"The discussion for a "limited" CC and "no precedent" makes me very curious. Several meetings were held prior to the signing of the Art. of Confed. and between Sept. 1787 and May 1788 when SC finally assented to this Constitution.…"
"I too am of the opinion that a ConCon would be dangerous. Remember, you are dealing with the masters of pork, adding crap to legislation that has absolutely nothing to do with the legislation's original intent.
Essentially, one could end up…"
"We do not need coalitions that can bend the arm of government because they to will become corrupt over time. We do not need a conservative "Move On.org". We need organizations that will motivate the people to express their demands to he…"
"I am unclear why there is any discussion or why any thing more needs to be introduced to eliminate the IRS. H.R. 25/S.296 clearly addresses elimination of the IRS and what happens in the event the IRS is not eliminated in a specific time frame. The…"
"It sounds to me as though you are getting all your information from the Fairtax book. (which is a good guide) A better source of information is fairtax.org. I believe (from what I read above) you are unaware that according to H.R.25 / S.296, states…"
"It is way to early to start pushing unified coalitions. There are a number of organizations out there all with many good ideas. Let these groups have time to cultivate their ideas. When the strong ideas float to the top then a strong coalition or…"
"There is no need to build a co-alition to acheive this. There is already one working on it. I think we should all join in this effort, instead of being fractured. We will have more influence than working seperately. It's being organized by the…"
"I thank you for taking the time and effort to become familiar with my proposal. I appreciate this effort and respect your thoughts and ideas.
I have learned through these discussions there are a number of reasons the public has to be concerned with…"
I will be watching your coalition from the tall grass. If it turns into something I can support then I will join you. In the mean time I will continue to practice Assymetrical Politics from within the Libertarian Movement.
I applaud your…"
Now I understand your objection and have respect for your concern. I am now working on approaches to several groups as possible members of a coalition. There is a very successful movement that has found acceptance and it is a text book…"
You have not answered my objection because your answer missed the point of the objection. I understand the constitutional process and have looked at your links and still do not see you addressing my objection.
So, here it is again.
"Thanks for telling me of my beliefs.
I offer a scenario that's different from yours. Its not that a "few states" would have to restructure their taxing system. Its 45. Or they could decide to keep their tax system. Legislators are…"
Great feedback from CC I. Thank you. It seems as though everyone understands the nature of such an endeavor (CC) and that it is in deed very risky. Had this topic come up 10 or 20 years ago the fear of what socialist types would attempt to do would have been considerably less. But we are in the present and must take action. As quickly as this administration is moving to the left how much of our constitution, in it's original intent, will remain in a few years? Being bold has always been an an…See More
"Dear Simon Girty,
The answer to your objection is this. If we go the regular route we are dealing with control of the congress which is under control of the liberal majority at this time. The popular vote as evidenced by the control of the congress…"
If you had, or were capable of puting together, a "strong coalition of selected organizations who will have the power to influence the state legislatures to ammend only the items requested by the coalition" then why do you even need a…"
FairTax Nation a site designed and managed by FairTax volunteers to serve the needs of FairTax advocates by providing a place to share ideas, find resources and create new opportunities with the goal of passing the FairTax HR 25.
On Nation we are working on many projects. One is our 50 State Campaign. We want to link at least 1,000 active volunteers in each state to work together in a national effort to pass the FairTax. That would give us at least 50,000 active volunteers able to communicate, plan events, etc. I know some people want a FairTax rally in Washington D.C. This is how we build the organization to make this event and many others possible.
Please feel free to invite your FairTax friends to join us.
