Our mission is to build a network of funding sources and a community of activists who will advance an agenda that embraces a philosophy of Constitutional Limited Government, the Rule of Law, Economic Freedom, and the traditional values that sustain individual initiative, personal autonomy and responsibility.

Our network community is dedicated to replacing current elected liberal central planners who believe in command and control socialism by a few elite technocrats, the few ruling the many, with leaders who support the freedom of the individual, free markets engaged in free trade, and free market solutions to healthcare, retirement, energy and education.

Dear Lowman,

The John Murtha PMA Earmark corruption investigation is getting traction. Free Market Limited Government Advocate Arizona Jeff Flake has made repeated motions to refer this matter to House Ethics Committee and they have gone nowhere. Rep. Flake is raising the profile of this issue and it Democratic House Majority Whip Steny Hoyer is, also, recommending this matter be referred to House Ethics Committee for investigation. Rep,.Murtha's earmarking operation has been a source of funding for Democratic House Speaker, the Very Left Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco. Rep. Hoyer is more traditional Democrat and is political rival to Rep. Pelosi. Derailing a key funding vehicle for Leftist Pelosi changes the Democratic House dynamic to a more moderate one although still Big Government as the solution rather than the problem will be prevailing ideology. The voters of the 12th District will have to decide whether they put self-interest in earmarks for their district above good government. There are two declared Republican challengers who reflect the profile of the district except that they are not supported by unions. And an Annapolis graduate has indicated interest in challenging John Murtha in the 2010 Democratic Primary. This is a marquee race along with Toomey Specter Sestak contests.

Defense Earmarks Draw Questions

Is stealing wrong if it is for a good cause? Taking care of his district means free money for his constituents. Fine bunch of people, our fellow citizens. And The Forgotten Taxpayer who has had his and her money taken without their consent. How do they feel?

Murtha's Defense Earmarks Draw Questions CBS Evening News: FBI Investigates Those Close To Powerful Lawmaker WASHINGTON, April 20, 2009 | by Sharyl Attkisson Was there a quid pro quo. Relocate to Johnstown and attend Murtha's Fair.

$200M Airport in the Middle of Nowhere

Murtha's dumped in nearly $200 million into this project that has virtually no passengers. It's practically a museum piece," said Steve Ellis with the Taxpayers for Common Sense.

Watch why critics say the airport is wasteful

The Airport in the Middle of No Where. Is it a wonder that our economy is a mess when politicians allocate resources on basis of political power and not on economic need and want. And the people of Johnstown get something for nothing, money without working. Better than the Midas Touch.

Puff Piece

Read this puff piece and think of The Forgotten Taxpayer? When economic decisions are politicized, the misallocations and the turmoil are only made worse. Where does the money Murtha brings to Johnstown come from? Is it okay to steal to help your district? from each according to his ability to each according to his needs? (Marx 1875) From those who have to those who have not (Alinsky 1971); "If I'm corrupt," said the congressman, "It's because I take care of my district." (John Murtha 2009)

MARK PASQUERILLA | The Murtha we know and the Washington fairy tale

"Jack Murtha is the ultimate UPS man - he has humbly delivered for us for more than 30 years.

Our western Pennsylvania region has been spared some of the harsh reckoning of this recession, largely due to Mr. Murtha's work to transform the economy in our region. When I moved back to town in 1981, we faced a tough economic decline. Ten thousand steelworkers were put on the street, and you could meet them in Central Park waiting to be called back to work. These jobs left the area forever, and only through hard teamwork did we build a new economy. While our nation fights this current recession, we face a more unique challenge - sinister extremist forces of the left and right want to pick your congressman."
