A new billboard has an ominous “personal” message for members of Congress.
It boldly declares, “Now it’s personal … America’s coming for you, Congress! Vote Liberals out in 2010.”
It is signed, “We The People.”
The sign, located on Interstate 75 just south of Lake City, Fla., also shows at least 40 people beneath the billboard, with some holding their own smaller placards with messages such as “No Government Health [Care]” and “Read the Bill.”
“People are overwhelmingly against the health-care bill,” Steve McDonald of “We the People” told WITN-TV. “They’re against cap and trade. They’re against the spending that this Congress seems to be bid on just doing what they want to do and not what the people want to do. And if they don’t want to hear us, let’s replace the Congress.”
Four more of the billboards are reportedly posted in the Sunshine State between Orlando and Tampa, and additional ones are expected to be visible in Jacksonville, Fla., and Valdosta, Ga.
Online comments about the sign include:
“November can’t get here fast enough!”
“It is time for the citizens of this great country to take control of the country. In November, hold a bloodless revolution; vote out all incumbents. This will inform the politicians in D.C. that we mean business. In fact, vote out all incumbents at all levels of government. The government works for us; not the other way around.”
“To think it was just 1 year ago that cocky liberals were posting all over the Net just such a warnings to conservatives.”
“Vote Liberals out … And your little RINOs, too!”
“Vote the Republicans out, too! They all have guaranteed healthcare for the rest of their lives. Somebody else should get it now. Then lets see what this ‘health-care’ plan costs us (ought to be a doozy!)”
“Awesome! Considering Obama’s determination to go after Americans is stronger than his determination to go after terrorists, I wish these people putting these signs up all the best.”
“I think it’s time for some more specific billboards on the roads around certain congresscritter’s hometowns.”
“Our elected officials have failed not only us but, our country as well. It’s time the people take our country back from the corrupt bureaucrats which includes local, state and federal levels. The national debt is $6 trillion and rising and the present and past administrations have led us into war without end! Perhaps what we need is a little anarchy!”
“I say we need to get rid of them all. It is the same old, good-old-boy club it has always been. They will not use the health care they want to vote for, so it does not take a rocket scientist to see we do not want it either! Let’s start all over again with new.”
“Brought to you by brainwashed lemmings who think Sarah Palin is ‘smart,’ and who listen ONLY to right-wing corporately paid whores RushBilloGlennSean, who have been endlessly proven factually incorrect, as well as racist, bigoted, sexist creeps.”
“The next one should read, ‘Attention Liberal Media: You’re Next!’”
The Florida campaign is in addition to some other eyebrow-raising, anti-government billboards across the fruited plain.
In Blue Springs, Mo., a billboard with a communist hammer and sickle reminiscent of the Soviet Union declares: “How do you like your change now? Obama-Nation. They are coming for you! The taxpayer. 1st & 2nd amendments are in jeopardy. Live Free or Die.”
Pastor Lonie Bouldin of Blue Springs formerly lived in the United Kingdom, and told KCTV-TV he agreed with that message.
“We lived in a socialist society and I guess what I’m seeing in America now is a lot of moving toward that, especially with the hospitalization and things that they’re pushing. But it’s not good and it’s taking away our freedoms as Americans.”
And along Highway 41 in Oshkosh, Wis., another billboard urges citizens to “Impeach Obama. America’s small businesses are failing. Help us spread the message.”
Gary Fox of Waukesha, Wis., saw the sign on his drive to Green Bay, and told WLUK-TV he completely agrees with it.
“I just think what Obama’s doing and the whole administration and the Democratic Congress is bad for business,” he said. “You look at the deficits. You look at everything they’re doing.”
Jef Hall, chairman of the Winnebago County Democrats responded, “I don’t know what’s impeachable about having a bad opinion of the president. I know a lot of people that would’ve impeached the last one.”
“I have a dream,” Farah said,
“My dream is that IF Barack Obama even seeks re-election as president
in 2012, he won’t be able to go to any city, any town, any hamlet in
America without seeing signs that ask, ‘Where’s the birth certificate?’
