Fair Tax Nation

Replace All Federal Taxes on Income with the Fair Tax Act , HR 25

For those who tweet, there is a group on FTN that has info on others who tweet about the FairTax: http://www.fairtaxnation.com/group/twitter.

However, I have found a few Twitter profiles that are dedicated to the FairTax and update pretty regularly.

Please follow these users and retweet their tweets. Re-tweeting with #fairtax hash tags also helps to build to network.


If you tweet under the above accounts (or any others with FairTax in the profile name)...PLEASE DO NOT CROSS-TWEET PARTISAN RHETORIC NOT RELATED TO THE FAIRTAX. Create a personal Twitter account or another political persona account. If we want to broaden the base, we need to STAY ON MESSAGE. You can always re-tweet (RT) FairTax tweet from your other account. Try to link to articles that are not inflammatory and that are more fact-based, than opinion-based. FairTax.org has plenty of good linking opportunities.

Another bi-partisan tip: When given the choice between an Associated Press story on the FoxNews site, MSNBC site, or Google/Yahoo News site, choose the neutral one. Some people are turned off by FoxNews. Having attended tea parties, I am not too fond of MSNBC's coverage (so I don't send business their way). Most people don't get worked up over Yahoo News or Google.

Other good profiles that support small government ideas:

Hash tags are like search topics. Simply add a pound sign to any word to make it a hash tag. #TLOT = Top Libertarians on Twitter; #TCOT = Top Conservatives on Twitter. Other tags I have seen used are #taxes, #stimulus, #reform, #gop, #liberal, #dem, #dnc.

Here are some video primers for those who are new to Twitter:

Added more to the post: suggestions, live links (instead of just URL address text), video primers for newbies.

I wish folks would cool it with the partisan stuff on the FTN twitter. I am getting some complaints from people who support FairTax but do not vote with Republicans.

Remember, we are supposed to be trying to get everyone on board with FairTax.

If you have FairTax in your Twitter account name, keep the focus on FairTax issues, not other issues like healthcare reform, Sotomayor hearings, etc.

You can always create another Twitter account with another email address (e.g., create a new free Gmail account). This way, you can tweet about the FairTax in your "FairTax" named account and tweet to your heart's content about other political issues.

We cannot attract and claim bi-partisan support when we are seen leaning heavily toward a particular party platform.

Between the various FairTax tweeters, we are followed by thousands.

How many followers does FT have on twitter?

I'm not a 'twit' myself (bad pun I know) but think its a great way to get people onboard with learning about it without actually doing anything other than reading the notes.

How do you use a hashtag? What is it? Any hints helpful.

I've got to learn how to use a hashtag. I'm new at twittering.
