Washington DC Tea Party

Tea Party Patriots Bringing the Conscience of America to Washington DC

Shell Games or What Goes Around Comes Around

So you say you don’t like Obamacare, it’s unconstitutional.  You think Chief Justice Roberts got it wrong, legislated from the bench and called a penalty a tax so that the bill would survive.  You know that if they called the personal mandate a tax back in 2010, the bill would never have passed the first time.  The mere size of this power grab, control over 1/6th of our economy, scares the dickens out of you.   You worry about what further encroachments on your liberty are in store.

You’re right to be scared and a damn sight more to be mad!   Obamacare is unconstitutional and the SCOTUS decision simply ignores what the constitution makes inconvenient.  The Origination Clause of the Constitution clearly states that all bills involving the raising of revenue must originate in the House of Representatives, that body which is closest and most accountable to the citizens.  H.R. 3590 was a bill introduced in the House by Representative Charlie Rangel that gave a tax credit to military and certain foreign-service federal employees who sold a house in a job related move.  It passed the House 416-0 and went to the Senate.  Harry Reid promptly gutted the bill entirely including the title and then under the House bill number inserted a whole new bill and title, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (Obamacare).  Here is a good article explaining the violation of the Origination Clause in detail: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/06/29/Justice-Roberts

So there you have it, Obamacare was given life by a shell game and last month its life was saved by another shell game.

How do you vent some of that anger and allay those fears?  How do we set things straight?  It’s as easy as making 3 phone calls.  Simply call this number (202)-225-0600 and ask Speaker Boehner to go ahead with the vote to repeal Obamacare, since this will put everyone’s position on Obamacare in the House on record going into the election.  Then immediately file suit against Obamacares violation of the Origination Clause.  Second call Majority Leader Eric Cantor at (202)-225-2815 or (202)-225-4000 and ask him to do the same.  Then call your Congressman via the Capitol Switchboard at (202)-225-3121 or (202)-224-3121 or Toll Free (877)-762-8762.  Each and every member of the House of Representatives has “standing” in this matter to bring a suit.  Always be courteous

So now you’re feeling a little better, but everyone knows that lawsuits can take a couple of years and the outcomes can be dicey as we just saw.  So you ask yourself, “What else can I do?”  Here is a short list that will be relatively painless between now and election day, especially when you compare to what the founders endured:

  1. Get involved, commit some time, between now and election day to help an organized effort whether knocking doors, making phone calls or reaching out into the community in other ways.  Trolling cyber space, even if it is Facebook or Twitter, will not set you free.  Getting the government out of your life will set you free.
  2. Establish a personal goal of bringing a friend, family member or associate to the polls that would not normally vote.  Impress upon them how important this year is, how close to the precipice our country is, who knows they may bring some others too.  If each of us finds one more, we double our clout.
  3. Dig deep, freedom is not free.  Find a Republican Senate candidate to support with time and treasure.  Campaigns are expensive and we must “Flip the Senate” this year if we are to have any chance at saving our Country as we know it.  Surely there is something you are willing to give up for your liberty; a few lattes, an evening out on the town, with the price of gas that long drive in the country, or maybe just decide to make an extra investment in yours, your kids and your grandkids future and freedom.  If you are comfortable, consider donations to your Congressional candidate, Republican Party and Romney.
  4. Wear a bumper sticker or two, maybe even three as are on our cars.  One each for Romney, your U.S. Senate and your Congressional race candidates.  You may even find one bumper sticker with all three amigos on it.  Each sticker (Today’s vinyl stickers peel off easily) is worth $300.00 in advertising between now and the election.
  5. Sport one or more yard signs supporting your Republican candidates.  They are easy to get, check out political events in your area or go by the local Republican HQ or the campaign offices.  Mr. Google can be really helpful in finding them.
  6. Get the facts and stand your ground.  Don’t be intimidated by liberal media bias or belligerent liberals.  This Country was founded from principles right of center, was built and became great from right of center solutions like limited government and free markets, and developed a national morality and sense of justice that made our Nation the “Shining city on a hill”, the number one economy in the world, the leader of the free world.  The liberals, would revere “Mother Earth” before God, would save a tree or terrorist and forsake a baby, would put a world order before our national sovereignty, would force their immorality on everyone, would ban prayer in public places but open the sessions of Congress with prayer, would hold two sets of standards one for the right which is do as the left says but not as they do and one for the left which says we can do as we please and blame the right if it doesn’t work out.  Don’t waste time arguing with liberals, if they had a lick of sense they wouldn’t be a liberal.  With a grasp of the facts and a firm conviction others will follow your lead.

There you have it, a short list as promised.  Remember always, we are right the left is wrong.  In the end we win, they lose.  When that will come is determined by the answer to this question, “If not you then who, if not now then when?”  Let’s all pull together and make the November 6, 2012 election the shot that is heard around the world.  Let’s drive a stake through the heart of liberal oppression, mediocrity and economic slavery and launch the beginning of a renewed era of freedom, economic opportunity and world leadership.

Together we can take this first giant step in securing our future and honoring our founding fathers’ legacy by turning our great Nation around..

Take The Town Halls To Washington

Nationwide Tea Party Coalition - "Take The Town Halls To Washington"
MEMPHIS, Tennessee (March 5, 2010) - The Nationwide Tea Party Coalition is today announcing a new project, "Take The Town Halls To Washington", which is designed to bring tea party activists to Washington, DC during the month of March to meet, question and review the positions of approximately 60 Democrat members of the House of Representatives whose vote on the pending Health Care legislation has not yet been publicly announced. Tea Party Nation is a collaborating partner in the project.
Spokesman Mark A. Skoda, who is also Chairman of The Memphis TEA Party stated, "President Obama has indicated his willingness to ignore the people and force his bill through Congress using whatever means necessary. Our objective is to bring thousands of constituents to DC to meet with their representatives, capture their comments and produce a review of those positions on a daily basis. We believe that time is of the essence and the people need to understand where these representatives stand before any vote is taken."
Organizer, Michael Patrick Leahy further stated, "After more than a year of tea party resistance to the big government efforts of the Obama Administration, it all comes down to the next 3 weeks. The Administration has made it clear. They intend to ram down the Health Care takeover through a corrupt Congress by the end of this month, in direct defiance of the clearly expressed will of the American people.”
“It is time for every tea party activist across the country to consider dropping everything he or she is doing and join us in the most important battle of our life time. We need your energy, commitment, and efforts to make this succeed. We need you to consider coming to Washington during this 3 week period, and if you can’t come to Washington, be part of this project in your local area.”
A nationwide webcast is scheduled for Tuesday, March 9, 2010 with meetings in DC scheduled to begin the following day through March 31, 2010. Logistics are being coordinated for those coming to Washington and daily briefings and reviews are scheduled during the project. It is expected that visits will take place while Congress is in session from Monday through Friday.
The Nationwide Tea Party Coalition is an informal federation of thirty local tea parties from around the country who work collaboratively on important national projects. It was the group that organized the February 27, 2009 “Nationwide Chicago Tea Party” in 51 cities around the country that launched the Tea Party Movement, as well as the April 15, 2009 Tax Day Tea Party, where 1 million tea party activists attended events in over 900 cities.
