Meet Ron Eller
Sometimes visiting places like CPAC in Orlando, Florida, has a delayed positive impact. We FAIRtax-ers stood in a central area between the main auditorium and the exhibition area and struck up a conversation with Congressional Candidate Ron Eller, seeking to become the next Congress Member from Mississippi’s Second District.
When CPAC was over, we all went home. A couple of weeks later, Ron reached out to Jim Bennett for more information. Shortly thereafter, Ron signed the FAIRtax Candidate Pledge.
Ron brings an impressive resume to the race with awards and credentials to prove it. His career started with two decades of experience in the Army, first as a Medical Aidman in Fort Benning, Georgia, where he provided emergency medical care and air evacuation to the military and civilian communities. Ron received the Expert Field Medical Badge. For the next three years, Ron held the rank of platoon Sergeant in Nürnberg, Germany, where he oversaw 28 medical paraprofessionals. There he acted as the clinical director of the Johnson Barracks Troop Medical Clinic. The clinic had a patient population of 3,000.
There Ron was selected as the Noncommissioned Officer of the Year, Drug and Alcohol Coordinator of the Year, and was nominated as a lifetime member of the Sergeant Morales Club. The Sergeant Morales Club promotes the highest ideals of integrity, professionalism, and leadership for the enlisted force serving in Europe.
Ron’s Army career took him to West Point, where he worked up to Emergency Services Director at the Keller Army Hospital.
Still in the Army, Ron earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in 1991 from the University of Oklahoma, with honors in Primary Care and Surgery. Ron earned a Master’s Degree from the University of Nebraska.
For most of the early to mid-'90s, Ron worked in the Army as a Physician's Assistant at Schofield Barracks in Hawaii and Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington, D.C. He earned certifications in Cardiovascular Perfusion, Primary Care, and Surgery.
Ron rose to the rank of E-7 (there are only two more after that) before becoming a Warrant Officer. Then he received a direct commission as a Captain, the rank at which he retired from the service.
But Ron is not yet retired. He has worked as a Cardiothoracic Physician’s Assistant in Mississippi and was on the front line of the COVID pandemic. Currently, Ron works at Saint Dominic Hospital in Jackson, Mississippi.
In addition to serving his country and serving as a critical person in Cardiothoracic Surgery, Ron is entrepreneurial. He founded Buck Warrior Enterprises, LLC because he grew tired of products that did a poor job attracting deer. His inventions, Buck Powder and ME2, do a better job attracting bucks (male deer) and helping them grow healthy with massive racks.
Other products in Ron’s program include “Time Bomb,” “Cover It with Ceder,” “Cover It with Pine,” “Cover It with White Oak,” “Forbidden,” “Harvester,” “Dust to Dust” (cover scent and laundry detergent), “Covert,” and “Smell Ya Later.” Ron also offers a line of merchandise. Through managing his company, he has learned about paying taxes in multiple states. He quickly saw how running his business will be far more manageable once the FAIRtax passes.
Ron somehow juggles his job and his business with running for Congress. Ron got into politics because he believes that Mississippi’s Second Congressional District needs community revitalization based on free-market principles. Ron offers an "E-3" program: Education, Economics, and Energy. We predict that Ron will win his Republican Primary on June 7, 2022, and need not compete in a Runoff on June 28, 2022. If successful, he will probably face incumbent Bennie Thompson in the general election on November 8, 2022. Ron just received the endorsement of “BLAKPAC,” Black, Latino, Asian, Knowledge.
Ron heard of the FAIRtax for the first time at the CPAC convention and, after looking into it, decided to make it one of his issues and sign the pledge. Ron likes the FAIRtax because he hates the inheritance tax. This tax has caused numerous people to lose their family farms and businesses. Ron notes that rich people can put large portions of their wealth into trusts. Furthermore, the income tax is a tax on the poor and the middle class. A consumption tax makes more sense than most others because everybody has skin in the game. When a poor guy buys a pickup truck and a rich guy buys a yacht, both pay, as do undocumented aliens. Even if you are making money illegally, you still buy things and have skin in the game with a consumption tax.
The FAIRtax is the best form of consumption tax. It does away with the IRS, resulting in a $12 billion savings. Think of saving the salaries of 87,000 IRS agents times $75,000 each in salaries plus benefits – and those are just the direct personnel costs. IRS agents do not generate wealth. Like other government employees, they spend other people’s wealth, creating class warfare.
Ron was born in Sewickley, PA, and grew up in a single-parent household in West Virginia. However, he has lived in practically every town on the east coast. In 1979, Ron married his childhood sweetheart, Doris, and the two have been together for over forty years. Ron and Doris have two sons, one of whom has three sons of his own. The other son has a Ph.D. in Agronomy.
