I Want My Money Back

If you really want to get your representative's attention, form a peaceful and legal insurrection by numbers. Vote with your dollars. Call or write today and ask for your money back. The more, the greater the influence. Email this to your representatives:

Dear [Representative],

Current events indicate the United States is in crises. Government services are stressed and people are somehow surviving without jobs. The Federal Government is funding itself in weekly increments. The people’s representatives are arguing party nonsense versus pragmatic solutions. Very little, if anything, is being accomplished to the people’s satisfaction.

Today the people are being taxed heavily and the social contracts drawn decades ago are being redrawn. When budget adjustments are made, it is done in the areas of education and social services for those unable to help themselves. Educating the young and willing, and taking care of the old and weak define the ethos of the United States. Education and caring for those who can not care for themselves are precisely what shouldn't be touched. They are cultural ideals. The economic future depends on the handling of both. Therefore, as my representative, I instruct you to put the real topical elephants on the table, support practical solutions, and do not suffer the quality of education and care for those who can't care for themselves.

“A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government.” (Thomas Jefferson was the original Republican!)

The U.S. Government has shown through action and inaction that it cannot be trusted, especially with money. For these reasons, I am justified in requesting my money back, and being taken quite seriously in doing so. If government can't be relied upon, then give us our money back. We can put it to better use ourselves.

I Want My Money Back!
