We Need To Do More Than “Repeal” Obamacare, We Need a Plan To Fix Entitlements
I am all for getting rid of the Democrats in 2010, but unless we get 2/3 majority in BOTH houses in 2010, we are stuck with it unless the courts intervene. (How is that for irony: Democrats would get to yell about “Activist Judges”), or we have to wait till 2012. Then we will need a Republican majority in the House, a filibuster-proof Senate and a Republican president.
2010 is an unlikely scenario, unless the economy COMPLETELY TANKS by mid October. Then the chances are still slim. 2012 is more likely, but Republicans MUST do more than say “Repeal It”. Despite what some say, we MUST be more than the party of “No”. We must be the party of ideas and they must be communicated and understood by the general population. That was Reagan’s great skill. He knew how to talk to the American people clearly and concisely but never condescendingly. That is a rare skill, but we MUST find the Republicans who can do it. (Rep. Ryan of Wisconsin shows some potential, but he can get a bit wonkish).
The goal between now and November is, I will admit, one of straight up confrontation with Obama and the Democrats. We must NOT allow them to “bask” in any glory and for once, the GOP needs to play hardball with the press. THEY ARE NOT ON OUR SIDE…. We should make their obfuscation of the real costs of Obamacare an issue and we need to hammer the MSM on this issue tooth and nail.
That means taking on The NY Times, Washington Post and NBC/CBS/ABC/CNN/MSNBC. We need to get the word out that they are much as a problem as the Democrats because they failed to tell or expose the flat out economic double tricks and impossibilities of Obamacare and the crisis of debt we face.
If that means Conservatives quit cooperating with the press, so be it. We have a multitude of communication tools at our disposal and when we talk with the American People, we need to remind them, in no uncertain terms, that the MSM lied to protect Obama and really don’t give damn about flyover country or how bad the “Debt Crisis” is. If Conservatives continue to be “useful idiots” for the MSM in order to make money coming on their shows, then we need to boycott THEM as well.
There is nothing that says you have to cooperate with the MSM press and there is nothing against the GOP and conservatives to start up their own party news organizations. The beauty is we are after votes, not profit.
The first rule of Revolution is to control the message. It is time for some Revolutionary EFFORTS on our part. If you think we have to “Cooperate” with the Press to get our message out, then you never have studied on how to run and win a revolution.
