Stop The Cap and Trade Bill Now!

1. A Strategy to Trend on Twitter

The Cap and Trade bill that recently passed the House by a narrow margin, is a true crisis for freedom in America and the world. We have got to make sure it dominates every form of media as the key issue at hand until it is soundly defeated!

The election in Iran and the subsequent Mousavi protests made for three of the trending topics on Twitter at any given moment for several days- forcing the mainstream media to increase its coverage, as Twitter is an excellent gauge of the public consciousness and interest.

Until we can break through to at least one trending topic with the Cap and Trade issue, the media will continue to ignore the magnitude of this national crisis. In order to do so, we must settle on one "hashtag" for now and we must Tweet it often!

I nominate #C&T because it is the shortest- leaving room for more commentary and links (which is crucial in Twitter's 140 character format), it is unique, and it neatly sums up and alludes to the words "Cap and Trade."

It is also editorially neutral- which will invite "progressives" to use it as well when referring to Cap and Trade. It invites everyone to the conversation- a conversation we desperately need to have before our freedoms evaporate.

We have got to Tweet and ReTweet frequently about #C&T and use the hashtag.

2. Call The "RINO Tr8ters"!

And let them know you will be supporting whichever real conservative decides to challenge them in a Republican primary for 2010.

Call them now:

Bono Mack (CA) 202-225-5330
Castle (DE) 202-225-4165
Kirk (IL) 202-225-4835
Lance (NJ) 202-225-5361
Lobiondo (NJ) 202-225-6572
McHugh (NY) 202-225-4611
Reichart (WA) 202-225-7761
Chris Smith (NJ) 202-225-3765

3. Start calling your Senators now!

Call early and call often.

We have to aggressively kill this bill right now!



  2. Thanks for the links. I got a good laugh when I saw them!

  3. THEY CANNOT CHANGE THEIR VOTE. This is a mistake. Feel free to call them and express your opinion of their vote, but it CANNOT be changed. Get to work on the Senate. Thats where the fight is now.

  4. Thanks Scott. Just fixed that. Can you please share a source or explanation about their inability to change their vote?

  5. Cool site! I especially like the flag.

    I hope this cap & trade bill does not go through, some canadian parties have been trying to get this type of thing passed. If our largest trading partner caves the pressure will be on use to follow along.

  6. Thanks! Yeah, your government and my government have been an awefully bad influence on each other, huh?
