The wailing and gnashing of teeth must now end. It’s time to move forward. In my previous post, I gave San Francisco Bay Area residents information about the upcoming April 15 Tea Party. I’m also collecting posts from far and wide telling us that, contrary to the Democrats’ deep desires, this egg can be unscrambled. We don’t have to collapse fainting on the couch as if it is all over, forever. America’s commitment to freedom and individualism allowed her to recover from a the Civil War, Wilson’s Progressive policies, the Great Depression, and Carter. We did it before and we can do it again. With that in mind, and if you’re looking for inspiration and practical advice, read (and listen to) the following:
Kim Priestap, the Up North Mommy: Today we fight.
John Hawkins, at Right Wing News: The Hawkins Strategy: Repealing Obamacare By Cutting Off The Funds
William Jacobson, at Legal Insurrection: Pep Talk (h/t Lulu)
William Kristol, at the Weekly Standard: Special Editorial — Repeal
Bill Whittle, at Pajamas Media: Health Care — The sleeper has awakened
Bill Bennett, at the Corner: We will show them in November what liberty means
Send your links of inspiring words and practical suggestions, and I’ll update this during the day.
Melissa Clouthier on the fact that concerned citizens are speaking with their checkbooks (which, for better or worse, is one of the best ways to make ones voice heard)
And the Anchoress reminds us that anger is just fuel; it doesn’t actually do anything. We need to be greater than just demonstrating the type of wild derangement that the Bush haters manufactured for so many years.
Doug Ross found someone who has seen it all before and warned against it a long time ago. (H/t Sadie)
Here’s a second helping from Kim Priestap, who’s appropriately ticked off by the fact that the party apparatchiks exempted themselves from this health care farce.
