Warning Shot

Exciting times in the world of Conservative politics!

We all know that we are taking aim at the Pelosi, Reid, Obama liberal-controlled government.  We all know that it will have to be done one election and one candidate at a time.  Do Pelosi, Reid and Obama know that?

They have ignored the will of the people far too long, and it is now time for us to use words they will understand and will not be able to ignore.  What words are those?  Glad you asked!


Our warning shot will come on April 13 in Florida’s special election to fill the people’s seat from District 19 in the US House of Representatives.  Many people, including Ted Deutch, the liberal Democratic challenger in this election, are going to be surprised on the evening of April 13 when the election results start coming in.

What we need is something that will put our conservative Florida voters over the edge so that they will turn out like never before in order to vote for the conservative candidate.  Okay, how’s this from Mr. Deutch’s website? (emphasis mine)

President Obama just signed into law health care reform that extends affordable coverage to 32 million uninsured Americans and ends the most unconscionable of insurance company abuses. For the past week, Americans have rallied in support of these critical reforms – proving once again that good policy makes good politics.

Yet, it has become quite clear that Republicans do not see health care reform as a victory for the American people, but instead as a loss for the insurance companies. That is why Republican Party leaders, from Michelle Bachman to Sarah Palin to John Boehner, are calling for a repeal of these long overdue reforms.

It is no different here in Florida‘s 19th district, where my Republican opponent is calling our April 13th special election the nation’s first referendum on health care. He promises that if elected, he will lead the fight to repeal this “not-so-gradual government take over of the health insurance system” that “subverts our Constitution” and “is an offense against freedom loving Americans who want no part of government run health care.”

Sounds like a solid endorsement for his opponent to me, doesn’t it to you?  Mr. Deutch is right about the way we view the government take-over of our American health care system – the best in the world.  It is a travesty and an embarrassment to those of us who see our individually chosen and preferred health care providers regularly for the purpose of monitoring our health.  We want to live long, productive, happy lives receiving the care we need, the medications and medical treatments we need, and we don’t want some appointed board somewhere to tell us when we’re beyond hope and need to stop taking up medicines and treatments that someone younger “deserves.”  We maintain that the right to life is guaranteed us in the Constitution.

The beginning of the 14th Amendment says, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

It has become painfully obvious to us that the liberals in Congress have their own best interests at the root of these outlandish bills they are forcing down our throats.  Their greed seems to know no bounds.  Until they hit the brick wall that is the American people.

The conservative Republican candidate, Edward Lynch, is in position to be our warning shot across the bow of the sinking American ship-of-state.  We must prove to those unwilling to acknowledge our demands that they work for us – not the other way round.  We take our first shot on April 13 when the good citizens of Florida’s 19th Congressional District send Edward Lynch to represent them – and the rest of America’s conservatives  – in Washington.
