Watch this video and then ask yourself this one question.....If the liberal Air America can see the lies that are being told, why doesn't the regular media see it?
This explains why the Administration is in full campaign mode. They want you to buy into the lies, just like the majority of voters did in November. The king liberal will say anything that he thinks you want to hear. He did the same thing during the election. He said anything he had to say to get elected. He offered "Hope and Change." Well, when he started surrounding himself with people to form his administration, he basically said that it would be stupid for someone with his lack of experience to not use people from the last Democratic administration. A lot of these people have been in Washington for years and know how to make things work to their advantage. Not a lot of change. He promised that bills would be available to the public to read and that every lawmaker would have at least 48 hours to read the bill before they voted on it. Then, he proceeded to set deadlines on Congress that totally invalidated this promise. He promised that his "stimulus" bill would keep unemployment below 8%. Now, it is pushing 10% with at least 15 states over 10%. This man said that he is a new comer that would not allow politics as usual. However, he has shown that he is very savvy in how to get his way in Washington and he has done NOTHING to change how things work in Washington.
He believes that the Constitution is restrictive to the government. Well, guess what......IT WAS DESIGNED THAT WAY!!
It appears that the public is finally starting to wake up from the fantasy that Obama and the Democrats have tried to sell this country. They are starting to make their voices truly heard. The American people are forcing the Democrats to show their true colors. The fact that they don't think any more of the American people than to call them an angry mob that are brandishing swastikas says a ton as to what they think of us. They want to RULE us, not govern us.
We need to keep the pressure on. Keep letting our representatives know what we think and want. That is the only way we are going to stop the Democrats from taking over our lives and telling us how we need to live.

I have been reading a lot of articles lately that have attacked anyone who has the gumption to speak out against the health care reform bill that is in the House of Representatives as either ignorant or racist (or both). So, I guess that makes me both.
This is the typical type of attack that the liberals like to throw down. They vilify anyone who will speak out against their agenda. What ever happened to free speech? What ever happened to the fact that it is our responsibility to question this or any other administration as then Senator Hillary Clinton said in 2003. I guess that only applies to Democrats questioning and protesting a Republican Administration.
As far as ignorant.........I feel that anyone who will blindly follow what they hear and read without confirming things for themselves does so out of ignorance. Therefore, they are ignorant. The king liberal has done everything that he said he would do. Even since before he was a Senator. People just weren't listening. He speaks and people fawn over him. They don't actually listen to what he says. He contradicts himself, most of the time in the same speech. Shoot, we can't even call the House health care bill his idea. He admitted, early in his campaigning for it, that he hadn't even read it. If he hasn't read it, how can he speak intelligibly about it? I call that ignorant. One of the senior Democrats in the House of Representatives even admitted that there is no way he can read all of these bills. He said that it would take two days read it and two lawyers to explain it to him. If you don't have time to read and understand the bill and all of the ramifications, you shouldn't support it and then go out and try to sell it to the American people. I call that ignorant.
I have read the majority of this bill, and as far as I can tell, it is a piece of crap that is designed to expand government into controlling our health care. Designed to infringe on our right to choose our health insurance (or even to have health insurance at all), our right to choose our doctors, and even, with the consult of our doctor the type of care we get. It is designed to move us away from private insurance to a single payer system, the federal government. Just like the king liberal had said at least twice while he was running for the office he currently holds. See, we didn't see him say those things because the media never showed them to us. He said it twice while speaking to union groups. The very people that he helped take over two of the three automakers in the United States. He never said it in his big televised speeches, because he knew that if the "common folk" knew that that is how he felt, he would never get elected. This is no dumb man. The problem is, he thinks that We the People are a bunch of ignorant people who will believe anything he says. Well, the people are actually getting out there and letting him know that we don't believe him anymore.
I have one question. If this HR3200 is such a good bill for reforming the NUMBER ONE health care system in the world, then why do the Democrats have to be so hard on the campaign trail and attack anyone who dares to question it? If it were that good of a bill, they would not have to campaign for it. It would speak for itself.
So, since I am totally, 100% opposed to HR3200, then, I guess I am an ignorant racist. I will accept this totally unfounded label and wear it proudly (even though I have read the bill).

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.

Alright, as promised, I am going to weigh in on this Health Care issue. I had actually intended to write this a few days ago, however, some things came up and I wasn't able to get to a place to truly do this justice, so, here it goes.
I am happy about two things with the monstrosity that the king liberal is trying to pass off as Health Care Reform. The first is the fact that it didn't get the chance to be rammed through Congress. There was enough opposition from BOTH sides to stop it. The second thing is the fact that America is starting to truly speak out. It isn't just behind the scenes and in polls anymore. There are people showing up at the town hall meetings all across the country and telling the politicians how they truly feel about the health care issue. Not only that, they are starting to get under the skin of the liberals.
Nancy Pelosi has even gone as far as saying that people are showing up brandishing swastikas. Several other Democrats have accused these American citizens of being part of an organized effort led by anybody from Rush Limbaugh to the insurance companies. They just can't stand the idea that people have actually read this thing and are not going to just roll over and let them take over. As a matter of fact, one person that has been said to be one of the leaders has been identified as someone who actually has a facebook page with something like 15 friends and a twitter page with about 5 followers. And, the king liberal himself has even said that they need to hit back twice as hard. I wonder if he intended the violence that happened in Tampa Bay when he said that. It seems that a Democratic official actually slapped someone at a town hall meeting.
So, what is everyone getting all worked up over? No matter what the king liberal and all of his cronies tell us, if this bill gets signed into law, we will have to be on a government approved health plan withing 5 yrs. This, of course, means that we will NOT get to keep our current health insurance like Obama says. Also, this bill provides for you to get counseling about your "end-of-life" care. There are also many cuts to Medicare. You combine all of this together, and you get a government take over of the health care system. The same government that can't seem to run anything. Medicare/Medicaid is going bankrupt. Social Security is going bankrupt. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are over run with corruption. Even that monstrosity of a "stimulus" bill that was passed back in January (or February, I forget, it has kind of all run together) is over run with mismanagement. Just ask Joe Biden. He actually said so. If they get this bill passed, they will have succeeded in taking away our choice in health insurance, choice of doctors, and even, our choices of care should we be unfortunate enough to be terminal.
The Administration that said they were going to be the most transparent in history, is anything but. Congress, in conjunction with the White House has promised that no bill will be voted on until 48 hours after it was introduced in its entirety to give every lawmaker a chance to read it. And then, it was supposed to be published for the public to read before it was voted on. They have definitely not lived up to that. They are rushing bills through at such an alarming rate that it is truly hard to keep up with everything they are doing.
Speaking of which, the White House has actually put out that they are taking information on people who dare to speak out against the Health Care Reform Bill. They say that there are people who are spreading lies about this bill. Well, after reading the bill, I can truly say that the only people who are spreading lies about it are the very people who want to shove it down our throats. So, if you read this, and you truly want to tell the White House that I am 100% totally against it, you can e-mail them at email@example.com. I guess, the actual terms they use is that if you get an e-mail or see something that is fishy, they want you to e-mail them.
So, to summarize, my take on this whole health care bill (that the king liberal has even admitted to not reading) is that it is nothing but another way for the Democrats to try and make us more dependent on government to take care of the very things that we should be taking care of ourselves. This will allow them to do what ever they want and tell us what we can and can not do. This is not Freedom. This is not what our forefathers intended when they founded this country. This is not what many, many men and women have died defending. They even want us to start telling them when people disagree with them. Even Hillary Clinton said, in 2003, that we have an right and obligation to question an administration when we don't agree with it.
In the immortal words of the Great President Ronald Reagan, "Freedom is never more than a generation away from being extinct." Now is our time to fight for what we believe in. Let your Representatives and Senators know what you think about this bill.
