Our mission is to build a network of funding sources and a community of activists who will advance an agenda that embraces a philosophy of Constitutional Limited Government, the Rule of Law, Economic Freedom, and the traditional values that sustain individual initiative, personal autonomy and responsibility.
Our network community is dedicated to replacing current elected liberal central planners who believe in command and control socialism by a few elite technocrats, the few ruling the many, with leaders who support the freedom of the individual, free markets engaged in free trade, and free market solutions to healthcare, retirement, energy and education.

This issue focuses on taxes. As unlikely as it is to become law, the reasoning supporting the Fair Tax make a compelling case for the economic benefits of a simplified tax on Consumption rather than Savings, Investment and/Production. The Fair Tax regime encourages investment in job creating business that produce more goods and provide more services than current mixed economy model with its politicization of investment and production and concomitant misallocation of scarce resources. In addition to the economic consequences to consumers and citizens of economic resources, there is the concomitant of ‘special interest’ pleading, campaign contribution and the corruption of the political system by ‘rent seekers’, seeking benefits for a few at expense of the many rather than seeking the common wealth.

FairTax.org Speaks to American Investors
The simplicity of the Fair Tax alone is enough to justify it.
Fair Tax raises the same revenue, taxes consumption not production, savings and investment. More investment; more jobs; more goods and services and the lower income participate in paying for their government.
FairTax.org announced another full page ad promoting the national retail sales tax that is proposed as a healthy alternative to the income tax system. The full page ad appears in Investors’s Business Daily today.

Robbing Banks: Where the Money Is
The wisdom of Willie Sutton. The Government robs The Forgotten Taxpayer for the same reason Willie Sutton robs banks.
Mask made by Willie Sutton which he planned to use in an escape from Eastern State Penitentiary. Notorious bank robber Willie Sutton and 12 other inmates broke out of Eastern State Penitentiary in 1945 by tunneling under the 8-foot-thick walls, but were quickly rearrested. Sutton was a prolific bank robber. He was most known for his famous quote when asked why he robbed banks. His answer: "Because that’s where the money is."
And answers the question why the government taxes the productive citizen, The Forgotten Taxpayer, because he or she is where the money is.
Only the government or a thief can take your money without your permission.
