My intent here is not to disparage the group and if it sounded that way I am sorry. But I do think we owe it to ourselves to be realistic in where we stand. I have been a Libertarian activist for a long time and this is a common problem in this type of group. When we inflate our size we create unrealistic expectations. People think it will happen overnight and then get discouraged when it does not.
I am glad you clarified this, I saw your comment within 1 hour of when you posted it. I had read some of your comments and thought you were here just to nit pick and decided to not even waste my time with an answer. Notice I said "IF" we had 5mil. My point was the power of multiplying numbers 5 times 10 equal 50 plus the 5 equal 55. Somehow we must educate the public, the media is not doing it, the politicians are not doing it and are not going to. The FAIRTAX will not happen until the majority of citizens learn about it and force our government to enact it. If we could get all Fairtax supporters wherever they are to educate 10 people then weve got 11 times more than we have now.
I read somewhere that Libertarians are split 50/50 on the issue.
I have to say that I've had to undo some of the damage that Glenn Beck has created with a flat tax. Though Beck has many fine ideas and principles, this is one area that he needs to research a bit further.
I ran into one of these guys at John Kasich's formal announcement event. It was a great opportunity for me to explain a bit about the history of our present tax code, and a bit about VAT. I'm pretty sure he'll be one to go to fairtax.org and hopefully, here. I know he'll rethink flat tax. Geez, which version of the flat tax would you go with? There are several that have been proposed, and no research to back any of 'em up. Too much play in that game.
