Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) is now raising campaign cash off her floor speech this past Friday, Greg Sargent reports, in which she boldly called the climate-change bill a government takeover of “every aspect” of people’s lives by a tyrannical government.
“When I spoke on the floor during the debate, I laid the question out in its most bare-boned terms: this is about liberty versus tyranny,” Bachmann writes.
She later adds: “Please help me show that conservatives will not simply stand by while they destroy jobs, delete liberty, and decimate our economy.”
Delete liberty? Remember, patriotic Americans, there’s still time to go to the Dock at the bottom of your screen, and grab that liberty file back out of the Trash!

As I was writing you last Friday, Congress was in the midst of a pivotal debate on the cap-and-trade national energy tax.
Regrettably, the House of Representatives by a slim margin of only 7 votes passed this terrible job-killing, economy-crushing government power grab.
Just 7 votes. If only 4 of the Members that voted for this bill had voted the other way, we could have defeated this senseless legislation.
It goes to show you how absolutely important your early and active involvement is. The margins are that slim.

As I have made clear over and over again: I will always stand with liberty.
God bless and thank you for your support.
