Thanks for the fill in Pati. I too wish they could have had a better turn-out. I think there was also a meet and greet for several republicans in the area that evening as well.

I do feel very lucky to have the two jobs as I am the sole support for my wife and I. And the part time job is something I actually enjoy, so it is not so bad.

I'll be looking for our letters to the editor, but won't be real surprised if they don't make it.

Take care, Fank

All the candidates for Ohio State offices were there. They each spoke about why they are uniquely qualified to hold the positions for which they are running, pointed out that they ALL have their regular jobs they are doing while going all over the state to meet with people. Some of them are 'less' open to supporting the Fair Tax than others. I think there were maybe ten or fifteen people in the listening audience, but they still gave their presentation. Feldman, running for AG came from Cleveland to be there! The only one who has been in politics before is Earl--think that's his name, running for Sect. of State, who held a state position in the legislature 26 years ago, and got out after one term with a 'self-imposed' term limit. They all sound like reasonable people who want to 'serve' their fellow Ohioans to get them back on track and then get out. The man running for Auditor has been an assistant auditor under two or three others, so he could step in and do the job; the man running for Treas. has owned and operated his own business with his wife for more than twenty years and has an MBA from Ohio State. Anderson was there in the audience, and all of the candidates took questions from the audience well. I wish they had seen more people interested in them and what they have to say, but I don't know that much word got out soon enough. They need better PR, I think..someone who can get the media to cover them or to run ads etc.

Glad to hear that you have some work, Frank! So many people are struggling right now, that I'm sure any work they can find MUST take priority! I hope it will lead to something more permanent for you! This is WHY we need the Fair Tax, right? Stimulate this lagging economy...why are people so hard headed? They cry about wanting change and then RUN from any change that actually SOUNDS like change. I don't get that.

Thanks on the editorial. Let's see if they'll publish it. lol

Hi Pati,
I started my part time job this weekend. I'll be missing alot of stuff until after July. Please post a review of how the event went as I am very interested in what took place. Usually, I have a weeks notice when I start. That simply wasn't the case this year.

The revised letter to DDN is even better than before. Lets see if they will admit to their own short sightedness.

Where was everybody tonite? Scott and I were the only Fair Tax people to attend the Libertarian platform candidates event at the VFW. I felt kind of sorry for the guys.

Edited version with corrections and seriously cutting word count:


In an editorial titled “Austria better for Republicans in Greene, Clarke,” the author made a declarative statement that the Fair Tax is an “unworkable” tax plan. There was no supportive documentation for such a comment, and given that all three of the conservative candidates running for the 7th District Congressional seat support the passage of the Fair Tax legislation, I feel it important to make note of that fact.

I would suggest that people not familiar with the legislation go to www.fairtax.org or www.fairtaxnation.com to familiarize themselves with the plan that resulted from a 10 year study by dozens of economists, businessmen, and accountants before drawing any conclusions about the ‘workability’ of the plan. There are 44 states that already implement a sales tax. The idea that collecting an additional amount for the federal government is ‘unworkable’ is beyond absurd. Those states stand as evidence of the ‘workability’ of the Fair Tax. In addition, the states will keep 1% of all the money they collect for the federal government as a collection fee. The better environment they provide for growth, the more dollars available for infrastructure, thus limiting the excuses for earmarks and pork in federal legislation.

Mitchel supports the passage of the Fair Tax, as does Anderson, the Libertarian candidate. I recently met with Congressman Steve Austria in DC at which time he assured me he would vote for the bill.

Why such support? The economy needs a stimulus.The Fair Tax plan (HR 25) would provide that stimulus!


emailing it now.

Uh-oh. It says to limit the letters to 250 words...yikes. I guess some editing, serious editing is needed. LOL

Good to NOTE, Frank. I'll make those changes. I think I also want to change the end a bit to come back to the person's 'unworkable' comment...for symetry.

Okay. Then, I guess I'll send it on. The worst they can do is not publish it, right?

Geeze Pati, after reading your statement I almost feel like ripping mine up (lol). But I will send it in none the less. We haven't had as much success getting the DDN to publish our stuff. But we have to keep trying. Maybe if more of us write them, they'll see a need to address the FairTax.
By the way, John Anderson is the Libertarian candidate. But I could see how you came up with Johnson because I did the same thing a couple of times.
Have you met our state director yet? His name is Steve Curtis and he is really good.
Hope to see you all soon.

Regards,
Frank

Okay, Frank. I read the article you cited. This is my response:

Editorial:

In an editorial titled “Austria better for Republicans in Greene, Clarke” published on April 22, 2010 the individual made a declarative statement that the Fair Tax is an “unworkable” tax plan. There was no supportive documentation for such a comment, and given that all three of the candidates running for the 7th District Congressional seat support the passage of the Fair Tax legislation, should it come to the floor for a vote, I feel it important make note of that fact.

I would suggest that people not familiar with the legislation go to www.fairtax.org or www.fairtaxnation.com to familiarize themselves with the plan that resulted from a 10 year study by dozens of economists, businessmen, and accountants before drawing any conclusions about the ‘workability’ of the plan.

It is a matter of record that Mitchel supports the passage of the Fair Tax, as does Johnson, the Libertarian candidate. I recently met with Congressman Steve Austria in DC at which time he assured me that he would vote for the bill.

This economy is in dire need of a real stimulus. The Fair Tax plan (HR 25) would provide that stimulus! We have suffered long enough under the thumbs of the politicians and the lobbyists who fund them. Americans don’t need more constraints on their incomes. They don’t need bureaucrats to continue to manipulate a code that is already 70,000 pages long and so complex that the authors of the legislation cannot manage to follow its directives. We don’t need an institution that is incorrect in its calculations 25% of the time, yet has the power to freeze our assets before evidence of guilt has even been established! The Fair Tax legislation dismantles the IRS, repeals all of the tax code, and replaces it with a consumption tax of 23% that is revenue neutral: meaning the federal government’s current revenue levels will be met. This plan protects the poverty line; it ensures that all Americans participate in funding the federal government; provides all working Americans with their entire gross income every payday; creates an environment for growth and investment in our economy because it does not penalize productivity as the current income tax system does.

I am a firm believer in the Republic. The Fair Tax returns power back into the hands of the people. Demand your candidates go on-record as to what form of tax plan they would endorse. If it is not the Fair Tax, they are not a candidate that wants to restore the power the government has gathered unto itself back to the people as the founders intended. Why would you vote in someone who so openly refuses to acknowledge for whom they work?

When you go into the voting booth, vote for YOU…that’s the candidate who will restore the power over your own earnings back to you with the passage of the Fair Tax.



This is my response. Let me know what you think. I won't send it otherwise.

Are you kidding? They ACTUALLY stated that as a declarative??? Based upon what? The Fair Tax has 10 years and dozens of economists, businessmen and accountants BACKING its 'workability'--is that a word? lol--what does this freaking 'reporter'-term used loosely--have to support their declaration? None, I would say.

I don't know Frank. I have a 'tendency' to be ...what's the word? Sarcastic and aggressive in my approach. I've been a rebel my entire life and have little to no respect for anyone who thinks they have any level of authority or intellectual powers greater than I--i.e. if they come across as condescending, I just don't even TRY to control my sword-like tongue. Might not be the BEST person to be a spokesperson for the Fair Tax. LOL I might tick too many people off. BUT..if they continue to LIE, what do we have to lose?

Keep me posted. Or, how about I will write something up, and run it by you first?
