Skip to comments.My Prediction if the Fairtax is passed
Posted on 09/22/2007 7:18:53 PM PDT by netvictory
Rush Limbaugh accuracy rating is lowered to 10% because he totally missed the biggest political paradigm change in history, which destroyed liberalism in America.
Democrat party fails to elect anyone to Congress because they opposed the Fairtax and kept trying to change it.
Union membership drops to less than 1% because Union leadership runs the Democrat Party.Joe Morecraft III and Walter Williams start a movement to replace the Fairtax with the head tax. No one listens or cares about the head tax, except for Rush Limbaugh who jumps on board. Rush's accuracy rating is lowered another 5 points.
Every Evangelical pastor, conservative leader and Republican candidate claims he was for the Fairtax when the Fairtax wasn't cool.
Christian tithing increases because people now have 22.65% to 34.65% more spending money in their paychecks. Church would then have more resources to spread the Word of God. The beginning of the largest and longest Revival occurs.
Resurgence in Christians Hospitals occurs, driven by the increase in church revenues, Christian thrift, and Evangelist community outreach both at home and abroad. Americans Christians become known worldwide for Christian Medical missions.
The study of Latin and Greek reappears in American as a part of a normal private school K-12 education. A restoration of Puritan values sweeps America as communities began devote their lives to promoting Crown Rights of King Jesus.
The Family meal time is restored because people want to save money, work at home, home school, or sends their children to private neighborhood schools.
The number abortions drop because women and families get more money in their prebate checks for each child in the family.
Pro Life supporters demand the Fairtax prebate starts at the point of conception and the limit on children in a family be removed. Abortion becomes obsolete and is banned.
Pastors under the Fairtax can say anything they want from the pulpit without fear of losing a tax exempt status, including endorsing candidates and political parties.
Membership in the Democrat Party or in a union is consider Satanic by most churches, and preached against in the pulpits of Evangelical Churches.
Almost every Bible Believing Church has a K-12 school they support or run.
Americans learn the value of saving money and demand Congress and state legislators cut spending.
Elected officials now have twice as much time to address the spending side of government because the Fairtax, which has become the Third Rail of politics, can not be touched. The Sixth Amendment becomes obsolete and no longer talked about.
One half of the lobbyist in Washington and in every state capital lose their jobs and go home and look for real jobs because there is no tax code to play with.
Local and state property taxes are eliminated from the American society, because the Fairtax is a broader base sales tax then any current state sales tax, and it can replace both property and income tax systems at the same percentage rate of most current state sales tax.
The United Nations is kicked out of the United States. The League of Fairtax Nations takes over the building. Nations must have a Fairtax and an American Bill of rights to join the new League of Fairtax Nations.
Home schooling and the number of private schools increase because education is consider an investment and not tax under the Fairtax.
The money spent on government schools is rolled into the state prebates checks because Americans began to despise socialism. Government schools become obsolete and Teachers Colleges go out of business across America. John Dewy spins faster in Hell.
Personal debt is no longer the number one marketed product in America. Most people have access to their prebate through a Debt card, and use it only in emergencies, automatically transferring excess money over to a mutual funded each month.
The average person who starts work at 15 years of age can retire by 35 years of age, with or without a college degree. Most college graduates go back to school by age 30 and have two or three different professional careers in their lifetime.
Everyone who wants a job has a job. The economy is booming!
Corporations are moving their headquarters and manufacturing back to the USA!
American products, for the first time in history, are shipped out of the country tax free.
American products, for the first time in nearly 100 years, have equal or better advantage in the American market place. Currently, idiots run the country.
We get to keep 100% of our paycheck! Currently, idiots run the country.
Social Security is on stable footing for the first time in years! It eventually becomes an obsolete government program no longer wanted or needed.
Medicare is paying its own way and is no longer in danger of default! It eventually becomes an obsolete government program no longer wanted or needed.
The Corporate taxes and costs of compliance hidden in both wholesale and retail prices no longer exist! Even with the Fairtax prices are nearly the same as before the Fairtax.
We love our monthly prebate check! The lower income people pay no taxes because of this and the rest of us get a free ride up to the amount of the poverty level!
This means we can save more, faster and have more money available for education, home ownership and retirement!
We dont have to fill out those stupid IRS forms anymore! We save a total of $250 billion or more (about 3% of the GDP).
The government wins too! They get the same amount of revenue they are used to getting! Currently, idiots run the country and want to keep the seesaw tax reform debate going and do not support the Fairtax. The Fairtax is not tax reform, it is tax replacement.
And guess who has to start paying taxes for the first time in their lives? Illegals, prostitutes, drug dealers, the porn industry, criminals, plus all of the other under-the-table transactions that take place! Currently, idiots run the country
The IRS and the tax code is eliminated, except as punishment for those who try and cheat on the Fairtax,. It is later ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court because it is deem cruel and unusually punishment.
Note: Part of the list was stolen off a blog. My apologies to the owner of that blog.
Aren’t the Democrats trying to pass a tax increase they’re calling the “Fairer Tax”? /sarc
What is the over/under for the amount of time before the attacks begin?
I think we should give total war a chance to bring peace. It work in WWII.
Thanks anyway but I’ll bet on Rush’s accuracy.
Me, as well. He has missed on occasion, but has a pretty good track record.
Yes; the site FairTax.org has a good document on the impact of the FairTax on education at http://www.fairtax.org/PDF/TheImpactOfTheFairTaxOnEducation.pdf.
Well .. the fairtax might produce all that stuff .. but I don’t believe it would catch El Rusbo off guard.
This is the misguided ranting of someone, and I’ve known several of the type, who:
1) Are jealous of anyone’s success other than their own
2) Want to be the only one who is “right”
A lot of gold bugs are like this.
Now there's a load of crap!! FairTax does nothing but shift tax liabiliy to the end user and if you think businesses are going to provide wholesale price reductions to consumers you know nothing about business.
3) Probably thinks his church is the only one who’ll get to heaven. I’m guessing KJV is the only Bible allowed.
“FairTax does nothing but shift tax liabiliy to the end user”
The current tax system already taxes the end user, but it taxes the other end: Your income rather than your consumption. In the end, under any tax system, all taxes are paid by individuals.
And then the whole thing crashes when the Democrats and free spending Republicans realize that they still need the income tax after all, in addition fair tax.
When the economy slows, they raise the fair tax to pay for socialized medicine and universal preschool.
As small business represents the largest segment of employment, the economy immediately spirals into the largest recession in modern US history. New home sales tank as the 30% tax immediately improves the value of any used property. Used car lots become the thing to invest in as new cars overnight go up in price by 30%. Employer provided health insurance immediately tanks as that too goes up 30% overnight.
On the plus side, an incredible resurgence in the value of not making disposable products and re-creating the appliance repair market as repairing an item finally once again becomes cheaper than replacing it. Imports drop dramatically as people seek out repairable products, and look more to durability than to price.
Economies in the most liberal of states with the most stringent of requirements for employers tank the hardest, especially in RomneyCareLand where required health insurance no longer has the stick of denial of personal exemption from tax returns - it's cheaper to not worry about the exemption than it is to pay the tax on health care.
And six months in, Congress is faced with an incredible flood of cash, the largest they've ever had, as the ill thought out FairTax rate proves to far exceed government expenditures, leading to even more socialization with a New New Deal supporting liberals to one of the largest landslides in election history as people throw out the people who brought this inanely huge tax rate onto every purchase, everywhere.
When the FairTax is enacted is the day the Stanley Cup finals will be held in Hell.
