Consider the FairTax When You Vote on June 8th

When you cast your ballot in the primary election on June 8, 2010 in the Seventh Congressional District, you will be making an important decision about your country's future, and there is an issue you should consider - the FairTax. The FairTax is a bill in Congress with 67 sponsors that replaces all IRS-administered taxes with a national RETAIL consumption tax on all NEW goods and services, once and ONLY ONCE. It ends all federal withholdings and deductions. You control how much tax you pay and when you pay tax. With the FairTax, you skip the April 15th tax filing deadline.

A "PREBATE" makes this consumption tax fair to every household lawfully residing in the country. $23 million of peer-reviewed research says the FairTax will fully fund the federal government at current real spending levels. With the FairTax, America starts exporting goods and services again, not jobs. For more information, go to www.FairTax.org

If you like the FairTax, you will get it with Republican candidate Lon Hosford, who has publicly endorsed the FairTax in a press release. You probably will not get it with incumbent Republican Leonard Lance and Republican candidate David Larsen, both of whom have received briefings and will not commit. Republican candidate Bruce Baker has reached out to our organization for a meeting. The only filed Democratic candidate is Ed Potosnak, and you probably will not get the FairTax with him since we have contacted his campaign, and he has not responded.

If you live in other Congressional Districts and like the FairTax, you can vote for Republican candidate Dave Corsi in the 12th District, Republican candidate Anna Little in the 6th District and Republican candidate Alan Bateman in the 4th District. Democratic candidate Todd Theise has reached out to our organization for a briefing. His opponent, incumbent Republican Scott Garrett will not discuss the FairTax.

Please take this information with you when you go to vote.

Jim Bennett is the Regional Director of Americans for Fair Taxation

A Royal Pain

I went to a big wedding over the weekend.  It was in England.

I like to think I was invited, but according to the Royal Guards and the Thames Valley Police I was not.  But more about that later.

You see, not too long ago I received an evite addressed to me from H&M@royalwedbot.co.uk.  Curiously, it was in my spam folder with a warning message. For an evite it was pretty ...
