Victory, and other progress

Quote of the Day: “Perseverance is more prevailing than violence; and many things which cannot be overcome when they are together, yield themselves up when taken little by little.” — Plutarch (c.45-125 A.D.) Priest of the Delphic Oracle

There’s a good chance we’ve defeated the cumbersome food safety bill. “The Hill” reports that Congressional leaders pulled the bill even though they had the votes to pass it.

Now why on earth would they do that? It’s because . . .

Pressure works!

We and our allies stirred up enough dust to make the politicians nervous about passing this bill before the election. And they’ll no longer have the votes once the people fire the Democratic majority. The final danger is that the Dems will try to force it through during a lame-duck session. We’ll have to be on guard against that. Meanwhile . . .

We can celebrate another success.

Plus, in other good news . . .

Rand Paul invokes “reading the bills,” and “downsizing the government” in his latest TV commercial.

And, I’ll be traveling through Florida next week, promoting Downsize DC, and speaking at the NullifyNow conference.

This last item has forced a change in our work schedule. We’re going to have to delay, by one week, showing you the new home page for the new website for the Downsize DC Foundation, which is the educational arm of Downsize DC. Meanwhile . . .

There are bills to pay, and we’ve only sent one fundraising message all month. We got our head above water with the assistance we received in August when we had to shut down for a day, but we want to keep it that way. Today is the first day of October. Can you help close out September by making a contribution, or starting a monthly pledge?

Thanks in advance for your help, and have a good weekend.
