Tuesday: UnFair - FairTax Hits Theaters!

"He that can have patience can have what he will." - Benjamin Franklin

On Thursdays, Facebook fans have adopted a growing ritual affectionately known as "Throw Back Thursday." Users post their favorite remembrances from the past – a childhood picture, a tattered piece of high school memorabilia, news clippings of a place where the locals once gathered.

For Facebook, taking a walk down memory lane has proven to be a popular activity for many users. For the FairTax® campaign, taking time to look at the past provides a possible window into understanding the journey that has gone before us and lies ahead.

The FairTax legislation, first introduced in Congress 15 years ago, represents the greatest transfer of power from the Congress to the people since the Founding Fathers began drafting the Constitution in 1787. Some people say they love the FairTax but don't think it will ever become law. Others believe that we have to repeal the 16th Amendment, and because repealing an amendment takes a long time, there is no reason to push the FairTax now.

It is important that doubters consider these historical facts:

  • While the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery, may have taken less than a year to be ratified, the decades leading up to its passage divided the nation and engulfed it in a bitter and costly civil war, but its supporters persisted and it was enacted.
  • The 27th Amendment, which prohibited increasing or decreasing the salary of Members of Congress until the next term of office begins for the House of Representatives, was introduced in 1798 and even though it took 202 years, 7 months and 12 days to ratify, its supporters persisted and it was enacted.
  • The 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote, began as a serious movement in the mid-19th century. Congress passed the legislation in July 1919, and ratified it in August 1920. As noted by the National Archives, "Few early supporters lived to see final victory in 1920," but it was enacted.
  • The 26th Amendment, which lowered the voting age to 18 years of age, was debated for thirty years, but took three months and eight days to ratify after being passed by Congress.

Fulton Sheen said, "Patience is power. Patience is not an absence of action; rather it is "timing" it waits on the right time to act, for the right principles and in the right way."

Those who seek to protect the control, power and abuse they have carved out with the current income tax system believe that if they just keep throwing up roadblocks and ignore the FairTax movement, we will eventually join the doubters and give up and go away.

We have a message for them.

Never underestimate our patience as being a lack of action. Never doubt our unwavering principles in our quest for simple and fair taxation for all. Never question that we understand the concept of timing, and we are confident our time will come.
What our opponents fear the most is that the FairTax is the right and the best thing to do for America. Many of them instinctively know the truth of what Victor Hugo said so long ago,  "All the forces in the world are not so powerful as an idea whose time has come."

To further help educate people on the FairTax, in just four days; one of the biggest FairTax events in 15 years will take place in theatres across the nation. The 90-minute movie, "UnFair: Exposing the IRS," will be showing for one night only on October 14 at 7:00 P.M. across all time zones.

This groundbreaking documentary promises to do what no other movie has done before - tell the stories of betrayal, corruption, intimidation and the harsh personal, economic and political realities of America's income tax system and the IRS. More importantly, it presents the FairTax Plan as the only real solution!

Don't delay. Buy your ticket today. And call your friends, family and neighbors and invite them to join you at the movies. Go to http://www.unfairmovie.com/tickets/ to locate theatres near you and to buy advance tickets. And if you are interested, click here to check on Theatre Captain opportunities in your hometown.

Until next week,

Documentary Takes Aim at Former IRS Official Lois Lerner - Live Trading News

Perhaps unbeknownst to her, former IRS official Lois Lerner will be making her film debut on 14 October in a documentary where she is 1 of the villains.

The film titled Unfair: Exposing the IRS, and will screen in 674 theaters for 1-night only, courtesy of Fathom Events, a company that brings sports, concerts, speeches and other alternative entertainment to movie screens.
The movie is about alleged abuse at the IRS, the agency responsible for collecting taxes in the US…

The scandal triggered several investigations, with the US Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration confirming that the IRS did, in fact, subject Tea Party groups and other conservative organizations to far more scrutiny than it did liberal groups. Ms. Lerner dismissed calls for her resignation and was eventually called to testify before a House Oversight Committee…

FairTax Fact

The FairTax, unlike a flat income tax, eliminates the IRS both symbolically and literally. For an orderly end to the income tax system, the IRS is phased out within 3 years of the effective date of the FairTax, HR25/S122.
