Are you trying to start a flame war, friend? I've been trying to get a FairTax discussion going with you for some time now and you do not seem to be at all interested.

If not, say the word and I'll stop wasting my time.

You want to consider it a win, be my guest.

I won't waste any more of my time on an idiot like you.

I put this together simply because every time you try to debate the Sales Tax worshipers you are called names such as commie, NAZI, IRS-lover, liar, and disrupter

Please revise your list.
The #1 secret (which blows everything else out of the water) is that this fradulent tax "reform" is based on the pseudo-religious teachings of L. Ron Hubbard.

Writing science fiction for about a penny a word is no way to make a living. If you really want to make a million, the quickest way is to start your own religion.

~ L. Ron Hubbard

...the movement for consumption-based taxation has been hijacked by a group of extremists whose principal interest is abolishing the Internal Revenue Service.21 They believe that if virtually all federal taxes are abolished and replaced with a retail sales tax like those in the states, then the states can simply collect the federal government's revenue for it, thereby allowing for abolition of the IRS...

21 The Church of Scientology originated this legislation as part of a campaign against the IRS because it refused for many years to allow gifts to the church to be deducted as legitimate charitable contributions, on the grounds that it was not a true church. The IRS eventually relented. See Davis (1997) and Starobin (1995) for discussions of the Church of Scientology's role in the sales tax campaign.

Wrong again, Willie - and wrong BIG TIME!!! The FairTax is sponsored and originated by the Americans for Fair Taxation and has nothing at all to do with the Church of Scientology OR the CATS organization (which is the group the article you post is about).

This is merely another little (and in this case, damn little) bit of misinformation the SQL crowd puts out to try to oppose the FairTax. What you're trying to imply (or stating) is not true at all.

In any event, the articles you post from are 10 or more years old and the CATS sales tax plan never got off the ground having been completely passed by due to the FairTax - a very different plan.

So go back to your class warfare thread Willie ... and don't post your real estate garbage here, either.

A flat tax is definitely better than this plan.


A *crisis* will occur during the obligatory transition phase, and voila, two tax systems instead of one!!

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.

Laugh now, while you can.

Better to reform what you have, then get a whole new system. If you can't reform the current system, then passing a whole new system is just a non-starter.
