21% of Americans in a 2012 Gallup Poll identify themselves as Liberal. This post is not for you. I am writing this piece for the millions of Americans who are not liberal, but have voted Democrat in the last couple election cycles. This article will have the best effect if readers cross post it to left leaning sites. I want to address people who don’t pay much attention to detail when it comes to politics and vote with their feelings. I used to be you. I want to talk to you about coming back home. Your interests involve all kinds of interesting and exciting subject matter, but politics is only for November. You watch Jon Stewart and Colbert at night and that’s about as close to news as you get. November rolls around and you remember all the old angry white men that want to starve out your Grandmother just so they can turn an evil profit for their corporate buddies. The racist GOP with their war on women and minorities is abhorrent, Chris Matthews says so. The evil insurance companies won’t even insure millions of Americans, thank goodness for the Affordable Care Act!
I want to bring you home. You may have received notice from your insurance company that your plan has been terminated and you are on your own. Now while I could sit here and chuckle a little at what you unknowingly voted to do to yourself, I will not. I just want to get you to look at things a little differently. While the folks you voted for lined up Alinsky style to ridicule and identify with names like terrorist and arsonist, a few true American patriots that were trying to save you. Ted Cruz and Mike Lee both risked political careers to keep you insulated from your own vote. Ruling class Republicans and Democrats tried everything in their power to ensure that ObamaCare’s talons of middle class dependency on government were impaled as deeply as possible. Pundits on all the networks and Jon Stewart et al made mockery of the opposition and “Tea Party”. Then, and the timing could not have been better, the ObamaCare website was launched. In just a few days the massive politically induced monstrosity was revealed for what it is. It is a perfect reflection of those who wrote the scope of work for it. Massive, confusing, dishonest, elusive, cumbersome and it doesn’t work.
The defections were widespread and immediate. Some shrill progressives shouted the obligatory denunciations of the GOP and tried to figure out if it was too late to blame George Bush. Oprah and a host of other Hollywood types that may have even convinced you how awesome this government takeover would be are shying away from the cameras. Democrats are scrambling to retire or get on the record for a delay of implementation. Union leaders are suddenly concerned with what Ted Cruz and Mike Lee have been saying for some time. The scandalous ruling class Republicans that were undermining the efforts to kill the beast are suddenly back on the pre vote team. Now you are scratching your head trying to figure out how this happened and why it was what you wanted.
Let’s look back on how this did happen. Never in our history has such a huge culture changing criminal enterprise been enacted by just one party. This is more than a liberal bill, this is a Leftist, Socialist bill at best and only 21% of Americans even claim Liberal. Deals were made, bribes were paid, arms were twisted and lies were told throughout. The bill passed the House by 7 votes with all 178 Republicans and 34 Democrats voting against it. In the Senate at 7:05 in the morning on Christmas Eve every single Democrat voted for this madness and all but one Republican voted against it (Sen Bunning did not vote). Please remember this as the future unfolds and the winds pick up against this monster.
Before I close I want to dispel a few myths that you probably have about Republicans in general, Conservatives and even more specifically “Tea Party” folks. Much misinformation has been spewed about us by Leftist propagandists, politicians and Republican ruling class DC types. Let me explain what I want, and this is why “Tea Party” is in quotation marks. We are loosely knit, have no leader there is no national headquarters or phone number, we just want the same things. I am going to go out on a limb and break this down. I want the truth. I want our federal government to be immediately reigned back in. I want the country to be re introduced to the Constitution and the Federalist Papers that go deeper still. I understand that the federal government has grown so big and powerful that even the Supreme Court has become corrupted. Proof of this is the US Government can force it’s citizens to buy something they don’t want, the court does some wordsmithing and deems that constitutional. I want to eliminate the Progressive income tax and replace it with something every citizen pays. There are several unconstitutional and / or unnecessary agencies that should be dramatically reduced or better yet completely eliminated. The bottom line is that the federal government does not even look like it should if you list the limits in the constitution.
Lastly I want you to do some homework. Make a list of the cities and states that are controlled by Democrats. Now research everything that is important to you and see how those cities and states stack up. Honest research should bring you home. Welcome.
