Twitter Activists Needed
By Glen Terrell
volunteer coordinator for the FairTax “Letters to the Editor” writing team. We
are launching a new Twitter initiative and urgently need your help. We need
every FairTax supporter who Tweets, to be active in this new FairTax Twitter
- On Monday, Wednesday and Friday from
1:00 P.M. to 2:00 P.M. (central time zone), and
- On Tuesday and Thursday from 7:00
P.M. to 8:00 P.M. (central time zone).
we need for as many of you as possible to be Tweeting #FairTax during the above periods, including re-Tweeting
one another’s messages in support of the FairTax.
I also recommend
everyone edit his or her Twitter bio to include this image as your photo.
You can then change it back to your
preferred image at times other than these scheduled hours. With this image appearing
in your bio, everyone will know you are a FairTax supporter, a FairTax Tweeter
and have #FairTax messages for re-Tweeting.
Finally, I recommend that you prepare
several advance Tweets that you can quickly copy and paste, half of these advance Tweets should
be addressed to @RepDaveCamp and other members of the House Committee on Ways
Thank you in
advance for everything you will do for the #FairTax Tweet campaign. We couldn’t
do what we do without you, and I can’t wait to see how we light up the Twitterverse
with the FairTax. Go #FairTax Tweeters

toward a more extensive rewrite of the U.S. code, with more than half of his
party’s members in the House backing proposals to rip up the rules.
More than 125 House Republicans have supported proposals
that include ending the income tax and terminating the entire code in 2018 to
force Congress to create a simpler system. Sixty-eight of them favor what they
call a “fair tax” replacing the income, payroll and estate levies with a
national sales tax. Dozens back estate-tax repeal proposals. A flat-tax bill
has 10 Republicans on board.
Rank-and-file Republicans’ support for bold changes may move

…The tax code threatens liberty. It cannot be
understood by those who must comply with that code or live in fear of penalties
imposed by the IRS. A law that cannot be understood is not a law derived from
the consent of the governed.
If audited, the basic principle of trial by jury is replaced by presumed guilt.
The accused must prove his innocence. The 16th Amendment must be repealed. End
Only FairTax HR25/S122 ends the IRS and supports the repeal of the 16th
Amendment. End direct taxation on jobs and income. Call U.S. Rep. David Camp,
R-Mich., chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, at 202-225-3561.
Demand FairTax HR25 be brought out of committee. End the IRS.
