We have not yet begun to pester!
John Paul Jones
Damn the Republicans, Full Speed Ahead!
Did we quit when The Germans bombed Pearl Harbor???
Senator Bluto Blutarsky
Did you think this was going to be easy?
Did you think The Ruling Class and their lobbyists and their bought politicians were going to just roll over and give you what is rightfully yours, a decent affordable Health Care system and equal economic rights?
Haha! No my friends……THIS IS WAR!
Class War to be exact, as we can see from the most sensible proposal to pay for Health care…..Taxing the Millionaires who have gotten a free ride under the Bush Tax Cuts being shot down as soon as it was floated. ‘They’ have pulled out all the stops of the Mighty Wurlitzer of the Right Wing Noise and Influence Machine and it is playing full blast….and drowning out the voices of The People in the hallowed halls of what is supposed to be OUR government.
To The Barricades!
Yes, oh fellow fighters for economic justice, we are being outspent, out accessed, out influenced and out yelled by The Powers That Be in Washington DC. But this is WAR! And we cannot afford (Literally!!!) to give up.
Full Speed Ahead!
The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it NOW deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.
If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.
I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto
death.making a bunch of phone calls!!!
Thomas Paine, sort of
EVERY Congressional aide has said time and time again that by far the best way to influence Congress is to phone, phone, phone Congress. (e-mail and fax too!)
This IS The War, right here and right now, Health Care is the Battlefield. If we win this, it is The Republican Waterloo, it is the Blue Dog Waterloo, it is Victory for the People and defeat for the Insurance Company and Health Care hegemony arms of the Ruling Class….plus….
YOU get better Health Care!
If YOU want Health Care, YOU must do this.
If YOU want Equal Rights we have to win this battle first.
If you want accountability for torture we have to win this battle first.
If you want financial reform we HAVE to make this the Waterloo of the Ruling Class….or it WILL be Obama’s Waterloo….
But if we DO buckle down, work hard and win this battle we WILL break them. Each victory diminishes their power and exposes them for what they really are.
It is ONLY by starting….starting HERE….to break down the hold that the Ruling Class has on Congress and asserting the power of We The People that we will get meaningful Change.
As Churchill (sort of) said…
We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills, we shall fight on our cell phones; we shall never surrender!
To The Barricades….and Telephones!
Call YOUR Representative, (no matter how bad they are!) and tell them you demand a Public Option. Call YOUR Senators, (no matter how bad they are!) and tell them you demand a Public Option…..
And then go to the dairies of the Heroes of Health Care, NYCeve and slinkerwink and follow their action plans!
We CAN win this!!!
