CCG September Meeting

CITIZENS FOR CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT

Thursday, September 11th, 7:00  pm

Liberty Training Center  4000 AM Drive, (upper floor CFC Logistics bldg) Quakertown, Pa. 

Friends & Patriots,
We hope you have all had a restful summer. We took an August break but look forward to seeing you for an insightful meeting. The meeting will start with a short segment of the Constitutional Literacy series produced by Michael Farris. It’s an excellent series and quite inspiring as we are reminded of the struggle that culminated in the final drafting of our Constitution in Philadelphia on September 17, 1787.We welcome back Dr. Jim Arcieri as our speaker for the evening. Jim was one of our speakers at our July meeting. As a pastor at the Community  Bible Fellowship Church in Red Hill, Pa.  and a board member on the Pennsylvania Pastor’s Network, Jim spoke of the need to activate churches as to their role in our Constitutional Republic and hinted at the deeper, underlying causes of the problems we now face as a nation. He is also an educator and author, specializing in American history and philosophy. He will present the topic: ” America’s Amnesia: recovering our memory of past foundations for a preferred future.” Dr Arcieri will examine why 100 years of conservative efforts have failed to make a significant and sustainable cultural change, while offering a plan for restoring liberty in our post-Constitutional climate.

Find out what we can to do in order to be more effective in the fight to save our great country. Invite friends, family and church members for an inspirational evening. Join us to make a difference! Let our resolve be renewed as we are reminded of all that has led us to this day and what tomorrow may hold!

INVITED:  State Rep. Paul Clymer (co-sponsor) & State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe (author of proposed alternative bill)
Read State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe’s Co-sponsor Memorandum for his proposed alternative Property Tax Elimination bill below.
Posted: February 28, 2014 09:44 AM
To: All House Members
From: Representative Daryl Metcalfe
Subject: Proposed Legislation: Property Tax Elimination

In the near future, it is my intention to re-introduce property tax elimination legislation for the 2013-2014 legislative session.

This legislation would provide for the following:

  • Property taxation would be eliminated over six years, with a 33 percent reduction in school property taxes in the first year alone.
  • In years one through three, Pennsylvania’s personal income tax would be increased from 3.1 percent to 4.6 percent while the state sales tax would be increased from 6 percent to 9 percent.   In years four through six, municipalities would increase the earned income tax and/or personal income tax.
  • Voter approval of local tax increases would be required unless the increases are for health or safety reasons.
  • General Fund surpluses, minus the amount that must be deposited in the Budget Stabilization Reserve Fund, would be used to reduce the personal income tax rate.

The result of this legislation would be a revenue neutral change – neither state nor local government would collect more or less tax money than what was previously required to fund government services, particularly public education.

FYI: Property Tax Independence Rally on April 30 in Harrisburg at 11:30AM.

“Government Unions and Fairness to Taxpayers”
with
Katrina Anderson of Commonwealth Foundation
Tuesday, March 11, 6:30-8:30pm
Quakertown Library, 401 W. Mill St., Quakertown
Is it fair to taxpayers to use their money to take money from government employees and give it to private organizations (unions) to promote their one-sided political agenda?
Is it fair to government employees to take money off the top of their paychecks without their consent, without giving them the opportunity to choose whether or not to use their money to fund the unions which support a political agenda which does not represent many of those employees?
JOIN US TO LEARN WHAT IS BEING DONE IN HARRISBURG TO CORRECT THIS INJUSTICE AND WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT!

GOOD NEWS! YOUR VOICE STOPPED Obama’s assault on freedom of speech on the airwaves!!   KEEP UP THE GOOD FIGHT!

ACLJ
Take Action  |  Contribute

You won.

You defeated the Obama Administration’s effort to monitor America’s newsrooms.

On Wednesday we launched a public campaign against the Obama Administration’s “study” of American newsrooms, a “study” that would send government monitors into Christian and conservative stations.

Can you imagine? Government monitors asking Christian broadcasters if they’re giving you the news the Obama Administration says you “need” to hear?

It was intolerable, and within two days of launching our campaign, tens of thousands signed our petition, Members of Congress confronted the FCC, and the Obama Administration’s threats to the free press were national news.

Yesterday afternoon the Administration surrendered, ending the study and promising not to monitor station owners, managers, and reporters. It was a complete victory.

Share the news.

Read and Share the ACLJ Victory Over Obama Administration Overreach.

But that was not our only victory this week. All the way across the globe, we successfully defended persecuted Christians in Pakistan. The European Centre for Law and Justice won a victory for two Pakistani Christians falsely accused of murder charges. Read their story.

Pakistani Christians win a victory in the face of persecution.

We’re thankful for these victories, one for liberty at home and the other for liberty and life abroad. We cannot do this work without your support. Please consider a tax-deductible gift today.

Support our work: Defend Life and Liberty.

PROPERTY TAX ELIMINATION BILL WORKS!! ?No more government threat to our right to property through unaffordable property taxation!

** Did you know that almost 10% of Bucks County homes are right now either in foreclosure, under income tax liens, or up for Sheriff’s sale?

** Did you know that Bucks County with an average annual property tax of $4090 is the second highest in the state?

** IF CITIZENS CAN LOSE THE PROPERTY FOR WHICH THEY WORKED AND SACRIFICED TO GOVERNMENT TAXES, ARE WE SECURE IN OUR RIGHT TO OWN PROPERTY??
