Downsize DC

I am pleased to announce that I have joined the team at Downsize DC. Downsize DC's mission is implicit in its name; it seeks to
end laws and programs that don't work, cause harm, and violate the Constitution. We want to restore the full force of the 9th and 10th amendments, which reserve most social functions to the people and the states.

Our goal is to reduce the federal government to a tiny fraction of its current size, decentralize power, end deficits, federal borrowing, and monetary inflation, and eliminate most federal taxation and the IRS.

We intend to achieve these ambitious goals by petitioning Congress and the President to vote against or veto bad laws and programs, and to repeal old bad laws and programs.

We intend to make this petitioning effective by recruiting every American who believes in small, Constitutional government, decentralized power, civil liberties, and low taxes.

Our goal is to have millions of Americans emailing, writing, and calling their elected representatives to oppose bad laws, and to support laws that shrink the size, scope, intrusiveness, and cost of the federal government.

We will recruit these millions of Americans through the Internet, advertising, media interviews, and direct mail.

We will mobilize, direct, and express the will of the people to force the government to respond, through the sheer weight of our numbers.

Downsize DC is non-partisan. Click here to find out more and participate!

My responsibilities at Downsize DC will include writing material for its blog. Although I will let you know here whenever I post there (which will likely begin later this week), the views I express here at Independent Country will remain, well, independent. Independent Country is and will remain separate, and the views I will continue to express here will be my own and not Downsize DC's.

That said, I wholeheartedly endorse what Downsize DC is doing, and am honored to join in its efforts.
