If Obamacare passes…

March 13, 2010

It seems touch-and-go.  The White House, using a predictable basketball analogy, calls it a “jump ball.” One day I hear Pelosi has the votes, the next day I hear she doesn’t.  Grass roots liberty organizations encourage us to call, write, fax or visit our congressional representative yet again to register once more our unalterable opposition.

Been, there, done that.  They know. A Colorado grassroots organizer said

I was in Jared Polis [D-CO2]office yesterday and a few months ago took a group of Doctors , Nurses, Engineers, CEO and other professional and met with him.  He has made it clear that he is voting for this health care bill and he also was pushing getting the Government Option back into the bill.  I have had people sign letters and have delivered them to him, it still does not matter.  Jared Polis will vote for this bill no matter what we do.

In reviewing this last week’s polls, Rasmussen wrote:

Are national Democrats on a kamikaze mission to pass their health care reform plan and destroy themselves at the polls in November? That’s what it seems like…

So what will happen if Pelosi convinces them to pass the bill and the president and the senate do the “reconciliation” process?  Will Americans rise up in revolt?  Will they storm the barricades, fire-bomb congressional offices, march into the legislatures and literally throw the bums out? That would send a message that would stop the madness, wouldn’t it?  Wasn’t King George burned in effigy more than once and the tea dumped into Boston Harbor?  Does not the Declaration of Independence read:

That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it,…

Yes, that would get their attention.  Those admirers of Mao in the administration and in congress who believe that power comes from the barrel of a gun would reap what they have sown.

But that will not happen.  If they manage to pass this blatantly unconstitutional bill in the middle of the night, Americans will get up the next morning and go to work as usual–if they still have work–more determined than ever to effect a permanent change to the ills that surround us.

No, retribution will not be swift–but it will be certain.

    Winston was right..If you are not a liberal at 25 you have no heart, a conservative at 50 or you have no brain..WE truly think these blow dried 30 second sound bite types we elect are smart.. Sit down and probe and you will find the opposite. “The most intellectual da da da” Look around the world, grey hair rules why? We all learn by experience-unless we are smart enough to LISTEN . YOO HOO noone in Washington is listening. It tells you something, either too dumb or arrogant both dangerous , we are in the hands of fools.
    30 years of “globalization” what has happened to America? We need enlightened leadership , that can look at history, Start over, rebuild America on sound idea’s Free trade is a mockery that rewards the rest of the world and destroys America. Remember the sales pitch, we will have export jobs, really meant we will export our jobs.
    You cannot pay for any programs until you get on a true balanced budget. The fools in Washington just ran up a 200 PLUS deficit in FEBRUARY ALONE. In one month they ran what “evil” Bush ran in one YEAR!
    I am an independent, small business owner who was a marine jet type nam era, then fortune 500 exec, turnaround exec, I have seen the destruction of America in my lifetime. God help our grandchildren.

    Al I hope you are right and that Americans won’t just accept their fate and go back to watching American Idol. I am not yet convinced that enough people are willing to do whatever it takes to bring back Constitutional government.

    We shall see. Sam Adams said:

    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.

    Right now we are seeing the results of a tireless minority of Marxists stamping out the fire of freedom.

    As Glenn Beck says, we need more Madison and less Marx. Will we be worthy of our ancestors? I pray we will be.
