Advocating on Behalf of the American Military and Defense on the War on Terror

My teenage son is 6'3, handsome as hell, and I really look up to him - because he is smart, kind, interested and engaging (if you don't believe me, just ask me.)

I realized watching the blah blah blah coming from Washington on the bail-out plan that there is a real possibility, strike that, likelihood that my youngest son (and my oldest) will be worse off financially than the previous generations of both sides our families.

And that really pisses me off.

So I am posting an email that I recieved from Erik Telford at the American for Prosperity Institute.

Will you join me in taking a stand in the first major policy battle of President Obama's Administration?

You've seen the coverage of the approximately $1 trillion debt scheme pushed by Speaker Pelosi and President Obama that's being called the "Stimulus Package."

Sadly, many politicians in Washington, DC really believe that driving our nation even deeper into debt and using our money for wasteful government spending boondoggles is the way to get us out of the current recession.

These political leaders don't realize that massive deficits, higher taxes, wasteful spending and heavy-handed regulation are primary reasons for the current recession.

You can fight back today by visiting and joining the growing army of taxpayers saying NO by signing Americans for Prosperity’s petition to stop this disastrous trillion-dollar debt scheme, known as the “Stimulus Package.”

It is critical that we send a loud and clear message to DC politicians that ordinary citizens simply cannot afford the crushing burden and devastating consequences of this initiative.

Please act now to make your voice heard -- and encourage your friends and family to do the same -- by signing AFP’s petition at
