Support the FAIR Act to Stop Abuses of Civil Asset Forfeiture

As one of our more than 6.7 million FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your representative and senators today and ask them to support and co-sponsor the Fifth Amendment Integrity Restoration (FAIR) Act. Introduced by Congressman Tim Walberg (R-Mich.) and Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.), the FAIR Act is a worthy check on the corrupt use of civil asset forfeiture – an important defense again unlawful search and seizure.

The real State of the Union response was delivered by Rand Paul

Being tasked with a response to the State of the Union address isn't easy. The message, usually given by a fresh face, is carefully crafted to fluff up a party's priorities for the coming months, as well as offer Americans a distinction between their agenda and what the president offered them earlier in the evening.

Justice Department Ends Unconstitutional Property Seizure Program

The Department of Justice has announced that it will be ending its Equitable Sharing Program. The Washington Post reports that the Equitable Sharing Program “has enabled local and state police to make seizures and then have them ‘adopted’ by federal agencies, which share in the proceeds.

Paris tragedy demands more freedom, not less
