Regulate, Audit or Defund Government Funded Non-Profits

Michelle Malkin’s article entitled “Another Bogus ACORN Lawsuit” states in part that ACORN has received more than $53 million since 1994.

I agree with her that ACORN has, to say the least, misappropriated federal funds.

It is the unregulated part of the U.S. Government’s funding for all non-profit organizations that I question.

Misuse and possible unlawful use of public funds by ACORN has heightened my interest with this issue. Why are any nonprofits getting even one dollar from the taxpayers? It would seem that once funded the revenue stream never stops. Add another qualified nonprofit non-audited organization and then another and yet another and pretty soon you’re talking about big money, provided via the taxpayer. Audit and regulate any wasteful spending on the part of these trough feeding entities or cut them off completely. Are these organization funded with the best interests of all citizens in mind or are they merely a mechanism with which to fund “friends of …” fill in the blank or a support base to help a certain political party get re-elected?

Enough already with the pet projects and social engineering. It’s time we elect CPAs, Constitutional attorneys and salt-of-the-earth citizens to reduce this unsustainable government spending. Remove the millionaire politicians from office as they are obviously removed from the economic realities of our countries fiscal situation.

When you take your child into any store it’s perfectly clear to you that you cannot buy your child everything they demand you buy, no matter how much they kick and scream. Why don’t this congress and this president understand what every parent understands? Time to tell your children in Washington DC that we can’t afford to buy them all of the shinny objects in the store.
