WeDemand to speak at CPAC

The "We Demand" coalition, which campaigned successfully against the Hamilton County jail tax last year, will speak Friday at the annual Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) convention in Washington, D.C. The annual convention is a big deal for conservatives. It attracts thousands of people and this year featuring as speakers, George W. Bush, John McCain, Mike Huckabee and others.

Coalition leader Dan Regenold and others will speak about the Power and Principle: Conservative Victories that have Taken Place Across the Nation and is geared toward those seeking to promote change in their local government.

We Demand a Vote was the coalition that led the petition drive to get the sales tax increase on the ballot last year. It was ultimately trounced by voters.

Said Regenold: “It is fundamental that citizens have the right to petition their Government when Government does not listen. Our goal at CPAC is to provide a resource for people across the Country who need help protecting their personal liberties from an ever over-reaching Government.”

CPAC is also where Ann "Fascist Party Doll" (hat tip to Richard Belzer) Coulter called John Edwards a "fag."

You and Your Handlers neglected to mention that, Baby Jessica.

Where are these selfrightous hacks when the county GOP annointed the next commissioner and clerk of courts without a public vote? One would think representation by vote would more important than a singular tax increase...which we elect officials to make that decision anyway.

Dan Regenold is a hero. I wish he would run for office!! There should be more people like him standing up for their rights. Thanks Dan, for all you are doing for the people of Hamilton County.
