Grassfire.org Action Alert
The FairTaxScorecard.com calls for supporters to contact Grassfire.org at http://grassfire.org/email.asp?YearEnd=1&Ind=12 and voice your interest in the Fair Tax. Grassfire.org is seeking suggestions for their 2006 strategic planning. They are basically asking us what is important. Tell them to promote the FairTax more. They have positively mentioned the FairTax in the past but nowhere near the level of other issues.
We need to tell them:
â€œThe Fair Tax is certainly just as important, if not more important, than the other issues Grassfire.org promotes. However, I have seen minimal support and mention of the FairTax from your mailings and on your website. I suggest that your organization become familiar with the NY Times #1 Best selling “FairTax Book” and also the contents on www.FairTax.org such as the economist’s endorsement letter and all of the research papers. A previous book â€œAmerica’s Best Kept Secret: Fairtaxâ€ by Al Ose also provides excellent data on the Fair Tax. This is an outstanding issue very well suited to the grass roots arena as congress will never pass such an aggressive tax reform on there own.â€
Grassfire.org is a user supported site and they are big on asking for donations in their newsletters. Let them know that your contributions are solely based on how much they promote the FairTax.
Every one of us needs to fill out this form, and tell them that you want them to promote the FairTax in 2006! Be sure to provide your city, address, and phone number so your response gets the full consideration it deserves. This is no time to remain anonymousâ€”fully backup your Fair Tax comments with your name and contact information.
Floridians have posted the majority of the 1000 or so comments. Congratulations to Florida. However, Fair Tax is not a one state issue and grassfire will demand support from states across the nation. The best way to do this is to; first post your own request, and; second, contact a family member from another state and have them post their support also.
One thousand, messages is a noticeable turnout. However, considering the 600,000 plus Fair Tax petition signers, the current level of response is bordering on patheticâ€”we can do better. We must all:
1. Click on this link and post your comments or the above quoted text, include all of your contact information.
2. Contact a family member from another state and have them do the same.
One final task is to forward this message (http://www.fairtaxblog.com/20051222/grassfireorg-action-alert/). Post a link to your states Fair Tax yahoo group or other forums if this issue has not already been announced. Pass a link of this message to your friends and family in all states.
Viva la Fair Tax
