On the one hand, it’s delicious fun – in that train wreck kind of way – to watch leftwing heads spinning like nuts being tightened by a master mechanic in an overweight, Burkenstocked version of “The Exorcist” as average Americans catch on to the monstrous devastation being heaped upon our beloved country, but on the other, I’ve had more than my fill of suits and lemmings drunk on Kool-Aid endlessly bleating their psychobabble about why I’m angry and speaking out against the policies of this administration.
Frankly, my dears, I am just your average American citizen. I go to work, I pay my bills (including my taxes – hint, hint, Obamabuds), I care for my family and my friends, and I care deeply about the freedoms we have in this country. I care so deeply about those freedoms that I take the time to read the pork-laced swill spewed hastily by Congress and labelled as legislation. I take the time to listen to the words coming out of lips both painted and unpainted and I pay attention to the actions that follow. Actions that, inevitably, do something different.
I have never been one to tolerate fools easily and now the attacks being perpetuated on me, a plain, old, hard-working American citizen, through the continuing onslaught against my Constitutional freedoms, have set my teeth on edge and prodded me to the point that I get up out of my chair and march on the street. As an American citizen it is my right to do this. And there I find thousands of others who are thinking exactly the same thing.
This government is out of control. And we, the people, want that control back.
Because I dare to choose to exercise my Constitutional right to assemble or my Constitutional right to voice my opinion, I am labelled any of the following:
- Right-wing extremist
- Mob member
What is frightening is that these labels are not placed on me (or on any of the other millions of Americans who now find themselves unexpected participants in our process of government) only by those with whom I disagree. These labels are placed by our Community Organizer in Chief, that Great Divider of the United States, President Obama, and by members of his administration. Most recently, campaigning at a rally for Virginia’s Democratic gubernatorial candidate Creigh Deeds, President Obama said:
“I expect to be held responsible for these issues because I’m the president. But I don’t want the folks who created the mess doing a lot of talking. I want them to just get out of the way so we can clean up the mess.”
Yo, Barry. You ARE being held responsible. But the only “mess” here is the one created by you peeing on my leg and then having the audacity to tell me it’s raining. You are responsible for creating the most enormous deficit this country has ever seen, and doing it in only six short month’s time. And we, the American people who hold down real jobs in the real world, something about which you haven’t a clue, we aren’t buying your excuses and your “oopses” any more and we certainly aren’t buying your exortions to “spend more to save money”. The truth is that the current economic “recovery” you’re so quick to claim would have happened had you done absolutely NOTHING. We see through your rhetoric and we aren’t buying what you have for sale, especially not your takeover of American medicine. And we are not going to get out of your way.
Encouraged by the President’s childish attention to matters that ought not concern him, such as his “friend” Professor Gate’s recent idiotic behavior, his administration gleefully casts stones as well and is now doing everything they can to marginalize and demonize the American people. Attempting to divide their precious left from right, blacks and Hispanics from white, they are calling on their unions and the Obama campaign astroturf (including government-funded – read: our hard-earned tax-dollar-funded – ACORN) to bully people like me and you who take the time to attend a townhall. They are paying people – with our hard-earned tax dollars – to collect information from snitches about people who disagree with the facts set down in black and white in their draft health care reform legislation and are using the Secret Service to contact those people as a way to intimidate and silence them.
Listen. Do you hear that sound? It’s those stones hitting the walls of their glass houses, and it’s growing louder every day. For the truth is that any argument is lost once one side begins calling the other names.
Mobs may shout.
But anger votes.
