Taxes As They Should Be
Rumor has it that taxes need not be postmarked until midnight, April 17th this year, but today is APRIL 15th which of course is the traditional tax day.
If only it were like this:
I'd like to take this opportunity to recycle a little rant I have at my old blog called Flat Tax Cure For Oppression:
I have always thought that the federal tax code 'disenfranchises' citizens by being so large and complex that no ordinary citizen could possibly take the time to properly understand it.
I realize that a 29-cent stamp wouldn't get Joe Sixpack's taxes very far, but I love the young Elvis stamp!

Listening to your tax rant I wanted to ask if you have heard about Fair Tax and how it is going to solve a myriad of problems. How the bill has over 55 sponsers and growing in congress. Go to fairtax.org or boortz.com to learn about the tidal wave that is about to engulf this great country of ours brought to you by the people.

I like the Fair Tax, but I would need to see the 16th Amendment repealed, simultaneously. Otherwise we'd be almost inevitably stuck with both a national sales tax and a national income tax.

Repealing the 16th amendment is part of the bill to implement the Fair Tax. It is all covered. read the book.

I have read the book, actually. It oversimplifies the process. You can't just pass a bill. You need a Constitutional Amendment to repeal the 16th Amendment.
Posted by: Will Franklin at April 15, 2006 02:07 PM
ok We need an amendment. This is the strongest effort I know of that has a chance at changing the way we collect taxes. There are 55 representatives in the House signed on to the bill.

I've always felt that paying for that stamp added insult to injury. Not only do I have to send them my money, I have to pay them to take it! It's like the Soviets charging the cost of the bullet to the familes of the men they executed.

...and a small (6" x 4.25") postcard's stamp would cost you only 24 Cents to mail. It's fitting that Elvis is, once again, more than the Government can deal with.
