Auburn, AL (May 5, 2015) Three months after launching Take Back Our Republic (Take Back), a non-partisan 501(c)3 organization (see details on www.takeback.org), I am happy to announce the formation of Take Back Our Republic Action Fund (Action Fund).
Some strong conservatives with deep experience in politics, campaigns, and government believed in the educational effort of Take Back, but sought to advocate policies and implement specific solutions activities which go beyond the scope of the efforts of Take Back.
The Action Fund will organize those volunteers who want to engage in those activities. It is an organization not organized for profit but operated exclusively for the promotion of related issues under Section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code.
We will work to defend and advance campaign finance reform that empowers voters and encourages higher voter turnout from a conservative, market-based political philosophy. As in any market, we believe that greater participation leads to better results, to innovation, and to a system that works better for everyone.

No group writes more hysterical comments than supporters of abolishing the electoral college (see our piece in the Hill with 6,225 shares from April and the piece that brought more than 1000 comments in the first couple of hours.) I know critics often post stream of conscience comments without researching, but many could have saved themselves from their embarrassing argument which I paraphrase as: Those who support the electoral college are siding with the 18th century small slave holding states that forced the Electoral College on the large non-slave states. Correcting their mistake before posting would have only required two quick google searches: First, click on 270 to Win and go to the first election where each state's electors were counted ( right image ), then click on the image on Wiki's history of slavery ( left image ). 1. If those who side with 18th century small states AGAINST large states are racists, then ... Alice in Wonderland. Comm
Take Back Action Fund or TBAF (also recognized by the IRS as Take Back Our Republic Action Fund) launched on May 5, 2015, three months after its sister organization Take Back Our Republic (Take Back). Some strong conservatives with deep experience in politics, campaigns, and government believed in the educational effort of Take Back, but sought to advocate policies and implement specific solutions activities which go beyond the scope of the efforts of Take Back. TBAF is a conservative, non-partisan 501(c)(4) organization, while Take Back is a 501(c)(3). (See details on www.takeback.org ) TBAF fills the void of center-right groups working to determine the “rules of the game.” For too long, some groups on the Left monopolized these terms - rules for redistricting, voter registration, ranked choice voting, voter ID - for partisan gain. TBAF supports reforming gerrymandering to allow the citizens’ true voices to be heard through compact districts based on communities
