Unfair Income Tax; Replace with
Federal Sales Tax
45% of the people pay no income tax (and they are eligible to vote); that
is representation without taxation. The POWER CENTER has brought this about via "divide and conquer."
This is bad for the 55% who go to work and pay income tax; they pay for their
share plus more tax for others who choose not to work.
the income tax is too
unjust, it is too
complicated and the overhead on the part of the payer of the taxes and
the government is too
high; we must repeal the income tax and adopt a federal sales tax. The
sales tax would include all documented purchases, including food, rent and
home purchases. Every tax payer should be able to feel the results of their
are meant to finance the government functions defined in the constitution; and
should not be used to finance welfare or any other programs to reward people
for not working. Welfare should be managed and financed with free will donations
by Churches and Charities. The cities, counties and states can help.
must change from the income tax to a federal sales tax for
all documented sales; then every person would be taxed in proportion to what
they spend. When we get the federal sales tax we would end the income tax.
