Fair Share - The Truth About Taxes

Last week Senior Economics Writer for the Wall Street Journal, Stephen Moore published an in depth look at our tax structure, who really pays and how it compares to what the wealthy pay in other countries. There's many conclusions one could come to from that report, but bottom line; something has to change with our tax code.  It's clear that the current system of gimmees, kickbacks, exemptions and tax breaks is anything but simple, flat or fair.  Just look at who really pays.....

First Principles: The Tea Party Focuses GOP Platform on Limited Government

When the Tea Party emerged on the national scene in early 2009, pundits, politicos and the entrenched party establishment questioned whether or not these newly engaged activists would have a lasting affect on the political process.    So, much like we did with our "Tea Party Debt Commission", we went to our over 1.8 million activists and supporters to find out what direction they wanted the GOP to head.  What was important to them when it came to the future of the Republican Party?

Why We Fight For Freedom And Liberty For All, Not Just For Conservatives

I was recently challenged to a Facebook debate with the following question by a liberal relative:

According to Obama, the Government Built Your Business

Barack Obama has yet again taken credit away from individual success and attributed it to the government, sending small business owners one simple message: “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” If this doesn’t further prove that Obama is unfit to lead a country based on the splendor of a free market system, then I’m at a loss as to what will.

US Economy threatened in wake of Obama's Taxmageddon

Obama seems to have one goal in mind this election: creating an even greater gap between Republicans and Democrats. I must admit, he’s doing a great job of it, stoking class warfare and feeding the media and his supporters left-wing lies. Did you hear the GOP is nothing but a bunch of wealthy and corrupt people that have no interest in the good of the lower and middle class citizens?

Issue Analysis

Hostile Takeover

FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe has a terrific new book, "Hostile Takeover". Kibbe describes how the explosion of information choices available to Americans has already changed politics and will continue to do so.  Though not organized this way, there are three broad themes in the book, leading to one inescapable conclusion:Top-down journalism is a dying paradigmTop-down, Keynesian economics is a tool of oppressionTop-down politics is no way to run a free countryThe inescapable conclusion: while there is a lot of work ahead of the advocates for individual freedom and limited government, the decentralization of information has the wind at our backs.

Undeniable Failure: The Progressive Movement

The spread of progressive ideology has plagued this great nation from the time Theodore Roosevelt had introduced progressivism in its rawest form to the United States. Progressive derives from the root word; progress, meaning to drive forward and ever-changing. To apply the word in political context it means to, fundamentally change the norm and past policies. As a general rule a Roosevelt progressive and a current progressive are unchanged. They strive to achieve the same goal and that is to transform and revolutionize the constitution, creating a living breathing entity.

Herman Cain's "999 Plan": The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

So what about Herman Cain's 999 tax plan? Turns out it has some very good aspects -- and some others, not so good. I'd give it two rousing cheers and one bronx cheer. The plan is called "9, 9, 9" because it would replace today's complicated and economically burdensome federal tax code with a simple, three-part system, consisting of a 9% flat tax on individuals, a 9% flat tax on businesses, and a 9% national retail sales tax.* That's it.**

Tell your Representatives to Cosponsor the Capital Gains Inflation Relief Act of 2011

Dear FreedomWorks member, As one of our million-plus FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to cosponsor H.R. 2945, the Capital Gains Inflation Relief Act of 2011. Introduced by Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL), the bill would index the capital gains tax to inflation. By eliminating a tax on inflation, millions of Americans would have more money in their pocket. The Capital Gains Inflation Relief Act would stimulate economic growth and job creation.

Live From Hong Kong: Breaking News from the South China Sea: The free market works! If one is looking for an example to support this fact, than one need not look further than where I am currently writing from, the southern coastline of ... China; on the tiny peninsula of Kowloon and the even smaller island of Hong Kong.
