Ax the Tax at Missouri State University

We unintentionally scheduled our Ax the Tax event here at Missouri State University on Tax Day. We handed out plenty of the Ax the Tax handouts that came with the kit, informing tons of our peers along with pulling plenty of those interested aside to explain exactly why we were out there and why it is ridiculous that we have a nearly 75 thousand page tax code! We did so well a Keynesian socialist yelled at and debated us for about 10 minutes as to why the information on where your tax money was going is “misleading” and that we “were peddling misinformation and lies.” His peers that we spoke to would say otherwise. Altogether a good day of activism with beautiful weather and while not nearly reaching the sign up goal we had established we spread a message on Tax Day that otherwise would have gone unheard at Missouri State!
