At this point, it looks like the bill will pass.
Now begins the most disagreeable time of our lives. The political battles will rage for years. Obama – who came into office promising perfect brotherhood among men – has thrown us into long-lasting enmity and bitterness.
Obama has determined that we are to be his subjects. And subject we will be.
Sometime tonight, Democrats will indicate their contempt for their fellow countrymen. The bill will probably pass. Great rejoicing will erupt on the left. But it will be a shallow celebration. Two thirds of the country will sit by, a stony look of determination on their faces. This is not over.
And so we now go into endless, useless, totally avoidable strife.
No one wants this; no one needs it. The bill will ruin health care in America. Not in a day, not in a year. But it will ruin it as sure as the sun rises in the east. The debt burden on our children and grandchildren will make their lives less bright, less hopeful, less promising. They will curse our memory.
Obama wants to erect a European-style socialist state in America. The people do not want it; the people have never wanted it; they detest the idea. But Lord Obama decrees it, and it shall be so. His mind is firm. He will not waver. Due to a fluke, he has the votes. Yet he is a fool, and the nation will suffer dearlyfor it.
In a moment of panic, in a moment of weakness, we elected a smooth leader, a man who promised to make our many troubles go away. We were upset with one party, and we elected the other one. That party hid their real intentions until they were in office.
Health care is the first step. There will be other steps. That much they have promised us.
The bill provides for 17,000 new IRS agents to pry into the lives of those that do not comply with Obama’s dictates. An army of men to keep an eye on the restless populace.
In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson said of the King of England:
“He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.
Obama decrees the same. Our substance is to be eaten out; we are to be harassed, never free from the dictates of an odious and smothering government. We are free no more. Our loyalties must now be to the state. The state will decide what duties we owe our fellow man. And then they will enforce the performance of those duties – by force if need be.
It is the beginning of a rough period in American history. The turmoil begins tomorrow.
We have seen how casually they view the Constitution. They would have preferred to “deem” the bill to be passed, in clear contravention of the Constitution. We have seen their judges usurp the rights of the legislature, declaring themselves to be the preeminent authority on all matters American. With a wave of their hand, they construct whole new sections of the Constitution, invisible, airy and insubstantial. They find unsaid words and unprinted phrases in magical “penumbras and emanations” which appear only to their eyes.
Now, our freedoms are to be curtailed, our children’s future endangered, our very lives to be fettered by the straps and chains of government gone mad. Big Brother is Watching.
But – this is just the beginning. This is where the giant stirs.
All things are ready if our minds be so.
By the mass, our hearts are in the trim.
