A New Equal Rights Amendment
Proposed by AFR’s Coalition to Amend the Constitution

afr_homeThe founding principle of America is that all citizens possess “equal rights under the law.” Our whole concept of rights is based upon their being equal for everyone. This was the guiding star of justice that spawned America and which sustained her through the first 125 years of her existence. In 1913, however, there took place a most shameful default on this concept of “equal rights” with adoption of the 16th Amendment, which allowed Congress to enact an income tax with unequal (i.e., progressive) rates. This travesty must be challenged, and the way to do it is with a “New Equal Rights Amendment” to the Constitution. AFR is launching the 28th Amendment that will, once and for all, end tax tyranny and the runaway freight train of government growth in America. To read more about this exciting cause, CLICK HERE

Ending the Income Tax and the IRS

Nelson Hultberg

 
Imagine for a moment America without an income tax. No more tedious record keeping of all our expenses. No more April 15th deadlines. No more insufferable complexity and exasperating forms. It would no longer be government’s business how much money we earn and what we do with it. Such a reform would dramatically change the lives of every one of us for the better. Could such a spectacular reform actually be brought about? Yes, it certainly can. AFR’s New Equal Rights Amendment for taxes is the first step…read more

Thomas Sowell  /  12.29.2015
How shall we remember 2015? Or shall we try to forget it? It is always hard to know when a turning point has been reached, and usually it is long afterwards before we recognize it. However, if 2015 has been a turning point, it may well have marked a turn in a downward direction for America….read more
