The Art of Political War for Tea Parties – by David Horowitz

teaparty1

A specter is haunting America – the specter of a people rising. All across the nation Americans are waking up to the threat of a leftist elite determined to fundamentally change America, push through a socialist agenda, and make every citizen dependent on the state. The Obama machine is spending trillions of tax-payer dollars to finance their takeover of the American workplace and stifle the independence of the American people. But America is resilient nation, built on the principles of private property and individual freedom, and the resistance to their socialist plans has already begun.

In May 2009, just five months into the Obama administration, the people of California launched a tax revolt in the biggest spending state in the nation. So reckless were the leftist Democrats who run California (and have done so for as long as anyone can remember) that its deficit alone was larger than the budgets of most other states in the Union and of many of the nations of the world. Leftwing politicians don’t cut budgets; they propose new taxes. And California’s leftwing legislature did just that. But thanks to a constitutional amendment put in place by the California electorate through the state Initiative process, California legislators can’t raise taxes without a two-thirds referendum of the people. So they were forced to hold a special election in May to appeal to the electorate to pass five new ballot Initiatives to raise taxes.

But when the votes were counted, all five tax-raising Initiatives had been defeated by 60% margins. Even in San Francisco. A sixth Initiative designed by tax opponents to punish legislators who do not balance the budget passed by a more than 70% margin. Even in San Francisco. If one of the most liberal states in the Union is saying no to the soak-the-public philosophy of leftwing legislators, Obama socialism is in big trouble.

The revolt in California quickly spread to the entire nation through the efforts of the Tea Parties movement, the most innovative, exciting and powerful grassroots force in the history of American conservatism. It is vital to the health of this country that the Tea Parties movement grow. More to the point: it is essential to American survival that the Tea Parties movement succeed. On the eve of the 2008 presidential election, Barack Obama said “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming America.” The Tea Parties movement is the American people saying no to Obama’s plans for revolution.

A movement without an effective strategy for defeating its opponents cannot succeed. Therefore it is important to reacquaint ourselves with the art of political war.

While Democrats are morally bankrupt and clueless about policy – about what makes things work — they still win elections because they understand a simple fact: American politics is driven by the romance of the underdog, the story of the little guy who goes up against the system and triumphs in the end. It is a story about opportunity and fairness. To win the hearts and minds of the American voter, you have to tap the emotions the romance of the underdog evokes. Whoever does so has a winning edge.

America’s heroes are all cut to this common mold. Whether it is George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Davy Crockett, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Amelia Earhart, Jackie Robinson, Ronald Reagan or Colin Powell, the theme is always the same: The common man who rises against the odds. America’s political romance is “Mr. Smith Goes To Washington” to make things right. It is “Meet John Doe” who speaks for the voiceless. It is Luke Skywalker who saves the planet by using the good side of the Force to defeat the Empire. It is the odyssey of individuals who challenge power, overcome adversity and rise to the top. Everyone in America thinks of themselves as an underdog and aspires to be a hero.

The cause of the underdog wins American hearts because it resonates with our deepest religious and moral convictions of doing good and helping others. And because it is America’s own story. We began as a small nation, standing up to the world’s most powerful empire. We dedicated ourselves to the idea that all men are created equal. We are a nation of immigrants and a generous people who arrived with nothing and made fortunes in a new world. This is the American Dream.

It’s a story that will get you every time. But at election time, it’s the political left and the Democratic Party who know how to wield it as a political weapon, and Republicans and conservatives generally who don’t. Of course the Tea Parties have changed all that. And that is another sign that we are in an extraordinary political moment. The Tea Parties draw on the heritage of America’s own revolution as an underdog nation and are the voice of the people, oppressed now by their own government which is out of control and determined to crush them.

In positioning themselves as champions of the under-represented, neglected and oppressed, leftists employ a version of America’s story that they have manufactured through their grip on the media and the academic culture. They have transformed America’s story from an epic of freedom into a tale of racism, exploitation and domination. In their telling, American history is no longer a narrative of expanding opportunity, of men and women succeeding against the odds. Instead, it is a Marxist Morality Play about the powerful and their victims.

In staging their political dramas, progressives invariably claim to speak in the name of America’s alleged “victims.” Every policy of the Democratic Party is presented as a program to help these “victims”—women, children, minorities and the poor. Simultaneously, Democrats describe Republican policies as programs that will injure the weak, ignore the vulnerable, and keep the powerless down.

Republicans play right into the Democrats’ trap because they approach politics as a problem of management. To Republicans, every issue is a management issue—the utility of a tax cut, the efficiency of a program, the optimal method for running an enterprise. Republicans talk like businessmen who want a chance to manage the country so that it will turn a profit.

There is nothing wrong with instituting good policies and running things efficiently or turning a profit. But while Republicans are performing these Gold Star activities, Democrats are engaged in a different kind of drama. They are busy attacking Republicans as servants of the rich, oppressors of the weak and defenders of the strong. And enemies of “the people.”

Listen to Mario Cuomo describing Republicans to the Democrats’ 1996 National Convention:

We need to work as we have never done before between now and November 5th to take the Congress back from Newt Gingrich and the Republicans, because ladies and gentlemen, brothers and sisters, the Republicans are the real threat. They are the real threat to our women. They are the real threat to our children. They are the real threat to clean water, clean air and the rich landscape of America.

Mario Cuomo knows the language of political war.

Democrats connect emotionally with people’s fears and concerns. The appeal to help the underdog and defend the victim resonates with all Americans. This is because Americans are a fair-minded people. Most successful Americans came from humble origins themselves. They want to help others. They want everyone to have the chance to succeed.

So do Republicans and conservatives. But they rarely connect their policies and principles to this political romance.

There’s a good reason for this. Conservatives are busy defending the real America against the left’s attacks and the anti-American caricature they have constructed. Conservatives know that America is still a land of opportunity and freedom, and that nobody in America is really “oppressed.” (Otherwise, why would poor, black, Hispanic and Asian minorities be desperately seeking to come here? Why wouldn’t they be leaving instead?)

But politics isn’t just about reality. If it were, good principles and good policies would win every time. It’s about images and symbols, and the emotions they evoke. This is a battle that conservatives generally lose.

In the romance of the victim, as progressives stage it, Republicans and conservatives are always on the side of the bad guys—the powerful, the male, the white and the wealthy. It’s easy to see how patriotism plays into this trap. Defending America is readily mis-represented as an attitude that says: “I’m all right Jack, so you should be too.” The left relishes the opportunity to smear patriots as members of the selfish party instead of as defenders of individual freedom.

Ann Coulter has described the motto of the left as this: “Speak loudly and carry a small victim.” For the Democrats, the romance of the victim stirs the souls of their supporters and energizes their base. Equally important, it provides the nuclear warhead of their political attack. Conservatives are targeted victimizers, and leftists as the champions of the oppressed. Learning how to turn this around will turn around the political war as well.

Going On The Attack

Fortunately, conservatives can use the left-wing attack against them. Contrary to the left’s view, America is not a land of victims. It is a highly mobile society, with a citizenry that aspires upwards through the system, not against it.

Conservatives can also turn the left’s oppression myth around, and aim its guns at them. In fact, using the romance of the underdog against the left is the best way to neutralize their attack.

The way to do it is to recognize that the most powerful forces obstructing opportunity for poor and minority Americans, the most powerful forces oppressing them, are progressives, the Democratic Party, and their political creation—the welfare state.

There is really nothing new in this idea. Conservatives already oppose the programs of the left as obstacles to the production of wealth and barriers to opportunity for all Americans. What is new is the idea of connecting this analysis to a political strategy that will give conservatives a decisive edge in battle—that will neutralize the class, race and gender warfare attacks of the political left.

The Principles

Here are the principles of political war that the left understands but conservatives do not:

1. Politics is war conducted by other means

2. Politics is a war of position

3. In political wars the aggressor usually prevails

4. Position is defined by fear and hope

5. The weapons of politics are symbols evoking fear and hope

6. Victory lies on the side of the people

Here are the principles explained:

Politics is war conducted by other means.

In political warfare you do not fight just to prevail in an argument, but to destroy the enemy’s fighting ability. Conservatives often seem to regard political combats as they would a debate before the Oxford Political Union, as though winning depends on rational arguments and carefully articulated principles. But the audience of politics is not made up of Oxford dons, and the rules are entirely different.

For starters, you have only 30 seconds to make your point. Even if you had time to develop an argument, the audience you need to reach (the undecided and those in the middle who are not paying much attention) wouldn’t get it. Your words would go over some of their heads and the rest would not even hear them (or be quickly forgotten) amidst the bustle and pressure of daily life. Worse, while you’ve been making your argument the other side has already painted you as a mean-spirited, border-line racist controlled by religious zealots, securely in the pockets of the rich. Nobody who sees you this way is going to listen to you in any case. You’re politically dead.

Politics is war. Don’t forget it.

Politics is a war of position.

In war there are two sides: friends and enemies. Your task is to define yourself as the friend of as large a constituency compatible with your principles as possible, while defining your opponent as their enemy wherever and whenever you can. The act of defining combatants is analogous to the military concept of choosing the terrain of battle.

Choose the terrain that makes the fight as loaded in your favor as possible. But be careful. American politics takes place in a pluralistic framework, where constituencies are diverse and often in conflict. “Fairness” and “tolerance” are the formal rules of democratic engagement. If you appear mean-spirited, nasty, or too judgmental, it will make the task easier for your opponent to define you as a threat, and therefore as “the enemy.” (See principle 4)

In political warfare, the aggressor usually prevails.

Conservatives often pursue a strategy of waiting for the other side to attack. In football this is known as a “prevent defense.” In politics it is the strategy of losers.

Aggression is advantageous because politics is a war of position. Position is defined by images that stick. By striking first you can define the issues and your adversary. Defining the opposition is the decisive move in all political war. Other things being equal, whoever is put on the defensive generally winds up on the losing side.

In attacking your opponent, take care to do it right. Going negative increases the risk of being defined as an enemy. Therefore, it can be counter-productive. Ruling out the negative, however, can incur an even greater risk.

Position is defined by fear and hope.

The twin emotions of politics are fear and hope. Those who provide people with hope become their friends; those who inspire fear become enemies. Of the two, hope is the better choice. By offering people hope and yourself as its provider, you show your better side and maximize your potential support.

But fear is a powerful and indispensable weapon. If your opponent defines you negatively enough, he will diminish your ability to offer hope. This is why Democrats are so determined to portray conservatives as mean-spirited, and hostile to minorities, the middle class and the poor.

It is important to work away from the negative images your opponent wants to pin on you. If you know you are going to be attacked as intolerant and bigoted it’s a good idea to lead with a position that is inclusive and fair-minded. If you are going to be framed as mean-spirited and ungenerous, it’s a good idea to put on a smile and lead with symbols that project generosity and charity.

The weapons of politics are symbols evoking fear and hope.

Conservatives lose a lot of political battles because they come across as hard-edged, scolding, scowling and sanctimonious. A good rule of thumb says be just the opposite. You have to convince people you care about them before they’ll care about what you have to say.

When you do get to speak, don’t forget that a sound-bite is all you have. Whatever you have to say, make sure to say it loud and clear. Keep it simple and keep it short. (A slogan is always better). Repeat it often. Get it on television. Radio is good, but with few exceptions, only television reaches a public that is electorally significant. In politics, television is reality.

Of course, you have a base of supporters who will listen for hours to what you have to say if that’s what you want. In the battles facing you, they will play an important role. Therefore, what you say to them is also important. But it is not going to decide elections. The audiences that will determine your fate are audiences that you will first have to persuade. You will have to find a way to reach them and get them to listen. And get them to support you. With these audiences, you will never have time for real arguments or proper analyses. Images—symbols and sound-bites—will always prevail.

Therefore it is absolutely essential to focus your message and repeat it over and over again. Lack of focus will derail your message. If you make too many points, your message will be diffused and nothing will get through. The result will be the same as if you had made no point at all.

Leftists have a party line. When they are fighting an issue they focus their agenda. During legislative battles, every time a Democrat steps in front of the cameras there is at least one line in his speech that is shared with his colleagues. “Tax breaks for the wealthy at the expense of the poor,” is one example. Repetition insures that the message will get through.

When Republicans speak during legislative battles, they all march to a different drummer. There are many messages instead of one. One message is a sound-bite. Many messages are an indecipherable noise. The result of many messages is that there is no message.

Symbols and sound-bites determine the vote. These are what hit people in the gut before they have time to think. And these are what people remember. Symbols are the impressions that last, and what ultimately defines you.

Carefully chosen words and phrases are more important than paragraphs, speeches, party platforms and manifestos. What you project through images is what you are.

Victory lies on the side of the people.

This is the bottom line for each of the principles and for all of the principles. You must define yourself in ways that people understand. You must give people hope in your victory, and make them fear the victory of your opponent. You can accomplish both by identifying yourself and your issues with the underdog and the victim, with minorities and the disadvantaged, with the ordinary Janes and Joes.

This is what leftists do best, and conservatives often neglect to do at all. Every political statement by a leftist is an effort to say: “We care about women, children, minorities, working Americans and the poor.” And: “Conservatives are mean-spirited, serve the rich and don’t care about you.” This is the left’s strategy of political war. If conservatives are to win the political war we have to turn these images around.

We also have to make our campaigns a cause. During the Cold War, conservatives had a cause. They were saving the country from Communism. It was a cause that resonated at every level with the American people. The poorest citizen understood that their freedom was at stake in making sure that conservatives were elected to conduct the nation’s defense.

In a democracy, the cause that fires up passions is the cause of the people. That is why politicians like to run “against Washington” and against anything that represents the “powers that be.” As the left has shown, the idea of justice is a powerful motivator. It will energize the troops and fuel the campaigns that are necessary to win the political war. Conservatives believe in economic opportunity and individual freedom. The core of our ideas is freedom and justice for all. If we can make this intelligible to the American electorate, we will become the majority again and stop the socialist juggernaut that threatens our American future.

    What do you mean? George W. doesn't like Dick Cheney?

    I don't know where your thoughts are bought mine are about the quality of the people you associate with.

    Whatever else you may be reading into my screen name says volumes about yourself and how you betray others.

    The meetings of President Obama with the national leaders of various Asian countries are poignant contrasts between patriotic nationalists and a leader that would surrender his nation's sovereignty to a new, feudal, one-world government.
    For example, we can expect Chinese President, Hu Jintao, to act in the Machiavellian national interest of the Chinese. President Hu Jintao may pay lip service to the liberal, ostensible environmental agenda of the Socialist International. At Copenhagen, the global elite intend to enact an international bureaucracy to ration and regulate carbon usage.. The carbon fuel ration cards and mandated regulations may serve the interest of the one-world nobility and the plutocratic banking, commodities and trading firms that will obtain the license to sell these permission slips. But this re-distribtion of the wealth of the productive , prospering nations to the third world is not in China's interest.
    Unlike our own President, the leaders of China, Russia and India can be expected to act solely in the interest of their citizens. Hu Jintao is a 21st Century Kublai Khan. He will agree to anything that is in his nation's interest, then wisely disavow, abrogate and scoff at any rule or regualtion in a treaty detrimental to China. Further more, as a loan officer and financier of our hope and change deficit spending, he will dictate terms and conditions. With the money acquired through the Republican Free Trade policy, Hu Jinbao will dictate the agenda of Congress and this Administration. He will demand that we betray Taiwan, Japan, The Philippines and all of Eastern Asia to the control and hegemony of China, or else there will be no more trillion dollar loans to our profligate Congress.
    Americans are not interested in becoming a mere fief in a revised, global (un) Holy Roman Empire. Nor do they wish for a revised group of Tories who will actively betray this country like Benedict Arnold and Count Rumford to the rule and reign of foreign lords and kings. Michael Guy

    Government job? What?

    I have a software company and I do special effects for television and film. I moved to LA with nothing 15 years ago and built everything I had with blood, sweat, and tears.

    “The truth is that Obama was going to change the way goverenment works, but business as usual and worse. He ran his campaign with a multitude of false statements. Do you deny that?”

    Deny what? What the hell are you talking about?

    Look John, thanks for piping in and contributing nothing…kiss off

    a.. Enough is enough. We're calling for the Impeachment of Barack Hussein
    Obama. And if you agree, you can join us right now.

    Right here and right now, you can add your voice to ours… and add
    your name to the Articles of Impeachment against Barack Hussein Obama.

    Why are we calling for the Impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama?

    Radio-personality Tammy Bruce may have said it best:

    ————————————————————————

    “… ultimately, it comes down to… the fact that he seems to have,
    it seems to me, some malevolence toward this country, which is unabated.”

    ————————————————————————

    Oh… there are many reasons to call for the impeachment of
    Barack Hussein Obama and there is more than just cause to call for his
    impeachment.

    But as Bruce said, Obama's “unabated malevolence toward this
    country, which is unabated” makes it all the more imperative that we take
    action now… without delay.

    How long must we wait… how long should we sit back and permit
    Barack Hussein Obama to rip apart the fabric of this country before we take
    action?

    Are you terrified at Barack Obama’s campaign to change our
    country into a third-world nation?

    Are you willing to sit back and watch Obama bulldoze our
    great nation?

    Are you willing to let him construct a totalitarian regime…
    fascism, socialism, Obamaism… take your pick?

    If any of the above scenarios concern you… join us.

    At the very least, fire a shot across the bow… a shot that
    will be heard around the world… and send Barack Hussein Obama a clear and
    unmistakable message that he does not have carte blanche to ruin the United
    States of America.

    As the late former President Ronald Reagan once said, “If not
    us, then who; if not now, then when.”

    You can join us by using the sign-up button below to read and
    then add your name to the Articles of Impeachment we've drawn-up against
    Barack Hussein Obama.

    If, after reading the Articles of Impeachment against Barack
    Hussein Obama, you agree that action must be taken now, all you have to do
    to join our growing network of patriotic Americans is add your name (which
    will remain on our secure form and be kept in the strictest confidence until
    the time is right) to the Articles of Impeachment against Barack Hussein
    Obama.

    That's all there is to it. Be among the first to join this
    growing nationwide movement and help us spread the word far-and-wide.
    Together, we can take back our country before it is too late.

    Can we actually impeach Barack Hussein Obama? Should we impeach
    Barack Hussein Obama?

    To borrow a phrase from the “anointed-one,” … “yes we can.”

    But before going on, we really need to address the often
    misunderstood subject of what exactly constitutes an impeachable offense, in
    order to illustrate that Barack Obama's actions are grave enough to warrant
    impeachment.

    Former-President Gerald Ford, while serving in the House of
    Representatives, said an impeachable offense was, “whatever a majority of
    the House of Representatives considers it to be at a given moment in
    history.”

    Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution reads: “The
    President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall
    be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason,
    bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”

    The key phrase here is “high crimes and misdemeanors,” a
    concept in English Common Law that was well-known to our Founding Fathers
    but is grossly misunderstood in this day and age.

    “High crimes and misdemeanors” essentially means bad behavior.

    Here's a passage from C-Span.org which succinctly and
    beautifully summarizes the historical significance surrounding the inclusion
    of the term “high crimes and misdemeanors” in the Constitution:

    “’High crimes and misdemeanors’ entered the text of the Constitution
    due to George Mason and James Madison. Mason had argued that the reasons
    given for impeachment – treason and bribery – were not enough. He worried
    that other “great and dangerous offenses” might not be covered… so Mason
    then proposed ‘high crimes and misdemeanors,’ a phrase well-known in English
    common law. In 18th century language, a ‘misdemeanor’ meant ‘mis-demeanor,’
    or bad behavior.”

    In other words, “high crimes and misdemeanors” does not refer
    to a criminal act (as some would lead you to believe) and our Founding
    Fathers fully intended to allow for the removal of the President for actions
    which were… well… simply put… egregious… grossly incompetent…
    grossly negligent… outright distasteful… or, in the case of Barack
    Hussein Obama, actions which clearly show “malevolence toward this country,
    which is unabated.”

    And make no mistake, for those who mistakenly hold the illusion
    that impeaching Barack Hussein Obama would be a simple matter of “playing
    politics,” the Founders fully intended that the impeachment of a sitting
    President be a political act.

    As C-Span.org notes:

    “The Congress decides the definition [of impeachable offenses]: by
    majority vote in the House for impeachment, and by 2/3 vote in the Senate
    for conviction. The Framers of the Constitution deliberately put impeachment
    into the hands of the legislative branch rather than the judicial branch,
    thus transforming it from strictly a matter of legal definition to a matter
    of political judgment. Then Representative Gerald Ford put it into practical
    perspective in 1970, when he said an impeachable offense is ‘whatever a
    majority of the House of Representatives considers it to be at a given
    moment in history.’”

    The Obama Administration exemplifies maladministration. It
    qualifies as the poster-child for bad behavior.

    Obama and those around him are ravaging this great country and
    adding a sorry chapter to a noble history.

    Impeachment, as written in the Constitution, was tailor-made
    for Barack Hussein Obama and our Founders placed it in our Constitution for
    such a time as this.

    It could be easily argued that we have a duty to impeach Barack
    Hussein Obama.

    Of course, our elected officials won't have the back-bone to go
    it alone. That's where you come in.

    Help us spread the word far-and-wide and our elected officials
    will come to know that Impeachment is the will of the American people and
    they ignore the will of the people at their own political peril.

    The question is not whether we should impeach Barack Hussein
    Obama. Rather, the question is, can we impeach Barack Hussein Obama before
    it is too late?

    You can join us by using the sign-up button below to read and

    A personal introduction is in order. My name is Floyd Brown.

    Most people know me as the man behind the infamous Willie
    Horton Ad that sunk the presidential aspirations of Governor Michael
    Dukakis, or for the pivotal work in support of the confirmation of Justice
    Clarence Thomas.

    I was also among the first to sound the alarm on the Clinton
    Whitewater scandal as well as the mysterious circumstances surrounding the
    apparent suicide of White House Counsel Vince Foster during the early
    Clinton years.

    And when it comes to the subject of impeachment, I've been down
    this road and trod this ground before.

    I was among the first, to rally for the impeachment of Bill
    Clinton back in the summer of 1994 when it was not a popular subject with
    the political elites (on both sides of the aisle) in Washington.

    It was a massive, difficult and historical undertaking.

    But the House of Representatives did eventually advance
    Articles of Impeachment against Bill Clinton and 45 and 50 United States
    Senators respectively voted to convict Bill Clinton on the two counts that
    were advanced in the Senate.

    That's nothing to sneeze at… nothing to be ashamed of… .

    And when it comes to the subject of the impeachment of Barack
    Hussein Obama, I'll say this much… Barack Hussein Obama is no Bill
    Clinton.

    There's an old expression; you're known by the company you
    keep.

    However, I also believe that there is no truer barometer of a
    person's character and effectiveness in battle than those who stand in
    opposition to that person and things they say about that person.

    And, to be quite blunt, liberals, for years now, have foamed
    at the mouth at the mention of my name.

    During the presidential election, CNN called me; “An old
    right-wing attack dog has returned with a new target: Barack Obama.”

    George Stephanopoulos once called me “a slimy thug for hire.”

    Not a true statement by any stretch of the imagination, but
    coming from Stephanopoulos, I consider it a compliment. My mother always
    used to say, “consider the source.”

    Of course, the purpose of telling you all of this is not to
    blow my horn but rather to let you know that when it comes to this movement
    to impeach Barack Hussein Obama… we're deadly serious… we're
    dedicated… we're in it for the long haul… we're willing to do what it
    takes to get the job done… and we have the battle-scars to prove it.

    And yes, I believe that Barack Hussein Obama is one of the most
    dangerous men in the world today and when it comes to his plans for
    transforming the United States into his idea of a socialist utopia… you
    ain't seen nothing yet.

    Removing Barack Hussein Obama is an imperative for this
    country.

    You can join us by using the sign-up button below to read and
    then add your name to the Articles of Impeachment we've drawn-up against
    Barack Hussein Obama.

    If, after reading the Articles of Impeachment against Barack

    Make no mistake. We’re now in the middle of a bloodless coup – the
    takeover of an entire nation by the hate-America crowd – a cold-blooded gang
    that despises American's prosperity, our standing in the world, our trust in
    God and our generosity and goodness.

    America is a monument to the triumph of freedom. When Barack
    Obama thinks about freedom, he sees a world in which some people, due to
    personal initiative and good fortune, will do better than others… live
    better than others.

    And in that regard, he is right. But Barack Obama sees that as
    unfair. Where you see freedom, liberty and the opportunity for any American
    to be all that he or she can be, Obama sees greed and bigotry.

    And, like so many on the far-left before him, going all the way
    back to Karl Marx, he believes that it's his mission to promote “equality of
    outcome” over “equality of opportunity” even if Americans must learn to live
    in chains to make it happen (in fact, servitude to the iron will of
    government will be required).

    That worldview makes Barack Hussein Obama a very dangerous man
    and one of the greatest threats to your personal liberty today.

    That dangerous worldview also explains why he has already
    gobbled-up major banks and why the government now controls more and more of
    our money – yours and mine. And if you wake up one day to discover you’re
    broke, don’t be surprised. Barack Hussein Obama is Bernie Madoff with the
    political power of the presidency at his disposal.

    That dangerous worldview explains the sudden and shocking
    erosion of your freedom to make a living, to run your own business, whether
    a Mom-and-Pop grocery store or General Motors.

    That dangerous worldview explains why his Attorney General,
    Eric Holder, despises the 2nd Amendment… why, if he had his way, he would
    take away our guns, leaving us defenseless against gangs and hoods – and,
    more to the point, against Obama's own shock-troops from ACORN or SEIU.
    Remember, it was the healthy and rational fear of government that led to the
    inclusion of the 2nd Amendment in the Constitution of the United States.

    And that dangerous worldview explains why Obama intends to take
    away your freedom to choose your own doctor… your own treatment. Wherever
    government controls health care, bureaucrats decide who gets treatments…
    who gets transplants… who gets dialysis… who gets costly medication…
    and who needs to die for the common good.

    What can we do to stop this monomaniac… this American
    dictator? There’s only one answer.

    Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution reads: “The
    President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall
    be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason,
    bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”

    Here are just a handful of the high crimes and misdemeanors
    committed by Barack Hussein Obama.

    He lied to the American people when he said we could keep our
    private insurance, knowing full well that his legislation would inevitably
    drive private insurers out of business.

    Gerald Walpin, Inspector General of the Corporation For
    National and Community Service investigated Kevin Johnson, a big buddy of
    the president, for misuse of funds from an AmeriCorps grant. Whereupon Obama
    vindictively fired Walpin to cover for Johnson. A subsequent investigation
    vindicated Walpin’s judgment in the matter.

    Barack Hussein Obama has overseen the effective takeover by
    government of banks, the largest insurance company (AIG), and General Motors
    (GM) and Chrysler… the bulk of the U.S. auto industry, thus depriving
    bondholders, shareholders, and others of their property.

    Barack Hussein Obama is actively pursuing cap-and-trade
    legislation. Instead of taxing the very air we breathe, it would instead, in
    a manner of speaking, tax the air we exhale and give the government
    unprecedented control over the economy and American businesses.

    Barack Hussein Obama is running up our debt at an alarming
    rate. In just 9 months since Obama assumed office, our National Debt has
    gone up by over a trillion dollars. To put that figure in perspective, it
    took George W. Bush 8 years to add 4.8 trillion to the National Debt.

    And, to add insult to injury, we're printing money like it's
    going out of style. The effect will be hyper-inflation, a crippling of our
    economy and, quite possibly, personal hardship on a scale that has not been
    experienced since the Great Depression.

    Barack Hussein Obama has appointed countless “Czars” to oversee
    everything from the closing of Guantanamo to the food we eat. These Czars
    don’t have to be approved by the Senate. The Czars have unprecedented power
    and report only to Obama. Members of both parties are disturbed by these
    extra-Constitutional excrescences.

    Senator Robert Byrd said: “The accumulation of power by White
    House staff can threaten the Constitutional system of checks and balances.”
    Congressman Jack Kingston called the Czars a “parallel government.”

    And finally, Obama has consistently refused to approve the
    release of his actual birth certificate, college transcripts and his medical
    records.

    And these matters only scratch the surface.

    It's almost as if Obama is intentionally trying to destroy the
    country.

    Barack Hussein Obama has said that America is not a Christian
    nation, on countless occasions, despite surveys that find a whopping
    majority say the contrary.

    In his book, The Audacity of Hope, he wrote of Muslims and
    Arabic immigrants: “… I will stand with them should the political winds
    shift in an ugly direction.”

    When he spoke at Georgetown University, a Catholic institution,
    the White House insisted that the name of Jesus, be covered. Georgetown
    complied.

    In 2006, he said; “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a
    Christian nation.” He went to Egypt and said, “You might say that America is
    a Muslim nation.”

    Why go to such lengths to deny the Christian heritage of the
    United States?

    Surely Barack Hussein Obama knows that our personal liberties
    flow directly from our Christian heritage… that there is no surer way to
    destroy our republic than to deny that heritage.

    President Thomas Jefferson: “God who gave us life gave us
    liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a
    conviction that these liberties are the gift of God?”

    President Andrew Jackson called the Bible; “the Rock upon which
    our republic rests.”

    President John Adams said; “We have no government armed with
    power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and
    religion.”

    Patrick Henry said, “It is when a people forget God, that
    tyrants forge their chains.”

    George Washington, in his Farewell Address said; “Of all the
    dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and
    morality are indispensable supports.”

    Alexis de Tocqueville, in Democracy in America, wrote
    extensively on the relationship between the Christian religion and liberty
    in American: “America is great because she is good. If America ceases to be
    good, America will cease to be great.”

    It's enough to make one wonder… does Barack Hussein Obama
    realize that every stab he takes at the Christian heritage of this great
    nation is a blow to the very foundation of our nation… a blow to freedom
    our personal liberty?

    Does he simply hate Christianity… does he hate the United
    States… or both?

    Barack Hussein Obama simply hasn't denied the Christian heritage of
    this nation. He has used his presidency to bad-mouth America itself at
    every turn.

    He said, “America has been arrogant.” thus giving our enemies
    and our allies every reason to believe that we are less resolved to defend
    ourselves and hence more vulnerable to attack.

    Following his inauguration, he ordered Gitmo closed, within a
    year, despite the fact that it was (and is) the best possible facility for
    detaining terrorists.

    His first presidential phone call was to Mahmoud Abbas, leader
    of the Fatah Party in the Palestine territory. According to press reports he
    told Abbas; “This is my first phone call to a foreign leader and I'm making
    it only hours after I took office.”

    His first one–on-one TV interview was not with NBC or ABC, but
    with Al Arabiya, where he said: “My job to the Muslim world is to
    communicate that the Americans are not your enemy. We sometimes make
    mistakes. We have not been perfect.”

    He immediately issued an Executive Order halting military
    commissions which resulted in charges being dropped against Abd al-Rahim
    al-Nashiri, the animal accused of planning numerous terrorist attacks
    against Americans, including the USS Cole bombing in which 17 U.S. sailors
    died.

    While treating the Queen of England with casual familiarity, he
    obsequiously bowed from the waist to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, leader
    of a Muslim nation that won’t permit Christian worship within its borders…
    under penalty of death.

    Are Obama's denunciations of America, in words and deeds,
    simply faux-pas or do they show, as Tammy Bruce said, “malevolence toward
    this country, which is unabated.”

    Does it really matter?

    Barack Hussein Obama's words and actions clearly rise well
    beyond the level of “bad behavior” and our Founding Fathers left us a remedy
    for presidents guilty of bad behavior.

    The Obama presidency is the disease; Article II, Section 4 of
    the Constitution, is the cure.

    Good read!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/John-C-Davidson/100000093579423 John C. Davidson

    You're the one that implied I was taking out my butt. So, what other conclusion should I make from your moniker. You have nothing interesting to say, Your rhetoric is filled with filthy comments, ass hole.

  • davarino

    Bubba, you make David's point.

    “so these Tea Party folks are largely misinformed and peppered with bigots, xenophobes and weirdos who like to carry automatic weapons to public events.”

    Good job, you have stuck to the art of polical war. Now its my turn, let me see if I can do it.

    Your parents must have been hippies during the 60s….no thats not it, thats to infantile. Your a constitution hating, America hating, freedom hating commie. You want to make excuses for the very things that sunk California and is threatening to sink America. The only way the blue states have been able to send money to the red states is through deficit spending, which will soon ruin your state. Thanks for the money sucker, now suck on this. Whether you like it or not us xenophobes are taking our country back from the socialist commies who are slowly bleeding us to death.

    How did I do? Maybe a little over the top but I think I did pretty good.

    : )

  • Lostmaiden

    This is one of the best editorials I have ever read, the battle and the defense has been spelled out for us to take our Country back to the basics of Our Constitution and the founding Fathers. We need to adopt this strategy.
    We are a great Nation and all of our people are important to us, we need to stand together on this front to tell Washington that we will not be led in to the mouth's of the enemy no matter what their party is, it does not represent the will or lives of the People of The United States of America. For if one class falls all classes' will follow behind it.

  • Linda

    I agree with all of the above. We are too often “preaching to the choir”. Dick Morris has the right idea with the way he is targeting the young people with the realities of the health care bill. But looking at the whole picture, I know someone who has a learning disabillity in math, cannot get a GED, able to work, but cannot get a job even at McDonald's without it. There are so many people in the lower working middle class who cannot afford health care. No one should get it FREE, but people like my friend's daughter making 11 dollars an hour, cannot pay 400 or 500 dollars a month for health care. I am TOTALLY opposed to the Congressional Health care bill, but I just hope that when the conservatives gain power again, that these people will not be forgotten.

  • Robert Bernier

    Wow! Read this one. It is really good. And this gentleman says it just like it is.

    This venerable and much honored WW II vet is well known in Hawaii
    for his seventy-plus years of service to patriotic organizations and causes all over the country. A humble man without a political bone in his body, he has never spoken out before about a government official, until now. He dictated this letter to a friend, signed it and mailed it to the president.

    “Bubba, you make David's point. “so these Tea Party folks are largely misinformed and peppered with bigots, xenophobes and weirdos who like to carry automatic weapons to public events.” Good job, you have stuck to the art of polical war.”

    That's not political war, it's my insulting, marginalizing shorthand and it came at the end of a larger paragraph. I honestly don't understand the tea party movement…the extremes always stand out.

    “Now its my turn, let me see if I can do it. Your parents must have been hippies during the 60s….no thats not it, thats to infantile. Your a constitution hating, America hating, freedom hating commie. You want to make excuses for the very things that sunk California and is threatening to sink America.”

    Yeah…riiiiight. I think you are confusing the “art of political war” with just being a douchebag. Sure, you are suppose to appeal to people emotions and the things they care about….sure, you're suppose to make policy relate to the average citizen…and of course, you're suppose to explain why what you want is good and what your opponent wants is bad….all this is true. But you can't just lie and make shit up…lol. It's not “political” to try to smear your opponents with lies and misinformation…it's wrong.

    “The only way the blue states have been able to send money to the red states is through deficit spending, which will soon ruin your state. Thanks for the money sucker, now suck on this.”

    I'm not talking about some kind of state spending…it's on the federal level and it's federal taxes. “my” state…lol…I live here…true, but I don't know what you want me to do about the State Government..

    “Whether you like it or not us xenophobes are taking our country back from the socialist commies who are slowly bleeding us to death. How did I do? Maybe a little over the top but I think I did pretty good. : )”

    A xenophobe would be someone who fears immigrants or aliens from other planets. Look, if Obama was some Manchurian communist plant and part of a world-wide conspiracy that stretches back to the birth of Marx…then we're already fucked. Obama should be clamping down on the media and shuffling you off to a concentration camp any day now. But Nope, in three years, long after we should all be in breadlines (and you executed for your capitalist ideals) you will all be screaming the same things and trying to get a Republican elected. So admit that…calling Obama a commie is just you practicing your abomination version of “political war”. Most of you don't actually fear the country falling apart, you're just sharpening your dishonest knives with an eye toward the future…like a douchebag.

  • davarino

    Bubba, once again you show that you hate babies and want to eat their hearts, like the blood thirsty bastard you are. Why do you hate babies, what did they ever do to you.

    And he called me a douchebag, he makes my heart cry waaaa. People, can you believe this Bubba guy? He is really a mean and hate filled person, I cant believe there are such people.

    People of America you need to be on the look out for such people because they want to eat your babies.

    Who says we cant lie and cheat and do the same shit the left does.

    Enjoy, douchebag hahahahahahahah now its your turn

  • bubba4

    Um…yeah…”my turn”. Sigh

    I guess you can just lie and make stuff up…dishonest people do it everyday. You're just getting silly now.

    Lorenzo,

    If you want to publish a book and write a thesis, I suggest you develop a website ( they are free to set up on search engines such as Google) and save all of us the agony of blistering our finger on the page down in order to read comments from people who understand purpose of a string of comments.

    As you can see, not many people are responding to your comment and are signing up for your campaign to impeach Obama probably because they don't want to encourage you to copy/paste articles on a string that is intended for thoughtfull comments — not a book or huge pettition drive.

    Although I admire your determination to practice your constitutional duty as an American citizen, I surely don't appreciate an unsolicited text that I have to unconvientently scroll though.

    Sincerely,

    Bush-should-have-been-impeached

  • bushlikesdick12

    re:

    ~~Righty's don't cut budgets either! Righty's run up the deficit where as Dems try to pay off the debt unlike the irresponsible spending habits of the generators of our senseless war in Iraq. ~~

    It isn't interesting for you because it speaks of facts back with reliable sources unlike the tabloid crap that you choose to believe without substance.

    Surely if you and Horowitz speak the truth, it shouldn't be a problem to pull up a reliable source to confirm.

    Even FOX news knows better than to publish this garbage.

    Let's say FOX made a statement such as “~no one has run up the deficit than Democrat Presidents have~~

    They won't say that because the rest of the nation will take them to the mat on it because it is so easy to disprove.

    All they can really say is that DEM raise taxes with the convience of leaving out the part that Republicans spend as much if not more that Dems without having a plan to pay for it.

    It is no different then having a wife complain to you because you have no money in the bank to pay for her spending sprees or you don't make enough to keep up.

    There is no difference and you surely can't prove otherwise.

    I use foul language on this website because it gives others a clear indication that all that clowns like you can do to respond about your lies is to use the classic fallacy of Ad-Homien.

    Thanks for making that as clear as possilble

  • Name

    I make 10.50 an hour and pay 500 a month for insurance to cover my family. My husband is unemployed and has had three heart attacks, so I also pay out almost 200 a month of prescription copays. I have a mortgage, car payment, utitlity bills and groceries to buy. I live within my means, which means doing without the bling and big house that everyone seems so accustomed to.

  • Proxywar

    My message to the American people…

    Ask yourselves…

    Did johnsons war on poverty help You out?
    Did FDR'S new deal help You out?
    Is Your Medicade or Medicare solvent or insolvent?
    Is Your social security solvent or insolvent?
    Did Bush and Obama's bailout, bail you out?
    If You didn't enjoy light-progressivism under president Bush why fall in love with fullblown-progressivism under Obama?
    Is it not the government taking away Your student loans?
    Are conservatives the ones forcing jail-time on poor-people that won't be able to afford health-care-insurence? Or on hard-working healthy folks just trying to scrape by? Disagreeing with my policies does not equal jail-time for You. This is America the land of CHOICE. If You don't like my policies you can OPT-OUT.

    The government is the MAN. Conservatives aim to keep the MAN's foot off your neck.

  • Brian Lowe

    Mr.Horowitz,

    I humbly suggest the following motto for the Republican Party in pushing the populist agenda you suggest. “Good results, not just good intentions.”
    What do you think?

    Brian Lowe
    Manasquan, NJ

  • robertlovretich

    A good start. You can also use Saul Alinsky's “Rules for Radicals” against the left, ust as it has been used against conservatives. Machiavelli's “The Prince” is also worth studying.

    Alinsky's goal was to transfer power from the haves to the have nots. In reality the result is a transfer of power from the haves, the rich, to the new haves, the government. The have nots remain have nots, dependent on a pwerful government they can only hope will be benevolent.

    In transferring power by redistributing wealth they end up destroyng the wealth they seek to transfer.

    What conservatives need to do is to teach the have nots how to become financially independent haves.

    Alinsky and his supporters forget the old Chineese proverb, “Feed a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and yopu feed him for life. That should be our goal.

  • davarino

    Oh you mean like the global warming nut bags, Dan Rather…etc. ?

    Do you have anything positive to say about anything on FPM, or are you sent here to just be negative about everything?

  • davarino

    Dude, although I agree with you, you obviously did not read David's article about being short and sweet, and to the point. You lose people when you get wordy like above. Boil it down, bring it home, make your point.

  • lorenzobouchard

    Discus,

    The item was for you and due to your past snide comments and not my
    writings, but as you know it was the announcement of Impeachment by someone
    else.
    As to the repetition on the site of this item, I believe that it is just the
    usual ploys of closet Communists, to discourage and irritate people against
    thr concept of Impeachment of Obama.

    I've had over 40 years of conflict against Communists and presently
    Islamists, both Totalitarian Ideologies.

    An early web site of mine is titled, “Guardians of Democract, a Mystical
    View”. http://mypage.direct.ca/l/lbouchar/

    Communists should check how Islam eradicates them when in power. Iran had
    an active Communist party. Thousands have been imprisoned and executed over
    a 30 year span. Its also presently happening now.

    The Communist alignment to assist and alibi Islam's activities, is as stupid
    as Stalin's greement with Hitler in the early stage of WW2.

    Great read.

    Perhaps rather than looking at the President, you should be looking at the party in control of Congress?

    Right vs. Left, Democrat vs. Republican is a waste of time.

    Neither political party is willing to follow the restrictions placed on the federal government by the people, i.e. the U.S. Constitution.

    “After you pull your butt plug out of your ass in amazment, you will see that every other Republican president raised the deficit more than their Democrat predecessor thus spending off the saved money of the Democrat.”

    Couldn't have been the other way around could it? Republican deficits preventing further spending by Democrats? BTW, which party controlled congress during the final two years of GWB's presidency?

    “Included in FDR's deficit spending was the biggest war in U.S. history along with the most impressive progressive policies ever.”

    Your ideology is clear from this comment.

    The facts are that progressive/socialist/collectivist policies are usually advanced by the Democrats/Leftists with complete disregard for the U.S. Constitution. Not that the Republican party has not disregarded the Constitution – they do so for different policies.

    Republicans have their own political problems and corruption is evident in both parties – as is readily apparent when digging into the facts of the financial crisis of the past few years.

    Neither party has demanded full prosecution of all who have committed criminal acts in relation to financial mis-management, blind regulation, etc. We have bank regulators who have violated the law still working as regulators. We have bank executive officers allowing their banks to operate while technically bankrupt, this is a criminal act in many states. The list of blatant illegal behavior is long and both political parties would rather play the “extend and pretend” game rather than dealing with the criminal behavior and obvious financial problems facing the U.S.

    I'm no activist; I'm just another disorganized, disgusted conservative. Washington is seizing control of everything, and will soon have power of life or death over every one of us, declaring who gets medical care and who doesn't. This will be good for the politically connected, but bad for taxpayers and the indebted next generation. Congressional leaders openly mock the notion that the Constitution limits Federal power. Thus we transition into a framework of tyranny. What do you say in a world gone mad? Quite honestly, I can't understand why the people haven't marched into Washington and tarred and feathered every member of Congress. But too many people don't “get it”; they don't understand what they're forfeiting, or the punishment to come once liberty is lost. So we slip and slide in the wrong direction, following the lead of fools and scoundrels and lemmings.

    I'll testify to the truth when the opportunity arises. I'll fight where I see my opportunity. But I admit I'm lost. Not sure which battle front to head for. But I'll stand ready to do what I can.

    In war, using the enemy's tactics usually brings defeat, since he is more experienced than you in the use of those tactics and will be able to counter them. The key to successful war is the use of a tactic no one has seen before.

    I have watched conservative after conservative play the “underdog” card and in every instance he was beaten, usually by a derisive media that ripped him to pieces. That's why they don't do it anymore.

    In modern politics you are fighting on a battlefield that was laid out by the left for over 100 years. The country itself is a leftist creation (sorry conservatives but the Founders died two hundred years ago and their creation along with them). The cities were designed and built by progressives complete with ghettos and public transportation. The two party system that is really one party with its own carefully designed internal “opponent” is a leftist creation. The Federal Reserve, the monotone media, public education are all leftist creations.

    The land once known for its individualists is now home to the greatest parasites on earth. Two thirds of the most bloated budget in world history transfers money from those who produce it to those who don't. The states redistribute what the feds don't steal.

    The American Revolution in 1776 was a glorious success while the French Revolution ended in tyranny. Why? Because 18th century Americans were fierce individualists who experienced the creation of wealth first hand. They experienced life as something that they controlled. They saw their lot in life as the result of their own decisions.

    By comparison, the French were always dependent upon royalty and government for their livelihoods. Their society was one of permissions, not rights. Their revolution was doomed from the start despite being motivated by many of the same ideas that motivated the American revolution.

    Modern Americans are like the 18th century French. They exist by permission, not right, and there is no power on earth that can change that in a single election cycle. The real battle is cultural and will have to be waged for at least as long as the hundred year siege of the progressives for the soul of America.

    If you start now, your great grandchildren may be born into a free country, but as for you and your children, you will never know freedom.

    What's needed is a Saul Alinsky for the conservative movement. Someone who can provide didactic materials to help organize it. David's editorial is a good start in the right direction. Glenn Beck is talking about devoting part of his program to do “community organizing” for the conservative government. Some author particularly one with “trench experience” could be instrumental. A book along these lines would certainly become a best seller.

    With 700 dollars or so a month you have a mortgage and a car?

    We can't all live in an area with such cheap prices. My monthly rent in LA is more than you make in a month. If I moved to where you were though, I wouldn't be able to find work.

    Alinsky's goal was to transfer power from the haves to the have nots. In reality the result is a transfer of power from the haves, the rich, to the new haves, the government. The have nots remain have nots, dependent on a pwerful government they can only hope will be benevolent.

    Read "America's 30 Year's War: Who Is Winning?" by Hungarian historian and pianist Balint Vazsonyi (1934-2003). Vazsonyi brings unique perspectives to bear on the political and cultural forces at work today, as seen through the eyes of a Hungarian immigrant who lived through both the Nazi regime and the Soviet occupation. He sees strking paralells between his European experiences and what was happening in the late 1990s. He died before the Obama regime, but anticipates it in this outstanding book. You can order it through amazon.com for a penny, plus postage.

    The new persecuted class are smokers. The politically correct persecution of a minority. Next up, fat people because they are taking away "ownership" of our bodies and minds.
