Urgent Grassroots Danger!

Today’s Downsizer Dispatch . . .::::::Please share with concerned friends . . .::::::Subject: Urgent Grassroots Danger!::::::Rust and Congress have a lot in common. Both do damage, and neither of them ever sleep. We need to take urgent action today to spray a little metaphorical Rust-oleum over the latest danger area.::::::We have told you in the past how the campaign finance laws have protected incumbents from serious challenge at the ballot box. ::::::Yesterday we described how the establishment’s reaction to Congressman Ron Paul reflects a similar intent to rig things in favor of the status quo. ::::::Today we must alert you to the latest danger to the the kind of grassroots pressure organized and exerted by groups like DownsizeDC.org.::::::Grassroots pressure on Congress is the last remaining tool we have to control the establishment monopoly.

The Great Escape

Four years ago, I met Bruce Shortt. Bruce, an attorney and homeschool parent, is a Southern Baptist. And each year at their annual meeting, his resolutions make news and move the denomination towards schooling independence. This year’s resolution is my favorite yet.
:::
:::Bruce will be my guest today on the Downsize DC Conference Call (radio show) and we’ll talk about that resolution.
:::
