Reagan is one of my favorite columnists. His latest kicks butt!
My father, Ronald Reagan, battled successfully to simplify the tax code but his work has been largely undone. The arrogance of those who use the tax code to manipulate citizen behavior and Congressional ambitions for personal advancement have again corrupted the already destructive income tax system. It will fall to the American people to once again reject unfair taxation that favors the mighty at the expense of the public.
These 237 years after the Boston Tea Party and 31 years after the tax revolt that contributed to the election of my father as President, America is again rejecting “taxation without representation” and the rule of new American aristocrats. This time, the digital world is joining the physical world so even home-bound Americans can voice their dissatisfaction with our corrupted tax system. With a new online technology that brings the future to Uncle Sam, a hundred thousand people have already chosen graphic avatars to begin an online tax revolt march on Washington. Arriving April 15th, hundreds of thousands of Americans will digitally join those who can afford the time and expense of physically traveling to Washington for what may be the most powerful tax protest since Boston Harbor. Please Read It All.
Using the new media for a online march combined with a physical march on Washington DC is a cool idea. If you cant march in person you can sign up to march online at The Online Tax Revolt. This is some of Reagan's best work. Will it matter? I think thousands marching will make a statement. I can only hope it makes a difference. I signed up and you should too. What do we have to lose...Everything.
