One candidate embraces FairTax in debate! Thanks for making the FairTax rally absolute success!

Wow!!! You guys did it!!! The FairTax rally was a huge success in Columbia S.C. last night. News reports estimate the numbers between 7,000 to 9,000 people were there.

Not the 10,000 I wanted, but it got the job done! It drew lots of media attention and the attention of the Republican candidates.

Tom Tancredo and Duncan Hunter and Governor Mike Huckabee all 2008 presidential candidates who not only made an appearance at the rally, but unequivocally endorsed the FairTax.

Mike Huckabee actually embraced the FairTax during the debate. The others did not, so as of now Mike Huckabee has my vote.

McCain staffers questioned some FairTax supporters about how they got there, thinking that they had been bussed in. They seemed impressed that most of the people there had driven to Columbia on their own, some from more than a 1,000 miles away.

There is no doubt that this rally last night had an effect. The crowd was so large that it cannot be ignored. You have put the FairTax on the National stage.
When I first started promoting this FairTax I never thought it would make it as far as it has as quickly as it has and it is all because of people like you.
Just goes to show that grass roots efforts can still accomplish things in politics. The two big presences in Columbia last night were the presidential candidates and the FairTax.

Thanks so much for the sacrifice you made to get there.
One last comment on this. I mentioned it got lots of media attention. However some media outlets stated opinions from critics that are just flat out lies.
The link above ends the story with this lie, "Critics of the national sales tax say it puts a larger burden on the poor, who often need to spend all of their income on necessities."
Not true, the FairTax is the only tax reform plan that completely lifts the tax burden off the poor because nobody pays taxes on spending up to the poverty level.
That's right you actually get a check every month up to the poverty level with the FairTax so that the neccessities of life are not taxed.
