Repeal Obamacare Now






Keep your Promises Mitch McConnell 

PETITION: Repeal ObamaCare Now


24 June 2017


Dear Friend of Liberty,

“We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”

Then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi uttered those infamous words about the ObamaCare scheme they were preparing to RAM into law in 2010.

Well It’s deja vu all over again in the U.S. Senate these days.

News reports are everywhere that the U.S. Senate will take up an “ObamaCare” replacement scheme next week. . .

So what’s in it?

It’s a secret!


Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is hiding the bill under lock and key, away from the American peopleaway from the media, and even away from his Senate colleagues.

Without your action today, I’m afraid we’re going to be in for an utter DISASTER.

The small details that have dripped out about the Senate bill suggest that instead of making good on their repeated campaign promises to repeal ObamaCare, the Senate bill will be worse than the watered-down version passed in the House.

That’s why I’m counting on your IMMEDIATE action.

Will you please sign your “KEEP YOUR PROMISES” petition to Senate Majority Leader McConnell at once?

As you’ll see, this petition insists that Senator McConnell cease and desist with his phony ObamaCare Replacement In Name Only scheme and instead bring a full ObamaCare repeal bill to the Senate floor at once.

The truth is, ever since its passage in late 2009, ObamaCare has been a disaster in every sense of the word as:

***    At least 300,000 small business jobs have been lost due to the law’s high costs and regulations -- and at least 10,000 businesses have been forced to shut their doors;

***    ObamaCare’s employer-sponsored premiums have soared by 32% since 2010 while individual market premiums have skyrocketed by 140%;

***    4.7 million people had their health insurance plans cancelled by ObamaCare’s implementation and were forced to enroll in more expensive plans;

***    Competition has been thrown out the window as 70% of the counties across the country now have only one or two insurance providers;

***    Medicaid is being stretched to the breaking point -- with projections that new enrollees will send Medicaid costs soaring to $3.8 TRILLION over the next decade.
Yet, politicians in Washington, D.C. are handing us nothing but their usual games -- insisting on delays and now even secrecy to work on a “replacement plan.”
How much faith do you have that a good deal is going to emerge from Washington, D.C. politicians meeting behind closed doors?
Using the budget reconciliation process -- which requires only 51 votes instead of the usual 60 needed to overcome a filibuster -- Senator McConnell should have the votes right now to simply repeal ObamaCare.

NOW.

But instead of repealing ObamaCare, Mitch McConnell and his allies may make ObamaCare a permanent part of the American government system without your action today.

That’s why I’m counting on your immediate action.

With your help, Campaign for Liberty is prepared to pull out all the stops to make Congress listen by:

>>>  Using mail and email to mobilize Americans to insist that Congress use reconciliation to repeal ObamaCare;

>>>  A non-stop PR blitz to explain, from a physician’s perspective, why ObamaCare must be repealed NOW!

>>>  Social Media and Internet ads to explain to younger Americans how ObamaCare is a raw deal and urge them to insist that reconciliation be used for nothing less than full ObamaCare repeal.

I’m counting on you to make all of this happen.  It won’t be cheap, of course.

But if you and I don’t run this program, I’m afraid ObamaCare could end up being cemented on the federal books for good.

So please agree to your most generous contribution of $300 TODAY.

I know that’s a lot.  

I know that’s far more than you’ve ever been able to give in the past.

But you and I must spring into action.

Of course, if $300 is just too much, please agree to $200 or at least $100 right away.

The ONLY way to finally repeal ObamaCare is for Congress to stop running scared and stand and FIGHT.  

With a showdown headed for next week, we’re running out of time.

So I’m counting on your IMMEDIATE action.

Please sign your petition and agree to your most generous contribution of $300, $200, or at least $100 IMMEDIATELY.

For liberty,


Dr. Ron Paul
Chairman

P.S.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell won’t even allow the American people to see the supposed ObamaCare replacement scheme he’s working on.

You and I both know this is bad, bad news.

That’s why I’m counting on you to please sign your KEEP YOUR PROMISES petition to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell IMMEDIATELY.

As you’ll see, these petitions insist that he cease and desist with his phony ObamaCare Replacement In Name Only scheme and instead bring a full ObamaCare repeal bill to the Senate floor at once.

And if at all possible, please agree to your most generous contribution of $300, $200, or at least $100 TODAY!

S. 21 Pass the Reins Act Now





 Rand Paul  | 19 May 2017 


PETITION: Pass The Reins Act Now

S.21-Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny Act of 2017


H.R.26-Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny Act of 2017

24 June 2017




Dear Friend of Liberty,

During the last few months, you and I have seen the Deep State attempt to secure its dominance over the American republic . . . perhaps more brazenly than we’ve ever seen before.

The abuse of government’s spying powers should make every American shudder -- and more determined than ever to seize back control of our destiny from those who would rule us by decree.

The REINS (Regulations from the Executive In Need of Scrutiny) Act (H.R. 26 / S. 21) is a key part of shifting the balance of power back toward WE THE PEOPLE.

For decades, Big Government bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. have (UNCONSTITUTIONALLY) ruled virtually every aspect of American life.

You and I have been almost powerless to do anything about it.

The good news is, if passed, the REINS Act could stop the power-hungry bureaucrats at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, EPA, Department of Education, FDA, IRS, Health and Human Services -- and those in virtually every other government agency -- cold!

Sadly, despite recently passing through Senate committee, I’ve learned of a plot by some members of the U.S. Senate who are secretly working to water down -- or even KILL -- the REINS Act before it can even be voted on!

That’s why I’m counting on your IMMEDIATE action.

Will you please sign the petition to your U.S. Senators right away?

As you’ll see, these petitions insist your U.S. Senators cosponsor and seek roll-call votes on the REINS Act as written -- with NO amendments to water down or render this bill toothless.

And if possible, please agree to a generous contribution as well.

Please agree to $100, $250, or $500 if you can afford it.  Or if that’s too much, please agree to $50, $25, or even just $10.

On paper, this vote should come down to just a handful of senators. . .

You see, while the bill passed the House with overwhelming Republican votes, there are many members of the Senate in BOTH parties who represent states hit hard by the Obama administration’s regulatory tirades.

Many represent states President Trump won, and they are already nervous about their reelections.

So, turning a handful is very possible and could break a filibuster and guarantee REINS’ passage -- if Republican “moderates” don’t work with liberal Democrats to sabotage it.

Sadly, that’s what I’m worried about right now.

Instead of daring senators who are wavering on REINS to vote “NO!” and risk their political careers, some are looking for ways to weaken REINS by increasing the threshold for a congressional vote far past $100 million!

And it’s all being done in secret because they’re scared of you.

But without your action today, I’m afraid this could be an enormous missed opportunity for you and me to finally rein in out-of-control government.

Just consider the madness we witnessed during Obama’s presidency where:

*** Government agencies added 20,642 new regulations at a rate averaging almost 80,000 pages a year!

*** New regulations inflicted more than $100 BILLION in economic damage from 2009-2016!

*** The EPA alone issued 4,000 new rules!

Estimates are that federal regulations as a whole cost the U.S. economy over $2 trillion every year! 
But if passed, the REINS Act would prohibit out-of-control government bureaucrats from imposing major regulations without a vote by Congress.

In other words, the FCC, EPA, and TSA can make all the “recommendations” they want, but they’ll mean absolutely nothing unless passed by Congress with a majority vote.

So you and I will have the chance to mobilize to DEFEAT these regulations -- or hold politicians who vote for them accountable!

In short, REINS strips these massive and bloated unconstitutional bureaucrats of most of their power -- paving the way for their outright ELIMINATION.

Talk about Draining the Swamp!

That’s why I’m counting on you to sign your petition right away.

And if possible, please also agree to your most generous contribution as well, to help Campaign for Liberty pull out all the stops to pass REINS.

Using direct mail and email -- in addition to Internet, radio, and newspaper advertising -- my goal is to light a fire under certain members of the U.S. Senate whose votes are up in the air.

With your help, this could be the difference!

After all, if he’s hit with a firestorm of grassroots pressure, does Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia really want to vote against the REINS Act -- especially after complaining non-stop about how President Obama’s EPA destroyed coal jobs?

That’s just one example.

After the shock of the 2016 election, no Congressman, Senator -- or President -- wants to face reelection having gone on record AGAINST a bill to stop unaccountable Washington, D.C. bureaucrats from running our lives.

So just forcing a Senate vote on the REINS Act puts you and me in a win-win situation -- if we can force a vote and stop a weak-kneed “compromise.”

That’s why I’m counting on your support.

First, won’t you please sign your petitions to your senators, urging them to cosponsor and seek roll-call votes on the REINS Act?

And then, if you can, I hope you’ll also rush me your most generous contribution -- $100, $250, $500, or even more if you can possibly afford it.

I know that’s a lot to ask for.

But friend, should you and I succeed in passing the REINS Act, it would be a massive step toward seizing back control of our destiny from those who would seek to rule us by decree.

Bloated and unconstitutional federal bureaucracies will see much of their power stripped -- paving the way for their outright ELIMINATION -- and the balance of power will tilt back toward WE THE PEOPLE!

Of course, if $100, $250, or $500 is just too much, I hope you’ll agree to a contribution of $50, $25, or even $10.

So please sign your petitions and agree to your most generous contribution of $10, $25, $50, or even $100, $250, or $500 IMMEDIATELY!

For Liberty,



Dr. Ron Paul
Chairman

P.S. The Deep State attempts to secure its dominance over the American public is just one more reason the American people need to seize back control over our destiny from those who would seek to rule every aspect of American life by decree.

But even after passing a Senate committee, I’ve learned some senators are secretly working to water down or KILL the REINS Act.  But they’re scared of what you will say, so this is our chance to make our voices heard!

So please sign your petition and agree to your most generous contribution of $10, $25, $50, or even $100, $250, $500, or more TODAY!

S.J. RES. 42 Stop The Saudi Arms Deal



PETITION: NO ARMS FOR TERRORISTS

7 June 2017 


"Dear Friend of Liberty,

Will Washington, D.C. never learn?

For years now, politicians in BOTH parties have pursued the same misguided policies in their failed effort to control terrorism.

But a quick glance around the world today – from France to Britain to Syria and Iraq – show those efforts are falling flat on their faces. . .

Perhaps no policy is more ridiculous than the practice of selling weapons to those who could use them to do us harm.

Yet, that’s exactly what the U.S. Government is doing right now by “partnering” with Saudi Arabia – even though this authoritarian government continues to finance radical terrorist groups around the world.

Recent news reports tell us the White House is caving to the demands of pro-“status quo” insiders and deep-pocketed lobbyists by making a deal to provide hordes of military equipment to Saudi Arabia.

According to the State Department’s own press release, this will include “tanks, artillery, counter-mortar radars, armored personnel carriers, [and] helicopters.”

Worse, you can virtually guarantee this equipment will fall into the wrong hands. . .

That’s the bad news.  The good news is my son, Senator Rand Paul, has introduced legislation (S.J. Res. 42) to block this deal.

But it won’t happen without your help.

So please stand with Rand and Campaign for Liberty by signing your “NO ARMS FOR TERRORISTS!” Petition to your U.S. Senators.

And make your most generous contribution of $300, $200, or $100 to help Campaign for Liberty’s efforts to stop arming terrorists.

The truth is, if the deal goes through, it will further radicalize the Middle East, create even more displaced refugees – many vulnerable to radicalization – and create new resentments among the people who suffer the consequences of our alliances with authoritarian governments in order to enact “regime change.”

The dirty secret is that Saudi Arabia is expected to use this military equipment for regime change efforts in Yemen.

While we are told the Saudis will use the equipment to fight terrorists, it is more likely to be used to turn Yemen into a base for ISIS and other terrorist groups.

Just like Syria. . .

Just like Libya. . .

And just like Iraq where U.S. troops are still fighting 13 years after launching what we were promised would be a cakewalk.

But despite this sad history, the U.S. Government continues to pursue the same old insane polices that empower terrorists, drain our wallets, and put our safety at risk.

Clearly the only way this policy will change is if WE THE PEOPLE demand that Congress exercise its Constitutional functions and force the president to abandon this failed foreign policy.

That’s why Rand’s legislation (S.J. Res. 42) is so important right now.

Rand is committed to forcing the Senate to vote on it, but to pass it, he needs a massive show of support from the grassroots.

That is why Campaign for Liberty is launching a major program in support of S.J. Res. 42.

If we can raise the funds, we plan to not just support this bill, but run the same type of programs that have been so effective in changing the debate on monetary policy and civil liberties.

As with our other efforts, the key is letting Congress know that the people are watching and expect them to reject the latest scheme to bring so-called “democracy” and “freedom” to the Middle East.

This scheme would only serve to help Saudi Arabia create the type of chaos in which groups like ISIS thrive.

So please sign your NO ARMS FOR TERRORISTS! Petition today.

And if you can, please make your most generous contribution to Campaign for Liberty of $300, $200, or $100.

Your donation will help us mobilize more Americans to put the heat on Congress to do their job and stop the transfer of weapons to a regime with a history of exporting terrorists to its neighbors, Europe, and even to the U.S.

It will take a massive effort to stop this deal.

You see, deals like this don’t just harm our security, they are quite profitable to the large defense contractors who have one of the most effective lobbying operations in Washington, D.C.

These defense contractors are able to fund hordes of K Street lobbyists and think-tanks of left, right, and center that produce heaps of propaganda making the case for this type of intervention and expanding away the policy’s failures.

When I was in Congress, I saw how effective the military-industrial complex’s propaganda operation was. . .

Whenever I dared challenge the status quo on foreign intervention, I was informed that the military-industrial complex’s paid “experts” considered my view “na├»ve” and that the Founding Fathers’ policy of peace and goodwill to all was “impractical” in the modern world.

I was even once informed by a Congressman who was considered a leading expert on the Constitution that the requirement that Congress declare war was outdated!

Members of Congress told me they felt safe parroting the views of the so-called “experts” because the average American did not care about foreign policy enough to learn the truth behind the establishment’s lies.

So imagine their reaction when the petitions start rolling in from the liberty grassroots telling them the people see through the lies peddled by pro-interventionist think-tanks, lobbying firms, the media, and their paymasters in the military-industrial complex. . .

It will be similar to their reaction when they started getting pressure to support Audit the Fed!

Prior to 2008, the idea that grassroots liberty army would flood Congress with petitions demanding they Audit the Fed was unheard of. . .

But then came Campaign for Liberty. . .

We made Audit the Fed a central issue in American politics, and we turned a rollback of the surveillance state from a fringe idea to a serious policy proposal.

Now it is time for us to do on foreign policy what we did on monetary policy and civil liberties - starting with killing this deal with Saudi Arabia.

Defeating this deal could be the beginning of finally forcing Congress to reassess its role in foreign policy and ending the hyper-interventionist policy that has not made our nation safer.

So please sign your “NO ARMS FOR TERRORISTS!” Petition today.

And make your most generous contribution of $300, $200, or $100 to help Campaign for Liberty stop this deal."


For Liberty,


Ron Paul
Chairman

P.S.  Recent news reports show that the White House is caving to the demands of pro-“status quo” insiders and deep-pocketed lobbyists by making a deal to provide hordes of military equipment to Saudi Arabia.

According to the State Department’s own press release, this will include “tanks, artillery, counter-mortar radars, armored personnel carriers, helicopters.”

Fortunately, my son, Senator Rand Paul, his introduced S.J. Res. 42, which would block this deal.  And Rand is committed to forcing the Senate to vote on it.

But Rand is up against the entire foreign policy establishment, as well as the might of the military-industrial complex.

And the only thing that can overcome those forces is a massive outpouring of support from the liberty grassroots.

So please sign your “NO ARMS FOR TERRORISTS!” Petition to your U.S. Senators.

And make your most generous contribution of $300, $200, or $100.

Audit The Fed 23,719 Petitions


1 June 2017 

Dear Friend of Liberty

"So you did what you were asked and signed a petition.  

What happened with it?

Sadly, with some Washington, D.C. organizations, sometimes the answer is “nothing.”

But last Friday -- while most Americans were preparing for the long Memorial Day weekend -- C4L staff was on Capitol Hill delivering the stacks of the 23,719 Audit The Fed Petitions we’ve gathered over the past few weeks for our cosponsor push.

Norm Singleton delivering Audit the Fed
petitionsAs you’ll see here, I started right where I thought I could make the most difference -- House Speaker Paul Ryan’s office!

Thanks to your support, banksters and slick lobbyists are more scared than ever that you and I will finally get the job done on Audit the Fed.

We’ve already been through a House hearing (where I personally testified), and passed Audit the Fed through the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

Today, we stand at 110 cosponsors on Rep. Thomas Massie’s (R-KY) House Bill (H.R. 24) and 14 on Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-KY) Senate Bill (S. 16).

With your continued support and generosity, Campaign for Liberty is working hard to ensure we keep the pressure on!

I know we’ve asked quite a bit of you lately.  But we have some critical work ahead of us in the coming weeks, so my hope is you’ll agree to a generous contribution of $250, $100, $50, or even $25.

Even if you can only chip in $10 right now, it would help make a big difference.

I know it’s easy to get caught up in legislative minutiae and political tugs-of-war.

But you and I can’t forget what a golden opportunity we have to take a SLEDGEHAMMER to the very foundations of everything we hate about Washington, D.C.

Whether it’s out-of-control spending, ObamaCare, or misguided foreign policy adventurism, the Federal Reserve lies at the root of it all by printing money out of thin air to pay the bills when taxation doesn’t make ends meet.

Exposing the Fed would finally show the American people just how corrupt this secretive institution is and light the fuse for Big Government’s destruction.

That’s why we HAVE to keep fighting.  

If we don’t, our country’s days are numbered.

Our (still growing) $19.9 trillion debt will soon drown us all. 

That’s why these petition deliveries are just part of our effort to ensure we generate as many House cosponsors as we can.

The closer we get to a majority of the U.S. House, the harder it will be for House Speaker Paul Ryan to stand in the way of a vote.

Of course, if you and I make the pressure hot enough, he may just relent and hand us a vote early. 

But as many folks have learned the hard way, hoping for the best only ensures Washington, D.C. does its worst!

So Campaign for Liberty is also planning to run Internet and social media ads to help turn up the pressure on politicians who have supported Audit the Fed in the past, but are refusing to now that they believe it could actually happen.

We won’t be afraid to call them out by name.

And I’m afraid some of those names are going to surprise you.

We’re also going to turn the screws on congressional leadership like House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as well.

With your help, we’re going to let them know that -- especially as hated as they are among the grassroots -- a betrayal on Audit the Fed could be the last nail in their political coffins.

We’re not going to play games.

We’re going to play hardball.

With nearly 80% of the American people in agreement that the Federal Reserve should be audited, we hold all the cards.

Not them.  Not the Big Government elites who seem so intent on destroying the last vestiges of freedom.

Your support is working.  

Your help has brought the Audit the Fed issue from the seemingly out-of-nowhere just a decade ago to the verge of reality.

Dr. Paul’s unflinching leadership and commitment to liberty sounded the alarm.

But it’s your continued support that’s needed to keep the pressure on and help us cross the remaining hurdles we face!

So please, if at all possible, agree to your most generous contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50, or $25 today.

Even if all you can do is $10, it would make a tremendous difference.

Thank you for all you do!

In liberty,"

Norm Singleton

"P.S. Our cosponsor push is just the beginning of what we have planned for Congress on Audit the Fed.

I have also planned a massive social media and Internet ad campaign targeting Members of Congress who are refusing to cosponsor Audit the Fed now that they think it might actually pass.

I’m also preparing to turn the screws on congressional leaders.

But I’m counting on your support.  Please, if at all possible, agree to your most generous contribution of $250, $100, $50, $25, or even $10 right away in support of C4L’s plans to pass Audit the Fed!"

Stop The Saudi Arms Deal








Dear Friend of Liberty
" It doesn’t need to happen.
Last week, notice was given to Congress that new weapons deals that could potentially amount to $300 BILLION dollars or more were in place for Saudi Arabia.
It was treated as a done deal by everyone, especially the media.
Well, they weren’t counting on you and me.
I’ve started my part by introducing a privileged motion in the Senate called a “Resolution of Disapproval” that will FORCE the Senate to vote on this arms deal.
And by law, that vote MUST take place in the next 30 days. They can’t filibuster it, stop it, or otherwise try to hide it.
So I’m asking you to do your part too. First, add your name to my RESOLUTION OF DISAPPOVAL today.
And also while you’re there, help RANDAC spread the word on this important fight.
Sometime in the next 30 days, Congress will be forced to vote on whether or not we should sell arms to a county that:
** Actively bombing Yemen, including civilian population, using our weapons and illegally using our technical assistance.
** From the 28 pages of the 9/11 report and elsewhere, shown to be one of the world’s leading funders of terrorist activity and extremist ideology.
** Has a miserable human rights records. Civil rights, the rights of women in their society – it is all abysmal. 
To put is simply – the United States has no business arming the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. We also have no business getting ourselves even further into the mess that is the civil wars of the Middle East.
So let’s do this together. Let’s stop them.
The resolution I’m using was little known until last year even though it has existed since the 1970s.  I was the first Senator to use it to stop an arms deal, at the time with Pakistan.  Though our vote fell short then, the public outcry you and I raised then actually forced the administration to pull the deal back.
In other words, the last time we did this, we won.
Let’s do it again. Let’s make our voices heard. Voices for peace, for not arming extremism.
You can lend your voice and your support here.
It’s important you help fund this effort by RANDPAC. We have just a matter of days to get the word out. So please help today.

Thank you for all you do."

Senator Rand Paul talks about the recent weapons deal with Saudi Arabia. Paul believes the US should not have sold weapons to Saudia Arabia because they cannot be trusted.
  Published May 25, 2017 | Business Insider 

The US will provide over $110 billion in weapons to Saudi Arabia in the largest weapons deal in US history. In the deal, Saudi Arabia will buy a number of weapons and vehicles from the US, including the THAAD missile defense system, and 150 Black-hawk helicopters.
