Obama building permanent political army
Modern Conservative ^ | November 22, 2008

Obama calls on his Internet campaign army to march again

WASHINGTON — President-elect Barack Obama's 3 million campaign volunteers got re-enlistment notices this week.


Campaign manager David Plouffe, in a mass e-mail sent Wednesday to former workers, asked how much time they can spare for four missions integral to Obama's effort to transform his victory into a broader political movement.

The volunteers' options are, Plouffe wrote:

"Obama's building a political machine," said Stephen Hess, a presidential scholar at the Brookings Institution, a center-left Washington research group . . .

What, you thought they were just going to stop? That they were just going to rest on their laurels?

As I have repeated 100 times, verbally and in print over the last couple of years, the left is waging total war on every front. They always will; it's what they do. They do it overseas and their adjuncts here do it here.

Unless conservatives start getting involved, not just at election time, but 24/7/365 . . .

Unless conservatives—epecially (though not limited to) wealthy conservatives—start opening up their wallets like the left's funders do . . .

Unless we start fighting they way they do—unremittingly, on every front . . .

. . . unless we do these things, we are in serious trouble. AnyStreet.org is doing its part, but we need your help!

if we had built a conservative ‘army’ in the way Obama has, imagine the media bashing that would have occurred. If we had a candidate raise $650 million plus and forgo public financing, imagine the uproar.

This hypocritical aspect of the election bothers me more than anything. If they do it, they are lauded. If we do it, we are attacked.

I’ve said for years that the Left is intent on subjugation of the US. They take a long view and will do anything, by any means necessary, to seize power. I saw in 1979 and it’s been one constant through the years.

The Chicago political machine comes to Washington. If successful you will never see someone outside the machine elected again. That’s the way it works in Chicago.

Unfortunately the youth of today are a bunch of kool aid drinkers with little to no sense. But what is even more ridiculous is that Obama is just Clinton 2, choosing the same people that have not changed since they served under Clinton, this is just more of the same with a new name on the mast head.

Mind-boggling. America has just been taken over from the inside, in a bloodless coup undertaken and celebrated by the unwitting majority. Whodathunkit???

It will be interesting to see if you Yanks get to vote in 4 years time — or ever again.

Unbe-freaking-lievable.

Well, its up to the conservatives to use this a model ourselves.

If a technique works, mimic it and refine it. It worked for the ancient Romans and it will work with us.

And it all began with the grassroots community organization to ACORN to winning. It’s going to take some doing to turn this battleship around.

The MSM are his greatest allies. There’s just so much kool-aid to go around, and new batches (more powerful) are being formulated.

And we’ve been funding it for years through funds directed by Congress to ACORN and such-like for “community services”.

Seriously!

It seems like we are very good at pointing out what they are doing, and then wringing our hands over it.

They aren’t doing anything illegal or immoral. They are trying to keep their people active and engaged. A far cry from what the right did after 2004, when most of our side decided to take the rest of the year off.

I have news for you. Those people are not unemployed or just collecting gov’ment checks.

They just give a damn about their cause, and are willing to devote time to it.

It’s not good enough to just say that you are working and think that gives you bonus points or hope that someone else will take care of the political stuff.

Patriots, Constitutional conservatives have got to do the same thing. Organize on a state and and local level.

Pocket sized booklets on what socialism and communism does to society must be printed and distributed to Jr. High and High School students. You've got to stand outside of the school gates and offer these free to students (without any coercion).

If people who still believe in the Constitution, the American heritage, a market economy, and so forth, don't begin education drives, the leftists will keep filling the vacuum.

Further, Biblicist Christian people have got to turn off the TV and Internet, get on their knees with their families and repent and pray for the deliverance of the nation, and then go out and practice personal Christian evangelism of their neighbors. If they don't, then Darwinian Humanism, the religion of the government schools will continue to fill that void.

Why don’t we eliminate nonprofit corporations in this country? That is what will save individual rights and freedom of speech.

We couldn’t have built a conservative army for two reasons.

1. You develop a political army around the personality of one candidate, i.e. A Cult of Personality. Think Hitler or Mussolini

2. Conservatives can’t agree on anything much less one candidate that they would all support unquestioningly.

You mean that stealing elections, falsifying ballots, aborting the innocent unborn, allowing gays to make a laughing stock out of marriage and encouraging vagrant non-productive behavior is moral?

Thanks for “enlightening” me. S/

Have not seen this posted - but wondered if anyone heard the references on Fox to inaugurating Obama immediately?
Once in a passing comment by Geraldine Ferraro over the weekend and then again this morning by Bill Hemmer speaking with Bob Beckel - referred to overturning the 20th Amendment.

Pressure is on Bush to ‘share’ the Presidency until Obama gets in... and it looks to me like he is acquiescing.

Soon all the conservative BDS folks here on FR are going to be kicking themselves in the a$$ for participating in his demonization and the demise of the conservative movement.

They will even pray for GWB's brand of conservatism to return because BHO is going to turn this nation upside down.

He is going to consolidate the left's power and spread it's tentacles into every aspect of our lives that just may last for generations!

No. Believing in a cause and devoting time to pushing it.

I dont like what they fight FOR, but I cant just dismiss their energy to fight or it.

And whether we want to admit it or not, they believe in liberal-socialism with a drive and passion that dwarfs our sides belief in libertarian-conservatism.

Dont want to do anything? Ok. But then dont get frustrated when the other side wins.

ACORN is just the Union for the Government Welfare Check Voter.

Give them free stuff or they strike by not voting for you.

Generation Lazy.

I noticed you do not have an obama sticker on your vehicle.

Are you some form of subversive? Even if you did not vote for obama, I am sure you did, it is subversive to not show support for the chancelor president by failing to have a sticker on your vehicle.

(/s)

(s take two)

I see here you are a registered republican, unfortunatly as long as you are registered as a republican, we can not refinance your mortgage. You must at least register as independent.

Obama managed to get all those misfits out of their mother’s basements and doing something. Now they are demanding he supply them with jobs. Naturally The Great Spreader will use tax-payer money to fund these no-accounts and provide them with make-work jobs until the next election. Then they can all take a hike as far as Obama is concerned.

Actually, he said he would "fund the civilian security forces as well as the military is, and that they would be as powerful, and as well equipped."

Although he may be able to use some of these volunteers in those positions, I expect the security force positions to be filled with the Black Panther/Brown Muslim types, because they are already radicals who hate whites and America! They will be his paid enforcers/body guards. That's just my guess but I think I'm close enough to being right that it scares me! lol.. They ALL hate us and they would jump at the chance to be paid for working in a position where they could legally get even with the whites who forced them into slavery!

Mate, it IS PARADISE, I would never voluntarily move back to Canada, and there are plenty of Yanks here learning how to be Kiwis. Immigration is straightforward. LOL and I hope you “make the jump” across the ditch. If you do, look me up.

And you won’t even need to keep your guns: I sold all mine when I left Canada and have not felt the urgency to replace them. You can, however, own guns here if you really must. It isn’t a right, it’s a Privilege. But even so, we have a very high per-populace gun ownership (I think it is even higher than the US, believe it or not).

But why have them? Harsh language and an awesome left hook has kept me in good stead for many, many years.

I keep dogs, an air rifle for varmints, and a pair of nunchuks. Good enough for me.
