Save America With The 'Fair Tax' Act By Gordon Bishop


By: Gordon Bishop

Abolish the federal income tax!

No more taxes on savings and investments!

A "Fair Tax" can completely fund the federal government, Social Security and Medicare!

You control how much you spend!

So what are we waiting for?

You, the taxpayers of America burdened with an income tax that is costly, wasteful and sinking America into inevitable bankruptcy.

All current forms of federal taxation would end!

You would keep 100 percent of your paycheck. You control how you spend youy paycheck. Itís your money. You make the decisions as to how you want to spend your money.

The Fair Tax would create more jobs and give the USA a level playing field when selling overseas.

United States Senator John Linder (R-Georgia) is sponsoring the "Fair Tax Act of 2005." If enacted by Congress, it would accomplish all of the above.

Simple. Easy. And affordable.

Itís the best way to downsize government without disrupting the economy.

To join the "Fair Tax" movement in America, just sign the "Economic Freedom & Fairness" Petition supporting forward-thinking solutions.

Go to -- and liberate the working class of taxpayers. Grassfire is trying to give the working class the same kind of freedom Americaís founders gave to those who joined the American Revolution in 1776 with the "Declaration of Independence." We won the Revolutionary War, but have lost our country since the 16th Amendment (income tax) became "Law" in 1913.

A lawsuit has been pending before the United States Supreme Court demanding that the IRS and the U.S. Treasury produce evidence that the 16th Amendment was legally ratified by the 38 states in 1913.

Without that evidence, the federal income tax is "illegal." The 16th Amendment is bogus. A fraud.

The IRS and U.S. Treasury refuse to recognize the lawsuit, or petition. Hey, if they donít have evidence, the income tax is dead before a court of law.

The solution for the taxpayers and the courts is the Fair Tax Act of 2005. If thatís passed by Congress and signed into law by the President, the income tax can finally be buried, once and for all.

Write, fax, e-mail or call your congressman and two U.S. senators who represent you, and demand they support the Fair Tax Act of 2005. If they donít sign on this revolutionary legislation, vote them out in the next election.

Your vote, collectively, can return freedom, liberty and opportunity to a now socialist-Marxist United States of America.

Free yourself from taxes Ė and an oppressive, regressive government committed to spending and taxing you and this nation into bankruptcy.

I have been calling for a Second American Revolution since my early days as a columnist and reporter, beginning in 1959 and continuing to this day Ė 46 years, to be exact.

Look at what has happened to the value of your work and your paycheck since 1960. The 1960-dollar is worth only a dime today. Thatís what our tax-and-spend government and the unlimited income tax have done to this once great nation.

America is drowning in a sea of staggering debt totaling more than $25 trillion, from consumers and homeowners to businesses and governments at the local, state and federal levels.

Much of America lives in deep debt as a way of life. We live beyond our means because of heavy taxes and wasteful government.

Weíre lucky if we can keep half our paycheck after paying for income taxes, sales taxes, property taxes and countless "hidden" taxes also known as "fees." (Check your phone bill lately?)

Itís long past time to stand up and vote for a Fair Tax, or vote out the corrupt politicians who serve the corrupt special interests Ė not the law-abiding public interests.
