“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C.) Roman Statesman, Philosopher and Orator, in 58 BC, during a Speech in the Roman Senate
Your efforts are having some effect on those in the capital and on others in their home states. Keep up your fight through letters, e-mails, faxes, phone calls, town halls and tea bag protests. The cracks are starting to show in the skin of this perverse group that was elected, not just in 2008, but those reprobates that have been there for so long.
There are a few showing themselves as patriots. We should always remember to thank them when they do right for our nation and constitution. Even a few Democrat’s are showing spine and morality. Let them know we appreciate them for it.
Seven Republican state attorneys general are working together to levy a constitutional challenge against the Senate health care bill.
Sens. Jim DeMint and Lindsey Graham, both South Carolina Republicans, started the effort by requesting their state’s attorney general, review a provision in the bill exempting the state of Nebraska from paying its share of Medicaid expansion costs.
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott said, “The Nebraska Compromise, which permanently exempts Nebraska from paying Medicaid costs that Texas and all other states must pay, may violate the U.S. Constitution as well as other provisions of federal law.” He is working with attorneys general in nine other states and will be holding meetings next week. He went on to say that if what he calls “the Nebraska Compromise” is permitted to stand “then there are really no limitations on actions that Congress can take where literally they’re taking taxpayer dollars from one state and giving it to another.”
The Heritage Foundation published a study about the matter earlier this month that summarized the problems with the bill, “A mandate requiring all individuals to purchase health insurance would be an unprecedented form of federal action. The government has never required people to buy any good or service as a condition of lawful residence in the United States. An individual mandate would have two features that, in combination, would make it unique. First, it would impose a duty on individuals as members of society. Second, it would require people to purchase a specific service that would be heavily regulated by the federal government.”
While all of this gives us hope, it is imperative that we continue in the fight against this Maoist takeover of our nation. The Republicans are showing back bone right now, let’s keep the press upon them by continuing to contact them and letting them know this, that the “Moderate Years,” the “Get Along Years,” the “My Friends Across The Aisle Years,” the “Squish-Power Sharing Republican Years,” for the Republican Party are over. It is time for all good republicans to return to the fold. Conservative, Constitution Loving are the only future for the Republican Party. This inane idea of a “Big Tent” party, which is promulgated by the Democrat’s as the direction for the GOP, is for the Democrats, not Republican’s. The GOP is for CONSERVATIVES.
It is time for all Democrat’s to go. There is no such thing as a moderate or Blue Dog Democrat. There are just Democrats. Some are socialists and some are Maoists, but NONE, are conservatives. Send them all home.
Now before I just pick on the Demagogues, lets not forget our lovely friends, Republican’s Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins, Lindsey Graham, and yes, John McCain. I will almost take bets that they will make their peace with the Democrats Magnum Opus once it is reconciled in conference committee and will vote for its final passage. The argument will go that with government-run health care a done deal, Republicans have a duty to be, “constructive, to dedicate themselves to making the legislation better through amendments and whatever improvements they can get in the measure.”
Hog Wash and we know it. If YOU hadn’t been standing on the line in the sand, they would have already voted for it. Let them know we aren’t, “going quietly into that good night,” we are here to stay. They better get in line or out of it. Now, not later. We want them to stop everything that the left is pushing and EVERYTHING that the administration wants. Everything!!!!
From this point forward, all republicans, leaders Mitch McConnell, John Boehner and Michael Steele need to pound the heads of any members of their party who waver in this fight to repeal the Maoist coup d’état attempt. Anything less than a total stand by the Republican Party is Treason in the highest form.
In 44 BC, Julius Caesar was murdered by a group of senators. (Ha! And we thought this was the first time) they were led by Marcus Brutus, who had been a close friend of Caesar. Although these words come to us via Shakespeare’s play Julius Caesar, they are apt for today:
Caesar: Et tu, Brute? Then fall, Caesar! (Caesar dies.)
Those in the play saw it as a start of liberty and freedom thinking tyranny was now dead. We know better now don’t we?
