In his radio show yesterday, Rush Limbaugh called on all Americans to CALL CONGRESS. This is un-Rush-like and while not everyone agrees with Rush, he is a representative of the people – more so than even our Congress!! Here’s a transcript from his show yesterday:
“One of the underlying aspects of the Democrats' Hail Mary pass attempt to push this health care plan through is that if it passes, it's the first time in American history the federal government will force every American to buy something whether you can afford it or not. Now, the Heritage Foundation has been making the point for months: there's no constitutional or judicial precedent for such a power grab. None whatsoever.
If this bill passes, the Constitution's carefully crafted limits on congressional power will have been reduced substantially. It's an all-out assault here. Now, this is not what the Founding Fathers intended -- and this is why, Michael, I'm trying to get as many people (for the second time in history) to call people in Washington and stop this. We're dealing with a transformation of this country unlike anything we've seen before, and certainly not as it was founded. We did not elect people to overthrow the government. We did not elect people to reshape it or to remake it. They are stewards. The Constitution is the Constitution, and it doesn't matter to these people, and it doesn't matter to the people in the media. They don't care. They don't even care what the substance of this is. They're just surprised anybody would oppose it.
"Why, he's a historical president. He's our first black president! Why would you oppose this?"
They look at it from the prism of just a horse race.
"Can Obama get this done? Can Obama win?" Secondly, and almost just as important: "Can Obama beat the Republicans?"
Well, hint, hint! The Republicans can't stop Obama. The American people can, but the Republicans can't. They don't have the votes to stop Obama. This is not about the Republicans! The Founding Fathers intended none of this. Heritage Foundation is on a mission to make sure you know exactly how the Democrats are damaging the bedrock of our system of government.”
Nancy Pelosi and her co-conspirators from the House to the Senate to the White House are looking for every sneaky, under-handed way to pass the largest social welfare bill in history. In simple terms, the Congress of the United States has declared war on the American-way of life and just like the King of England, they are not listening to the people and setting us on a path of great concern for We the People.
We encourage you to DO YOUR PART AND CALL CONGRESS TODAY. Take down the phone lines and burn up the telephone system.

You can use these talking points when you call:
“How is “representative (blank) planning to vote on the healthcare bill? If they say No – thank them!
If they say “undecided” ask why they are undecided. Ask how they could still be undecided when the American people say they do not want this bill?
If they say "Yes" -- Tell them: We are not the enemy here – We are the People. We demand you listen to the American people. We are tired of back room deals, corruption and shenanigans from Congress and the White House. I am, We the People and We the People do NOT want this Trillion Dollar healthcare reform bill. Vote No and do the right thing for America.”
PASS THIS EMAIL TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW AND ENCOURAGE THEM TO BE AN AMERICAN PATRIOT AND FIGHT FOR FREEDOM!
