I am not on Facebook

There are several David H. Campbells and David Campbells on Facebook.  None of them are me.  I am not on Facebook. 

The Health Care Bill

Friday, March 26th, 2010

President Obama delivered on the health care bill in an engaging way. He pulled the Congress into the debate kicking and screaming. And it worked out. The bill passed. Twice. Now we have a blueprint to work with in the years to come.

We also have a blueprint of what the opposition looks like running up to the November midterms. I predict the Republicans will be very disappointed when they don’t perform nearly as well as they seem to think they will in November. Who wants to spend their time and waste their money and vote on a party and movement that makes threats like schoolyard bullies, throws bricks with misspelled notes on them through windows, and in the name of pro-life threatens to kill health care providers? It just tells me that they are not capable of articulating an opposing position. I cannot tolerate cowards.

National Health Insurance - the Bottom Line

Monday, March 1st, 2010

The bottom line is:

We, the citizens, are employers, we fund the U.S. government with our tax dollars and therefore must insist that we are entitled to the same health care benefits that our employees are - from the President and VP, Members of the House and Senate, and the Supreme Court, on down. . . to do otherwise is not good business.  (It is not good politics, either.)  If this can’t be accomplished then we must strip our employees of their health care until parity can be reached. 

THIS is what I call starting over.   

Run against Incumbents

Monday, March 1st, 2010

I’m simply saying, to all my people out there in the political realm, if you ever wanted to challenge an incumbent, now is the time.  Every incumbent needs at least one challenger from his/her own party and at least one challenger from another party.  If you run, I’ll support you.  Obama was right about change, it needs to happen. 

It’s all about the journey and we’ve just gotten started.  We must continue on, with or without President Obama.
