President Reagan said, "When you can't make them see the light, make them feel the heat." Washington is now completely in the dark — so a new group called Freedom Action is here to help you put the heat on. Believing in nothing more than individual rights, free markets and limited government, Freedom Action is a new grassroots activist social network aimed at putting government back inside its constitutional limits.
Every group has to start somewhere, and Freedom Action's first campaign is about Carbongate — the EPA's internal suppression of a scientific assessment skeptical of global-warming alarmism. It hopes that citizen action in the form of e-mails and other communications telling EPA to put its regulatory plans on hold until it clears up this scandal will start the process of bringing this bloated regulatory behemoth back under control. If you agree, head over there and sign up. If you're interested in the principles of the organization, get involved in the social network and contribute blogs, comments, jokes, and videos. In the spirit of the Tea Parties, the group will take its future direction from its members, as long as it is in keeping with the founding principles, so this is a chance to get your voice heard, and have the corridors of power tremble a little more at the force of the vox pop.
