  • Meet Our Featured Facebook Fan, Jamie Radtke!

    As you read in the Morning Bell on October 14, The Heritage Foundation fully supports the Tea Party’s endeavors and believes the movement is here to stay.  Those weren’t just words; the bold statement was a call to action for Heritage and its hundreds of thousands of members.  As Heritage president Ed Feulner is fond of saying: “Onward!”

    Jamie Radtke, the chairman of the Richmond, Virginia, Tea Party and this week’s Heritage Foundation Featured Fan, embodies everything that’s fresh and exciting about this movement and Heritage’s efforts to support it.  Radtke, a longtime grassroots activist who holds a Master’s degree in Public Policy, was homeschooling her children during the 2008 election season before out-of-control spending and government bailouts spurred her passionate Tea Party efforts. 

    “I was really thrilled when I got involved in the Tea Party to see Heritage reach out and provide research materials and ideas about legislation we planned to push,” Radtke told Heritage.

      Bravo for Heritage making its stand with the TEA Party. We know all about Fox News coming under an Unconstitutional 1st Amendment attack by the FCC. We know Sarah Palin was False Prosecuted a hundred times in Alaska, so illegal personal attacks, even Felony False Prosecution will be used against the Right by our Domestic Enemy. We are up against liars so profound, so profligate, Representative Democracy is attacked with it. Jamie Radtke represents a new class of American hero. Already her presence has been felt in American Politics.

      Doesn't anybody remember when it was illegal to receive Private Payments from the Government? That used to be the criminal line, as a point of Law. Before this Progressive Era there was 150 years of legal precident that said nobody gets Private Payments from the Government. It was unthinkable back then that Voters would be bought or the Vested Interest would be paid off! Nowadays everybody gets Private Payments but that just covers up all those other Private Payments of Graft and Corruption. Our National Insurance programs were shifted to massive Government Private Payments, it happened when Government raided the SSI Fund. Now it is Unemployment, it is National Insurance without a Fund (on the Federal side), it isn't Insurance at all! It looks like Social Security, some kind of open ended unfunded liability of Government. It's a crazy time bomb, so Demolition Plutocrats put off the explosion. "Four million Americans are about to lose their Unemployment just before Christmas!"

      My argument is Demolition Plutocrats are destroying our safety nets! "Raise my taxes" was the exact ploy Progressives used to install the Income Tax! And it was all about 'reliable revenues' but it never worked to stop the 'boom and bust cycle.' It merely gave Government an unfair advantage over the People. "We are immune to our own failures!" Progressives love to 'solve' the same problems over and over again. The Federal Reserve Bank never solved the 'boom and bust' problem. The Fed never stopped inflation. But what they have done is centralize economic power sufficient to bring down the rest: "If you don't do as you are told!"

      The TEA Party folks need Heritage Foundation to keep abreast of the unbelievably insideous Progressive Agenda. Study up Patriots! Our Foundation is behind you 100%!

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
