RE: [RLC-Action] New poll for RLC-Action
- Let me say a few words in favor of the Liberty Bell logo that I conceived
and that a friend put together. I believe it has the following points in
1) Utility of Design -- It is simple, elegant, and able to be embroidered,
screen-printed, or otherwise put onto caps, shirts, bags, patches, buttons,
etc. and still be seen easily. The same cannot be said for most of the
others, which are a little too busy or detailed. We can even add the web
address easily under the lower banner without any problem. If "Let Freedom
Ring" is not chosen as the motto, the chosen motto -- assuming it is not too
long (and it shouldn't be) -- can replace "Let Freedom Ring" on the lower
2) Central Symbol -- The Liberty Bell is a symbol that resonates with
Americans as being indicative of what the Founding of this nation is about.
Also, while it is traditional, it is also NOT an elephant, which is far too
overused by the GOP; we can be both traditional and "out-of-the-box" at the
same time, which is really our message: that the GOP has moved away from the
traditional values of self-government that this country is based upon. It
is also NOT the Statue of Liberty, which is too associated in most
Republican activists' minds with the Libertarian Party.
3) Color Scheme -- bright colors easily visible from long distances in
crowded areas, and so will catch the eye on posters and break out from
clutter around it. A lot of the other logos use darker colors that aren't

They have a monthly e-newsletter and send out e-mail alerts (presumably on pork projects in the works). More importantly, they maintain a database of current and past pork legislation--the Pig Book. The 2005 Pig Book can be viewed at http://www.cagw.org/site/PageServer?pagename=reports_pigbook2005 .

I don't really know anything about this group (though I've heard of them before), so it would probably be a good idea to do a little background research on them before relying on their information. Still, the Pig Book and CAGW's other resources look like good places to start.
