Pictured here is Cooper Chu Bennett, 5, handing a FairTax pocket card to a passer-by at the Summit, NJ street fair on October 10, 2010. On his own, Cooper took cards from the holder and passed out well over one hundred of them before he decided he wanted to go wsith his father to visit the train station.
Grandpa thinks Cooper is wise beyond his years, But Cooper did not appreciate the symbolism. His generation is going to bear the brunt of today's fixcal misdeeds, and the FairTax is the way out.
We are revising procedures following the grassroots meeting in Houston. We no longer are hesitating about sending names in to Convio. Our goal is to grow the base tenfold in the next 12-18 months without concern as to the quality of names we are sending in. At least those people start to receive FairTax Friday. They can opt out if they choose. FairTax Friday and the so-called "money bombs" will start to have a softer focus and reflect more human interest. State groups will be able to make more effecitve use of Convio.
The activity at the stand at the Street Fair was brisk throughout the day, and we gathered and sent in 20 names. The warm sunny weather brought out large crowds and good traffic and exposure by the stand.
I would like to thank Tom Sulcer,Tony Schiavo, Ed Vant and Elvira Carillo for helping at the stand. We appear to be gathering momentum for a FairTax support group from Summit and Springfield that responds positively when asked. Because of time considerations, I did not try to organize a seminar following the street fair. I have doubts about its effectiveness anyway. I think stime is better spent on an organizational type of meeting. Training can be offered as needed.
