WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--This week American Encore, a 501c4 organization, launched its efforts to advocate for the First Amendment and restore America’s greatness.
This year American Encore will embark on a $10 million online and TV ad campaign to shed light on those in Washington, D.C. who it believes are seeking to use the IRS against their political enemies, including MN Senator Al Franken. American Encore will begin a $300,000 ad buy in Minnesota this week. The ad can be seen at www.AmericanEncore.org.
The organization is headed by Sean Noble, a Hill veteran who worked for as Chief of Staff to Congressman John Shadegg (R-AZ) for a decade. Over the years Noble became the go-to advisor to conservative candidates and issue campaigns from his home state of Arizona to Washington D.C.
“As our sense of American greatness declines, so too does our willingness to defend those very principles that make us so exceptional. The IRS limits the free speech of nonprofits, the government spies on citizens and journalists, and the White House bypasses congress—the people’s representatives—legislating through Executive Order and federal agency regulations,” said Noble. “It’s a vicious cycle, Americans no longer believe our nation to be exceptional, and so, we elect politicians who make us less exceptional, and the qualities that made us great, erode.”
American Encore will educate and empower Americans to fight the IRS rules that limit free speech. It will also inspire Americans to engage in a conversation on making America great again. As Ronald Reagan said, “And why shouldn't we? Because, after all, we are Americans.”
American Encore believes that a government held accountable by its citizens is a more effective government. In addition to advocating for the exercise of free speech, American Encore will also oppose Obamacare and work on a solution to what it believes to be a disastrous health care law, as well as fight for meaningful entitlement reforms.
