Its preferred type of social change comes in the form of government-run healthcare, increased unionization and increased government spending as a cure to society's ills. In other words, ACORN is a leader in America's slouch towards socialism.

Ending Spending, Inc. is dedicated to educating and engaging American taxpayers about wasteful and excessive government spending. In this troubled economy, now is the time to regain control of federal government spending, balance the budget, pay down the national debt, and restore fiscal responsibility in Washington, D.C. We believe our elected representatives must end the practice of mortgaging the economic futures of our children and grandchildren to pay for present-day spending. Information is the best tool we have to combat the debt crisis and hold politicians accountable for the policies that are bankrupting America and threatening the financial health of our families.

The Nervethenerve.orgflag
The Nerve is a project of the South Carolina Policy Council. SCPC is non-profit, non-partisan and non-government. That means we arenít political. We arenít looking to make a buck. We donít work for special interests and we do not take public money. We promote ideas like limited government, free enterprise and individual liberty. We created The Nerve because there isnít enough independent reporting on government and the politicians who run it. So we hired veteran South Carolina investigative reporters to cover the big stuff in Columbia. Theyíre very, very good. What makes The Nerve even better is the volunteers from all over the state who are our citizen reporters. Theyíll help us monitor and report on government from the Statehouse and their hometowns.

Establish an eCongress to relocate US Representatives to our Local Districts, US Senators to our State Capitals, and State Reps & State Senators to our City Halls/Courthouses to securely telecommute for no less than 75% of their terms while we keep an eye on them. This idea was presented to US Congress on September 14th, 2001 as a highly recommended national security upgrade but was turned down using the excuse that Congress members could not be relied on to show up for votes and committee meetings if allowed to telecommute. The US Constitution allows for this and several candidates have agreed to include this in their platform. This concept has also been mentioned on Fox News, Glenn Beck's radio Show, American Spectator's online edition, along with other publications. More info at http://bringhomethepoliticians.com

We recognize that the bigger the government, the more opportunities for corruption; and the more intervention in the economy, the more reason for special interests to seek influence. We believe that the best way to promote ethics is to reduce the size of government.
