A mere 281 people are turning our country into a left-wing socialist country, in spite of the fact that the vast majority of the American people have loudly objected and clearly expressed their opposition. These people are, of course, the 220 representatives and the 60 senators who have voted for Obamacare, plus the Socialist-In-Chief, himself. Their arrogance and contempt for the wishes of this country are almost beyond belief. It is clear that the best interests of America are of no account at all next to heir ambition and lust for power. We have the astonishing spectacle of public bribery: Mary Landrieu is offered $300,000,000 worth of OUR money to sell US out – and they don’t even bother to hide their corruption. And why should they? They believe we, the American people, are sheep who will ultimately accept anything they chose to dish out.
The Declaration of Independence states that government "derives its just powers from the consent of the governed". These 281 politicans have approved a law stating that:
1. We MUST buy something – in this case, health insurance
2. If not, we will be put in prison for five years and have our assets confiscated
How is this "just" power? The only fitting name for such a scandalous misuse is TYRANNY.
How is this group able to force their will on 300,000,000 Americans? It’s because they are using our own respect for tradition, for the institution of the American government, against us.
The fact is that we, the American people, are the ones who have the power, not these 281 people. Against our determination, their tyrannical laws mean nothing. But of course, it isn’t that simple.
* Our advantage: the power we have is unstoppable and a hurricane that no tyrannical government can withstand.
* Their advantage: they know how to effectively use their power – and we don’t.
No one seemed more secure in their privileges than the kings of France, yet the French people swept them away like a dandelion in the wind. I am certainly not advocating cutting off heads and murdering people. Yet for 250 years our ancestors have suffered and died to grasp and maintain our freedom. Are we going to passively give it away or are we worthy heirs of those who have come before us? The 281 expect us to be fat, mentally lazy and content as long as we have our American Idol fix. Are they right? If so, we are getting what we deserve. But I don’t believe that. I pray I’m right.
