Republicans, Independents, Libertarians, and Democrats Join Together for the FairTax

Michael Reagan's leadership of the FairTax National Victory Campaign has thrilled most FairTax supporters but dismayed a few. The revered Reagan legacy has suggested to some that the FairTax campaign will be less non-partisan and appeal to only a fraction of the American public in the future.

Democrats, Independents, Libertarians, and those who have given up on any political affiliation should take heart. Michael Reagan is part of a strong team at the FairTax campaign that includes Jessica Wexler, Obama state field organizer, Ken Hoagland, an independent who has worked on grassroots issues across the political spectrum, and thousands of dedicated volunteers from across the political spectrum. Neal Boortz, a great FairTax champion, is also a Libertarian. All are working closely together to win a better national tax system and a more honest relationship between citizen and government.

2012 Presidential Poll

For the first time in one of our monthly polls looking ahead to the 2012 Presidential election, Barack Obama trails one of his hypothetical opponents, albeit by the smallest of margins.

Mike Huckabee has a 45-44 advantage over Obama, aided largely by a 44-38 lead with independents.

Mitt Romney does the next best, trailing Obama 44-42. His favorability is 36/32, and he's the most popular Republican among independents (41/32).

Sarah Palin trails Obama 49-41 largely because she loses 14% of the Republican vote to him, making her the only one of the GOP candidates we tested who Obama could get double digit crossover support against.

16th Amendment the Most Amazing Racket in U.S. History

Once Rep. Allyson Schwartz of Pennsylvania came up with the brilliantly greedy idea of taxing even unearned income, I had half a mind to conjure Jonathan Swift's "A Modest Proposal." The famous wit suggested eating young people as a means of easing economic stress, and I felt perhaps it was time to apply his deficit reduction technique to modern times by devouring Democrats like Schwartz.
