There are 435 Representatives in the House, and less than 100 are publicly on record for impeaching the MF’er. When people talk about how Pelosi is a master at legislation, what they mean is that she can count to 435. Those are the only votes that matter to her, not public opinion.
So our mission—if we decide to accept it— is to increase the number of votes in Congress to #ITMFA From less than 100 to more than 218 (435/2). We have 45 days to do it.
This is going to require showing up, in person, and getting in your Rep’s face. We have to let them know what we think, that if they go out on the limb, we are there for them. We also have to let them know that if they do NOTHING that we will vote them out. And then we must do it. Find out the name of their primary opponent and use it.
If your Rep is having a Town Hall meeting, go to it, be loud. If your Rep is not having one, show up to the district office. Be loud. Remember the Tea Party? Be them. Your Rep’s schedule should be public, show up wherever s/he is and be loud. This is not the time to be polite.
When everyone returns from the summer recess, Nancy Pelosi is going to count votes. If there are not enough, she’s going to continue to keep impeachment off the calendar (not off the table).
