Recipe for a successful 2011, By Ron Paul

By Ron Paul
U.S. House of Representatives

The year 2011 brings in a host of opportunities and challenges to America. Will we accelerate toward economic insolvency by continuing the policies that have created this crisis, or will a new Congress elected on the energy of the Tea Party movement find the courage to change course?

Reauthorization of the anti-PATRIOT Act

I do hope that those who elected them will watch their actions - and their votes in Congress - carefully. An early indication will be the upcoming vote on re-authorization of the anti-American PATRIOT Act.

All art is only done by the individual. The individual is all you ever have, and all schools only serve to classify their members as failures. E.H.

Can we set something up here

Can we set something up here with all the newly elected folk's voting record and when they stumble we send letters and call and let them know that is not what we elected you to do?
