At a health care town hall, angry voters confront congressman on the climate bill: ‘I can’t understand for the life of me how you could be one of the Republican traitors!

Republican Mike Castle (who voted Yes for Cap N-Trade ) has some angry constituents who are more angry about Castle’s cap and trade vote.

Way to go Delaware Patriots! “Republican traitors” need to lose their jobs!

Do you support the idea of a STRIKE DAY?

STRIKE DAY! Taking It Up a Notch

Robert of San Jose, CA, a feisty Constitution lover started the ball-rolling on this idea and I’m so glad to have the privilege of working with him.

STRIKE DAY
The Federal Government has gone over the edge.
While we have a deficit of $65 trillion+, the 111th Congress and our President just keep spending, spending, spending. Our elected representatives are ramming pieces of legislation into law faster than a speeding bullet and they don’t even know what’s in them.

Our money supply is controlled by a shady, extra-constitutional entity that has no oversight and carte blanche to print monopoly money at will, devaluing our currency and implementing a stealth tax by way of inflation.
Money is just a uniform way of valuing a product, good, service, or time. When you work, you are being compensated for your time. When government taxes you, they are taking some of your time, taking some of your life away.

Since government spending has reached levels so far beyond what can possibly be repay ed without levels of taxation well into the future that are astronomical, government will be taking more and more of our time, more of our lives away. Based upon what has already been spent, government will be taking a lot of our childrens’ and grandchildrens’ time, and lives too.

Many of us know – THIS MUST STOP!

We make phone calls, we send faxes, and emails to the point of locking up websites and switchboards, where staffers shut off fax machines, but they’re still not getting the message. We’ve taken to the streets in the millions at Tea Parties and they still do not get the message.

Since our previous efforts to get through to government don’t seem adequate by themselves to get the point across, and we cannot wait until 2010 to vote people out of Congress, we need to take further action:

It’s time to crank it up a notch!

We need to hit government right where it currently lives; in it’s pocketbook.

Government’s pocketbook is tax dollars. Government entities tax every aspect of our daily lives from the income earned through our jobs, homes we live in, phones, we communication services we use such as, our phones and Internet, gas we put in our cars, our leisure activities from the adult beverages we may drink to the hotels we stay in on vacation. Even in death, the government wants a cut through estate / inheritance taxes.

All of these activities are some form of commerce from which layers of government benefit.
In order to get the message across that it is time for government to be reduced in size and power to its proper role, we must choke off access to our money by shutting down as many avenues of tax collection as possible.
We propose a STRIKE, meaning that anyone who agrees that government is over the edge, pledges to refrain from all exchange of commerce.

What would a strike entail?

Do not go to work.
Shut down your business.
Do not shop for goods or services such as gas, groceries, movie rentals, clothing, fast food, pizza delivery, car maintenance, hair cuts, etc., etc.
Do engage in any banking transactions of any kind such as ATMs, drive thru, loan closings, etc.
Do not make major purchases such as a car, appliances, property, or a TV.
Do not engage in financial markets such as stock transactions, 401k account changes, etc.
There is NO question that this requires sacrifice from everyone who participates.
We do not suggest that if you are in an employment situation that is tenuous due to a downturn in your industry, that you risk the loss of your job. Go to work if that’s the case. You can do your part by otherwise not engaging in any commerce whatsoever.

A strike could be effective if it were one time thing BEFORE Congress leaves for the August break. We propose Friday, July 31.

A strike could be even more effective if we do it once a month (the last Friday) thereafter UNTIL WE GET THE DESIRED RESULTS.

What say you?

Summaries and Analysis of HR 2454-Cap-N-Trade

cap-n-trade t-shirtRight after the 300 page amendment that was slipped in the bill in the early morning hours of Friday the same day the Cap-n-Trade was voted on and passed, I spend some time with a group of tea party organizers and grassroots activists from across the country.

We decided to divide up 300 page amendment into sections for each person to read. Each person would give give an analysis of the section they read and that analysis would be complied by my friend and Lincoln,NE tea party organizer, Shelli Dawdy. Shelli along with being a tea party organizer is a conservative blogger, wife and home schools her children, so you could rightly say, she is one busy gal!
So Shelli is in the process of compiling the received analysis into one post and I will post it here as soon as I receive it from her
