Weekly Update – April 24, 2010
TOPICS OF INTEREST:
1. WE NEED YOUR HELP TO GET OUR MESSAGE OUT!!! We need 400 people to pay $30 dues to keep our message on the radio, the internet, and on road signs. If you live near a well traveled rural road, please let us put a sign there! Contact Seth Grossman at firstname.lastname@example.org or (609) 927-7333.
2. GETTING PAST THE TEA PARTIES!!! April 19 was Patriot Day?the day of Paul Revere?s Ride and the Battles of Lexington and Concord in 1775. On April 20, there was not a single ?Tea Party? candidate on the ballot for Mainland High School Board in Northfield or Somers Point. Not a single candidate to oppose big tax hikes in Somers Point or Egg Harbor Township filed for the June 8 Primary Election. The people of Boston only had one Tea Party in 1774. Then they won elections, organized militias, formed Committees of Correspondence, and finally formed a Continental Congress with a Continental Army! If the original patriots of 1775 just kept showing up for Tea Parties, we would still be part of England! Find out what you can do to make a real difference. Meet us this Saturday at Bayfest and read the details at www.libertyandprosperity.org.
3. Did Congressman Frank LoBiondo ever read the Constitution he swore 8 times to support and defend? Last summer, Congressman LoBiondo said on the Jeff Whittaker show on 1400 AM Radio that he was against ObamaCare because it was ?unconstitutional?. When Bob of Somers Point asked LoBiondo why he supported ?Cash for Clunkers? and other laws that were just as unconstitutional, LoBiondo responded ?I?m not a lawyer.? Last month, a young man asked Congressman LoBiondo to explain Article I, Section 1 of the Constitution. His answer on video was already seen by more than 100,000 people around the world at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPTiTYDOQd8

6. TIME TO UPDATE OUR EIGHT POINT PROGRAM??? The basic mission of our organization is to explain how Liberty and Prosperity, New Jersey?s motto since 1776, has a message that is still true and relevant?and to give today?s Americans the knowledge and skill they need to again be effective free citizens. Seven years ago, we developed what became an eight point program to apply traditional principles of American Liberty to specific issues today. At our last meeting, we agreed to update them. What do you think of this new eight point program?
I. No eminent domain for private gain.
II. Enforce Federal immigration laws–No amnesty! Detain and promptly deport all foreigners who have no legal right to be in this country–or repeal all immigration laws and let the whole world live here!
III. Make tax and zoning laws fair, simple, and apply them equally to everyone.
IV. Cut taxes by cutting government spending.
V. Post all government salaries and contracts online.
VI. Repudiate (refuse to pay) all government debts incurred without voter approval in violation of our State Constitution, or for purposes not permitted by Article I, Section 8 of our Federal Constitution.
VII. Bring ?government of the people, by the people, and for the people? back to our public schools and local governments. Let parents apply taxpayer money spent to educate their children to the qualified schools they choose. Don?t force public employees to pay dues to unions they don?t want to join. Let elected officials again decide what salaries, pensions, and benefits we can afford to pay our public ?servants?.
VIII. Hold frequent non-binding referendums (public votes) on all issues of public importance.
Should we adopt this new eight point program at our next meeting? Would you change or add anything? Please let me know before the next meeting at (609) 927-7333 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
