March 21: How liberty dies

What we’re seeing in Washington these days seems to be following the same script from the Star Wars movies. The Emperor and Senate created the illusion of a healthcare crisis to expand the powers of the government over our lives and it worked. The Republic will soon be reorganized…into what, your guess is as good as mine.

Keep the faith, because this is only round 1.

Liberty forever, freedom for all!

    Passage of this health care bill will become a rallying cry much as, "remember the Alamo" and the patriots of this nation will answer in the same way the Texans of old did—a scorching defeat of liberals at the polls and a cleansing of them from positions of power in Washington.

    You know Ron; I actually think it is the beginning of the end for the Democratic Party. Just wait until all those young voters that are caught up in the NCAA tournament find out that have to purchase healthcare. These kids don't like be lectured and told what to do by their parents. Now the government is parenting; lots of young votes going to turn against the regime.

    I've posted this on my blog today. Sorry for the style, English is my second language.

    I want my country back!

    It seems like the ultra-liberals have been able to bribe and coerce enough congress-scumbags to pass the Obamacare. And as I said before, there would be hell to pay for this monstrosity. Obamacare is the very definition of unlimited government – the threat of which was forwarned by the Founding Fathers more than two centuries ago. The federal government, which is up to its neck in debt and unfunded liabilities, decided to launch the biggest entitlement of all times – the medical care for all. The spending on this new entitlement will surely dwarf many if not most of Federal programs and will make the bankruptcy of federal and state governments inevitable. The time of reckoning is at hand, brothers and sisters. Obamacare is the last breath of the liberal order – and it’s time to take back America from the party of thieves and looters.

    All patriots of this nation must stand together and fight back. United we will win! There is no blue or red America anymore – there are only those that believe in America the beautiful, America the free, America the shining city on the hill – and those that believe in welfare socialism and government tyranny. Today, we fight not only for our personal well-being – but for the dignity and honor of this country, for the right to look into the eyes of our children and say – we defended this nation from the perils of socialism. In November 2010, we will answer the crucial questions of our times – are American people worthy of the efforts of the Founding Fathers? Will American people have to right to proudly say “We are Americans” – or they will forever live in infamy and indignity of welfare socialism?

    I am glad that the Democratic Party passed the Rubicon. From now on, there is no coming back for the liberal elites, no talk of compromise and middle-ground. Today, it is abundantly clear that we either will live in Obama-America or America that our Founding Father envisioned. You cannot have both.

    The November elections will be the most important elections in our lifetime. If you don’t vote for America in November – you don’t deserve to be called an American.

    I've thought of this clip a few times, especially at the last state of the union.

    Very well said HA!

    Trestin, I thought this clip was appropriate for the time. Thanks for dropping by.

    Free market and freedom no longer exists in the U.S. and hasn't since before 1913. We have only had a facade of liberty.

    Thanks for dropping by Faithfulinprayer. We can get it back but it will take effort and perseverance on our part. Stay the course!
