Attached is a message I sent to the headquarters of FreedomWorks,
which was co-founded by Dick Armey. I would very much appreciate your help
in supporting this message with FreedomWorks and Mr. Armey, and especially
getting other libertarians to oppose Armey's unseemly pork-barrel
Thanks for your help,
Here's the message I sent to FreedomWorks:
I am a member of FreedomWorks in Florida, and I would appreciate your
passing this message along to Dick Armey.
Dear Mr. Armey:
I joined FreedomWorks recently because I believe in a free society in which
government performs only its legitimate functions and does not distribute "pork"
to political favorites. Therefore, I was dismayed to read in a recent
issue of Time that you are part of a team of lobbyists to whom Jeb Bush
is paying $50,000 per month of Florida taxpayer money to lobby to get the Bush
administration to keep 21 military bases in Florida which the Pentagon has
decided are militarily unnecessary.
I remember when you were principled - when you fought in Congress to close
unnecessary military bases. But I guess you now have your price.
Shame on you. I intend to make a HUGE issue of this in FreedomWorks, here
in Florida and around the country. If you don't have the character to drop
this representation at once, maybe you'll respond to a little lobbying from the
organization you co-founded.
I would very much appreciate hearing from you.
