As Margaret has been reminding us, as well as Tara Jane, we need to get the voice of the Republican Party out there. We come here to gain knowledge and to be aware of the issues and then we need to take it the next step; write Congressmen, and send our letters to the editors of our local newspapers to be printed in the Op section. Anita has shared this letter she just had published in her local newspaper. I know that Tara Jane has had done this, too. It is time all of us really consider doing this; Sandy, you may have, too, and if so did not mean to leave you out.
Letter to the Editor
A man with a resume like this in not a leader but is like the “Emperor With No Clothes,” surrounded by sycophants.

Linda....Also keep hounding them by calling the Whitehouse telephone line. So many people have been calling in that they took the "phone off the hook." Some members of Congress are complaining that they have been "bullied by people calling me and I haven't been bullied since the second grade." I LOVE it!
And, since most of these Congressmen and Woman are having to man their own phones due to the "slowdown" because their staffs are on furlough - the poor babies are actually having to talk to the people. Now, if we can just get them to really "LISTEN."
Okay, everyone, do you hear this. Time to get on the phone. It may be the first and only time you will ever get to actually speak to your Congressmen/women. And if they don't answer, leave a message and keep calling. Let them get so annoyed with the sound of the phone ringing that they finally listen. Great news, Tara Jane and I will be on that Monday morning. What fun. Better than anything I have heard of as yet. Margaret, want to join me on the phones Monday? Sounds great to me. Anyone else? Sandy, how about you. We could keep track of how many calls we make and how many actually talk to us. We could do a survey; do you believe the people in your area voted for you? Do you feel you should listen to them? Do you feel they are going to re-elect you now? Do you think that it might be best to listen to these people now? Is government shut down really a solution you support? If people don't want Obamacare, why do you continue to support it? Did the president elect you or did the people? Who do you owe your loyalty, the president or the people?
Just for starters.
Wish I had time to join you, ladies, because they need to be asked the hard questions. Our faux president loves to create chaos then walk around like a peacock with his snippy remarks. Most unpresidential man to ever walk the halls in Washington DC. He makes Jimmy Carter look like a prince.
Anita did a good job. Linda, good questions you pose to ask Congressman on the phone. My two are already in favor of ditching it so no need to call them.
Do you know if we can call others or democrats? It would be nice to tell them we don't want Obamacare.
Way to go, Anita!!!
Margaret, I don't know why we can't . I would also suggest calling Senators Lee, Rubio, Cruz, Vitter, Rand Paul and any others that were involved in the filibruster and thanking them and letting them know we are behind them regarding Obamacare and appreciate what they are doing for us. And that they should ignore the media and others, even in the Republican Party, that are agianst them as they obviously have forgot what these gentlemen have, who the boss is, the voters.
