the club for growth

The Club For Growth is an advocacy group representing the interests of fiscal conservatives. From their website:

Club for Growth is a national network of thousands of Americans, from all walks of life, who believe that prosperity and opportunity come through economic freedom. We work to promote public policies that promote economic growth primarily through legislative involvement, issue advocacy, research, training and educational activity.
The primary tactic of the separate Club for Growth PAC is to provide financial support from Club members to viable pro-growth candidates to Congress, particularly in Republican primaries.
Club for Growth Policy Goals:
1. Making the Bush tax cuts permanent
2. Death tax repeal
3. Cutting and limiting government spending
4. Social Security reform with personal retirement accounts
5. Expanding free trade
6. Legal reform to end abusive lawsuits
7. Replacing the current tax code
8. School choice
9. Regulatory reform and deregulation

All of the above, plus more, can be found at

The Club For Growth has put together position papers on the economic records of three of the GOP presidential candidates: John McCain, Mike Huckabee, and Sam Brownback. It makes for interesting reading. I'll provide the links and you can read for yourself. Enjoy.
