We are America; not Cuba, not Europe. Our forefathers left Europe and fought the Revolutionary War to give us the gift of America, the shining light on a hill. Why would we throw that away to become like Europe once again? As Proverb 26:11 says, it is “like a dog who returns to his own vomit.” And yet, this is exactly what president Obama and the progressive Democrats want to do beginning with the passing into Law their infamous Health Care Reform Bill, or Obama Care. It matters not that the majority of Americans passionately oppose it; the desperation, with which they are driven to force this monstrosity of a Bill on the American people, from resorting to unconstitutional tactics to committing political suicide, is revealing of the obvious answer.
Behaving like a candidate instead of a President, Obama has campaigned for his Health Care Reform Bill like a wolf in sheep’s clothing, using deceptive rhetoric to appear as though it’s about charity and compassion, and that he is fighting for “we the people.” In truth, it’s not about the people at all; it’s about progressives obtaining power and control. It’s about this once in a lifetime opportunity to finally grasp their holy grail, to “fundamentally ">transform America” into a European style welfare state. Health Care is merely the door to achieving this ultimate goal; it’s the skeletal foundation for this radical transformation. And they’re determined to get through that door at any and all cost, even if it means politically raping the American people and falling on their swords in the process. Saul Alinsky, Mr. “the ends justify the means,” would be proud.
Americans now understand progressives, and thus, are finally fighting them. Progressives therefore realize, pushing through their agenda is no longer the slam-dunk they originally hoped it would be. With the November mid-term elections fast approaching, and the influencing voice of the grassroots TEA Party movement representing America’s true majority, time is of the essence. They can no longer afford patience, nor can they give up, especially when they are so close to their victory they can actually taste it. Instead, it’s become a fight to the death, either the death of their agenda or the death of capitalist America, which is why they are pulling out all the stops to pass Obama Care, of late attempting to use the unconstitutional “Deem and Pass” Rule. They’re willing, in their own estimation, to “heroically” sacrifice their soul for the cause - if they had a soul.
Emboldened and deluded with the arrogant intoxication of being the super-majority, progressives forget that the Constitution has ensured their power is temporary. While recent polls have shown that conservatives are the American majority, progressives behave like they are the majority, like their “moment” to rule has finally come, and conservatives will never be back in power again. This false sense of security has resulted in foolishly exposing themselves with the same gleeful abandon as the women in “Girl’s Gone Wild.” In doing so, they’ve ignorantly handed Americans the evidence needed to defeat them. Once Jack is out of the box, you might be able to put him back in, however, now we know what he looks like and who he really is. The element of surprise is gone. To then keep acting like we’re still clueless only underscores how exposed they really are.
One of the most perplexing reveals is how anti-American progressives are. They’ve stealthily infiltrated our schools, courts, and legislatures, like a “Trojan Horse” filled to the brim with an agenda that is a direct threat to the free America of our blessed inheritance for which our Founding Fathers gave their lives. John Quincy Adams said, “You will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it." Anything less is a shameful travesty, spitting on the blood shed to provide it.
If progressives hate America, why are they here? Why bother trying to fundamentally change her when there are Countries like China, Venezuela and Cuba, already made to their preference? For touting themselves as the voice of diversity and tolerance, they certainly have none for allowing the existence of America’s diversity in the world; they would rather have more of the same.
No matter how many speeches Obama gives, and no matter how deceptive the packaging, we fervently do not want to “fundamentally transform” America, especially destroying the world’s best Health Care System and with the governmental taking over of one-sixth of our economy to achieve it.
1) Obama claims if you oppose his plan, then you simply want the status quo.
- However, most Americans agree that we need reform. We disagree with the need to overhaul the whole system to resolve the issues at hand.
2) Obama falsely purports that 30 million Americans are without Health Care.
- The real number is more like ">12 million. In his book, “Liberty and Tyranny,” Mark Levin explicitly details the truth.
3) Obama claims there is such a dire urgency for reform, exploitatively propping up the misfortunes of others to reinforce his point.
- If it’s so urgent, why doesn’t it become effective until 2014?
Why is it necessary to completely overhaul the Rolls Royce in order to fix faulty or broken headlights and that for such a small percentage? Let’s just fix the headlights. If 12 million Americans are lacking coverage, let’s extend to them the already existing Medicaid program without disrupting a system that is working for the remaining 288 million. And while we’re on the subject, let’s fix the current problems with Medicaid instead of creating another dysfunctional government run program.
In the end, Obama and the progressive Democrats believe that they know better than us and once we have Obama Care, we will come to like it. However, no one who’s been raped goes on to later enjoy sexual relations with their rapist.
No matter how passionately we’ve said “no,” begging and pleading with Obama and the democrats to stop this America-altering atrocity, they’re proceeding with the unthinkable governmental rape of this Country anyway, smiling, without shame, like it’s perfectly normal. It’s disgusting on every level – except to them.
President George Washington said in 1787, "The power under the Constitution will always be in the People. It is entrusted for certain defined purposes, and for a certain limited period, to representatives of their own choosing; and whenever it is executed contrary to their interest, or not agreeable to their wishes, their servants can--and undoubtedly will--be recalled."
Patrick Henry said, "The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people; it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government."
President Ronald Reagan said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”
If the Obama Administration believes we’re going to lie down and accept the “remaking” of America, they completely under estimate the vehement disapproval of the American people. Our votes hold the winning hand with plenty of Constitutional chips to spare.
Their holy grail - of power and control through Health Care - is so close they are willing to politically rape, pillage and die for it. And politically die they will, beginning in November. Progressive radicals gone wild, indeed…. gone off the deep end…. and then overboard.
