Did you know that many of the 13 colonies were founded as tax havens from the British?  Or that our Founding Fathers declared independence from Britain because King George wanted to raise the 1-2% on colonial Americans to 3-4%?  Compare that to the 33% income tax that the average American pays today!  Did you know that the tax on your telephone calls was originally intended to be a "temporary tax" to pay for the Spanish-American War over 100 years ago?

 

How did taxes get so out of control between 1776 and now?  Grover Norquist, president and founder of Americans for Tax Reform has a new book called END THE IRS BEFORE IT ENDS US: HOW TO RESTORY A LOW-TAX, HIGH GROWTH, WEALTHY AMERICA and he is coming back on the show to explain America has strayed so far from our anti-tax, pro-liberty origins.

He says the IRS has gotten out of control and he has a plan to roll back taxes and promote economic growth with the eventual goal of abolishing the IRS entirely.  He'll provide tips on how every American can reduce their individual tax burden.
