Grassroots Corner 2/1/19

[Editor’s note: Thank you, Nancy Keesee, for this week’s contribution to Grassroots Corner.]


"THE QUICKEST TOOL IN THE SHED"
By Nancy Keesee
Member of the FAIRtax California Team

Many are true believers.  We know the value of Fair Tax. So what can we do to help the cause? What is the cause? Be seen by the only people who can vote to pass the bill.  How can we make that happen?  Not money out of our pockets?  Something that won’t take but a few minutes of our time? Something that paints a nationwide picture of support for HR25, “The Fair Tax Act of 2019”.
 
Let me introduce you to Popvox.  Begin by clicking on the following link:  https://www.popvox.com/us/federal/bills/116/hr25. This link takes you to the very page where you can support the bill by clicking on SUPPORT.  Follow the prompts.  Once you are recognized as a verified constituent of your congressional representative, you will be asked to write a message to be delivered to your representative.  If you don’t know what to say, you can copy and paste one of the comments at the bottom of the Popvox page where the link in this paragraph takes you.  If you do that, you can still edit the comment to fit your needs.  Popvox will acknowledge your position on the bill and digitally forward your comment to your representative.

I supported the bill and received a response from my Congressman (a form letter of course). 
 
The reason we are doing this as supporters is to turn the map green.  A green map shows the breadth of our support for the bill. Here is how we look as of today (the FAIRtax bill was only introduced earlier last month on January 3):
 


(The one “oppose” orange mark in New York is really a support. Our New Yorker accidently clicked the wrong box.)
 
Here is where we were in 2016, over one year into that session of Congress, let’s get up to that point again - and beyond:
 

 
In 2015-2016  “HR25” was the second most popular federal bill on Popvox.  Look at the number of contributors below (4389). 

 
Please do your part this congress.  We need your support and that of your spouse, children, friends, co-workers ………
 
Remember, there is no cost to you, no having to leave your house, only a moment out of your life, and you have done something which contributes significantly to our collective effort.
