Desperate times call for desperate measures.

This is a call to the independent voters and people of America. If you are like me and are fed up with the way the country is going we need to do something. I have an Idea and I need some one to pull it together. We need to create a lobby of the American People. I think that if banks and what not have lobbiest then so should the American people. Lets pick the very few people in congress who are actually are doing good  then lets get behind  for them and start hounding the others to what is right for us. We the People. I want to know what you think because I am buying more gold and have planted a garden and am reaping the benefits. Fool on.

there are taxpayers associations that do just that.

I don't agree with all of their stances, as they sometimes take up very conservative causes (like anti-abortion propositions), but for the most part, they fight for lowering taxes, they fight against bond proposals, and for a truly smaller government.  I almost always vote with them.

btw i'm betting the same types of people who are involved with the howard jarvis taxpayers association are also the types that buy stores of gold and silver.

and p.s. - silver and copper are better investments than gold at the present moment, IMO.

I think it would be easier and more effective to start a PAC.  After all, our congresspeople are the best that money can buy, and they are always looking to be bought.  If you set up a PAC and started taking donations, you could contribute to the campaigns of those you think worthy, and contribute to the campaigns of the competitors of those you feel most unworthy.  Also, with your donators list, you have a built-in mailing list to send out info regarding congressional or executive malfeasance, misfeasance or general fiduciary irresponsibility.  A letter writing campaign from that group, with the promise/threat of funding for their opponents if the congresspeople/president don't listen would probably bring a very strong voice and a worry to any congressperson more than a simple lobbyist would do that doesn't have the demonstrated financial and political muscle of a PAC.  If you got a million people, each contributing $5, you would have $5 million to spend, minus expenses, (server space for letter campaigns, contributor roles, accountants fees, etc.), plus potentially a million people to write to the congresspeople and hold their feet to the fire.  That many people and that much money could make a difference in some close races, which could give you added influence.

Just a suggestion.
