Starve the Bureaucratic Beast: Support A Pure Leahy-Lee Amendment

The last time legislators updated the Electronic Communication Privacy Act (ECPA) was when Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was a toddler. With new technological innovation and new privacy concerns, Congress must cooperate to bring the laws into the 21st Century. Reforming the ECPA is necessary to guarantee our Constitutional protection against warrantless digital searches and seizures. The answer is the Leahy Lee-Amendment.

Taking the Pulse of Congress on the RFS

While most of the headlines emanating from Washington, D.C., may be focused on new high profile scandals or political fights, it is critical not to lose track of important, yet decidedly less flashy, old business being tended to on Capitol Hill. Case in point is the current debate over the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).

Detroit Bankruptcy: Just What the Doctor Ordered

Detroit is bankrupt. A combination of intense union cronyism, massive red tape and vile political tactics (The Curly Effect) drove the metropolitan area into the ground.

Another Texas Success: Houston Edges Out NYC as Nation's Leading Goods Exporter

New data shows Houston pulling ahead of New York City as the largest goods exporting region in the country. The cause? Texas' thriving economic climate, regulatory friendly environment, and energy boom. The state of Texas has been the nation's leading exporter for eleven consecutive years, so the shift in goods exports dominance isn't exactly surprising, but is certainly noteworthy.

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles: The TSA’s Misapplication of the Precautionary Principle

In the wake of tragedy of 9-11, the American people feared terrorists would take away their freedom. The greatest threat to freedom was the voluntary surrender of freedom for the sake of government-provided “protection”. This “precautionary principle” has been used by Big Brother to say “governments should implement regulatory measures to prevent or restrict actions that raise even conjectural threats of harm to human[s].” In essence, this principle claims overprotection causes little to no harm.

Letter of Support for the Natural Gas Pipeline Permitting Reform Act

July 16, 2013  Dear FreedomWorks member, As one of our millions of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your Representative in Congress and tell them to support the Natural Gas Pipeline Permitting Reform Act (H.R. 1900).

Nothing to Hide, Something to Fear

Washington doesn’t have the right answers because they ask the wrong questions. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) last month demonstrated a lack of understanding of America’s constitutionally protected rights when he nonchalantly explained he is “glad” that the government was spying upon Americans. Graham explained that if you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear. However, the American people have a lot to fear from politicians ask who defend tyranny above the right of the people.

Marine Returns Fire In Obama's War on Coal ... In Song

Marine veteran, Jimmy Rose, hit the stage last week for a performance on the hit show America's Got Talent, belting out an original country tune that eloquently humanized an industry that has been a way of life for his family and friends. The song was titled, Coal Keeps the Lights On. By singing about keeping the lights on, Rose cast a spotlight on the Obama administration's War on Coal, and by extension, a war on the very types of people Rose is singing about.
