Big spenders want to tax Internet pruchases

Letter to the editor

On Feb.14, 2012 big government spenders in the U.S. Senate introduced S.336 “The National Internet Tax Mandate,” deceitfully labeled “The Market Place Fairness Act.” It would tax Internet sales. If this bill is enacted, big spending state governors of both the Democratic and Republican parties would work with the IRS to implement a state sales tax on all merchandise purchased online. Big spending governors are running their states into bankruptcy. Instead of reducing spending, they want the IRS to force you and I to bail them out with new Internet taxes.

Under the guise of “national security,” establishment bureaucrats are already looking for new ways to trace, track and register all Americans’ online activities. Now the “One World Government/New World Order” socialists at the United Nations (U.N.) want in on the action as well. Recently 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 U.S. Senate this U.N. treaty scheduled 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 cut out of the trillions of dollars exchanging hands via the Internet commerce. This would make the U.N. a true World government. This American “National Internet Tax Mandate” is playing right into the U.N. plans.

So you are upset that you would have to pay sales tax on items you purchase off the internet? How is it fair to Georgia merchants to lose sales due to this loophole? Seems if you buy it, you should pay the sales tax on it. You are worried about losing your tax free status while others pay extra to carry your share of the load. Somehow that just doesn't seem to be right.
