Hey Hey Ho Ho! Nodrillosi Has Got to Go! Hey Hey Ho Ho …
UPDATE – RESCHEDULED
To next Tuesday, August 12. Same bat time; same bat channel.
The RI College Republicans have organized a protest at 1:00
today  next Tuesday against inaction by the US House on several bills to expand domestic oil drilling. It will start at Congressmen Kennedy’s office, 249 Roosevelt Avenue, Pawtucket, and move to Congressman Langevin’s, 300 Centerville Road, Suite 200 South, Warwick.
The College Republicans at Roger Williams University and the College Republican Federation of Rhode Island are inviting YOU to join us and show your support for bringing an end to the House of Representative’s August Recess and stopping our energy crisis!
HELP MAKE HISTORY
Last Friday, on the floor of the House of Representatives, an historical event took place. Several GOP congressmen defiantly stood up against an ignorant Democratic leadership in the House of Representatives. For almost 5 hours, several Republican members gathered on the floor of the House of Representatives in protest of the August recess that passed an adjournment vote Friday morning. They’re protesting because for the last week or so, Democratic Speaker (“Dictator”) Nancy Pelosi and her far-left colleague Harry Reid, majority leader in the Senate, have been blocking bill after bill that would be voted on to address the energy and gasoline crisis currently crippling Americans. Said bills would open up exploration for drilling in Anwar and allow off-shore drilling to drive down our dependence on foreign oil and lower gas prices.
To date, the DEMOCRATS have not allowed a vote on such a bill, and instead have decided to take a break for the ENTIRE MONTH OF AUGUST! Instead of remaining in D.C. and performing the duties they were elected to perform, they are running away from the biggest energy crisis since the 1970’s and the Carter days.
In honorable defiance of the Democrats and their cowardly “recess,” GOP congressmen gathered on the House floor and demanded a vote! To counter this revolution, Pelosi herself ordered the power to but shut off to the House. For hours the brave GOP congressmen conducted their rally behind locked doors and without electricity! The DEMS ordered the lights to be shutdown, the mics and CSPAN cameras to be turned off, and didn’t allow reporters into the capitol. These revolutionaries had to resort to their cell phones to take pictures and relay messages of the happenings that took place on the floor.
COLLEGE REPUBLICANS ACROSS RHODE ISLAND ARE CONTINUING THIS FIGHT!
We have coordinated our efforts and put together a protest of our own to this ridiculous break the Democrats have taken! On Tuesday afternoon,
tomorrow, we will march down to the offices of Rep. Patrick Kennedy and Rep. Langevin and rally for the cause of the GOP congressmen, and a vote on an energy or drilling bill that will bring relief to the American People! Both Rep. Kennedy and Rep. Langevin voted Friday morning to adjourn the House into this month long recess (see House Roll Call 566). We need to let our elected officials know that they belong in Washington doing their jobs!
JOIN US AND FIGHT FOR DEMOCRACY! TELL YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY! LET’S GET THE MESSAGE ACROSS!
We will meet in front of Rep. Kennedy’s offices at 1:00PM sharp on Tuesday, August
5 12. We will then carry on the rally to Rep. Langevin’s offices at 2:00PM. Bring your markers, your poster, your thoughts, your sunglasses, and your friends! Remember, there is strength in numbers.
