Excellent Post!

What if we invade the GOP and take it over? We could start with local politics, beginning with precinct chairman, and move up from there. We would then have the ability to influence what candidates are picked to run, and hopefully change the direction of the Party. We could become the Grassroots for Conservatives.

This is my plan. First goal is to be involved with local elections to help make sure they are honest. I just hope it will not be too late!

I have just read a piece by Jeffrey Lord, former Reagan White House Political Director, regarding a conspiracy to recruit churches to petition the FCC to open up a legal inquiry into hate speech in the media, specifically against Fox News and Conservative Talk Radio, particularly naming Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and others.

The most shocking part is that the main instigators are former FCC Commissioner Copps, the new FCC Commissioner Genachowski, and the White House!

This campaign involves at least seven major religious denominations, with millions of parishioners.

Everyone needs to read this:

I believe the ultimate purpose is to use Localism and the hate crimes law to indict Conservative media, with the purpose of removing licenses, or at least the above named commentators. The FCC already has all the elements in place to do this. If they succeed, Free Speech and The Republic are lost!

Thursday, October 22, the FCC will decide on whether “Net Neutrality” rules will guide the new regulations they are proposing for the internet. This is yet another grab for power, and this one is serious because it opens the door to censorship of the internet. I think we need to flood the FCC with comments opposing it.

Following is a copy of a letter I sent to the FCC’s new “Join the Discussion” site at:

Net Neutrality will result in slowing the internet down for everyone by making the use of Broadband extremely inefficient. It will stifle innovation because new enterprises will not be willing to invest in new applications when they will not be able to recoup their investment.

The following quotes are from an article by Steven Titch, a Political Analyst, from the Reason Foundation:

"An unmanaged Internet, consumed by an exaflood, endangers the ease of which smaller Web publishers, bloggers and merchants can reach users."

"The network neutrality issue has dwindled to a political agenda supported by a handful of vocal advocates at Moveon.org and Freepress.org. And while these groups may have good intentions behind their support for Internet regulation, the neutrality rules they favor will not result in what they hope for. Quite the contrary, they will lead to higher broadband prices, mediocre service and cede a lot of market power to one segment of the market. In this, network neutrality is no different from many of the radical new regulatory programs the Obama administration is introducing to the American economy, be it banking, insurance, auto manufacturing, health care or alternative energy—they allow a select group of favored companies to privatize the gains and socialize the costs. Such programs don’t encourage competition, job growth and entrepreneurship, they impede it."

Implementing "net neutrality" will destroy choice of services, and increase costs to the public because of the inefficiency and rules against banning the business practice of “Levying surcharges on content providers that are not their retail customers”. Consumers would have to pay full service rates for small and limited applications.

"Net Neutrality" is about government control and special interests. The American people know this, and will express their displeasure at the polls if it is implemented.

Hi Daezy,

I agree with you in general. However, if Conservative protesters do not shout, they are ignored. 3000 people show up at a Tea Party, and the papers report 300. We write hundreds of letters to our Representatives and Senators, and.......nothing. We attend a Town Hall meeting, and are cut off when we try to speak. Much of the shouting and unruliness is sheer frustration!

I, myself, would welcome ideas for how we can make ourselves heard, and our concerns recognized while remaining civil and respectful.

Excellent idea! My husband and I will take your advice, at the next Tea Party we attend.

Earlier today I posted a link to the whole 1017 page House Health Care Draft bill. Unfortunately, the site immediately decided to change their posting. Here is a direct link to the bill:
