We didn't start the fire.

But we’ll damn sure throw some gas on it.
Jim Hoft and Michelle Malkin are both linking to a blog called Fire the 219.

Fire the 219 is dedicated to to removing from power all 219 members of Congress who voted to destroy the finest Health Care system in the world on March 21, 2010. We will use any and all legal means possible, starting with recall petitions in those 18 states that allow it (NJ,OR,WI,CA,CO,LA,MI,NV,ND + 9 others).

It was founded by Michael P. Farris, J.D.
He is the Chancellor and Professor of Government at Patrick Henry College.
I have never heard of the man until today but I like the cut of his jib.
Here is a little excerpt from his bio posted online.

I’m sorry.
Did I say excerpt….?
I meant the whole thing.
I left two comments on the site that have yet to be posted at this time so this leads me to believe that it is a turn key operation right now. But who knows. All big and great things start off small.
All great journeys start with the first step.
All revolutions start with the first shot.
All firestorms start with the first spark.
Maybe we here can help Professor Farris ignite a firestorm by joining him in blowing on the smoldering embers of what used to be our beloved Constitution and bring the heat to the members of Congress who voted away your freedoms.
I would love to see something like this takeoff big.

And if he ever gets around to posting my comments I might even ahhh…. throw him a few bucks if you know what I mean.
Nudge nudge wink wink.
For what it is worth….I’ll join.
