Stand firm, so say we all…

Why should we remain true to the passions and the sacrifice of our fathers and
those that came before?

 

Received an email (may not be the opinion of the owners of this website) (it may be too but hey thats what it is all about right)

This may be one of the most important issues facing America for the last 50 years and for sure when it comes time to vote we better show up at the polls, take the day off from work do what ever you have to do to make sure that we all vote.

Today, Obama is telling liberals to be prepared because he has no choice but to get the debt ceiling raised.  Obama reached out to his base with a townhall in Maryland and on NPR to let them know that the unwavering Republicans have left him little choice.  The Senate may have narrowly defeated Cut, Cap and Balance but after the President’s remarks today, it seems that we are on the verge of winning major concessions on spending without having to give on tax increases.  Our collective vigilance is the only reason that the Republican Congress has not caved.  They have heard our voice but we cannot let up now!

Together, we have contacted Congress more than 100,000 times through letters and emails demanding that they do not raise the debt ceiling without addressing the underlying spending problem.

Today, it is more important than ever to make sure that they hear from you again!  We made an incredible investment to make it quick, easy, and free to contact your elected representatives in Washington.  You are NOT required to make a contribution in order to use the petition software, but a generous contribution will allow us to provide this service to other like-minded Americans.
 
MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD: 

DON’T RAISE THE DEBT CEILING WITHOUT ADDRESSING THE UNDERLYING SPENDING PROBLEM!

Debt ceiling madness

It may seem hard to understand or even to believe.
However we are facing a real crisis and this one has been coming for a long long time.

Debt limit: More of the same?

Tell Washington NO!
Sign the petition: Any proposal must cut spending now and fix the budget process.

Dear Fellow Conservative,

Since the Spring, Washington has been abuzz with debt limit deadlines and rumored deals. But instead of actually solving our spending-induced debt crisis, Washington is delivering more of the same: secretive deals, gimmicks, and tax increases.

Do you want more of the same?

No! Cut spending now and fix the budget process.

Our children and grandchildren deserve a real proposal that cuts spending to squarely address our enormous debt.

Tell Washington: no more business as usual.

Are you with us? Sign the petition.

More hope and more change or just the same old thing?

For 50 years, the Democrats have been telling the old folks, you know senior citizens that one day the Evil Republicans would one day cut their social security checks, but guess what it has happened two times and the democrats were in the White house, not the republicans.

Do not fall for the same old lies the democrats have been telling you for 50 years, its time you knew the truth the democrats are the ones to fear…

We are not the ignorant unwashed masses of the past, we are as smart and as educated as anyone, yet those that “think” in their own minds that they are someone more intelligent and can only figure out what no one else can figure out. It is interesting to watch some of these people who think that they are smarter than anyone, but in the end is not human nature not far removed from what it was at the beginning?

Received this by email, published in its entirety.

How long will people believe that this is what they voted for?

Remember when Lucy would tell Charlie Brown that she would not pull back the football and he would believe it every time, and right at the last moment she would pull that football back and you just knew that Charlie Brown was not that stupid, you know, that Charlie would wake up and figure it out.

The funny thing is this, That was back in the 1970s and perhaps most people were really that dumb or at least the liberals liked to think they were so much smarter than anyone else.

So really, you know what, when we voted in 2008 for hope and change this is not what we voted for and you know what else the liberals in Washington know it too. But they think your too stupid to figure it out, they think that your like Charlie Brown that they can tell you what you want to hear and then at the last minute yank that football back but you know that was so 1970 and things change people are no longer as dumb as Charlie Brown.

Is this the hope and the change you wanted, Tax the Rich but not GE?

Just minutes ago, President Obama delivered what was billed as his “new” vision on the budget. But, watching it I realized his speech was the same old big government path of higher spending, more debt, and massive tax increases. If President Obama wants us to believe he now wants to reduce deficits just 2 months after submitting a budget with red ink as far as the eye can see, then he should propose a new and complete formal budget.

Instead, like his friends on the Left, Obama has launched a full-throated attack on leaders like Congressman Paul Ryan who stand for real budget reform and genuine spending cuts.

Meanwhile, the House Budget Committee led by Chairman Ryan is expected to put a budget bill on the floor of the House for a full vote most likely this Friday afternoon.

Please CLICK HERE to tell your member of Congress to vote to CUT SPENDING NOW by supporting both the Ryan budget and the Republican Study Committee budget.

Neither budget is perfect; for example the Death Tax is not fully repealed in either plan. But, both budgets put our nation on a path toward economic prosperity and genuinely smaller government. That’s why the Left is attacking them so viciously.

Key provisions in Chairman Ryan’s Budget Proposal Include:

* Cuts $6.2 trillion of government spending
* Collects $1.8 trillion less in taxes
* Cuts $4.4 trillion from the national debt compared to the President’s budget over
* the next ten years
* Dramatic overhaul of Medicare which is heading toward bankruptcy while sticking our seniors with fewer and fewer medical options
* Defunds ObamaCare, saving $677 billion over ten years

Key provisions in the Republican Study Committee’s Proposal Include:

* Cuts over $9 trillion in spending over the next decade
* Makes the deepest cuts to discretionary spending of any detailed
House budget plan out there
* Balances the budget by the year 2020
* Defunds ObamaCare, saving $677 billion over ten years

Both Chairman Ryan’s and the RSC’s budget proposal include Medicaid reform. Under these proposals, Medicaid funds will be block-granted to the states, which are then responsible for structuring their own programs and tailoring them to their particular needs.

Still wondering if we’re making a difference for our values?

It is clear we have dramatically changed the policy debate in our country. A majority of our fellow citizens now agree with us that government spending is too high and the massive budget deficits threaten our economic prosperity. And, do you think President Obama would even be talking about cutting the budget if it were not for us?!

But frankly, it is much harder to pass good legislation than it is to oppose bad bills. That’s why it is crucial for you to get involved now in this budget battle.

CLICK HERE to tell your member of Congress to CUT SPENDING NOW by voting YES on the Ryan budget and the Republican Study Committee budget.

By the way, this Friday, the day when we expect the vote by the full House of Representatives on the budget blueprint for our nation, is April 15 – tax day.

What a great day to send a message that we’re through with the job-killing, prosperity-draining, big government agenda that has for so long animated politics in Washington!

Sincerely,

Tim

PS: Last week during our rally at the Capitol an elderly man from eastern Pennsylvania came up and shook my hand. He was wearing a Pittsburgh Steelers baseball cap and man do I hate the Steelers and he had his grandson with him. His grandson looked about my daughter’s age. He said “Tim, I still believe in my country. I still believe my grandson will live in a better, stronger place where he can be anything he wants to be.” That grandfather who took a day away from home to bring his son’s son to Washington said it better than I ever could.

Let’s keep doing our part to make it so. Click here to tell your member of Congress to CUT SPENDING NOW!
