The following is from Americans For Fair Taxation Volunteer Jim Bennett.
I attended this reception at the invitation of Ken Kurson, Chief Operating Officer and Deputy Campaign Manager Rudy Giuliani Presidential Committee. The reception had about 20-30 guests. When I said hello to Ken, he told me he was reading the Fair Tax Book and had become a convert to the Fair Tax. I offered any help I could provide and suggested that the Houston Briefing Team come to brief the Giuliani campaign. Ken was receptive.
I next met the host, Mark Gerson, and briefed him on the Fair Tax. He did not appear to know much about it, and his interest was noticeably aroused. When later I said good night to him on my way out, Mark promised me he would go to the web site.
Then it came time for the Giuliani Campaign Manager, Michael DuHaime, to speak. After Michaels speech I introduced myself and mentioned the Fair Tax. Michael said he was aware of it. I suggested that we have the Houston briefing team come, and Michael said they were always willing to listen.
Michael then referred me to John Avion, Deputy director of Policy and Chief Speechwriter, office 212-835-9453, fax 212-321-7049, JohnAvion@.... I repeated my offer to John to have the Houston briefing team come. Michael said they were open. I mentioned that Ken Kurson was himself reading the book.
I talked to three others who were not on the Giuliani staff and to a man named Christopher, the finance chair. One of the people I spoke with is a venture capital manager in Princeton. After I described the Fair Tax to him, he decided he wanted to volunteer for the Fair Tax effort. I said I would put him on our New Jersey Leaders site.
Fair Tax ping!
It sounds a lot like the government telling you the check is in the mail.
Having said that, anyone who believes anything Giuliani says or takes at face value anything said by those associated with his campaign, have taken a sharp turn into Liberalville.
Never trust a liberal.
I'm with you. If Rudy is the nominee, I will probably sit this one out; the first one since I was eligible to vote!
I don't believe there is much difference between Rudy and The Beast or Rudy and Hussein Obama.
They're all liberal yankee lawyers.
Damn right it's a big mistake. That's why it's important that we nominate a real conservative.
But the bottom line is, I can't vote for Rudy. IMHO, that is the same as voting for The Beast or Hussein and I wouldn't vote for either one of them.
Voting for Rudy is a whole lot different than voting for any Dem. National security and economic policy - specifically, taxes. The differences between the two are night and day. Look more closely, I respectfully suggest.
Sorry. Blame my Southern prejudice, but I can't get past 'New York lawyer', not to mention gun control, abortion, and, I think it's important how a man conducts his personal life.
But most important, he may be a Republican, but he ain't a Conservative.
Thanks, but no thanks on Rudy.
He supports lower marginal tax rates, and he supports vigorous prosecution of the war on terror. That puts him a long, long way ahead of any Democratic candidate IMO, who provide you no relief on any of the issues you mention.
