Send a Letter to the Editor!

Many thanks to Gaylon Spraggs for writing to the Paducah Sun and spreading the word about Downsize DC. (We encourage all of you to do the same!). The letter was published today, and though it’s not available online, we have the original letter as it was submitted


The Repubs let conservatives down. They had their chance and they blew it. I am confident in the Democrat’s ability to keep on going down the same path as always. In a few years they will pass the power back to the Republicans and we’ll all keep going down the same path no matter who runs the show.

The only solution I know of is to keep a close eye on whoever is in office and hold them accountable for their actions. Along with that is to do what I am doing now, which is sharing information. Go to . They have a refreshing approach towards how to deal with what goes on in Washington. The answer is to devolve gov’t back down to a manageable size by making our elected officials responsible for their actions.

Right now our elected officials – both Republican and Democrat spend our money on things they don’t even know they are spending our money on!Legislation is passed with page upon page of additional, unrelated laws (our liberty) or appropriations (our money) without anyone knowing what is in the entire package. Imagine going shopping with your wife and all of your kids picking up things they want without telling you. When you get to the checkout, guess what? You don’t have enough money to pay for it all!!! SURPRISE!!!! Well, you would have to put back what you can’t pay for or don’t need. Congress doesn’t. They spend our money like drunken sailors. The only difference is, drunken sailors spend their own money and they STOP SPENDING WHEN THE MONEY IS GONE!!!
