Free Enterprise Nation Celebrates First Birthday With Record Membership, Bestseller Book

August 26, 2010 by  

Free Enterprise Nation celebrates first birthday with record membership, bestseller book The Free Enterprise Nation (FEN) has said wasteful public spending and ballooning budget deficits have contributed to a substantial growth in its membership, which it says is indicative of a tide of outrage sweeping the nation.

FEN was launched just last year as a non-partisan organization representing employees and businesses in the private sector, and it works to spread awareness on the disparities in pay, benefits and pensions between the public and private sectors.

Not only has its own membership reached thousands of corporate and individual members in this short period of time, but the organization points to millions more people joining Tea Party movements and other grassroots initiatives that oppose excessive and unsustainable spending, including lavish government salaries.

To mark its first anniversary, FEN has announced that a book by its founder and CEO James MacDougald, entitled Unsustainable: How Big Government, Taxes and Debt are Wrecking America, has reached a bestseller status, climbing to number 11 on Amazon’s Hot New Releases.

"Regardless of political affiliation, everyone must be aware of the cresting economic crisis looming over our nation," said MacDougald. "We can and must preserve American businesses and the people they employ. We have to rein in spending and unleash free enterprise."ADNFCR-1961-ID-19929730-ADNFCR

    This corrupt administration and America’s long-term, career criminal politicians in both major parties have no idea as to the depth or breadth of outrage festering across America. People who let themslves think they can take reguge in the idea that their ‘party’ is above reproach, or that their ‘leader’ is God’s gift to politics have traded reason for a utopian fantasy.
    As Mark Twain said, “politics and diapers have much in common. They need to be changed on a regular basis and for the same reason.” It is our patriotic duty to forever dismantle the incestuous character of career politicians and their “divine right” to go to Washington and stay there.
    Government can’t be trusted. Politicians can’t be trusted. Party followers can’t be trusted. Good intentions can’t be trusted. Either we preserve, protect and defend the Constitution, or we surrender and let freedom become a fading memory.
    Open your eyes and ears, Washington. Americans will not let politicians do to America what foreign invaders have long dreamed about.

    Free Enterprise went out the window when USA, startered thinking America needed the college educated self centered ass, instead of a hands on business person. I will take any hard working, every day run of the mill worker, over some multi degreed eleit smuck to be President or Congress person. These pee brains we have in office, they cann’t read bills and people, or know when what a bunch of simple minded butt weeds that are in all of the governmment agencies. Or what they pass, that impedes jobs or businesses, or the devolopement of new tecknologies and businesses. The best thing is get rid og 75% of the staffs and 50% of the agencies, and 90% of all social programs, put some pressure on dead government a$$es.
