The Grassroots: Your Stories and Pictures

We hear a lot of creative ways that FairTax activists tell others about the transformation our nation would experience with the FairTax and thought we should feature their efforts. Get inspired by the images and stories then look for ways to spread the word yourself to the right!

FairTax Visits Family Reunion

"Pat Giannini is the Community Coordinator in Leesburg, Florida.  During the 1st weekend of October, he attended his family reunion.  His passion for the FairTax drove him to ask for time to make a presentation. The dynamics of Pat’s family of 60 adults and 20 children are quite broad: medical professionals, educators, business owners, students, a banker, a corporate pilot and many in the early stages of their careers.

Pat was especially encouraged by the questions asked during the formal presentation. His grandnephew’s attitude changed from not being interested to being put on Pat’s FairTax email list. A lively discussion took place afterwards about the application of the FairTax in their personal lives.

Materials were distributed with some of it now making its way to Pennsylvania, Texas, Georgia and Ohio. Two locations were committed for the card holders, one in Leesburg and one in Vero Beach. More  seeds are planted. Mission accomplished!”

The FairTax Flash in Ohio

The FairTax Flash is a great way to spread the FairTax message. Studies show that the normal individual must hear or see a message seven times before they “recognize” it. By combining the FairTax Flash with signs placed around the community, and the occasional radio ads or PSAs, the FairTax Flash is a media multiplier, making our other efforts just that much more effective. 

And the FairTax Flash works with groups as small as five or six, although larger numbers are better.  Just pick a place with a lot of public foot or vehicle traffic.  Show up for about a half hour or so, and interact with the public as much as circumstances allow, and then disperse (Often to get something to eat or drink.)  You don’t even need to hand anything out, or try and collect signatures.  Your presence is enough to help raise the public consciousness regarding the FairTax.

The FairTax in the News

Cain's tax plan: More than

…Ultimately, Cain wants the country to adopt a Fair Tax. He's not the first presidential candidate to propose it. In 2008, for instance, Mike Huckabee made it a central part of his economic plan.

So what's a Fair Tax exactly?

In essence, it's a national sales tax that would replace the current tax code entirely and all the credits, deductions and exemptions that go along with it. With a national sales tax you would pay federal tax on what you spend rather than on what you earn, save or invest. The idea is to make the tax system less of a hindrance to economic growth…

Fair sales tax is way to pay for what nation needs -

The Fair Tax Plan is a nonpartisan proposal that replaces all federal income and payroll taxes with a single national retail sales tax. It includes a cash rebate "prebate" that ensures no American pays federal taxes on spending for essential goods and services up to the poverty level…

When you bought something new, you would see exactly how much you are paying the federal government on your retail receipt. No more "hidden taxes" in the purchase price. You would choose how much and when to pay federal taxes. You would be taxed only when you buy something new, rather than paying taxes on your income and productivity…
