"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic." - Benjamin Franklin;
"And when politicians find that honor and character matter less than buying votes and a constituency, that too will herald the end of the Constitution. When that happens we must work tirelessly to change their minds, or their occupation!" - Hoping The Blind Will See

For Those Of You Who Still Believe, I Only Ask Why?

Let's see...

First we were told a stimulus package had to be passed immediately to prevent a full blown depression and to ensure that the unemployment rate would not rise above 8%. We are currently at 10.2% and climbing, using the current skewed formula. The real rate is closer to 18% and that number does NOT include retired persons. In reality, about one in four Americans of working age are not employed. Happy with that change?

Then we were told that we needed Cap & Trade legislation (that's energy legislation which the House has already passed) and of which Obama said "energy rates would necessarily skyrockety under my plan". Happy with that change?

Then we were told "the American people say they want health care reform". I know I wasn't questioned, were you? Between the march on Wsashington on September 12th, the thousands of tea party events across the country, and the town halls held in August, millions of Americans have voiced their opinion against the healthcare reform legislation currently being bandied about on Capitol Hill. And yet, the House passed a health care reform bill, and the Senate is about to do the same  - maybe completing that process in the next 4-5 weeks. I assume you are informed enough to undersatnd that all of us working people will be footing that bill. Happy with that change?

So I ask you, why do you believe that this administration, or ANY administration in our government at any time in the future, could properly run and control the Health Care system which is 1/6th of our economy? Why would we want a government that controls nearly 50% of our economy overall? Why do you want government controlling that much of your life? Do you really lack that much confidence and self-esteem in you ability to run your own life? If so, that's a pity! I need to understand your perspective, so I beg you to leave a comment to let me know...

Wake Up America!
