He who controls the purse strings makes the rules. At least that’s how the Senate has handled their version of American health care “reform”. In the end, it was billions of dollars of taxpayer money handed out as early Christmas presents behind closed doors in the middle of a snowstorm in the middle of the night by Majority Leader Harry Reid that bought the crucial 60 votes the Demons…errr…the Democrats needed for the Senate to pass the bloody bastard.
‘Tis truly a sad, sad day for America. Those words can’t even begin to do justice to the wrenching ache deep in my gut as it is demonstrated yet again and with such blatant obviousness that this administration will do anything to turn what was once a beautiful beacon of light for the world into just another banana republic where freedom is but a dream and business is conducted through bribes in dark alleyways.
At this moment, I can naught but allow myself to be human and feel absolute loathing towards every Democrat in the Senate. While truly I wish no one harm, if I could have my way every single one of them would be run out of town on a rail and the only job they would ever again hold would be prefaced with “You want fries with that?” For such an entry level, real world job is barely all for which they have proven themselves qualified. They have shown once again that they don’t have a clue about how things work in the real world, the real world that is the source of the wealth they accumulate and toy with like so many cat turds in their little phantom sandbox in Washington.
This morning, they break their arms patting themselves on the back, proudly telling America it’s raining when they’re still just peeing on our leg. It is all beyond disgraceful, it is all beyond shameful. Reid said afterwards that “facts beat fears” but the reality this Christmas Eve is that bribes beat facts.
It has been noted that despite all the campaign promises, Obama’s legacy will be seen as that of the great divider. Senate Democrats have now struck a solid blow to really break this country in half, pitting honest, tax-paying, jobs-creating Americans against those standing in line for their Obama-promised handout. Rock The Vote’s latest stupidity that passses for advertising telling young people to withhold sex from those who are against the Democrat version of health care reform is but a prelude to the prejudice this farce of a Senate has just set in motion. At least as I write this piece Americans still have choices and I expect the more savvy will be voting with their dollars against businesses run by Democrats. I know that I will.
And therein lies America’s last hope. That this morning’s vote will be historic only by its fatal shattering of the Democratic party. That it will be a wake-up call to the GOP about the beliefs of the majority of Americans and our expectations of those we send to Washington to represent us; that it will allow true, constitutional conservatives a greater voice and thereby educate the immature in this society that it our Constitutional freedoms that have allowed them to stand here today with their hands out instead of shouldering their fair share. That our Constitutional freedoms are the only thing that will allow themselves to better their lot in life; for unlike the foundation of freedom given to us by the Founding Fathers, in a progressive, liberal Democratic regime, it is handouts, not opportunity, that are guaranteed to be rationed.
