"WAKE UP AMERICA !"

My thoughts on the future of FreedomWorks....

December 5, 2012

Last weekend I attended a FreedomWorks Activist Fly-In. One hundred other activists shared the same concerns as myself.....where do we go from here? We were looking for answers, a clear vision for the future...and a heavy dose of patriotic infusion. We were not disappointed. Matt Kibbe greeted us all with his opening statements and I found him to be unassuming in a "gentle giant" kind of way. There is a quiet strength about him that impressed me. Matt's ability to lead was clearly evident in the accomplished "team" he has built to support FreedomWorks. I think that the average age of his staff is about 23 and each has his or her own set of extraordinary abilities. My bet is on this "stable of thoroughbreds"
at the next race. I had no idea that this well of creativity and intelligence was available to us. I feel confident, that with their help and support, we can accomplish all of our goals. It will take a lot of effort...there is no replacement for just good old-fashioned hard work, but our goals can be realized if we all work as one big team. Please know that my reason for continuing on is not an emotional one...I am done with that. Elections in part are a huge numbers game and the numbers can be ours for the taking if we play it smart. Kelly Ann Conway, who you may have seen on Fox News, gave a brilliant presentation on the results of her polling. By the way...she was one of the few who claimed that Obama would win....again, based strictly on numbers. Her talking points addressed the main areas of concern; 1. Embrace Technology, 2. Offer Solutions, 3. Grasp Demographic Realities, 4. Purge...he or she cannot win, 5., Embrace electoral competition (find new customers) and 6., Clean up "staff infection"...the old guard giving their antiquated advice to candidates. Another reason we lost was because voters simply did not show up to the polls. Kelly Ann believes we are all creatures of habit and it is difficult to get our electorate out of their "comfort zones".. In conclusion, there IS a window of opportunity for 2014....we have not lost any ground since our stupendous victory in 2010. Now is not the time to give up...we have a lot of work to do. The framework is in place to accomplish all of our goals ..and a team of people who share our same hopes and dreams are just a phone call away. Our children are counting on us.

Hi Cynthia, what do you think of the situation regarding Dick Armey and did Matt bring up the matter?

Did Armey quit after or before this?

Atta Girl Cynthia! I am emotioned-out! Let's do what has never been done before. Let's do what is right! Roll-up the sleeves, clean-out the cobwebs, and start anew. Whatever happens will be no worse than 2012.

Daniel, we never heard a word about Dick..and I am glad. He is one person and too much like the old guard. Our meetings were positive and about our potential for the future....according to the Washington Post....Dick was disgruntled about losing some clients in the health care field...same old, same old. Matt and his team are young and refreshing...and not beholden to anyone. Their donors are made up of $100.

David, I will be right there beside you! If we do not continue to fight....then our opposition has won....and I do not like to lose. In addition, our retreating is exactly what the enemy is hoping for...including our own RINO's! Let's give them all a hell of a fight and go down swinging!

Amazing. I believe our like-mindedness is beginning to connect, like never before.
Just a couple days ago we started a group, just to find one leader in every State to approach leaders of Conservative Patriot Groups in their State to form an alliance with us, respecting their core principals as a group.
Our purpose is to Unite, in alliance with all Conservative Patriot Groups to become one strong voice that represents strength by sheer numbers.

I think at this point and time everyone is ready for action. We are focused and know where we want to go and what our goals are. We all join in one force and make it happen, that is what Patriots are all about. Thanks Cynthia.

in 2014 we need to take senate seats and cripple the current administration. expanding the house conservatives is also critical and removal of boehner is an absolute. My belief is that he was critical in giving away the election of 2012 by providing 2.4T$ to the admin to buy votes with. The wh burned through the 2.4t as the election closed.
