Here is the audio of President Reagan’s full quote :

 

 

“No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. So, governments’ programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth.”

… Q&A with Freedomworks’ David Kirby

Published on Oct 5, 2013

” “We’ve noticed in the last fifteen months an uptick in the number of people who are actually self identifying as libertarian,” says Freedomworks’ David Kirby.

Kirby sat down with Reason magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Matt Welch to talk about why more people describe themselves as libertarian, how politicians like Senator Rand Paul and Congressman Justin Amash have come to think of themselves as libertarian and whether Glenn Beck calling himself libertarian is a good thing. 

Held each July in Las Vegas, Freedom Fest is attended by around 2,000 limited-government enthusiasts and libertarians. Reason TV spoke with over two dozen speakers and attendees and will be releasing interviews over the coming weeks. Go here for an ever-growing playlist of this year’s interviews.

About 6:16 minutes.

” This summer, some of our worst fears and suspicions about the NSA have been confirmed. We now have evidence that the NSA is actively undermining the basic security of the Internet. It iscollecting millions and millions of phone records of individuals not suspected of any crime. It issurveilling journalists.

The NSA’s overreaching surveillance is creating a climate of fear and chilling free speech. Its addiction to secrecy makes real accountability impossible

But there’s a movement forming to change all of this. And we’re about to take the next step.

On the weekend of October 26 — the 12th anniversary of the signing of the USA PATRIOT Act — thousands of people from across the political spectrum will unite in Washington, D.C. to take a stand against unconstitutional surveillance. Please join EFF in D.C. for a day of grassroots training and citizen lobbying on October 25th and a historic rally and petition delivery on October 26th.”

FreedomWorks Reveals the 2013 Recipients of the “FreedomFighter Award”

 

 

 

 

” Washington, DC- FreedomWorks announced its second annual “FreedomFighter Awards” to Members of the House and Senate who consistently voted in defense of economic freedom. Each recipient earned a minimum score of 90 percent on the FreedomWorks Congressional Scorecard during the 2012 legislative session, which often required legislators to cast politically unpopular votes inside the Beltway in order to defend liberty and strengthen the economy across the country.

 

The FreedomWorks Congressional Scorecard (at http://congress.freedomworks.org) is a ground-breaking piece of technology that has drawn an abundance of national media attention.  The user-friendly technology allows activists the ability to track the votes of Members of Congress in ‘real time’ on key issues of economic freedom. Users have the option to search for their lawmakers’ scores by zip code, or to browse each year’s scores by name, state, political party, or score rankings.

 

The premier scorers (with scores of 100 percent) among this year’s “FreedomFighter Award” winners are: Senators Jim DeMint (SC), Mike Lee (UT) and Rand Paul (KY); and Congressmen Justin Amash (MI-3), Paul Broun (GA-10), Jeff Duncan (SC-3), Jeff Flake (AZ-6), Tim Huelskamp (KS-1), Tom McClintock (CA-4), Mick Mulvaney (SC-5), and David Schweikert (AZ-5).  ”

 

 

 

 

 

Runaway Slave

“Rev. C.L. Bryant is making waves with his new documentary,Runaway Slave. I had the
opportunity to preview the film in Bossier City, Louisiana, and I found the documentary thoroughly compelling.

  Runaway Slave was conceived by Rev. Bryant and supported by private donations and
FreedomWorks. It has been well-received in private screenings so far, often receiving standing ovations, and is poised to open in select theaters across the country next week. While at Regal Cinema 9 in Bossier City, it was the highest grossing film there.”
