After the congressional switchboard was flooded with phone calls, UN CRPD was struck down Wednesday! We wanted the care of special needs children to remain in the hands of their parents, not government bureaucrats. The voices of the American people were heard and we made a difference!
Are you ready to "get in the game"? Tired of Congress not being held to account? We cannot wait another 4 years to get involved. Check out FreedomWorks! They can help you stay in the loop and call/email your representatives when important decisions are being made in Congress. Citizen involvement is essential to a Republic. Benjamin Franklin said we were given, "A Republic...if you can keep it." It's time to become an activist, whether that means getting involved in your local government and knowing what's happening in your County Commission, City Council, and Mayors office, or what's coming up for vote in the House and Senate. Freedom Connector can help you find a group in your area for local issues and the FreedomWorks website and facebook page will keep you up on federal issues!
According to FreedomWorks About Us page,
"FreedomWorks recruits, educates, trains and mobilizes millions of volunteer activists to fight for less government, lower taxes, and more freedom.
"FreedomWorks believes individual liberty and the freedom to compete increases consumer choices and provides individuals with the greatest control over what they own and earn."
"FreedomWorks' aggressive, real-time campaigns activate a growing and permanent volunteer grassroots army to show up and demand policy change."
FreedomWorks also helps you and me keep track of our representatives through their congressional scorecards!
