Report on Congesswoman Susan Davis Townhall

The following report is from Scott Reiker of the San Diego Tea Party:

We had a whopper of a turnout at Susan Davis’s town hall meeting in Spring Valley Saturday Aug 28. There were a thousand or more people total. I think we had at least as many there as the pro Obamacare folks did. We were a lot more vocal however. Anytime a statement was made we agreed with or found a problem with, the place rocked. Before the program started the pro Obamacare people began a chant which we countered and blew them out. There was some friendly discussion between some people. I don’t believe that Davis had any idea of exactly who she was about to deal with.

Davis started by giving a “short” talk about why we need health care reform. She was met with jeers when she made statements that were obviously innacurate or obfuscated. I could tell this was not to be the dog and pony show of a month ago in Hillcrest. The process used to choose questioners was fair, names were picked from a box, pretty random. I don’t think there were more than 5 softball, suck up questions the entire time.

As people asked particularly pertinent questions, the crowd would cheer loudly. As Davis danced around giving an accurate answer or gave an answer that was not acceptable, she was met with scorching shouts from the crowd. She heard from the people and the people left no doubt that socialism and communism were not what we want.

One particularly interesting exchange was made when Davis was asked about a poll on her web site asking if Obamacare was wanted. Apparently the results showed 85% no. The question was something like, “Are you going to vote on this matter as your constituents have told you they want?” Her answer was that she believed in the public option. In other words, damn my constituents,I’ll vote any way I want. You should have heard the roar, it was a beautiful noise! This is something the people in her district need to know about.

The people sitting to my left were, well, leftists. The guys behind them were not. The guys behind started a conversation about why the lefties believed what they believed and would not accept the anwers that were given. When pushed further the lefties had no answers and just started laughing at the questions. They were given no quarter and their false laughter sounded more and more false, forced and frankly, like they didn’t believe in it anymore. Once the show started and it became obvious that this was not going to be a worship service for Davis and Obamacare the lefties left in a huff. Pretty entertaining really. There was no hint of confrontation that could have led to violence during the entire event. We had a great time as seemed everyone else did, excepting Davis and her crowd.

If you don’t believe in a God the end of the program should give you pause to reconsider. There were two speakers chosen to to ask the last questions. No better people could have been chosen. Suzanne, who belongs to our Tea Party as well as being very active in other public service and conservative groups, and our own organizer Jeff Wangsgaard were given the final questions and considering Davis’s answers theirs were the final words.

Suzanne spoke of our history on independence and why should government be involved in our lives from cradle to grave. As Suzanne pointed out afterward there was no answer forthcoming from Davis.
Jeff spoke to the already huge national debt and the complete lack of funds, and therefore, the affordability of Obamacare. He asked Davis to explain the funding while it is fully well known the answer is simply raise taxes on everyone. Davis’ answer, raise taxes on the wealthy. Boy did we hear that beautiful noise from the people again. Cries of liar, unacceptable, communist and socialism rang out. The look on Davis's face was worth the long hot wait outside as well as the hour wait inside. It was rewarding to see and hear the people speak to their misrepresentative.

For me this was a lot of fun. It is such a shame that losing our freedom, our liberty, our Constitution and our country is so very serious and so very real.

A heartfelt Thank You to those who turned out. To those who couldn't make it, it is not over. There is much heavy lifting to do and the more of us that take part the easier it will be for all.

Report on the Tea Party March on Sacramento

Here is a report on the Tea Party March on Sacremento from one of the Conservative Activists members who went, Jane Lauhon of Temecula. I've made that long bus trip to protest in Sacremento before and the people who went are very dedicated activists; we owe them our thanks:

"Ted asked me to report on the trip to the Tea Party March on Sacramento this past Friday. The North County Conservatives (San Diego County), coordinated a tour bus trip for some San Diego County residents and included some of us from Temecula and Murrieta and Sun City. Those of us from up here, met the bus at 12:15 am Friday morning at Hope Lutheran Church in Temecula. There were, probably, around 30 of us on the bus and many of us were too wound up to sleep, so, chattered for several hours. Some of us did manage to finally get a few winks. We arrived in Sacramento about 8:00 am, or thereabouts, and found a little cafe and ate breakfast. We wandered around until some the activities began at 11:00. It got pretty hot, but, there are hugh trees on the grounds of the Capital building and the shade from those trees made the weather bearable.

The police presence was very noticeable and we all were glad to have that support. A lady that I met at the Tea Party told me she understood ACORN was supposed to be there. I asked one of the officers about that and he did confirm that they may join us. He told me they would be escorted out of our area and told to stand behind a barricade. The only problem that I am aware of was an older woman member of ACORN was yelling and cussing at one of the farmer who was speaking. The police escorted her our of the vicinity. There was one arrest of a young male who was wearing a black hoodie with the hood over his head, but, don't know what that was all about. I am very grateful for the police presence at the event.

Of course, the Tea Party Express was a great highlight! They stuck around for a while, then, left to start their tour to the March on Washington, DC on September 12, 2009. There were songs being sung and many speakers on the stage that day. While the farmer, who I mentioned earlier, was speaking, tractors and dump trucks were being driven around the block of the Capital building which was a great sight to behold! They were all very appreciative of our support and I hope they are successful in getting their water back on.

Not only were the farmers being supported; Veteran's, former and past were being honored. It was so great to see some of our current Veterans dressed in their cammo's up on the stage along with other veterans who were present in the audience and asked to come up to the stage, also. The Patriotism that was displayed on Friday made me even that much prouder to be an American citizen and gives me more will to fight for our country! The current administration has UNDERESTIMATED THE WILL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!!

Our bus left for home at 5:00 p.m. which was the ending time of the Tea Party. We stopped just outside of Sacramento and ate a quick dinner at a Wendy's and were on our way. We arrived in Temecula about 2:00 a.m. Everyone on the bus was pretty tired, but, elated at the same time. I probably have left some things out of my report because there was so much going on, but, I think you all get the feeling of how our day went!!

Organizing for America "Townhall" admits private health care will be destroyed

Click on image above to enlarge.

I attended an Organizing for America "Townhall" in Claremont Thursday night. In reality, it was not a true townhall. It was a 1 1/2 hour sales presentation by Obama supporters (some admitted socialists),most of whom are members of an Organization called "The American Institute for Progressive Democracy". One surprising thing was that they admitted in their literature that they believe the so-called "public option" will cause the private for-profit sector to recognize that it can not effective compete.

This is what Conservatives have been saying all along. That the public option will destroy the free enterprise system in the health care sector. At least they are finally admitting it.

Unamerican Obama supporter cursed out Congressman

Over 700 patriotic America loving tea party patriots listened to Congressman Jerry Lewis at a town hall sponsored by the Redlands Tea Party. Congressman Lewis warned about the wealth redistrubition (marxist) polices of Barack Obama. The Redlands Tea Party Patriots are the kind of people who have been called "unamerican" and carrying "Nazi signs". View the video yourself and decide who the vulgar unamerican person is.

Ronald Reagan speaks out against socialized medicine

Ronald Reagan speaks out against socialized medicine in 1961. His warnings are just as timely for Americans as they were when he spoke them 48 years ago.
