Thoughts from the Back of the FairTax Bike by Carol Adams McLean, newlywed to Mike McLean owner of the FairTax Bike and Grass Roots Freedom Ride Director.
Never in my life did I think I would be one of those women on the back of a bike out on the Interstate. Last week, given good reasons - to support our veterans and the FairTax, I hopped on the back of the FairTax bike to head out to Rolling Thunder this Memorial Day. So we packed up the… Continue

Hello FairTax Directors, Coordinators and Supporters,
During the last month GRFR has been working with Ken Hoagland at AFFT, who is nationally promoting the Grass Roots Freedom Ride for FairTax (GRFR). FairTax.org
has created a web tool to promote "freedom riders" throughout the country, a fund raising tool for use in every town. With our twist to this walk-a-thon concept, we believe we can create greater visibility and funds for FairTax promotion, by using this tool for fun… Continue

Whether it's govt spending of earmarks, gun rights, mandates in education, trade deficits - any issue today comes back to Taxation Without Representation
. Americans are waking up to the fact that their elected officials no longer listen to them. With a little research the reason is clear. Congressmen are elected 90% by lobbyist funds. They pay back those lobbyists with our tax dollars in the form of earmarks. We cannot fight off every assault on our individual liberties - they can pass… Continue

Go to ourcaucus.com and watch the videos (called Articles) for a real education on why our country is broke and how our politicians have sold us out - both republican and democrat. The series end with an endorsement (not in video as the series is not yet complete) of a National Sales Tax as well as a change in congressional budgeting procedure. They don't call the National Sales Tax the FairTax, but the explanation is the FairTax.
Anyone know about the group that put together these… Continue

On our inaugural ride, Big Al and Hayley videotaped us for part of their show (episode#19). We're at about the 60% mark on the 30 minute video. Mike plugged FairTax.org, FairTaxNation.com and of course www.grassrootsfreedomride.com

In the next couple months, FairTax.org will be updating their website to include the Grass Roots Freedom Ride as a fund raiser. The FairTax bus has been decommissioned so the bike rallies will take the place of a physical presence of activity from the national FairTax organization. Although this will change the internal working of our organization, it will not change the use of the money raised - to see FairTax passed into law!
Using the web designers from FairTax.org, we'll have a much… Continue
