Political Live Wires

About Us

Dedication to the cause means stopping the intrusive, over-reaching government whenever and whereever possible. Unfortunately, those who benefit from big government, both multimillion dollar "non-profits" and left-wing special interests have vast financial resources that they use as seed money (or "investments") to grow government to further their bottom line.

Your "investment" in stopping the out of control growth of government will come back to you by stopping tax increases and, on occation, ending programs that should have sunset long ago.

In his address to Congress on August 12, 1974, President Gerald Ford said "A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have."

On January 20, 1981, in his first inaugural address, Ronald Reagan told the nation:
"Government is not a solution to our problem, government is the problem."

Your contribution is not tax deductable, but will ultimately go towards lowering your taxes.
