End of the income tax?

I fully behind Billy Joe Maudlin on this.
Joe Farah, Neal Boortz and WorldNet Daily should be taken out back to the
woodshed on this piece.
We The People need to return to true payment mechanism based on the freedom of
individual's to barter value for value, time for time, trust for trust. This
Wizard of Oz, Disney World-like funny-money credit system is THE core root of
all the many problems that are ruining our wonderful world.
Like Nancy Reagan, let's "Just Say NO!" and STOP all this madness and insanity.
Thanks Billy Joe!
Peace and God Bless,

Don't fall for this SCAM!!! It is no more lawful than the income tax!! As long
as this country is under a FIAT (FAKE) money system, with its USURY, there MUST
be a way to skim off the interest.
There are two, and only two, types of economies, Credit and Barter. Under a
barter system, you trade something of intrinsic value for something else of
intrinsic value. For example, you trade the fruit of your labor for something
that you consider of equal value, material goods or gold and silver. Now under a
Credit system, which we are now forced into by HJR 192, June 5, 1933, (attached)
then you are forced to trade something on intrinsic value for Credit and the
debt is DISCHARGED!!
Under this Credit economy, only the principal can be created. Interest (usury)
can not be created so there must be some way to skim off the interest or suffer
HYPERINFLATION where you can't buy a loaf of bread with a truckload of Federal
Consider this, suppose you go to a merchant and purchase 100 (dollars) worth of
merchandise, you go the cash register and check out. The clerk tells you that
"that will be 100 (dollars) and you give the clerk 5ea, 20 unit, Federal Reserve
Notes. You have paid for nothing! You can't pay for anything with an IOU. What
has happened under the credit system is that the merchant receives 100 (dollars)
of CREDIT from the Federal Reserve and the DEBT IS DISCHARGED!!
Federal Reserve Notes are not Dollars!! A dollar is a unit of measurement
exactly like an inch, a quart or a pound.
(a) A silver coin of the United States containing 371.25
grains of silver and 41.25 grains of alloy, that is,
having a total weight of 412.5 grains.
(b) A gold coin of the United States containing 23.22
grains of gold and 2.58 grains of alloy, that is,
having a total weight of 25.8 grains, nine-tenths
Nothing else is a dollar, I don't care what anybody "says"!!
In 1921, under The Independent Treasury Act of 1920, the Treasury of the United
States was TREASONOUSLY turned over to the International Monetary Fund and the
Federal Reserve, both of which are PRIVATE BANKING ORGANIZATIONS UNDER THE
UNITED NATIONS!! Our Congress ABROGATED their authority to "coin and set the
value of money" to these private organizations!!
SINCE THEN THE TOTAL WEALTH OF THIS COUNTRY HAS BEEN PLUNDERED!!!!! DON'T FALL
FOR ANY MORE OF THESE SCAMS!!
End of the income tax?

It's in the hopper. In the last Congress, the number was HR2525. This time, it's
HR25. When I speak of HR25 on my show, the residual phone calls continue for
days. When I talk up HR25 during a banquet speech, the deserts remain uneaten.
HR25 is called the Fair Tax Act of 2003, and its stated purpose is "To promote
freedom, fairness and economic opportunity by repealing the income tax and other
taxes, abolishing the Internal Revenue Service, and enacting a national sales
tax to be administered primarily by the states.
I've been studying and promoting this idea for nearly 17 years. I've debated
each and every possible point and objection, and have almost always drawn the
opposing party to my side. HR25 has 32 cosponsors and absolutely no organized
opposition. This is legislation that would transform our economy and our society
for the better, yet this may well be the first time you've heard of it. It's
time to bring you up to speed.
Here are the highlights. If The Fair Tax Act were to become law, the following
1) The law establishing the federal income tax would be repealed, both for
individuals and for businesses.
2) A constitutional amendment repealing the 16th Amendment would be sent to the
states for ratification.
3) All laws providing for payroll taxes for the funding of Social Security and
Medicare would be repealed.
4) A sales tax would be instituted on the sale of all goods and services at the
retail level. This retail sales tax would replace all payroll and federal income
5) Government funding would remain at present levels, and no changes would be
made to Social Security and Medicare other than the method of funding those
Does the idea sound pretty radical thus far? Stick with me a few hundred more
With the passage of HR25, you would receive 100 percent of your bi-weekly
paycheck. If you make $1,000 a week, your paycheck would be $2,000 every two
weeks. Of that $2,000, you would only pay tax on the money you spend at the
retail level. All savings and investments would be tax free. Any money you spend
at the retail level would carry a 23 percent sales tax.
Yikes! Did that man say 23 percent? Yeah, I know. It sounds awfully high, but
here are some points you need to consider.
First, there are the embedded taxes on every single product or service you
purchase at the retail level. Harvard economists have estimated this embedded
tax to be around 22 percent of the cost of those goods. That 22 percent
represents the payroll taxes and corporate business and income taxes paid by
every manufacturer, shipper, wholesaler, merchandiser and retailer having any
connection whatsoever with the product you have purchased. These taxes are all
added to the cost of consumer goods.
As soon as these taxes vanish, economists agree that competitive market
pressures will immediately cause prices at the retail level to fall. So, we
almost have a wash here. The prices decrease by over 20 percent, and you start
paying a 23 percent sales tax. Remember, though. You brought home 100 percent of
your paycheck, and every dollar you don't spend at the retail level remains
But what about the poor? They're not really paying federal income taxes anyway,
so this big sales tax is really going to hit them hard, right?
Wrong. The Fair Tax Act provides that no family, rich or poor, will pay sales
taxes on the basic necessities of life. The cost of these basic necessities is
set at the federally determined poverty level for various sized families. At the
beginning of every month the head of every household in America will receive a
check, or an electronic credit to their bank account, in an amount equal to the
sales tax they would pay on the basic necessities for their sized family. This
provision is completely neutral as to income, so class warfare political
rhetoric becomes useless.
HR25 has friends in high places inside the Beltway. When briefed on the idea,
Vice President Dick Cheney told Congressman John Linder: "This needs to be put
before the president." Commerce Secretary Don Evans, after being briefed, asked
Linder: "Why haven't you passed this?"
And just why hasn't it passed? Because the idea is so bold that many
politicians, while personally praising the concept, just assume it can't pass.
It can pass, my friends. It can pass if the people of America learn the details
and then let their elected officials know that they want some action. If you
have the slightest interest, just go to the website for Americans for Fair
Taxation. Every detail is covered, every question is answered.
If America is now ready to accept the possibility of the Red Sox winning the
World Series, we can certainly support an idea as daring as the Fair Tax

Woman triumphs over IRS in million-dollar tax case
Mon Aug 11, 2002
A federal jury in Memphis has acquitted a woman charged by the Internal Revenue
Service of conspiring to evade nearly $1 million in taxes.
Jurors on Friday declared FedEx pilot Vernice Kuglin, 58, not guilty of evading
$920,000 in taxes, though the question of how the bill would be paid was left
unsettled following the five-day trial.
"I think it is safe to assume the IRS will attempt civil collection, but she is
not guilty of tax evasion," defense attorney Robert Bernhoft of Milwaukee told
the Commercial Appeal newspaper.
For her part, Kuglin said she felt the verdict was in line. " I feel justified,"
she told the paper.
Kuglin was charged with six counts of tax evasion, for which she could have
received up to 30 years in prison had she been convicted. Government prosecutors
claimed she filed false W-4 forms for the years 1996 through 2001.
A FedEx pilot for nearly 18 years, Kuglin said she had paid taxes like most
other wage earners until about a decade ago, when the paper said she began to
question the tax code.
She said she researched legal documents, court cases and the tax code itself,
but claimed she could not find a specific section that stated she is liable to
pay taxes. Rather, she found a series of contradictions, she told the Appeal.
In 1995 Kuglin wrote to the IRS twice with questions about her obligation to pay
taxes, but said she never received a response.
Federal prosecutors said Kuglin, however, did have an opportunity to sit down
and discuss her obligations with the IRS but failed to do so.
Nevertheless, defense attorney Larry Becraft of Huntsville, Ala., who has a
reputation for defending tax-related cases, said Kuglin decided mandatory
payment of income taxes "did not apply to her." Following Friday's verdict, he
declared the federal tax code "at best is a walking due-process violation."
Barbara Snodgrass, one of the jurors, told the paper the panel chose to acquit
Kuglin because "we all felt that the prosecution didn't prove its case."
Kuglin left open the possibility of future IRS cooperation, without admitting
she owes the agency money.
"I will pay all the taxes for which I am liable," she told the paper.
Kuglin's case echoes complaints about the IRS made by Bob Schulz, a leader in
the "tax honesty" movement.
In March 2002 Schulz, WorldNetDaily reported, sponsored a "Truth in Taxation"
hearing in Washington, D.C., which featured a number of prominent figures in the
The forum was held despite the cancellation of previously scheduled appearances
by Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, R-Md., and officials from the IRS and Justice
Despite the lack of official sanction, Schulz declared the event a success and
said he had "brought to public attention" allegations that the government has
"intentionally and systematically conspired to deprive the American People of
our Constitutional rights. …"
"The hearing was but another step in the people's determination to get to the
truth regarding the fraudulent origin and operation of the Federal Reserve
system, the unconstitutional creation of the Internal Revenue Service and the
illegal operations of our nation's income tax system," he said in a statement
following the forum.
