Build Upon a RUSH Idea - we MUST do this!
Rush and Moi | March 18, 2010 | ~AV~

Posted on 03/18/2010 10:31:52 AM PDT by antivenom

LOOK, I know this isn't technically BREAKING NEWS and I hope the moderators will see that being placed here, we can communicate and support this idea of urgency.

Rush just suggested that we, "God Fearing Freedom Loving Americans" should stimulate the economy by sending a FED EX and or UPS package to the "Fence Sitting Democrats" on Saturday.

WE SHOULD! However to get hundreds of TRUCKS to descend on DC Saturday we have to do the following.

Package the letter in a smallish BOX.

The box will weigh nothing however it will occupy space in the truck.

It will require more trucks to deliver small boxes than "flats" of letters/envelopes.

Package in the BOX a letter that states "VOTE NO!"

We can stimulate business for Private Mail, storm DC with Trucks, and GET OUR POINT ACROSS.

I hope that this idea, rains across America...

Free Republic and Rush can wake up America!

I believe there was a thread last week about a two week delay due to screening.

We won’t have a health care system left after obamanation gets through CUT & GUTTING it. We are fighting for the SOUL of America, not just keeping illegals out.

This is from a 2007 contact list of congressional aides. Some might not be there any longer, but worth a try. The ones on the one post are senate aides, a few have bounced back, it’s worth the effort to clog up their email system along with the phones, and 1/3rd of these senators are up for re-election.

Contact congressional aides.

Defeat Obamacare call list: List now contains the new MAYBES culled from FR posts. Be sure to call KNOWN RINOS too.THEY ARE ANSWERING THEIR LOCAL NUMBERS

Here is one of the ones Rush gave out on the radio that I’m calling. So far it’s been busy but I’m going to burn it up till I get to tell my congress critter to vote NO!
Join me?..... 1-877-762-8762

Good idea from the bloggers at Hillbuzz:

They offer specifics and links on how to put pressure on Dem DONORS, who have private numbers for legislators who may have taken their phones off the hook.
Congress may not want to hear from us, but they’ll listen to the money men.


CODE RED Contact list
Remember they are all being offered BRIBES for their votes. Ask them how much their bribe price is.
The National Republican Congressional Committee has published a target list on health care. In addition to continuing to contact the five Tennessee Democrat Congressmen, you can go to contact some of these targets. Much of the talk following Obama’s announcement has focused on how to defeat this second bill through reconciliation, but that is misleading because the first step to defeating Obamacare is not by concentrating on defeating the “fixer” bill but by defeating the Senate bill in the House when it goes to the floor for an up-or-down vote on Thursday, March 18th.

On the Bubble (Major developments from the “yes” and “no” columns in the House)
Congressional Dems on Twitter
And here are toll-free numbers we can use to call any Senators or Reps.

At the first number below you must wait through a tape recording urging you to tell your Rep or Senator to vote “yes” for the health care bill. Just hang on and when the recording is over, you will get the Capitol operator. Just ask for your Rep or Senator’s office. Then you will either talk to an aid or have the chance to leave a message for him/her to vote NO on the health care bill.

When you use the second number and the Capitol operator comes on, just ask for your Rep or Senator’s office. Every time I use this number I get the Rep or Senator’s answer machine, so it may be set up that way all the go to their answer machine. Either way you can leave a message to vote NO on the health care bill!

We need to use these toll free numbers that have been set up for the health care/ BO supporters and illegals to use! After all they are FREE!

Bad idea.

If this looks like it will come to fruition, some leftist nut job will send a package with "white powder". The media will jump all over it blaming "Right Wing Extremsist's who are anti-health reform"...

Who wants to bet on that one?>

>> I say we we send them a 1040 tax return with a message written across that says:

I’m on board with the FedEx thing ... but I would avoid filing 1040’s with “Come and Take It” written on there. I work in the tax resolution industry, and you really don’t want to screw with the KGB (IRS).

The IRS is EXTREMELY hard on people they determine are “tax protesters”. Such a return is likely to be deemed “frivolous”, and will be slammed with an immediate fine of $5K. And, if you don’t fix the return and pay the fine quickly, they’ll start levying. “Tax Protester” cases are the ONLY instances where I have actually seen the IRS seize homes, cars and property. They’ll shut down businesses. They’ll make your life miserable just to make an example of you for other people that think filing a “Come and Take It” retun would be clever.

Protest away ... but I’d avoid bringing the IRS into the matter. Hell hath no fury ...

Put a block of styrofoam in the box. Something that will take up lots of space and cannot be compacted.

Unfortunetely for all involved, the packages will not go to DC, Some poor schmuck in Virginia will be dealing with them.

See post 24. I wouldn’t bring the IRS into this. They’ll seriously screw up your life if you file a return like that.

Tax return and the message should read: Taxes deemed to be paid!

Excellent, we can send back the census forms deemed to be filled out too.

Somebody update me, but I believe that physical mail and packages are delivered to a security screening facility well away from the capitol and much delayed before any delivery to the House or Senate.

Seems like I remember hearing about this when we all sent the tea bags to Washington last year. They ended up in a screening warehouse and were thrown away.

Perhaps we can combine it somehow with the sob stories for the staffers?

Not sending them biohazard waste or anything, but maybe some insurance forms asking them how to fill out symptoms of excessive burning from being sexually abused by Congress?

So if you get through the switchboard to a sniveling Rat-brat Dem aide, what good will it do to argue points on this bill.

We know the brats hate having to talk to the "dirty little people" out here. The phone lines must be the bane of their existence.

So why not remind them that if Obamacare passes, they will forever be receiving the pleas for help and sob stories that used to go to the doctor's receptionist and the insurance company.

That's right little congressional staffer. From now on, people will have to resort to lobbying their congressional office for approval on treatments of hemorrhoidal problems, on yellow chest congestion, on leaky colostomy bags, on venereal medications, on all sorts of personal "nitty gritty." And THEY will be taking those calls.

Is that what they want? Do they realize that what their boss and their fuhrer is telling them to push for will end up in their laps on the front line? I think it would cut through the clutter for them. Might spawn some pretty good water cooler discussions in DC, no?

This site can be used to find Political Donors

Hillbuzz has come up with an AWESOME strategy. Since Congress isn’t listening to the people, than the people must find who Congress does listen to - donors. Congress ignores the people - but it does not and can not ignore its donors. So click on the site below and find who those donors are.

Folks - this ‘newsmeat’ site is awesome; my jaw dropped to the ground when I saw it. You can search for the donor or the candidate or even just the zip code and the numbers pop up. It tells you that donor is, how much they gave, when and where you can get hold of them. Oh, man, this is awesome! And trust me, once you find who that donor is, you contact them and tell THEM how furious you are at the candidate they’ve supported who is now taking our civil liberties away and giving us taxation without representation. Folks - trust me. Donors are spineless wussies. You start giving them grief for what Congress is doing and they’ll pass that grief on instantly to Congress. Damn! THAT will get the job done.

Very interesting point.

The bastards will just hire additional staff to handle the phone calls and then bammie will say he created more jobs!
