Thomas Jefferson

"We must make our choice between economy and liberty or confusion and servitude...If we run into such debts, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and comforts, in our labor and in our amusements...if we can prevent the government from wasting the labor of the people, under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy."--Thomas Jefferson

"America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. "
--John Quincy Adams
US diplomat & politician (1767 - 1848)

“Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation”
-James Madison at the Virginia Ratification Debates
"With respect to the words "general welfare," I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators."

- James Madison's Letter to James Robertson, April 20, 1831

"Public" Option Being Dropped? Yeah Right!

I received a comment on my last post that I felt was important to run as a new post:

So what do you think of the change - getting rid of the government option?

My Reply:
It's a crock and if you believe that, then I have a bridge in my backyard to sell you. Here's why:
1. It hasn't happened yet! It's called a "trial balloon" in the political world!
2. Liberal activists and the Liberal Congressional caucus--especially in the House have said this is unacceptable and they wield enough power to push it back in. They have been screaming about it since the weekend!
3. Secretary of Health and Human Services(and proud baby killer supporter) Kathleen Sebelius is the one who floated that idea over the weekend on the mainstream media outlets. The White House quickly recanted that idea and said all options are still on the table.
4. The latest spin is that we would have "co-ops" instead of a government option. This is just a play on words and will ultimately lead to the same thing! Co-ops are FEDERALLY RUN AND FUNDED! It IS a public "option"...
5. Even if by miracle this is dropped, it would just added back down the road when no one is paying attention or slipped into another non-related bill...

The whole reason this is happening at all is because Americans ae much more unified behind opposing this nonsense like never before. The more Obama talks about it, the less people like it and we will continue to tell the real story of thier spin and lies about what is truly in this bill.And finally, and again, this is not and has never been about healthcare---this is about usurping power they do not have in the Constitution and is the ultimate power and money grab for liberals and Statists (thanks Mark Levin!). It is the Holy Grail of liberalism and Marxists. Do not argue the dollars and cents on this! It is about stealing the ultimate freedoms and liberties we enjoy and turning them over to BO and the gang for a false sense of security and promises that can NEVER be kept.Aren't you glad you asked? Thanks for reading!
