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

Recentlly met with a hostory professor at my college campus. After my conversation with him, I felt that we have a good start towards establishing afair tax coilition in ontario and shelby.In the fall He willallow one of our representatives to comeinto his class,give an explanation of what the fair tax is and debate the appossing view and answer the questions posed by students afterwords. This is an awesomeoppertunity and it will be our chance to generate interest for the fair tax on campus which may eventally allow us to give a campus wide presentation of it and eventually establish a student club for the fair tax. This will allow us to use campus recourcesfor radio broadcasting, event organizing,etc...

In shelby I plan to schedule the first fair tax meeting for next month.The editor of the shelby dailyglobe has already agreed to list the event in the localpaper and my goal with her, since the paper can not print articles based on opinion, will be to invite the shelby dailyglobe and the news journal to come to view the event and ask questions based on the event itself.

We talk so much about the means by which is best to broadcast the fair tax (radion,television, flyers etc..),but lets not forget to plan out our audience. For example, when speaking to democrats about the fair tax I would emphasise the revenue nuetrality of the fair tax, untaxing those below the poverty line, job creation,cealing up the taxcode etc.. With rebublicans I would emphasize the reduction in government compliance and pressure to reduce spending,job creation, compatability that the fair tax will bring. Before your meeting with the group starts, walk in andintroduce yourself individually to as many as you can, tell a joke and break the ice.

Remember that most have heard many different people telling them that they have the solution to our economic ills and they are sick of it so try to present yourself as a human being rather than a tax consultant. Ha ha ha... I would strongly urge you to go to every meeting, write every letter and hold every conversation about the fair tax with purpose. When I talked to a history professor recently he asked me "What do you want me to do with this"? He didn't want to hear just a rabling on and on... he wanted purpose in what I was trying to convince him of. Speakwith purpose, answer with wisdom and articulatewith grace.

Colossians 4:6
Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.

Does anyone else have any points on how to present the fair tax?

This is great. The more penetration we can get onto college campi, particularly before the 2010 elections, the more impact the FairTax can have on how the critical college-age demographic votes.

Use the KISS principal.

1. Tell them what taxes it would replace, income, social security, medicare, estate, corporate, alternative minimum, etc.

2. Let them know about the prebate (a tax return the first of every month, before you pay any taxes in) and how it would untax all legal households spending up to the poverty level.

3. Go to the simplicity of the system, no more forms to fill out, records to keep, unless your a registered business, just pay the tax at the checkout counter, take your goods and go home.

The above comments are basic truths about the FairTax as I understand it. There is much speculation such as, the trillions of dollars in off shore accounts coming home, the businesses opening up here, the boom in the economy. I would support the FairTax on points 1,2, & 3, and if any of the other speculations come true, which I believe they would, thats just icing on the cake.
