Still Proud to be One of the "Crazy Ones"

Having worked in printing, publishing and graphic design for 35+ years, I'm a big fan of Apple Computer. Way back in 1984, I was one of those morons who spent $2500 to buy a little Apple Macintosh computer when they first hit the market. My friends and family told me I was nuts. As a graphic artist, the minute I saw the Mac and what I could potentially do with it, I fell in love. MacPaint and MacDraw, about the only Macintosh software available at the time, had visions of new creative…

Call for candidates to replace Mark Kirk!

The last newsletter encouraged us to be looking for and encouraging candidates to run for Illinois' US Senate seat or to oppose Mark Kirk.

Paul Schmipf is a candidate that should be encouraged and considered for this.  I was very impressed with him as he presented at WSPs as he opposed Madigan for Attorney General.  

I encourage all of us to be looking for quality candidates and encouraging them.  In addition to encouraging them personally, recommend them to Tim…

West Suburban Patriots is an independent group of concerned citizens.  We are active in Dupage County and beyond. We spontaneously began in response to the United States government accelerating it's 100-year incremental descent into tyranny and losing sight of the fact that it serves at the will of "we the people". The principles of this movement are Fiscal Responsibility (reduce spending & lower taxes), Constitutionally Limited Government, and Free Markets.

West Suburban Patriot's mission is to attract, educate, organize, and mobilize our fellow citizens to secure public policy consistent with our three core values of Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government and Free Markets.  

West Suburban Patriots vision is to restore the United States of America to the constitutional republic as conceived and created by our Founding Fathers in the US Constitution. 

Fiscal Responsibility by government honors and respects the freedom of the individual to spend the money that is the fruit of their own labor.  Runaway deficit spending as we now see in Washington D.C. compels us to take action as the increasing national debt is a grave threat to our national sovereignty and the personal and economic liberty of future generations.  Illinois’ unfunded liabilities are equally reckless.

Constitutionally Limited Government: We regard the Constitution of the United States to be the supreme law of the land. We believe that it is possible to know the original intent of the government our founders set forth, and stand in support of that intent. Like the founders, we support states' rights for those powers not expressly stated in the Constitution. As the government is of the people, by the people and for the people, we support the personal liberty of the individual, within the rule of law.

Free Markets: A free market is the economic consequence of personal liberty. The founders believed that personal and economic freedom were indivisible. Our current government's interference distorts the free market and inhibits the pursuit of individual and economic liberty. Therefore, we support a return to the free market principles on which this nation was founded and oppose government intervention into the operations of private business.
