Confessions of a Conservative: I’m a “Dear MoveOn member” and on the MoveOn.org Political Action mailing list.

I forget how I became a “Dear MoveOn member”, but do recall that my reason for joining was to see what they were doing. They send out lots of emails, and were especially busy during the push for Obamacare. When I got an email from them, I would basically do the opposite of what they were asking, e.g. when an email arrived asking me to call or write Rep. Allen Boyd (D-FL2) to show my support for Obamacare, I would call or write my opposition to it.

Yesterday, the following email arrived – What Rep. Boyd voted for:

Dear MoveOn member,

Yesterday, the House of Representatives made history. Even with the bill’s flaws, health care reform is the most important piece of progressive legislation in decades.

Below is a list of ten of the most important things health care reform will accomplish for everyday Americans—none of which would’ve been possible without the dogged efforts of grassroots progressives and the support of Representative Allen Boyd.

But Republicans are already unleashing their spin machine to target Democrats who voted for reform, so we’ve got to show that we’ve got their backs. We’ve set a goal of making 3 thank-you calls from Old Town to Rep. Boyd’s office today—can you join in?

Here’s where to call:

Representative Allen Boyd

Phone: 202-225-5235

The bum just flipped from a NO to a YES vote on Obamacare, and MoveOn.org wants me to thank him for it. I moved to Dixie County, FL last year, and never expected to have another Democrat Representative representing me here…I mean its “DIXIE” County! Rep. Corrine Brown (D-FL3) was my last Representative, and I thought she was bad! At least I knew where she stood on issues.

Well, there was never a chance for me to help defeat Rep. Corrine Brown, since I don’t recall anyone ever running against her while I lived in her district; however, this so-called “Blue Dog” Rep. Allen Boyd is certainly vulnerable!

Rep. Allen Boyd (D-FL2) is now linked with MoveOn.org, and I plan on exposing that link every chance I get…starting here at RedState.com.
