I just got off the phone with Marko at Congressman Grave’s Washington office.
I had spoken to him before and he remembered me.
I made three points:
1. Handing over the purse to an appointed official is constitutionally illegal. It is congress’ obligation to handle the treasury.
2. Where will the $700B come from? This is a credit crisis remember? No one is loaning each other any money right now so you can’t borrow it. When you print $700B new paper currency out of thin air and pour that into the economy, the money that is currently in the “tax payers” (I hate being called that) pocket becomes less valuable, and the Dollar value goes down compared to food, clothes, shelter, etc… This bailout will cause damage to the dollar and devastate the “tax payer” by causing severe inflation.
His response: Marko told me that congressman Ron Paul has been talking about these same topics and Mr. Graves has expressed exactly these concerns about this situation. “I would say, you and the congressman are on the same page regarding this issue.”
3. I informed him that I am a member of the Campaign for Liberty, which is a young group of conservatives, many of which were outcast by the Rockefeller wing of the Republican party. Our numbers are growing everyday. We are actively seeking leaders that understand our desire to restore the rule of law to this great nation. Thanked him for his time, and told him I would be talking to him again soon.
He voted against the bill.
These comments are very encouraging, but this is politics.
I humbly suggest everyone call him at 202-225-7041 and thank him for his courage to stand up against his chain of command within the RNC.
Changes, they are a commin!!!
