Don't Stop Now!!!

Shipwreck of Don Juan_Eugene Delacroix

Now is not the time to let up on the pressure to sink the government takeover of our health care. Obama has signaled that he would opt for a co-op type of public option similar to the Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac style GSE (government sponsored entity). This is nothing more than a back door approach to a government takeover. Not only is a Fannie Mae style option unacceptable but it is another recipe for financial disaster except now it will be our health care that will be threatened by such a huge mistake. Remember how the financial disaster we are currently experiencing was started at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? Now the leftists want to give us the same type of disaster for our health care? How nice of the congressional leftists and Obama to be thinking of us. We should all be thanking them instead of fighting them shouldn't we?

The leftists in Congress that call themselves the "Progressives" are in a tizzy that Obama has stepped back from a full frontal takeover. The extreme leftist Progressives want a complete takeover in the form of a single payer system run by the federal government as soon as they are able to pass that legislation and the public be damned. They have said so repeatedly and make no apologies for it and that's why they have expressed such anger with Obama. They want government run health care NOW!!!

Obama sees his numbers dropping and his handlers David Axlerod and Raum Emmanuel see they must try and slow down the process in light of the overwhelming opposition. The handlers see they must find ways to obfuscate and fool the public into thinking they are not trying for a government takeover when that is their very plan and has been all along. Listen to them, they tell you that is the plan, it's their minions in the leftist press that they use to try and fool everyone.

Now is the time to keep up the pressure on your representatives to go back to the drawing board and come up with sensible solutions to health care reform. The government option is out of the question and they have to be forced to understand that. They can change some of the insurance laws to open competition to the 1300 insurance companies that now exist. They can do a lot of things to improve and build upon a free market system that will lead to a better system for all. It is after all the government that has interfered with the free market that has caused so many of the problems that exist just as it is with the housing, financial and auto markets. To let the government run our health care and let them determine who will and won't get which treatments is a disaster waiting to happen.

The reform must contain provisions that has reform for the tort system that diverts too much precious money to a small group of lawyers in the name of malpractice law suits. The money doctors, nurses and hospitals have to spend on insurance to protect themselves from greedy underhanded lawyers could be used to help insure and care for those that currently do not have access to health care. This is going to be difficult because after all, most of the people that are sent to the US Congress to represent us are lawyers. The current proposed legislation from the US House and the US Senate have no tort reform provisions at all, none! Does that surprise you? It should be no surprise that lawyers are the most self serving groups in the US Congress, the laws they make are designed to profit them in some way shape or form.

Also, among those that expect to gain assistance to health care must be legal citizens and be able to prove it. Just as the democrats have demanded of their constituents to see a picture ID to get into their Town Hall Meetings to discuss health care reform, those that expect others to pay for their health care must be legal US citizens and be able to prove it. These are some of the major issues you must express to your representatives when you speak with them.

Obama and his democrat leftists in the Congress are not going to let up trying to takeover as much of your life and the US economy as they can get away with. You must be just as fervent in protecting your freedoms.

Brazen Obama lies Right to Your Face

So Obama and the democrats say "this is not about a government takeover of the US Health Care system and the elimination of private insurance". Well, Obama and the democrats are lying right to your face. Obama and the democrats have no interest in listening to your opinions, all Obama and the democrats would like to do is have complete government control over the way you get health care and more, much more!

Obama has already taken control over a majority of the US Banking system and he has taken control over the two of the US car manufacturers. Obama ordered one to be sold off to Fiat against the wishes of Fiat stock holders and many in the industry. Obama took over General Motors and fired the CEO who was already in the process of turning the company around. Obama and democrats are going for the socialist brass ring and are trying to pass as much legislation through as they can before the American people wake up and see they have just lost their freedoms.

Oh sure, it's easy for them to say that their health care reform isn't about a government takeover, they have a lapdog press and their skewed reporting to refute such charges. The democrats have been telling us for all these years they would do exactly what they are doing now given the chance. Obama and the democrats believe they know what's best for all of us and you will see them fight as hard as they can to make that crucial leap to takeover health care because it is the single most powerful weapon they can accumulate to control every aspect of your life. Obama stands at the podium and lies directly at your face when he says "that his plan is not a government takeover of the health care system". Watch this and tell me any different.

Clinton Goes Off the Rails

PRR-GG1 4871 at Frazer, PA - 1960

The pressure is getting to the democrats; they seem to be on the defensive quite a bit lately. Today while Hillary Clinton was in Africa on a tour as the Secretary of State, she took some questions from students. One student asked her a question through an interpreter and the train wreck that is Hillary Clinton began. Clinton and most of her democrat colleagues are so self-absorbed they can no longer tell what reality is. As an example; recently US Senator Barbra Boxer from (d) California angrily dressed down a US Army General for calling her Ma'am instead of Senator at a recent Senate hearing on Afghanistan. Boxer exclaimed indignantly to the Army General "I worked hard to get this position, call me Senator". Arrogance just drips from the way Boxer talks down to others, even Army Generals whom are people that actually did work hard to get where they are.

Hillary Clinton is still steaming that the election was stolen from her by upstart Obama and she just hasn't gotten over it yet. Yes, folks these are the people that won the election and it hasn't taken as much time as I thought it would for them to show their true colors. Imagine a diplomat, and not just any diplomat but the US Secretary of State the highest ranking US diplomat snapping at some African college student for asking a simple question. It's going to be a long three and half years for the American people.

Say No (loudly) to Government Run Health Care

Crew of USS Constitution defeating the H.M.S Guerriere August 19th 1812

OK folks, just as the crew of the USS Constitution defeated the H.M.S Guerriere in August of 1812 it's now time for all of us to man the 24 pounders and sink the proposed government takeover of our health care as proposed by Obama and the democrats. You need to make up your signs and go to the town hall meetings to let your representatives know you don't want this bad medicine that Obama and the democrats are proposing. You have to call their offices, send them letters and show up at any place that your Congressional representatives and Senators are going to be. This is s fight for your freedom and your children's freedom. If Obama and the democrats get control over your health care and your digitalized medical records your freedoms will be a thing of the past. When you get older and are in need of essential care to extend your life they will be able to deny that care because you will become too expensive to keep alive. They will be able to deny you treatment and doctor care for whatever reason they want and there will be no appeal. Not only that, they will be in control of your records and given the recent debacles such as "Cash for Clunkers" do you really want these people to be able to manage your health and your documentation on the internet. Oh geez, now I'm really angry!!!!

Remember when Obama said if you're in pain take a pain killer and don't worry about the hip replacement. Words have meaning and occasionally Obama does let the truth about his plans slip threw his clammy facade.

If anyone needs to know where their Congressional representatives are going to be over the August break there is a link to the US Congress over on my sidebar and it will take you to your representatives web site and there you will find their schedule. My Father used to always say that I ate like the Russians were in Camden. Now I'm saying to you fight for freedom like the Bolsheviks are in Washington because they are.

Any questions?
