Comments:The Quixtar opportunity has had a vast positive impact on me and my family. Five of our six children are now directly involved as IBO s, building their own businesses. The leaders of this organization have always stressed the importance of sound business principles ESPECIALLY THE CRITICAL NECESSITY OF PERFECTLY TRANSPARENT HONESTY IN ALL BUSINESS DEALINGS as well as in all other areas of life. The proposed regulations are excessive and would impose massive burdens on both honest business owners and those charged with the responsibilty of enforcing the regulations. Dishonest operators will not be impacted in the least — having no respect for the good spirit and intent of the regulations they will easily find a way to side-step or loop hole their way through the letter of those regulations. The end result: closed-off opportunity for 10's of 1000's of current business owners and potentially millions of future owners, and a field left vacated for the manipulators and frauds. The increased burden of enforcement will only result in inconsistent enforcement which is functionally the same as a double or multiple standard — working always to the disadvantage of ethical, honest citizens. Double or unevenly applied standards are despicable, a key feature of corruption and ever a favorite tool of tyrants. We cannot urge you strongly enough to follow the recomendations of the Quixtar leadership concerning these proposed regulations.
