The FairTax is an idea whose time has come, and the drumbeats are getting louder. On April 15, in Columbia, South Carolina those drumbeats are going to be heard all over the U.S.
SCFairTax.org and AFFT(Americans For Fair Taxation) will co-host a FairTax “Save the Nation” Rally at the Township Auditorium located at 1703 Taylor Street in Columbia, SC. The doors will open at 4:30 PM, with the event starting at 5:30 and concluding by 7:00 PM. Reservations are free, required, and can be made here: FairTax.org.
There will be a number of FairTax All-Stars appearing at this event including GOP presidential candidate and Fox TV host, Gov. Mike Huckabee, Neal Boortz, radio host of The Neal Boortz Show and co-author of the FairTax books, and Ken Hoagland, National Communications Director from Americans for Fair Taxation, and many more (final schedule and speaker list is still being finalized).
The goal for this event is to bring national attention to the FairTax concept and to introduce the South Carolina FairTax Act which will be introduced in the legislature this year. This rally is scheduled to coincide with the Legislative session and is intended to send a strong and clear signal to all South Carolina Legislators that the citizens of South Carolina demand true tax reform in the form of new FairTax legislation, not just minor tinkering with the current convoluted and illogical accumulation of laws and regulations.
Fund raising is underway to generate enough money to air four weeks of radio broadcasts prior to the event. Options for other media are being explored as well.
Given the current state of our economy this event may well be the tipping point of the FairTax movement. Make plans now to attend this potentially historical event.
