So please, Rose, ACT today by signing NTU's online petition calling upon both the House of Representatives and the Senate to enact the FairTax and by making a contribution of $25 or $50 or more if you like. Your donation will definitely help NTU expedite passage of the FairTax by convincing Congress to get off their "duffs".
So if you want the FairTax, Rose, it's up to you... Washington cannot and will not ignore the wishes of the voters. So please act today: sign NTU's petition and make your contribution of $25 or $50, to help NTU turn the FairTax into reality!
P.S. Rose, the beauty of the FairTax is that it helps ALL Americans, but it helps the poor and middle-income Americans the most. Helping NTU to enact the FairTax will uplift millions of other deserving folks who genuinely want and need the FairTax for their families and a better life. Please sign NTU's petition and make your donation today!
So who is the NTU and what are they about? Here's what it says on their web site.
Since it was founded over 35 years ago, the National Taxpayers Union's Number One job has been helping to protect every single American's right to keep what they've earned. Our guiding principle has always been: "This is your money and the government should return it to you." We are a nonprofit, non-partisan citizen group whose members work every day for lower taxes and smaller government at all levels.
Why is an organization that claims to be for getting government out of our pockets and reducing the size of government, promoting a NEW TAX PLAN that will do neither? This morning I found the answer.
IRS tax revenue falls along with taxpayers' income
Federal tax revenue plunged $138 billion, or 34%, in April vs. a year ago — the biggest April drop since 1981, a study released Tuesday by the American Institute for Economic Research says.
When the economy slumps, so does tax revenue, and this recession has been no different, says Kerry Lynch, senior fellow at the AIER and author of the study. "It illustrates how severe the recession has been."
For example, 6 million people lost jobs in the 12 months ended in April — and that means far fewer dollars from income taxes. Income tax revenue dropped 44% from a year ago.
"These are staggering numbers," Lynch says.
Big revenue losses mean that the U.S. budget deficit may be larger than predicted this year and in future years. CLICK HERE.
So now we know the real reason why the big push for a National Sales Tax as well as a Larger Michigan Sales Tax. With all the taxable Manufacturing companies moving out of the country, and the loss of jobs along with it, I guess it only makes sense to our politicians to figure out a way to keep the money flowing in.
Not to mention the huge threat that Ron Paul and those dog gone followers of his pose to exposing the Federal Reserve System and the coming inflation.

Ron Paul: We Don't Need More Of The Same!
Ron Paul may try and play kingmaker of sorts in the 2010 elections. With his grassroots army ready to hit the ground, "Paul is expected to set up a campaign he’ll call 'Ten in ’10,'" Roll Call reports. "While he may personally endorse any number of candidates during the course of the cycle -- and in a few races, he already has -- he’ll invite candidates for all offices to seek special attention and assistance from his PAC."
Oh oh, that means more people like maybe....

The Money Bomb Gets Passed From Ron Paul To Son Rand
The concept of a money bomb, pooling a bunch of campaign donations in a single day, was made famous during Ron Paul’s Presidential campaign of 2007 and 2008. Many others have utilized the practice to draw in campaign funds and press mentions since then. Now, it is Ron Paul’s son, Rand Paul, who is ready for his own.
This one is to raise money for his exploratory committee for the U.S. Senate representing Kentucky. The day is next Monday, June 1st, 2009. The goal is $25k in a single day. More details are here.
We need more Ron Pauls in DC. Without cloning Ron Paul it is unlikely you’ll find someone more similar than his son, Dr. Rand Paul.
Please help Rand Paul out by donating on June 1st!
