Mind-Numbed Robot: Socia.list

The Progressive States Network (PSN) has been flying under the radar for quite some time now.  During the last few weeks there has been a concerted effort by a small number of conservative bloggers to get the word out about this organization and their desire to push progressive policies at the state level.  Yes that’s right our local politics have been infected by this progressive disease known as the PSN. Mind Numbed Robot has taken it to the next level and has created a new page called Socia.list. Below are a few things you need to know about the page pulled directly from it.


What is it?

An idea hatched while researching the Progressive States Network.

What is the Progressive States Network?

The Progressive States Network’s Board of Directors at the time of this posting consist of:

Rep. Garnet Coleman, Texas House of Representatives, Co-Chair
Sen. Joe Bolkcom, Iowa Senate
Wes Boyd, President of
David Brock, President and CEO, Media Matters for America
Anna Burger, International Secretary-Treasurer, SEIU
Sen. Morgan Carroll, Colorado Senate
Sen. Spencer Coggs, Wisconsin Senate
Leo Gerard, President, United Steelworkers, Vice President, AFL-CIO
Lisa Seitz Gruwell, Political Director, Skyline Public Works
Del. Tom Hucker, Maryland House of Delegates
Steve Kest, Executive Director of ACORN
Sen. Nan Orrock, Georgia Senate
Rep. Hannah Pingree, Majority Leader, Maine House of Representatives
John Podesta, President and CEO, the Center for American Progress
Lee Saunders, Executive Assistant to the President of AFSCME
Ben Scott, Policy Director, Free Press
Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, Arizona House of Represenatives
Naomi Walker, State Government Affairs Director

Why the list?

Because, you need to know who your friends are in government. Likewise, your foes.

These names are taken directly from the Progressive States Network website and are noted as having signed the PSN HealthCare letter supporting ObamaCare.

As such, it is my never so humble opinion that these individuals have no clue as to the limits the Constitution of the United States places on the Federal government and should either reconsider their stance on this issue or lose their office.

ObamaCare is unconstitutional, socialistic and furthers the implementation of and forces a soft tyranny on every American citizen with its overreaching federal intrusion into our lives.

Vote these people out of office. Support their Republican opponents, if available.

I should also note that due to the lateness of the hour in terms of the November election, I’ve chosen, with one exception, to include only Republican opponents. While I vote my true conscience as to libertarian/conservative values in Primary elections, I believe in voting for the most conservative candidate that can win in this important General election.

For now, the only ones listed are Texans. In time, more will be added. However, if you’ll notice the list below, there are over 1000 signatories to the PSN Healthcare letter to Obama.

How does it happen that those whom otherwise may be very sane people can ascribe to such philosophy? Anymore, I don’t care. I’m just here to stop the bleeding. We already have a diagnosis. The prescribed treatment is a transfusion of new blood, preferably TEA.

I learned that the following ND legislators signed letters urging the Obama Administration and Congress to pass comprehensive health care reform legislation, including the choice of a public health insurance plan.


Sen. Tom Fiebiger (ND)
Rep. Richard Holman (ND), Member, Human Services Committee
Rep. Lee Kaldor (ND)
Rep. Jerome Kelsh (ND)
Sen. Aaron Krauter (ND)
Sen. Tim Mathern (ND)
Sen. Carolyn Nelson (ND)
Sen. Ryan Taylor (ND)
Rep. Lonny Winrich (ND)

If they can influence North Dakota legislators, one of the most conservative states in the country, they can influence any legislator in any state.

I want to thank Mind Numbed Robot, Conservative Hideout 2.0, The Lonely Conservative, motorcitytimes, and Political Realities for helping in getting the word out about the PSN and for promoting this vital new page.  It’s a fountain of information on the PSN and highly recommended.  I urge you to contact your local Tea Party organization and make them aware of this organization.

Liberty forever freedom for all!

    Great work John. These folks are in the open, but are under the radar. Informing people is one of the best things we can do. Thanks for the link, and keep up the good work.
