Please Sign This Petition To Repeal The Gas Tax!


Join Me In Urging All Levels Of Government To Repeal All Taxes On Fuel

The federal government enjoys taxing its citizens because they believe that they can spend the money better than we can.  For decades, there has been an ongoing discussion on what the government should pay for and how much they should be able to tax.

Unfortunately, the cowards in Washington DC only spend time talking about the taxes that are visible to the American Public.  Hardly anyone even realizes that the average American pays almost 50 cents a gallon every time they purchase gas.  That means that most Americans will pay thousands of dollars in hidden taxes over the next decade.

We need to end the Federal Gas Tax, and urge states to do the same.  Please “sign” this petition by commenting/sharing the article all over social media.  Below are some facts on why this is one hidden tax that needs to be eliminated in order to help get the United States out of the current recession.  Please share this article with all of your friends, followers, and connections.  Thanks!
