Time for T.E.A. and a Fair Tax

by Chuck Norris

Tea time anyone? I hope you've joined one of the thousands of T.E.A. (Taxed Enough Already) parties or Fair Tax rallies meeting across the country on April 15 to protest the outrageous government spending, the deepening of our national debt and the subsequent taxes that are forthcoming because of it. This is a nonpartisan time to rally around like-minded citizens and declare that we're tired of the same old political rhetoric, and we want a better way.

I personally encourage everyone to voice to their representatives that we need to return to a taxation system similar to that established by our founders. They did not penalize productivity through taxes the way we do today. They had no Internal Revenue Service. They believed in minimal taxation.

* They did not pay income taxes, which were prohibited by the Constitution;

* They did not pay export taxes, which were also prohibited by the Constitution;

* But they did tax imports. The founders believed in free trade within our own borders and a system of tariffs on imported goods.
