TPP Tele Town Hall Tonight: Health Care Repeal with Congressman Steve King

The following is taken word for word from a post at  I have reposted it here to inform you both of a great website and a very important meeting.


TPP Tele Town Hall Tonight: Health Care Repeal with Congressman Steve King
(Deadline: 1pm EST)

Good Morning Patriots,

Wednesday will be a historic day in the United States House of Representatives. The Health Care Bill (ObamaCare) will finally come to a repeal vote and while we are expecting it to pass, this is only the first step in the process. Many people in the media and some in the Washington are saying that this is simply a symbolic vote or that it is a mistake for the Republicans to focus on this as their first priority in the 112th Congress; but do you feel like all of the hard work you have committed to the Tea Party movement and to rejecting the government takeover of health care was a mistake? Is the Tea Party movement nothing but a symbolic force in American politics today?

NO! Time and time again over the last two years, we the people have rejected the irresponsible legislation that has been rammed down our throats and there is no time to stop.

Tonight, Tuesday, January 18, 2011 at 8pm EST, Tea Party Patriots will be hosting a Tele Town Hall Meeting to discuss the importance of the Health Care Repeal Vote, the things that citizens can do to ensure its passage, and how we can put pressure on the Senate to bring the bill to the floor for a vote. So far, Congressman Steve King from Iowa, the author of the Repeal legislation has confirmed that he will be on the call and we are awaiting confirmation from one other member of Congress.

They accuse us of only having the ability to protest but we continuously come together to discuss better solutions. They say we are never willing to compromise but maybe the politicians could learn a thing or two from us about not wavering when it comes to principles. So let us stand once again, shoulder to shoulder, let your voices be heard.

Action Items:

1. Sign up for the Tele Town Hall Here (Deadline 1pm EST)

2. Tomorrow, call your Congressmen and ask them how they plan to vote. Tell them how you’d like them to vote and thank them if they are voting the way you want them to. Click here to contact your Congressman.

3. Call your Senators and urge them to bring the bill to a vote in the Senate. Click here to call your Senators.

4. For more ways to participate in creating real policy solutions for our nation, register for the Tea Party Patriots American Policy Summit in Phoenix, AZ on Feb. 25-27th.

Today, I am honored to have received written permission from Lloyd Marcus to re-post a blog that he wrote back in March of 2010.  I encourage you to read it, then go to  and read more words of wisdom from Mr. Marcus.


A Black Man, The Progressive’s Perfect Trojan Horse

Thursday, March 25th, 2010

As millions of my fellow Americans, I am outraged, devastated and extremely angry by the democrat’s unbelievable arrogance and disdain for We The People.  Despite our screaming “no” from the rooftops, they forced Obamacare down our throats.  Please forgive me for using the following crude saying, but it is very appropriate to describe what has happened.  “Don’t urinate on me and tell me it’s raining.”  Democrats say their mission is to give all Americans health care. The democrats are lying.  Signing Obamacare into law against our will and the Constitution is tyranny and step one of their hideous goal of having as many Americans as possible dependent on government, thus controlling our lives and fulfilling Obama’s promise to fundamentally transform America.

I keep asking myself.  How did our government move so far from the normal procedures of getting things done?  Could a white president have so successfully pulled off shredding the Constitution to further his agenda?  I think not.

Ironically, proving America is completely the opposite of the evil racist country they relentlessly accuse her of being, progressives used America’s goodness, guilt and sense of fair play against her.  In their quest to destroy America as we know it, progressives borrowed a brilliant scheme from Greek mythology.  They offered America a modern day Trojan Horse, a beautifully crafted golden shiny new black man as a presidential candidate.  Democrat Joe Biden lorded Obama as the first clean and articulate African American candidate.  Democrat Harry Reid said Obama only uses a black dialect when he wants.

White America relished the opportunity to vote for a black man naively believing they would never suffer the pain of being called racist again.  Black Americans viewed casting their vote for Obama as the ultimate Affirmative Action for America’s sins of the past.

Then there were the entitlement loser voters who said, “I’m votin’ for the black dude who promises to take from those rich SOBs and give to me”.

Just as the deceived Trojans dragged the beautifully crafted Trojan Horse into Troy as a symbol of their victory, deceived Americans embraced the progressive’s young, handsome, articulate and so called moderate black presidential candidate as a symbol of their liberation from accusation of being a racist nation.  Also like the Trojan Horse, Obama was filled with the enemy hiding inside.

Sunday, March 21, 2010, a secret door opened in Obama, the shiny golden black man.  A raging army of democrats charged out.  Without mercy, they began their vicious bloody slaughter of every value, freedom and institution we Americans hold dear; launching the end of America as we know it.

Wielding swords of votes reeking with the putrid odor of back door deals, the democrats
landed a severe death blow to America and individual rights by passing Obamacare.

The mainstream liberal media has been relentlessly badgering the Tea Party movement with accusations of racism.  Because I am a black tea party patriot, I am bombarded with interviewers asking me the same veiled question.  “Why are you siding with these white racists against America’s first African American president?”  I defend my fellow patriots who are white stating, “These patriots do not give a hoot about Obama’s skin color.  They simply love their country and oppose his radical agenda. Obama’s race is not an issue”.

Recently, I have come to believe that perhaps I am wrong about Obama’s race not being an issue.  In reality, Obama’s presidency has everything to do with racism, but not from the Tea Party movement.  Progressives and Obama have exploited his race from the rookie senator’s virtually unchallenged presidential campaign to his unprecedented bullying of America into Obamacare.  Obama’s race trumped all normal media scrutiny of him as a presidential candidate and most recently even the Constitution of the United States.  Obamacare forces all Americans to purchase health care which is clearly unconstitutional.

No white president could get away with boldly and arrogantly thwarting the will of the American people and ignoring laws.  President Clinton tried universal health care.  Bush tried social security reform.  The American people said “no” to both president’s proposals and it was the end of it.  So how can Obama get away with giving the American people the finger?  The answer.  He is black.

The mainstream liberal media continues to portray all who oppose Obama in any way as racist.  Despite a list of failed policies, overreaches into the private sector, violations of the Constitution and planned destructive legislation too numerous to mention in this article, many Americans are still fearful of criticizing our first black president.  Incredible.

My fellow Americans, you must not continue to allow yourselves to be “played” and intimidated by Obama’s race or the historical context of his presidency.  If we are to save America, the greatest nation on the planet, Obama’s progressive agenda must be stopped.

ObamaCare: Really, What’s It All About?

The People Are The Power

I think it is terrible that 50 million Americans are without health care insurance.  Every citizen of the United States deserves the best health care available.  Without health insurance, it is virtually impossible to provide proper care.  So, I don’t understand why the 305-314 million of Americans who do have health insurance can’t chip in a little extra to insure all Americans’ health care concerns are adequately covered.



             The above sentiment has been expressed over and over in the last year or so.  Some are in passionate agreement, while others are in equally passionate opposition.  The most interesting thing, though, is no one really understands the President’s Health Care Bill…not even the President.

             I don’t understand it either, but I am not in favor of ObamaCare.  The reason for my opposition has nothing to do with my desire to see my fellow Americans healthy or unhealthy.  My opposition is based on a simple question: “What’s next?”  Let me explain.

            If ObamaCare is passed to insure all Americans have equal access to health insurance, then what will be next on the list of new Bills to pass that would support and protect all Americans?

             Perhaps we could pass a Bill to provide all Americans with Short and Long Term Disability insurance.  How many American’s have lost everything because of an accident or injury that caused them to be unable to work and draw a paycheck?  There are certainly more people without Disability Insurance than there are with it.

             What about passing a Bill that would provide all Americans with Auto Insurance?  How many times are Americans stuck with a repair bill and medical expenses because the person who hit them did not have insurance?  Or why not buy every person in the United States a car so they can get back and forth to work?

             What about Dental Insurance?  How many people do you see in the course of the day with really ugly teeth, no teeth at all, or incapacitated due to dental pain?  Surely we understand the direct correlation between survival and the ability to eat.

             Can we add Vision Insurance to the list as well?  How can we expect children to receive a quality education without being able to see their school books?  If we cannot provide every child in America with proper eye care, then there will be a whole lot of children left behind.

             How about Life Insurance?  Do you know anyone who has lost a spouse and are suffering because their loved one did not carry enough Life Insurance, if any?

             While we are at it, let’s institute a Homeless Insurance plan.  The Homeless Insurance plan would build or lease homes for anyone in America without a warm place to live.

             So far, we haven’t even discussed the various bail-out programs that have come and gone, are now in place, or are being planned.

             Clearly, this list could go on indefinitely, and rest assured…as it continues, it becomes even more absurd.  When will we finally have enough?  Where will it end?  Brace yourself.  It won’t end.  If allowed, elected officials will continue to come up with new ways to increase the size of our government and increase the dependency of every person living in the United States on the government.

             Perhaps the most troubling fact in all these Bills and Bail-outs is that it isn’t about caring for the sick, feeding the hungry, or housing the homeless.  No, when the agonizing truth is revealed, it’s all about power.  Power!

             Democrats and Republicans are at war for power.  Who controls the vote?  Who gets to decide how to spend the money?  Those that have the power, have the money.  No one really cares about the average tax-payer.  Why should those who have the power be concerned with those who do not?

             Like energy, power is not created.  Power is transferred.  Electricity is energy, and light is energy.  When electricity is applied to a light bulb, it lights up.  There is no new energy here, there is only transferred energy.  In reality, the American people control the majority of the power, but we have been transferring our power to elected officials for so long we’ve forgotten the true source of power.  We are the people.  We are the power!

             Since we are the power, we must exercise our power wisely.  Our own common sense tells us we cannot run our home finances like we allow our elected officials to run our nation’s finances.  If we do, our near future holds a total melt down of our national identity, our national security, and our nation.

             If ObamaCare is finally pushed down our throats, it will only be the first of many things forced down our throats in the future.  Remember this…if we choke too long, we will die and no insurance plan in the world will be able to save us then.
