36Nationwide tax day protests
- Mar 15, 2005Greetings everyone,
Tax day is coming soon, and so is the Free State
Project's objective of reaching 20,000 members in
2006. To achive that FSP goal and liberty in our
lifetimes, we need the help of all our members. Kate
Rick has come up with the idea of a coordinated effort
in every state to have a tax day protest and
recruiting event. We need volunteers from each state
to organize the event for their area. That would
involve letting people in the area know that it's
happening, and obtaining FSP materials to hand out.
We will have those materials available for any who
volunteer to hold a protest. It can be just one
person from each state! Last year in Dallas we had a
dozen out protesting at the main post office. People
are mad about having to pay taxes, mad about dealing
with the awful post office. It's a great time to give
them an alternative--a Free State!
Kate Rick who is organizing this project sent the
I and others are working to organize tax day protests
across the country to publicize the FSP. Every bit of
activism will help--banners, ads, gimmicks, fliers,
t-shirts, standing outside of post offices, the IRS...
Who is willing to go protest? (This can be in your own
town, we can organize multiple groups, we can try for
one big one--the form matters a lot less than the
Who will paint and hang highway banners?
Who has contacts with other anti-tax groups? (Anyone
from your local LP to specific income tax crusaders or
people I haven't thought of--what are they doing? Can
we participate while wearing FSP t-shirts or handing
out FSP information?)
Those are just three possible ways to do this. There
are a million others--last year, Adam and I handed out
cookies and FSP fliers at our local post office.
Bribery works. ;)
This is a golden opportunity--one of those rare times
when a huge number of people in the country are doing
the same thing, and we have the opportunity to get
their attention. Out of those millions, there
are 14,000 who will want to join us. Let's let them
know we exist.
