My email just bounced so Iím sending by snail mail (much faster in this case).
Please consider the political implications of the FairTax. Itís much upstream of what you advocateÖ but will eventually have an impact (both powerful and sustainable).
Most importantly itís largely immune to market pressures that effectively force governments to lower the income tax rate. Consequently it makes social democracy economically competitive & therefore viable.
This seems the most effective blow that can be dealt to the jungle capitalism that breeds the social callousness that currently makes the wrong politicians successful.
I hope and feel Iím not wasting your time with this.
