It's that time again!

The Grassroots Movement


As we grow throughout the country, new faces from new places will be posted, along with folks who’ve worked for years to make the FairTax a reality. These features will serve as a big “thank you” to our supporters, but will also serve as inspiration and a conduit for successful ideas to advocates across the country. Click on the Volunteer Network link in the left navigation and you will be given a direct line into the grassroots network, or e-mail us through the GRASSROOTS e-mail address and we’ll get you started.

Advocating for the FairTax shouldn’t be just another job, it should be a passion and it should be fun! While attending the first two big FairTax rallies, we had the opportunity to meet many of our members face-to-face. We were excited to see such wonderful diversity and the enthusiastic ways people expressed their feelings through T-shirts, signs, and even paint on their cars! Since the FairTax cuts across political and demographic lines, we added the Just for Fun section as a place for “Fair Taxers” to put up our feet, share a chuckle, and get to know one another.

Without our diligence and hard work we all will continue to suffer under an overwhelming, unjust, abused tax code. Thankfully, we have thousands and thousands of volunteers already in the trenches, working every day to further the FairTax. Join us!

I'd be much more in favor of a flat tax rather than the fair tax proposal. The idea of paying 31% to 38% combined federal, state and local sales taxes on a new car does not appeal to me. A 25K purchase turns into a 35K purchase. I do understand why the fair tax appeals to some but given my current tax situation, it would cost me more and cause me to spend less and delay purchases that I would otherwise make.

Jim, you need to read the fair tax book. A 25K car after the fair tax is enacted probably would no longer cost you 25K. Just read the book and then make an informed decision for or against!
