Inaction, Lack Of Committed Effort, And Poor Results Will Not Be Tolerated

We can accept nothing but 100% effort on our behalf from the 112th Congress. To that end I have sent the folowing letter to Mitch McConnell, Jim DeMint, Marco Rubio, John Boehner, Bill Posey and Allan West. I hope you will take the time to contact your Senators and Representatives outlining your expectations, and a timetable for the same. Do not believe a word of "we aren't about bigger government, we were in crisis, we were working underemergency circumstances." That's the new mantra out today. Beware, and be very, very weary.

Dear Senator McConnell,

As evidenced on Tuesday, there are millions upon millions of Americans who will not accept politics as usual in America any longer. Unfortunately, I have already heard some talk that the position that Republicans are taking relative to the issue of repealing Obamacare is disingenuous. I’m hearing there may be no desire or intent to take that action. While I understand that President Obama has veto power over that issue, and it will be difficult to accomplish, I also understand that there are a number of Democrats (and perhaps RINO’s) who will be seeking re-election to the Senate in 2012. The American people will help to put pressure on them to vote for repeal provided you make those names available to us. While I have the time to look that information up, others may not. How sincere are you in wanting to play hardball to fix America? IF you are sincere, you will out ALL those who will not vote for repeal. It’s that simple.

The 112th Congress has a superbly unique opportunity to accomplish some outstanding, truly historical, actions to preserve American Liberty. That opportunity has been given to Congress by the voting will of the American public. As you are a Republican, although I do not know expressly, I am hoping that you truly want that for our country as well.

So let me be clear. Should the Republican House fail to defund Obamacare on day one of the 112th Congressional session, and should the Senate fail to repeal what can be repealed, prevent intrusion of government healthcare into society through "deals" on other bills, and then not repeal it in it's entirety by 2012 when a Constitution-Oriented President will be elected, then what happened last Tuesday will look tame compared to who we fire in 2012 and then 2014 if necessary! The SOLE message you should get out of Tuesday’s results is this: SMALLER GOVERNMENT!!

That will cure many of the ills facing America, whether you are willing to admit it or not. So help us get government out of our lives! Repeal acts/legislation/executive orders that intrude into them. Don’t support new ones that are introduced! Create a plan, and begin the process to dissolve Agencies and Departments that were created by the government over the past 80 years, but which they had no Constitutional authority to create! I am sending this letter to John Boehner as well, although I have already written to him once. And to Jim DeMint, though I have already written to him as well.

I expect you are getting many emails from the American people. And I’m sure that will continue over the next two years. Your ability to act on behalf of the American people will largely determine the tone of those emails. You, and the Republican majority in the House, have your work cut out for you. You have many, many unpopular decisions to make, and actions to take. To be successful, you will need to affectively communicate the reasons for those actions so that even those affected can understand the logic behind them. And although they may not be popular or liked, they will be accepted. We have no choice. The government has not served us well; in fact they have done us a great disservice! Your Congress – the 112th – has been chosen to right those wrongs. History will ultimately judge how well you do, but We The People will also be judging. Communicate well, and start the process today!
