AFP: Grassroots Is Winning – But We Need Your Investment Now to Grow in 2010!!

AFP Oregon

We won a powerful victory in Estacada on November 3 and I want to personally thank you for making it possible.  With your help, we can duplicate this victory all across our State.


You see, this victory means that no longer will the City be able to confiscate the private property (money) of Estacada taxpayers by raising taxes or fees without a vote of those same taxpayers.


Our AFP OR Estacada members gathered the necessary signatures after our lawyer Eric Winters drafted the measure for them and then our AFP OR leadership sprung into action to raise a small amount of money to support the campaign to pass Measure 3-346, which won 56% yes to 44% no. Our members in Estacada now feel empowered – they really can fight City Hall successfully and they are ready to try another government limiting initiative.


Nothing like success to keep the citizens pumped up and engaged in the political process!


Politicians, lobbyists, consultants, the media and liberal, big government advocates are scratching their heads wondering why AFP OR keeps passing these local initiatives that limit government authority and return power to the people.


The answer is simple: They are clueless and in denial that there is a powerful revolution sweeping Oregon and America that demands government be limited as our Founders clearly set forth in the Constitution.

The leftist ideas enacted here in Oregon and being debated in Washington DC have created an enormous backlash as evidenced by the rise of the powerful Tea Party movement and the tripling in size of Americans for Prosperity here in Oregon and nationwide. AFP OR is providing the foundation of this grassroots revolution to continue for years to come with our model of focusing on local issues, like in Estacada. As our local AFP OR activists win victories for their principles and values, they stay engaged and their passion will be there for us when we need them for state or federal issues.


Nothing personifies the momentum of our movement better than the anti Al Gore rally AFP sponsored in Portland last month as part of AFP’s “Hot Air Tour.”  Over 300 of our members came out on a cold, damp evening to rally against the economy-destroying ideas Al Gore was pushing across the street at Keller Auditorium with his “Cap and Trade” agenda. Rallies such as ours are having an impact as polling shows that Americans are turning against these radical ideas and are a source of great frustration to the liberal media like the Oregonian’s editorial board which lamented that “American public opinion, meanwhile, is sliding in the wrong direction.”


All of this passion for returning government to its Constitutional limits needs a base of support to keep it moving in the right direction, which is exactly what your support of AFP OR can provide and we thank you once again for making this possible.


Your financial contribution right now is critically important for AFP OR to continue our mission in supporting local efforts to take back power from out of control government. Just in the last couple of weeks I have been contacted by citizens from Coburg, Dallas, Lake Oswego and Tigard to help them fight local battles against new taxes and to protect private property rights, because they know we get results. In fact, we have not lost one of these local initiatives yet.


However, I cannot continue to provide the legal advice, campaign expertise and other basic support to win these local citizen initiative battles unless you are willing to make a generous financial contribution to support our efforts.


Please consider making a year end contribution to Americans for Prosperity Oregon to help us stand with local Oregonians against the “soft tyranny” of well-meaning local politicians who have forgotten the meaning of the Constitution’s limited government principles.


Your gift of $30, $20 or even $15 – or your pledge of an automatic monthly or quarterly contribution – will ensure that AFP OR can continue to partner with local Oregonians to fight for their freedoms and rights under the Constitution.


Yours In Freedom,


Jeff Kropf, State Director

AFP – Oregon


P.S. – AFP membership is free, but the work we do with our grassroots activists and partners is expensive.  Your gift of $30, $20 or even $15 today will help us grow the grassroots and win many, many more local battles.
