The only thing politicians love more than spending your money is taking more of it. As early as next week, statists in BOTH parties are set to ram through a new taxing scheme that’s been years in the works — the National Internet Tax Mandate. Should it pass, every man, woman, and child in the country will feel the pinch as Congress takes a MASSIVE bite out of American prosperity. Campaign for Liberty President John Tate explains below why the National Internet Tax Mandate scheme is so dangerous. Please read his and take action IMMEDIATELY.

And, this is what John Tate has to say about this proposed tax:
Call it the Valentine’s Day Tax Massacre. On February 14, 2013, statists in Congress introduced S. 336, the National Internet Tax Mandate. Of course, the tax-and-spenders sponsoring the bill mislabeled it the “Marketplace Fairness Act.” Designed as a fat Valentine’s Day “I LOVE YOU” to big spending politicians, this dangerous bill would hand the federal government massive new controls over state tax policies and set the stage for government at all levels to take another helping of your money via the Internet. Currently, because of the Founders’ vision for our country, states are “laboratories” — free to set their own tax policies. High tax, big spending, highly regulatory state governments send businesses and citizens alike fleeing across state lines in search of more liberty. But under the National Internet Tax Mandate scheme, the statists are setting the stage to bring it all to a crashing halt–NO Internet Tax Mandate.
Under the new National Internet Tax Mandate: All Americans would see their taxes go up as big spending governors of BOTH parties work with the federal government’s IRS goons to implement a state sales tax on ALL goods purchased online. Big spending governors are running their states into bankruptcy, and — instead of reducing spending — they want the IRS to force YOU to bail them out with new Internet taxes! Tax collectors in one state would now be free to pursue retailers across state lines.
For example, if a customer in New York makes a purchase from an online retailer in Texas, that retailer MUST collect New York’s exorbitant sales taxes and send it to New York’s tax collection agencies; New and higher taxes would CRUSH economic growth and set the stage for massive new regulations that threaten the very existence of the Internet. Make no mistake. This is all bad enough on its face. But it’s hardly the end of it.
You and I both know, under the guise of “national security,” establishment bureaucrats are already feverishly looking for new ways to trace, track, and register all Americans’ online activity. What you read. What you buy. What videos you watch. What you write about THEM. Now the one-world socialists at the United Nations want in on the action, as well. Just a few months ago, the U.N. drafted a new “Telecommunications Treaty” to impose restrictive regulations, global CENSORSHIP, and a massive new tax on all Internet operations.
If ratified by the United States Senate, the United Nations’ “Telecommunications Treaty” — designed to take effect in 2015 — could give control of the Internet to U.N. bureaucrats. Ultimately, the U.N. hopes to use this scheme to take a tax bite out of the TRILLIONS of dollars exchanging hands via Internet commerce — money that will make the U.N. a true world government. And this National Internet Tax Mandate is playing right into their hands. Just like the Wall Street bailouts and the recent “deal” over tax hikes, this new National Internet Tax Mandate is “bipartisan” to its core. And the statists in BOTH parties are determined to RAM this scheme into law quickly before you and I have a chance to react. Governors from all over the country who literally CANNOT wait to be FORCED to raise taxes are busy bending the ears of Congress.
NO Internet Tax Mandate!
Now, some of the loudest voices in Congress are Republicans who think you simply don’t care about this critical issue. But I think you do care. Will you stand by while the big taxers impose yet another tax on hardworking Americans? Do you simply shrug your shoulders at the thought of United Nations global socialists shutting down the free flow of information worldwide? If passed, the new National Internet Tax Mandate would hand the federal government massive new controls over state tax policies, setting the stage for government at all levels to take another helping of your money via the Internet.
NO Internet Tax Mandate!
