Free Market Florida has partnered with DC-Based Americans for Limited Government to launch Free Market America on Earth Day
(Washington, DC – April 20, 2012) Free Market Florida today announced that it has partnered with the DC-based advocacy group Americans for Limited Government to launch Free Market America—a new national voice dedicated to defending economic freedom against the threat of environmental extremism. The launch includes a stark new video titled, "If I wanted America to fail...", and is based on the classic 1964 essay by Paul Harvey entitled If I were the devil.
Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson explained the importance of the national launch, saying, "Free Market America will take a no-holds-barred approach to confronting the economic train wreck that the environmental movement is creating."
Free Market America introduced itself to the American public with a national TV buy this weekend—over Earth Day—promoting the full-length launch video on its website.
"We're excited about joining the national debate," said Ryan Houck, executive director of Free Market America. "The environmental agenda has been infected by extremism—it's become an economic suicide pact. And we're here to challenge it."
Free Market America began as Free Market Florida. In 2010, the group led an unprecedented statewide coalition that soundly defeated a Sierra Club-backed constitutional amendment known as "Hometown Democracy." After an historic victory, the group went on to tangle with EarthJustice and the EPA over a battery of new federal regulations labeled the "Water Tax."
"Free Market America is a battle-tested, proven winner in the never-ending fight against the environmental lobby, which hides behind a veneer of green sympathy," Bill Wilson concluded, "we will be exposing the real damage that is being done to working men and women across America by those who worship at the green altar."
The FreeMarketAmerica.org website will go live on April 22, and the group can be followed on twitter @FreeMarket_US.
