Help name our April 15 event!

We need creative FairTaxers to help us come up with a name for our FairTax event in Washington DC on April 14, 15, & 16.

The week of April 14 to April 19 is going to be a big week for citizen action in DC and FairTax is going to be in the lead. We need a name to use for our event. Something that someone who knows nothing about the FairTax may see the name and say -- gee I would like to attend that event!

This is a very tentative idea of what we would like to do in DC… Continue

National Spokesman or National Spokesmen team?

In discussing a National Spokesman with many of you, the idea has arisen that a team of spokesmen may be preferable. We need a very visible presence in the media and it may be more effective the have a team economists, CPAs, parents, etc. available to speak to the issues surrounding the FairTax. For example if the subject is small business - a small business owner may be our best spokesman.

What do you think?

Grassroots Events PA, Netroots, Right Online and more...

If you have been watching C-SPAN this past weekend, you would have seen programing from two very important events in Pittsburgh, PA -- Netroots, a conference of left leaning bloggers, and Right Online, a conference of right leaning bloggers. FairTax was, and needed to be, at both events.

I attended the Netroots event and I can report we were warmly received. We had a few "I am not interested" and two who were concerned we were a right wing organization because Mike Huckabee endorsed… Continue

A FairTax Phenomenon by John Collet

Brother and Sister FairTax Supporters

It is 1:30 Saturday, 2/28 and I am recovering from one of the most delightful shocks of my life. This morning Kansas City experienced one of the worst blizzards I have ever seen in this city. By 8:00 AM some parts of the areas had 5 inches on the ground and it was increasing in intensity.

Earl Long, KS SD, and I thought it would be impossible to have an out door rally that anticipated a mile walk from the starting point to MO Senator… Continue

FairTax Editorial written by Congressman John Linder, sponsor of the FairTax Bill

Congressman Linder requests our help in distributing his editoral below to your local media and national media

Is it time for the FairTax?

When they see a problem – immigration, energy, or a collapse of the credit markets – politicians step forward and announce, “We must do SOMETHING!”

That part is a given. What is not a given is what SOMETHING is. And, alas, it comes down to whatever the majority party in the House and in the Senate decides it will… Continue
