Here are a few common questions we’ve received.
Who Are You?
We’re a coalition of citizens and organizations concerned about the recent trend of fiscal recklessness in government. This website is specifically dedicated to the Washington, D.C. effort specifically sponsored by the American Spectator, the Heartland Institute, Americans for Tax Reform, the National Taxpayers Union, Americans for Prosperity, FreedomWorks, the Institute for Liberty, the Coalition for a Conservative Majority and the Young Conservatives Coalition.
What Are You Doing?
On February 27th, getting a group of activists from around the country to participate in a big event, that, while we have to skimp on the details for now, will resemble the classic tax revolt that jumpstarted the American revolution. We’ll be holding it at noon, on February 27th, at Lafayette Square, by the White House, mere blocks from the Farragut North and McPherson Square metro stops.
(Media: If you’re planning on covering this event, you must use shoulder mounted cameras. The National Park Service warns us that no tripods will be allowed.)
This isn’t a conservative or liberal thing.
This is about government forking over billions of dollars, OUR MONEY, to businesses that should have failed. This is about taking money from responsible people and handing it over to CEOs who squandered their own.
We are not opposing any specific legislation or politician. We are instead addressing the broader philosophical implications of a government that has grown too large and too distant from the very citizens it taxes. This is scary stuff.
Who designed the site?
J. Peter Freire of The American Spectator. But he’s not leading anything but the Washington contingent of the national tea party movement. You can follow him on Twitter here. He tinkered with the yashfa theme for WordPress and is hosting with DancingMammoth.
Who gets to blog?
You do, if you’re helping to organize one of these events locally. Email us, and you’ll be able to jump onto the blog. The side effect of this, however, is that the opinions expressed by the bloggers are the authors’ own and do not represent a consensus of the sponsoring organizations.
