What Can You Do About The Ominous Obama-Care Health Care "Reform" Mess?

Do you ever feel like congress is going to do the wrong thing regarding health care no matter how many calls you make? Do you feel helpless in the face of this assault on our liberties?

Well you are not helpless.

There is something you can do. Support Scott Brown.

Who is Scott Brown? Brown is a state senator in Massachusetts running in the special election to replace Ted Kennedy in the U.S. Senate.

Can he win? Sure. I'll admit, I've long believed Massachusetts to be a lost cause. A clear majority of residents of that state (okay, okay Commonwealth) have consistently reelected two of the worst U.S. senators (Kennedy and Kerry). However, this election has special circumstances. First it is a special election with nothing else drawing voters to the polls. Also, his Democrat opponent is a seriously flawed candidate who is not generating much enthusiasm. Lastly, and most importantly, the fact that this seat would either continue or end the filibuster proof Democrat majority may be enough to ensure a large Republican turnout.

Bottom line, it is your money so only contribute if you can afford. I guarantee the cost of Obama-care will far exceed any contribution you might make.Click here to donate to Scott Brown's campaign.

Want to know more about the candidate?
Here is a link to his website.
His Twitter address is @ScottBrownMA
Here is a Youtube video of him echoing John F. Kennedy's position on taxes.

Don't know if it should matter much, but he was Cosmopolitan magazine's sexiest man in 1982 and his daughter Ayla is a college basketball player and was a finalist on American Idol.

Obviously an uphill battle, but I actually think the national party is playing this right. This race will have to be run under the radar, hoping Democrats dont show up. Pouring in money raises awareness - I think Brown needs to stay low key. Those who support him know about the race and will show up anyways.
