The time has come. We in this movement and in America have been pushed and our backs are now against the wall. We must go radical.
What is it that we must do and be so radical about?
We are going to have to force our Republican supporters and the few sane Democrats to an unpleasant proposition.
We cannot raise the debt ceiling again.
This means we must tell our Congressmen that John Boehner must not be allowed to raise his freshly laundered white flag of surrender.
Boehner promised us last year that he would hold spending in. Instead he caved to the Democrats every chance he could. We saw the debt ceiling raised by over $2 trillion dollars.
What did we get for that?
Not a thing.
Now he says we might have to have some temporary short term increases in the debt ceiling but they must be offset by spending cuts.
Haven’t we heard that before?
Senator Tom Coburn says we have 2 to 5 years before a financial meltdown. He is an optimist. We may not have that much time.
This time, we have to make or message very clear to the people in Washington. There can be no increase in the debt ceiling.
We are already seeing the waves of economic distress in Europe. One of the Ministers for the outgoing Greek government openly warned of economic collapse and civil war. He talked about gangs of men on the streets with Kalashnikovs and the winner being the one with the most AK-47s.
In 2007, our deficit was only $187 billion. Obama blows through that in a month now.
What do we have to show for it?
Our debt now exceeds our gross domestic product.
What do we have to show for it?
We the people now have to become radical. Our message to all of our members of Congress is going to be very simple. Under no circumstances will you vote for an increase in the debt ceiling. We want you to make that pledge that you will not vote for an increase in the debt ceiling.
If we do not raise the debt ceiling, Congress must cut the budget. Right now our deficit is $1.5 trillion. The General Accountability Office has indentified hundreds of billions of dollars in waste, fraud and duplication of services.
None of this has been acted on. Obama still continues to spend money. John Boehner continues to fly his white flag of surrender in the spring breeze above the Potomac River.
One of the best ideas in Congress continues to languish and will face and almost certain death. HR 2680 is the Federal Realignment and Closure Commission. It is the idea of Congressman John Fleming of Louisiana. The plan takes away the ability of individual congressmen to save pet projects. It goes through the Federal government looking for programs that are wasteful, fraud ridden, duplicative or have simply failed. The Commission identifies programs for termination and then the plan is sent to the House and Senate for a straight up or down vote.
We are wasting hundreds of billions of dollars a year, we are borrowing trillions that will end up bankrupting this nation, yet we have a plan to cut spending and John Boehner is too much of a girly man to stand up and fight?
Our message to our Congressmen must be crystal clear. There are no circumstances that justify raising the debt ceiling and if you vote to raise the debt ceiling, we will spend the next two years working to get you out of office.
So Judson what's the plan then? It seems a lot of us are looking to you for direction. You have a lot more contacts than I do. Writing to my Reps. is a waste. I got Shumer, Gillabrand, and Hochel, not a lot to work with there.
You can write to Reps. and Senators from other states as well, not only your own. But, millions of people writing to the Liberals you mentioned can't be ignored by them either. There is much we can do, including joining all the grass roots organizations we're able to which are fighting to get these socialists out of office.
The main thing is, David, never give up. We'll never get anywhere if we do.
The 2010 election was about ObamaCare. and we still have it. They can and will ignore us because they do not fear us.
Thomas, get real. ObamaCare cannot be overturned until we control all three branches of government. Period. The House, in case you are not aware, has already crafted and passed legislation to overturn ObamaCare, then sent it on to the Senate, as the Constitution mandated, where it was promptly voted down by the Dem majority there. If it had passed the Senate, Obama would have vetoed it.
My point was the Tea Party candidates ran on overturning ObamaCare in 2010 and won big time. But the republicans will want to keep it in one form or another. Because they do not care what we think or what the Constitution says. That is real
Here is another one. All spending starts in the House. If they really wanted it gone, all they have to do is stop the funding. But then again, the republicans like it, but just in another form.That is real
Here is another one. The House hold investigative powers. Obama's father was not a citizen (or ever was) when he was born. So Obama is not a Natural Born Citizen and is not eligible to be president. That means everything he signed is null and void. Where is the House leadership on that? They care not about election fraud or the Constitution. That is real
Here is another one. Congress does not care what we think. They bring in illegals and promise them the moon and stars for illegal votes, steal elections and set in place unconstitutional laws that we will be stupid enough to think we are obligated to follow. That is real
Those are good points -- when you're in war, you fight on all fronts, not just the skirmish at hand. The RINO leadership could have done many things. It is time for them to finally realize what's at stake, and take all means necessary. Boehner out, Bachmann in.
Bachmann lost my support when she took position that the eligibility issue was UNimportant and that she believed O when he said he is a natural born citizen.
Strange is it not that many otherwise bright people shy away from this topic?
When all else fails, you must follow the only remaining route. Voting has failed. Writing letters has failed. Sending faxes has failed, sending emails has failed, calling out the New York Times has failed.
Obama is not eligible to be President and the case grows by the day, despite the opposition of congress, the FBI, the Hawaii DOH, the Courts on all levels, the Rinos, the regular Repulicans, and almost every lying news source. WHY?
They don't want to lose their jobs or have people make fun of them. The truth is the truth. Going radical means accepting the truth and acting on it.
The only non-violent way to remove Obama, his executive orders, his Supreme Court appointments, and Obamacare is for a citizens Grand Jury to decide on the question:
IS OBAMA ELIGIBLE TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?
You are correct ! It is going to take a constant and consistent effort on ALLof our parts along with everyone we can each enlist to turn this ridiculous mess around ! Truth be known, we need to be present every day around the capital, pushing for repeal of ALL the increased spending in the budgets of the last 15 years and if we can accomplish that, we can go back further !
We should start by calling for salaries and benefits of congress and the administration to cease until they bring spending down to 1985 levels OR explain every expenditure and why it cannot be eliminated !
DAvid: I'm stuck with Gillibrat and Upchuck too -- Gillibrat is running for re-election in November. There will be a primary for the republican candidate.
Support that person and remove Gillibrat from office.
Dave: Judson has no plan except to keep posting garbage that incites people to anger instead of giving giving them a plan to focus on and follow.
