Skip to comments.Now what do we do? (only method that can stop Obama train dead in its tracks)
Posted on 11/10/2012 4:12:01 PM PST by Perseverando
With Barack Obama re-elected to the White House for four more years, half the country is wondering what we can do to limit the damage.
I actually have an answer.
In January 2011, after Republicans took over the House, I launched a campaign that now appears to be our only hope of killing off Obamacare, making Obamas lame-duck second term a nightmare (for him, that is) and actually moving Washington toward a return to limited, constitutional government.
And all it takes to do it is the cooperation of the House Republican majority.
After Republicans took control of the House in 2010, I began thinking about what a party with control of only one house could do to challenge the president and the other house of Congress. It turns out theres something very profound that party can do if it has the will.
Thats where the people come in the 50 percent of the country that rejected Obama and understands what a danger his agenda represents to Americas future.
My plan has been around ever since. Its called the No More Red Ink campaign and its quite simple. Theres no point in writing to your congressman if he or she is a Democrat. You are not going to convince any Democrats to buck the Obama tide. Thats obvious. But, if the other 50 percenters were to join the No More Red Ink campaign in lobbying just House Republicans to disapprove of any hike in the debt limit, Obama and Senate Democrats would be hamstrung in implementing Obamacare. It would spell the end to many other outrageous spending programs. It would force $1 trillion cuts in Washingtons annual spending. It would eliminate Planned Parenthood funding, the Department of Education, the National Endowment for the Arts, PBS and NPR

What’s wrong with secession or moving to Texas?
That's about all I could come up with. LOL.
A while back (couple years) me and some friends started a "co-op". We trade goods and services based on talents and assets. Just a small group of friends "helping" each other. There is only a dozen of us but we are growing.
Don’t forget about your going Galt activities:
I cut my Comcast today (Comcast is a major Obama supporter); that’s roughly $1,700 per year less for Comcast. Imagine if a third or half of their subscriber base were to cut the cord, that’s a $15 billion hit to their bottom line.
NOT A THING! If Texas (and hopefully CA) starts getting serious about secession, I'll be using my daughter as an anchor baby and moving back there. She was born in Austin.
Start reading books on the French, German and Russian underground.
Oklahoma NOT CA. Sorry.
We should also start learning to speak Spanish and Manderin.
All well and good except that the spineless Repubs will cave yet again.
Right off the top I would suggest that FReepers man the hell up and lean on congress hard. One of the first orders of business is to get Johnny the Jellyfish out of there and put a conservative in the speaker’s position.
Too old to learn much. Teach them 308
¡Si, Se Puede!
Great article. Gimics for Cash from the Galactically Stupid are already abounding. Eventually, when we recover from our politically induced shock, we are going to realize God’s own Hand in this tragedy, and look to Him rather than ourselves and upon the affairs of men.
But, if you are devout, then moving to Texas and Oklahoma is not a bad idea.
Freepers used to be great for money bombs but I haven’t seen one in a while.
We have to take back this country one battle at a time. Could we do a money bomb for Allen West?
Two of my kids were born in Texas, and four in Oklahoma ;-). If the TX-OK-LA OilState gets going, we’ll be immigrants. My husband is a TechnoMage, and I speak Spanish!
Win super majorities in 2014 in the Senate and House I am so sick over this surely there is something we can do to stop the liberal agenda We need to write and call our Congressmen and Senators and let them know that we will hold them accountable for it if there is an onslaught of liberal bills being passed. We can protest and the number one thing and most important is prayer.
“One of the first orders of business is to get Johnny the Jellyfish out of there and put a conservative in the speakers position.”
I second that emotion. Never get anything our way with that sucker as Speaker. He’s too Chickensh—t!
I would like to see Eric Cantor as the Speaker of the House
Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Arizona to start.
Arizona isn’t contiguous.
Eric Cantor has been Boenher’s butt boy since he became the SPeaker. We need a true conservative - one with some guts like Allen West. However, as usual, the RINOs just take the next in line or those who have been in DC so long we can’t tell the difference between them and the Demonrats.
I was thinking today that OK and TX need to patch up their long rivalry. THey have more in common.
Mayeb bring along La., Alabama and Missippi too.
The Gulf States of America.
Re: Start reading books on the French, German and Russian underground.
Also you may want to have your adult family watch some of the WWII movies on Netflix. There are several decent ones particularly foreign ones dealing with the resistance to the Nazis by the civilian populace. And of course let’s not forget the evils of communism and those trying to survive the soul stealing enslavement required to live in the hell created by “socialists.”
Finally, don’t forget the persecution of Christians around the world and their struggle to just survive and practice their faith in communist or muslim third world nations.
New Mexico is full of crazies. Maybe the whole state could be made a recreational park ;-).
We don’t have a hope in Hell against Santa Claus passing out free money. Does anyone really think they defeat “Here, have some free money but vote Democrat to get it”?
I’m no fan of Joseph Farah or wnd but I like this plan. This plan also needs prayer behind it. It is God’s people that causes Him to heal a nation. A humbled people. A turning away from wicked ways. That, has to happen. It may be we as a nation will suffer before people are ready to acknowledge Him in all their ways.
I'm betting on Arabic.
Here's one place to start....
I’ve already got one down - just one to go.
Then, leave town.
The message to Harry Reid would be that the House will not reconvene nor take any action until such time as the U.S. Senate addresses the proposed FY 2014 budget and passes it, as amended, for review by a Conference Committee. And Harry vows to honor the decision of the Conference Committee.
In its defense, the House should cite the Constitution: The Congress must pass a budget annually.
As it is, our "budgets" are the previous year's budget, plus Porkulus, plus 6-7% "inflation".
This process must cease. And, explained in terms of the Constitutional requirements, 50% of the people would understand their actions...and cheer their efforts.
Constitutional Convention. Talk to your state representatives.
Economic insurrection through boycotts and reduction in household spending. Save Money, you should be anyway.
Repeal provisions of the 17th amendment that limit the selection of a State Senator through election .... let the State legislature and Governor appoint Senators if they choose to.
Campaign finance reform ... All politicians running for office can only solicit and except campaign donations from entities within their districts or state — and it’s their responsibility to ensure that donations are legal.
My congressman is a member and I sent a message out today to remind him that we still hold the majority in the house and asked that he support replacing Bohener as speaker.
#1. Replace Boehner as speaker
#2. 2014 Senatorial races - take the Senate
But most importantly, what we really need to do is organize a massive nation-wide campaign to promote, educate, and convert people to Conservatism. The schools, media, and families aren’t getting the job done and this election proves “we” are in the minority. Hoping people listen to Rush isn’t going to fix that, we need an effort that is is as powerful and determined to this goal as the combined efforts of the MSM plus Pop Culture plus Unionized Teachers plus Democrat party propaganda machine are on the other side.
Also, I doubt the Obama administration would stop spending anyway. He's ruled by EO since '10 with no one challenging him - I suspect he'd keep writing checks and dare someone to stop him.
I can’t argue with that but the liberals hate him of course they hate everybody who doesn’t cowtail to them. Who do you think would be best? We really do need a true conservative but I am still shell shocked by Tuesday night and can’t think of anyone.
I made calls to mine (who is NOT on the list, but is R) and about 6 on the TPC list, on Friday. Boehner MUST go - enough is enough of this clown.
Remove Boehner, cut funding for the criminal Justice Dept and State Dept until they honor subpoenas for a start..
Get your butts no the next state convention and replace your RNC committeemen. It often only takes a few hundred dedicated people to do it.
In Michigan there were only some 1500 votes cast at the state convention but tea partiers joined with GOP conservatives and even Paul voters and removed uber RINO Saul Anuzis from his national committee chair and replaced him with conservative, Dave Agema.
I know FreedomWorks has a system in place to get down to the grassroots level of organizing.
There is no stopping the Communist takeover, it's done.
I totally agree. Stop standing around being targets for the dhimmicrat blame machine.
Every Oklahoma county voted red....that’s where I’m moving.
I’m going to look at land in OK in January.
Yes, mam. Yea!
