"I intend to abolish the federal income tax by 1) exposing the computer fraud committed by the IRS and 2) by assesing a 'One half of one percent' fee on the $727 Billion of daily securities transfered by the Federal Reserve Bank (FRB). My plan provides exactly $919 Billion of tax revenue to the Federal government using the fee on the FRB method which is exactly what the IRS collects from the federal income tax yearly." Robert M. Barber is the founder of The Philoeconopolist Party founded in 1996. He began his "1997 Abolish Income Taxes Tour" on April 15th '97 and went from State Capitol to State Capitol talking with Americans about how they can help to Abolish Income Taxes. He served his country as a U.S. Marine during the Vietnam conflict (DaNang, 1965), began studying the (philo)sophy, (econo)mics and (pol)itics of taxation (philoeconopolist) in 1977, and is a publisher, author, lecturer, tax and independent IRS Individual Master File De-coding expert, and is an unbiased well-spoken self- educated philosopher, economist, politician and is keeping abreast with the latest issues concerning Foreign Affairs and world finance. Mr. Barber also conducts a half-day workshop for those interested in learning how to De-code IRS Individual Master Files.
