Fair Tax Information For Your Congressman

By John McMillen:

Erick, I was told you are the legislative aid on Taxes to my Representative, Jason Smith.

I am Vice-Chair of the Scott County Missouri Republican Committee.  I got acquainted with Jason when he was running for the republican 8th district nomination.  I spoke to him about taxes during the course of that time, but told him I wouldn’t bug him about it during that special election process.  I’ve waited until Jason got his feet on the ground in D C as I’m sure there has been a lot of stress in getting settled in, and getting acquainted with the political landscape there.

I’m sure that Jason agrees that the current tax code is a nightmare and has to be reformed.  I’m convinced it must be replaced entirely. Please find attached my remarks explaining why the IRS Income tax code is an anti-American, anti-republic, anti-individual, anti-capitalist, anti-business bureaucracy that has grown into a wholly owned anti-conservative subsidiary solely devoted to and controlled by the left wing of the socialist democrat party. I hope you will take the time to read it fully and thoughtfully.

Also here’s a video link to a tax debate between the Flat Tax and the FairTax recently in Bixby, Oklahoma. (Tulsa)

BTW, All Kansas US Representatives and Senators have 100% endorsed (Co-Sponsors) We have got to step it up in Missouri. To date we have three US Representatives who are cosponsors: Ann Wagner, Sam Graves, and Billy Long. (We need Jason Smith’s name added to that list.)

Complete list of the 70 US Representative who currently co-sponsor here:

I have written the attached narrative titled “Why The National Income Tax and the 16th Amendment Must Be Abolished” to explain the philosophy behind it.

In addition to that, here’s a link to the 35 page tax code under the Fairtax  HR-25 bill.      http://www.fairtaxanswers.org/PlainLanguage.pdf   written in layman’s English. It would be good to study it, and learn the details of the bill to get some in depth knowledge of what it actually is and what it is not.

The Fairtax HR-25 deserves your and Jason’s thorough education of every aspect of it…the TRUTH of it; not what critics have labeled it falsely as being.

The MO-8th deserves fair treatment and serious consideration of the Fairtax. If you and our Representative Jason Smith honestly believe the ‘income tax’ is a more American values form of taxation over the Fairtax, then we deserve an honest and open explanation of why you think so,  backed up and demonstrated with documented evidence, not mere political rhetoric.

I will follow up with a phone call to you personally Friday 9-06-13 to see if you’ve had a chance to review any of the material and possibly have questions I can assist you with.

Here are some additional links you will find are very helpful in understanding and knowing the Truth.

Do Not Support Obama’s Military Action Against Syria – David Epps

By David Epps:

Here is my letter regarding the subject
Use this link to send one of your own if you like.

Dear Jason Smith,

Do not support Obama’s military action against Syria.h/t utexas.edu
America’s sovereignty has not been violated!
Obama has been creating this war.

The situation in Syria is extremely fluid and Obama’s trigger happy action would be unjust and unwarranted, ill advised, ineffective, and mis-targeted!

1. The rebels have been killing Christians and destroying their towns since the beginning of 2012.
2. This started with the Arab Spring movement and now Al Qeada, and the Muslim brotherhood are involved.
3. The house of Saud and The Arab League wants the US to intervene when they could just as easily take action.
4. The US has been supplying arms to the rebels via Benghazi.
5. Jonathan Steele (17 January 2012). “Most Syrians back President Assad, but you’d never know from western media”. The Guardian. http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2012/jan/17/syrians-support-assad-western-propaganda
6. In April 2008, Assad told a Qatari newspaper that Syria and Israel had been discussing a peace treaty for a year, with Turkey as a go-between.
7. In February 2011, Bashar backed an initiative to restore 10 synagogues in Syria
8. On 18 May 2011, U.S. President Barack Obama signed an Executive order putting into effect sanctions against Bashar al-Assad.
9. Obama knew there were WMD in Syria. The Syrian military stores WMD at a base on the outskirts of Aleppo. June 21, 2013 “The situation in Aleppo is very hot” according to spokesman for Aleppo’s Northern Storm Brigade.
10. The Islamic Ahrar al-Sham Movement is strongest in Aleppo but is smaller than many other factions throughout the country.  It seeks an Islamic state based on sharia law contrary to other factions that want an elected government.
11. The The Islamic Ahrar al-Sham Movement rebels gained access to the WMD and attacked on August 21, 2013.
12. On the question to launch attack against Syria – UN Security Council: NO, NATO: NO, China: NO, Russia: NO, Jordan: NO, Cyprus: NO, United Kingdom: NO, Canada: NO, Poland: NO, Czech Republic: NO, Finland: NO, Germany: NO, Sweden: NO, Netherlands: NO, Italy: NO, Spain: NO, Portugal: NO, France: delay, vote

Beginning in January 2011, The Arab Spring has affected the following countries: Tunisia, Algeria, Lebanon, Jordan, Oman, Mauritania, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Syria, Morocco, Sudan, Palestinian authority,l Iraq, Bahrain, Libya, Kuwait, Western Sahara, Iranian Khuzestan, Borders of Israel

Keep in mind Obama’s incitement to riot of June 4, 2009:
“That does not lessen my commitment, however, to governments that reflect the will of the people…. Those are not just American ideas, they are human rights, and that is why we will support them everywhere.”

Keep in mind Obama’s January 2011 orchestration of the overthrow of Egyptian government
“The White House executed a nuanced and carefully balanced series of statements designed to encourage the fall of Mubarak and begin Egypt on a course toward democratic change. ”

Keep in mind that Obama was and may be still shipping weapons to Syrian rebels via Benghazi. “June 21, 2013 Rebels said the new weapons had already given them a boost. Ahmed al-Kateeb, a spokesman for Aleppo’s Northern Storm Brigade — whose leaders met with Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) during his brief visit to Syria last month — said the group had launched attacks overnight Thursday at several locations on the long, static front line between regime- and rebel-held areas of Aleppo (location of WMD stockpile) after receiving a delivery including ammunition and Russian-designed wire-guided Konkurs antitank weapons.

Here is the bottom line.

Syria’s has stockpiled approximately 1,000 tonnes of chemical weapons, stored in 50 towns and cities  Any attack by the US short of ground troops will not secure the WMD, WMD is in the rebel, Al Qeada, and the Muslim brotherhood’s hands. The cat is out of the bag.

Obama put US in harms way by not thinking about the presence of WMD in Syria when he began his instigating the overthrow of countries.

“One senior State Department official, though, told Fox News that the president’s goal to take military action will indeed be carried out, regardless of whether Congress votes to approve the use of force.”

Force Obama to carry out his threat or lose face. His act will be impeachable! His foreign policy which put the US in harms way is treasonous.

Your task is to devise a strategy to put the cat back in the bag!!!! The only way that I see to put the cat back in the bag is to ally with Assad and not blow him or the chemicals up risking collateral damage beyond measure but to secure whats left and dispose of him and them safely.

Private Property / Income Tax / Fair Tax

John McMillen, of Sikeston, MO, posted the following to Jason Smith’s Facebook timeline.  It’s GREAT stuff!FairTax-AnotherDay[1]

The American system of private property ownership is the most important guaranty of freedom. This was the corner stone on which our founders built our “Bill of Rights” and our “Constitution.”

When personal property rights are respected, honored, and preserved, not only is it a guarantor of Freedom to those who own property, but also for those who do not. Each person is free to move from place to place for a better opportunity, and with no government confiscation of the wealth when individuals are free to produce, more real opportunities are created by the success of others. This principle applies right down to a person’s paycheck.

The best way for government to put more money in people’s wallets is for government to leave it there in the first place. This devilish system developed in America using the IRS INCOME TAX as the Mother Ship of Socialism has brought America’s economy and societal morays to its knees.

A good model to observe was adopted in a land of total communist rule by the Soviets in the late 1980s. It is a good example of evidence as to the original American system’s effects for increased production and industriousness voluntarily exercised among the people, without government coercion.

In that example under ‘Perestroika’ (Restructuring) and ‘Glasnost’ (Transparency) Russian citizens were allowed to keep the wealth they created by raising vegetables on their own garden plots to sell and trade however they wished, and were allowed to keep 100% of the proceeds. Although these individual garden plots composed only about 2% of the agricultural lands in the Soviet Union, they produced 25% of the food!

When Soviets kept the wealth they pe rsonally created individually, they produced almost 16 times more than when it was forced from them by government order (taxation) at gunpoint!

The Fairtax Bill HR-25 is available now with 65 cosponsors. 3 of Missouri’s U.S. Representatives are cosponsors of this Bill. Jason, I hope you will study this bill closely and consider becoming a cosponsor as well. I hope you will seek council with Rob Woodall, Georgia, Sponsor of HR-25, and Ann Wagoner who just signed on as cosponsor last week for their insights.
