    Who are the NERD fund donors Mr Snyder?

    Raise the curtain.

    Ron Paul, a tax hiker?

    I've always found Paulinians an interesting lot to watch drift from the fledgling Libertarian Party that accomplishes basically what the Detroit Lions do every season in the NFL when they "Restore the Snore" to Paulinians trying to get some traction in the Republican Party, bringing with them their Liberal social ills to the GOP.  Fiscally speaking, I'm on board with Dr. Paul.

    An income tax is the most degrading and totalitarian of all possible taxes. Its implementation wrongly suggests that the government owns the lives and labor of the citizens it is supposed to represent. Tellingly, "a heavy progressive or graduated income tax" is Plank #2 of the Communist Manifesto, which was written by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels and first published in 1848.

    To provide funding for the federal government, Ron Paul supports excise taxes, non-protectionist tariffs, massive cuts in spending.


    ...Dr. Paul is an advocate of the FAIR Tax.

    Clearly stated @ 1:06: "But if you put the sales tax on now and replaced the income tax I'd be terrified they'd give us both. You know, fresh income. But the main thing is is you gotta cut spending. Spending is the issue."

    Absolutely right.  Spending is the issue.  And yes, Rep. Paul took a stand with his fellow Republicans in the House against what Nancy Pelosi calls "GIVING $780 billion to the people".  Great, right? Weeeeeeeelllllll....

    Exactly four hours later at 3:55 PM the good "Dr. No" voted with "Pelosi, Pelosi Galore" for a tax increase and increased government spending.

    Airport and Airway Extension Act of 2010, Part III - Amends the Internal Revenue Code to extend through December 31, 2010: (1) increased excise taxes on aviation fuels and the excise tax on air transportation of persons and property; and (2) the expenditure authority for the Airport and Airway Trust Fund.

    "I'd be terrified they'd give us both", Dr. Paul?

    He talks a good game, eh?  Be careful of what you embrace TEA Party movement folks.

    and, all the PaulTards go batsh!t-nuts-crazy in 5... 4... 3... 2...

    But unless there's something I'm not seeing, I have no clue why Paul would have voted yes on this.

    One thing to note: The initial version was passed in both the senate and house by a voice vote back in March.

    Don't worry, they'll find a way (none / 0) (#2)

    to explain it, defend it, and claim that's what he meant all along CS. And um, that's DR. Ron Paul.

    Actually, I see Paul agrees with me, that the fair tax would be compromised down to giving us both a progressive income tax and a VAT.

    Yeah, that's what they say (none / 0) (#4)

    the Fair tax will repeal the 16th amendment.  Therein lies the rub.  Good luck getting enough support to do both repealing the 16th and implementing a whole new way to tax.  With the opposition interested in getting a VAT, they will try for both.  

    At the risk of asking an obvious question... (none / 0) (#8)

    ...have you tried contacting Cong. Paul's office for a statement on this particular vote?
