The election is almost upon us. No matter what the results, we can not give up. Just like in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, we need to realise how important and wonderful this American experiment has been. It is something we all should be willing to fight for and preserve.
Today, we have tools on hand to make it easier to get support and communicate with others. The Mackinac Center put together avideo from a conference on new media that is very interesting to watch. It is also available on our web page. Those of us who have been around for a while defending our way of life, can testify that getting things organized now and communicating with like minded individuals is a lot easier with modern technology.
What is the same is our need to affirm the correctness of freedom, liberty, and choice. As government has gradually become more and more intrusive in our life, we sometimes fail to recognize that we are losing our ability to exercise those inalienable rights, which were endowed by our Creator and not the government. We need to keep reminding those we elect to represent us, that their job is to represent us and not to make laws for their convenience or personal gain.
People have poured into this country to experience the opportunities this country allows. Slowly we are letting these opportunities slip away. The recent wake up call of the Tea Party, I hope, has reversed our decline. We can not forget what a blessing we have in this country and the need to defend her with everything in our power. Freedom is not free. It requires our constant vigilance. I count on you to help me keep watch.
The WCTA was organized in March of 1982 because of a deep concern over rapidly escalating and unjust property tax assessments. We are a non-profit, non-partisan volunteer taxpayer organization dedicated to obtaining fiscal integrity and responsibility from all levels of government.
In July of 1982, we incorporated with the State of Michigan and proceeded to build our membership. We have resolved that our elected officials should be more accountable to their constituents for their actions.
We believe that individuals can be effective but that together we can be even more effective. We hold regular membership meetings and also sponsor special and educational meetings on topics of interest to our members and the general community.
Only through a vigilant watch of the government can taxpayers ensure that our government is operating responsibly and efficiently.
Information is a very important ingredient of the WCTA. Our newsletter is sent to all members and we try to keep them apprised of existing and pending legislation that will directly affect their lives.
