Job “One”: Bringing our supporters together!

Posted By Donald Koop, Wednesday, April 11, 2018

In the aftermath of last year’s tax “reform,” Americans for Fair Taxation (AFFT), designers of the FAIRtax version of a consumption tax, determined that a new method was required to promote it.  The goal is to bring promotion of the tax plan and recruitment/connection of supporters together under one entity.

This FAIRtax USA platform is the attempt to fill that need. AFFT has amassed a list of supporters and their contact information which, over the years, has become of unknown value. Development of the platform is combined with a renewed effort to validate the database information.

Long-time supporters need to be newly- and better-motivated as we strive to replace the “reform,” that was basically a tax cut, with real reform: a consumption-based tax. 

Equally important is the need to recruit and organize large numbers of newly-committed supporters.  They need to be contacted, if feasible, and urged to join FAIRtax USA.  In addition, we all have friends, families, colleagues, and acquaintances who are sick of having to deal with income-based taxes.

Currently, FAIRtax USA is a relatively empty platform.  Filling it up is the job for all of us: One. By. One.  Only then can we go about creating “boots on the ground” in sufficient numbers in as many congressional districts as possible.

In my next blog I’ll highlight the key points I have made in the prior nine posts.

The views expressed in this blog are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of Americans for Fair Taxation.

This post does not open properly. To read the whole thing, go to "Links" under "Quick Links", then click on "Simply. Tax. Us." under "Blogs."  I'm interested in your thoughts!

Why don't they open up properly?! That is kind of crazy. Have you pursued the problem?

Yes, with Kyle Clark, Chief Administrator of the platform. He hasn't been able to solve it yet.
