We have one choice, stand up and take back our State and Federal Legislatures from the hands of the progressive elements that control both major political parties, or discover the true meaning of suffering the insufferable.
The Progressive political class knows well the current abomination implemented as the State and Federal Tax programs have become a morass administered corruptly under the color of law.
Unfortunately the Michigan Fair Tax Promoters have no comprehension to the history of the “income tax”, and other progressive fiscal (tax) programs that were implemented, not to fund the administrative welfare state, but to turn honest hardworking American State Citizens into controllable social resources.
The Michigan Fair Tax itself is predicated on first increasing the cost of small business and large business operations by increasing the “sales and use tax” about 3.75%. This fact alone is detrimental for it decreases the consumption of goods, by increasing the cost to the purchaser. Where in the State or Federal Constitution is the authority for the legislature to tax the private transaction between a seller and a purchaser? What empowers the State or the Federal Legislature to excise private transactions? Contrary to Michigan Fair Tax promoters there was no such thing as a sales tax imposed anywhere in America Prior to July 1, 1921. It was on this date, that the first retail sales tax in America was imposed by a State, and of all places, it was “by God West Virginia.” Ad Valorem Taxes prior to that date, were state and federal legislatively enacted excise taxes which are indirect taxes, imposed upon the manufacturer of goods. The Federal Legislature also imposed duties, and tariffs at the port of entry on goods which was part I of the Tariff Act of October 3, 1913. Part II of that Tariff Act expanded the Corporate Excise Tax of 1909 to include excising the accretion of wealth distributed by Persons, like the Union Pacific Railroad to a statutorily defined individual such as Frank Brushaber.
Retail consumption Taxes are a gross receipts tax, which is defined in Title 4 USCA Chapter 4 § 110c as an “INCOME TAX”. So it is very apparent the Fair Tax Promoters throughout America are promoting an income tax, yet claim it is a sales tax. Welcome to Alice’s Wonderland, where nothing is as others portend it may be.
If is unfortunate that the Fair Tax Promoters here in Michigan and throughout America have failed to comprehend the consequences of targeting a specific class of Americans, who unfortunately listened to a Publically Certified Account, and or dues paying members of the self funded component (State Bar Association) unit of State Government, and secured a statutory charter from the State and or Federal Authorities.
The State and or Federal Legislature may only regulate creatures of their Creation. A state and or federal legislature imposes regulation under its fiscal programs, for regardless of the oblique references to the “commerce cause” championed by the statutory creation of the Federal Legislature, the Supreme Court of the United States, all administrative regulation rides on the back side of fiscal programs.
IN the American Republic, the fundamental Law states clearly:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Why would an American State Citizen elect anyone that promised to continue the tax and spending programs under the false promise of enacting a “Fair Tax”?
Governmental expenditures here in Michigan, just at the State Level consumes 40 plus billion dollars year, since 2004. In fact the State Legislature here in Michigan has increased taxes across the spectrum which empowers an administrative welfare state spending program that knows no bounds.
This increase in the State Sales Tax, as promoted under the Fair Tax promoters here in Michigan, and other similar programs promoted throughout the other 49 State of America, fails to address the systemic fiscal problem; the ever growing permanence of the administrative welfare state’s appointed political bureaucracy. A State’s appointed civil bureaucracy consumes nearly 78 percent of every budgetary tax dollar for working capital, with the residual covering legacy costs such as legislatively enacted pension programs, and the ongoing funding of such administrative operations as the Women and Infant Children Program and the indoctrination centers known as “Public Schools”.
The Federal administrative oversight of the Michigan State Legislature’s enacted Welfare Programs moves under the Income Tax Act of 1935, as Amended in 1939, known as “Social Security”. Here in Michigan the administrative welfare state moves under two public acts dating back from the heady days of the Progressive Program, known as the New Deal, Public Act I of 1936, and Public Act 280 of 1939.
The actuarial cost of these statutorily enacted administrative programs when first implemented in the late 1930’s, were predicated on the known fact that the average American male died in his mid fifties and the average American Woman died in her late fifties, and that the “tax benefit” called social security kicked in at 65 years of Age. Otto Von Bismarck was said to have stated boldly in his day back in 1881, we will provide them with “social security” at 65 if they LIVE THAT LONG!
The fiscal goal of the Fair Tax Promoters here in Michigan and throughout America is to continue funding the ever growing administrative welfare state, by moving the tax burden upon chartered state and federal businesses transacting retails sales to State Citizens. The Fair Tax Promoters here in Michigan and throughout America are promoting a false flag event. This Fair Tax program is not about reform; it is all about the Progressive elements of both National Political Parties moving behind what Vladimir Ulyanov, known to history as Nicolai Lenin, referred to as “useful idiots” to maintain their control of fiscal programs at the State and Federal level.
The Fair Tax Promoters are promoting an opiate, which has been nurtured by the Progressives, for the program as promoted here in Michigan ladles out “tax refunds” to the “consumer” predicated upon a federally determined analysis known as the “Poverty Level”. Why would any one American State Citizen support a fiscal program that is predicated upon poverty? Whatever happened to the fundamental principles of securing Life, liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness? The so called “tax rebates” are predicated upon the mistaken belief, that the State legislature will not continue expanding its tax and spend programs known as the administrative welfare state.
Not one Fair Tax promoter here in Michigan or elsewhere in America addresses the real problem; the progressive usurpation of Constitutional limitations by the State and Federal Legislature to expand Theodore Roosevelt’s original Progressive promotion known to history as the “Square Deal”. We now this day in Michigan and throughout America suffer the insufferable for we, our fathers, and now our Children are being indoctrinated in governmentally controlled “educational centers” to swill the false belief in civil rights. “Civil Rights are a statutorily enacted program of the State and Federal Legislature that moves in defiance to the Fundamental Law of the American Republic.
In order to fund this legal fiction of legislatively created (civil rights) benefits, the Progressives moving within both National Political Parties, need a new name to fund the same ole game, enter the “Fair Tax”!
Why would any one Michigan State Citizen support a program that puts them directly under the statutory thumb of the fiscal will and whim of the State Legislature, which subsequently supports the ever growing presence of the administrative welfare state’s appointed political bureaucracy?
The promoters of the Michigan Fair Tax are enabling this ongoing administrative folly, by changing the name of income taxation, with no concern to correct the underlying political problem, which is the administrative welfare state of National Socialism, which has been the goal of the Progressives since the days of Theodore Roosevelt’s “Square Deal”.
The concept of imposing consumption taxes at the retail level, is unconscionable, and in the private nature of business, an unconstitutional application of State and Federal fiscal policy. Any business that registers with the State or Federal Authority, as a chartered corporate entity will fall within the statutory reach of the tax and spenders squandering our Wealth from under the State and Federal Capitol Dome. Let these creatures of the State and Federal Legislature pay their “fair share” alone, and watch how quickly the administrative welfare state will collapse when it drives its taxpayer to financial ruin.
The closure of the Progressive creation, the administrative welfare state should be the paramount issue, not looking for a new name, the Fair Tax, to fund the same old political morass.
We here in Michigan have a choice, wake up to the folly of the Progressive Political class’s fiscal policies which are moved under the Fair Tax, the Flat Tax, and or the National Sales Tax promotions, or continue to suffer the insufferable systemic fraud of the administrative welfare state clothed comfortably under the color of Constitutional law.
What few American State Citizens understand is the Pollack Decision of 1895 stated taxes imposed upon rights to property have to be apportioned. The Brushaber Decision of 1916 acknowledged that the “16th Amendment did not change, expand, or in any way alter the constitutional limitation imposed upon the United States of America in Congress Assembled when imposing taxes directly upon the property of American State Citizens. Read Article I § 3, and Article I § 9(4).
So after over 110 years of the Progressive Political Class’s systemic fraud imposed as the administrative welfare state, here we stand today, where unfortunately, there are American State Citizens, here in Michigan and throughout our Great Republic whose collective dysfunctional literacy to the history of the American Republic encourages them to promote a new name for funding the systemic fraud of the State and Federal Government’s fiscal policies.
We as Michigan State Citizens, along with our fellow State Citizens in the other 49 Sovereign and Independent States of the American Republic have a duty to ourselves and our progeny to stand up against this false flag promotion presented as the Fair Tax, by helping those deceived promoters to awaken to the Constitutional Fact, that our State and Federal legislature are creatures of Constitutional limitation, not ever expanding fiscal black holes of statutory corruption.
"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands, which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."
- Samuel Adams, speech at the Philadelphia
State House, August 1, 1776
