Defeating the Porkulous Package this week!

Posted on February 3, 2009. Filed under: Constitution, Economy, Liberty, Limited Government, Republican Party, TCOT, Twitter | Tags: , , , , |

Welcome to WordPress.com and my first blog here.  I want you to come visit often and help me get started.  But first a word from one of my friends on how to go after the stimulus package and help senators have some backbone and defeat this porkulous package!

What You Can Do About Matters

Prepare to melt the phones again in DC this week. Above all else, be polite. Passion is encouraged, foul language is not. Be aggressive, but not abusive.
Resources:

Senate Phone/Fax numbers (with links to e-mail)

Sample phone script:

“Hello, my name is __________, and I am a member of a conservative social media group called Top Conservatives on Twitter. I’m calling today to find out how Senator _____ intends to vote on S. 1, the stimulus package. (write down and report back the response. If the answer is “Vote Yes”) I’d like to encourage him/her to vote against this piece of legislation because it is too large and will be ineffective in boosting the economy. I especially don’t like (the talking point of the day). Please let Senator ______ know that I would like for him to vote “NO” when this piece of legislation is offered.”

Sample fax/e-mail text (please copy and paste these to your e-mail):

To the Honorable Senator _________,

My name is ____________, and I am a member of a conservative social media group called Top Conservatives on Twitter.  I am writing today to ask you to vote against S. 1, the pork ladened stimulus bailout. This is a bill that is full of wasteful spending and will not effectively boost the economy. In its current form, the stimulus bill will be more expensive than the Iraq and Afghanistan wars combined. It is a bill that is being marketed as an immediate response to a national emergency, but many economist have agreed that it will do nothing but prolong the recession. It reflects the “Christmas wish-list” of the Democrats most powerful interest groups more than the needs of the country. I urge you to keep the country’s best interest in mind, and not the desires of liberal interest groups, in mind as you vote against this bill.

Skype Tips:

Here is one other little treasure for you from my good friend @amishsteve. We are working on a special project for you on TCOTprojects to open up state networks for you (coming soon – stay tuned!) and thought this might help everyone on this project as well. Steve did this in one take and it is full of great information too. I say a star is born and thanks so much for making the video for us. I am pleased to introduce @Amishsteve for a few remarks on how to use Skype effectively:

Bottomline: Moveover Moveon, we’ve had enough porkulous for the liberal social agenda already. Now let’s make some calls this week and see if we can get out of debt not deeper in the proverbial excrement piling up around us.

Jean,

Welcome to blogosphere! I hope you like the post, but add change delete as you will! I just threw it up as a sample. You need to come up with a title for the blog that is all you and do the about section. We can play with the appearance later when you have some time, but this will show you one of the options available with some nice features too!

Blessings,
Sandie

Congrats on your new blog. I’m looking forward to reading wisdom from another Texas Conservative.

Allen
