"I apologize for my remarks being too combative. The way I phrased my argument was inappropriate and wrong.
However, I stand by my point. To suggest that those who do not agree with your political views are the "masses" and that they are…"
"Forgot U can lv a msg. here. I am laughing 2 hard. maybe 1 day i'll get the hang of ning.
Enjoyed your comments from the start. That's the dude who says what he means & means what he says. And he does it w/out blathering.
"Randy and Dennis,
I admire your zeal. I only disagree with your tactics and that is not a critical difference. I fear that this movement is likely to be co-opted by the political establishment.
Here is how they do that. First, you apply pressure to…"
"One way to fight back is to abandon the corrupt organization that has turned it's back on you. You can always rejoin later, but as a demonstration of your frustration hit them where it hurts. The evidence cited above proves that more and more…"
"Marc and Sean,
The Contract with America also had lots of supporters in the GOP. They signed on, they claimed the moral high ground, they took credit for saving America, and they never actually accomplished the major provisions of the contract. They…"
"And if there is not a new political party that perfectly matches your ideal.......then what? Do you remain a pawn for the two existing major political parties which are together responsible for the mess we are currently in? They have had their…"
You said: "The only way a third party will ever work is if we can get Instant Recall Voting passed" That is why it will not pass. Republicans and Democrats will work together to prevent anything that will help a third party.
I am not the official spokesperson for the LP so I have to qualify how I answer your excellant question. First off, the Fair Tax, as a political idea, is fairly new. It has really caught fire in this grass roots movement, but I don't think…"
"Miss Fair Tax,
What did you read recently about Libartarians and Health Care? The sound of your comment make me think you got a hold of some disinformation. True libertarians believe in small government. Any kind of government health care proposal…"
"I agree it will take unconventional tactics to change the political landscape, but what we need to learn is what kind of tactics. Demonstrations for non leftist causes will get little media, as you point out. But demonstrations can be a good way to…"
"Perot did have a good run, but in the end all he really offered was his deep pockets and charisma. The problem with basing a campaign/party/movement on a charismatic leader is that you reinforce the idea that what we need to save the country is to…"
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.
