      As you write a FairTax letter, state your premise in the first couple sentences.  Point up one or more of the FairTax selling points.  Back up your FairTax remarks with reasonable arguments.  Wrap up your letter with a closing statement.  Include www.fairtax.org somewhere in the text.
      Keep everything polite and professional.  You'll stand a much better chance of being published.

      The NBER is a heavyweight organization.  The Kotlikoff / Jokisch article from NBER carries a lot of weight. 
      Quote from the article freely to make your point (always giving due credit to the authors and National Bureau of Economic Research).

      recent Editor's Reply : "Raising revenue from a flat tax, like that proposed by HR25, to balance a bloated budget, will cause a revolution�which is why the only way to knock out Democrat supremacy is this legislative one-two punch. "
      The editor is on the right track with the suggestion about HR25.  He might need more information about HR25 to ensure his understanding that, yes, FairTax is a flat tax but that it applies only to consumption.    
      He might also need to be led to understand that fixing one thing at a time is the only viable approach.. and FairTax must come first. 
      Many of the other problems will sort themselves out once FairTax is in place.

      Makes the very reasonable point that "companies will locate where they have the greatest competitive advantage." 
      FairTax will apply that truth to the entire country.  FairTax will make America will be the best place in the world from which to run a business.  Global businesses will figure that out very quickly.  FairTax will drive business growth and job growth in America through the roof.
