We are creating an army of Citizens to bombard our elected officials at the federal and state levels, with the same postcard, over and over, until our message is heard loud and clear: "We want The Fair Tax -- We want The Fair Tax NOW -- We want The Fair Tax AS WRITTEN". When we have "enough" Citizens, we will unleash our army to begin the postcard bombardment!

Operation: Off The Fence! (OOTF) is the only vehicle that will coordinate citizens in all 50 states to send the same simple message demanding The Fair Tax Act of 2013 (H.R. 25 / S. 122)

Click here to add your name to our list to be notified of when to begin the bombardment!

Just think- a REVOLUTION from the privacy of your own home!  Without even having to dust off the old musket!
 

Citizens are gearing up for our postcard bombardment -- and only the Citizen (YOU) can make The Fair Tax happen.

Just think - When we have participants in all 50 states and unleash the postcard bombardment, ALL state and federal legislators will know of The Fair Tax Act of 2013!

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot." - Mark Twain, Notebook, 1904

Fair Tax Advocates - ONLY the powerful voices of CITIZENS speaking in UNISON can make The Fair Tax happen.  Their voices must be stronger and more persistent than any in 50 years.  That movement was to secure rights for blacks; this movement is to secure rights for ALL Americans. 

Fellow Citizens - We hate to be the bearer of bad news - but there is no knight in shining armor riding a great steed, nor avenger righting the wrongs brought by our current tax code, nor superhero delivered to us from legends past for us to look to.  This is something we must collectively do OURSELVES. WE are the ones we've been waiting for.

If you want The Fair Tax NOW, join our postcard bombardment list.  Are you willing to accept any thing less?  The choice is yours. 

Once the bombardment begins, every individual in every household should send his/her own set of 8 postcards EVERY Sunday.  If you forget or are indisposed, send them Monday (or whenever).  But send them!!!

P.S. Every household with more than one person should be sending multiple sets of 8.

As Americans For Fair Taxation (AFFT) in Houston targets those on their way to Washington, we, the ground troops, target those already in Washington (as well as state officials). This two-front attack WILL result in passage of The FAIR TAX, AS WRITTEN!


FAIR TAX advocates will force their elected officials to address The FAIR TAX by ensuring all communication arrives weekly! This is a fast, easy, and very low cost strategy to make our voices heard loud and clear from all across the country!

 

Once we begin sending postcards, every week, without fail, 8 elected officials will be the “target” of our strategy.

The 4 federal “targets” are: 

·       Both of your US Senators

2

·      Your US Representative

+1

·       Chairman of the House Ways and Means  

+1
  = 4

 

The strategy, once our postcard bombardment begins:

 ·         Every Sunday:

Mail official OPERATIONOFFTHEFENCE.ORG  Postcards to each target’s Washington DC office.  Be sure to place your name and return address on the postcards to validate them.  You will need Acrobat Reader® to view or print our postcard (you can download it free here). Click on the postcard below, load your printer with 8.5"x11" cardstock (available at discount and office supply stores), choose "file", then "print" from the browser toolbar.

P.S. The Postcards are the ultimate weapon.  U.S.P.S MUST deliver!

Want to send an additional fax, or email?  Feel free - Same message.

Want to make an additional phone call or a personal visit?  Feel free - Same message:

 “We Want The FAIR TAX! We Want The FAIR TAX NOW! We Want The FAIR TAX, AS WRITTEN (H.R. 25 - S. 122)! GO TO OperationOffTheFence.org TO LEARN MORE.”

Add a short personal note below this primary message if you wish.  

Why do we use Postcards?  Simple, EASY, and visible to all who handle them.  AND, since it is not in an envelope, it won't be held up in the “anthrax mill.”

If you think this much contact with your public servants is “overkill”, we urge you to reconsider. This must become habit, every Sunday, 52 weeks a year. They must be bombarded!  (Don't believe us?  Consider public clamor for enforcement of current immigration laws - where has it gotten us?)

Friendly persuasion will not work with the "Plutocratic Oligarchy" now in DC, so we will hit them HARD!  We will hit them OFTEN!

Friendly persuasion didn't work with the civil rights movement - did it? However, large displays of citizens did.  Just like it didn't work with King George (see the 3rd paragraph from the end of the Declaration of Independence).  We have been told one communication to a public servant is the same as a thousand.  Why?  Because the public servants know for every communication, there are 999 others who feel the same way, but WON'T communicate. 

 

Hey!  Is this EASY or what?

 

 OK! Let's do it again, at the State and Local levels this time! - Remember, the states are essential for the repeal of the 16th amendment.


The 4
STATE AND LOCAL "targets" are:

·       Your Governor

1

·      Your State Senator

+1

·       Your State Representative

+1

·       Your property appraiser

+1
  = 4

 (Our Property Appraiser actually showed up to support The Fair Tax at our local post office April rally!)

 

The strategy, once our postcard bombardment begins:

·         EVERY Sunday:

Mail official OperationOffTheFence.org  Postcards to each target’s office.  Be sure to place your name and return address on the postcards to validate them.  You will need Acrobat Reader® to view or print our postcard (you can download it free here).

Remember, The Postcards are the ultimate weapon.  U.S.P.S Must deliver!

 

Once you are notified (by email) to begin sending postcards, do not be afraid to become a nuisance; the squeaky wheel gets the grease! Do not let up - the FOUNDERS didn't.

You can find contact information for your state level public servants in the blue pages of your telephone book (you’ll have to know your State district numbers). Or, visit http://www.ncsl.org/public/leglinks.cfm click on your state in the left box, and click on “home page” in the right box. Once your state home page comes up, look for links to find your legislators, or use the search box. In some cases the “kid’s page” is helpful.

TIME SAVING TIPS:

a)    Bookmark your state legislator pages online.

b)   Create a sheet of address labels for your targets, and for yourself, then just peel and stick to your postcards each week (easy to do in MS Word, with purchased blank labels - You can download a template wizard at Avery.com).  

 Contact everyone you know (as well as those you don't know), and send them to OPERATIONOFFTHEFENCE.ORG to learn more. Here are some promotional cards and a flyer to hand out.   We recommend standard perforated business card stock. (Available at Wal-Mart and local office supply stores.)

Please let us know if you will be participating in OPERATION: OFF THE FENCE; remember to tell us your state and US House district number. Your email will be kept in strict confidence, will not be sold or shared, and you will NOT be solicited for donations.

 When elected officials see that We the People are willing and capable of launching an efficient, coordinated, and persistent campaign, we will have The FAIR TAX, AS WRITTEN, at ALL levels of government, sooner than you think!!!

And remember - their party affiliation is IRRELEVANT!
