Today’s Unconscionable Government Actions
I found this column in today’s Examiner.com. It is written by Anthony G. Martin, who also blogs at Liberty Sphere. He covers the material well and paints a picture of the extreme arrogance we are dealing with.
However, we must remember the Democrats, led by Pelosi, Reid, and Obama, know their window of opportunity is closing. In about a year that window will be closed as Republicans and conservative will sweep away their temporary super-majority. If anything last Tuesday’s repudiation encourages them rather than chastens them. It encourages them to move with a sense of urgency knowing they must act before the public can throw them out. Why, you may be asking? Because a sweeping take-over of health care give Democrats power. The more people latched onto the government tit they more people are beholden to the Democrats. They are enslaving the American people while the idiot masses gladly extend their hands for a bit more money, never suspecting it is they who are paying for it. In more ways than they realize.
That is the only word one can find that adequately describes the actions of an extremist U.S. government barely 2 days out from a clear repudiation by the voters.
Unconscionable. A most startling word that denotes the lack of a conscience.
There is no other way to suitably or more accurately describe the actions of the U.S.Congress today, initiated by the Democratic leadership, even as hundreds if not thousands of conservatives descended upon Washington in a Capitol Building protest led by Rep. Michelle Bachmann.
Bachmann’s plan included a rally on the Capitol steps to decry the push by Nancy Pelosi and other extremists to shove government-run healthcare down the throats of the American people, followed by a citizen-led person-to-person campaign as the protesters seek out and talk to their own Representatives face-to-face.
These stalwart Patriots arrived in Washington just in the nick of time, it would appear.
Reuters reports that a Senate panel led by California Leftist Barbara Boxer approved a ‘climate change’ measure over the objections of the GOP, which boycotted the vote en mass. The bill essentially cripples the oil, coal,and gas industries by mandating ‘carbon emissions’ restrictions that would have the effect of hampering the ability of Americans to say warm, cool, and drive to work…you know, that little thing we call ‘LIVING.’
Bloomberg is reporting that despite the voice of the citizens in repudiating ObamaCare and other Obama initiatives in Tuesday’s vote, the Democratic leadership in the House is proceeding with plans for a vote on the massive 2-trillion-dollar government takeover of healthcare. The vote could come as early as tomorrow or Saturday.
And then, in perhaps the most outrageous action of all, the U.S. Senate, led by Leftist extremists such as Harry Reid, John Kerry, Chris Dodd, Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, and Chuck Schumer, voted to BLOCK a simple question from being asked on the upcoming U.S. Census.
That question? ‘Are you a U.S. citizen?’
The whole purpose of the census is to discover how many CITIZENS we have in the U.S. for the purpose of setting House district boundaries, the number of representatives allowed to the states, as well as billions of dollars in federal money.
When illegal aliens are included in the mix, which the Democrats wish to do, an unfair advantage is created in favor of those states that have the most illegals–states such as California.
Such a thing is not only unconstitutional but criminal.
Since law enforcement won’t do that job in holding our elected officials accountable to the law and the Constitution, is it time for ordinary citizens to place these enemies of the rule of law under ‘citizens’ arrest?’
No one is above the law, and extremist illegal measures implemented by elected officials should be met by extreme action on the part of the citizens.
This is a clear attack on our liberties. And, as Barry Goldwater is famous for saying, ‘Let me remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And let me also remind you that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.’
