I've heard a lot of Democrats say lately that they want an "up or down vote" on the health care bill; yet they keep delaying the vote.
Do you see what's happening? They are bullying and harrassing the members of their party who do not want to vote for this clearly unconstitutional bill. There is no where in the Constitution that talks about providing ANYTHING for EVERYONE; not ANYWHERE.
They think we are too stupid to know what's best, to know what the Constitution says. They have made it clear that "they" know best; just listen to Nancy Pelosi:
HUH? I'm not sure about her, but I KNOW I'm not that stupid. Period.
I feel the need to leave you with an excerpt from "The Crisis", a pamphlet by Thomas Paine. I know you've all heard this before, or at least the first line, but I feel it's quite fitting given the rise of tyranny in the last few years, but particularly in light of the legislative debacle taking place right now in Washington.
"THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated."
Please, don't be a summer soldier or a sunshine patriot; the storms are gathering and we, each one of us, must decide which side of the Constitution we will come down on; will it be the version the Founding Father's gave us, or the version that is shredded and nearly unrecognizable?
