A Reason for Unity
I received this from a 912 leader in Crawford County, Ohio and repeat it in full:
Re: Republican Dinner Last Night
Just thought I would share with you a little bit of what we heard at last night’s Republican dinner here in Crawford County, Ohio. John Kasich (running for Gov. of Ohio ) was the keynote speaker. Also present were many politicians, most notably, Bob Latta, our U.S. Congressman. Mike and I walked up to Bob and thanked him for his conservative voting record and voiced our concern about what is going on in Washington. He made some funny botox remarks about Pelosi and then agreed with us that we have every reason to be concerned.
As there were others waiting to talk to him, our time was brief. Although what took place later that evening should make chills run up and down everyone’s spine to hear. He had asked to speak a few words at the end of the night and went up on stage. He proceeded to tell the crowd how bad things really are in Washington . He said he only had a few minutes to speak, but if he could tell us even half of what the agenda is and what this administration plans to do to our country we couldn’t sleep at night. He said he only gets about 4 to 4-1/2 hours of sleep a night and worries constantly about what they want to do to this country. He said that Pelosi, Reid and Obama have to be stopped.
He said, “You know, you always hear this is the most important election blah blah blah, but I am telling you people…whatever you have to do to wake people up you need to do! We have got to vote them out in 2010 or with the things they have planned for this country we won’t even be a country by 2020! Ten years. You could see the look of almost desperation on his face.
He talked about the huge debt. He talked about how the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) gets their “figures”. He sits on the finance committee of some sort and listens to the ramblings of Geitner and Bernanke. He said “If you think that the Chinese won’t hold this over us with all our debt you have another thought coming. Our children will have nothing. I don’t care if you have to go out door to door, tell at least 10 people who will then tell 10 people. We have to do this. This is the single most important election ever in the history of this country. The change that Obama promised us is NOT the change people thought he meant.”
We in the Liberty movement have made great advances this year but much remains to be done. Bruising primaries in several places, like here in Colorado, have left us more divided that we should be. Get behind our candidates: raise money, make calls, walk the precincts, donate money. Unmask the cowardly communists who are trying to pass themselves off as not radical. Whatever it takes: the alternative is too terrible to contemplate.
