What To Do?

The Health Destruction Bill has passed and Americans are up in Arms. So the question is "What to Do? Well that is obvious. Throw the Democrats out in November.

The great imponderable in American elections is the 30% to 50% (more or less) that don't vote in elections. My guess is that a lot of them will be motivated. Say we can get just 1/2 of that 30% to the polls.

No seat is safe. Not one.

What to do? Voter registration drives. Massive voter registration drives. Starting now.

I've just signed up as a volunteer at my local Republican Party outfit. My district is narrowly Republican; it needs to stay Republican. My state has too many Democrats holding too many seats in both local and national chambers. They need to go.

From Edward Cline's site The Rule of Reason:
Many of the proposed lawsuits against Obamacare are focusing on the language of the Constitution. One of the more credible arguments is that while Congress may regulate commerce between the states (the term regulate meaning something entirely different to the Founders, chiefly that individual state commercial law should have some uniformity), how can Congress regulate non-activity or no commerce? Or cause the commerce to occur, such as mandating the purchase of health insurance, whether within states or across state lines, and then “regulate“ it?

Among those opposed to the health care takeover legislation, I think there are at least two groups forming. The first group is putting its time, energy, and financial resources into the political arena and hoping that the 2010 congressional elections will elect many new conservatives and begin to reverse the worse aspects of the Obama socialist agenda. The second group has concluded that a national financial meltdown is now unavoidable in the near term and consequently is prudently putting their time and money into preparing to weather the coming storm. As for me, my first priority in the coming months will be preparation related and then beginning in October, I will try to find some time to help a conservative political campaign. I have no faith that future Republicans can or will safe us from Obama's agenda, but I'll donate some time and leg work to politics after the food larder is full and my personal defense cache is well stocked. This is good advice for anyone on the liberty side of the political divide.

Tom,

The problem I see is that for DECADES citizens let government and esp. schools run on autopilot. Only political junkies took an interest. The attitude of the rest of the population was: "we can live with this".

As Eric points out in many of his posts - the Republicans were interested in making war on their citizens with a cultural theme. The Democrats stole what they could get away with.

And aside from some crazed libertarians no one saw the whole picture. obama has focused our minds. Now Republicans are way more accepting of the libertarian frame of reference. About time.

M. Simon, you were so right in trying to warn us about Obama and Chicago thug politics before and after the election. As to Republicans accepting libertarian ideas, I hope that's true. I saw a sign of it Sunday night in a junior congressman from California, Devin Nunes from Tulare. He was genuinely outraged, and scared, by the thug tactics.
He said that "we are worried sick about this" referring to the no rules, 60's radical style takeover of congress. If they can get away with this, anything is possible.
At this point, I don't know if even the election will matter.
Obama's role model seems to be Chavez.
