Today the Senate voted on the Cloture to stop the debate on defunding Obamacare; it passed 79-19. Than Harry Reid had the audacity to come to the floor and begin his usual Tea Party bashing, calling Constitutional Conservatives anarchists who do not respect the rule of law. I find that astounding coming from a man who hasn’t the foggiest notion what respect is, let alone having any knowledge of the Rule of Law whatsoever! Neither he, nor the democrats have shown any evidence of this over the past 5 years and 9 months. Than to add insult to injury, the Senate passed the Continuing Resolution (CR), funding the government thru November 15th and stripping the bill of the Defunding of Obamacare 54-44.
The hypocrisy on Capitol Hill is astonishing, that they would pass a bill that will so clearly hurt the American people. But what do they care, they are exempt from Obamacare. They get to keep their First Class medical insurance, while the rest of us surfs are losing jobs, losing hours, losing our healthcare plans, or our premiums are skyrocketing! The President, the Senate, the congress, the Supreme Court, big corporations who are in Obama’s back pocket and of course the Muslims are all exempt from this train wreck called Obamacare. What a slap in the face. But what is more disgusting to me is that the GOP caved; when push came to shove, they wimped out on the American people. They did not have the cojones to stand up and fight the good fight. They allowed the Progressives to run ram shod over them and over the American people.
I don’t recognize my country anymore, it is as though I have fallen down the rabbit hole and entered the bizarre world of the Mad Hatter! Where everything is upside down and nothing makes any sense at all. The Red Queen (Obama) has taken over everything and much like Alice I feel I must be dreaming! But soon I realize that I must fight my way out of this ghoulish, macabre, twisted dark nightmare back to the daylight where life makes sense and I’m no longer a pawn on a giant chess game. So although we have been hit, and knocked down, the getting back up is up to us. We can either choose to accept defeat or we can prepare for the battle ahead. That battle is the 2014 mid-term elections. That is where we must make our stand, and fight the evil Red Queen, and restore Wonderland to her former glory!
The outcome depends entirely on us and our ability to remain engaged and for some to become engaged in the process. It was John Adams who said: “[America’s] glory is not dominion, but liberty. Her march is in the march of the mind. She has a spear and a shield: but the motto upon her shield is FREEDOM, INDEPENDENCE, PEACE. This has been her Declaration: this has been, as far as her necessary intercourse with the rest of mankind would permit, her practice.”
We must pick up that shield and carry it proudly, with honor, dignity and grace, as Senator Ted Cruz did so eloquently; when he told the Senate that the problem with Washington is that the elected officials are not listening to the people. When he told them that there is a “sense of despair among the American people because no matter what [we] say, the elected officials won’t listen, because they are more interested in themselves, more interested in getting an exemption for members of Congress and the Senate from Obamacare than they are in fixing the problem for the American people.”
As Ben Franklin said, “Freedom is not a gift bestowed upon us by other men, but a right that belongs to us by the laws of God and nature.”
So when “We the People,” embrace that one thought, that our freedom is not a gift from the elected officials in Washington but a right that belongs to us by God and nature, than we will be a force to be reckoned with. The only way Washington will listen is if we rise up, like a Phoenix from the ashes and reclaim our birthright, the right which belongs to us; the right that was bestowed upon us by the laws of God and nature; FREEDOM and LIBERTY!
“Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”
~ Patrick Henry
