With the FairTax there could be no government threat, because there are no exemption to take away.. !! The US Government would be out of the church. Which is religious freedom, where the government cannot threaten them! The FairTax taxes us ONE time whenever we purchase something NEW. One time, no hidden taxes, no taxed multiple times, able to keep all of your income and fica withholding. We get to see quite precisely what government costs us on every new retail receipt. No more audits for the private citizen. We are able to keep what we earn to save, spend or invest when and how much WE want, from the fruits of OUR labor. No more need for tax lobbyists to either bribe for more private property to be confiscated to benefit others.
