Chuck Norris on taxes....

From Worldnet Daily:

"Today, the IRS is the No. 1 enemy of your pocketbook. Who doesn't fear an IRS audit? It's the only federal agency that considers you guilty until proven innocent. It can't be overhauled or even reformed (Congress' attempts have failed).

The best answer is to abolish the IRS, sweep away the present tax code, and implement a Fair Tax that lives up to its name. As Mike Huckabee says, "Wouldn't it be nice if April 15 were just another sunny spring day?" (Mike will be hosting a Fair Tax rally in Columbia, S.C.)

The Fair Tax does away with all taxes and puts in place a single consumptive (fair) tax, which is the closest, practical, modern proposal to the taxation system favored by the founders. With the Fair Tax, the harder you work and the more money you make, the better off you and our economy will be. You pay taxes only when you buy something, which means you can control how much you're taxed, and you're never penalized for working hard.

It's time we had a system through which people didn't have to figure out ways to cheat to save their money. Again as Huckabee says,

The Fair Tax is a completely transparent tax system. It doesn't increase taxes. It's revenue neutral. But here's what it will do. It will bring a business
back to the United States that is leaving our shores because our tax laws make it impossible for an American-based business to compete … the Fair Tax was designed by economists from Harvard and Stanford and some of the leading think tanks across the country. …
There are also trillions of dollars hiding in offshore accounts. With the Fair Tax, these people can bring their money back to invest here, which would give a huge boost to our economy. It's the biggest stimulation package there is. As the Fair Tax website says, "Think of it as the world's biggest economic jumper cables!"

If the Founding Fathers were here today, I believe they would support the Fair Tax. As James Madison said, "Taxes on consumption are always least burdensome, because they are least felt, and are borne too by those who are both willing and able to pay them; that of all taxes on consumption, those on foreign commerce are most compatible with the genius and policy of free States."

We don't need more tax reform. We need a tax revolution! And the Fair Tax will provide it. If we all jump on the Fair Tax bandwagon, and demand out representatives implement such a taxation system, we can economically restore our nation and make the financially impossible become possible again.

Friends, we must keep fighting. Join your nearest T.E.A. party or Fair Tax rally, and bring your cell phone too so that you can call Congress and the president to share why you've gathered together (the phone number for representatives and senators is 202-224-3121, and the president's is 202-456-1414).

If you haven't found the nearest location for a T.E.A. party or Fair Tax rally, go to, or WND's list. Invite your friends, too. And don't forget to bring copies of this article or one like it that explains the Fair Tax, so others can be educated as well. Why wait? Forward it now to everyone you know, and let's get the party rolling!"
