If your Congressman is not listed in my post below that means he didn’t sign the bill. Talk to your congressman and find out if they support the bill. Some simply haven’t made up their mind yet you can be the difference in your district to change the way we pay taxes! If you’re unclear who your congressman is go to Project Vote Smart http://www.votesmart.org/index.htmyou can enter your address and find all of your elected officials. Having Congress onboard will not be the only stumbling block a piece of legislation this big will need complete executive office support as well, the current administration does not support the bill. As candidates emerge over the next year for the 2012 Presidential race study them carefully. And hopefully like me you’ll support the candidate(s) that support Fairtax.

There's a Liberal Georgia blog I rather enjoy... http://galiberal.com/?cat=226 We all know I'm not liberal but I get a kick out of the site with some of the jokes and it's always good to hear perspectives from people I don't see eye to eye with. Anyway, today he posted this... funny!
Martha Coakley Syndrome (MCS) is when a candidate is so full of victory, they get sloppy in their campaigning. For example, Martha Coakley did some of the following things during her campaign (Symptoms of MCS):
1- When criticized for leaving the state for a Washington fundraiser instead of campaigning, Coakley responded saying “as opposed to standing outside Fenway Park? In the cold?” (Not engaging the people)
2-Coakley also referred to Red Sox star pitcher and Brown supporter Curt Schilling as “another Yankee fan,” making her a butt of late-night comedian jokes, including Jon Stewart. (Being ignorant about common things)
3-Coakley took a week-long vacation. (Not campaigning)
4-Relying too heavily
So, in the future, expect us to refer to MCS. I think that, perhaps, someone on the Democratic Governor Primary, whom I will not call out in this point, may be suffering from MCS.
MCS can be treated by the following actions:
Getting out and talking to he people
Not assuming that you are winning
Not rolling your eyes during debate (did that give it away)
Realizing that your massive amount of campaign dollars contributions do not equate to good, grassroots, of-the-people support.

Whatever you do though if you live in the state of Georgia… don’t forget to vote! It’s your responsibility as an American Citizen. My husband as a resident doesn’t have the privilege to vote and he yearns for the day he’ll be able to walk to the polls and have an opinion that counts. So get out and vote friends!
