Petition To Congress


To: Congress of the United States, President of the United States

Whereas, the Constitution of the United States clearly and specifically limits the scope and authority of the federal government under the enumerated powers clause;

Whereas, the encouragement of private and public debt by the federal government has brought America to the brink of financial devastation;

Whereas, history proves government spending has never succeeded in curing an economic downturn, but rather serves only to deepen and prolong it;

Whereas, government takeovers of banks and financial institutions move America ever further from the free-enterprise principles that have brought the nation prosperity for 233 years;

Whereas, bailouts of failing corporations represent a counterproductive response to what is, essentially, a government-induced crisis;

Whereas, the current level of irresponsible government spending will, by all accounts, either bankrupt this country or burden our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren with never-ending debt;

Whereas, redistribution of wealth by government for the purpose of achieving “social justice” is immoral and a proven failure:

We, the undersigned, assert our rights as citizens of the United States in demanding an end to all further “stimulus” spending, corporate bailouts, “earmarks,” pork projects, welfare programs, higher tax rates and attempts to nationalize industries. We reject socialism, no matter how it is packaged. And we pledge to hold accountable any and all elected officials who continue to pursue this course that is rapidly leading America to ruin.

    Earmarks are how congress allocates money or else it goes to Obama to decide unilaterally. Congress should earmark every single penny so we know where the money is going.

    Also, can we add a motion to get our troops back to protecting our shores rather than occupying over 130 countries around the world? Can we add a provision to end the federal reserve, which was a pillar of a communist society mentioned by Marx in the communist manifesto.

    You know it is not a bad thing to try and win over well-intentioned liberals so long as you stick to a consistent message of liberty. As Goldwater said, “extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice.”

    Question: I attended the tea party but didn’t get an opportunity to sign the petition. If I come to the presentation event this Friday, will I be able to sign the petition before it is delieved to Mr. Perriello’s office?
