Quote of the Day: "Everyone wants to live at the expense of the state. They forget that the state wants to live at the expense of everyone." Frederic Bastiat
Is silence equal to consent? The incumbent politicians on Capitol Hill sure act as if it is!
You must make it CLEAR to them that you do NOT approve. There are lots of ways to do so. Some are effective; some aren't. Some are economical; most are complex and expensive.
DownsizeDC.org's "Educate the Powerful System" provides everyone with an address a SIMPLE method to withdraw consent. This PROPRIETARY system...
1. Allows you to send a letter to your Rep. and two Senators, simultaneously.
2. Makes sure that those offices know that they're hearing from constituents, which wouldn't be possible with a simple email.
3. Ensures that you are NOT alone. Other people who agree with you, are sending letters on the same issue.
The Downsize DC Team uses this system. You can too! Here are our most recent letters to our "representatives" and we encourage you to copy from us, or better yet, write your own letter...
"A Government With No Credibility Sees Its Credit Rating Lowered"
S&P downgrade proves Debt Deal was a sham. Tell Congress to make REAL cuts in spending. #DownsizeDC http://bit.ly/qwpx6m
"Poll Shows that Politicians Lack the Consent of the Governed"
Americans didn't approve. Still got bailout, Obamacare, and the "debt deal." Make your disapproval CLEAR. #DownsizeDC http://bit.ly/qcljRt
"I'd Be Happy to Leave Afghanistan"
"If you don't want us, we're happy to leave." - Joe Biden to President Karzai. Make US happy Joe! Leave! #DownsizeDC http://bit.ly/q0K7Hf
Choose one. Choose all. Send your letter(s). Tweet! Withdraw your consent, loud and clear.
