Many years ago I tried getting involved in The Fair Tax movement. I will not say what state, but I tried calling various leaders in various positions. I heard finger pointing, nervous cackling, Gabby Hayes doing his indignant rant from Blazing Saddles. One lady went to tears blubbering I can not find anybody. Sounded like Lucille Ball's early sitcoms. There were no John Waynes. There were no Winston Churchills.
So flaw # 1 in the movement - Leadership or lack of.
