Campaign Post Mortem and Warrantless Spying Update
By Jim Babka
What happened on the primary Presidential campaign trail, especially with candidate Ron Paul?   
On today's edition of the Downsize DC Conference Call, my Sunday radio show, I'll be joined by political beat reporter David Weigel of Reason Magazine and

David will share the agonizing, exhausting, and up-close story of the Presidential campaign -- especially the successes and failure of the Ron Paul campaign.

And I'm sure you've got some opinions on that! You can call 1-800-259-9231 or you can email me at "CALL at DOWNSIZEDC dot ORG" (just type that out like it sounds).

In addition, we'll talk about the House bill foreign surveillance. On Friday, the House passed their version. It was, frankly, the best deal we could've hoped for -- short of just leaving well enough alone and letting the Protect America Act sunset. The fight isn't over. We need to keep the pressure up because the Senate Intelligence Committee bill and this new House Democratic leadership version are now going to be hammered out in conference committee.

Of course, you'll learn all about the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of the House compromise and the battle ahead on my TWO HOUR radio show, which starts at 3:06 PM Eastern (2:06 PM Central, 1:06 PM Mountain, 12:06 PM Pacific).

The Downsize DC Conference Call radio show is sponsored by and Gun Owners of America.

So as usual, we'll have a Gun Owners Update.

The show is on in Montana, West Virginia, and sometimes in Texas, but the best way for nearly everyone in America to catch the show is at 

Happy Listening,
