Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) congratulates former Jackson City Councilman Quentin Whitwell for signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, which is a written commitment to the people of Mississippi to “oppose any and all efforts to increase the marginal income tax rates for individuals and/or businesses and oppose any net reduction or elimination of deductions and credits, unless matched dollar for dollar by further reducing tax rates." Whitwell is running in the May 12 special election to fill the seat vacated by the recently deceased Alan Nunnelee in Mississippi’s first congressional district.

Candidates running for office like to say they will not raise taxes, but often turn their backs on the taxpayer once elected. The Pledge requires these candidates to put their rhetoric in writing and provide an additional layer of accountability to the taxpayer.

ATR has offered the Pledge to all candidates for federal office since 1987. Currently, 48 U.S. Senators and 219 members of the U.S. House of Representatives have signed the Pledge. Additionally, fourteen incumbent governors and over 1,000 state legislators have signed the Pledge.

I want to congratulate Whitwell for taking the Taxpayer Protection Pledge. The American people are tired of the tax-and-spend policies coming from Washington and they are looking for solutions that create jobs, cut government spending, and get the economy going again,” said Grover Norquist, president of ATR.

I challenge all candidates for federal office to make the same commitment to taxpayers by signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge today,” Norquist continued.

ATR will continue to follow this race closely and will provide additional updates as more candidates sign the Pledge.

Remembering M. Stanton Evans

M. Stanton Evans, famed journalist and author, died Tuesday, the New York Times reported. He was 80.

Known for a combination of biting wit and carefully reasoned critiques, Evans made a career out of educating the American people on the importance of conservative values and ideas. To call him a trailblazer would be disrespectful. He served as the only voice for conservatives twenty years before Ronald Reagan proudly proclaimed himself to be an American conservative during his 1980 presidential campaign.

Evans sought to establish greater opportunities for young conservatives. He established Young Americans for Freedom as an outlet for university students to garner information and express their opinions at a time when Liberalism was firmly entrenched in the American collegiate system. He outlined his manifesto for Young Americans for Freedom in the Sharon Statement, known today as a unifying message for many American conservatives.  His ideas helped spurn on a rapid growth in conservative thought on college campuses across the United States.

M. Stanton Evans engaged America’s aspiring young journalists by creating the National Journalist Center, a non-profit organization dedicated to the instruction of ethical journalism through conservative ideas. To date, the National Journalist Center has succeeded in producing thousands of graduates, a testament to the movement and ideas Evans helped build.

His efforts were not limited to creating charity organizations. M. Stanton Evans devoted much of his time challenging the American conscious through moving books. In 1961, Evans released Revolt on Campus, wherein he sought to encourage young conservatives to express their opinions on campus. His book was well received, as more and more youth joined the center-right.

Indeed, M. Stanton Evan’s contributions to conservatism, journalism, and collegiate youth will be unmatched for years to come. The conservative movement lost one of its forefathers on Tuesday. Americans for Tax Reform would like to express its deepest condolences to his family and wish them well in the future.

Hey Grovie he also said that immigration was going to be the death of the Republican party... but what do you care? You will still collect your millions form corporations...

You must have been delighted that the chicken excrement GOP caved on Obama's amnesty. You won son!

You and this organization are complete fools. You are helping Barack to import a voting block that will be more socialist than today's democrat. You are a complete traitor to conservatives. You are a quisling.... peddling amnesty to end the possibility of small government... Barack knows he gets 70 to 80 percent of the people you want to import.

So you know what you can do with your no tax pledge while you support amnesties and massive open door immigration...
