ARE YOU READY NOW TO STAND UP FOR AMERICA!!! JOIN ME EITHER IN DALLAS AT SOUTH FORK ON JULY 4TH 2009 OR START PLANNING YOUR OWN TEA PARTY!!!! Mark Lavin asks if you are enjoying the freedom that you have today. Do you enjoy your private property and liberty? Because the way things are going, these fundamental freedoms and rights may be under attack. We are heading the closest to a dictatorship than we ever have.

How Not to Help the Poor. What have Community Organizers really accomplished. - 05/21/09 12:04 PM
So if it makes you feel good to support Government programs, are you holding government accountable for those funds you are giving them. Are they really taking care of business or are they in the business of government. You need to watch this video and see how not to help the poor. Now let me ask a question. As Americans do we believe in States rights over the Federal Government. Please watch this video and see how Acorn is being used to build a big Federal government.
