JOHN OXENDINE – WORKING FOR THE FAIR TAX

Atlanta, GA – “I want to stand with Congressman John Linder and Neal Boortz and lend my name and leadership to supporting the fair tax. I am very disappointed that the US Congress has not followed the outstanding leadership of Congressman Linder.

Therefore, pursuant of Article V of the U.S. Constitution, I call upon the states to join together in a constitutional convention to adopt the Fair Tax. If you honor me in 2010 by allowing me to serve as Governor of Georgia, I will invite the nation’s Governors to meet and draft a plan to implement legislation in every state to adopt the Fair Tax by Constitutional Amendment.” – May 17, 2008 Georgia GOP Convention, Columbus, GA.

The only way, other than Congress, to bring reality and the Fair Tax together is for the people – the states – to take charge in the form of a Constitutional Convention. Yes, I hope to become the next Governor of Georgia, but I am committed to the cause of the Fair Tax because it is right for America and will help my children by once again making America the greatest manufacturing and economic capitol of the world. Win or lose, I will promote the Fair Tax across Georgia and across America – we will never allow the professional politicians to ignore the American people on this issue.

I understand how difficult the struggle has been to make the Fair Tax a reality. We have both Republicans and Democrats sitting on the fence waiting for someone else to make the first move.

I am honored that our Fair Tax leader in Georgia and DC, Congressman John Linder, the author of the Fair Tax, is supporting this effort. We are going to bring the voices of all Fair Tax supporters to bear on our state legislatures and ask for only one thing: to call a Constitutional Convention to repeal the 16th amendment and pass a Fair Tax amendment!

I give my solemn pledge to all Fair Tax supporters across America and my home state of Georgia; I will endeavor to ensure that we the people take back our country and reclaim our freedoms from an intrusive and corrupted tax code that has been manipulating our behavior since most of us have been born. We will, additionally, reclaim jobs that have moved off shore due to invasive taxes under our current system.

Never again are we going to hear the phrase “Congress will never pass the Fair Tax” because we the people are going to do it!

We need to begin talking with our neighbors, our friends, family, co-workers, our faith leaders and anyone else you can bend an ear to tell them that the power of putting the IRS out of business, once and for all, is in our hands and our voices. We need to use our voices to get our local government officials to pledge their support for this action, and then remind them – we vote.

    Mr Oxendine does not appear to have done his homework. Here is an extract from the 2008 National
    Governors Association Policy Paper regarding taxes:

    “The nation’s Governors oppose a national sales or transactional value-added tax. Such taxes would intrude into a tax area that has traditionally been reserved for and relied on by state and local governments. If enacted, either of these taxes would seriously threaten the ability of state and local governments to maintain their tax base.”

    Perhaps Mr Oxendine plans to change the minds of the other 49 Governors if he gets elected. But at the moment, he only appears naive!
