State AG's to Consumers: Here's Your Swiss-Cheese Security Program

"Consumers are likely to face higher security costs due to increased risks of viruses and hackers," concluded Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) vice president Erick Gustafson following the testimony of Virginia professor Kenneth Elzinga. "Far from providing additional consumer benefit, the non-settling states so-called remedy is going to result in confusion, chaos, and a better environment for criminals. Perhaps I've just missed why this is good for consumers, but it really appears as though the states' proposal is designed to benefit Microsoft's competitors," he continued.

Political activist has Bill Clinton to thank

Originally appeared in the Winston-Salem Journal. Joyce Krawiec used to be a PTA mom, but now she's a political activist. Krawiec is the Forsyth County director for Citizens for a Sound Economy, a group that lobbies for lower taxes and less government. Her unpaid job might take her to Washington D.C. to argue for tax cuts or to Raleigh to buttonhole a legislator.

5.8 Percent

Last Friday’s news that U.S. economic output surged by 5.8 percent in the first three months of 2002 was welcomed by President Bush with guarded optimism. Although the economic rebound was greater than anticipated by many in the administration, not all of the news was good. Business investment, the key to the historic growth of the late 1990s, fell for a fifth consecutive quarter and consumer spending, which accounts for two-thirds of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), actually fell by 2.6 percent from the previous quarter.

Gates Scores Points for Appearance

BY Jube Shiver

The decision to put brilliant but volatile Microsoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates on the stand in the most important antitrust case since the breakup of Standard Oil Co. turned out to be not so risky after all. In the end, after three days of testifying in Microsoft's landmark antitrust trial in U.S. District Court, it mattered little whether the world's richest man presented a powerful legal argument. What mattered more, experts say, is that Gates simply showed up in court and came across as a human being.

Enron Fix?

As published in Investor's Business Daily, Thursday, April 25, 2002 The political bang from Enron's collapse may have dissipated, but the legislative fallout has only begun. In the name of eradicating so-called "Enron accounting," Sens. Carl Levin, D-Mich., John McCain, R-Ariz., and Rep. Pete Stark, D-Calif., have introduced legislation to make it tougher for companies to grant stock options for workers.

Organizing Voters for Less

Cynicism. Pessimism. These are the words that the media constantly uses to describe the public’s attitude towards politics and politicians. Voter turnout is low, campaigns are driven by money rather than policy, and Congress remains helplessly gridlocked on important national issues such as energy and social security reform. There is more than a grain of truth to this description of politics. But what is unclear, however, is whether the voters are wrong. Should they be optimistic? Should they view politics as a positive force that can better their lives? In many ways, voter sentiments are right in line with the tenets of limited government that frame our constitutional democracy.

Activists Storm D.C. to Demand Senate Action

Activists visited the White House to spread the message that they want Senate action on the Bush agenda. Some of CSE’s best volunteer citizen activists from Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Oregon, Texas, Washington, and Utah took time out of their schedules to come to the nation’s capital to express their frustration with the Senate’s stone-walling and delay tactics. “Let’s Vote,” was the message sent to Senate office after Senate office.

Citizens Defend Freedom

This week CSE hosted our second, Liberty Summit, in Washington, D.C. Volunteer citizen activists from 9 states took time out of their schedules to come to the nation’s capital and talk with their Senators about the need to end lawsuit abuse. Unlike union members who come to Washington lobby days, our activists were not paid to be here. They came because they believe in freedom and accept the burdens and responsibilities of defending it.
