Nationwide Tax Free Tips Act CanvassSubmitted by FreedomLover on Fri, 10/05/2007 - 00:13
Fellow Ron Paul activists: As part of the Nationwide Meetup agenda, I would like to suggest the following mission as a tremendous opportunity. We have all seen this idea as being one of the most important opportunities to fall in our laps. Now we will go national!

When? Sunday October 14th, 2007.
Here is what a member of my group in Bakersfield CA suggested and we followed suit with scheduling it:
Well, I did a test today and gave out the TaxFreeTipsAct flier (see the files section) to all the restaurants and pizza joints in and near the Northwest Promenade...
It was an overwhelming success! I went to around 10 different places and only one (Mauricio's) did not accept the flier. Everyone else was very receptive and generally excited at having the opportunity to keep all their tips tax-free.
Therefore, I propose to distribute the flier to EVERY restaurant, pizza place, bar, and other places with tipping in town. Think of the impact this could have with minimal effort. I spent no more than 30 seconds at any one place and covered them all within 30 minutes or so. This was my basic approach:
"Hello, I'm just dropping in to inform you that there is legislation being proposed in Congress that would make tips tax-free. Since service-sector employees rely heavily on the tips they receive and would likely support this act, I hope that you can post this somewhere in your break room or kitchen for them to read."
That's all it takes. Sometimes they'll ask a few questions and that provides a good opportunity to bring up Ron Paul and his Presidential bid. I find it appropriate to leave him out of the initial push because it makes the flier seem more relevant and less politically motivated.
So, who would be willing to help me distribute this flier across town? This is a tremendous task, but with some good organization and planning it is certainly doable, and I believe that at this point it would be the most effective tactic in creating support for Ron Paul.
Post a comment here if you will be scheduling this meetup! Let us know what you think. And, let us know your results if you test it out, or have! Keep it on top, and it will happen, it will go national, it will get passed! Ron Paul will be our Prez! Good luck, and God speed!

MyKill has inspired us to participate in the Nationwide Tax Free Tips Act Canvass. We have endless restaurants and other service industry businesses to spread the message with!
We will meet, form groups, and knock out as many streets of service industry businesses in the town. The focus will be restaurants, but other tipping careers such as taxi drivers and strippers even would love to find out about this great opportunity to reduce government transfer of wealth for themselves.
Well, it is simple. Lets meet and take charge of certain locations. The instructions are simple. Introduce the act, ask them to post it, and any other questions that arise, answer them. All we have to do is tell them about the Tax Free Tips Act and the Ron Paul rEVOLutionaries will follow.
If this time period does not work for you, please make recommendations.
Reminder, every two weeks, the 50,000+ meetup activists for Dr. Paul will be meeting and carrying out multiple missions. We will meet every two weeks. Attendance is mandatory at as many events as possible!
