The American conservative movement is mobilizing against the government spending splurge that's taking place in the United States.
The leaders of 18 of pro-free market organizations have signed an open letter addressed to the leaders of the American Senate.
Part of the letter reads: "the astronomical growth of government spending, coupled with further monetary easing and protectionism, will discourage investment, savings, and capital creation, because in the longer term it means higher taxes, higher interest rates, and inflation. It will destroy jobs in the private sector, thus increasing individual dependency on government."
We need a similar campaign here in Canada.
