Anti-Porkulus Protest in Seattle
By Byron Dazey
In the fine tradition of dissent that we have been told for eight years is so patriotic, blogger Liberty Belle organized an anti-Porkulus protest in the heart of liberal Seattle. She’s not under any illusions that it will prevent Obama from signing the bill, but it is important that conservatives do some organizing in their community and push back against this and the other spending bills that are sure to follow. And it’s not just conservatives. Liberty Belle started off by emphasizing that this is an issue for everyone regardless of party. Last time I checked we are all stuck with the same economy regardless of political affiliation.
This man’s sign captures the essence of what we are facing. FULL STORY AND PICTURES.

TAXPAYERS IN REVOLT
David Beito has brought to light a remarkable and previously unknown chapter of the Great Depression: its tax revolts. They were widespread and systematic, and they made such huge progress in some places that they threatened to bring local and state government to its knees.
Here we have an aggressive resistance to the New Deal, the form of some 1500 anti-tax movements in the United States that formed to resist FDR's looting. It's no wonder historians before Beito completely ignored this great movement.
Beito explores their driving force, the leadership, the ideological basis, their progress and their dealings with the press. He shows how they worked the system to curb tax increases and roll back the taxes in place. ORDER HERE.
