As Clint Eastwood once demanded in the Dirty Harry movies “………go ahead, make my day”.
Democrats in Congress have decided now is the time for threats. If “we the people” don’t vote for THEIR candidate they will pass health care legislation anyway. Wow. The arrogance, the hubris, the shear unmitigated gall of these people is staggering. The more citizens, voters and companies tell them that this bill is not acceptable the more they dig in their collective heels. What in the name of all that’s holy are they thinking?
Well, like their lapdogs in the MSM they are thinking they know better than ” we the people” what’s good for us. They assume they are our parents not our employees. Working under the old adage “this is going to hurt me more than it hurts you” they are endeavoring to “save” us from ourselves. Of course in usual Democrat fashion they are trying to stop the paper cut from bleeding by cutting off the finger, as it were. They use fear and class envy to whip up the citizenry and then like the flim flam snake oil salesmen they are they try to sell us something we can’t afford, don’t need and that in the end will hurt us. Classic. They’re also thinking that it’s their ball and if we don’t play by their rules they’ll take the ball and go home. Liberals forget that it’s our ball, we paid for it, we voted for it and in the end we WILL take it back.
The Democrats in Congress are also thinking that once this is done, that’s it, no do overs. Wrong again Patty Patty Buk Buk. Anything they do short of murdering us in our beds, and don’t put that past them, can be undone. Nothing in this life is set in stone except death, not even taxes. As long as there is breath in our bodies, many of us will fight tyranny of any kind, from the left or from the righ. Of course we haven’t had to fight that fight yet, the left keeps us plenty busy.
So here we are at the hour of decision. What do we do? Well I’d say prayer might be in order but the way we’ve treated our Creator I’m not sure he’ll be inclined to lend us a hand. After all some sections of the populace have been very clear in their disregard, nay downright hysterical hostility toward Him and His adherents. The doctrine of loving one another, turning the other cheek and seeking out the lost lamb is so selfish, narcissistic, egomaniacal, I’m sure you’ll agree. Projection is a concept Liberals and Democrats do without even thinking about it. They think that way and so they assume everyone thinks they way they do. When it is pointed out to them that, no most of us are not self-absorbed hedonists they get all defensive, whine that we are mean and pitch a fit somewhat reminiscent of a two year old who is over due for his nap.
The solution to this situation is fairly simple. Vote the blighters out. Do some research, figure out who the best candidate is, not just for your state but for the country. They may not agree with everything you want them too but being a one issue voter or an “I’m voting against the other guy” voter has not worked very well so far. As much as I hate to say it ,voting along party lines is not helping either. Rino’s are just democrats dressed in red, donkeys in elephants clothing, as it were. If all politics are local, that, it seems to me is where to start. Vote for the candidate who believes in the Constitution, liberty, freedom and Democracy (with a BIG D). Encourage candidates that understand the meaning of the words service, sacred honor and integrity. Help with the campaigns of these folks with time, money and talent. Above all be engaged, aware and in-tune. The time where we could trust our politicians to do what they promised has passed, at least for the moment, due in large part to our unwillingness to take them to task, or to the woodshed for that matter. We have to step up, be the parent, be the adult.
It is past time to Cowboy Up, way passed time.
