Don’t Let Norquist Win!

“Jan. 1st is not the end of the fight,” Norquist said on C-SPAN. “It’s the beginning of the fight.”

That’s right, and we are in the fight. We have to let our elected leaders know that we the people are who they are beholden to, not Grover Norquist the lobbyist. Sign the petition, tell your friends, get in this fight. Because without the masses of people supporting our leaders to stand up to Norquist, we will have many more years of the same economic problems.

    FOR SHAME—A NEW LOW

    Lobbyist Norquist has just given his permission to hundreds of US duly elected
    Members of congress to “vote as they see fit”. We must all take shame in allowing
    Our so-called representative democracy to be bought.—for our so-called representatives to need permission to vote as we elected them to do.;.

      Thank you so much for your comment. I agree. It is easy to be cynical, when you look at how our government has been influenced by lobbyists to work more for corporations and industry than individuals. Whether health care, the environment, gun control or taxes, we have gone down this road before. But with Norquist, it is one man who such a hold over so many of our leaders. I know that shouldn’t be more egregious than industry lobbyists having that hold over our leaders, but it is somehow.

      Spread the word, because one thing I fine is that even though Norquist is not a behind-the-scenes guy, even though he is out there talking about his beliefs regularly, so many people don’t understand what his pledge is and how he has a hold over our leaders. They think he is just another pundit voicing his opinion. I think if people understood why he is so influential, they would be outraged. I hope.

      Thanks again,
      Linda
