The Intellectual Activist

[Mailed to subscribers, not printed in publication.  I was introduced and given space to write:]

I am a politician who would like to persuade you that we need to add the following amendment to our Constitution:  Our government will not tax.  After working many years on an idea called contract insurance, I have discovered a way to operate our government without taxation.  If you would like to read my forty page booklet, I am happy to mail it to you.  I have subscribed to The Intellectual Activist since it began and I also will respect your privacy.  Thanks for your consideration, Dave
