“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent…will not. Genius…will not (and) education….will not…Press on" These are the words of the popular fiscal and small government conservative and 30th President, Calvin Coolidge. Heed them.
Rep. Bart (a.k.a Judas) Stupak (D-Mich.) caved in. The health care bill passed two days after $726,409 in federal funding for three airports in his district was announced and the same day he was promised 30 pieces of fake silver masquerading as a presidential executive order regarding abortion funding. Fool. Executive orders are capricious and impotent against senate bill language.
Now we are witnessing the first tectonic heave of a great nation sliding towards the slimy seas of socialism. As a despicable testimonial to the arrogance and hubris of ideologues acting in stark ignorance of the will of a highly informed nation, power and privilege has injured our homeland with the illicit hammer of the “ends justifying the means.” The president’s elitist behavior reveals his view that the huddled masses are either weak minded, wicked or perhaps both.
This is not over however. “Administrivial” obstruction will be gamely offered by noble minority party dissenters. Court challenges by various state legislatures are already forming. Painstaking scrutiny of every regulation required and penny appropriated for every obscene legal obligation and dirty deal which birthed them will follow.
The reckoning is coming in many forms. Doctor reimbursement rates were scheduled to drop on March 1, but Congress previously postponed them until the fall. Of course Congress will try to hide that elephant sized peanut but without those and other cuts, the savings promised will not progress as taxes and penalties are levied for years before expanded coverage ensues.
Perhaps it is just desserts from years of entitlement, greed and decades of the arrogance of office and the anesthetizing soul sucking seduction of easy money and lowered standards. Even so, beware the power, force and fury of American outrageous indignation.
This pyrrhic success must not be a roadmap for further historic change by an administration, which through entitlement enfeeblement, stuporously facilitates more transformative legislation, barring the road home for our threatened constitutional republic.
Folks know how this came to pass, but much more so they know there will not be savings, taxes will rise, quality of care will diminish, access will be limited and physicians and hospitals will revolt. They know straw boogiemen of the health care industry have been set up to collapse as the tent flap was lifted for further usurpation of personal freedom and greater government control of daily life. This tyranny will not prevail as notions of national governance contrary to the nature of man cannot long endure.
We must maintain the rage that we have been lied to, ignored and told that it matters naught, as being such meager toadies, we could not possibly understand this transformative grandeur.
We know better. We know that the right issue was health care costs, not health care. We know that it could have been worked out calmly, carefully, transparently and critically thinking together, under the protection and promise of the constitution.
We know America was predicated on regular citizens serving in government for a season, not a lifetime. We know laws are a sacred canopy covering all, not a cloaking device for the privileged.
Never surrender, never forget. Remember the admonition of Calvin Coolidge.
Press on. Press on internet links to countless campaigns to fight this corruption, reverse this bill and reclaim America. Press on touch tone telephones, relentlessly haranguing those who failed us and supporting those who serve. Press on stamps to letters written and in November, proudly press your mark on your ballot in support of liberty.
Press on the womb of American values inducing a rebirth of who we are and teach this well and forever to our children.
