Representative John Boozman, Arkansas’ only Republican lawmaker released the following statement yesterday.

Boozman Statement on White House Internet Monitoring

Washington, Aug 7

U.S. Representative John Boozman (R-AR) today issued the following statement regarding White House Internet Monitoring efforts:


“The Obama Administration has requested that e-mails and internet materials produced by private citizens that are critical of the President’s policies be reported to an e-mail address at the White House.


The White House website states:  “If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.”


American citizens should be free to criticize the policies of the President or any other elected official, including me, without fearing that the criticism will be policed and monitored by the government.


The First Amendment specifically protects speech, and our Constitutional rights must be protected when we use the internet.


I call on President Obama to disable this e-mail address and I ask that he stop soliciting this kind of surveillance on private citizens.”

No such press release was issued by Arkansas’ three Democratic Representatives or two Democratic Senators. I guess Marion Berry, Vic Snyder, Mike Ross, Blanche Lincoln, and Mark Pryor have no problem with our President soliciting American citizens to spy on their neighbors and inform government officials of any dissent to official White House policy.

You can help Rep. Boozman get his message across to Obama and The White House by clicking this link and email it to flag@whitehouse.gov.

Arkansas GOP launches Health Care Action Center

Finally!  It looks like the Arkansas Republican Party has decided to use its new website for more than a fancy newsletter.  Yesterday the state party announced its Health Care Action Center which places weapons in the hands of voters to war against Democratic attempts to impose a government run health care system on the American people.

You’ll find phone numbers to every Congressmen’s and both Senators’ offices along with pdf files containing suggested scripts for phone calls.  Another pdf file on that page lists “Health Care Talking Points” to combat the non-stop rhetoric spewed from the White House and their Democratic allies.

Another page linked to the Action Center is a file containing 5 sample letters to the editor.  You can take one of these word for word, use it as a starting point to write your own, write some combination of the 5, or start from scratch, but please take the time to communicate your desire to stop the government takeover of our health care system to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette in a letter to the editor today.

You can also find email links to every member of Arkansas’ congressional delegation in the Action Center.  We need to overload their email systems and make them understand we don’t want a government run health care system.  The party has included a link to suggested text to include in your emails, tailored to each Representative and Senator.  (I just spoke with Congressman Ross’ office in Pine Bluff and was told there is no truth to the internet rumors that Ross has sold out to the Obama administration.)

The President and his Socialist allies are pushing this power grab hard.  Obama was rumored to have told one Democratic Senator who opposes Obamacare, “You’re going to ruin my presidency.”  Look for full-scale Chicago style politics on Pennsylvania Avenue over the next few weeks.  To combat the sure to come mob style strongarm tactics they’ll employ, we need everyone to do their part.  Make Arkansas Democrats afraid to sell out to Socialism by letting them know they’ll be out of a job in 2010 if they do!
