Happy 4th of July to all the patriots out there! This holiday weekend, take time to reflect on freedom, and the values that make America great.

Virginia Wins Again

Virginia activists scored another victory this week. First they fought back against ObamaCare’s Medicaid expansion and won. And now they won another big battle for economic freedom.

When the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles sent a cease-and-desist to the ride-sharing services Uber and Lyft, citizens were outraged.

Uber and Lyft provide a cheap, quality alternative to government-controlled taxis. That’s why the medallioned-cab industry used the government to crack down on the competition.

But Virginians fought back. They used the FreedomWorks action center and told Governor Terry McAuliffe and DMV Commissioner Richard Holcomb. There was a large social media campaign to revoke the cease-and-desist order. And in the end, the citizens of Virginia won.


The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles reportedly gave up its crusade to ban Uber and Lyft. Grassroots action made the difference.

This powerful lesson proves what patriots can accomplish whenever government steps outside its normal bounds and hurts small business.

Where Do They Stand

Does your congressman support the government spying on you?

Now you can find out exactly where your elected representatives rank when it comes to protecting YOUR civil liberties.

FreedomWorks teamed up with over a dozen political organizations, including the Electronic Frontier Foundation, to create a one-stop scorecard for anyone who values their constitutional right to privacy.

This is a political scorecard that bridges traditional political divides. Conservatives and liberals joined together to rank each lawmaker.

It’s simple: if your congressman or senators voted to protect your privacy, they receive a favorable grade. If not, they fail.

Check out where your lawmakers rank on the “Stand Against Spying” Congressional Scorecard.
