Sometimes when you make a stand, it is uncomfortable and it may seem like you lose a little in the short term. But what is usually the case, is that you gain in the long term, even if all it is is the satisfaction of doing what is right. Like asserting your constitional rights, acting on principle is always your best play.
That is why I am ready and pushing like a lot of us to defund Obamacare. It is what's right. Will we get it? I don't know. But I am not going to let that stop me. Why, because it is the right thing to do. It is right to go for it now and not wait. This is my gut talking. Whenever you have chance to do what is right you do not hesitate. Again standng for principle is always your best play. We agree that it is right to stop Obamacare right? So, here is a chance to do it? If it fail,s there are other avenues to pursue. I say we do it so we can get used to fighting for a change.
Again, my gut talking, but if we don't fight now, if and when the next opportunity comes around to stop this awful law, it will be the same people who told us this time not go for it, telling us again not to fight. The excuse will always be the same. Not the time to go on offense! We need to be playing "Chess"! YAK Yak Yak! The Dems don't play Chess. All they do is dogpile us because they know they can get away with it. Maybe this effort to defund Obamacare won't work. But you know, it might show the libs that we have some stones. And asserting yourself is empowering. It inspires.
