaign used over the last 100 years!  Your current Representative and Senators are lying about supporting Federal Tax reform if they are not in favor of repealing the 16Th Amendment!  They are lying when they say they are trying to make the current failed Federal Income Tax fair or equal!  They are lying when they claim they are trying to remove Federal Income Tax loop holes.

There is only one complete Bill before Congress that creates a "uniform" equal Federal Tax!  One of its requirements is repeal of the 16thAmendment, that Bill is HR:25. Please go to http://www.fairtax.orgor http://thomas.loc.gov/home/LegislativeData.php?n=Browse.

Down load and read a copy of the Bill, it is only 131 double spaced typed pages long, yet replaces the thousands of pages making up the current failed, corrupt, Federal Income Tax.
