Ending “Progressive Tax Rates” in America
The 28th Amendment to the Constitution

afr_homeThe key to ending the income tax lies in ending “progressive rates,” which will generate the necessary desire among the people to end the tax itself. This is the crucial first step that must be taken. The income tax cannot be abolished in one clean swoop as most libertarians advocate. This is the BIG MISTAKE that all tax reform organizations have been making for 50 years. The people must be motivated first to demand abolition. The great 19th century author, Victor Hugo, said “there is nothing more powerful in history than an idea whose time has come.” The time has definitely come to get rid of the income tax. Americans are fed up with it, and will be willing to abolish it, but only if shown how to do so and why. Our 28th Amendment plan does precisely that.

Famous Patriots on Taxation and “Equal Rates”

If we are to resurect the principles of constitutional control over taxation [we must] beathe life back into…the UNIFORMITY clause. There should be…no more discrimination in taxation. No more “odious arbitrariness.” No more tax immunities for some or confiscatory rates for others. Whatever the rates, whatever the tax, it should be the same for all.

I guess it’s like trying to put through the flat tax, which is probably my favorite one of all…. if we did pass it, all of a sudden, what do you have?

We need true tax reform to begin restoring for our children the American Dream that wealth is denied to no one, that each individual has the right to fly as high as his strength and ability will take him.
