HUNTLEY AREA TEA PARTY
Congressman Joe Walsh
* * *
Constitution Day, America!
Come and meet with one of the most outspoken and well known TEA Party members of Congress. Congressman Joe Walsh became a lead advocate for the Balanced Budget Amendment, term limits, tax cuts, cutting off pay for Members of Congress if they don't pass a budget, Second Amendment Rights, and the State of Israel. He served on the Small Business Committee, the Committee on Homeland Security, and the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
Joe Walsh has a Master's Degree in Public Policy from the University of Chicago and has dedicated his life to service and limited-government advocacy. Elected to the United States Congress in 2010, Joe refused his Congressional health benefits and pensions, slept in his office, limited himself to no more than three terms in office, and held more town halls than any member of Congress. Congressman Walsh received the highest possible ratings on freedom and limited government from The Club for Growth, Freedom Works, and Heritage Action For America.
Joe is currently host of The Joe Walsh Show on "AM560, The Answer" in Chicago, Monday thru Friday, afternoon drive 5-8pm. He's also the Founder of Walsh Freedom, Illinois' largest grassroots army of freedom fighters, dedicated to helping elect limited government candidates at all levels of government. Be informed, be here.

I’m pleased to say that the Bill of Rights Institute has put together Documents of Freedom, a free digital civics course with material on American history, government, and economics. The course builds on excerpts from over 100 primary sources, including the Federalist and Anti-Federalist papers, presidential speeches, Supreme Court cases, and the Founding documents; and it offers an extensive set of original essays, focusing on principles such as federalism, separation of powers, limited government, checks and balances, republican government, consent of the governed, natural rights, rule of law, and due process, as well as virtues like self-governance, humility, integrity, justice, perseverance, respect, contribution, and responsibility. Of course, the materials can also be used as a free supplement to normal textbooks, and are usable for home-schooling as well as for the classroom.
The Institute would love to have teachers independently evaluate the site, and offer suggestions on how it can be improved; because it’s online, it can always be enhanced and corrected as necessary. If you’re interested in participating, please e-mail Kirk Higgins at email@example.com.
Disclosure: I was happy to be a consultant on the course, for which I received an honorarium; an introductory essay of mine will be included in the materials, though it isn’t up yet.
The Luncheon will be held the first Wednesday of the month at the Golden Corral on Randall Rd. in Algonquin at 1:00 PM. The General Meeting will be held the third Wednesday of the month at 6:30 PM at The Huntley Park District Bldg. unless otherwise noted.
If we have bad weather the day of the scheduled meeting, please check your email for a cancellation notice before leaving the house. Thank you.
