We need as many signatures as possible on a petition to transfer the cost of Medicaid from the counties to the State, who buries us under impossible mandates, ASAP.
We have created an on-line petition here.
Please share it with EVERYONE, not just your fellow Reformers!! Your one signature is appreciated, but what is really needed, is for you to strap your boots on, and email it to as many New Yorkers as you can. The deadline is February 23rd.
The petition has been updated with a note about the Opt-Out Plan, and a link to NYSAC’s explanation, who is the originator of the petition.
There are only 82 signatures on it as of now — but I think it’s because people are not sharing it, or they’ve stopped. On the petition itself, it allows you to really easily share it on Facebook — but it caps you at about a dozen. Then you can do it again the next day, and every day thereafter. We Got People! ..around the State — let’s put a push on!
If you’re really feeling energetic, you can print up hard copies and take them to work, or do as Ellie did and get 50 signatures by standing in the Mall! You can download it here. Please gather as many as you can, from anywhere in the State, and get them to Ellie Corcoran by February 23rd. Contact her for her mailing address at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Without you, the status quo reigns
A Message from Rus Thompson:
There comes a time when all of us have to take a stand and the time is now. For a couple years now, we have been talking about the Elections of 2012, how finally we will have our chance to influence the political process and get our candidate, not the “party” candidate to run for President. Well the Party, the status quo, the political elite are pushing Rino Romney on us and only with the TEA Party help will we be able to finally fend them off and get our candidate to go one- on- one with the absolute worst president this country has ever seen.
There are only 4 candidates left in the primary and it is time for New Yorkers to pick one and ride them to victory in the NY Primary that is being held April 24th so we have to build a infrastructure here, now in New York. During the Paladino for Governor campaign we made history. Never before had a grassroots movement totally destroyed the Party choice, never. We can do it when we put our heads together and work in unison as we did for the Republican Primary two years ago. You showed it can be done. We need to show them that we still have it here in NY.
Carl Paladino and I have decided to join the Newt campaign. We feel Newt is the only real chance we have to defeat Obama and the status quo in the republican hierarchy. We are asking that you join us and help us build the grassroots, TEA Party momentum to help Newt win here in New York State. If you’re with us, please respond and join us. If you are uncommitted, please consider getting behind Newt and join us. If you’re a leader of a TEA Party, ask your group… who supports who… and help us build an organization to defeat the status quo candidate Romney in NY.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Thanks for all you’re doing. Without you, the status quo reigns.
Have we been Rick Rolled?
Check this out, on YouTube. Rick Santorum suggesting the Tea Party has “re-fashioned” conservatism, and committing to vocally and publicly oppose it. True conservatives are just so few and far between.
Feel free to send Rick a note, to email@example.com, as I did:
I thought I was most closely aligned with you, largely because of your socially conservative values — but for the life of me I can’t understand why you didn’t seem to fully grasp the gravity of the debt limit, and how essential it is to scale back — which, among other things, renders your fiscal conservatism null and void. And then to learn of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irxKyVmprBc&feature=player_embedded is just disappointing, and I have to wonder why you are asking for our help.
We are not “re-fashioning” conservatism. We are trying, with great difficulty, to restore it.
Has there been a retraction to this statement?
P.S. I just now heard him on the radio giving deference to conservatives and Tea Party folks…
Judgment is upon us
The politicians who quoted Isaiah 9:10 after the 9/11 terror attacks probably meant it as encouragement. But the new book “The Harbinger: The Ancient Mystery That Holds the Secret of America’s Future” explains that the verse actually is a statement of defiance to God — a nation essentially thumbing its nose at the Almighty… [In the aftermath of 9-11, Tom Daschle] thinks he’s offering comforting words to a grief-stricken people, but he is actually embracing the spiritually defiant and arrogant words of the children of Israel, proclaiming the ancient and ominous vow of the leaders of that nation. He doesn’t realize it, but he is actually inviting more judgment on the nation.
It might be of some significance that Daschle, one of the most powerful men in the nation when he spoke those words, later fell into disgrace – to the point where he couldn’t even serve in Barack Obama’s cabinet.”
Then on the third anniversary of 9-11, VP nominee John Edwards makes the same mistake. Read about it here,
