Holy Cow! 38 states bucking the US Gov on healthcare law. Good find Bruce.

I've been listening to the "conservative" radio stations here in TX and they're already proposing a method on how to deal with today's vote -

Starting this fall, vote those out of office who voted in favor of today's bill. Then the first thing to do once the newly elected officials take office in January is to repeal the bill passed today. First off, we have to get off all of our collective duffs and ensure that we vote in those officials who listen to their constituents, NOT those who line their pockets. It's up to us as citizens to elect the "right" people to office.

That's my $0.02 worth and I'm going to stop here because I'm already taking medicine for my high blood pressure. Anything more and I'll have to have the doc go back in and increase the dosage instead of it going the other way.

But it is up to us -- collectively -- to do the right thing this fall. And I am proud that one of those dem's voting against the bill came from right up the street here in Texas. He listened to his consituents -- the voters!

Gloating may turn to disbelief come fall, the demoncrates might have put the final nail in their political coffins. We can only pray that the damage to the country will be short lived and repaired with-our lifetimes.

38 states believe there is something unconstitutional about this bill on different levels. so there just may be something to it. when was the last time that happened?

there are some good ideas in this bill but way to many bad ideas and corruption not to mention the constitutionality of it.

People are angry. Im angry. I'm conservative to the bone. I dont agree with 99% of the garbage that comes out of Washington these days. Matter fact someone would have to enlighten me on the 1% I would agree with.

We have a rule on here that politics should not be discussed,,,, but this (like so many others have said) is not normal politics. Ronn your not alone in your beliefs for one bit. I do not want to anger either side of this discussion so I am just asking that we keep it professional. Keep the racial comments and such out of it.

What I would like to see. Being a 30 yr old and never once sending emails to my senators etc. would be a link to a site or information on how I can send my thoughts to elected officials. Surely one of these sites exist. Just want someone to point me and others that dont post or ask these type questions in the right direction to making our voice heard. We can yell and scream on here all day and it doesnt really accomplish anything. (besides venting purposes, which all of us need to do every now and then)

What im asking is where do we go from here?

Who do I email? How can I make my voice heard on something other than a deer hunting community?

SouthernMan I enjoyed your post. The government is not the answer. To many folks that COULD work for a living choose not to only because they dont WANT to.

The Tea Party is one place your voice will be heard.
Tea Party Patriots

The National Republic Congressional Committee is another place
NRCC - National Republican Congressional Committee

Write your Governor
your senators
your Representatives

The most important thing all of us can do now is make sure you get all your friends/relatives
Registered to Vote (if they're not) so we can send washington a message in the next Elections.

As I think of other org's to write I'll post them.

You should also write Tennessee's Attorney General Robert E. Cooper Jr.,
Tenn. has already joined 38 other states that will file law suits to get the healthcare bill repealed.
Everyone should write their Attorneys General to suppoprt them if they are joining the other state filing suit or to encourage them to join.

I've written Vt.'s attorney General William Sorrell
Vt.'s Governor Jim Douglas
Sen. Bernie Sanders
Sen. Patrick Leahy
Vt. Rep. Peter Welch
The Tea Party
The Republican Congressional Committee

Heres another site that is helpful in contacting your representatives at both the State and National levels. With most issues, they have templates that make it easy to communicate your ideas clearly or you can write your own message. The group is called Americans for Prosperity. I hope someone finds this helpful.
