Will You Allow Obama’s Destruction Of Liberty Through Forced Collectivism Or Do Something About It?

Fifty-three per cent of the Americans who bothered to cast a vote on Election Day in the presidential contest in 2008 proved themselves to be dullards or collectivists. Were you one of them?

Regardless, will you now stand on the sidelines and allow the evil, know-it-all, arrogant, and foul-mouthed Marxist/Leninist/Progressive/Communist/Democrat cabal now in charge of the U.S. Senate and the executive branch of our federal government to further hamstring our free market capitalist economy? A free market economy based upon our unalienable, God-given rights to the pursuit of happiness? Or will you do something about it?

If you at least want to consider, maybe, just maybe, doing something about it, then go here and at least spend 13 minutes watching the video you will find. Thereafter, read what follows. If you don’t care to lift a finger to do anything about our march to socialism, save yourself some time and rude information and stop reading. Heaven forbid, I would not want to waste your time.

Today I heard Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan on the radio explaining what we are facing from Barack Hussein Obama and those who write the words he reads from his teleprompter screens.

Rep. Ryan said that, historically, since the New Deal, Americans allowed about 20% of their economy to be in the hands of federal government bureaucrats, as depicted on the following chart:

Rep. Ryan went on to explain that since the election of President Obama, he and the Progressives succeeded in raising the share of the control by federal bureaucrats’ over our economy to 25%, as depicted on this chart:

Rep. Ryan went on to explain the ultimate goal of President Obama and the Progressives: make sure at least 40% of the economy gets sucked out of the hands of private Americans who engage in free market capitalistic creative endeavors — their pursuit of happiness — and hand it over to federal bureaucrats, as depicted on this chart:

The real question: What are you going to DO to get us back to the first pie chart?

Just a citizen who believes each conservative American's top priority should be active engagement as a precinct committeeman in the political Party our Founders and Framers would be members of if they were alive now: The Republican Party. I am an American first, a conservative second and a Republican precinct committeeman by necessity to secure the Blessings of Liberty to myself and my posterity.

  1. I’m already doing something, CW.

    [I’ll turn this comment into a blog post soon.]

    I started blogging about politics about 5 years ago, though I’d been a tech blogger for years before that.

    Then, maybe in 2008, I started reading your posts about becoming a Precinct Committeeman. You related your every political comment to the lack of involvement of principled, constitutional conservatives in the party at the precinct level.

    I got tired of it, frankly, and started to tune you out.

    But you persisted, despite people making you the butt of good-natured humor. In August of 2009, because of your constant pressure, I called the chairman of our tiny county’s executive committee, and attended a meeting.

    As an aside, calling the chairman is a story in itself, because i had to track him down — there was no public presence for the party at all. I ended up calling several people before i got the name of a county official whom I sort of thought to be a Republican, and he gave me the number. Not too much work, really, but it required that official to take time from his official duties, log that he was on personal time, and give me the phone number. I’d been a registered voter in the county for 10 years, and had no idea who was in the Party.

    At the first meeting, I was not sworn in as a Precinct Committeeman. It turned out someone else wanted the job. He was an older fellow, but since he’d asked a day ahead of me, they gave it to him.

    As it was time to file petitions to get on the ballot, i told the incumbent that I’d be filing to get on the ballot to challenge him. “No hard feelings,” I said, “but I’m going to run against you. I’m sure you’ll win, because it’s all about name recognition and your family has been here for generations.”

    He decided not to run. Getting the 10 signatures of Republican primary voters was too much work, he said. I got twenty of them one morning, walking around my neighborhood, and got my name on the ballot.

    It turned out that just as all of this was happening in my little world, ColdWarrior was feeling like no one was listening. But without CW’s help, I’d never have set foot outside my door.

    Just when you think no one is listening and you want to give up, that’s when they are all just starting to get it.

  2. A similar, but slightly different story here, Loren.

    Several years back I was a total newbie as to local politics, party politics. Quite by accident I encountered our intrepid ColdWarrior over at that other site and his sheer persistence, his Johnny-One-Note tune finally got under my skin to the point I followed his links, read and learned.

    Specifics were scarce in my area as well, but I finally succeeded in skip-tracing the county chair and set up a meeting with him, a job interview it turns out, for the most important position in party politics.

    When we finally sat down face to face, he was quite stunned that I already had the required paperwork, filled out and ready to go, to get my name on the upcoming ballot. A few simple downloads, guided once again by the irrepressible ColdWarrior, and my unchallenged campaign was up and running. I won by a landslide!

    I actually timed how long it took me to collect the needed 12 or so signatures to get on the ballot; less than 2 hours as I recall, and I never left my own block to do so. Honestly, most of my time was spent answering my neighbor’s questions, What in #$@#$ is a Precinct Committeeman, and why do you want to be one? The position had been vacant for quite some time.

    I was surprised to notice, at my first meeting, being introduced around, that I was one of the younger folks present, and I’ll be 62 in a few days now. So, even the positions that are filled are often held by old-timers and the need for new blood in the ranks is quite evident. So far, I’ve found them to be a very welcoming crew of like minded people, several of whom have a wealth of experience which they’re willing and able to share with the newbies.

    One thing leads to another. Working local events, fairs, meeting and interacting with candidates, attending American Majority training, logging uncountable miles on the old tennis shoes, pounding the pavement, working the phones, the last-minute canvassing from Halloween to Election Day, pressing folks to GOTV; all good fun, hard work but for a wonderful cause.

    Since then, I’ve made many new friends and happily reconnected with some folks who I never suspected were involved in the Republican Party. All because of the dogged, unceasing persistence of the fellow we know as ColdWarrior. Please keep up the drumbeat, never give it up; newbies roll through here constantly, hearing and seeing the message; some, because of the consistent repetition, get off their duff and become voting members of the Party. I did!
