Democrats: Take Action Against Republican Obstruction

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Take action in August!

Below, I wrote about the paths the Republicans have chosen…the paths of violence and discord, of obstruction and power.

Are you just going to read about it? Are you going to read from the sidelines, stare at your computer screen, and hope it all gets better? Or are you going to take action and try to make the change happen.

We've got the month of August. What are you going to do with it?

  1. Defending progress
    After what happened to Congressman Doggett at Randall's in Westlake hills I decided to attend his townhall today at the VA center on Montopolis.

    It does make a difference to have enough progressives in attendance to offset the passion of the conservatives.  The one hour discussion was relatively tame and actually enlightening.

    It seemed to me that most people are for reform, but need to be convinced that the changes will actually reduce costs and improve quality.

  2. Guadalupe County activitists distributed
    leaflets and presented signs to passersby in front of Congressman Cuellar's office in Seguin today and I was among them. We had about 10 activists from Comal and Guadalupe and found a pretty good reception by the folks driving by giving us thumbs up and friendly honks. Given that Guadalupe went 65/35 for McCain I consider that encouraging.

    • yay for you guys
      the congressman was in la vernia and wanted to make a trip up to thank y'all for the support but his schedule wouldn't allow it.

      i heard the “honk for health care reform” signs got a big response.

      y'all have juevos grandes for getting on the street in Seguin. thanks for the support!
