With the “Republicans In Name Only” caucus cowering in the light of negative press and their own innate lacking of a spine, Congress has cobbled together enough support to lift the debt ceiling, “reopen” the government (with back pay so it’s like it never happened) and American’s are still forced to buy something that they may not want just because they happen to be alive.
Such a productive fortnight.
Why do the RINO’s always think that if they go along to get along that somehow the media and those on the left will all of a sudden become all lovey-dovey with them.
The reality is more like this cartoon from ComicallyIncorrect.com
My real beef is with the individual mandate. From Nancy “we need to pass it so we can find out what’s in it” Pelosi to the betrayal of Chief Justice Roberts to the cowardice of the Republicans in facilitating its passing in the first place when they should have done everything in their power to stop it to now, not having the stones to do what it takes. All of this hypocrisy, cowardice and politics has forced every American, whether they want to or not, to suckle at the teat of the federal government.
The American people MUST buy health insurance or pay an ever growing penalty.
And here I thought liberals HATED the draft. But that is what they are championing now. We are all drafted into the service of Obamacare. Yet unlike the draft there are no deferments for us (businesses yes, but not the people).
Unlike the Vietnam protests against the draft, anyone protesting against Obamacare does not get the glowing media coverage picture righteous fighters who believe in their cause but rather are portrayed as racists and extremists.
Liberty is dying in America. The more we are forced to do something against our will the more it dies. The more control the government wraps it’s tentacles around squeezing off our air the more freedom is choked out.
All ready the right that shall not be infringed is more infringed then any other right.
Yet gun rights are not the only rights being whittled away.
- We need permits to assemble.
- We cannot pray in school thereby prohibiting the free exercise of religion
- Our right to be free from unreasonable search and seizure is being eradicated (Terry Stops, Stop and Frisk)
- Our home and lands can be seized by eminent domain which is worse than simply housing soldiers
- Entering treaties that threaten American Sovereignty with regards to our right to keep and bear arms
- Executive orders replacing actual legislation. Executive orders eliminate representation…kind of a big deal in a REPUBLIC.
All the while, further down the rabbit hole we go.
2014 and 2016 may be the most important elections in American history, for if things are allowed to continue on the way they are, there will not be an America for long.
On a side note, if you find all this doom and gloom disconcerting (for I know I do) and you need to brighten your mood, explain to the next gun hating zealot you run across that the one benefit of Obamacare is that it has now set precedent making it legal for a government to require that everyone within a town, county, state or country to own a firearm or pay a tax not to.
Should be good for a few moments of amusement as their mind gets blown.
