The Minimum Wage in 2013

The minimum wage-

Almost as unconscionable as leaving federal taxes embedded in domestic product price when going to free trade this 30 years, the period in which we lost our manufacturing industry.

Now we are to the point where not only do we have the Federal government have a track record of maintaining an unemployment pool high enough to keep workers lined up at the door to hire, but now we have a communist law that tells employers they don't have to hire for more then this minimum wage or pay more.

When the Minimum Wage act was created, the same standard of living today demands $15.08 as a minimum wage.  As you can see, making such an adjustment will counter even more of slowing down this decline.

The cure is:

#FairTax(made for free trade)  and Constitutional Conduct(Federalist #78) #ConCon please!

FairTax and the poor, middle class, all classes

Today, the average embedded Federal Taxes in the price of domestic goods is about 22%.  In service price it is 29%.  The poor are paying for taxes already paid, with our money.

Under FairTax the prebate plan makes all spending on essential goods, spending that is under the ceiling of poverty, tax free.  No embedded taxes and no federal taxes.  That means spending on essential goods will drop 17% to 24%, with workers keeping their gross pay.

FairTax is a voluntary tax, meaning you only pay when you can afford to and only when buying new goods and services.  The cost of services will go down and for the most part the cost of American goods with the FairTax will remain about the same, with one difference, your only going to pay federal taxes once, not twice like we do now, from our pay and when buying.  We will also see the price of domestic goods gain a 17% advantage over imports, meaning more jobs then workers.

As FairTax kicks in the use of safety nets will dwindle to nothing with jobs for everyone.  This will help the poor gain on their personal prosperity.  Our current sharing of wealth communism structure is failing as we head for the fiscal cliff.  The poor do not want to view the landscape after we fail nor does anyone.

Poor up to the upper middle class will prosper under FairTax.  Here is a chart on what FairTax will cost you based on your spending for new goods and services, not on how much you earn:

Peter Konetchy~ Have we lost? Can we win? Freedom lost in one generation reality


The Konetchy Connection

 "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we
will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."
Ronald Reagan


Dear friends


Thirty years ago I would have considered it incomprehensible that we could lose our nation in a span of a single generation, but its happening.  


I'm trying to make a difference by running to represent Michigan's 4th district in the U.S. House with my focus being to restrain government, empower people, and secure our liberties.


Please review the short video explaining why I'm challenging one of the most powerful politicians in Washington.

I need your help.  Please forward this message to everyone you know concerned about our nation,


Donate to my campaign.



If you live in Michigan's fourth congressional district, please volunteer your time to help.

I can't fight this battle, and win, without your support.

Fwd: Banned for ‘Biblical’ Reference (Shocking)

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Mike Huckabee <>

Subject: Banned for 'Biblical' Reference (Shocking)

Mike Huckabee

Please find a special message from our paid sponsor, They have important information to share with you. Sponsorships like this help to allow us to continue to send you my commentary free of charge but do not necessarily reflect my views. In addition to our sponsor's message, I have provided you with my commentary from the Huckabee Report yesterday and information about my show on Fox and my radio show which airs weekdays on over 200 stations nationwide and is broadcast 24/7 on my website. As always, I appreciate your support. - Mike Huckabee

Dear Reader,

Sean Hyman recently recorded a video titled 'The Biblical Money Code.'

Since releasing this video last month, we have received a ton of positive feedback. Thousands of Americans are now sharing this presentation with friends and family on Facebook along with other social media outlets.

In short … the video has been viewed over a million times in the last few days.

However, I was shocked when some of our regular media partners refused to air the presentation. Their reasoning:


I explained to our media partners that their readers don't have to be Christians to profit from this Biblical Money Code, and many billionaires, such as Warren Buffett, are already making money hand over fist with this unique strategy!

I even explained that Sean is a well-known financial expert who regularly contributes on CNBC, Fox Business, and Bloomberg TV, and that Sean's Biblical Money Code helped him turn his father's $40,000 account into $396,000.

Yet they still banned us from sharing Sean's presentation.

All that was suggested by some was that I "cover up" the Biblical reference. (This is something I am not only unwilling to do, but is impossible to do, given that the Bible is a core component of Sean's strategy.)

Bottom Line: I want to encourage you — no matter your faith — to watch this video for yourself.

Millions already are benefiting, and I am confident that this presentation will cause you to look at investing in an entirely new and exciting way.

And Now Mike Huckabee...

Whatever happened to shame? Comedians have had a field day with Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer's attempts at political comebacks. But aside from their entertainment value, these stories bring up another issue: what's happened to the simple virtue of shame? Have we lost completely and forever, the red-faced, head-hanging, tear-shedding sense of shame? When was the last time you heard a politician associated with words like humility, contriteness or modesty? We seem to have blurred the lines between shame and fame. In a culture that worships celebrity rather than substance, we ought not to be surprised that those who want to lead our political institutions play by the same rules as entertainment and sports celebrities.

Embarrassing and immoral behavior no longer disqualify someone for public service, they "validate one's humanity." And the abracadabra of just saying "I'm sorry" wipes the slate clean, with the added bonus of 100 percent name I.D. Ego, narcissism and raw ambition have replaced the notion of selfless servanthood. Elected offices now go to the most brazen, driven and self-fueled megalomaniacs. George Washington had to be begged into service as President, and he absolutely refused to make it a lifelong career. He would never make the first cut of a modern-day primary that requires one to have what I call the Elijah Syndrome: saying, "I'm the only one that God has left!" What we don't see enough of is the Jesus model: "Let this cup pass from me."

Today's political figures are often just that: figures. As in action figures: artificial miniatures of the real thing. Shame and the capacity to actually display is not a bad thing. In fact, it's like humility. It's a good thing. It reveals that we do know the difference between right and wrong, and we're utterly disgusted with ourselves when we fail. Where there is no shame, all that's left is fame. And that is a sorry substitute for character.

Why the flat income Tax? FairTax is the only way to prosperity~

FairTax is 19% as a tax rate, prohibits a VAT, 23%  with 4% returned to us to pay for taxes on essential goods, making no one exempt.  Today, about 22% of the price of food is hidden federal taxes.

Flat Income Tax-

By this action, Greed is in control for a Nationalist power via Marxist Doctrine:
'Progressive Income tax is the greatest of tools in the Communist Box'  ~ Karl Marx.

President Reagan gave us a flat income tax and congress sold 1,900 amendments for waiver and exemption.  Then what happens, GE takes jobs to China from Wisconsin, after a free ride?.  Say no to this reset button on this graft and put us back to work by getting federal taxes out of the price of goods and services.

Get rid of the IRS and give us back our liberty!  FairTax TCOT SGP

Delay and Defund Obamacare - Press Conference on Capitol Hill

Fwd: Our Heroes | FairTax Friday



"I look upon ourselves as partners in all of this, and that each of us contributes and does what he can do best." – Jonas Salk

Our Volunteer Heroes

One thing that has consistently separated the FairTax® movement from other campaigns is the sheer number of individuals who have dedicated their time, energy, financial resources and extraordinary talents to advancing the FairTax Plan. 

We have hundreds of thousands of supporters, like you, who donate, actively write your elected Representatives, work booths at local events, make presentations, pass out FairTax materials, assume local, state and regional leadership positions and work tirelessly to educate this great nation on why the income tax must be replaced with the FairTax Plan. 

It is not unusual for someone to call or write and say, "I want to volunteer, what can I do or put me to work." What is unusual is when someone says I think I can make a difference by doing X or Y and then proceeds to do it without fanfare and without the need for guidance. 

These are the individuals who just innately know what needs done and then engage others to help them achieve almost miraculous results.

Ronald Reagan said, "The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things.  He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things." Today, I want to share with you two examples of great FairTax leaders.

Dave Armstrong – The Slide Guy

Dave Armstrong is the volunteer State Director for Indiana. Before retiring, Dave spent his career at a major international corporation, specializing in polymer seals.

Like so many of you, one day Dave heard Neal Boortz talking on the radio about the FairTax.  Intrigued, he then read Neal and John Linder's book and his FairTax passion was born. Off Dave went, speaking to anyone and everyone about the virtues of the FairTax Plan. But he felt there was more he could do. 

After the elections, Dave sensed that people of all political leanings felt a certain disillusionment. A natural born problem solver, he wanted to lift people's spirits and keep the FairTax in the public eye. Problem solved - he created a website, and began producing "FairTax single message slides" for distribution on Facebook and Twitter. 

Today, Dave Armstrong has produced over 600 slides that have been posted and shared on countless Facebook and Twitter pages.  His impact - incalculable.  Dave is now offering his slides to any FairTax supporter for download and distribution on their Facebook and Twitter pages. Thanks Dave!  They can be found here

Glen Terrell – The Master of LTTE

For over 35 years, Glen Terrell, Ph.D. was an award winning, university based physics teacher.  Concerned about public policy during the 2012 election cycle, Glen and his friends Norm Redhead and Roy Newsom developed a program to submit citizen opinions via "Letters to the Editor – LTTE." When the campaign ended, Glen learned about the FairTax Plan and decided his LTTE program could also help the FairTax campaign. 

That November, Glen sent me an email saying he felt he could make a difference with his LTTE program – we chatted and, as they say, the rest is history. Glen Terrell, along with Norm and Roy, launched the FairTax LTTE program and began recruiting volunteer writers. 

To date Glen Terrell has recruited over 100 volunteer writers who have had hundreds and hundreds of LTTE's, Opinion Editorials, blog pieces and misinformation corrections published in a variety of communication mediums across the United States. What's more, Glen and his team have developed a process that enables the LTTE team to immediately respond to, react, correct and proactively educate citizens and elected officials on the virtues of the FairTax Plan. 

Sadly, a key member of Glen's team – Roy Newsome – recently passed away. We will forever be grateful to Roy for his incredible contributions to the FairTax LTTE initiative.

I would like to also express profound appreciation to Glen, Norm and the hundreds of members of this extraordinary team for a job very well done.  If you have writing skills, a good understanding of the FairTax Plan and would like to be a member of this elite writing team, contact Glen Terrell at

Rep. Bachmann signs on as Co-Sponsor

Congratulations to the Minnesota FairTax team! Representative Michele Bachmann (MN-6) has signed on as the 69th co-sponsor of HR 25 in the U.S. House of Representatives. Hundreds of contacts with her office by FairTaxers have paid off!

District Targeting Campaign update

Finally, congratulations to Ron Babin, volunteer President of the Michigan FairTax Association, for the new FairTax billboard campaign he is initiating in Michigan's 4th Congressional District. This effort is part of our District Targeting Campaign that we shared with you earlier in the year. Ron's team is finalizing production of a major billboard that will be put up in a highly visible area of the 4th – home of Representative Dave Camp – Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. Once the boards are up we will share a picture. 

Until next week,

The FairTax Act In The News

FairTax bill is solution to nation's economic woes, powerful politicians - Ravalli Republic

Millions of people out of work, underemployed or relegated to part-time employment. Thirty percent of Americans getting some type of food assistance from the government. The federal government so far in debt that anyone paying attention has to be worried. No, I'm not talking about the 1930s. We're in big trouble now.

Our national leaders, the House, the Senate, and the White House are so bogged down that they don't seem to see the forest for the trees. In the meantime, our deterioration accelerates. It's time they drop their nonsense and do what's right for the country. There is only one completely vetted solution out there, HR25, the FairTax Bill, that both revives our economy for the foreseeable future and reduces politicians' power to grant favors to special interests. The bill eliminates all taxes on any income and all payroll taxes and replaces them with a consumption tax on new goods and services. A prebate system provides for no taxes to be paid by any American up to a government set level. The poor pay less, big spenders pay more and jobs are plentiful. Best of all, the IRS is eliminated.

Contact your congressman today and ask that they co-sponsor the bill.

- Anthony Gasbarro, Fairhope, AL

FairTax Act should be passedThe Gilmer Mirror

Many congressmen are so intoxicated on the power that comes with the IRS and the tax code the congress doesn't govern effectively.

This couldn't happen if the FairTax Act were adopted.  This proposed tax legislation has been before congress for over 10 years but never even considered.  With the FairTax there are NO LOOP HOLES; absolutely no opportunity for "crooked deals" by elected congressmen.  Its passage would annihilate the IRS too.

Educate yourself about the FairTax.  Contact your congressman; demand its passage.

The corrupt congress is bringing our nation to ruin.
