August 3: The Most Important Day in America

The beginning of that roll-back ( against Obamacare and the Progressives agenda.  BB) does not occur on November 2, but much earlier.  On August 3, 2010, Missouri voters will be tasked with the responsibility of taking the first stand against Obamacare, the progressive panacea, by voting for the Missouri Health Care Freedom Act (MHCFA) in a public referendum.

An Issue Worthy of National Attention

MHCFA comes from a state that has elected the president in every election since 1904, excepting Eisenhower’s second term and the 2008 election of Obama.  Bellwhether or weathervane, the “fly-over” state that mirrors national demographics represents the first chance for American voters to display their disapproval with Obamacare.  Other states filed lawsuits or passed legislation, but those actions only indirectly represent the American electorate. MHCFA will be voted on by the public at large (and incidentally, allows conservatives to vote “Yes,” for once.)

This public referendum could make or break the ground swell of opposition to the progressive agenda.  Failure of MHCFA would provide a field-day for progressive media, and dishearten many voters for the midterms.  On the other hand, success of MHCFA by large margins would have the opposite affect.

We can be sure that the dirty politics practiced by progressive organizations will flood the state.  ACORN reorganized as MORE in Missouri, OFA will certainly provide leadership, and groups like Project Vote will definitely mess with polling.  Political lawsuits have already begun.  Attorney “Chip” Gentry filed a lawsuit to block the August 3 vote.  Whether he has connections to any of the progressive organizations targeting the Missouri referendum is another question (though I am sure we will learn soon enough).

The bottom line is that MHCFA represents the first battle in the war against Obamacare.  Organizations that support future referendums on Obamacare in Arizona, Florida, Oklahoma and other states would do well to support Missouri in its endeavors. Support from freedom loving Americans in the rest of the Union would also be greatly appreciated.  (We MUST  do all we can to support the Missourian of our choice who is running for office.  Unfortunately there are two Republicans running against one Obama flunkey and this may very well split the vote and  lose the Senate seat to a Republican.   However I am sending a campaign donation to my favorite and hope he puts out enough ads for the Missouri Health Care Freedom Act (MHCFA) in a public referendum. to get the loyal American voters out.  BB)

A Challenge to Blunt and Purgason

August 3 represents the primary date for Missouri, as well.  A Senate seat is up for grabs, and crucial to regaining control of Congress from the progressives.  Two Republican candidates are fighting it out against progressive-trust-fund baby, Robin Carnahan.  Both should be championing MHCFA as the most important issue prior to the primary.

Roy Blunt has served in the US House of Representatives since 1997.  As such, he represents, unfairly or not, the establishment.  None of that need matter if he champions the most important referendum in the country.  If Blunt campaigns for this issue in Missouri, he could prove to Missouri voters that he would be a worthy representative of their state.  He must find some connection to the grassroots conservatives in Missouri should he win the nomination.

Chuck Purgason has served in the Missouri legislature since 1997.  While Purgason is a favorite of the grassroots, his electability against Carnahan is an issue.

Also on this day in 1923 one of our best Presidents because he was  truly a no hands on small government President, Calvin Coolidge, was sworn into office.

John Calvin Coolidge, Jr. (July 4, 1872 – January 5, 1933) was the 30th President of the United States (1923–1929). A Republican lawyer from Vermont, Coolidge worked his way up the ladder of Massachusetts state politics, eventually becoming governor of that state. His actions during the Boston Police Strike of 1919 thrust him into the national spotlight. Soon after, he was elected as the 29th Vice President in 1920 and succeeded to the Presidency upon the sudden death of Warren G. Harding in 1923. Elected in his own right in 1924, he gained a reputation as a small-government conservative.

Coolidge restored public confidence in the White House after the scandals of his predecessor’s administration, and left office with considerable popularity.[2] As a Coolidge biographer put it, “He embodied the spirit and hopes of the middle class, could interpret their longings and express their opinions. That he did represent the genius of the average is the most convincing proof of his strength.”[3] Many later criticized Coolidge as part of a general criticism of laissez-faire government.[4] His reputation underwent a renaissance during the Ronald Reagan Administration,[5] but the ultimate assessment of his presidency is still divided between those who approve of his reduction of the size of government programs and those who believe the federal government should be more involved in regulating and controlling the economy.

….the 30th President of the United States, Calvin Coolidge, was sworn into office (August 3, 1923); although the words of “Silent Cal” lend credence to the modern movement in opposition to progressive-statism.  Take a gander:

Civilization and profit go hand in hand.

Don’t expect to build up the weak by pulling down the strong.

There is no dignity quite so impressive, and no one independence quite so important, as living within your means.

Collecting more taxes than is absolutely necessary is legalized robbery.

Perhaps one of the most important accomplishments of my administration has been minding my own business.

To live under the American Constitution is the greatest political privilege that was ever accorded to the human race.

President Coolidge may be the most under-rated president in American history,
