. of Illinois sent the following email that Snopes
has researched as TRUE
Suggestion to the US government: Get rid of income tax, replace it with a flat rate consumption tax where NO one gets a free ride and everyone pays according to what they can spend. It’s called FairTax
and it has been on the books as a bill presentation since 2002. I know the government is slow, unless IRS
is after you – but citizens of America, don’t ask, insist that the 16th
Amendment be repealed and replaced with the FairTax system! Presently the government, in charge of our education system, is ramming Spanish down our throats instead of insisting that English be the official language – soon they will be insisting that Chinese be a preferred (only one available, thus no choice – being as colleges require a minimum of two years foreign language).
Why don’t they just give our country to the highest bidder?
My deepest sympathy to the fellow Americans in Waukesha, Wisconsin. Maybe this is an incentive to start making the government pay attention to the constitutional meaning of limited government and the fair tax system — and be more careful who you vote for. Here is the email entry received:
General Electric Keep your eye on Waukesha, Wisconsin……Their biggest employer just moved out.
Thanks Jeff, you’re a “real” American….give Barack our Best !!
General Electric is planning to move its 115-year-old X-ray division from Waukesha, Wis., to Beijing. In addition to moving the headquarters, the company will invest $2 billion in China and train more than 65 engineers and create six research centers. This is the same GE that made $5.1 billion in the United States last year. but paid no taxes-the same company that employs more people overseas than it does in the united States.
So let me get this straight. President Obama appointed GE Chairman Jeff Immelt to head his commission on job creation (job czar). Immelt is supposed to help create jobs. I guess the President forgot to tell him in which country he was supposed to be creating those jobs.
If this doesn’t show you the total lack of leadership of this President, I don’t know what does. Please pass this information to others and think about it before you buy a GE product.
…or vote for Obama again.________As a side interest …
