Health care passes; world doesn’t end.


Health care passes; world doesn’t end.

That my friends is the problem. If upon passage of this maniacal conglomeration of liberal idiocy the world came to a screeching halt and Wall Street collapsed no one would doubt the evil contained therein. The truth is that this health care bill is benignly insidious.

To draw a parallel: health care reform is a lot like a greasy hamburger. If people ate just one and died of a heart attack there is a pretty good chance that everyone would understand that they were dangerous. The reality is that you can eat hamburgers three times a day for years before you gum up the works to the point of a heart attack. You can drink whiskey for years before pickling your liver. Like both of the preceding examples health care will not kill you quickly but rest assured it will eventually work its evil.

The democratic establishment is counting on the fact that the passage of this bill will not be heralded by the four horsemen of the Apocalypse. In fact, the average person will notice little if any change to begin with. This is intentional. The major provisions of the health care bill do not kick in for several years. I wonder why that is?

At the risk of going out on a conspiracy limb I would venture to say that the delayed implementation of this plan is a deliberate attempt to reduce the blow to the Democrats. Stay with me here.

History has shown that the memory of the American public is short and that their attention span is, at best, strained by the daily deluge of work, family and prime time television. If it were otherwise we would not find ourselves where we currently are. In other words; if people were “plugged” in politicians would never have been able to take us this far down the road to oblivion.

The debate (debacle) over health care has worn on for over a year. Even those of us who are actively involved in political issues are starting to lose a step from shear exhaustion; so much more the average Joe who gets his news in ten second sound bites.

All of this is an overwhelming confluence of political malfeasance, voter apathy, and congressional antipathy.

So I guess the Democrats are hoping that once they jam this bill down our collective throat we will all go home, flip on American Idol, and go quietly into that dark night. That’s what they are hoping/planning on. If we do that they win.

What we need to do is grab a few no-doze, some coffee, the number to every one of the S.O.B.s who vote for this monstrosity, and spend the next eight months letting them and the rest of the political world know that we are not going anywhere.

They may win this battle but the war is not over; not by a long shot. They may get this bill passed but we must make them pay at the voting booth. Its small recompense I know but it will send a clear message to the next crop of political hacks. We need to let them know things are different; we are awake, we are watching and we are ready to act.

  1. Personally, I'd like to see Reid and Pelosi pass constitutionally unauthorized Obamacare so that they blow themselves off the political map.

    That said, here's why Obama, Reid and Pelosi are in contempt of the Constitution that they have hypocritically sworn to defend. They are unthinkingly basing their so-called constitutional authority to make healthcare legislation on perversions of the Commerce Clause by pro-big federal government justices in the 1930s and 40s.

    Eight of these justices were nominated nominated by FDR, an enemy of the Constitution, and caved in to perverting the Commerse Clause to give the green light to illegal spending legislation inspired by FDR. The justices did so by scandalously ignoring state sovereignty statutes like Article V and the 10th Amendment when deciding cases which tested the limits of Congress’s powers. But here's what's really going on.

    Given that the federal Constitution is silent about public healthcare, the 10th Amendment automatically reserves government power to regulate healthcare to the states, not the Oval Office and Congress.

    In fact, the USSC has already decided that Congress has no business sticking its big nose in the medical practice.

    “Direct control of medical practice in the states is obviously beyond the power of Congress.” –Linder v. United States, 1925. http://supreme.justia.com/us/268/5/case.html

    So presuming that they really know that they don't have the constitutional authority to make healthcare legislation, Obama, Reid and Pelosi are criminally ignoring the following.

    Article V requires Reid and Pelosi to rally Congress to propose a healthcare amendment to the states for ratification. And should the states choose to ratify such an amendment, then Congress would have the power to make Obamacare legislation.

    On the other hand, the states can always choose not to ratify such an amendment, in which case Congress remains without constitutional authority to regulate healthcare.

    In the meanwhile, Obama, Reid and Pelosi are treasonously basing Obamacare legislation on constitutionally nonexistent federal government powers. So they might just as well make legislation to build a federal prison for corrupt presidents and congressmen and move into it.

    The bottom line is that Constitution-defending patriots have a big mess to clean up in DC in this year's midterm elections.
