Here is Kay Zwerling: The practice of Congressional earmarks has been a rotten and sneaky action condoned and used by many if not most members of Congress who were voted into office by their constituents who thought or hoped that their candidate was looking after their interests and had pledged to spend our money wisely. If you believe that, I have a bridge in Brooklyn I?d love to sell you. And, by the way, whenever Hillary talks about the importance of experience in being a lawmaker, she means learning the ropes, like about earmarks. I just received a letter from Steve Elliot, President of Grassfire.org Alliance, of which I?m a member, and the title of the letter is ?No More Pork Spending?, and it tells it well, so listen: ?Dear Kay, The Omnibus Spending Bill pushed through Congress last December gutted the Security Fence Act, but left intact were thousands of earmarks that directed hundreds of millions of tax dollars to pet projects and preferred supporters all without public debate or even a vote in Congress.Outrageously, just two months into the new year, lawmakers have already begun soliciting earmark requests for 2008.Kay, earmarks have become a symbol of the culture of the widespread corruption on Capitol Hill, and as a valued Grassfire team member, I?m asking you to join with me right now by signing our petition calling for an end to earmarks. 2007 was a banner year for pork. Citizens Against Government Waste reported the taxpayers have funded 2,658 so-called pork projects for a whopping $13 Billion (with a B). Listen to some of the following: 1. $1 million for Hillary Clinton’s hippie museum in New York honoring the events of Woodstock. Who cares? $6 million to research new uses for wood.$1.3 million to Raleigh, North Carolina, to build a year-round climate-controlled park carousel.In each instance, Congress did not debate them in the open, and there was never even a public vote. Is it any wonder why Americans do not trust our elected leaders?We have only 30 days to make an impact.Kay, the corrupting influence of earmarks have boiled over, and I?m relying on members of our team to help me rally 100,000 citizens who are standing with me and demanding an end to earmarks.Here is what we are calling for: 1. An immediate one-year moratorium on earmarks.2. Congress to pass a permanent legislative or Constitutional solution that bans earmarks, and 3. Presidential and Congressional candidates to pledge to support the one-year moratorium as well as the permanent ban.It would be difficult to find a more self-serving and corruptive practice than earmarks. That’s why I am asking all members of our team to join with me right now to help bring earmarks to an end. That is the end of the letter. And so listeners, if you would like to know more about this group, and perhaps join in, go to Grassfire.org Alliance (G in Grassfire is capital, and A in Alliance is also capital), and thank you so much for listening to me.For KSCO and KOMY, this is Kay Zwerling.

Here is Kay Zwerling: Several weeks ago, KSCO devoted the two-hour Saturday Special to discuss Ron Paul. I called his honest appraisal a breath of fresh air, but alas the powers that be in our Country refuse to take his message seriously. But, I suspect that Ron Paul opened a door which will not close ? it may take four years or longer, but finally he will be taken seriously as a contender for the Presidency. In one place, I must part company with Ron Paul. Those who created our Constitution then may have been justified to think of our nation being isolationists. It’s no longer that simple in this age of nuclear-ism and world Islamic terrorists determined to destroy all who do not embrace the Muslim religion, some of which is many evil beliefs. The following compelling arguments, from the Internet, says it better than I could: Well now, Republicans say ?We have a nominee?. That may very well be, but there was only one clear winner in the confusing GOP nominating contest, and it was not John McCain. The winner was Ron Paul. And, the effects of his win will be felt for years to come. Ron Paul made a classic political mistake. He told the truth. In debate after debate, he pointed at his party, his President, his fellow contenders for the GOP nomination, shouting aloud like the little boy in the proverbial story ?They have no clothes?, and lo and behold we looked and they didn?t. They were all naked.He showed that the conservative movement has lost its way, its moral authority, and its logic. He showed us that we have become a Red team vs. a Blue team. But, that since we have decided that this is a political war and all normal rules are suspended, conservatives can do liberal things to win it. Conservatives can run up big deficits if it helps their side win. They can dole out needless pork known as earmarks if it elects another conservative to Congress. It can to war if it makes their President look like a leader and wins him another term. But, in the process Ron Paul showed us that we have lost our way. We are no longer conservatives. We are fighting for power, not for principles. We have become corrupted by the process, and the only way back is to retrace our steps and find all the things we discarded along the way. Barry Goldwater lit a similar fire with his ?Conscience of a Conservative?. Its truth and arguments were so obvious and so honest that one laughed aloud while reading it. But, Goldwater himself, was doomed to political defeat. And, Ron Paul has no chance to win this election either. One can see that when he first opened his mouth. And yet the words and arguments of Ron Paul are still resonating. They still hang over the election. They are haunting and troubling. They are producing blogs, papers, and books ? and like Goldwater’s revolution, they will one day be very likely to produce their own Ronald Reagan. And, when those heady days happen, a small but hardy band of pioneers, who first had the nerve to join him and start shouting from the street ?They aren?t wearing any clothes? will be able to say that they could see what the Country missed. They were there when history was made.John McCain and his poorly chosen words, of staying in Iraq 100 years, have almost guaranteed that he will be the answer to the trivia question, who was the Republican candidate who lost on the ticket but claimed the first woman and black for the Presidency? Another question may very well be, what other candidate ran that year and launched the movement that has dominated national politics for the last generation? ? and that answer will be Ron Paul.
