What the DC Downsizer movement needs most
By Jim Babka
Today's Downsizer-Dispatch... On today's Downsize DC Conference Call, a call-in radio show sponsored by DownsizeDC.org, Gun Owners of America, and the Marijuana Policy Project, I'm going to pick up where I left off last week. Or should I say, I'm going to skip ahead? My topic last week had to do with the failure of partisanship. But it's a topic I'm really uncomfortable discussing for both personal and professional reasons. As I explain in the blog post about last week's show, even though I had more to say, I'm ready to move on. Each day I become more convinced we can Downsize DC! On Sunday's program, I'll let you into my mind. I think the visit to my thought process will give you hope, even excitement. I was amazed by the response to last week's show. I've been hosting my own radio show for more than a year now. Six callers, which we had last Sunday, is a record! On top of that, more than 20 people sent emails about the show's topic. That's what controversy will do for you. But now I want to offer hope. Please understand, DownsizeDC.org was conceived during a time when I was thrashing through the very questions I raised last weekend. We've continually refined the concept behind DownsizeDC.org, and now, as we begin our third year, and I see the progress we've made, I've really become convinced we're on to something. Please take it as a sign of my excitement, and not as arrogance, when I tell you that I think DownsizeDC.org is what the movement for smaller government needs most. But what do I mean by that? What are the strategic concepts that undergird Downsize DC? I'm going to discuss as many of these ideas as I can in the time allotted (but I'll still only scratch the surface). I hope you'll be inspired by what you hear today, if you listen. I have a vision of hope to share. And couldn't we all use some hope? Here are the broadcast details...
