If you're on Twitter... get involved with Top Conservative on Twitter

Top Conservatives on Twitter (www.topconservativesontwitter.com) is growing and they are acting. If you go to the site you'll see they have a number of action projects. One that I'm involved in is the one to stop the spending bill.

If you're not on Twitter, check out the "101 on Twitter" on the left sidebar. It may seem overwhelming at first, but soon you'll be tweetin' with the best of them. Put #TCOT in your profile, sign up on the TCOT website and you'll make friends fast.

I encourage you to sign up for one or more of their action projects. You know I've been doing all I can to stop the "stimulus" package. The Democrats are using the bad economy to push through every pet project and entitlement program imaginable in the guise of a "stimulus" package.

I know I'm preaching to the choir. Most of you KNOW this is bad for our country, it's bad for democracy and it's bad for the economy in the long run.

Another group that is working hard and doing great work in fighting the stimulus plan is W.A.M. (Wake Up America Movement). You'll find them at www.wam08.org. Sign up on the site. They send out great info and are working hard to protect our freedoms.

Here's a few stories on the stimulus that popped up today. When contacting your Senator regarding voting NO for the stimulus package, be sure to call your Governor, too. It seems some of them are pressuring Congress to vote yes... Geez. Short sited to say the least.

GOP governors press Congress to pass stimulus bill
Most Republican governors have broken with their GOP colleagues in Congress and are pushing for passage of President Barack Obama's economic aid plan that would send billions to states for education, public works and health care. Their state treasuries drained by the financial crisis, governors would welcome the money from Capitol Hill, where GOP lawmakers are more skeptical of Obama's spending priorities.

Debunking the Myth that Government Spending Stimulates the Economy
Several years ago, the Media Research Center joined with then-Cato economist Stephen Moore (now with the Wall Street Journal) on a book “Dollars and Nonsense” debunking the news media’s top ten economic myths. First on the list was the canard that government spending and deficits stimulate the economy, a premise demolished in an essay written by the Nobel-prize winning economist Milton Friedman.

Obama presses Senate on stimulus
President Obama pressed the Senate to move quickly on his massive economic-stimulus plan, saying Saturday that Americans "have little patience" for political bickering and noting that while the bill isn't perfect, it can jump-start job creation.
