* Grassroots Freedom Ride Kick-off Mike McLean mikemclean@...
Mike McLean, he and Carol started 1 ½ years ago. Started at GrassRoots Café, NC. Terry Stockham flew in from Houston to help start off the event. County Sheriff will start the convoy tomorrow. This is a national motorcycle tour 17,000 miles. Will pass through every state. Big meet and greet in Daytona Beach. Wants to get out the word.
Will see Michael Warlick, GA. Lloyd Newsome will recreated the convoy ride. Not limited to bikes. Any vehicle is welcome.
We want as much media as we can. Regular and alternative media.
Mike and Carol will be carrying a white paper comparing taxes.
Go to "events" on FairTaxNation.com for more information.
E-mail Mike McLean at mike@... or carol@... to get information when Mike and Carol are not out riding.
Need to do fundraising to support this. You can sponsor an existing rider, do a walk-a-thon. Mike has an arrangement with NCFairTax.
Will have the FairTax flag. The distribution needs some thought. $10.00 with FairTax on both sides.
Al Ose, Wisconsin, stepped forward to coordinate the distribution of the flags.
$25 to sponsor the ride. Gets you a pin.
Mike has press releases: has flyers. Will send by e-mail.
Other agenda items:
Bill Spillane: add up what the Income Tax costs us, compliance, underground, opportunity costs. Bill will put something together to back that claim up.
Bill reported that Ernie Harper, NM, spent over an hour with Senator Jeff Bingamin (D - NM) to press the FairTax.
Bill spoke to Meg Whitman today - candidate for Governor, CA, will probably win the primary and face Jerry Brown in the fall.
Jim Bennett reported 8 Primary candidates in NJ who will face election next week, June 8, who are supporting the FairTax.
Marilyn reports many FairTax candidates in IL who have made it past their primaries.
The FairTax is catching on!
