One of the comments in my New Year's Day blog entry was about how horrible and unfair the "Fair Tax" would be to the poor and middle class, and how it would only benefit the wealthy.
As I understand the "Fair Tax", I have to agree with the person who posted the comment.
The matter that needs to be clarified is that the "Fair Tax" is Mike Huckabee's scam .. er.. plan, not Ron Paul's, who was the topic of the blog entry. Please try to stay on topic, people.
Here are the two compared, in their own words. 2m:23s. Research. You have fewer and fewer excuses to rely on rumor and no excuses to make up your own. See? I don't have to make up bad things about Tax-Hike-Mike. He's quite odious on his own.
Note near the end of the video where the Huckster talks about how to "help condition peoples behavior" and then codifying into law the "new behavioral norm". Then again, some people f e e l safer being told what to do & what to
think feel. They would be happy (for awhile) under (the thumb of) a President Goebbels .. er.. Huckabee. Oh, Big Brother, Where art thou?
