“If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.” ~Winston Churchill
From the Tea Party Patriots:
In the last 48 hours we have seen the negotiations on the continuing resolution, the ACA/Obamacare, and the debt ceiling deteriorate to the Ruling Class negotiating with the Ruling Class and the American People currently do not have a voice at the table. We are getting no meaningful relief from this unworkable, unaffordable health “care” law. The House and the Senate need to go back to the negotiations to find a way to provide real, meaningful relief to the hard working Americans who are losing their jobs, their hours and wages, their health insurance, and their quality health care because of Obamacare.
Worse than the offers we have seen from Congress in the last 2 days is the behavior of President Obama. As the House offered the President 100% of what he asked for with 1 small string attached, the President refused to budge. The House was willing to give the President a clean Continuing Resolution, a clean debt ceiling increase with the string of making themselves and the Executive Branch live under the President’s namesake, signature legislation. The President refused that offer and showed his true colors: he is unwilling to live by the same laws he seeks to impose on the people, like a petulant child he is unwilling to negotiate at all, and he has the “audacity” to think he can single-handedly write laws from the Oval Office. That is not how our system of government works. All laws are to be applied equally to all people and the President does not have the authority to legislate by press conference and press statements. Congress is elected to represent the will of the people and has a duty, responsibility, and obligation to provide a check to unbalanced power.
Call these people now:
- First and right now, call your Congressman and then after that call both your Senators. Tell DC they need to do their duty and protect the American people from Obamcare and that this is their last chance. Tell each one that they represent you and that you demand meaningful relief from the health care law, which is harming you and people like you across the country because you are bearing the burdens of lost jobs, lost insurance plans, lost access to quality health care. You cannot afford this law and it is morally wrong for them to impose a law on you that the President himself is unwilling to live under and which you simply cannot afford. Thank the very few who have stood for our freedom time after time, vote after vote without compromising their principles and hold the rest accountable. House Directory, Senate Directory
- Call Sen. Mitch McConnell (202-224-2541) and tell him you know he has not had the House of Representative’s back. You realize that some of the bills the House has passed are not to your personal liking and you know the House has been making good faith, bipartisan efforts to open the parts of government where we find agreement. You expect him to do the same and not sacrifice our freedom and health care for his personal position of power.
- Tweet about Park Services to your US Senators and Congressman using #LandOfTheFree and #OpenOurMonuments. Park Services exists to protect our parks not to treat us like subjects under a police state. You are calling for a full investigation into their behavior and will demand those responsible for the police state actions are held accountable. Specifically call on @MarkUdall who is Chairman of National Park Services Committee to let our vets visit and to reopen the 911 Memorial in PA.

Did you know that with your help, over the last two weeks we have connected over 1 million calls into Congressional offices? Keep up the good work!
Fight, while there’s still breath in us.
Stand til we can no longer stand.
