POLICING THE THANKSGIVING POLITICS
“If you thought you were going to get a chance to sit around the table and forget about the craziness of this world and enjoy some good quality time with your family, think again. Organizing for Action — formerly President Obama’s campaign engine Obama for America — is calling on its membership to sell socialized medicine at the family dinner table. They have created a series of talking points and persuasive tactics to try to convince their loved ones to sign up for Obamacare.”
And so warns the Tea Party Patriots, the nation’s largest umbrella group for the grass-roots movement. They’ve developed a “Thanksgiving Toolkit” for those who may encounter progressive ideas right in the middle of feast and fellowship. Indeed, the eight-page strategy covers facts about the Affordable Care Act, plus suggested conversations to have with out-of-town guests and older family members, among other things.
The organizers have a warning about the aforementioned progressive activist group, calling it “very effective with elections. We can’t discount that ability when it comes to pushing legislative issues. And in this instance, we have a bigger mountain to climb to repeal this law and save America from even more turmoil.”
