¶ Americans for Prosperity's Siren Song
To offer a feel for this organization I’ve taken the liberty of copying from Durango’s Americans for Prosperity Facebook page and sharing the text along with a few comments.
AFP’s siren song:
AFP’s siren song:
Our Colorado Chapter
One of 36 state chapters nationwide, Americans for Prosperity–Colorado has over 85,000 activists and an ever-expanding base of local donors.
The grassroots volunteers of AFP Colorado advocate for public policies that champion the principles of limited government as well as regulatory and fiscal restraint. Part of our mission includes holding elected officials accountable for promises and votes throughout the legislative session.
“Americans for Prosperity exists to recruit, educate, and mobilize citizens in support of the policies and goals of a free society (Implying what, we are shackled?, and why are AFP’s meeting so secretive?) at the local, state, and federal level, helping every American live their dream – especially the least fortunate.
(Then why does AFP oppose a woman’s right to self-determination and self-defense?
Why does AFP oppose universal health care efforts?
Why is AFP trying to destroy our public school systems?
Why does AFP have contempt for effort to protect the environment that supplies our life support system?
Why does AFP lie about the dangers of fossil fuels burning and global warming’s increasing harm to the less fortunate?
Why does AFP act as though paying your fair share in taxes is equivalent to rape?
Why does AFP hate our government that created this amazing society in America? )

You have been invited to join the Colorado chapter of the Americans for Prosperity Foundation for an exciting training event developed by the Grassroots Leadership Academy.

(In other words, better not think about recording anything and sneaking it out. I wonder why? Mighty paranoid thinking going on here.
Or perhaps it's more a reflection of a Stealth Takeover Operation in full swing. We won’t know what hits us until it’s too late to do anything about it. Been working pretty good so far, look who we’ve handed our White House and government to. )
