If Obamacare passes...
The outcome is certain
It seems touch-and-go. The White House, using a predictable basketball analogy, calls it a "jump ball." One day I hear Pelosi has the votes, the next day I hear she doesn't. Grass roots liberty organizations encourage us to call, write, fax or visit our congressional representative yet again to register once more our unalterable opposition.
Been, there, done that. They know. A Colorado grassroots organizer said
I was in Jared Polis [D-CO2]office yesterday and a few months ago took a group of Doctors , Nurses, Engineers, CEO and other professional and met with him. He has made it clear that he is voting for this health care bill and he also was pushing getting the Government Option back into the bill. I have had people sign letters and have delivered them to him, it still does not matter. Jared Polis will vote for this bill no matter what we do.
In reviewing this last week's polls, Rasmussen wrote:
Are national Democrats on a kamikaze mission to pass their health care reform plan and destroy themselves at the polls in November? That’s what it seems like...
So what will happen if Pelosi convinces them to pass the bill and the president and the senate do the "reconciliation" process? Will Americans rise up in revolt? Will they storm the barricades, fire-bomb congressional offices, march into the legislatures and literally throw the bums out? That would send a message that would stop the madness, wouldn't it? Wasn't King George burned in effigy more than once and the tea dumped into Boston Harbor? Does not the Declaration of Independence read:
That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it,...
Yes, that would get their attention. Those admirers of Mao in the administration and in congress who believe that power comes from the barrel of a gun would reap what they have sown.
But that will not happen. If they manage to pass this blatantly unconstitutional bill in the middle of the night, Americans will get up the next morning and go to work as usual--if they still have work--more determined than ever to effect a permanent change to the ills that surround us.
No, retribution will not be swift--but it will be certain.
