The House leadership is trying to figure a way to force Healthcare Reform down the throats of the American People. House Democrats may even 'deem' it passed because none of them want their name associated with voting for it. The next few days will be very interesting.
Why? Because the American People don't want government involved with their healthcare! This is a... "transformation moment" in American history. This is that moment that Obama was referring to when he said 'in just 5 days we start transforming America".
Government is out of control and it's time to reflect on some of my favorite "Founding Father's" quotes on government. (For those of you that are products of outcome based education you'll need to actually read a document call the Declaration of Independence, penned by Thomas Jefferson, and the United States Constitution as prerequisites to the these quotes)
Quotes from Thomas Jefferson:
I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.
To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.
The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.
Most bad government has grown out of too much government.
The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.
The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground.
Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty.
If Healthcare Reform is forced upon the American people then I predict the eventual financial collapse of our Country. I believe that is exactly what the Progressives want. Collapse will lead to anarchy... which leads to revolution... and timid Americans will then choose to sacrifice liberty for order.
