March 21, 2010, The Day Our Republic Died

It occurred at 10:45 PM Eastern Daylight Time in the Capitol Building on the floor of the United States House of Representatives. With a vote of 219 – 212 Health Care passed with thunderous socialist applause and cheers and with it the death of our Republic and the end of true freedom in this land that we love.

I admit freely that as I watched the vote which brought an end to the liberty that millions have fought to defend I cried knowing that barring a political miracle which would bring about a strong enough opposition majority to over turn a Presidential VETO in legislation to repeal this nightmare, future generations will never know what it was like to live in a free country where government was not in control of our lives.

I live in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and throughout the day it rained. A weather forecast that was not predicted, in fact the chance of rain was only minimal. Then I realized that this was not rain but rather tears of sadness and grief as our Founders and great men like Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan looked down from on high and watched our Republic die and their tears brought rain to our land.

This does not signal that our fight is lost nor that we have given up, but rather that we now must renew our determination to restore liberty and freedom and end the Socialism that was forced upon us this day by the Marxists and their dear leader Barack Obama. There will always be those like Obama, Pelosi and Reid in our midst who hate Americans and hate freedom. But we who cherish what they have stolen tonight will fight until we regain what they have taken.

Ronald Reagan said it best when he said this, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” Our fight will resurrect our Republic from the hands of the anti -American hoard that through their vote shredded our Constitution this night. The war is not over and freedom and the American people will prevail.
