Paul, keep up the good fight. Unfortunately, you have a mammoth undertaking against politicians which for the past several months have massively expanded the power of government, is ripping the fabric of economic freedom and is trying to convince the individual to let the government take responsibility for everything in our lives. I fear you are fighting a losing battle.
