"The Violation of America, a Year Later"

 ** I am posting this same article with a second title for those who feel the first one is too strong for sharing.

There are varied events in history that carry a defining, life-altering impact.  America has had many such events, especially in recent years.  9/11 is one, incomparably tragic, that instantly changed us forever. 
There are others far less tragic, yet no less significant and defining.

A year ago, against the impassioned will of the majority of Americans, the infamous Obama Care Bill was brazenly forced upon us, barely passing into Law, destroying the world’s best Health Care System, with the government taking over one-sixth of the economy to achieve it.

With it also came what president Obama promised – America had heartbreakingly begun the process of “fundamentally transforming.”  Many of us felt the anguish of this America –altering moment, grieving the loss of something sacred.  This assault was a huge loss of the America we had otherwise always known.  It disgracefully spit on the shed blood of our forefather’s who died to give us the blessed inheritance of a free America.

And it’s not just that Obama Care passed into Law, it’s equally important who ensured it and even more, how.  By force is un-American and unacceptable.   

No matter how passionately we said “no,” begging and pleading with Obama and the democrats to stop this atrocity, they proceeded with the unthinkable and appalling governmental rape of our Republic anyway, smiling, without shame, like it was perfectly normal.  

Watching then Speaker Nancy Pelosi march with fellow democrats to the Capital with such arrogance, carrying her oversized gavel (the pun not lost on us), was more than we could stomach. 

Emboldened and deluded with the arrogant intoxication of being the super-majority, and believing that they knew better than us, the democrats insisted that later, once we had Obama Care, we would come to like it.  However, no one who’s been raped goes on to later enjoy sexual relations with their rapist.  But they do eventually heal in the fight to take their life back. 

A year later, unwavering from our initial reaction and resolve, we are fully in the fight of our lives, on all fronts, against the tyranny of Obama Care.  

We cherish the gift of the Republic our Founders paid so dear a price to give us.  So if Obama and the democrats still believe we are going to eventually lie down in defeat and acceptance, they completely under estimate our fervent and vehement disapproval. 

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 democrats want.  

The Constitution has ensured that in America all power is temporary so that liberty is not.  

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."  

Our votes hold the winning hand with plenty of Constitutional chips to spare, as proven in the 2010 mid-term elections. 

While the conservative victory of the mid-terms stopped the bleeding out of our liberty and voted our voice back into the game, America is still on life support.  Our Country will not heal and economically recover until we instill the necessary confidence that will only come from stopping Obama’s transformational agenda and by undoing his policies, specifically, Obama Care. 

Recent polls reflect that even more people are opposed to Obama Care than ever before, with 62% favoring its repeal, especially after finally discovering “what is in it.”

In response to a suit brought by 26 states, (Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming), Federal Judge Roger Vinson ruled on January 31st that Obama Care is unconstitutional, stating, "Because the individual mandate is unconstitutional and not severable, the entire Act must be declared void."  

Currently, we are waiting for the case to be escalated to the Supreme Court for final ruling.

The newly Republican-led House, repealed Obama Care 245-189, but as long as Obama holds the veto pen via the Oval Office, his policies will remain in place.  This is why we want Obama to be a one-term President; to ensure the successful total repeal of Obama Care before it can be fully implemented and therefore never reversed.  

It should be no surprise that completely undoing Obama Care is the number one priority; everything hinges on it.  Our Republic’s survival depends on it.  If we fail to do so, indeed, America will be forever fundamentally transformed and it will be all downhill from there.

We don’t want to transform America into a European welfare state; we don’t want to become a socialist Nation, not even one sixth.  We’re not standing for the “remaking” of America; we’re fighting without ceasing to retake Her.  

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.”  

Significant baby steps made, there is still a road of struggle ahead.  Obama Care is the “Holy Grail” of the left and thus, will not go down without a fight.  

Our victory depends on both taking back the Senate and electing a conservative president in 2012, as well as the Supreme Court ruling in our favor.  There is little to no margin of error.  Time is of the essence, yet it is far too soon to lose heart.  

They may have knocked us down, but they have not knocked us out.  If we stay the course through 2012 and finish what we started in the 2010 mid-term tsunami, which returned America to a sea of conservative red, they never will.

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."

Thousands of our forefathers paid forward an America they never lived to see.  Never in our lives have we teetered so close to losing it.  Let us now also pay forward the America we inherited so that no generation ever teeters this close again.  It is the very least we could and should do.

  1. Right on! Obamacare will surely mean the end of American freedom- why don't those blind liberals see it? Just look what happened to Cuba! Was America founded on the socialist principles manifested in Obamacare? NO! And we're not going down without a fight!
