FairTax Nation hits the ground running in 2009.
First off, you may wondering "What is FairTaxNation.ning.com" ? FairTax Nation is a brand new weapon in our arsenal for FairTax grass roots to use. I believe it will prove to be the biggest tool we have to promote the FairTax Act in 2009.
As a continuously growing On Line Petition and organizational tool, we can coordinate FairTax promoting events across the state or across the entire country including Washington DC. Voters will join together in a united front supporting this landmark tax reform initiative merely by joining the site. We will be able to produce a list of names of supporters in any congressional district for the purpose of proving to a member of Congress that there is substantial support for the FairTax.
Even if someone is not into the whole 'on line social group thing', it is still important that they sign up at FairTax Nation to become part of the petition. They will be on record as another voter who supports the FairTax! We encourage every single voter to add his or her name to the list and not be just another silent supporter. We have been quite long enough. Lets make some noise in 2009!
What is FairTaxNation.ning.com not intended for? It is not intended to be a site to go to if you want to debate the worthiness of the FairTax Act. There are thousands of other sites who would be happy to debate with you if that is what you are looking to do. We are, to be pure and simple, a community of people who have decided that FairTax needs to be the law of the land. We will become energized, organized and mobile. We do not want to become bogged down with rehashing the same arguments over and over again. Anyone wishing to learn more about FairTax is encouraged to visit FairTax.org for more information.
Some reporter called the FairTax movement 'stagnant' the other day. That got some of us upset. The truth of the matter is this: The guy is wrong but we have no way to prove it!
Can you point to any place and say "See, we have any certain number of supporters!" ?
Did you know that there are already over a million people who have signed paper ballots in support of the FairTax? Those paper ballots aren't doing us much good because we don't live in the 'paper age'. We are living in an ever advancing cyber age. This is why an on-line petition is more practical. We will be able to prove our numbers to all of America much easier with a site that has a million members promoting the FairTax.
We will work to get those millions of supporters signed up on FairTax Nation by using every tool we have. We will funnel all supporters to the site and encourage them to join. If they do not wish to participate actively, they will at least let there support for FairTax be known.
I encourage state leaders to begin setting up registration booths at every possible event. We are currently working on FairTax Nation's On Line Petition sign up sheet. We can use this tool at the booths to help people register to the site.
If you have any comments or thoughts, we would be glad to hear them.
