1A. Defund the czars.
I'm already hearing the word "compromise" from the GOP....when are these knuckleheads going to start to listen?
On item #7, do not fall into the trap engineered by the Clinton machine and allow all White House investigations to go through a single prosecutor. The Clintons masterfully turned Ken Starr into the bogeyman by convincing congress to add subsequent investigations to his plate and then portraying him in the media as a right-wing zealot, effectively marginalizing him. That would be difficult to do with 10, 20 or 30 independent investigators / prosecutors all looking into seperate issues and could in fact be turned around on those who try.
This isn’t difficult. The Democrats could have held their own if they’d have governed in the traditional way, not the Chicago way. There are a lot of people in the squishy middle who wanted to like Obama and the Dems.
Obama promised with the stimulus, unemployment would stay at 8% or below. - Fail!
Obama, Pelosi, and Reid jammed through an unread healthcare reform as a spending bill, not a traditional reform. The premise for passage was unethical, and wrong, per revised CBO estimates. Nearly 70% of Americans were against the measure. - Fail!
Obama and Holder sued Arizona for defending it’s borders without offering alternatives. Nearly 70% of Americans supported Arizona. - Fail!
Govern against the people’s will, and lie... even the squishy middle won’t tolerate that.
On the state level we need to create environments where business can thrive and we need to fix our election systems and root out the fraud.
Your damn right it’s the economy and the nightmare of Obamacare must be reversed.
If it were me, I would cut the noose around the neck of American business(beginning with small business).
To feed my nationalistic strain I would tell Corps that have move Companies that have move their ops to foreign countries, either come home or pay a price.
Stop any and all spending proposals from the Zero Admin. Good bad indifferrent.
I think by compromisethey mean that there are a couple of things in Obamacare that are valid...but they're more about controlling insurance companies than "CARE".
just force the SOB to prove he is legally in office
Most likely is that Republicans will go to work trying to figure out how to pay for all of Obama’s socialist legislation.
just force the SOB to prove he is legally in office
.... the rest will take care of itself
Stand on PRINCIPLE and EDUCATE the public, meaning, ANYTIME the RATS say that Republicans are the party of no, then EXPLAIN WHY NO is the right answer to the Hussein?Pelosi/Reid policies that were shoved down our throats.
Counter the left-wing lies and propaganda with the TRUTH, and don't be afraid to do it in a forceful, direct, principled, and TIMELY fashion, and as many times as it takes to let the people know that what you are trying to do, stop, repair, etc., is the RIGHT thing for America and Americans.
Wimpy, meek members of the Republican party, those that just work in the background and never speak out (people like Johnny Isakson from GA, for example) - START SPEAKING OUT PUBLICLY.
Michelle Bachman, Jim DeMint, and other courageous members of Congress can't be expected to carry all the water anymore.
COME OUT OF THE BACKROOMS AND SHADOWS AND START SPEAKING OUT FOR YOUR CONSTITUENTS! This is a serious time for our country, and NOT one for meek and mild leadership - but out in the open, forceful and direct leadership.
Be bold and unafraid in doing what is RIGHT for America.
Make our founding fathers proud.
11. Not one nickel of federal money for bailouts. Especially states. Let California go bankrupt.
One of the most important things the new House MUST do is to start the destruction of the overreaching federal agencies. This is going to be, more and more, an even more important necessity as Obama tries to use them to do an end run around Congress.
It is the agencies that have been used by our best and worst presidents to increase their power and make Congress more irrelevant- not to mention wasting BILLIONS in tax money.
Roll them back, defund them, and abolish most.
1. Subpoena the original long form birth certificate from Hawaii. Not a computer generated record like the Certification of Live Birth. No, the paper version (or microfilm copy if that's all that is left) of the original certificate with the hospital's name and attending physician's signature. This should either make the issue go away or bring it to a head immediately. Either way finish this by January 31, 2011.
2. Legislate what "Natural Born" means for the future. Half of the arguments about Obama's status revolve around what it means. Born on US soil? Born on US soil to one citizen parent? Two citizen parents? Born to two citizen parents anywhere in the world? Is a natural born citizen the same or different than a citizen at birth?
3. (separate issue) Nail the Department of Justice to the wall on the Black Panther voter intimidation. The dismissal of the case is dirty from top to bottom. The armed Black Panthers should have been handled the same way a couple of Klansmen with a burning cross standing in front of a polling place would have been. Instead, since they were seen as political allies of Obama the DoJ just tried to make the issue disappear.
The question now becomes how many of those 10 will they ignore?
Re: Your point #1. I would expect Bammy defecting to India, and not come back to face the music.
#& - Don’t target Obama. Target Eric Holder. Go after him with everything you’ve got. His mismanagement of the Justice Department is (one of) the weakest links in the Administration’s armor.
