"The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive.  It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all." -- Thomas Jefferson, to Abigail Adams, February 22, 1787
Note - The Fair Tax proposal: The opponents of the Fair Tax all make the same error in stating the reasons for their opposition.  They say it would increase the cost of everything about 30%.  WRONG!  It is wrong because you can only come up with a 30% increase if you fail to remove the imbedded taxes before calculating the effects of the Fair Tax.  That's the point.  The Fair Tax would remove all the imbedded taxes which are currently about 22% of the price of everything you buy.  Just keep in mind that anyone who says the fair Tax would increase retail prices about 30% is proving they have no idea of how it would work, or else they have a vested interested in keeping things as they are.
