SAVE OUR ECONOMY RALLY Wednesday, April 15th 2009
Columbia, South Carolina
NEAL BOORTZ MIKE HUCKABEE
THIS EVENT IS GROWING BY THE DAY !!!
SCFairTax.Org and AFFT (Americans For Fair Taxation)will Co-Host this event to promote the FairTax concept nationally and to introduce the SC
FairTax Act which we plan to introduce in the legislature this year.
will be held at the Township Auditorium, 1703 Taylor St., Columbia, SC
29201 on April
15th, 2009. The doors will open at 4:30, with the event starting at
5:30 and will conclude by 7:00 PM.
The event will highlight
presentations by Gov. Mike Huckabee and talk show host Neal Boortz, with other
national and state dignitaries that will be announced as their schedules are
confirmed. This rally is scheduled to coincide with the Legislative session and
is intended to send a strong and clear signal to all SC 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.
Please mark your calendars now to
make the trip to Columbia. We need volunteers to be
transportation coordinators for those wanting to carpool or, if there are enough
from any given city, obtain a bus for transportation to and from the Rally.
Parking is somewhat limited at the Auditorium, so shuttle service will be
provided to and from off site parking. Volunteers will also be needed for
collecting donations for promotional items, decorating, refreshments for our
featured speakers, phone calls, letters and talk show calls to promote the
This event will be the biggest single effort ever to build our base in
area so that we may effectively shepherd the SC FairTax Act through the
Legislative process. Now is the time for all FairTax supports in South Carolina to put
forth renewed financial support and any time they can contribute to make this a
huge success. Please let me know how you feel you may best
Concurrently, our leaders are asking
FairTax supporters in each media market that can't make the trip to Columbia to give a couple
of hours on April 15th to hold a rally at a post office in their
market. Local leaders will identify the Post Office for the rally, obtain
permits where necessary, and distribute signs for the rally. Specific details
will be provided as soon as they are confirmed.

Now is the time for each of us to step up and take the lead in getting the FairTax passed!
Thanks to all the FairTax Volunteers
that showed up at the Lowcountry Republican Breakfast Saturday morning at
Kelly's BBQ in Ladson. There were a lot of white FairTax Shirts throughout the
audience, and many more sporting FairTax stickers. We gave out dozens of bumper
stickers and fact cards, and spoke with many attendees about the
AN INCREDIBLE EVENT !
Although this was the Dorchester County Republican Breakfast - There were Many Legislators in attendance from EVERY corner of the state, and the Fair Tax supporters in attendance made a loud and obvious statement to all of them! WE ARE MAKING INCREDIBLE PROGRESS !!
For those who were unable to make
the event, there were a few developments of note. Republican National
Committeeman Glen McCall accepted my invitation to appear at the April
He also stated that the FairTax would be an issue that
the Republican Party could use to establish itself as leading with solutions to
help regain national prominence.
Also at the meeting, Ms. Karen
Floyd, and Mr. Kevin Hall, two of the three announced candidates for Chairman of
the SC GOP told me that they supported the FairTax and would endorse it. (ifelected, this would mean that the LEADER of the Republican Party in South Carolina would be a Fair Tax supporter).
continue to ask all three candidates for the SCGOP Chair about their position on
the FairTax. The public endorsement of the FairTax by our state GOP Chair
candidates can really help move some those existing undecided Legislators off
the fence and into our camp.
Sen. Larry Grooms, our Primary
sponsor of the SC FairTax Act in the SC Senate has accepted our invitation to
appear at the Rally on April 15th. We will need volunteers to help
set up and pack up at the rally as well as to coordinate various functions
before and during the event. Paid staff at the Township Auditorium will handle
many functions, but we will need to help out.
Please contact your local FairTax
leaders about travel plans to attend the Rally, and any time or other support
that you can furnish. Your help is appreciated.
Together, we will make the FairTax
in SC a reality.
