WASHINGTON – When John Boehner reconvenes the House of Representatives next month, he’s going to have some mail.
So will every other Republican member.
Boehner won’t like his.
How the other Republican members respond to the tens of thousands of letters they get will determine whether Boehner will remain as speaker.
The Dump Boehner Campaign, a project designed by Joseph Farah, founder of WND.com, is off to a blazing start. Within minutes of its announcement Monday evening, thousands of letters calling on Republican House members to find another leader were already being generated.
In less than 24 hours, orders for nearly 200,000 letters to Republican members of the House were placed, rivaling the launch of the historic “pink slips” campaign of 2010.
“The response has been unprecedented, amazing and gratifying,” said Farah. “I’ve never seen anything quite like this since our historic ‘Pink Slip Campaign’ that ultimately generated more than 9 and a half million letters in 2010. Americans are angry about Boehner’s betrayal of the voters who gave him a bigger majority in the House and Republicans control of the Senate. This could prove to be Boehner’s undoing.”
That depends, of course, on how 246 House Republicans react to the outpouring of letters generated by the campaign – letters individually addressed to each member and personalized with the sender’s name and delivered to congressional offices by FedEx.
“We saw the same thing in 2010,” recalled Farah. “People were angry then. They may be angrier now. It is as if elections have no consequences when Republicans vote.”
A sampling of just how upset people are has been posted online, with abundant promises of “I’m in,” and “Do it.”
The plan had been announced only a day before, with Farah writing that the most effective method of reaching out to Congress is individual letters to members.
His plan facilitates that.
His program allows people to send all those letters, with their own names and addresses, all for the one price of $29.95 via FedEx.
He added, “From previous campaigns we know this approach prompts members to talk about the boxes of letters that are coming into their offices each day. And that’s exactly what we want to do with the DUMP BOEHNER CAMPAIGN – a grass-roots lobbying effort that can channel your outrage into effective and meaningful action.”
He said what can be guaranteed is that members “will see, hear and feel your participation in it.”
“You can order your letters sent today, and they will be ready for delivery when the new Congress reconvenes in January. It would be great to see thousands or, better yet, tens of thousands flooding in that first week. That will make an impression that cannot be ignored by Republican members of the House,” he explained.
“I’m excited. Now it’s up to you. I’ve already ordered my letters. I’ve even secured the domain names DumpBoehnerCampaign.com and DumpBoehnerNow.com for social media dissemination. Tell your friends,” he wrote.
The letter explains to members of the U.S. House that two issues have “prompted Americans to turn in droves to the Republican Party in November 2014 – Barack Obama’s blatantly unconstitutional executive action to provide amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, and the deliberately deceptive restructuring of America’s health-care system through Obamacare, which threatens to unravel the greatest health delivery system in the world.”
Pointing out that Republicans before the election “solemnly vowed to STOP this lame-duck president,” the letter continues, “Now you have the power, right and duty to stop him.”
“But it won’t happen with John Boehner leading you. You know this to be true. The trillion-dollar budget deal is just the latest proof that Boehner is not capable of leading the House to victory during this critical period.”
It calls on members to replace him.
The campaign notes that the political state in America is worse than any time since the Civil War, with a broken economy, piled up national debt, abuse of executive power, the judiciary out of control and the moral framework under attack.
But, the campaign explains, “the American people have demonstrated twice in four years that they realize something has gone awry – overwhelmingly voting for the Republican Party in two midterm elections because it clearly campaigned on returning to first principles.”
Only to be betrayed by Republican leaders.
The campaign is, it explains, the way to get hard-copy letters to every Republican in the House of Representatives.
DON’T BE YELLOW: DUMP BOEHNER NOW!
Dear Rep. _____,
Two huge issues, more than any others, prompted Americans to turn in droves to the Republican Party in November 2014 – Barack Obama’s blatantly unconstitutional executive action to provide amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, and the deliberately deceptive restructuring of America’s health-care system through Obamacare, which threatens to completely unravel the greatest health delivery system in the world.
Before the election, you and virtually every Republican running for Congress solemnly vowed to STOP this lame-duck president who is so determined to do whatever he wants, the Constitution be damned – while essentially daring Congress to “Try and stop me.”
NOW YOU HAVE THE POWER, RIGHT AND DUTY TO STOP HIM. But it won’t happen with John Boehner leading you. You know this to be true. The trillion-dollar budget deal is just the latest proof that Boehner is not capable of leading the House to victory during this critical period. He must be replaced.
Please act as if your country depends on what you do right now – because it truly does.
Thank you – the nation is watching.
