I am finally going to finish this

I have started to write this post several times over the past week. It just seems like there is always something to get in the way. Anyway, I am going to start out with a quote from an ordinary citizen. She is a mother of two and lives in Pennsylvania. This is what she said to Sen. Arlen Spectre, the turncoat who changes his party affiliation whenever it seems to fit his political aspirations.

"I don’t believe this is just about health care. It’s not about TARP. It’s not about left and right. This is about the systematic dismantling of this country."

This is exactly what needs to be echoed throughout this country RIGHT NOW!! These people in Washington have long gone away from being representatives of the people. They are full fledged in representing their own, self absorbed political agenda. They have no interest in doing what the people want. All they care about is expanding the power of the government so that it intrudes on our very lives. They want to be able to tell us what we can and cannot do. The people in Washington are attacking the very Constitution upon which this country was founded. You already know that the Health Care Reform Bill that is in the House right now, will take away our freedom of choice when it comes to our healthcare. Here are just a couple of more examples of how the Constitution is coming under attack.

I received a phone call this past weekend from the NRA. Now, I will admit, that it was partially a solicitation for membership. I would gladly join, if I could. They mentioned something that brought a chill down my spine, right to the bone. The lady said that there is a treaty, proposed by Mexico, before the UN that would ban the private ownership of guns. That's right, if the United States were to sign this treaty, it would violate the Second Amendment to our Constitution, our right to bear arms. And, to top it off, right now, we have one of the most anti-gun people in the country as our Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. So, this is not just some idle thing that we know would never be signed. It is something that is REAL and a THREAT to the Constitution itself.

The second thing that I have for you is the fact that people in the White House are trying to silence Glen Beck for things that he has said on his program. That's right. Van Jones, the self-proclaimed communist and the Czar for Green Jobs (what the heck is that anyway?), is the co-founder of a left-wing political group called Color of Change. This group exists "to strengthen Black America's political voice. Our goal is to empower our members—Black Americans and our allies—to make government more responsive to the concerns of Black Americans and to bring about positive political and social change for everyone." This group has actually contacted companies who advertise on Glen Beck's television program and threatened to boycott their products if they did not pull their advertisements from the program. There are several stories I have read about this and am linking to them (just click on the names of the websites). The first is on Human Events. The second is at RedState. And, finally, the third is at the Capital Research Center. This is a clear attack on the very backbone of what everyone in the United States looks to when they talk about their freedoms. THE very basic freedom of Freedom of Speech. The First of the Amendments to the Constitution of the United States of America.

The king liberal himself, when he was interviewed early in his political career, even said himself that he believes that the Constitution is too restrictive to the Federal Government. DUH!!! YOU IDIOT!! It's supposed to be. He says that the Constitution lays out what the government can't do, but, doesn't tell the government what it MUST do. I will tell you what you MUST do, get the hell out of our way and let the people decide what they must do for themselves. Let the country return to the way things have worked in this country. The government was never intended to do things for us. It was designed to be a means by which our states could come together and provide for our common defense and PROMOTE (NOT PROVIDE FOR) the general welfare.

Too many people in this country have forgotten what it is like to work for something. The satisfaction one gets from knowing that the accomplishments you achieve are from the work that you put into the endeavor. That things are not handed to you. You have to work for them. The government's only job as far as this goes is to get our of our way.

The king liberal, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and all of the other Democrats that seem to be getting the media's ear, have now turned to vilifying normal, everyday people who are concerned about their future, showing up at the town-hall meetings, calling them angry mobs who are brandishing swastikas and such. They are all paid hacks sent to represent the EVIL insurance companies. However, it was only after the king liberal himself, told the SEIU and ACORN to help him out with these townhall meetings that things have turned violent.

Oh yes, I just heard, again, something that I truly think is hilarious. The king liberal keeps saying that a public option in health care would not cause private insurance companies to go out of business. The fact that he is truly lying about this is not what I find funny. It's the example he uses.....He says that FedEx and UPS run very healthy businesses, it's the Post Office that has all of the problems. Now, he is using the fact that the Post Office has issues to explain away the fact that a private option won't necessarily mean the end of private insurance, while at the same time giving a very valid example of why the American people do not want the government running our healthcare. The government can't run the health care programs they have now, the Post Office or Social Security without them going bankrupt. Shoot, privately run government entities such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac can't even keep themselves out of trouble.

It is time to tell these people in Washington we are sick of the job they are doing and they WILL pay for what they are doing by losing their jobs at the next election if they don't STOP!!

P.S. I do have to apologize for a word I typed while writing this. I usually don't use words like that, however, I am growing more and more frustrated with the direction that this country is going and could not think of any other word that would truly convey that frustration.
