Hundreds of North Carolina CSE Activists Storm the Capitol demanding "We Want Less"

Nearly 500 North Carolina CSE (NC CSE) activists came from across state to participate in the 2nd Annual NC CSE Day at the Capitol. Some activists met their buses in far western counties of North Carolina as early as 6 a.m. Some drove at least an hour just to get to their buses. The air was crackling with excitement as the local activists signed in early for the day’s activities. These North Carolinians knew that this was their day-the People’s Day-and they were ready to get their message of "We Want Less" out to the legislators in Raleigh.

CSE Praises Sen. Thompson's Efforts to Make Government More Efficient and Effective

Today, Sen. Fred Thompson (R-Tenn.) unveiled his waste, fraud and abuse report, "Government at the Brink: Urgent Federal Government Management Problems Facing the Bush Administration." Paul Beckner, president of Citizens for a Sound Economy, issued the following statement regarding Sen. Thompson's report: "CSE is pleased to see that someone in Washington, D.C. is taking the issue of government waste, fraud, and abuse seriously. "In the past, we've heard the stories of the $400 hammer, and know that the government is wasting literally billions of dollar annually. Sadly, no one has ever tried to comprehensively address this issue. That is, until now. "With this report Sen. Thompson identifies many of the root problems facing government agencies. Additionally, he identifies ten of the worst examples of government mismanagement. Needless to say, we support his efforts." CSE has long advocated for limited government. Key to ensuring this limited government is to make sure that government is working efficiently and effectively. CSE is a grassroots advocacy and education organization dedicated to economic freedom.

Group Says State Can Avoid Tax Increases

BY Scott Mooneyham

Conservatives urged lawmakers Tuesday to cut spending and avoid tax increases, countering earlier rallies where protesters urged tax hikes rather than cuts in state services. Chanting "We Want Less," about 200 members of the anti-tax group Citizens for a Sound Economy also called on the Legislature to defeat any legislation to establish a lottery in North Carolina.

Taxpayer Relief Pledge

On May 26th, the U.S. Congress passed one of the largest tax cuts in history. This bill marked the first time in a generation that Americans have had their tax burden reduced by any significant amount. Although an excellent first step, Congress cannot allow their hard won efforts to be watered down or undone. As a supporter of tax relief and returning the surplus to the taxpayers that earned it, I hereby pledge to:

If there is one thing Scott McNealy, Larry Ellison, and Bill Gates can all agree on, it is that the paucity of broadband has strangled growth in the high-tech sector. The “last-mile” bottleneck has compromised innovation and slowed investment spending to a trickle.

Revaluation Causes Stir In Mitchell County

BY Geoffrey Cantrell And Julie Ball

BAKERSVILLE - The heated issue of taxes and a recent property revaluation in Mitchell County will be the topic at a rally and meeting of the local chapter of North Carolina Citizens for a Sound Economy. Some Mitchell County residents were furious this year when they found out how much their property had increased in value during the past eight years. "The value of property was inflated in the last revaluation," local organizer Keith Masters said. "We are asking commissioners to revisit that and adjust values to more accurately reflect property values."

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: The Crucial W Question

Earlier this week, the cable news program Moneyline ran a segment on the future of the Microsoft antitrust lawsuit. While the segment was not able to answer the most interesting questions, it did ferret out an important issue: Some participants in the case refuse to allow facts and evidence play their proper role in the case. Just like the rest of us, lawsuit-happy attorneys general should wait to see what is in the Appeals Court ruling.
