Tea Party Group Co-Opts Communist Symbol

BY Eric Kleefeld

FreedomWorks, the conservative organization that had a big hand in the Tea Party rallies this past April, is gearing up for a new "Taxpayer March On Washington" for September 12 -- with a very interesting logo.The intriguing thing here, as Ron Gunzburger pointed out, is that the logo makes use of left-handed fists, colored in red -- a traditional symbol all around the world for communism and militant socialism.

FreedomWorks Targets House “Conservatives” Supporting Cap-and-Trade

FreedomWorks put members of the House Blue Dog Caucus as well as the Republican Conference that voted for H.R. 2454, the Waxman-Markey cap-and-trade bill, on notice that grassroots activists in their districts would be spreading the word on their support for the massive new tax on energy production and consumption that this legislation threatens to enact.These targeted Members of Congress, 31 in all including 23 Blue Dog Democrats and 8 Republicans, have publicly claimed the mantle of fiscal responsibility.  However, as H.R. 2454 is estimated to cost anywhere from $750 to over $3,000 a year per family as a result of this new energy tax that will be created through the bill’s cap-and-trade scheme to regulate carbon emissions, FreedomWorks believes their constituents have the right to know that their rhetoric doesn’t match their actions.FreedomWorks will be leveraging its activist networks in these lawmakers’ districts to help spread the word of their “yes” vote on H.R. 2454 despite the potentially disastrous economic implications.  High energy prices affect everything from heating, electricity, and fuel prices to agriculture, manufacturers, and shipping costs.  Especially in today’s tough economic times, this policy is the wrong approach for American businesses and taxpayers.   FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe sent a letter to each of the 31 targeted Members of Congress which read in part, “H.R. 2454 runs counter to any interpretation of fiscal conservative principal and indeed to fiscal sanity itself.  Our members in your district will be working hard to make sure this message and your “yes” vote are communicated within their communities.”For a sample of the letter and complete list of targeted legislators please CLICK HERE.

Tampa Bay Citizens to Protest Government-Run Health Care

Inspired by the recent nationwide Tax Day “Tea Party” protest rallies, local Tampa Bay chapters of national grassroots organizations have joined forces to protest proposals for expanded government control of American health care. The Tea Party Patriots, the 9/12 Project, ResistNet, FreedomWorks.org, and others will assemble outside congressional offices on July 2nd to tell their U.S. Representatives and Senators that the proposed hostile government takeover of America’s health care system is unacceptable.  Americans will not stand by and watch their taxes go up to fund a socialized medicine scheme that will crowd out private insurance and effectively lead to health care rationing.The protesters seek to preserve the doctor-patient relationship, expand consumer choice and financial empowerment of patients, and promote market-based solutions in order to make high-quality, affordable healthcare accessible to all Americans. Florida FreedomWorks Field Coordinator Tom Gaitens commented:“July 2nd is the actual anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence and in Florida we plan to celebrate that day at every Representative and Senator’s district offices rallying for freedom and against the latest big-government scheme to come out of Washington: government-run health care.  A government takeover of America’s health care system will lead to rationing, reduced care and less individual control over one’s own health. You do not fix health care for the 15% by rationing it for the 85%.”Healthcare Freedom Rallies are planned for July 2, 2009 at four locations in Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties:  Senator Bill Nelson's Office801 N.

Germany Taking the Path Less-Traveled

It looks as if President Obama and Congress could take a few economics lessons from Chancellor Angela Merkel. While the US is going to try to spend her way out of the financial crisis by putting more taxes on the American people to finance the stimulus package, Chancellor Merkel has opted for the path less-traveled—the more laissez-faire path that is. Although hardly a perfect model (Germany did spend billions of euros to bail out her banks), Chancellor Merkel is not going to implement higher taxes in an attempt to fix the economy. With elections on the horizon and a projection of a 6% drop in GDP, the Chancellor is getting serious about making economic growth her priority.
