America is Waking Up !

Finally, we are really getting the momentum started.

We ALL need to attend the Town Hall meetings of our elected official during the summer recess .

We must be civil, respectful and forceful, but most of all we must remain diligent in our efforts.

Whatever we do we must not become violent, just one nutcase will screw the whole thing up.

Here are some vids of past meetings with some elected officials. If you have some others please post.



Arlen Specter is a sphincter and gets his butt handed to him.

Arrogance at it's best from Bishop, what a tool.

It's starting to work and they can't stand the heat......................gotta love it.



TEA Partiers Rattle the Cages of the Political Elite
Written by CHQ Staff on July 31, 2009, 12:27 PM
"There is no point in meeting with my constituents and [to] listen to them and have them listen to you if what is basically an unruly mob prevents you from having an intelligent conversation," Rep. Tim Bishop (D-N.Y.) told POLITICO after making a decision to suspend town hall events that have been frequently swarmed with members of local TEA Party groups.

And, Bishop isn't the only Congressman greeted by a coterie of angry constituents at town hall meetings. According to POLITICO, Democrats (and some Republicans) across the US have been swarmed by what they call "mobs" of seething citizens, furious about these Congressmen's votes in support of key components of Obama's socialist agenda. “The days of you having a town hall meeting where maybe 15 or 20 of your friends show up — they’re over," says National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Pete Sessions (R-Texas).

Democrats are on the defensive despite their attempts to appear welcoming of this new breed of citizen activist. The increasing occurrence of these "town hall protests" has turned a once tame event into a pillory for Obama-associated politicians.

For grassroots activists, this is a positive sign that their efforts are working, and should be continued with all the intensity and passion displayed during the TEA Party protests.

It doesn't take much to put together a town hall protest, but their effects are resounding. The comforting insulation of "going back to the district" has been removed for many Democrats who rely on the distance of constituents from Washington politics. Now, politicians are held accountable at both their D.C. offices and during trips back home.

Already public outcry against Obama's attempt to nationalize the healthcare has ruffled the feathers of liberals in Congress and caused "Blue Dog" Democrats to think twice before going along with their colleagues. As more politicians know that their votes are watched and they can (and will) be held accountable, it could put a wrench in Obama's plans as his coalition crumbles around him.

This trend could present an interesting backdrop for Congress' August recess.

Our rep, Chet Edwards (D), is only going to have one phone meeting. I think he's running away and trying not face his actions. He will not go on Garrett Lewis's radio show (AM 1230) this month. His excuse is he's booked. Because doesn't everybody have something to do between 7 and 8 in the morning while they're on vacation? Hopefully the people that keep electing him are waking up to the fact that he votes with the Dems 96% of the time. I can't believe he's one of the most senior members of the House. He's a complete tool.

If the people in your District don't throw him out on his ear this time, then there is just no hope for them.

He's more than a tool...................

I heard the Republicans have someone they think will have a good chance at beating him next election. He's my rep too so I'm crossing my fingers.

They need to. The Republicans haven't really tried and can't get a following since I've been voting. Hopefully 2010 will be different.

I thought he acutally had a chance. Then no money was spent to counter the Dems ads against him. I think the one claiming he wanted to raise all sales tax 30% is what did him in. All he had to do was explain that he was for the Fair Tax. I remember being mad because there was no counter. Just seems like they didn't want or have the money to spend.

Yeah, what was up with that? It was like it was a forgone conclusion that he was going to lose so they weren't "wasting" money on him.

I am still for BlowOutCongress.com - Taking Our Country Back One Incumbent at a Time They all have to go. This is one time when it is ok to throw the baby out with the bath water. Republican, democrat, it makes no difference they all have to go...............And for the record this last time I did not vote straight party. I voted against the incumbent.

Out with them all, send them home and let THEM EAT CAKE!.
