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,

At the municipal and state level, The Forgotten Taxpayer pays for "rent seekers", corporate welfare, "economic development" for politically connected for profit and nonprofit businesses. At the national level, the Federal Reserve is debasing our currency as Sarah Palin points out.
German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble agrees

Getting Rich from Bad Government

Bob Asher Rick Santorum Ken Davis -everything wrong with Republican Party

The Thomas Jefferson Club of Bucks County, promoting Constitutional Limited Government and Individual Freedom, asks: Have the Republican Learned Nothing with regard to the offer by DC Republican Insiders of a BILLION dollar earmark to Joe Manchin of West Virginia, specifically, a coal to diesel plant, to the tune of $1 billion, plus requiring the armed forces to use converted coal for fuel.
Everything wrong with the Republican Party. They did not hear the Voters and The Forgotten Taxpayer

May I bring your attention to a 2006 July 21 news article

Spotlighting County and Municipal Spending

To County Commissioners and Candidates for County Commissioners:
Some Specific Policy Recommendations to Reduce the Cost of Government Competition and Choice and Sunshine improve Quality and Lower Cost. Respectfully submitted by A Forgotten Taxpayer

Ask your local County Chair how many solicitorships he or she has. And how much of their law practice is involved with zoning and municipal work. Who gets the Bond and Legal work and financial and engineering services for the County? How much is paid to single source vendors? What legal fees are paid to them and their inner circle by local municipalities? I think you will find that a few, connected to the insiders, get all the fees because of their connections. I think you would be surprised who is getting rich from bad government and how much The Forgotten Taxpayer pays to the Establishment's inner circle without receiving much in return. We would not be all better served and have a better life style if our money were spent on buying services that produce a better living standard?

We cannot hold our elected and governmental officials accountable unless we know what they are doing which is point of the Sunshine Laws and unless we can "follow the money". The Forgotten Taxpayer cannot no longer afford to be passive.

Sarah Palin is Right About Inflation

Low prices mean a higher standard of living

Debasing the Currency with computer generated cash is counterproductive, deceitful and impoverishes the American citizen and

The Forgotten Taxpayer

Sarah Palin is ahead of the curve

Low inflation is still inflation and the devaluation of the currency by the central government created bank monopoly and the internationally weakening dollar mean we will be using more dollars to buy same amount and, as nominal costs increase as a result of the weakening dollar, our standard of living declines.
Governor Palin is right. Inflation is rearing its ugly head.

Governor Palin skillfully cites the Wall Street Journal against the Wall Street Jounrnal and it is obvious and evident she is right and Mr. Sudeep Reddy of Real Time Economics is wrong.

Even modest inflation in food prices is still inflation and, as anyone who has actually gone to the supermarket or Trader Joe's knows, food is an increasing percentage of income in down economic times. The elitists at the WSJ need to get out into the real world a bit more and not credit government statistics created by fallible government bureaucrats. Governor Palin speaks to real people; elites speak to themselves.

"Ms. Palin certainly misspoke when she said inflation has already shown up in the grocery aisles. So far, in general terms, it hasn't. Real Time Economics' Sudeep Reddy, who pointed that out, was quite right."
Palin Responds to Real Time Economics and We Respond
Says Sarah Palin: Mr. Reddy takes aim at this. He writes: "Grocery prices haven't risen all that significantly, in fact." Really? That's odd, because just last Thursday, November 4, I read an article in Mr. Reddy's own Wall Street Journal titled "Food Sellers Grit Teeth, Raise Prices: Packagers and Supermarkets Pressured to Pass Along Rising Costs, Even as Consumers Pinch Pennies."

..."overall food price inflation has been historically low for the past year. This is not surprising. Weak demand, high unemployment and thrifty shoppers have led retailers to keep many prices from rising despite the rising cost of some commodities, including coffee and sugar."
My point is that low inflation is still inflation, is it not?
