Here is a simple and inexpensive way to spread the word about an assemblymember’s or senator’s responsibility for the cigarette tax increase:

 

1.  Go to www.vistaprint.com, where you can create 250 business cards for free (shipping is not free, but what’s five dollars?).

 

2.  Instead of putting your name on the card, write, “Assemblymember/Senator So-and-So sponsored the cigarette tax increase.  Visit the web listing below to help protest this tax.”

 

3.  Include this blog’s address (www.itsgonetoofar.wordpress.com) on the card.  Follow step four closely.

  

4.  Go to your local corner store and ask the owner or management to hand out one of the cards to each person purchasing a pack of cigarettes.

For example, your cards might declare the following:

Who helped sponsore the cigarette tax increase?

(Name of tax sponsor)

District __, New York State Assembly

END EXCESSIVE TOBACCO TAXES IN NEW YORK

Don’t think it’ll make a difference?  Consider the math:  This started with 500 cards, ordered by one person.  If only 20 people (4 percent) among those first 500 receiving a card order 250 cards of their own, that’s 5,000 cards that suddenly hit the street; four percent of 5,000 creates 50,000 cards; four percent of 50,000 creates 500,000 cards.  Think about that:  500,000 cards proclaiming who not to vote for, and the cards will only continue to perpetuate themselves.  It is every politician’s worst nightmare.
