The progressives are so self involved that the people of this nation no longer have meaning in their lives. That is, if we ever did. I’m not talking about all Democrats, or even some Republicans for that matter. The term is Progressives. Their goal is to make radical socialism work…at any cost.
With the Health Scare Bill alone they have openly and insolently bought the necessary votes for incremental passage. That we know of: Louisiana received – $300 million, Connecticut – (Chris Dodd’s vote didn’t even have to be bought) $100 million, Nebraska – incalculable sum in perpetual Medicaid assistance, Vermont – the construction of two community health centers; Florida, Pennsylvania and New York – protections for Medicare Advantage beneficiaries, and the list goes on and on. There could be as many dollars spent on bribes (payoffs, buyoffs, graft, enticements, perks – you choose the term) as what are being spent on any medical program for we peons.
Nancy Pelosi, talking about the outcome of the Massachusetts Senatorial race and how it might affect Health Scare said, “Let’s remove all doubt, we will have health care — one way or another.” To my ears that means the opinions, wants, wills and desires of the citizens count for nothing as we will be saddled with whatever the elites choose for us. Remember, they are not participating in any program that comes out of this debacle. They are covered by their own untaxed and untouchable ‘Cadillac’ plan that is not available to us, yet we are paying for it out of our taxes.
It’s not just Congress acting as our overlord with their aggressively destructive commandeering of our lives and liberties. It goes to the top of the dung heap. It goes to (or comes from) the Oval Office. In an interview with George Stephanopoulos on Feb. 20, the day after Brown’s election and the first anniversary of his Presidency, President Obama said, “If there’s one thing that I regret this year it is that we were so busy just getting stuff done and dealing with the immediate crises that were in front of us that I think we lost some of that sense of speaking directly to the American people about what their core values are and why we have to make sure those institutions are matching up with those values.”
A quick rephrase and analysis of that statement for clarity: “If there’s one thing that I regret this year it is that we were so busy just getting stuff done (read: crippling the economy and the American Public) and dealing with the immediate crises that were in front of us (because we either created them or identified them as crises to promote our personal agendas) that I think we lost some of that sense of speaking directly to the American people about what their core values are and why we have to make sure those institutions are matching up with those values,” Note: He wanted to speak to us, not dialogue with us. He wanted to tell us what our core beliefs and values should be. He wants to be sure that we adjust our core values to coincide with his plans. Now that’s arrogant!
The power that has been inadvertently and mistakenly granted to the “Progressives” has allowed them to abduct our personal choices. They have taken our liberties, adjusted them to meet their own goals, and then used them against us. They will continue to do more and more to remove our freedoms until enough people decide they want their country back. I’m convinced that it will happen.
Such a radical takeover of an entire nation’s people, our freedoms, our rights and our livelihoods can only be met with reactionary resistance. (Note to FBI, INTERPOL and other intelligence agencies: I am not suggesting or advocating violent resistance.) I would like this to be a peaceful re-taking by the populace of our own lives and restraint of our governing bodies as prescribed in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. But the universal ire being created among the masses by one small group (536 including the House, Senate and President) of people lording unfettered omnipotence over this country must be moderated. If not peacefully through the voting booth, then we can expect an uprising or uprisings similar to Iran or China. This is why they fear our guns – we might use them to protect ourselves against the tyranny.
It is not about a black man being President or a woman being Speaker of the House. They would tell us that is the case, just as they have created so many unwarranted divisions amongst us. It is about any person or persons showing such disdain for their constituents in order to affect their personal ideals.
As indicated in MA, a vote can count. Brown is as unknown by this nation as was Obama when he was elected to the Senate. He could still be a poor choice, we’ll have to wait and see. However, the fact remains that the Senate seat has been liberated from Progressive Democrat control and it was done at the ballot box.
From this point on, let us learn about the candidates before enthusiastically endorsing them on one or two principles or ideas they profess. We must know, going in, if the candidate has mouth and charisma or ethics and morals. A big opportunity exists for the “We the People” to regain some of rights and our dignity in November of this year. Let’s use our votes wisely.
