How to FIGHT Trader's Tax..

  1. OK. There is more and more NOISE about this crazy Securities Transaction Tax. So, instead of complaining here is a constructive solution...

    Donate to the Security Trader's Political Action Committee... Look at the National Rifle Association. No one hassles them. Why? Because they have a POWERFUL Political Action Committe.

    Here is the link for Security Traders PAC

    Here is an email I received from the group this morning...

  2. "would become engaged"? They don't think the issue has reappeared?
  3. That was my reaction. I would prefer something a bit more proactive. But, as far as I know they are the ONLY Political Action Committee for Traders.

  4. the comittee is all white people :mad:
  5. 5200 members is a far cry from the NRA. And if 95% fail, that doesn't bode well for increasing membership significantly.
