Conservatives, Libertarians, Republicans:

I know that those of us who believe in less government disagree about other various issues. However, I think that we can all agree that a smaller, less intrusive federal government is a fabulous thing. With this common ground, I believe now is the time for all of these factions to unite in opposition to the blatant Socialism and consolidation of power that is emerging. Once we have successfully worked together to reign in the government and all the people who are trying to run every aspect of our lives, we can then turn our attention to those issues on which we disagree.

If the federal government is smaller, this also means those other issues could be resolved at state and local levels, where they should be resolved anyway. So my call is to anyone and everyone who, at their core, loves liberty and freedom. Put aside the minor differences and let's work together to redirect this truly awesome nation towards its roots of personal liberty.

Just as a reminder-

Liberty:
1) a. The condition of being free from restriction or control.
b. The right and power to act, believe, or express oneself in a manner of one's own choosing.
c. The condition of being physically and legally free from confinement, servitude, or forced
labor. See Synonyms at freedom.
2) Freedom from unjust or undue governmental control.
3) A right or immunity to engage in certain actions without control or interference: the liberties protected by the Bill of Rights.

  1. just one little nitpicking thing but it changes the intent of what you say....reign in the government. Maybe it was a play on words, reign implying non-democratic rule. The correct phrasing would be 'rein in the government' as in to rein in a running horse, to stop it.
