ObamaCare: No, No, No, and No Conferees, Either!

Our mush-brained, money-grubbing, noodle-spined, socialist Democrat senators oppressors have co-opted America's votes and trust to jam ObamaCare down our throats. They planned to keep our objections to a minimum by timing their vote to coincide with our holiday preparations: welcoming family and friends, wrapping presents, decorating trees, baking cookies, traveling to visit loved ones, attending worship services. Of course you and I are very, very busy, but not too busy for one more phone call, or, in Nebraska, one more visit to Nelson's office.

Over at RedState, Dan Perrin has come up with a real plan, an informed plan, a ray of hope that involves Republicans objecting to the conferees who will be slicing and dicing the ObamaCare bill in conference to make it as objectionable as possible. I suggest you give it a read. Considering that our country's future and our individual destinies are at stake, if you have a Republican senator, it isn't too much to insist that he or she object to the conferees. Imagine how difficult it will be for the oppressors to conduct their dirty business in full view of the American people.

If we can stop this outrageous bill, we'll be reclaiming a huge amount of future time spent waiting in hopelessly long lines, filling out reams of ridiculous paperwork, struggling to undo errors in the government's computer system, traveling long distances for routine procedures, and lying awake at night sick with the knowledge that someone dear to us is suffering needlessly because he or she used to be able to get much better care. Been there, done that.

And that's just on the health care side. If we can stop this outrageous transgression against us, we will also conserve trillions of our hard earned dollars, plus the dollars our children and grandchildren haven't even had a chance to earn yet. And save several important pieces of the Constitution of the United States. Also send an effective message to the oppressors that the American people don't intend to have their tax money used as bribes to pay off politicians.

We've come a long way from the time when ObamaCare was supposed to be a shoo-in, we weren't supposed to be watching, and we weren't supposed to be attending town hall meetings, never mind read 1,000+ page bills, analyze them, and speak out. But we did watch, and we did read, and we did show up, and we did make ourselves heard. We pushed. We were ignored, but we didn't give up.

We need to keep pushing. Not quite sure opposing this bill is worth your time? Read why Professor Jacobson thinks this is "the political fight of our lives for the future of the country."

(Update: The Wall Street Journal has pointed out that "even in WWI there was a Christmas truce." Congress won't even give us that. And they pretend to represent us? And have our welfare at heart! There's some real humbug for you.)

Don't forget to mention how much effort you'll put in to make sure that they'll never be re-elected if they vote for ObamaCare. A few ideas on that topic at Gateway Pundit (and thanks, Jim Hoft et al. for the Claire, Obama's Joker image).

Here's a little theme music to listen to while you dial that number:
