Is this the End?

"After emailing, calling, writing, marching and mailing pink slips to my congressmen I began to realize this Health Care thing was a done deal from the get go. Her Royal Majesty, Queen Pelosi just had to decide who in her party would take the hit, possibly ending their political careers. I don't think many Dems even had a choice. They were pawns in her game. Loyal comrades ready to die for the cause of unrestrained Liberalism.

So now instead of writing and emailing I am now targeting. Don't get mad, get even. There are 4 Dems in my state that are up for election in 2010, two of them voted against the bill but what the hay...a Dem is a Dem, an enemy an enemy. I will now focus all the energy I was putting into trying to convince these congressmen to listen to the voters and start focusing on getting rid of these fawning Pelosi pawns next November. If they were willing to fall on Pelosi's sword then let me help make sure they don't survive their wounds. If you don't think we "teabaggers" were fired up before.....just you wait until November 2010."
This is a comment on an American Thinker article.

"Targeting" the ENEMY.

Might as well call it what it is.

The original article ends with:
"So that is one reason health care "reform" continues its unholy march toward the President's desk. The other? Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) put it best in a phone interview last Thursday. The Dems, he says, have "the courage of their convictions" in regard to health care. They are true believers. They are going to push this forward, regardless of the electoral consequences. My own suspicion is the same: that Pelosi and the Democratic leadership are perfectly willing to march their party off a cliff if it means achieving the long-held liberal dream of government health care.
Having spoken to a number of GOP players on the Hill this last week, I can assure my readers of two things. One: Congressional Republicans, their staff, and their allies are focused and determined. They are fully aware of the dangers of ObamaCare and are working 24/7 to secure its defeat. And two: there just aren't enough of them.
Our Republic is passing from history."

  1. I'm taking heart from the commenters lately. There was a damn fool on Big Gov.com, who argued for electing candidates with an "R" after their names ("A RINO is better than no R at all."), and the commenter's rejected his message and ripped him to shreds.

    People are slowly getting it.

    I put up a post today, that quotes from a speech that de Tocqueville made in the French parliament, when he was trying to wake them from the socialist sleep they were blindly heading for. A few key lines of his speech identifying what socialism means, are,

    ""... an incessant, vigorous and extreme appeal to the material passions of man..."
    "...always present, is an attack, either direct or indirect, on the principle of private property..."
    "Now, a third and final trait, one which, in my eyes, best describes socialists of all schools and shades, is a profound opposition to personal liberty and scorn for individual reason, a complete contempt for the individual."
    "...They call, in fact, for the forfeiture, to a greater or less degree, of human liberty, [Further signs of assent.] to the point where, were I to attempt to sum up what socialism is, I would say that it was simply a new system of serfdom.

    We need to turn our attention to the Senate, and attempt to stop this monstrosity there - but if it does pass, we'll need to turn our attention to 2010, and turn our attention NOT to jabbering about how socialized medicine will hurt, ruin or destroy healthcare or even the economy - it will, but that is playing on the leftist's turf.

    In a battle between our pointing out hard facts, and their offering up a free pass to sugar candy mountain, the sweet tooth will always win over a people who don't understand the deeper risks.

    The real job before us is to Educate our friends and relatives to what de Tocqueville understood about all variations of socialism. And, as in a comment I tried to leave on a Bad Bad JuJu (wouldn't go through from some reason) post you linked to the other day,

    "...What we've got to do, in the next two years, is Educate the core of the American people, to what has been de-educated out of them. The meaning of the ideas which lay behind the Constitution, and why it was written in the way it was - and to take vocal political action to restore to this land, a nation of Laws, not men.

    Here's a good place to start.

    It's not going to be easy... but it'll be fun to tell the grandkids about!

    France has nearly passed away into history, and we are heading in that direction as well, but we can still change course if we shake ourselves and our neighbors awake. Freedom and Liberty demand conscious attention, they will not linger with those who take them for granted.
