Amanda is so very proud to announce she received an “A” grade from the Georgia Fair Tax
organization! And she’s the very first US Senate candidate to get the “A” ranking!
Indeed, Amanda’s first goal is to bring the federal government in alignment with its primary
purpose of preserving and protecting individual rights and in doing so, believes we could
operate the federal government without any federal income tax at all, thereby first calling
for a repeal of the 16th Amendment.
However, as a former tax professional, Amanda has a firm grasp of the intricacies of our
individual tax code and knows the Fair Tax would serve as a system immediately ready to be
implemented until critical mass could be reached to repeal the 16th Amendment and end our
current system of taxation.
With the support of respected economists and many years of research behind it, the Fair Tax
allows us to keep our entire paycheck and decide if we want to buy new products which creates
a taxable event or forego any tax at all by saving our money and buying used goods.
Taxation essentially becomes an individual action under the Fair Tax instead of a tool used
by Congress to manipulate us into their desired social engineering.
July 26th: Gave the DC Establishment the BANG BANG

and everyone had a great time! The Georgia Gun Club is a First Class, top of the line,
BRAND NEW FACILITY located near the Braselton area and features an extraordinary
indoor shooting environment for today's demanding sport enthusiast.
Volunteering at the Georgia for Fair Tax Booth, Cumming Fairgrounds
In July, while her opponents were only talking about bringing the Fair Tax to a vote
in the Senate, Amanda went to work in Forsyth County, Georgia at the Cumming Fairgrounds
to help the Georgia for Fair Tax organization enlist more supporters and create greater
understanding of the Fair Tax. As both a long time grassroots volunteer for the Fair
Tax and a former income tax preparer, Amanda clearly knows the advantages of moving
away from a system that penalizes earnings based on productivity.
Georgia Carry HB 60 Celebration
On July 1st, Amanda joined supporters throughout
Metro Atlanta at Adventures Outdoors in Smyrna to celebrate the hard fought victory led
by the grassroots Second Amendment organization Georgia Carry. HB 60 clarified
many conflicting provisions in Georgia's firearms statutes pertaining to where gun
owners could lawfully carry firearms in Georgia. Amanda has strongly
supported Second Amendment rights and spoke out on the day HB 60 was signed into law
saying, "With the passage of HB 60, Georgia has become one of the best states in
America for understanding the power and responsibility of lawful individuals pertaining
to gun ownership instead of the power and responsibility of our government."
Fourth of July Parade in Cobb County
Amanda and supporters gathered with the Libertarian Party of Cobb County to participate
in the annual Marietta Fourth of July parade and celebrate our nation's independence
from oppressive government rulers. Over 40,000 spectators were witness to a patriotic
float that proclaimed the virtues of smaller government not just some of the time but
all of the time! One of the highlights of the float was a talking bird that reminded
parade observers to "Ax the Braves Tax" in reference to the millions of new obligations
being placed upon Cobb County as a result of the new Braves baseball stadium.
Memorial Day Parade
The Memorial Day parade in Dacula was an outstanding parade! Our entry was seen by well over 10,000
people and many thanks go out to campaign volunteers who arrived early to decorate our entry! Blessed
are those who sacrifice today so we are free tomorrow!
