District of Columbia Fair Tax Roundtable
- To all: I was delighted to note on this morning's report that we have
now exceeded 5,000 members nationwide in our 50 state FairTax groups.
2004 is going to be a tremendous year for us, since were started the
year with (I would guess) fewer than 10 state groups totaling
probably less than 500 members. We have volunteers sending out
invitations to join to anyone filling out an online petition. Sam
Wright tells me that about 10% of petition signers subscribe to their
respective state chat group. Petitions are therefore one of our best
sources to build support and group membership.
This is what you can do to help: Go to
Print out a few petitions and keep them with you for that
unsuspecting supporter that you have been telling about the Fair Tax
for weeks now. Have them sign the petition. This is KEY, take it to
your computer and enter the info with their information. Tell them
that they will be receiving an Invitation to join a State Yahoo
Group. If they are unfamiliar with Yahoo brief them.
We have had great recent success in getting media personalities' and
elected officials' attention (such as Senator Grassley). Much of that
success is due to the increasing ability to link together large
numbers of our supporters electronically through these Yahoo! groups.
It is by far the most efficient and effective way to disseminate
information rapidly, which has always been our biggest challenge.
