Find ‘Big Government Gary’ @ CPAC to Win an Apple iPad!

If you’re at CPAC this weekend, be sure to keep an eye out for Big Government Gary. You can’t miss him, he’s a Liberty on the Rocks volunteer wearing a fat suit – a gigantic one.  Gary represents all that is wrong with big government. Essentially, he’s too big to function. But that doesn’t mean he can’t still give out freebies (similar to the way our government does each day). Find Gary @ CPAC to enter our contest to win one of two Apple iPads! You can also enter by texting LIBERTY to 24747 or by signing up online.

Check out the contest rules for more information.

Hope to see you at CPAC – although we know you’ll see us. As big as these fat suits are, you won’t be able to miss Gary!

The Empirical Evidence Against Big Government

While liberty-minded individuals understand the concept of why big government is bad for an economy (usually because they are the ones who study economics), it is still very important to relay the facts and statistics whenever possible – as proof for those who believe big government is good for prosperity.  This six minute video clip by the Center for Freedom and Prosperity compares countries in the western hemisphere in order to determine which have the highest levels of GDP per capita, per capita gross national income and individual consumption per capita (more disposable income).  The highest levels are no doubt in the United States, which has the least amount of government spending compared to the four other countries (for now).

Remember the saying your teachers told you throughout middle school, that knowledge is power?  Well it is!  So check out the video as well as the Center for Freedom and Prosperity’s website, and share these statistics with your friends!
