"It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world."
Does the Fair Tax address this? Sadly no. The Fair Tax only want's to shift the burden away from the Privilege Corporations and place it on the back of the citizen.
"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them."
This is what government is doing today, wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.
Does the Fair Tax address this issue. NO. It only exchanges one method of collection for another, wasting the labors of the people, another pretense of "Government is "God" and will take care of you."
"When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe,"
Does the Fair Tax address the corruption? No, it only continues to feed the Beast when we should be confronting the beast head on.
"To compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors, is sinful and tyrannical."
The Fair Taxers would have you continue to fund the government who compels you to furnish contributions of money for things which you believe to be sinful and tyrannical.
"A wise and frugal government,
...leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government."
The Fair Tax by their own promoters mouths, admit that the Fair Tax does not address one of the root issues that Thomas Jefferson warned us about.
God Bless our Country and God Bless us.
