    Subject: Cut or Shut It Down 








    Dear Liberty Activist,

    Republican leaders are about to cave in to President Obama on cutting spending.

    Is that what you want?

    If not, I need you to contact your congressman, Speaker John Boehner, and Majority Leader Eric Cantor today.

    I'll give you their contacts in just a moment.

    Recent reports indicate that House Speaker John Boehner, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and Vice President Joe Biden are scheming behind closed doors to cut a deal to keep government spending money it does not have when the current continuing resolution expires on April 8th.

    This "compromise" would nick spending by $33 billion, barely 1% of our budget and 2% of our deficit.

    Republicans were not elected to nibble around the edges in a desperate attempt to keep the government open for business so they can "save face."

    Liberty and Tea Party activists sent Republicans to Washington with marching orders to either get spending under control immediately, or shut the government down.

    That's why it's vital you contact your congressman, Rep. Denny Rehberg, by phone TODAY at (202) 225-3211 and send a clear message that if they lack the courage to shut the government down to bring out of control spending to heel, you will find someone else who will.

    After you contact your representative, please contact Speaker John Boehner by phone in Washington at 202-225-6205, and/or at his home district office at 513-779-5400, and Majority Leader Eric Cantor's Washington office by phone at 202-225-2815, and his home district offices at 804-747-4073 or 540-825-8960.

    Inform them Republicans were not elected so they could compete for the title of "Mr. Spineless."

    You put them in power to slam the brakes on the runaway spending train that is driving our nation off a cliff.

    And the only way to stop that train is to make serious cuts now, or shut it down until they are made.

    You see, Speaker Boehner and Republican leadership are curled up in a fetal position and terrified over the prospect of being blamed for a government shutdown if they hold their ground on spending cuts.

    So rather than standing up for slashing spending, and shutting the government down if that is what it takes, they are scurrying to the political safe haven of "compromise."

    Please, contact your congressman, Rep. Denny Rehberg, by phone at (202) 225-3211 and inform your representative that the only thing they have to fear is your wrath if they refuse to rein in out of control spending.

    After you contact your representative, please contact Speaker John Boehner by phone in Washington at 202-225-6205, and/or at his home district office at 513-779-5400, and Majority Leader Eric Cantor's Washington office by phone at 202-225-2815, and his home district offices at 804-747-4073 or 540-825-8960.

    Demand they draw a line in the sand.  If Democrats won't agree to massive spending cuts, Republicans must shut the government down.

    As Samuel Adams once said, "It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds."

    It is up to you and me to create a wildfire of opposition to stop the Republican sellout on spending.

    No compromise.  No Deals.  No photo ops.  Either hundreds of billions of dollars in spending are cut immediately, or the government gets shut down.


    In Liberty,


    John Tate
    President


    P.S. Recent reports indicate that House Speaker John Boehner, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and Vice President Joe Biden are scheming behind closed doors to cut a deal to keep government spending money it does not have when the current continuing resolution expires on April 8th.

    That's why it's vital you contact your congressman, Rep. Denny Rehberg, by phone at (202) 225-3211 and send a clear message that if they lack the courage to shut the government down to bring out of control spending to heel, you will find someone else who will.

    Demand they abandon the coward's path of compromise and stand and fight to slash government spending, or else shut it down.

    "Demand they draw a line in the sand.  If Democrats won't agree to massive spending cuts, Republicans must shut the government down."

    So far, all they've cut from are programs which help poor people....

    Any chance they can think of anything else to cut? Or do women, working poor and seniors have to take the brunt of your cuts?

    When are they going to get to the meat on the bone.....the military, the very uber rich, and corporate welfare?

    Get this:
    The Repubs in Congress are going after the AARP, cause they're tax-exempt...they want to "raise taxes" on the AARP!!!!

    That's why Ron Paul said he supported the oil subsidies...he said to take them away would, in effect, be a tax increase. Well....?
    Isn't this the same thing?
