CPAC Interview: Andrew Moylan, NTU

posted at 1:33 pm on February 26, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

Andrew Moylan of the National Taxpayers Union has a new effort to organize conservatives in opposition to Democratic tax policies. Their new “Team Taxpayer” wants people to text “FIGHT” to 54608 in order to gain clout in Congress through numbers. Andrew and I talked about tax policies and the need to get to solutions and not just personalities:

Yeah, that guy looks like a complete tool.

Seriously. WTF? If you’re too girly to grow a proper beard, don’t try and grow the scant patches you can and try to claim it as a ‘style’.

LimeyGeek on February 26, 2009 at 2:11 PM

Get over the hair thing.

Lance pork pustules.
Tip the canoe and tattoo too.

Go see the taxpayers’ site.

And we wonder why people don’t want to get involved in conservative activism. What the heck does his beard have to do with anything?

Image. Was it really that hard to figure out?

The lady talking to Rush right now is making a very clear point. What you can afford now, buy if you need. Because the day is coming that you either can’t afford what you need, or if you can afford retirement, your funding will be confiscated by the Socialists.

FDR did it for Precedent Obama.

Rush is pointing out that regardless of income bracket, your taxes WILL be going up. The tactic of earning less in order to avoid high taxation is based on a false premise.

FDR sought inflation. To this day, we suffer those direct consequences. Of itself, a recession rebalances the economy, keeping the fiscal pendulum within a symmetric compensating pulse. BUT today our inflation and recession exist beyond total bankruptcy, having gone wild into the Twilight Zone of irreconcilable debt with NO MANUFACTURING BASE; even the energy industry is outlawed. FDR NEVER OUTLAWED INDUSTRY, but today’s Socialists have. And the Socialists only rationale is to absolutely destroy everything in order to remake the world in its own image.

Work on your own.

Direct line to Congress for DIALOG with your Congressman:

Good. Unify opposition against corruption and loss of Constitutional protection.

I heard a law maker reasoning that his additional text to the FDR socialist legacy “Fairness Doctrine” only enhanced the current law.

The “Fairness Doctrine” should be attacked now as UNCONSTITUTIONAL. “Free Press” CAN NOT be limited to a paper industry even as that paper industry becomes obsolete. The “Fairness Doctrine” of Socialist monopoly of media sources was never Constitutionally founded. It should be repealed!

BHO Tax Plan roll out: raise rates %
We already know that Obama says “tax cut” though that very thing is a tax increase to provide a differential being quoted by The One. “Tax by other means”–Obama.

Public Outcry
CUT TAXES!

Projected Effects
Dynamic Fluctuate vs. Static Stagnation ???

“Optimal Rate” Obama’s equivalent of FDR’s pre-WWI “fair wage”?

When there are NO GAINS, there is no capital gain to tax. Obama is bleeding us dry. Cut the damned taxation of skeletal structure. It is as though

MFG & ENERGY!!!!!
Exactly what I said, that Obama/SOROS is overwriting everything FDR ever did to compound and permeate all things at once into his Federal Socialist nation. Mfg. is not limited to autos or aircraft or military defense industry. Even “green” mfg is not happening–too expensive to mfg anything under Obama’s taxation and federal usurping of business as a socialist state/nation industry.

Moylan, great interview. Very good to learn of Moylan and the NTU.

Ed, excellent networking of conservatives!!!
Bravo.

In the five or six months that I’ve been following HA this is the best post I’ve seen. An opportunity to actually take some action instead of just venting. Inform you’re friends of this. Conservatives are so outnumbered in Congress that this type of activity may be what we need. Complaining about pork and waste is useless. We need to stop the money flow. We need a tax revolt and this may be a good start. This should be the Tea Party’s first goal. If there are enough texts to that number, it will get attention and publicity and then more texts, etc. Consider it virtual tea dumping.
