From Mike Huckabee:

Tax Day is rapidly approaching. As Americans prepare to give an unfair and growing amount of their paychecks to the Federal Government, our mission is clearer now more than ever:

Folks, it is time we put the IRS out of business.

Together we can accomplish this goal if we work hard to elect a record number of candidates to Congress this November who support the Fair Tax or who are willing to learn more about it.

But before I explain how we do this, let me first – for those of you who are unfamiliar with the Fair Tax – briefly explain how it works.

You get rid of income tax.

You get rid of all the withholding.

You get rid of corporate taxes completely, totally. After all – those taxes are not really paid by the corporations. They’re passed on to the customer with a 22 percent embedded tax in the system.

You eliminate that, which means the prices of what you purchase will go down.

You replace it with a 23 percent consumption tax. Now, that sounds expensive, but you only pay when you purchase something new, whether it’s a product or a service.

Also, it’s a completely transparent tax system.

It doesn’t increase taxes. It’s revenue neutral. It will bring business back to the United States that leaving our shores – our current, complicated, unfair tax laws make it impossible for an American-based business to compete with lower tax structures in other countries.

Political insiders will say something this "sweeping" will never be passed. They’re wrong! With your help . . . it can – and it will.

I urge you to sign my petition to the Republican candidates running for Congress. Help us reach 50,000 signatures by April 15.

I have signed this petition and I hope and pray that you will add your signature next to mine.
