Entrenched bureaucracies hate change: they feel threatened by it, and indeed they are. The current Senators and Congresspeople have a good thing going in the tax exclusions they can work for their friends and themselves; why should they want to stop that? We must make them understand they WILL NOT be re-elected unless they support the FairTax!

The main stream media promotes things to a large group of the public who will never make a decision on anything and they will not vote.
Let's promote the FairTax to people who are intelligent enough to have read the documents, books and papers and who know how much this country will benefit from FairTAx becoming law.
I believe there is a hugh number of Americans who have no business voting or expressing an opinion, especially about the FairTax.
What about the people who support the FairTax, but are NOT active supporters?

Many people say "Fair Tax ? a good idea
but it will never pass"
If you think you can or can't, you are
Keep the cards & letters going to congress & let them know you will vote
for whoever will promise to push Fair Tax.
Spread the word to friends & neighbors
and attend or start a group in your area

Capitalism is NOT Free Enterprise it is Imperialist control and first cousin to Communism. they control the power the media and the congress. Freee Enterprise eliminates that control.
The Fed'l Income Tax and the Fed'l Reserve are the springboards that implemented the shift of poower to Big Corp and Super wealthy.

We need to push Barack into making a stand on the FairTax issue. I know, I know, we can all assume his answer will be but, it needs to become public. Make him make a stand and the rest will follow suit.
Forget Ron Paul's book. He is merely trying to explain what capitalism is all about. Ayn Rand has better answers why capitalism is morally superior to altruism.

I am the community coordinator in Broken Arrow, Ok. 6 of the 7 Congressman we send to WDC are Sponsors of the Fairtax. Here's how we did it. We worked any event we could- rotary meetings , union meetings booth's at the State Fair etc. to get people to sign the Fairtax petition. Each time someone did, a letter was sent on his behalf to his Congressman explaining that the signer was a supporter of the Fairtax (you can go to the website and do this). Every time one of our Congressman had an open house, we showed up wearing our Fairtax clothes. Frequently we would have 25-50% of the people there and we could dominate the proceedings. We did this with very few people- probably no more than 50- 100 or less-statewide. It is scary/amazing how so few people could make such a large difference. I probably spent no more than 20 hours in a year on the cause for 5 years (there were others who wrked alot harder, plenty who worked less). It was fun! If I am not at work, I am wearing my fairtax clothes. If someone wants to approach me and talk about it, we do. If not, people see my shirt/hat and the more people we have that know about the Fairtax the more people we will have on our side when the time comes. just dont talk about - do a little!
