We're Coming for You, Congress, Billboard

I-75 Lake City bill-board

The photo below is of a billboard recently established on I-75 just south of Lake City [ Florida ]. They gathered there to celebrate its unveiling. The cost of 10 months rental of the billboard and doing the artwork was $6500. We feel that is a reasonable cost to reach out to 1,000,000 vehicles per month and perhaps motivate their participation in the electoral process to get our country on a sound footing.

Check out this billboard in Lake City, FL. This could be a very effective way to get the attention of Allen Boyd and other politicians who don't listen to their constituents.

http://beforeitsnews.com/story/19654/Billboard_Lake_City,_Fla_Were_Coming_For_You_Congress.html

I envision a Billboard simply stating that House Appropriations Committee Chair Allen Boyd appropriated himself $1.3 million. A brief summary of his liberal votes could be pictured as well.

Awesome... I hope the rental fee includes armed guards to scare off riff-raff bleeding heart liberals, socialists, and commies that will no doubt target it for destruction.

I truly do not recall the massive public outcry against a President and his party as we have had in the last year. One would THINK this would somewhere register with the left.

Americans are angry - massive march on Washington, TEA party protests across the country, Town Hall Meetings Gone Wild, poll ratings plumeting, conservatives getting voted in, etc. Am I wrong?

Or maybe the politicians will decide to do away with the elections. It wouldn't be the first time in history.

Set up some disguised 24-hr video cameras and bust the little sweathearts. I say 24-hr because the roaches come out at night.

What is the cost of the rental? The Print Shop will have this stored.

Oops, Combined on 6,500? All we need is 65 FReepers per every sign to pitch in a hundred bucks. Plant these all over our interstates.

I prefer "progressives" to "statists" or "liberals", but your term is the most accurate.

Whatever you call them; don’t limit yourself to Congress...there are plenty of aspiring statists at the local levels...don’t forget to nip their careers in the bud.

Beautiful, absolutely beautiful.

Now THAT’s patriotism.

I want one in my county and have already sent out the emails to get the conversation started. This could be a great community event.

I wonder if there is any way to put one up on Capitol Hill so that Congress will have to see it every day on the way to work.

I have to believe those who gave the money for this great work are busy protecting it.
And hoping for a few dumbasses trying to defame it.
Shoot their sorry asses.

Hi FRiend, That great billboard message was paid for by the Floridian patriots in northern Florida. We patriots in central and south FL will be looking for ways to spread the message far and wide! We all know that “We The People” can and will vote them out in November!

Hooray for Florida.

I wish one would be placed in this area too...

One as Obama approaches the Space Center on April 15 would make me really happy!

You haven’t missed anything, except perhaps this: they get how mad were are at them, and they are pretty pissed at us, too. In fact, they are so pissed at us they are planning some pretty fun stuff for them to watch. What the hell do you think Healthcare and Cap and Trade are all about. Yeah, they are going to get even with us pretty good.

Lovely. Please note that on the right and the left these days, “We The People” scares the Hell out of them, and it should.
