You may remember I had this post last week where i urged people to use the #2010 hashtag to remind people (particularly our legislators) that the lections next year are right around the corner. Unfortunatley, I may have underestimated just how overused the #2010 hashtag truly is, with every possible thing under the sun using the #2010 hashtag.
Then i found this article at Libertarian Republican Blog that’s an excellent read, as well as suggesting a better hashtag:
It’s all over for Obama. Only six months into his first term the economy is tanking into oblivion; tax revenues are falling the fastest since the Great Depression; deficits are rising to record highs never before imagined; Obama’s polls already make him (at this point in any Presidency) one of the most unpopular Presidents in modern history; and the citizens are headed for full scale revolt as Obama ignores this economic Armageddon and throws caution to the wind in order to play out his Socialist experiment- spending trillions more on universal healthcare, cap and trade, and soon…a second stimulus. It’s all coming apart at the seams. Obama has created a citizen revolution.
Obama and his paranoid Socialist minions are compiling an “Enemies List” and they are not even shy about it– they publicly announce they want citizens to send them negative emails and stories about his universal healthcare. Note to Obama: Be sure to add this commentary one to the list. I’m proud to oppose Socialism.
One man, (or woman), can make a difference
I am asked on hundreds of radio talk shows, “What can we do to stop Obama from Socializing America?” The answer is simple. Let your voices be heard. Call radio talk shows. Attend Town Hall meetings with your Congressmen. Write letters to the editor. Hound your elected officials, from the U.S. Senate down to the local dog catcher. Let them know first hand of your outrage. We need protests from those people that work for a living, and create jobs, and build businesses, and pay far more than our fair share of taxes. It’s time to shout, scream, clench our fists in rage, and most importantly, offend. The time for politeness and manners is long since past. This man Obama and his mob of Pelosi, Reid, Dodd, Frank and Rangel are trying to destroy our economy, highjack capitalism, and enslave our children and grandchildren to a lifetime of crushing debt; redistribution of wealth through destructive taxes; a perpetual welfare state; and a Big Brother takeover of every aspect of our lives. It’s time to take action before there is no economy or country to save.
THRO Re-emerges for 2010
In the early and mid-90’s Jack Gargan of Tampa Bay led THRO (Throw the Hypocritical Rascals Out). Gargan took out full-page ads in USA Today urging voters to Vote Against All Incumbents. Many credit Gargan’s efforts with leading to the Term Limits movement and the Republican Revolution of 1994.
The best thing we can all choose to do is to take back power peacefully- through elections. In 2010 and 2012 we can execute a plan to THROW THE RASCALS OUT. And I don’t just mean Obama and the Democrats. Throw them all out. Every single incumbent. Even the Republicans, and the so-called Blue Dog Democrats. They are all guilty. They are all part of the problem. It is through the compromises of “moderate” Republicans and Blue Dog Democrats that big government, big spending and big taxes have been enabled. It was Bush who started this mess- with excessive spending, record-setting growth of government, stimulus plans, and bailouts. Bush and the Republicans enabled Obama. They opened the door to Socialism. Our job as citizens and taxpayers is to vote against every single incumbent politician in the country.
It’s 1776, and 1994 all over again
Let’s send a message heard ’round the world- just like our Founding Fathers in 1776. Let’s start over with a brand new government…with a brand new Congress…with citizen politicians who want to dramatically reduce the size and scope of government…and return power to the people- just as the Constitution demands.
A couple of things here: First, I think #THRO is an excellent hashtag to use — and no, nobody’s using it (I checked.) It’s by no means a threat; it’s a promise to retake Congress by the people, for the people, if these idiots don’t start listening to us.
Second, as Libertarian Republican notes, “we also recognize many Republicans like Sen. Coburn, Sen. DeMint, Reps. Michele Bachmann, Tom McClintock, Ed Royce, Dana Rohrabacher, John Shadegg, Pete Olson, Bill Posey and a few other maverick GOPers most certainly deserve reelection. Thus, our official view here at Libertarian Republican is “Throw all the Democrats and Squishy Republicans Out!”
“Squishy Republicans” +”RINOS” in ACP-speak. I agree completely. There’s a much longer article at the links above — go read it already.
