They're not going to give up on Health Care and neither should we!

Pelosi, Obama and crew are going to do whatever the can to nationalize, socialize, health care and turn us into government dependent drones. PLEASE don't let up! They're still working on this health care, they haven't stopped. They're playing games to lull us into complacency. Don't let up!!! Urge your friends and family to call, write, sign petitions, keep up the fight to save health care, and to save our democracy.

The following is a message from the Conservative Underground on Facebook (links won't work unless you're signed into Facebook. If you're not on Facebook, you can simply delete the facebook portion of the URL and go to the links).

Conservative Underground:

Some of you may have been lulled into a false sense of security because of a brief delay in Nancy Pelosi’s House health care nationalization bill. Don’t be. Talks are back on and Pelosi aims to pass the bill next week or shortly after:


More: http://www.facebook.com/l/;http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=106946745. If Democrats think they can ram this home they obviously have a reason to think it.

This is not the time to let up. The calls and faxes from patriots all across the nation are the only reason this bill has been slowed down in the first place.

The Democratic opposition is rebuilding momentum now because our intensity is flagging. It’s time to get back on the ball immediately.

Do not let your conscience rest knowing that you did nothing during this critical time.

There are patriots in Iraq and Afghanistan enduring unfathomable difficulties on behalf of our freedoms; they fight, they bleed, they return home with missing limbs, they return home paralyzed from the neck down, many of them return home in flag-covered coffins. All you have to do, on the other hand, is make some phone calls.

Here, again, are the things you need to do NOW:

1) Sign this petition: http://www.facebook.com/l/;http://www.freeourhealthcarenow.com/form.php. (Seriously, this is the easiest thing in the world to do.)

2) Call these seven Democrats:

Zack Space (D-Ohio): 1-202-225-6265
Reps. John Barrow (D-Ga.): 1-202-225-2823
Bart Gordon (D-Tenn.): 1-202-225-4231
Baron Hill (D-Ind.): 1-202-225-5315
Jim Matheson (D-Utah): 1-202-225-3011
Charlie Melancon (D-La.): 1-202-225-4031
Mike Ross (D-Ark): 1-202-225-3772


These are the so-called “blue dogs” on the Energy and Commerce Committee. With the right pressure they can stop this from even coming to a vote. Tell them you oppose government-run healthcare and that you know damn good and well that’s exactly what the House bill is. If the congressman isn’t from your district (obviously, all seven can’t be) and you get any crap about calling outside your district then simply explain that this legislation effects everyone, and that you are more than capable of sending campaign contributions to opponents of the aforementioned representatives, regardless of district. Usually, though, you won't get any nonsense about that; the people who answer the phone are used to receiving calls from other states and other districts. Be polite, but be firm! NO NATIONALIZED HEALTH CARE! PERIOD! No “compromise bills” that take us three steps in the wrong direction as opposed to four. No “public option.” No coverage for illegals. None of it. Hands off our health care. End of story. If someone tries to argue with you tell them not to bother; you know what they’re up to and you’re not buying it. If you get an answering machine (and you probably will if you call on the weekend), that’s fine; just leave a message. If you get a busy signal, call back.

3) Call your own representatives. If you want to email and fax them in addition to calling them that’s even better, but BE SURE you call them. That’s the most immediate and effective way to go on record for or against any kind of legislation. Here’s the contact info for Congress: http://www.facebook.com/l/;http://www.house.gov/. If you don’t know who your Congressman is you can find out by looking in the upper left hand corner where it says “Find Your Representative.” Just enter your zip code in the space provided; a link with your representative’s name will pop up. Follow the link and you should be able to find all of your representative’s contact info. Usually there will be either be a “contact” tab that will take you directly to your representative’s contact info or a “services” tab that opens up a drop-down menu that includes a “contact” link.

4) Lastly, SPREAD THE WORD! It’s high time people started to wake up. If there are people you know who don’t have this info and don’t know what’s going on, enlighten them. They must be awakened—rudely, if need be. If you have your own Facebook group, send the info out that way. The media does not get our message out, so it’s up to each of us to be the Paul Reveres of the 21st century.
