WE BELIEVED IT TOO!!




  _____________________________

"PLEASE  PASS FAIRTAX

SO WE CAN LAUGH AT YOU
FOR 100 YEARS."

__________________________

Sadly -- Fairtax won't pass. It's not supposed to. It's supposed to fool stupid people -- and it fooled us for a while. 

__________________________


YES IT SOUNDED GREAT
WE GET THAT 


_____________________________

YES IT SEEMED TO HAVE
22 MILLION DOLLARS OF RESEARCH


WE BELIEVED THAT, TOO 




_____________________________

MEN OF GOD VOUCHED FOR IT 
IN FRONT OF A BIG US FLAG 




NO WAY ON EARTH  IT WOULD BE  A FRAUD


RIGHT? NO FLIPPIN WAY!


_____________________________

Uh - actually Fairtax is a fraud.   Call it a political hustle if you want, but it's a fraud.

_____________________________


We offer 50,000 dollars if you can prove otherwise -- specifically, just show one page of that 22 million dollars of research, proving this "very simple" personal retail sales tax will replace all other fed taxes, and we will give you $ 50,000.

Remember - we assumed that research existed -- and we looked for it. What we found was not research but quite the opposite -- Orwellian BS by lying bastards.  That's not research.

And it didn't cost 22 million dollars. 

This is a legal offer - check with your attorney.  

Simple retail sales tax.    Neal Boortz said "a very very simple" personal retail sales tax. You pay at the cash register.   And get a prebate.  And get huge increase in take home pay. 


 And, and, and.. it sounded soo good.




SO NATURALLY  -- WE LOVED IT. 



Boortz told us ---

  1. Completely untaxes the poor!
  2. 50 % increase in take home pay!
  3. Transparent!
  4. 22 million dollars of research!
  5. Eighty economist studied it, and approved!



_______________________________



We expose it a tad more bluntly.



"They told us it was simple
 personal retail sales tax"


Then we read the fine print -- and asked questions.

Increase in take home pay? 

 Wrong.   No one gets an increase in take home pay from this fraud, because it's not even a tax code, it's political hustle by lying bastards. 

Untaxes the poor? 


 Not so-- the poor are taxed impossibly high, for example Medicare patient with cancer could be taxed 35,000 dollars for her "consumption" of surgery and chemo, even though Medicare pays the hospital  bill. 

Transparent?

Not so  As you will see Fairtax has  massive other and impossible taxes, in the fine print, to make their fraudulent math add up. That's the opposite of transparent.

22 million dollars of research



Not so  They  have never shown any research about a simple personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes, because that's not what Fairtax even is. Plus, their boooshit double talk by their own public relations firm is the opposite of research, no matter how much the lying bastards try to dress it up as such.
_______________________________



Fairtax fraud could not get more basic.

They lie about what they tax.  Not once, not ever, not in 15 years, not in any speech, not in any book, not in any video, have they told you candidly what they tax, to make their math work on paper.

Not once.

In fact, 60% or more of Fairtax projected revenue is from impossible nonsense "other taxes"  that are not only impossible to collect, but have nothing to do with personal retail sales. 






ONE EXAMPLE 

300 BILLION DOLLAR ADVANCE TAX
TIP OF ICEBERG


Look real, real close -- at the footnotes, on offline document few people even see.   One "tiny example"

  Here is a 300 billion dollar tax on capital investments.  If your city builds a 60 million dollar court court house -- your city has to pay -- in advance -- almost 15 million dollars as a tax.

This is not deducted from the 60 million, this is 15million MORE.  So the court house actually costs almost 75 million.


How the hell is that a personal retail sales tax??

And this is not just on capital expenditures -- try ALL operational expenditures, all wage and pension expenditures, those too, are taxed. More correctly stated -- all city county and states, must pay a 23% tax on all wage, pension, capital investment and operational expenditures.

Retail sales tax your ass. Those lying sneaky bastards. 

This is just tip of iceberg-- most of Fairatx has nothing to do with retail sales taxes.

Not just hidden - -but impossible.



_________________________




BUT  IT'S BULLSHIT
 They left out a "few details"

Like 2 trillion dollar of other Fairtax taxes


These "other taxes" are not just a small part of Fairtax -- these "other" taxes are by far the biggest part of Fairtax. 

Only 40% of Fairtax revenue is from the personal retail sales tax.   Sixty percent of their projected revenue is not from retail sales at all!

Yet they told us, it was a very very simple retail sales tax.  Why lie about that?  


WE NEED A NEW TAX CODE


MASSIVE TAXES ON CAPITAL INVESTMENTS  - IN ADVANCE

AND ITS ONLY IN A FOOTNOTE..



 Fairtax sounded great -- nothing sounded better.  We loved it. Turns out, it's not even a tax code.  Nor is there research.

If you can find ONE PAGE of that 22 million dollars of  research, about a very simple personal retail sales tax of 23%, that replaces all other fed taxes, we will give you 50,000 dollars. 

 It might seem like it -- but look closely at the "research" -- see below.   WE even offer this 50K to the people who Boortz said DID the 22 million in  research.  They can't show one page of it, either, cause there is none.

See why below.

1) There is no research


EXPOSED AS BOOOSHIT YEARS AGO


Fairtax booooshit  was exposed years ago -- politely, and in academic terms, by President Bush Tax Advisory Panel.   Too polite -- but they exposed it, much for the same reasons we do --it's nonsense.    And there is no research.




POLITICAL THEATER  OR  TAX CODE?

Bush Tax Panel -- headed by William Gale, PhD Stanford -- did not have to look that hard for the fraud.  Just read all the fine print, all the "assumptions" and math "calculations" in the clever bullshit put out by Beacon Hill.

To make their math work, on paper, the lying bastards just "pretended" or "assumed"  they would collect over 2 trillion dollars in other taxes -- other than personal retail sales tax.

The Tax Panel found no research -- not on a simple retail sales tax, and no research anyway.  What they found was  double talk boooshit by Beacon Hill, which was not only not research, it was NOT about a simple personal retail sales tax.



How the hell are 2  trillion dollars of "other taxes"  -- that have nothing to do with retail sales -- a "simple personal retail sales tax."?

Lying about your hustle in some goofy deceptive fine print tricks is NOT research.  Try to grasp that. 


_____________________________

We need a new tax code -- but Fairtax is not it. It's political theater by lying bastards, or if that's too harsh, by hustlers. 


THE RESEARCH DID IT --

22 million dollars of "extensive" research. WOW.   Not only can't it be a fraud -- it has to be real, right?   And it's not some crazy bullshitter in a corner throwing lies to stupid people.

No way someone lies about research!!   

There is research right? A researcher, someone who did the research -- an office, a box, a desk, a report, some data.  22 million dollars of research, so why haven't they shown it?

Oh -you think they DID show it?  No.  They do have some double talk BS by their own public relations firm -- we show that.   But that's not research, and it's not about a simple retail sales tax.
  
     We offer $ 50,000 dollars for anyone who can find ONE page of that 22 million dollars of research, about this very simple personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes.  Just one page -- shouldnt be hard, right?  

Go on -- this is a legal offer. Get your attorney on the phone.   We have offered this for years -- but since there is no such "research" our 50K is pretty safe. 




Give Fairtax lying bastards credit -- in some document somewhere, in some footnote, some double reverse Orwellian boooshit definition -- they insert these huge other taxes.



But the lying bastards tell you
1) that's research, and
2) that's a simple retail sales tax. 

We first offered this 50K to Neal Boortz to give to any charity he wants.  He ran from this offer --so we offer it  to anyone.  It's not a bullshit offer -- the Fairtax claim of 22 million in research is bullshit.  No such research exists, much less 22 million dollars worth. Our offer really exists.  You can sue us for 50K if you find 22 million dollars of research about this very very simple personal retail sales tax.  We can't sue the lying bastards at Fairtax, because lying to stupid people in politics is not against the law, or even considered a fraud in USA. 

The point is, there is no research about Fairtax plan to replace all other fed taxes with a 23% retail sales tax.None. And there sure as hell isn't 22 million dollars worth.


ONLY PROBLEM -- WHAT TO DO WITH THE MONEY


Neal Boortz said -- with a straight face -- the "only problem will be where to put the money.   Seriously -- Fairtax would make the country rich, the "economic powerhouse of the world".  So much wealth, so great, etc etc.

Great sounding stuff -- especially when you realize, the lying bastards have no research. 



Fairtax would bring is so much money that we would not need to have Social Security taxes, or Medicare. Balance the budget -- no problem.  An average 50% more take home pay -- the list of great things were endless!

 And all this was researched!

ONE LITTLE PROBLEM -- well two.

1) Fairtax lied about the research - there is none.

2) Fairtax is not a real tax code -- it's political theater, aka BS.

300 WORDS IN FINE PRINT TRICKS
__________________________



WERE IS THAT RESEARCH?

William Gale, chairman of Bush Tax Advisory Panel, said in private "they lie a lot" about Fairtax hustlers.  But in the report -- all academic and polite -- Gale showed the massive other taxes in Fairtax. He didn't call them liars -- we do, however.  We define liars as those who pretend to have a very very simple retail sales tax, that's researched, when they have nothing of the sort, and lied about the research. 

Without these massive other taxes, Gale and his team showed the actual tax rate on retail sales would need to be 89%.  

Wait till you see what Fairtax taxes to make their math work.  Hint -- they tax much more than personal retail sales. 




 _______________________




In fact, most of Fairtax revenue projections have nothing to do with retail sales tax! 

Wages - pensions -- operational expenditures: taxed.

Capital investment expenditures -- taxed in advance.

KEOKUK -- PAY UP 

Did you know capital investment expenditures are taxed -- in advance?  All city county and state capital expenditures are taxed.  So when Keokuk Iowa builds a new court house for 40 million, FIRST they have to pay 9.5 million as a Fairtax.   The court house still cost 40 million, AND NOW, the 9.5 million dollar tax.

How the HELL are wage and pension expenditures  a personal retail sales tax?

It's not.  Do you understand this -- Fairtax lying bastards TOLD us it was a very very simple personal retail sales tax, but in the fine print, the lying bastards put massive other (and impossible) taxes.

That's what President Bush Tax Panel found -- because it's in the Fairtax math, and fine print.  This is the kind of absurd bullshit Fairtax uses to make their math add up. 


Here is the footnote -- yes FOOTNOTE -- in Fairtax document about that "capital expenditure tax"  in advance.   







 Chicago IL -- for example -- if they replace the 4 billion dollar sewer system, would owe almost 1 billion in advance as a tax. 

 THIS IS A SEPARATE TAX

NOT A RETAIL TAX -- IT'S PAID SEPARATELY

 No, it's not paid at the cash register.  And no it's not a retail sales tax.  Fairtax had their suckers mezmerized by images and examples of paying a tax at the cash registor. Lying bastards did this on purpose.  

All their examples were about retail sales -- their narrative was about retail sales., Buy a coat, buy a pizza, buy lunch.

Not one fucking word about 400 million dollar wage expenditure tax on New York City.   Not one fucking word about the 14 billion dollar tax on Texas state legislature for operational and capital investment expenditures.


Remember -- as President Bush Tax Panel found -- this is how Fairtax math adds up, these lunatic bullshit other taxes.  





THE MOST IMPORTANT 33 WORDS IN FAIRTAX  300 WORD HUSTLE









 If you gave these guys any money, you can sue them to get it back. Really. It's that fraudulent. 

Notice, below in their "tax base,"  have all personal and governmental  "consumption expenditures".  


SO they do NOT just tax retail sales.  Retail sales are only a small part of it.



For example, if you live in Keokuk Iowa, your little city would owe over 15 million dollars in wage, pension and operational expenditure taxes!!

And Fairtax clever fine print "assumes" your city will raise taxes to pay that.

Keokuk is in Lee County Iowa.  Lee county would owe over 18 million dollars in wage, pension and operational expenditure taxes.  

Iowa state government itself -- all city county and states -- would owe over 1 billion in wage pension and operational expenditure taxes.



So a guy in Keokuk would owe massive taxes himself, PLUS all city county and state taxes would skyrocket.

But see how clever these lying bastards were -- they said it, in online docs you never saw, an they said it like lying bastards do -- deceptively.





Like the tax on all "consumption" of  cancer surgery, chemotherapy, and nursing home care -- even when paid BY MEDICARE, or MEDICAID  -- the person "using or consuming" any good or service is liable for 23%.

Yes -- you thought the person PAYING for some retail sale is liable.  Well, yes, but Fairtax math, as you will see, is based on taxing all consumption, (which is much much more than retail sales).




 Yes, they tax retail sales -- but that's only a small part of what they tax, to make the math work, on paper.

 Most of Fairtax taxes are taxes on city county and state "expenditures"  and on Medicare and Medicaid recipients.  The retail part of Fairtax is the "small" part of it.




  Gale didn't  say in public -- "these lying bastards have massive impossible taxes in the fine print, to make the math work".  

Gale was too polite. We aren't.  In private he did say they lied a lot. We say it in public, and put 50K up, if anyone can show one page of that research, as described. 

By the way, Gale didn't find any research either, for the same reason we didn't. Hiding goofy bullshit in your double talk, is not research, it's exactly the opposite of research.

______________________________________________


 SO  while Fairtax might SOUND great, it's not even a tax code.  They know city county and states can not, and will not, pay these massive taxes -- read closely, Fairtax never says they will pay, it says they ASSUME they will pay.   But Fairtax never clearly tells them, it's in the double talk BS.  

Think New York City is just going to mail in several billion dollars, that no one told them about?   Think your city  and county and state will pay these huge taxes that these lying bastards hid in a few Orwellian made up bullshit double talk "assumptions"?

Think that's how it works? If so, you are a dumb ass, and a perfect Fairtax Cult Monkey.

$50,000 OFFER 

PROVE FAIRTAX IS NOT A FRAUD BY LYING BASTARDS -- GET 50K. 

And we put up 50,000 dollars, really, if you can prove otherwise.  

To prove Fairtax is not a fraud by lying bastards, all you have to do is show ONE PAGE of that 22 million dollars in research they claim proves this "very very simple" personal retail sales tax is a legit tax plan, that would replace all other fed taxes.

__


How  can something that sounds SO great be a fraud?   

 Not that hard--- use fine print tricks. We thought  Neal was telling the truth about Fairtax. 


Fairtax hustlers fooled us, mostly because they claimed 22 million dollars of research.  Who would lie about  research?  

____________________

WHY BEACON HILL DOCS
ARE NOT RESEARCH
______________________


At first, Boortz lied to us, and claimed Dale Jorgenson of Harvard did the "extensive research"  Fair Tax is based on . Bullshit -- Jorgenson published no such research, and is against Fairtax -- see below.

So what "Research" is Boortz and others talking about?  There is no research.   Beacon Hill documents -- Beacon Hill is PAID to put out BS for Fairtax -- are not research, because hiding goofy deceptive fine print in your footnotes and assumptions is the opposite of research.

This is research defined, below.  Notice it does NOT define research as hiding goofy BS in your inane double talk to fool stupid people. 

Too complicated? Need time? 

  
But even more -- even if you call the deceptive BS by Beacon Hill "research" (it's not) -- those documents are NOT about a very simple personal retail sales tax.  In those documents are the massive other taxes, in addition to, on top of, and paid separately from, that retail sales tax.

We mean actual research -- not bullshit fraud in your fine print, by your own public relations firm (Beacon Hill).   Where is the 22 million in research?


Hell -- just show one page!



"So we believed Fairtax -- loved it.  Till we saw a few issues, and asked some questions, and got bullshit answers."






And we DO need a new tax code.   

 The reason we never get one, however, is, surprisingly, lying bastards like Huckabee and Neal Boortz, who fool stupid people with bullshit. Or Heritage, or CATO. They lie too, but Heritage and Cato are smart enough not to write it all down in ""legislation" and documents  that others can read.

Fairtax is a good example of bullshit -- and they wrote their bullshit down, they used double talk and lies, but they wrote it down, and we show you the BS, and remember, the BS other taxes is how their math "adds up".

_______________________________________




We show you the "fine print tricks".  Like this seemingly innocuous statement -- but notice, all CONSUMPTION is taxed, without exception.   

TAX BASE = WHAT THEY TAX 

 Fairtax avoids honest statements, like "We tax this.." 

 If they only taxed retail sales, their tax base would be only retail sales. 

Yes, retail sales is in the tax base, but that's just the start of it.




About 1 Trillion dollars of Fairtaxes  are taxes on your city, your count, and your state, that would drastically raise all those taxes.  That's right -- your city would owe (New York City for example,) over 1 billion dollars in wage, pension, and capital expenditure taxes -- because  Fairtax lying bastards put a few words in their fine print (we show you the words)  about these taxes, then PRETENDED  (yes pretend is the right word)   they would actually collect this trillion dollars from city county and states, when they added up their fraudulent "math".









So it's not that they only put this is in the fine print -- all the fine print tricks we show you , the lying bastards included so they could "pretend" their math adds up.

Remember that -- these lying bastards told us it was a very very simple retail sales tax, when they knew the entire time, most of Fairtax has nothing to do with retail sales!

At least, theoretically, all city county and states could double their tax rates -- remember, drastically higher city county and state taxes are IN THEIR OWN FINE PRINT --

But can cancer victims, heart surgery patients, all pay massive "consumption  taxes" too?  HELL no -- and Fairtax knows that.   Fairtax lying bastards are not stupid -- they are lying bastards, there is a difference.  Yet Fairtax hustlers had to include all this "other consumption" in their "tax base"  for their fraudulent math to add up.
