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
"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

the FairTax Flash works with groups as small as five or six, although larger
numbers are better. Just pick a place
