I honestly couldn’t make it all the way through this bucket of crazy but here it is so whatever:

“A letter from a Missouri/Kansas resident – Inspiring!!! — Post it everywhere

Our Civil War has often been called ‘The War between the States’ (likely a more accurate name). I wish to submit that some significance parallels exist between American Revolution, The Civil War and our current endeavor to change the oppressive nature of both State and Federal taxation. In each case history of great significance was and will be made.

I have recently (in private thoughts only) begun to think of the FairTax cause as the War of the States. It seems to me there can be little doubt that the several states have, over the last 90+years, been reduced to impotent extensions of Federal Power used to impose such public policy as Washington deems appropriate to the governance of our population. The list of subjects which clearly illustrate this state of affairs is enormous; seatbelt and toilet water consumption laws are but two of them.

Perhaps, you ask ‘What the devil does this have to do with the FairTax?’ (Ever notice how writers of anything ask questions remarkably compliant with the writer’s purpose?) On that list of subjects which illustrate the impotence of State power I find Income Tax by a wide margin the most offensive, oppressive, and detrimental to the noble intent and notions which our founders embraced and thus led to the formation of our union.

The American Revolution was fought largely over unfair taxation. The Civil War was fought over two issues primarily; slavery and state rights. We are now faced with circumstance that finds us squarely confronted with the condensation of those weighty concepts into a single purpose in the war of ideas. Income Tax, both Federal and State; levied against our citizens creates a unique combination of unfair taxation, near total disregard for states rights, and a condition of economic slavery imposed on every citizen of these United States. I do not suggest, I rather assert the notion that the FairTax is the first and most important step we the people can cause to be implemented which will begin the process of restoring freedom to ourselves and more importantly to our prosperity.

It appears likely, extremely likely, that the great State of Missouri will soon pass through its legislature a state version of the FairTax. The process of full implementation will then require a vote of citizens of Missouri to finalize the establishment of the Missouri FairTax and the repeal of the Missouri State Income Tax. When the Missouri FairTax is gaveled into the history books, may God grant that it will become as well known as the events which occurred at the bridge between Lexington and Concord some 230 years ago. ‘The Shot heard around the world’ is indeed how the beginning of the American Revolution came to be known throughout the world.

While I do not anticipate the wanton slaughter of American citizens will be required to accomplish our goal I do wish to remind each of you that one of our Founders uttered a few words to which virtually all the signers of the Declaration of Independence chose to adhere. ‘Let us this day pledge our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor to the cause for which we have gathered’.

Money is the powder & shot of our war. I pray each of us will pledge as much as reasonably afforded to see to it that the benefits of FairTax are declared publicly and often throughout the State of Missouri first; Kansas second and the balance of this nation as rapidly as Sherman marched to the sea.

Finally please know that it doesn’t make a ‘Tinker’s Damn’ to me whether slavery is implemented by the aggressive use of force subtle manipulation. God willing I’ll be found standing in opposition!

God, what a painful read. I forced myself to get to end, but it wasn’t easy. It’s certainly the worst use of the word condensation I’ve seen in some time.

His fingers should be cut off for this.
