The FairTax Dare to be Fair Rally in Columbia, SC,
from an 8 year old's perspective
Political change in the United States is guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution in the First Amendment. The First Amendment says:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
The First Amendment allows people to gather peaceably to change the way government makes laws that govern us (the People).
We are able to gather in places like our homes, schools, and even a large stadium where political leaders will hear our voices. The FairTax rally had over 8,000 people attend.
The people who gather to make the political change must try to hold their events when their leaders will listen to their message. The FairTax rally was held during the 2008 presidential debate.
Sometimes the people of the United States must gather to let a “government of the people, by the people, for the people” know they are not happy, and the government must change or the people will find new political leaders. The FairTax rally wants the politicians to make taxes fair for all the people.
My favorite part of the rally was meeting a very famous and special person,
