A Golden Opportunity For Conservatives

You all know how to link, don’t you?

After, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the IRS scandal, NSA spying, and the many transgressions of the Obama administration, finally we might have an issue where we seem to be getting some traction.

The general public is actually starting to show some dissatisfaction with Obamacare.  While most people are either incapable of understanding,  or just don’t take the time to understand, how the previous Obama scandals have affected them, this Obamacare debacle is easy for them to grasp. Especially when they see their health insurance cancelled and how much more health coverage is now going to cost them.

The other Obama fiascos only directly affected select groups of people, but Obamacare is going to directly impact a very large percentage of the population.  Just about everyone will either be negatively affected, or will know someone personally, that will be.  Finally, the people who don’t pay attention to news or politics, are starting to see and understand how Obama’s policies hurt them.

This is our chance.  Don’t waste it.  In the near future, you are going to hear people that never liked to discuss politics, start saying things like, “My lost my health insurance because of Obamacare.” or “My health care insurance is now more expensive under Obamacare.” or “I’ve tried, but can’t get signed up for Obamacare.  The website’s a pain in the ass.”

When they say things like that - That’s your opportunity to get through to them.  They now have had some first hand experience, and understand how at least one liberal policy has had a negative impact on their lives.  They are now going to be more open to hearing what you’ve got to say than ever before.  This will be your golden opportunity to get through to them.  How do you do that?  By linking.

Obamacare is Obama’s signature issue.  He has put more effort into this than anything else (except campaigning), but look at the results.  Obamacare is starting to look to the general public like an ill-conceived, poorly administered disaster, and they are 100% correct.

Now if Obamacare...

  • Doesn’t deliver what was promised
  • Costs the country more than expected
  • Costs individual citizens more than expected
  • Reduces citizens ability to choose what type of insurance plan is best for them
  • Can’t even produce a useable website
  • Was sold to the American public with misstatements and outright lies

...imagine how bad the rest of Obama’s policies and programs are!  I promise you, that people are going to see the connections when you link it to other things.

When someone says that Obamacare hasn’t delivered what was promised, you link it to the stimulus package and explain how that didn’t deliver what was promised.

When anyone says that Obamacare is going to cost the country more than expected, you link it to how Obama’s other policies have cost the country more than expected, and increased the national debt to $17 trillion.

When a person says that their health insurance is going to cost them more under Obamacare, you link it to how Obama’s energy policies cost them more at the gas pump, and how increased energy cost drive up all other costs.
When a friend tells you that Obamacare has reduced his choices of health insurance policies, you link that to the fact that Obama has often attempted to reduce people’s choices, like a person’s choice to defend themselves with a particular type of firearm.

When someone speaks of the incompetence of the Obama administration in setting up the Obamacare website, you link it to the administration’s incompetence in handling Benghazi, the economy, and just about everything else.

When people say they were lied to, when Obama was pitching Obamacare, you link that to how he and his administration, lied about Benghazi, the IRS scandal, Fast and Furious, etc.

I thought of all this as fast as I could write it.  Imagine what you could come up with, if you put some thought into it.  Let’s not let this crisis go to waste!

Once you have gotten someone to understand that it’s not just Obamacare, and it’s not just Obama, it’s liberalism itself, that is the problem, that’s when you go in for the kill.

Tell them that all of these liberal disasters (social security, medicare, wealth transfer payments, environmental regulations, stimulus, etc.) either costs them money, or diverts tax money from other things that would serve us all better.  The end result is less money for the people, who up until now, could only see the increased costs of Obamacare.

Now they’re putty in your hands and here’s how to get them to come over to your side.  You link all they have just learned to the fact that they don’t have all they want in life, that they aren’t realizing their dreams.  Mention all the things that they could have had if it weren’t for liberal policies.  That Harley that they have been lusting after, they could have had it, if it weren’t for the likes of Obama.  They talk about the fond memories they have of their dad’s Mustang and they're disappointed that they can’t afford one.  They could, if it weren’t for the progressive agenda.  They wish they could have had their own business?  They could have, if it weren’t for liberal policies.

Once people understand what Obama and other liberals have cost them, they won’t be so disinterested in politics anymore, and you’ll be able to count them being in the conservative corner.
