Good Morning, Senator Murkowski

Bob “Thank you for being here.

My name is Bob McNeil.  I am a professional auditor from Texas, a former U.S. Marine, and the Founder of the American Citizen Party.”

That’s how it began at 9:30am on Friday, August 20th, 2010 during a presentation in Anchorage by Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska).

She was there to give an overview of the last session of Congress, as well as a glimpse into the future.  The presentation lasted about 20 minutes with a question and answer period following.

I was the first to raise my hand.  I rose to my feet and began my introduction with the words above, then continued:

“I hold in my hand a 12-page bill I wrote that restores the freedoms that Congress has taken from every American over the last 100 years.

It is called the Economic Freedom Act.

This bill returns $2 trillion to the American people to spend, save, invest or give to charity, as they choose.  It also installs a 21st century tax collection system called “Vote With Your Dollars” that allows each citizen to tell Congress where they want their tax dollars spent, eliminates the IRS, and places controls on members of Congress to prevent them from adding earmarks and amendments to non-related legislation.

I mailed this document to your Washington office in February of this year, but I will be happy to place it in your hands today.  (I handed her a copy of the Economic Freedom Act.)

This is my 2-part question to you:

“What is YOUR plan to restore freedom to all American citizens?”

And, if you don’t have one,

“Why should the citizens of Alaska vote to send you back to Washington for another 6 years?”

You could have heard a pin drop.

We all awaited her answer.

She began by saying that, as a Senator, she receives a LOT of mail and, while she may have received the Economic Freedom Act, she probably had not gotten around to reading it.  (No excuse now.)

Then, for the next 15 minutes or so, she went on about how important seniority was in the Senate.  That’s how you get put on special committees and get things done, she said.

After awhile, my mind drifted off as she continued to tell everyone how much good she had done for Alaskans in her last eight years in office.

The Alaska primary elections were held on Tuesday, August 24th and, as of this writing, she was trailing her Republican opponent.

It will be interesting to see what the final outcome will be.

It is time to hold incumbent politicians accountable for their actions and press them on their plans to restore our freedoms.

What will you do between now and November?
