DO NOT GIVE UP! Senate Watch TONIGHT with NATIONWIDE Virtual Vigil

Greetings Patriots,

It is five days before Christmas and it looks as if the Scrooges in DC aren’t packing it up and going home. Instead, they have decided to call Ba-humbug and pass this legislation that 61% of Americans do not support.

This past week, even Howard Dean came out and said it was not good for this country because it is a bailout for big insurance companies. On Thursday, MoveOn.org sent a message to their members that they do not want the legislation passed either and that they should stand with Howard Dean. Just yesterday, Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska, sold his soul to the devil by agreeing to a deal that will benefit his home state.

As you know, they Scrooges in DC don’t seem to care what their constituents want them to do. Instead, they are making these back room deals with Harry Reid so they can get this legislation passed and President Obama can address the nation in January and tell us this was an accomplishment because it is what is good for America. According to Politico, many Senators cut deals for their states in exchange for their vote to pass this legislation.

Friends, we know that this is not good for America! We must not back down and do not ever give up on fighting for our freedom. It is not over!

Yes, it is five days before Christmas, but we will still stand and fight together. There are still things we can do to say NO to this atrocity.

  • Join the Virtual Nationwide Vigil
  • FAX the Senators and tell them NO!
  • Visit your Senators’ local offices.
  • Don’t Give Up on Freedom!

Virtual NATIONWIDE Vigil

Join thousands of Americans tonight as we hold a NATIONWIDE Virtual Vigil on the phone and internet. Since Dirty Harry and his Scrooges have pulled this out of their bag of tricks at the 11th hour, it is impossible for a large group of people to physically gather together. However, we can all stand together through a virtual vigil tonight from 9:00 pm EST until the Senate cloture vote which is scheduled at 1:00 EST. Please take 2 minutes during this vigil to tell us why you are opposed to this legislation. Many Americans will be joining you.

Join us by calling into the conference call line or Click Here to LISTEN LIVE.

Conference call 712.432.3900 code 691338#

Fax the Senators

Continue to FAX Senators telling them you do not want government controlled health care. You can find the fax numbers located here.

Visit Senatorial Local District Offices

If at all possible, please visit with your Senator during the next four days. Please make it a priority to visit one of the local, district offices and deliver a letter telling them you are against a government takeover of health care. A personal visit and handwritten letter carry more weight than any other form of communication with an elected official. We still have time, but we must act within the next four days.

DO NOT Give up on Freedom!

Friends, as I started to write this action alert, I wanted to make sure that we were sending a positive message. I don’t want you to think all we are doing is complaining. We are all mad as hell, but we must stay focused on the end game. We have all worked tirelessly to have our voices heard and yes, we feel like they are not listening. However, they are listening because if they weren’t, this legislation would have been passed months ago. We are making a difference and it make take us a while, but we can take back this country. If you think about where we are right now, we did not get here overnight and we are not going to be able to reverse this step overnight. That doesn’t mean that we are losing, that means we are winning in baby steps. The war is not over and we have to continue to fight these battles.

2010 is right around the corner… 11 days away. That means that we all get to work on turning over some of these seats and voting out the people who do not do what they were hired to do! There is hope!

It is time that WE step up and say loud and clear, WE HIRED YOU! WE CAN FIRE YOU! We need to work with other activists and Patriots across this country to make sure that Dirty Harry Reid and his gang of Scrooges are definitely spending next Christmas and every Christmas thereafter, with their families. 2010 is the year that we can take back our Congress and send these hooligans back to the private sector where they can no longer trample the Constitution and put our freedom into jeopardy. This next year, 2010, is our year, the year of the people!

Looking forward to talking with many American freedom fighters tonight! If there is anything you need, let us know. Stay strong, stay vigilant and don’t ever give up on America! We are all in this together!

Thanks for standing together during this difficult time.

TODAY’S NN&V HEADLINES

  • The Fortunes of Nevada will Rise or Fall without Harry Reid in the Senate (Chuck Muth) – About the only real argument for the re-election of Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nevada, is his position as Senate majority leader. But if that’s all he’s got, he hasn’t got much. No politician in America is indispensable. Or irreplaceable.
  • CANDID CANDIDATE: An e-Interview Ellie Lopez-Bowlan (Nancy Dallas) – Ellie Lopez-Bowlan is running for Assembly District 26 in Washoe County. A Reno nurse practitioner and former Reno Gazette-Journal columnist, Ellie holds a master’s of science degree from the University of Nevada, Reno. She served as President of the Mt. Rose Republican Women.
  • How Are Republicans Going to Win? (Mark Noonan) – Anyone feeling excited about next year’s Senate contest?
  • Action Needed Soon to End U.S. Dependence on Oil (Sean Whaley/Nevada News Bureau) – If the United States does not begin to wean itself from its dependence on oil within the next several years, limited supply and increasing demand by countries like China and India could spell economic disaster, a UNR professor said today.
  • Virgin Galactic’s Latest (Paul Jacob) – It seems like only yesterday that Burt Rutan flew SpaceShip One into near-orbit and received the Ansari X-Prize for piloting the first manned private craft into space.

MUTHS TRUTHS

So I’m reading a full-page ad in today’s Las Vegas Review-Journal for the Better Business Bureau. And the ad says that the “State of Nevada Consumer Affairs office closed its doors on June 30th.”

Really? Who knew? I must have missed a memo.

More importantly, who has missed this government “service”? I’d venture to say….practically nobody.

And get this: With the government operation closed, more and more people will now use the privately-funded Better Business Bureau – which is good for the BBB, consumers and taxpayers. Everybody wins.

Except, of course, the non-essential former employees of the government-run Consumer Affairs office who probably just ended up working in other government jobs at a community college or something.

Makes you wonder what other non-essential government “services” could be eliminated without anyone noticing or caring, huh?

FAMOUS LAST WORDS

“A final vote (on the Senate version of the health care reform bill) is scheduled for Christmas Eve when Americans will be giving and opening gifts to celebrate the gift of a baby – the birth of Jesus Christ. Meanwhile Senator Harry Reid has scheduled a vote for his abortion laden health care reform bill for Christmas Eve. Harry Reid is giving abortions for Christmas.” – Don Nelson, Nevada LIFE, 12/20/09
