Dear Supporter of Liberty,
The tax-and-spenders in Congress have found another (BIG!) way to pick your pocket.
The power to tax is the power to destroy—and now, the ability to track what you purchase.
If passed, the dangerous "Marketplace Fairness Act" will turn the Commerce Clause on its head, as tax collectors in one state would be free to pursue retailers across state lines.
But many politicians lining up behind this bill don’t just want your hard-earned cash.
Under the guise of “national security,” establishment bureaucrats are feverishly looking for new ways to monitor all Americans’ online activity. This bill will help them gain even more power to do just that.
Do not be fooled. This bill is not about fairness. And it isn’t just about taxes, either. If passed, it will hurt the American taxpayer, business owners, and YOUR INTERNET PRIVACY! It would give even more power to a government entrenched in both the NSA scandal and the IRS targeting of conservatives.
So please sign your No National Internet Tax petition and make your voice heard.

No National Internet Tax Petition
Whereas: Tax-and-spenders in Congress never stop looking for ways to pick Americans’ pockets with higher taxes; and
Whereas: The National Internet Tax Mandate will turn the Commerce Clause on its head, cripple small businesses, hurt the American taxpayer, and destroy Internet privacy; and
Whereas: Under the National Internet Tax Mandate, Texas residents would see their taxes go up as state tax agencies work across state lines to implement a sales tax on ALL goods purchased online; and
Whereas: New and higher taxes would CRUSH economic growth and set the stage for massive new regulations that threaten the very existence of the Internet; and
Whereas: The National Internet Tax Mandate would open the door for tax agencies to track and monitor all purchases made online by Americans.
Therefore: As your constituent, I demand you vote against the National Internet Tax Mandate (H.R. 684) or any other bill to tax online purchases.
