I enjoyed talking to you earlier today about how to implement our Boortz project now that the "Local Leaders" section of the website is expected to be down for quite some time.
As I mentioned to you Doug Dash, my wife Carol, & I were planning to personally contact (preferrably by telephone) local leaders in areas where The Neal Boortz Radio Program is not heard to see if we could generate interest in FairTax supporters contacting radio stations to see if the program could be added to the station lineup.
As an alternative you suggested that you would put the idea on FairTax Nation. Below is a message that we were planning to send to any interested local leaders as a guide. Time is of the essence if we want to use the O'Reilly going off the air angle. Please feel free to use any of this message as you see fit on FairTax Nation. Also you can refer anyone that shows interest directly to me if they have any questions.
"There is a direct link between the listening area where The Neal Boortz Radio Program is heard & congressional co-sponsorship of HR 25 The FairTax Act of 2009. Neal regularly talks about the FairTax on his radio program & in fact the great majority of FairTax volunteer leaders all over the country first learned about the FairTax through Neal's program. AFFT is very pleased with Neal's obvious endorsement of the FairTax even though AFFT can not & does not officially endorse Neal's radio program.
The listening area totals about 5 million people who obviously have talked to their congressmen about the FairTax - hence the congressional support in these districts.
It is important that we have a breakthrough for the FairTax in parts of the country where Neal's show is currently not widely heard. In this regard Bill O'Reilly has announced that in about a month he is discontinuing his radio program heard on about 400 stations across America which gives us an excellent opportunity.
Acting as an individual & not an official FairTax representative please write to (local leader should select station or stations) & ask them to add The Neal Boortz Radio Program to their lineup - either live or tape delayed. The letter does not have to be any longer than the simple request to add Neal's program to their lineup & really does not even have to mention the FairTax.
