Liberty on Tap since 1984
Earlier this week I wrote in the Washington Times about the introduction of a national Renewable Electricity Mandate bill by New Mexico Democrat Sen. Jeff Bingaman and Kansas Republican Sen.

Talk radio show host Mark Gillar at teapartypowerhour.com sent the following email message about the Reverend C.L. Bryant, which I'm happy to share with my fellow Freedom Pubbers.
