Hear last Harry Browne show
By Perry Willis

Today's Downsizer-Dispatch . . .

The 10th of the month is REAL ID Grudge Day -- the day we remind Congress we haven't forgotten the REAL ID Act, and the foundation it laid for a national identification system. Ask Congress to repeal the REAL ID Act by clicking here.

14,151 "repeal the REAL ID Act" messages have been sent so far. Let's push that number higher.


Three more bloggers have joined the RTBA Coalition. Check them out:


I will guest-host the final episode of the Harry Browne show tomorrow evening. I'll have several guests, including David Bergland, and Harry's 1996 Campaign Manager, Sharon Ayres. You can also call-in and share your memories of Harry.

You can listen on the Internet at Press "Listen Live" and then select one of the first two channels. The call-in number is 1-800-259-9231. The show begins at...

Eastern: 10pm - Midnight, Central: 9pm - 11pm, Mountain: 8pm - 10pm, Pacific: 7pm - 9pm, Alaska: 6pm - 8pm, Hawaii: 5pm - 7pm


The final roster of those who made contributions in memory of Harry will be published on Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. If you would like to make a contribution in his memory you can do so here.


Fellow Downsizers,

The Talkers 250 is a list of the 250 most important talk shows of 2006. This year, the world’s most pro-Liberty show, Free Talk Live, was included!

This is a major honor in the business, and FTL is receiving it after only a year and a half in syndication! This is because of listeners like you calling their local talk stations and creating a demand for principled, pro-Liberty talk content by asking for Free Talk Live! To learn how to call your local talk stations please visit

Plus, I need your help. Our vote total is down this month. That means we've dropped off the top ten podcasts! That's never happened before! We need the DC Downsizers! It would only take a few hundred votes to propel us back to number one! Please vote here, it only takes a minute!

Thank you for listening!

Ian, Host, Webmaster,


It's been a long, hard, emotional week. We at DownsizeDC miss Harry terribly, but we are glad to continue to fight for the things he believed in. Thank you for being a DC Downsizer.

Jim Babka, President,, Inc.
