You no doubt remember the Iowa Straw Poll back in 2008, when the Fairtax Bus and the Carnival tent, and FairTax Fair-ris wheel, don't you? What a time,and Fairtax really got on the map that summer. I'm just not sure if this coming year it's the best use of our funds to try to out-do that.
So, I'm setting up this discussion to get support for a much less cost, but just as super an idea. There will be a section of "vendor booths" outside the candidate area, where people get literature on the issues du-jour, and probably alot of free pens too!
I want FairTax to host a booth, that has (ready??) ----- A shootin' gallery! You come in, sign up, get some FairTax promotion gear, and then get escorted over to the range to SHOOT DOWN some of those nasty Federal taxes! Get a thousand points for killing off the 16th amendment!
There are several systems to accomplish this, and much of it can be done with our own workmanship. First, there's BB's; a nogo. Then waterguns, better but messy. Also paintball, also a nogo. But wait! there's LASER tag. (No one shoots anyone else, though) It's all electronic, digital, PORTABLE, and quite cheap!
Since the feedback has been so positive, I'm posting some pictures and a video to show all.Also, try this link, for a scaled down idea of how it works.
I like this "Gun, Freedom and Money Idea" ...
You got to make your Lazer Gun HUGE.
Do we know yet when the straw poll will take place? I was also in Ames with some others from GA.
