Good job! We need them here. I don't do face book or my space or any of the other sites like that. Showing my age. I came here looking for a way to help get the Fair Tax passed and I think I came to the right place, by George!
I believe we need at least one central place where can come together to network and provide a more cohesive base, and this seems to be the place.
I'm still looking for a meeting, where there are real people, in the San Antonio area. I've been wearing a FairTax had and golf shirt for over 6 mos. now. I've had ONE comment. I'm overwhelmed!
Well all I can say is that you have to start somewhere. Have you looked into setting up a FairTax meeting at the local library or something? Put out some flyers at the political party gatherings in your city and get a few folks to join you.
TX has a LOT of FairTaxers.
Look at what Jamie Wheeler has done in Washington state (of all places). She started here on FTN with two people in her entire state and she did not even know who the other one was.
She forced things to happen.
Here in my area, I have been working for over 2 years with little help. At the Memphis TEA party I got involved and was able to talk about FairTax from the stage. We had over 60 locals join FTN on that day alone and several more have come on after that.
We need someone to step up and step out in San Antonio Texas. TAG, you're it!
Peter, I too have my first meeting sched. for tomorrow night. There are no meetings around here, Marion, Ohio, so I guessed it was up to me to get it started.
I met Barbara Wilson here at FTN and she has been terrific at helping me to get going. She lives three hours away, but through this site, phone calls, and emails, she has provided tips and resources for me. I've met with her once in person.
Have you contacted Fair Tax.org by email or by phone? They may know of some leaders in TX that can mentor you the way Barb is mentoring me. If not, drop Barb a line here on FTN. She's full of good stuff. Or call Marilyn Rickert. You can find her info on the Ohio groups site here.
I feel as if we're on the very brink of turning the tide about this issue. Pay attention to Jim Tomasik. He gives great info and ideas, and is very inspiring.
Wow, wish I could come to your meeting. I can get out in front with this thing, I just can't imagine that there isn't already somebody doing it.
Are you having your meeting in you home or some other venue? I'd sure feel better about trying to organize something if I had any idea what others in this area are trying to do. What do you call the meeting. I am thinking that I'd like to start out with just sort of a social get-together. Just to see some faces, and see what kind of reaction there is.
Tell us how you meeting goes, and what you are trying to accomplish.
