I doubt if this will stop it, but the GOP is forcing Dem's to jump through hoops.
Hmm, still catching up on emails, after being out distributing Tea Party flyers and going to a GOP meeting. So, hotheads are threatening Dem "lawmakers," huh? As much as I condemn violence, or even threats of violence, the Dem legislators' indignation and trembling fear make me smile. Admit it- you feel the same way, right?…

A former CBO head not in the clutches of Obama/Pelosi/Reid has a slightly different take on Obamacare ....
.. or just contribute ditrectly to your favorite Conservative candidate.
Just a footnote: A liberal associate looked at this web site and asked: 'If the Tea Party is supposed to be non-partisan, why isn't it praising any Democrats?," to which I replied, "send me a list of real Conservative Democrats and I'll publish it here for you." Still waiting. And waiting ....
By the way, I do not assume that Republicans are all Conservative. Au contraire. The GOP is…Continue

"The math behind this is ugly. Medicare's long-term liabilities now total $89 trillion, according to the Government Accountability Office. Based on projected deficits, the just-passed health reform will take that to $136 trillion."
Just to put that in perspective:
- Annual federal budget $3.6 TRILLION
- U.S. GDP $13-14 TRILLION
- Estimated world GDP $55 trillion
Folks, we are…Continue

You may have seen him on TV or in our video section.
A Tenth Amendment "nullification" movement was already building, for such things as gun rights and even marijuana use. It is quickly mushrooming, now that huge costs and curtailment of liberties are threatened, via Obamacare ...…

John, I really don't believe that you're "My Friend." I also don't understand what your plan is to "repeal this bill immediately," other than soliciting more of my hard-earned money, like that I sent to help support your insipid campaign and the hours I spent trying to get people to vote for the lesser of two evils, something I can't say I was super-motivated about. Were you TRYING to lose?
Late last night, the…

Messages like this will be coming in thick and fast. This one is from a CA American Independent Party gubernatorial candidate. It's nice to see an actual plan, even if only a sketchy outline, instead of just whining about it.…Continue

"Obviously, yes, I was upset yesterday. I'm glad that this could bring so much joy to peoples' hearts, and of course to know that for many people, the happiest part of passing health care reform seems to have been knowing that it made people like me unhappy. The people wondering why I was so upset should contemplate that first, I think you people just screwed up both our health care system, and our fiscal system (even…Continue

Actually, it's been dying for a long time. It seems like Mr. Patterson has already given up. Have you? I haven't, or you probably wouldn't be on this web site. Maybe I'm just a slower learner. What do YOU think?

Send one of these to all legislators voting for Obamacare…
But, a new war also starts today: The attack on Liberalism.
"This rush to political suicide by an overtly socialist Democrat Party barely disguises the real intent of this travesty of legislative process: the health care reform bill is Communism. Socialism is a 'cooperative' between business and Government. Communism's hallmark is the Government's possession of the means of production. I trot out this aged mare to make a point: a government that can nationalize the better part of a…

In a recent survey of 35 targeted districts, voters sent a message to their Congressmen: If you voted NO on health care in November, and you flip your vote to YES this weekend ... pack your bags and call the movers.
And if you happen to be a staffer for a Democrat who votes YES ... you’d better get a head start on your friends. Ever try to line up a moving…
