Media, and particularly Social Media, is one of the three legs of our stool. The other two are contact with candidates and our elected representatives and grassroots development and activity. President Obama’s first run for the Presidency underscored the power of Social Media.
Marketing and Communications Team Co-Chair, Randy Fischer, explains how each of us can help make the FAIRtax more effective on Social Media. Randy writes:
“Nearly everyone today has one or more social media accounts. Many use them to connect with old classmates, friends and former coworkers. You can exchange photos of children and grandchildren as easily as you can find and exchange recipes, and your public policy views.

“So how can you expand your social media to support and promote FAIRtax? Here are some ways:

  1. Expand your network by sending out some friend requests or looking for people/groups to “follow” on Twitter;
  2. Go go, “follow” the page and hit “Like”, “Love”, “Wow” or any of the reaction options on every post, then hit “Share”, add a comment and set the “button” from “Friends” to public. Add a comment to the post or reply to comments already on the post.
  3. Go on Twitter to @FairTaxOfficial and hit “♥️” to support the post and then hit “retweet” to send the post out to people who follow you on Twitter.
  4. Comment and reply to comments but keep it focused on education and not argument. Set up a list of “links” you can copy and paste in to your comment or reply such as:
                    d. What is FAIRtax animation
                    e. What is the Prebate animation
                    f. FAIRtax USA join at

      5. Find the social media pages or accounts of your Congressman and Senator and if possible ask them about support of FAIRtax (or lack of it) in reply to posts.

“Remember your goal is to educate and persuade. Report your success to the Grassroots Coordinator Jim Bennett at or Find both of us on Facebook and reach out with a message and friend request. Social media is truly multilevel marketing. You can double, triple, and quadruple your impact when friends of friends and friends of their friends share a post. See you on social media.”

Thank you, Randy, for contributing this information.
