Grassroots Vigilance

Uncategorized

Wednesday evening I addressed WE THE PEOPLE OF BRUNSWICK COUNTY NORTH CAROLINA (www.wethepeopleofnc.com). The crowd included everyone from business leaders to retirees to a few Minutemen who traveled there from South Carolina. Everyone was united by a single cause, anxious to debate the issues, and serious about sending a liberty-minded representative to Washington in 2010. They understand the crisis of capitalism and freedom we are facing.

We discussed the folly of the President’s incessant stimulus mentality and Baucus’ wealth redistribution scheme disguised as “healthcare reform.” But one thing stood out to me during my visit. If you think the current wave of grassroots interest in reforming Washington is just about electing Republicans, think again. During both my presentation and the Q&A, the most vocal responses came when the Olympia Snow and Lindsey Graham were mentioned. Members of the group expect socialism from Frank, Dodd, and Obama; their real disgust seems to be more with those who CLAIM to uphold our values of freedom but have abandoned the cause. Alex Isenstadt  noted this Sunday on POLITICO (http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1009/28157.html). Just being a Republican isn’t good enough anymore.

It’s always encouraging to see likeminded Americans committed to real change. However, I was asked if I thought there was a realistic chance that we could turn things around. While these are not good times for conservatives, but there are a couple of bright spots. Americans are starting to see socialism firsthand, and many don’t like what they’re seeing. The light has also been shined on Democrats in Washington who identified themselves as moderates during the Bush years. If these so-called blue dogs vote with Pelosi, they will face the wrath of voters back home next year. This creates opportunities for conservative challengers who should have little difficulty distinguishing themselves from the likes of Pelosi and Reed in 2010.

With Obama in the White House and Democrat majorities in the House and Senate, our battle is definitely uphill. There’s a lot of work to do in the next 12 months, and we already have a huge mess to clean up if we can change the balance of power on Capitol Hill in 2010. WE CAN DO THIS, but if we want real change in Washington, we need to help educate our friends and co-workers about the issues we face NOW. Let’s keep fighting.

    Snowe did more damage as a Republican voting for the Baucus bill than if she were a Democrat. Now the bill is being called moderate and bipartisan because one liberal Republican voted for it. Maine needs to get rid of her.

    These Republicans and Dems that are milk toast, wimps, gutless liars while our nation is made into a third world country right before our eyes is disgusting…I am for throwing the all out…

    I expect crap from the likes of John Kerry who has helped co-sponsor in the latest Defense bill taking MUCH NEEDED funds (20-million) from our troops (WHO ARE DYING FOR LACK OF SUPPORT)and proposed building a monstrosity memorial in honor of Edward Kennedy. I like Andrew Wilkow’s suggestion: Build a large round pool with some nice rock and put the ass end of a 1969 Oldsmobile sticking out of it!!

    We can survive with liberal democrats in congress as long as we have strong conservatives there to keep the government off our back. I will not vote for another rino just because he is running against a democrat. I’ll vote independent, libertarian, write-in or sit out.

    I am not very optimistic about us EVER getting back to where we were pre Obama. I can see realistic scenarios where we don’t get to vote, due to some manufactured crisis, or massive voter fraud, on the scale never seen before. The suspect congressmen act as if they know something we don’t, and with the media turning a blind eye and deaf ear, I fear we will not be able to oust them from office. Think it can’t happen to us? Think again. Many of us on the right are downright naive; we think, Democrats can’t really be doing the things they do because they are evil, they’re just ignorant. No, they are just evil. Second, the majority of the Republicans are just spineless/gutless oafs. We are too afraid of being called racists and bigots, so we don’t stand up. Speaking truth to power only works with Democrats, because Republicans don’t EVER, as a whole speak up and call a spade a spade. So…”We have no brains, and I must scream!” – One lone black guy from OK (or so it seems).
