We Did All We Could Do

The American people were against health care reform 55% to 35%. Considering this and that the Congress is made up of 255 Democrats and 178 Republicans, the fact is health care reform passed by the slimmest of votes (with every Republican voting no) against overwhelming numbers in the public opinion (you know, that thing that makes us a representative democracy). This sends a signal to the American people that our government no longer works properly.

We did all we could do despite being out-muscled by a Democrat machine that is more interested in its agenda than it is ours. But, just because we did all we could do now, doesn't mean there isn't more to do in November.

Obamacare is a major step in the direction of a European style democracy where the lines between capitalism and socialism are blurred and free enterprise is allowed to exist, but only at the whim of the government which can impose any control it wishes on it at any time. Stopping this will require that our voices be heard at the ballot box. Congress needs a total overhaul. The people must take back its most direct representational voice: the House of Representatives.

The total out of balance nature of our legislature in proportion to the public's opinion is a breeding ground for tyranny. This Congress has chosen to forget its Constitutional duty to represent the will of the people, and in the process is not putting a necessary check and balance on a president who is hell bent toward leading this country into incurable debt and an oppressive growth of government. First the media abdicated its role during the campaign part and now the Congress has abdicated its role during the governing part. We are now beginning to understand, as Sarah Palin said, what Obama meant by "redistribution of wealth" and "transforming America."

When the American people voted in this make-up of Congress, they obviously had not yet recognized that we were being led into socialism by the shadow party and the left wing of the Democrat party. Liberals infiltrated their party when we we weren't looking and now they own the board. Sarah Palin tried to warn us. Talk radio hosts tried to warn us. But it wasn't until the sheep were in the pen and being sheared that they started to bleat.

We're on it now. We're finding out that Sarah Palin was right all along. We're organizing. The TEA Party is getting stronger and stronger. The more the government refuses to listen to the people, the stronger the opposition becomes. It may be a dark day today. But victories in Virginia, New Jersey and Massachusetts tell us that we have hope for the ballot box in November.

The only way to solve this thwarting of the will of the people will be to infiltrate the Republican party and field candidates to take back our Congress and our country.  We fell asleep at the wheel once and let the media and the left wing choose our government. If any of ours ever falls asleep on watch again, it will be all of ours' responsibility to hold them accountable. This is our wake up call. This disaster in American democracy must never happen again.
