1) Learn all you can about the FairTax at www.fairtax.org 2) Promote the FairTax to all you know. 3) Demand that your Representatives and Senators vote to pass the FairTax and vote out those who do not vote as you demand. Under the current income tax system most people have no choice but to pay income tax. It is stolen from each paycheck. Under the FairTax everybody can control how much they pay in taxes by controlling how they spend. If we chose to buy only used goods, we will pay no federal tax on those goods. If we limit our spending for new goods and services to below the poverty level, we will pay no federal tax on those goods. Until the 1930s federal spending averaged about 3 % of GDP and the United States grew and prospered.
Congress returned to "work" this week (now there's a laugh) to complete its lame-duck session before taking another holiday. Spending other people's money is a taxing experience.

Their task is to avoid the "fiscal cliff," a geological construct of their own making. It doesn't take a genius to predict both parties will try to do two things: (1) reach an agreement that will allow each side to take some credit and (2) require those who work for a living to pay government more while they come up with phony, or inconsequential spending "cuts."

Whatever they do, payroll taxes...
