Keep Bumping this thread FLA/ S.GA MEETUPS take noteSubmitted by Rideronthet on Wed, 01/23/2008 - 14:50
Florida RP supporters needed Sunday Jan 27 in Jacksonville:
Huckabee tries to own the idea of abolishing the IRS--an idea he stole from Ron Paul. We must have more Paul supporters than Huckabee supporters at this event. We need meetups there, all supporters there. What's better than getting rid of the income tax and replacing it with the Fair Tax? How about replacing it with nothing! Freedom!
Below is the email sent to me by FairTax.org (advertising Huckabee's appearance there). A truly fair tax is no tax at all. "As government expands, liberty contracts." - Reagan
Dear FairTax supporters,
The FairTax is about to make history in Florida, and you need to be there.
This Sunday, January 27 join thousands of your fellow FairTax supporters for a major "Rock the Boat" rally at the Jacksonville Landing. Our timing is critical: Sunday’s rally is two days before the crucial Florida primary where, the presidential race could not be tighter. Four candidates are in a statistical dead heat. Strong FairTax support will make the difference in the race here, and that could help drive outcome on Super Tuesday the following week.
This issue is important that we hope you'll make every effort to attend, even if you're not local. Because if the candidates know you'll drive 10 hours for a FairTax rally, they know you'll travel five minutes to vote for those who support the FairTax.
Our "Rock the Boat" rally will feature music, entertainment, and FairTax speakers. All of the major candidates have been invited to attend, with Gov. Mike Huckabee already confirming he’ll be there.
Here's what you need to know to sign-up for the "Rock the Boat" Rally now:
Date and time: Sunday, January 27th, 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Location: Jacksonville Landing, (Jacksonville, FL)
How to attend: Reserve your free tickets online now
Please note, while this event is free to attend, but it's not free to organize. We need your generous financial support to help cover the estimated $4,000 setup costs, so please consider an extra contribution when making your reservation.
As you know, the FairTax has become a major issue in the 2008 race thanks to your support. Our huge rally successes in Columbia, South Carolina and Ames, Iowa last year were absolute game changers, drawing national interest to the FairTax, and helping generate support in Washington, and at the grassroots level.
Sunday's "Rock the Boat" FairTax rally will prove to be the same, and could be decisive in the 2008 presidential race. But we need you there to help make history. Together, we'll bring tax freedom to the Sunshine State, and beyond.
See you in Jacksonville!
