I hope it makes sense to you, and that you'll join the effort:
I'm writing to let you know that some of us from the Tea Party are organizing an "action" group because we want to do more than just come together every few months to demonstrate. (Of course we'll still attend the Tea Parties...!)
"We The People" is a non-partisan group of patriots who are extremely concerned by what is happening to our country before our very eyes.
We certainly blame Øbama and the Democrats. But we acknowledge that without the spineless, and often corrupt cooperation of the Career Republican Politicians, a lot of what has already gone wrong would not have happened.
Øbama may be the worst President in history, but he is standing on the shoulders of the avarice, ambition, greed, selfishness and corruption of many generations of grasping, out-of-touch, power-hungry, dirty-dealing, elitest, self-serving CAREER POLITICIANS of both parties. And what they have created, or allowed to be created under their noses has made possible Øbama's rushing freight train to perdition.
And let's not even TALK about Republican spending!
I have thought about this a great deal, and I believe that there are three things we need to concentrate on:
1) Stop Socialized Medicine
2) Stop Cap & Trade
3) Throw The Bums Out!
I believe that every other issue, crime and outrage (of which there are so many every day, most of us feel as though we were drowning in piles of manure) will be manageable if we can accomplish #1 & #2.
Stopping these from going through will prevent the installation of infrastructure that will be nearly impossible to remove. And forbiding them to Øbama, will damage him politically—something we very much need to do. Even the Cult Media cannot spin the total loss of his two major Imperial State power grabs.
His regulations and taxes and fiats and budgets and horrid foreign policy can all be undone by a better and subsequent administration. But Cap & Trade devastates Business and Socialized Medicine devestates Private care which makes it difficult to restore them. In addition, they both install vast bureaucracies that will be much more difficult to dismantle.
We must concentrate on them. And together we can do it. Many in the Senate are already uncomfortable with Cap & Trade. And we have both houses as yet to work on regarding Health Care. But we have to get started NOW!
As for #3, it is very simple, though not easy. By 2010...a little over a year (and if not, then in 2012), we must try to get as many incumbents voted out of Congress as possible.
Here's the good part:
It does not matter whether they are Democrat or Republican. It does not matter whether they are good or bad. It does not matter whether they are honest or crooked. THAT IS NOT THE POINT.
We do not have to find good replacements. Or worry about issues. No. All we have to do is vote out all incumbents.
Why is this a good thing? What if we get someone worse in than we voted out, if we just vote against the incumbent?
It's called LEVERAGE. When you've got it, you can even make jerks do what's right! And it's called FEAR!
OUR GOVERNMENT IS SUPPOSED TO FEAR US. THIS IS HOW WE MAKE THAT HAPPEN!
1) If we can get say, 25%, of the incumbents tossed out, Congress will FREAK. It will look like an ant hill somebody flooded.
Their cushy jobs, their insulated existences will be blown wide open. They'll know they have targets on their backs, and that nobody is safe. That's very motivating.
This will be true of election survivors, as well as those who didn't face election that year, and every one of the "replacements" who benfited from the encumbents' losses.
A SCARED Congress is a WELL-BEHAVED Congress.
It's like hitting the mule over the head with the 2 x 4. We need to get their attention.
And writing, calling, petitioning, emailing...isn't working anymore. We can keep doing that, of course, but while we do, we need to grow a national movement to THROW THE BUMS OUT!
And in the mean time, we can ignore the flood of other issues, meant to dissipate our power, confuse our attention, dilute our effectiveness, overwhelm us, frustrate us, tire us and depress us—and in the end make us feel helpless and JUST GIVE UP.
We are Americans. We don't give up. We're tough, smart—and we got game. Let's show them they ain't seen nothin' yet!
I think we need to focus like lasers on CAP & TRADE, HEALTHCARE, and THROW THE BUMS OUT!
Of course, after we make our point, we can find and vote for as many great representatives as we can find in the next election...and toss the rest of the JERKS out on their asses.
I know this is terribly ambitious. And very unorthodox. Even radical.
Isn't it TIME for that? What we've been doing so far certainly IS NOT working.
If you're interested, reply to this address, and we'll meet soon to get started.
If you're not...I sure hope you've got a better idea. And if you do...please SHARE!
Thanks for your patience...reading this long email.
God Bless America
Congress is considering a 1000 pages worth of bill instituting Imperial State control of your Healthcare. (I don't suppose they're bother reading it.)
They're being told by Øbama that it's IMPERATIVE that it gets done quickly. He wants no time wasted killing our country and enslaving us to the State.
Barrage, flood, overwhelm your Congressman with protests against Socialized Medicine. And don't stop. Tell all your friends.
Do the same to your Senators about Cap & Trade.
All the other outrages can wait. If this is adopted, we're finished. Period.
And then our only choices left, in order to live as free folk, become the bloody ones. And nobody wants that.
