The FairTax Rally


Tags Taxes and Spending

I attended a "Tax Day rally" today (Tuesday the 17th) here in Pensacola, Florida, sponsored by the local FairTax people. What was I, one who has written against the FairTax here, here, here, here, and here, doing at a FairTax rally? I received an e-mail from the "Community Coordinator for Americans for Fair Taxation" here in Pensacola. The e-mail thanked me for signing the FairTax petition (which I, of course, never signed) and invited me to come by the main post office at 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday for a "Tax Day rally." I showed up at 3:00 and met the "Community Coordinator for Americans for Fair Taxation" and gave him copies of some of my Mises.org articles against the FairTax. There were three people there and perhaps seven FairTax signs. Some rally!
