If you tuned in to WAOK Atlanta, 1380 AM (a CBS affiliate) on Wednesday, July 4, 2018, you would have heard our President, Steve Hayes, being interviewed by Civil Rights Attorney and Radio Talk Show Host, Robert Patillo. In case you missed it, the nine and a half-minute segment is available by clicking on, or pasting, the following link: 

Patillo’s show, People, Passion and Politics, is a fast-paced radio show focusing on areas affecting the African-American community, including but not limited to wealth empowerment, political reform and personal actualization. Patillo thanked Steve for calling in on July 4 because, as Patillo observed, “One of the things that the ‘founding’ was about was about getting away from taxes, getting away from the economic tyranny of England, but then it took about 100 years or 130 years, and we got right back into taxation, to the economic tyranny by the elites.” Patillo then asked “What is FAIRtax doing to try to get us back to those founding roots?” Hayes replied, “What we’re looking at is going back to what the original founders wanted, which is a taxation system that is self-correcting, meaning that if the tax rates became too high, people didn’t pay it. And the way you do that besides being a criminal is you have taxes on items of consumption.” 

We got the engagement through Joshua Delano of Houston, Texas. If you need help getting on the air in your local area, please let Steve Hayes,, or me know. Josh’s rates are reasonable.


What makes a perfect birthday gift? Nothing can be better than tickets to the Huckabee Show at Trinity Music City in Hendersonville (near Nashville), Tennessee! Christine and I are going on Friday, August 3, 2018. Join us! Tickets are free, except for a $1 service fee. Go to and at “Find Your Next Event” fill in Huckabee Show in Hendersonville TN, USA. Just follow the prompts and directions from there. 

Let me know if you are going. If enough of us sign up for the August 3, 2018 show, the Governor may call us up onto the stage. 

If you are not going to the show but are located along our way, we would be delighted to have coffee with you. We leave Summit NJ either on August 1 or August 2 and take Interstate 78 to Harrisburg PA. We pick up Interstate 81, cross slivers of Maryland and West Virginia and follow 81 down the Western border of Virginia through Roanoke on into Knoxville TN. From Knoxville we take Interstate 40 to just outside Nashville TN.


         We need your pictures and news. If you have anything to share, please send your material to me at, or text me at (908) 578-4975. When others see your activity, they are inspired, and the process snowballs. When the process snowballs, Congress Members and Senators and, yes, even the President start to listen.
