It only takes six Congressmen to stop the growth of government.
To find out whether your congressman is wiling to be one of the six;
Write him a letter which reads as follows:
Dear Mr. Congressman:
I know that you are alarmed at the continued growth in the
Size, Cost, Reach and Power of the government.
My request of you is quite simple.
In every committee meeting no matter how small, ask the following question;
“If this proposal goes through will it increase the size, cost, reach or power of the government?”
When the reply to your question is in the affirmative tell the sponsor that you are going to vote no on that bill or proposal for those reasons.
We have too much government now.
If you will do this and keep a tally and use your franking privileges to send a bulletin or a letter detailing the yea’s and nay’s you will go a long way in helping us slow the growth of government.
The only thing I ask other than that, is that you vote no on all of these little increases, the sum total of which make up this massive Federal Budget.
Keep a tally and let me know from month to month what the yea’s and nay’s are and I’ll spread the word.
