What do you do when a legislator threatens you?
Yeah, I said it.
What do you do when a legislator threatens you?
YOU REJOICE & DOUBLE DOWN.
What does that mean, “rejoice and double down”...?
Shouldn’t I be afraid of a threat? Shouldn’t I be alarmed?
The answer to both of those questions is NO.
Very rarely, at least in Indiana, do political threats come in the form of a physical threat of violence. Often, it is one of a political nature.
A mix, if you will, between a whining legislator, comparable to a 4-year-old, and a threat of “if we do this you will get worse.”
So what was the threat, why should I rejoice, and how do we double down?
I’m glad you asked, let’s get to work!
In all reality, this was not a singular threat. Many of our members have been reporting back that the legislative aids are getting quite angry and even aggressive on the phone.
Aids are disgruntled when constituents want to end the state of emergency without codifying it. From their perspective Hoosiers are being unreasonable. Afterall, the great demi-gods are finally bending to listen to the needs of constituents. In the eyes of legislators, “Hoosiers should be grateful,” the issue is being addressed.
They don’t understand why we are not accepting it on their terms. During phone calls, aids are demanding to know why citizens are objecting, then making veiled threats such as:
“Are you ok with paying back tons of money to the federal government?”
“Can you live with millions of Hoosiers being without health insurance.”
First, Indiana’s population is less than seven (7) million, if MILLIONS of Hoosiers only have insurance because of emergency federal funding we have greater problems. If the economic fallout of pandemic lockdowns had impacted our state that severely, we should be focusing more clearly on getting Hoosiers back to work.
I would also like to point out that just because we disagree with this bill doesn’t mean we would want harm to come to Hoosiers.
Of course, we want Hoosiers to have health insurance.
Of course, we don’t want to have to pay back “tons of money” to the federal government.
The truth is we shouldn’t have taken the money in the first place.
We don’t want the state of emergency codified. If the legislature really wants to end the state of emergency, they have the ability to do that WITHOUT forcing this bill through.
We have seen multiple House Concurrent Resolutions presented and no action taken, likely due to the Federal Funding that Gov. Holcomb has accepted on behalf of the state.
You see the reason they are taking action is because Hoosiers have been angry about this for OVER A YEAR!
They are hoping that Hooisers are not smart enough to figure out the bait and switch. They are simply moving the state of emergency into law.
ARE YOU WILLING TO TRADE FEDERAL FUNDING FOR YOUR FREEDOMS?
Are you willing to circumvent the way our government was set up in order to ensure that we get government handouts?
THE RESOUNDING ANSWER IS NO!
If Governor Holcomb wouldn’t have taken these federal bribes in the first place, we wouldn’t be in this situation. There comes a point in which you have to end the insanity.
We all know there is no such thing as a free lunch. Indiana needs to stop taking government money in exchange for security in the form of food stamps and Medicaid funding.
Indiana must start moving in the right direction rather than facilitating more federal meddling in our state.
Do not forget, President Biden stated, he was working with Governors of each state to ensure his edicts for mask mandates and lockdowns occurred.
Don’t be mistaken, this money was a federal bribe in the form of a noose, choking your liberty.
How are we supposed to rejoice with all that doom and gloom?
Easy. Understand the situation!
Threats can only mean one thing. The pressure within the state house is ever increasing because of the successful efforts of Hoosiers fighting for Medical Liberty!
As the aids continue to receive pushback and the legislators feel they are in a no-win situation, everyone within those walls is on edge.
That means Hoosiers are winning.
How long before the pressure builds so strong the issue bursts wide open?
This is my favorite part, doubling down.
Doubling down means when you gain ground you continue to advance.
When your opponent is on the ropes, you don’t back off.
You don’t give them a moment to breathe.
You don’t let them gain footing.
You secure the win with more pressure.
We must create more pressure!
Here is your call to action.
Thank you for your steadfast dedication to Liberty! We couldn't be more thankful for all of your hard work. This is your victory!
Rejoice & Double Down!
