That Does It.

All human situations have their inconveniences. We feel those of the present but neither see nor feel those of the future; and hence we often make troublesome changes without amendment, and frequently for the worse.
Benjamin Franklin

Well They've done it now. Our Pelosi led House of Representatives has just passed the most dangerous piece of garbage legislation ever to disgrace the floor. I'm sure the sycophant representatives from South Texas slobbered their way to the "For" button. I can almost assure you they didn't read it. The house voted 220 to 215 for the passage. I hope the names of the 220 traitors who voted for this bill are put on billboards across this great nation for all patriotic Americans to see. We should not only vote them out, but show up after election day and run them out of D.C. on a rail.

Today I defer to a good friend who knows as I do the true consequences of following politicians who are not only out to line their own pockets, but who have a social agenda to destroy our country in the process. They trample the very document that, along with strong Christian values, made this country the best in the world. His name is David and he sees the world without all the facade. His lifetime of work in solving horrible crimes have left him with senses that few possess. In addition, he has a great talent for putting his thoughts on paper.

"David's Thoughts"

Well folks, I was just watching the health care debate on C-SPAN until I
couldn't stomach it anymore. However, I think the corrupt Democrat from
New York, Charlie Rangel, defined this issue very succinctly from the
Democratic perspective.

He basically said that national, government run health care is more
important than freedom. In fact, he said it twice within one minute. He
then chastised Republicans who had opposed Medicare back in the 1960's
by saying that they thought "simple freedom" was more important than
what they called at the time a government take over of health care.

So there you have it. Rangel is a powerful liberal Democrat and he was
speaking for virtually all liberals. Government is more important than
freedom. He also confirmed that the government's first venture into
health care, Medicare, was a precursor of national health care of the
type now being considered. The opponents in the 1960's were right except
I don't believe even they could have imagined that if you don't want it
and don't buy, they will send you to prison.

Didn't know about that? Could it be because the House bill wherein this
provision exists has not been posted on the White House web site as
Obama promised all bills would be?

The Joint Commission on Taxation in response to a letter of inquiry from
a Republican Congressman makes it clear that Americans who do not
maintain “acceptable health insurance coverage” and who choose not to
pay the bill’s new individual mandate tax (generally 2.5% of income),
are subject to numerous civil and criminal penalties, including criminal
fines of up to $250,000 and imprisonment of up to five years.”

In other words, the government will decide if your health care is
sufficient for you and if they decide it's not, and you don't comply
with governmental instructions immediately, you will face civil fines
and be criminally prosecuted.

And this is just the beginning. I saw Congressman James Clyburn, a black
Democrat who is the majority whip in the House, interviewed on FOX News
the other day. He was asked what provision of the Constitution
authorized Congress to spend one nickel on health care. He cavalierly
replied, “There’s nothing in the Constitution that says that the federal
government has anything to do with most of the stuff we do.”

For 50 years now leftist liberals have packed the courts with those of
their ilk. The courts have invented something they call "the living
Constitution." What this means is that they can interpret it anyway they
please in order to fulfill the agenda de jour without regard to original
intent. In plain English, by ignoring the plain meaning of the
Constitution, the foundation for all of our laws, they have gradually
turned our country away from the Rule of Law toward the Rule of Men.

We have seen laws passed since the 1960's which conform to this same
philosophy. Medicare was just one of them. This administration and
Democratic Congress are now implementing plans leftist liberals have
been waiting 60 or more years to see enacted, and as I said previously,
they are just getting started.

These people have no agreement whatsoever with the ideas of personal
freedom and rugged individualism which made this country the best for
its citizens in the history of the world. In fact, their idea is to make
us all subjects, not citizens.

If you agree with my thoughts, the time is already past for drastic
action. We can no longer just sit back and vote. We must aggressively
move to stop all of this by forming groups which monitor and put
pressure on our elective representatives each and every day. We must do
it en masse to show we mean business. We must do it now. If we don't,
our children and grandchildren will never know the freedom or even the
prosperity we have known. The Great American Experiment will be
dead...and it will have succumbed on our watch.


"It does not take a majority to prevail ... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men." --Samuel Adams
