Stimulate the Economy, Not Big Government

Citizens for a Sound Economy October 9, 2001 Stimulate the Economy, Not Big Government by Brandon Arnold The events of September 11 forever changed our country. For most Americans, nearly every aspect of our lives has been affected somehow by the horrible national tragedy. Congress, however, appears to be one of the few places largely unchanged by the terrorist attacks. After the initial shock and a few patriotic moments of bipartisanship, many lawmakers have reverted to their favorite habit of wasting taxpayer dollars.

Fiscal Restraint: Responsible Spending for a Strong Economy

A war against terrorism is a costly endeavor that will require a significant share of the government’s resources. Because overall spending will almost undoubtedly increase, it is especially important to exercise fiscal discipline and avoid waste. Congress must prioritize America’s needs and avoid excessive spending on wasteful government programs that stymie economic growth.

Alabama Aims to "Sweep Montgomery Clean"

On Saturday August 18th, Alabama CSE held it’s fourth barbeque in the small town of Brilliant, located in Marion County. Over 150 activists, dressed in red, white, and blue Alabama CSE t-shirts that read "Stop Government Waste...Sweep Montgomery Clean" gathered at the Rawl's family pavilion to push for less government. The enthusiastic crowd was treated to an old fashioned rally with music by the Bluegrass Trio and tasty barbeque. Several elected officials attended the event and addressed the crowd from the stage, which was lined with symbolic brooms, painted red, white, and blue, to represent Alabama CSE’s efforts to "sweep Montgomery clean."

Amtrak Not Worth Funsing With Citizens' Tax Dollars

BY Thomas B. Hauck

Editor: I am writing about your editorial of July 20 in favor of giving state subsidies to Amtrak. There were also favorable news articles on June 19 when Amtrak carried local politicians and other civic leaders between Jacksonville and Miami. This one-time free ride for local opinion-makers has generated such a demand for spending millions of Florida taxpayer dollars that to do anything less, your editorial, says, "is an obstacle to progress."

Greenspan Is Architect of a Recession

Thanks to deflationary monetary policy, the economy here and around the world is slipping into a deep freeze, and there is no prospect of a thaw any time soon. As George Gilder observed in The Wall Street Journal, the prices of gold and industrial staples such as steel are down more than 40 percent in four years. He wrote, "A high-tech depression is under way, driven by a long siege of deflationary monetary policy . . . which has shriveled hundreds of debt-laden telecom companies and brought Internet expansion to a halt."

Gary Strannigan's Letter to the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission

August 10, 2001 Dear Sir: On behalf of 14,000 members of Washington Citizens for a Sound Economy (WACSE), I write to encourage you to support Qwest's application to offer long-distance services to consumers in the state of Washington. Qwest has implemented the market-opening requirements of section 271 of the Telecommunications Act successfully and the market for local telecommunications service is irrecoverably open to competition in Washington State.

A Corporate Folly

Copley News Service, 08/09/2001 Philanthropy is a demonstration of good will toward one's fellow man, but the ability to give depends on the wealth, success and opportunity of a free society. The corporations, foundations and individuals who endow our universities, support our museums and foster a healthy 'ideas industry' all depend on profits, dividends and wages generated by capitalism.

Alabama CSE Grows Through ‘Pork Projects’

Montgomery, AL - Alabama Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) is engaging in pork politics. Is Alabama CSE endorsing big government spending? Not at all. Nearly 300 people recently attended a barbecue in Madison County, the third in a series being organized around the state by Alabama CSE. Pork barbeque get-togethers are a time-honored part of Alabama’s social fabric. Alabama CSE has been speaking the common language of barbeque and free-market policies confirming the axiom "all politics is local."

Don’t Go to the Well With a Leaky Bucket

I am not certain, but it seems I heard a wise old fellow say that once. I’ve got to hand it to them. The transportation special interests have done a marvelous job convincing everyone that the buckets are just fine. Don’t worry about that water, er, money, all over the floor. It’s doesn’t really amount to much anyway, we’re assured.
