Last evening, I had the pleasure of meeting Neal Boortz. He was at a local Borders Bookstore, signing copies of his new book, "The FairTax Book". I realized that we had not yet said anything about this great book on either our webzine or on this blog. Well, that is being remedied.
I want to encourage our readers to buy a copy of "The FairTax Book", by Neal Boortz and John Linder and read it through. It clearly lays out the case for replacing the income tax with a National Retail Sales Tax. For the record, this book went to the top of the New York Times Bestseller List in its first full week of publication and stayed there in its second week.
If you don't know what the FairTax is, then this book will explain it. If you do know what the FairTax is, you should read it anyway, because there is even some confusion among some of its supporters, about exactly how the FairTax works and how US taxpayers benefit. Even if you already know all about it, this book lays it out so clearly that it will make you a better advocate.
Then, after you have read it and understand it, fire up your email and telephone and start leaning on your representative and senators, to co-sponsor the FairTax, if they have not already done so. The next thing to do, is to loan your copy of this book to a friend. Pass it around. The more people who get the chance to read it, the more people there will be contacting their congresscritters and asking them to co-sponsor the FairTax.
The huge popularity of this book proves that this is a battle that we can win.
For more information on why the FairTax is a battle that we must win, see the articles in the Tax & Economy section, on the Action America web site. Pay particular attention to the article, "The Economy Bomb - Ticking Down Faster".
