Facebook for FairTax plus FairTax on Radio!
The media has been talking about Facebook for years, but do you know how you can use it to enact the FairTax?
Social networking can be found on multiple websites but Facebook is the most popular for sharing information with friends and family.
You might be surprised at how many people around you use Facebook to regularly communicate. In fact, it now enjoys over 800 million active users with more than half of those users logging into the site at least once daily. The average user has 130 friends and there are 900 million things like fan pages, events and groups that people interact with! That's a lot of people who can find out about the FairTax!
Consider your potential to recruit new FairTax supporters among your Facebook friends! Now combine that with the nearly 100,000 fans of FairTax.org and you can see our opportunity.
Yesterday, Facebook activists demonstrated how quickly they could tell others about the FairTax. We posted the picture below and asked 500 fans to share it with all their friends. As of today, over 1,400 FairTaxers took up the challenge and around 180,000 friends of FairTax supporters saw one reason why they should support our cause! Now that's impressive. Thank you!
We're moving forward in the knowledge that neither this administration or the previous embraced the FairTax. It's up to us to keep educating those around us!

Herman Cain does not believe that his 9-9-9 Plan is the best long-term choice for the U.S. Tax Code. Surprised? It's right there on his website. The pizza magnate and Republican Presidential candidate sees his triple-9 proposal as an interim fix and advocates another tax plan entirely for the long run. Vows Cain at hermancain.com: "Amidst a backdrop of the economic renewal created by the 9-9-9 Plan, I will begin the process of educating the American people on the benefits of continuing the next step to the Fair Tax."..
Why doesn't Cain go straight to the FairTax, if he thinks it's a better solution? Richard Lowrie, Cain's adviser on economic issues, responds in an e-mail saying, "The country is tired of economists passing up something great, while they hold out for their own view of perfect, and in doing so, sentence the country to more of the same." The tax plan that sounds like a pizza price is, evidently, not going away…
