In light of what Arizona has had to do because of the colossal failure of the Federal Government to enforce the laws and protect our borders I believe that this petition is needed and why I signed it.
Mr. President, Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid, I ask that you immediately fulfill past promises made by the federal government. Enforce the existing laws on the books. Secure our borders now.
If you do not take immediate steps to secure our border and implement and enforce existing laws, I will vote for and support politicians who can get the job done.
The PACs of Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, and Tim Pawlenty have all made their quarterly filing (Romney’s is monthly). It appears that even though Huck PAC brings in the least money they are the ones who know how to get people involved in the process with grassroots support and it appears they are the only PAC that really knows why they exist which is to help candidates get elected.
Please notice the percentage of Huck PAC’s money that actually goes to candidates and also notice that they know how to make the most difference with this money because they invest it in non-federal candidates. In others words, elect conservatives from the bottom up.
I would have to say that the biggest loser here is Sarah PAC. Why the heck even have a PAC? Window dressing.
This is the summary from RightOSphere (please click link to get detailed chart):
Romney’s FnSA-PAC brought in more money than all the others combined. Huck-PAC brought in the least. In a turnaround from last year, Pawlenty’s Freedom First PAC pulled in 25% more that Sarah-PAC.
Only Sarah-PAC operated in the red this quarter.
In the race for grassroots support, Huck-PAC had the biggest percentage of their contributions coming from $200 and below. However in terms of sheer numbers, FnSA-PAC had more than all the other three combined in that category. FF-PAC had the least, both as percentage and as real dollars. It would appear that Pawlenty just isn’t catching on at the grassroots level yet.
Huck-PAC can stand with their head held high when it comes to percentage Contributions going out. They gave away by far the biggest percentage to others. FnSA-PAC gave the most in sheer numbers, but percentage-wise, they came in third. Only Sarah-PAC gave a smaller percentage than they. Sarah-PAC gave the least amount both in dollars and a percentage of all the PACs.
Huck-PAC also gave far more away to non-Federal candidates and causes – a whopping $8000 – than anyone else. While the others didn’t come close to his numbers, at least FnSA-PAC gave $990 to the non-Feds. Sarah-PAC and FF-PAC gave zilch, nada. Way to go supporting the local candidates, Huck! Good job!
Sign Governor Huckabee’s Petition to Elect a Fair Tax Congress. The goal is 50,000 signatures by April 15th. Now that will stimulate the economy!
Tax Day is rapidly approaching. As Americans prepare to give an unfair and growing amount of their paychecks to the Federal Government, our mission is clearer now more than ever:
Folks, it is time we put the IRS out of business.
Together we can accomplish this goal if we work hard to elect a record number of candidates to Congress this November who support the Fair Tax or who are willing to learn more about it.
But before I explain how we do this, let me first – for those of you who are unfamiliar with the Fair Tax – briefly explain how it works.
You get rid of income tax.
You get rid of all the withholding.
You get rid of corporate taxes completely, totally. After all – those taxes are not really paid by the corporations. They’re passed on to the customer with a 22 percent embedded tax in the system.
You eliminate that, which means the prices of what you purchase will go down.
You replace it with a 23 percent consumption tax. Now, that sounds expensive, but you only pay when you purchase something new, whether it’s a product or a service.
Also, It’s a completely transparent tax system.
It doesn’t increase taxes. It’s revenue neutral. It will bring business back to the United States that is leaving our shores – our current, complicated, unfair tax laws make it impossible for an American-based business to compete with lower tax structures in other countries.
Don’t tell me something this “sweeping” can’t be passed. With your help . . . it can – and it will.
I urge you to sign my petition to the Republican candidates running for Congress. Help us reach 50,000 signatures by April 15.
I have signed this petition and I hope and pray that you will add your signature next to mine.
