I ruined my friends night by explaining some realities – my realities – to him. After an hour on the phone he said, “Now I’m depressed. What are we supposed to do next?”
To begin with, you have to start thinking like they think.
I believe the first thing Obama will do, as I blogged last night and as Rush foretold today, is to push amnesty through. Just like the Stimulus bill, this bill has already been written. I think it was a promise, among many, that he made to those democrat congressmen and women to get their votes on health care. If they can give him health care, then ram amnesty through, they will have a custom built voting bloc and more importantly, Obama will have one in ’12.
I believe that if the right is able to win back the majority, in the House at least, Obama will have something to run against, just as Rush also foretold today. Right now, all Obama has is a rubber stamp on Capital Hill. That’s great to get his social changes in place but when he runs for re-election in ’12 what will he have to run against? Unless we get a really stellar conservative, and Good Lord, I hope we do, he has have the Congress to run against. It’s the Obama way – demonize something or someone. He will demonize the Republican majority in the Congress who held up his “transformation” of America.
But let’s don’t forget, Obama’s done the bulk of his transforming before Novemeber ’10. He had to do it because he knew that after November, he’d no longer have the majority to do it with. He knew this last year. He knew this after the election of ’08 when Democrats were swept in to office with him. He knew that this majority would only last until the next election because he knew that Americans would be outraged at his vision of transformation.
And he was right.
We are outraged.
Within the next few months or year, Justice Stevens will be retiring. That means another liberal Justice on the court. The very court that will be hearing the States cases against the federal government’s unConstitutional health care laws. Another domino that falls on the side of the Marxists. How we overcome this one, I’m not sure. Perhaps repealing the law in Congress will be enough.
But if we don’t start thinking 2 or 3 steps ahead of these people, and prepare for the absolute worst, we will never reclaim this country. Another term of Obama will nail the coffin closed. We should not be depressed. We should put on our game faces and prepare for whatever they throw ahead of us. They cannot be allowed to ruin the nation.
We have Founder’s promises and future generation’s dreams that have to be protected.
Don your helmets and shields, Patriots. It’s time for the real battle.

Given the pressure Republican candidates feel from the extreme right in their party, there is a critical — yet time-sensitive — opportunity for Democratic candidates,” the DSCC writes. “We have a finite window when Republicans candidates will feel susceptible to the extremists in their party. Given the urgent nature of this dynamic, we suggest an aggressive effort to get your opponents on the record.”
The memo urges Democratic candidates to force their opponents to answer a series of questions on health care, taxes and some of the favorite causes of the far right:
“Do you believe that Barack Obama is a U.S. citizen? Do you think the 10th Amendment bars Congress from issuing regulations like minimum health care coverage standards? Do you think programs like Social Security and Medicare represent socialism and should never have been created in the first place? Do you think President Obama is a socialist? Do you think America should return to a gold standard?
If a Republican candidate says no to any of the questions, the memo says Democrats should “make their primary opponent or conservative activists know it. This will cause them to take heat from their primary opponents and could likely provoke a flip-flop, as it already has several times with Mark Kirk in Illinois.”
The first mistake that the Left is making is calling the tea party a far right fringe or extremist group of the Republican party. Tea partiers will argue that point with passion. Tea partiers do not affiliate with any one party. They are not a fringe of anything and calling them extremists will guarantee the political death of anyone who says it.
The next mistake is taking a page out of the Alinsky play book and using our book against us. Asking us to “live up to” a set of questions that they are framing is all about Alinsky’s tactics. That game can be played both ways and the same questions can be turned on the democrats to tag them as the marxists they are.
The last man standing is on the Right
We need to be vigilant. And prepare for what they plan to do. They aren’t going to go down without a bloody fight. But we have to make them bloodier than we get.
