The other day, I was perusing comments on an article a reporter over at the Washington Times Communities section wrote in which she extensively quoted me.
A comment by “Charles” gave me quite a chuckle when he associated the nullification movement with the Koch Brothers.
Of course, progressives love to throw Koch out as a smear tactic. In their minds, this invalidates anything somebody with an opposing point of view says, freeing them from actually having to engage in a real debate. They play the Koch card in much the same way they point fingers, jump up and down and yell, “racist!” Debate over. Who cares what a racist thinks, right? And who cares what somebody flush with Koch cash might have to say.
But oh, how I wish the accusation of Koch cash was true! If only the Tenth Amendment Center bank account was full of federal reserve notes generously donated. If it where, maybe I wouldn’t have to get up at 4 a.m. and work eight hours at a full-time job before tackling my ever growing TAC to-do list!
I’m not complaining, mind you. I do what I do because I believe passionately in the cause. But the reality is that the TAC doesn’t have a roster of big fat-cat donors. We don’t have a nice building in downtown D.C. We don’t have a paid staff, padded expense accounts or a multimillion dollar budget.
But I love what we do have. Brilliant, hard-working, dedicated volunteers who bust their butt for constitutionally restrained government and the cause of liberty. And it’s pretty amazing what this rag-tag team working on a shoe-string budget accomplishes.
In fact, the Tenth Amendment Center depends on people just like you to fund our work. Here’s the cool thing though. We don’t just ask for a handout. (Don’t get me wrong; we’ll take it if your offering!) No, we like to give you something in return for your hard-earned cash. So, we’ve created nice membership packages with awesome benefits. We also offer a wide range of books, DVDs and other cool stuff that will serve to educate, entertain and help you spread the Tenth Amendment Center message. The sale of these products funds our work – and gives you a little something in return.
Pretty cool deal, eh?
Head over to the Tenth Amendment Center Store at store.tenthamendmentcenter.com and check out what we have to offer. And if you believe in our work, consider becoming a member.
We appreciate your support!
