With the election right around the corner, the media is talking about the real, important issues facing the American people -- Big Bird, bayonets, and binders. In the heart of America, however, the Tea Party Patriots have been educating the public on what exactly the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) will do to the American health care system.
The main thrust of this effort is The Determinators, the first original Tea Party Patriots film. A mere 58 minutes long, it delves into some of the most important flaws in the Affordable Care Act, including its rationing capabilities and violations of some of the most basic rights of Americans -- including freedom to not have insurance.
The launch of The Determinators officially took place on October 17, when thousands of Tea Party activists around the country showed the film at their homes. Tea Party Patriots then shipped 360,000 copies to undecided voters across America. The final part of the push was the publication of the YouTube page for The Determinators. As of earlier this afternoon, this 58-minute film had over 445,000 views in only nine days -- an impressive average of 40,000 viewers per day.
Since the start of the general election, both candidates seem to have decided to focus on the debt and the economy -- well, at least Governor Romney has -- almost to the detriment of pointing out how negative Obamacare is for America. The Affordable Care Act does little good for the country, and plenty of bad, including centralizing control of the lives of citizens and increasing taxes by over $700 billion.
Unfortunately, the Supreme Court ruled Obamacare constitutional. So we are left with only one reasonable option to prevent its full implementation: repeal it in its entirety. This won’t happen unless the public actually realizes how bad the law is, which is why Tea Party Patriots launched The Determinators.
With politicians launching tired ad after tired ad, many Americans find the Tea Party’s focus on principles refreshing. If you haven’t already watched the movie, I encourage you to do so. Then reach out to undecided voters and inform them of the devastating effects of Obamacare that will impact our nation unless it is repealed in its entirety.
