Like you, I’m sick of the out-of-control spending in Washington. We have a reckless government
with reckless spending habits and policies. We face too many critical issues and the stakes are
simply too high to sit on the sidelines. If we want government to leave us alone, we need to get
politically active and force government back into its proper constitutional limits.
That’s why I’m so proud to partner with Americans for Prosperity and our more than 1.6 million
activists across the country to send a message to the tax-and-spenders in Washington, the unelected
government bureaucrats, and the national media that we are SICK OF SPENDING! And we’ll no
longer sit back and watch our country get destroyed by its own government.
Americans for Prosperity is the most effective activist organization in the country. And I say this as
somebody who has spent 40 years in the conservative movement and eight years in the Reagan
administration. There are other powerful grassroots groups on single issues, but only AFP brings the
comprehensive limited government philosophy our country desperately needs to everyday rank-andfile
AFP has long been a leader in fighting wasteful government spending. They led the fight on wasteful
government spending under President Bush and the Republican Congress.
AFP stepped it up another level with its national NoStimulus.com effort, which collected nearly half
a million signatures and came close to derailing an unprecedented big government spending bill that
initially has only token opposition from Senate Republicans. That effort was part of a year of
unprecedented grassroots opposition to a Washington takeover of health care that would have
succeeded if Democrats cared what their constituents thought.
AFP’s efforts on card check and cap-and-trade have stalled those measures to date, although we must
keep the pressure on to assure workers are not forced into unions against their will and Americans are
not subject to enormous energy taxes in the name of global warming.
The Left will clearly not rest until they have almost complete control over our lives. So we must
keep fighting back, and becoming part of Americans for Prosperity is the most effective way to fight
back. After you sign up with AFP, we’ll send you important email updates with action alerts to
contact your elected officials, attend taxpayer rallies, get trained and networked in at our conferences
all across the country, and other opportunities to make your voice heard and stand shoulder to
shoulder with like-minded folks around the country, who together are making a difference.
It’s time we take our activism to the next level. We must reach out to our friends and neighbors and
get them involved too! AFP has the network and the tools to make us all more effective activists and
advocates for limited government. Join us. The future of our republic depends on it.
