  • GOP admits small government no longer its driving force

    Republicans have given up the pretense that their party is the party of small government. “One of the most misunderstood parts of Hoosier culture is that Hoosiers are reluctant of change of any kind,” State Rep. Luke Messer told Brian Howey, publisher of Indianapolis Eye News, in an article that identifies an undercurrent in Indiana to have a constitutional convention. “If we have a strong leader, Hoosiers are willing to step up and make big changes. Bob Knight and Larry Bird were pretty big figures in Hoosier culture and they have been willing to make big changes. What we want...

    Oregon Libertarian Tom Cox is following up on his promise: He said last year -- when he was chairman of the state Libertarian Party -- that Republican legislators in his state who voted to approve a tax hike would be opposed when they came up for re-election. He is now running against one of those Republicans. And his move has been noted -- and applauded -- by local media and lawmakers alike. The Salem Statesman Journal, in the capital city, pointed out that both Libertarians and some Republicans said they would do their utmost to kick those lawmakers out of...

    WorldNetDaily / Commentary Shock and awe not only for Iraqis Posted: April 16, 2003 1:00 a.m. Eastern By Joan Veon © 2003 While jubilant Americans can't help but be fixated on "revolutionary" military operations they have witnessed on television for the past two weeks – called "Shock and Awe" – most are not aware that Americans are about to receive their own economic "Shock and Awe." Many forget that while Rome burned, Nero was busy deflecting attention away from the real center of action. For example, the front page of the March 8 Washington Post featured a huge picture showing the...

    *** Center for Freedom and Prosperity Special Alert *** ATTENTION The European Union is pressuring the Bush Administration to support a cartel to prop up welfare states like France and Germany – even though the proposal will undermine America’s competitive advantage in the global economy. We need your help. Career bureaucrats at the IRS and Treasury Department want President Bush to participate in the European Union “savings tax directive,” even though this misguided scheme would allow foreign governments to tax income earned in America. We hope that you will contact the White House and your Member of Congress. Please...

    Top Ten Civil Liberties Abuses of the Income Tax by Chris EdwardsChris Edwards is director of fiscal policy studies at the Cato Institute. Any tax system creates a threat to individual liberty because "the power to tax involves the power to destroy," as Chief Justice John Marshall observed.[1] But the federal income tax and its enforcement harm civil liberties much more than necessary to raise needed funds for the government. Certainly, the IRS performs poorly and too easily abuses the rights of citizens. But ultimately Congress is to blame for creating an excessively complex and high-rate tax system. New...

    A host of witnesses who offered testimony under oath during congressional-style hearings at a "Truth-in-Taxation" forum in Washington, D.C., say the event went off without a hitch and was generally a success. Bob Schulz, head of the We The People Foundation, which helped sponsor the event, said the forum – held Wednesday and Thursday at the Washington Marriott Hotel – "brought to public attention" allegations that the government has "intentionally and systematically conspired to deprive the American People of our Constitutional rights. …" "The hearing was but another step in the people's determination to get to the truth regarding ...
