Congress does not represent US

December 21, 2009

Who would have thought?  Not only are major votes on the healthcare bill being taken in the middle of the night–they are only being taken then.

The latest polls show Americans are against the measure–but the House and the Senate proceed anyway.

In praising the 1am vote in the senate, Obama refers to the century-long desire of socialists to pass nationalized health care reform.  He fails to mention that throughout that century Americans have consistently opposed it.  Clearly, those in the White House and Congress are living in their own echo chamber.  They don’t care what we want.  They want it and that’s all that matters.

Congress does not represent us any more.  We foolishly put these people in office in 2008.  The words of the Declaration of Independence remind us:

That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it,

The 111th Congress has forgotten that their power comes from the people; they think it comes from George Soros, labor unions, lobbyists and other major contributors.  They also forget that it is the right of the people to alter that government; they think they can use their money, the power of incumbency and a compliant and complicit press to maintain themselves in power indefinitely.

The people have shown their disapproval in a number of ways–so far peacefully.  So far, we are content to wait until the 2010 elections to begin to right this ship of state.

But make no mistake: these are not ordinary times.  This is no ordinary partisan debate.  This is not business as usual.  This is a battle for the heart and soul of our country.

This is the Second American Revolution.

    You sound like you mean what you say. If you do mean it, I thank you. I hope the other RMA 2.0 bloggers will start to demonstrate a like resolve.

    We live in interesting times. Unsure times. On the one hand, we can’t go off half-cocked. On the other, we can’t proceed as if it were politics as usual. May the Lord guide us.
