A rant on the current climate of We The People.
Health care is an important issue right now and I am against any move to a socialized health system. The turnout for the meetings and town halls has been great and an impact is being made. But just so everyone knows, it is about much more than that. Politicians, TV news, and other mainstream media outlets are focusing on health care because it is happening now. What they do not get or see is that the excessive growth of government has been happening for quite some time now. With the initial bailout at the end of 2008, tarp and the stimulus, cap and trade, and now the health care bill, people are at the point where they are not going take it anymore. That is why there are record numbers of people speaking out, attending these town halls, and just getting involved and informed.
Both parties, the democrats and republicans, are to blame and we all know it. People are getting more informed and they are paying attention now. Be sure to know, politicians, none of your job's are safe. We are going to and will continue to keep a close watch on you. We want and need people in office that will fight for us. People that will take a stand and not back down. It isn't about compromise. It is about the Constitution of the United States. It is about downsizing and limiting the Federal government as prescribed by the Constitution. It is about standing up for what our Founding Fathers envisioned and gave all they had to create. It is about Freedom and Liberty. It is about getting government out of every aspect of our lives. This is the key to it all.
