Of all the candidates who have signed the FAIRtax Candidate Pledge, Martin Etwop has perhaps the most compelling story of them all. Born in Uganda, Martin recalls childhood memories of receiving boxes of food marked “Donated by the United States of America”. Church work later brought him to this country where he experienced the peace and freedom that so many Americans take for granted. Martin says he now sees the United States turning into Uganda—something he is determined to stop. That’s why he’s running for Congress, and that’s one of the reasons he supports the FAIRtax.
