The Enactment of the Fair Tax Plan - The First Twenty Years

Mar 2, 2008
This is a fictional work of mine on what I think United States will look like after the first twenty years that the Fair Tax Plan has become law.

It's been twenty years since Congress enacted the Fair Tax and abolished the 16th Amendment. All historians agree that this was without a doubt the most significant and extraordinary law ever enacted by our government since the Abolishment of Slavery. Even though it had its initial teething stage, the Fair Tax Act has proven to be the single most dramatic point in American history where our failing global economic status was turned around to make this great country the world's foremost example of fiscal prosperity.

A prosperity that not only transposed the United States into the world's corporate and industrial magnet but also trickled across the oceans to be replicated by other countries like, France, England, Australia, and Russia. Rather, after the Fair Tax was enacted, America quickly repositioned itself back into the forefront of global industrial dominance.

So why did the Fair Tax take so long to get enacted? The short answer would be for me to write, demagoguery. However, it soon became evident that the real answers were more or less political corruption, the perpetuation of misrepresentations by the mainstream media and foreign governmental clandestine influences.

In the beginning the Fair Tax Plan was commonly referred to as a, "Grassroots Organization" trying to get the IRS abrogated. As we all know now, that wasn't just the main goal of the Fair Tax supporters. The primary cause of those "grassroots" members was to take control of our own income and through our own actions, voluntarily fund the United States and stop the government from dictating our lives while perpetuating their individual political causes with and by the threat of police powers and incarceration.

When the Fair Tax "grassroots organization" became a major political movement most politicians began to see that their livelihood was starting to be endangered. They quickly realized that the lobbyist who they had engaged in "business" with in the past was not going to help them once they got voted out of office. Even though the partisan media tried to distort the principles and beneficial repercussions of the Fair Tax, the people sought the truth and learned on their own what was so easy to grasp.

All of the websites and the books provided enough evidence of what the Fair Tax would do to empower America and her people. With all this knowledge in hand the grassroots became a massive monolithic political force that even the lobbyist could not overcome. Most politicians were forced into supporting the Act or found themselves battling for their seats in each coming election. Those who survived quickly came on board. Those who failed disappeared from the public eye along with their lobbyist brethren.

Perhaps the most influential lobbyist entities that were eliminated by the people through elections were those from foreign countries who had infiltrated themselves inside the political Washington crowd. As an example, the Chinese lobbying "agents" found that even our more questionable politicians had to get onboard with the Fair Tax or be dumped out of office. That is mainly why the Chinese economy is in so much trouble today. They have waged and lost an economic war against the United States and are now faced with having to reign in their tumultuous people.

The first year after the Fair Tax became law and the Income Tax was repealed we witnessed a somewhat early stumbling among American businesses. Some wrongfully felt that they could incorporate the 30% loss of the embedded manufacturing tax into a new line item for profits by selling at their same pre-Fair Tax rates and adding the new 23% consumption tax to their prices. After their sudden loss of sales and profits to their competitors who didn't get greedy, they quickly realized the folly of that venture.

It is argued that the best result during the first year of enactment was what the Fair Tax did to help the lower income people and the elderly. Remember how quickly the lower income people started to benefit from having more income to live with? Once they started receiving all of their income and the monthly pre-bates the "poor" suddenly found that they could afford the things they wanted; as well as find newer and better paying jobs everywhere across the country.

Once the elderly started receiving their untaxed social security checks and monthly pre-bates they too found that they could live well and actually save money each month. Most found that they were no longer strapped unto poverty by the government. That is because all of their investments, their benefits and their income started experiencing tax free growth instead of shriveling away.

I argue that the primary benefit to the United States was the incredible growth of our economy that resulted from the Fair Tax. Remember that in the first year alone sixteen American businesses relocated their manufacturing plants back to the United States. Those are what are referred to as the "Sweet Sixteen". Sweet because they showed all other American companies that had relocated overseas that America was back at the front of profitable global industrial domination.

Now after twenty years all the American companies that had once escaped our prior persecuting tax enthralled government and its debatable corporate envy, have returned to America. The resulting numbers of new jobs created by these companies were unprecedented in our history. In fact, now that over 2,500 other foreign companies have relocated here the growth of the American economy has resulted in our government's growing 5 trillion dollar surplus. The good problem here is trying to fill the millions of available jobs which are annually left untaken. That is why unemployment is becoming a lost word in the English language.

In closing, let me explain why I call the last two decades as the, "Decades of More". Since the enactment of the Fair Tax Act the United States people have gotten more money, more savings, more jobs, and more joy out of life than at any other time in American history.
