What you can do to stop Obamacare

Doug O'Brien at Big Government wants you to know that there's still something you can do to stop Obamacare:
Politics has often been called the “Art of the Possible.” We have seen many a strange thing happen in the history of American elections. But nothing would be more unexpected, or more immediately helpful to the American people, than if Republican State Senator Scott Brown could pull of the mother of all upsets and capture the special election for Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat on January 19th. A Brown victory would deny the Democrats the 60 votes necessary to shove through the takeover of the nation’s health care system.

For those political junkies who just assumed when Uncle Ted passed away that his seat would stay firmly in the grasp of the Howard Dean wing of the Democratic Party, take note, and take heart. State Attorney General Martha Coakley won the Democratic Primary with under 50% of the vote and has taken a cavalier attitude towards what she expected would be her coronation in the general.

Meanwhile, Senator Brown, and Army Reservist and an energetic campaigner, has been waging an insurgent battle that has pulled him to within nine points in the latest Rassmussen poll. According to Rassmussen, Brown’s surge is entirely due to a swing among independent voters, who can make the difference in Massachusetts in spite of the Democrats’ 3 to 1 edge in registration. Just ask GOP Governors Weld, Romney and Cellucci, who all have won statewide in the past two decades.
O'Brien believes this swing is the result of Brown's opposition to the Democrat's health care bill.  He concludes:
This race is their chance to have their say on the Bay State’s experience and whether or not the idea should be taken much, much further in geographic, economic and regulatory terms.

It is also the only opportunity for Americans to have any say what so ever on the pending bill. Since the White House has weaseled out of its promise of transparency and Congressional leadership is holding the details closer than their ATM pin numbers, Americans can make a statement by helping Scott Brown in this race. If Brown has the resources to make a competitive media buy in the next two weeks, he could close the gap.
Times are tough.  But if you are able, you can cast your vote against Obamacare by making a campaign contribution to Scott Brown here.
