New Book by Boortz

Texas A&M former student and quasi-Libertarian, Neil Boortz, has a new book out called The Fair Tax Book. I haven't read it yet, but here are some interesting notes from the book.

The progressive income tax is noted as a major plank in Karl Marx’s ten-point plan for a communist society (p. xx–1) as are government schools (1)

The U.S. survived with no income tax for most of its history (10).

Corporations don’t pay taxes; only individuals do (32–37).

The employer’s share of Social Security and Medicare is actually paid by the employee (42, 125).

Corporations move offshore to avoid the high US tax rates (62–67).

America became great due to the freedom of the people rather than due to government programs (176).
