Freedomworks, a national grassroots organization dedicated to lower taxes, less government and more economic freedom for Americans, launched their two-day Liberty Summit Wednesday for more than 200 state volunteer leaders across the country.
The summit was designed to educate attendees to recruit friends at home and mobilize powerful campaigns locally to fight for more individual freedom and elect constitutionally-motivated leaders. Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.), one of the strongest proponents of earmark reform, spoke on the importance of eliminating pork barrel spending and applauded the efforts of other Senate and congressional leaders who’ve joined him in the fight. Several years ago, he noted, nobody knew what an earmark was but today, the term is common knowledge.
