Obama Care

The new poll has been posted and once again John Faulk has been included in the list. (Yea!)

I don’t think I need to tell any of my readers of my complete disdain for the Congresswomaaaaan Queen Sheila Jackson Lee, so get to clicking and tell your friends about Ten Buck Fridays!

Right Klik has the list of candidates posted over at his place so head on over there and get to know some good conservative patriots.

And speaking of voting, The registration deadline in Texas is one month before the election in November, that’s October 2, 2010. If you know a conservative who hasn’t registered to vote, encourage them to do so!

You say that chart only portrays about one-third of the ObamaCare monstrosity?

That’s not an elephant in the living room, it’s the whole effing  herd!

Thanks Walking Horse, for another enlightening assessment.

Happy Sunday patriots! The latest poll is up and running on the sidebar.

Another outstanding list of nominees for this weeks TBF poll. I’ve nominated John Faulk from Texas’ 18th District, who is running against the disgrace that is Congresswomaaaaan Sheila Jackson Lee.

If you reside in Texas I would urge you to at least consider placing your vote for John Faulk. I normally don’t press readers to vote one way or another in these polls, but in my opinionated opinion the Congresswomaaaaan needs to go and Mr. Faulk will be an excellent choice. I will say that no matter who wins the poll this week, along with my TBF donation, I’ll personally be making an extra donation to Mr. Faulk’s campaign.

John Faulk on the issues here.

As is normally the case, Right Klik has the complete roundup of information on all of the very worthy nominees.

He also adds some reminders:

Matt, of Conservative Hideout fame has got to be the hardest working man in the blogosphere, next to R.S. McCain and Smitty of course. Over the last year and a half of the failed Obama administration’s regime he’s put together a definitive description of the trappings of Obamacare, and if you’re not aware, it isn’t pretty. I use the word “trappings” with purpose, because that is exactly what the monstrosity is, a trap sprung on a beguiled public who stood there with their hands out waiting for the benevolent dictator to “give them something, anything.” Well, what we all got is just another form of slavery. How ironic then, for the most racially driven president in our history, who likened himself to Lincoln on so many occasions to actually reverse the trend away from freedom and in effect enslave the entire population with so much debt and bureaucracy, much of which we are still waiting to be enacted.

I for one am working and praying for repeal of Obamacare, which is nothing more than a blasphemy of our Democratic Republican values.

These links will also be included in the resources on the Prime page along with the worthy links from other fine blogs and references.

Please take the time to thank Matt for his excellent work.

Over the past eleven months, a recurring theme of mine has been to ruminate on the perils of big government and what we can do to combat the over reaching arm of federal encroachments on our liberty and freedom. Since some of you are new to the blog, and since I transferred quite a few of those essays from the old site yesterday, I thought I would take the opportunity to point you to the “Prime” tab which will hold links to those essays for your reference.

As an introduction, in reverse order of appearance, here are ten essays on

The Perils of Big Government


Note also that within the “Prime” tab are what I consider to be some of the best writing by other bloggers I’ve run across in my travels. I don’t always have time or think of bookmarking a post so the list is a bit short for now. Most of my time online lately is focused on defeating the Godzilla of a government we’ve been growing, so if your wondrous work is absent, please take no offense at the omission, it may be that I simply haven’t read that particular work or wasn’t in a situation where I was able to make a note. Either way, the fault I’m sure, lies with me.

In addition to the random readings titled “From Other Blogs,” my friends at The Resistance have been very busy assembling valuable information for us to use and peruse. Those links will be posted on “Prime” also as they come available. I will try to make a note of when I make an addition to the “Prime” tab here on the front page but do check out that page from time to time as I may have forgotten to make note. They don’t call me “Mind-Numbed” for nothing.

Van Irion wins TBF poll!

Woo Hoo! My nominee won!

Not to gloat or anything. The other candidates are all very deserving, I’m sure. It’s just that, as Ruby Slippers says:

Anyone willing to clean the manure out of the Capitol and bring a lawsuit against ObamaCare has my support.

Right-on Ruby, Right-on!

As usual, RightKlik has an excellent article explaining Mr. Irion’s political positions and a great video of Van on Glenn Beck.

You know, now that I look, I see that I have yet to add RightKlik to my blogroll. How in the world could I let that slip by? Sorry about that omission RK, I’ll fix that error shortly. It will make a future installment of my Robo-Love Experiment in linking a bit more difficult fun and interesting, but I’m not one to back away from a challenge. Now let’s see, how to work “RightKlik” into a story line… Hmmmm.

Check you guys later. I’m off to make a donation and do a little blogrolling.

Cheers!

Hold your nose. This is not the aroma you were looking for.

Doug Ross reports on the dire consequences of the 2008 election and the policies of Obama and the Democrat/Socialists.

Instapundit points us to a video explaining why we need to repeal Obamacare:

Next, Ed Morrisey of HotAir reports on one of our Texas 11 showing how little he actually knows about the BS he shoveled down our throats and shows his backside in the process. Ciro Rodriguez blew a gasket when it was pointed out just how wrong the numbers were he was using to defend his vote for Obamacare.

An exerpt:

…For a year, Democrats have offered one false set of numbers after another on ObamaCare, as exemplified yet again last week by the IRS admission that they don?t have the resources to enforce the insurance mandate ? and Democrats? admission that they don?t know what the IRS needs to do it.  Certainly Rodriguez would have known that constituents would challenge his numbers when meeting with them, especially if he planned on rationalizing his support on CBO projections for health-care spending without ObamaCare…

Here is the video:

Ciro Rodriguez is running against Francisco R. ‘Quico’ Canseco.

The other 11 Texas incumbents who voted for Obamacare along with links to their opponents websites can be found on the Texas 11 tab on this blog.

Worth watching again, and again.


Neither have I, but I like the way he thinks. He “gets it,” unlike most of his generation, in my experience. In his latest post, he outlines the subtle progressive infiltration of the AARP that we all know happened long ago but felt the subject was off limits to discuss for fear that Mom and Dad would disown us for wanting to cut their umbilical cords to Medicare. Sadly that was the tactic used to enslave them and us, and now we are seeing the progress and results of that particular blunder.

Trestin has written a fine piece, from a young man’s perspective, on the whole AARP, Social Security, Medicare travesty.

It can be found here.

Well done Trestin. Well done indeed.

There is still hope to be found in the youth of our country. Let’s endeavor to encourage right minded thought and action in them, for in the youth of our nation, lies our future.

We were speaking of lawsuits against ObamaCare, weren’t we?

Well, I was.

Right about the time I had a good drunken rant going I get news of  Van Irion, a Constitutionalist from Tennessee who has actually begun work on a Class Action Lawsuit against ObamaCare.

From the FAQ:

Q. What is the goal of the lawsuit?

A. The goal is to reverse the incorrect interpretation by the Supreme Court of the Commerce clause that allows Congress to regulate essentially every American enterprise. This will restore the 10th Amendment and restrain Congress. Without reversing this precedent, Congress will continue to believe they have the right to regulate our daily lives and will continue to produce onerous bills that do so.

I’ve signed on and do encourage every person of sanity to do the same. I might even encourage some of you insane types to sign up also. Obama’s version of your “treatment” might not be what you wish it to be.

Van Irion is running for the Republican Primary in Tennessee’s 3rd District. The vote is scheduled for August 5th.

I like what I just saw so I’m sharing it with you. Wish I was in Tennessee to vote for him. If you know someone who should see this, please pass it on.

This post began as a response in the comment section that soon took the form of a rant and hopefully now has been transformed into another, different rant. One that makes more sense and is less ummm, rant-like. I don’t know. You be the judge.

RightKlik, I know you had no intention of stirring me up with this comment on the latest post of the TBF poll but you’ve spurred my residual indignation over the passage of ObamaCare and given me an opportunity to compare it to it’s prostitute mother, *gasp* Social Security.

Here is RK’s comment:

For me, the candidates’ views on ObamaCare has served as a convenient way to identify the sharpest, most conservative candidates. Candidates who have a well thought-out strong statement on ObamaCare invariably seem to be great, well-rounded candidates.

RK, ObamaCare is a hot-button issue with me also. Like you, I try to judge candidates by their views on, and knowledge of the constitution. It’s going to take a well defined legal strategy to not only repeal Obamacare, but to also plan the chess game of how to win the greater war of reversing the trend to this selfish entitlement mentality Americans are growing more entranced by. (What is it with shiny objects?) ObamaCare is a direct product of such a mindset and we must not only defeat it in the congress, we’ve also got to turn public opinion and thinking away from the dependency attitude. People should feel like they are trusted with making their own destiny, not feel like they can’t do anything without a government handout.

True empowerment and a sense of personal pride come from self reliance, not waiting on government to guarantee a safety net or grant you permission.

Conservatives by definition resist change. They are reluctant to embrace political change because mostly in the last hundred years, progressives have infected political and economic thought on both sides of the aisle. Most times a piece of new legislation is proposed, whether it starts out with good intentions or not, it gets a ton of amendments and stipulations attached to it so that the original helpful piece of law is completely transformed into sometimes the exact opposite of the bill than they started with. Most times, in situations like we are in now, a Democrat majority, and even when the Republicans have the majority, there are too many RINO’s to stop the creep of socialism. The best true Conservatives can hope for has been to dig in their heels and slow the progress toward the cliff of socialism.

As a recent example, House Republican Leader John Boehner has been catching some flak lately over comments he made concerning the mother of all entitlements, Social Security, flak that upon closer review, doesn’t hold up to scrutiny.

Why, you ask?

Because given government’s penchant for redistributing your hard earned money, Boehner is right!

Boehner is right when he says the only option for Social Security to remain solvent, is to raise the retirement age to seventy, that is, if you want to save it without raising taxes even more. Given the Obama regime’s attack on working class Americans as demonstrated by their blatant hostility toward free enterprise and capitalism in general,  their lack of enforcement of immigration law, and outright denial of the federal laws’ existence in attacking Arizona’s attempt to seal it’s border, the only way to balance the books at the SS office is to raise taxes, decrease benefits or grant amnesty to 20 million illegal immigrants. Try to decrease benefits to the losers who haven’t put into the system and you’re labeled a racist, baby hating, xenophobe, so the only option the Obama regime offers is amnesty or higher taxes. Boehner correctly points this out when he recognizes the absurdity of increasing the retirement age of Americans who have paid into this failed Progressive Democrat plan that has had 85 years to get it right.

What makes anyone think they can do better with total control of health care?

How they keep selling this garbage to a government educated, academically challenged electorate is simple class envy and racism. Obama’s White House plays the class envy card so much that I’m forced to think it is the only ones in his hand or up his sleeve. Yet most in the media sadly and predictably, give him a free pass. Obama and the Democrats alike need to legalize the illegals en-masse because they see it as 1) an immediate 20m Democrats, and 2) using the new revenue stream as a way to prop up SS and the associated entitlements like medicare, welfare, etc. Never mind the fact the programs as they stand are flawed, broke and in dire need of reforming and reshaping for eventual transfer to the private sector.

Boehner is right because it is important to focus on why Social Security is insolvent. Social Security was and is the perfect ponsi scheme foisted upon the unsuspecting American people. A Three Card Monty with the “security card” taken off the table soon after the first shuffle. I see now that it was replaced with the “race card.”

Social Security is the prime example of the drawbacks of a true Democracy and the pandering it promotes. It resulted in a government run slush fund used to steal from every productive worker to give to the chosen. SS was proposed and passed by a progressive leaning congress, freshly educated/indoctrinated in Keynesian make-believe monetary schemes, deciding after passage, but knowing pre… that it, and the entitlement thinking it would spawn would become the greatest threat to liberty known to man. A Totalitarian Democracy enforced by aristocrats hell bent on protecting you from yourself at everyone else perceived expense.

Cornucopia Utopia.

Cornutopia!

All one has to do is look across the pond to the European failure in their Socialist experiment gone wild. Greece and the EU stand as a tarnished, rusty example of the degradation of socialist/communist political practice, lack of ethical behavior, outright corruption and the exposing of the absolute greed and selfishness that a true democracy fosters.

This is what inhabits not only the buildings of our capitol, but what infects the minds of the people who would enslave you by pushing the Democratic/ Progressive Socialist agenda. Obamacare, Cap and Trade, The Global Warming lie,  TARP, Stimulus, and government takeovers of private industry are all examples of why the solution to problems caused by a large, centralized federal government is not more government.

We’ve got a long road ahead folks. Let’s dig in by electing leaders with a belief in the Constitutional Republic we were meant to inherit.

Democracies fail. Always have, always will. They eat themselves from the inside out.

A maggot has no thought of what it  eats. It only knows the innate hunger. The lust for power is no different.

UPDATE: My friend Bob Belvedere has posted commentary to a post by Si Vis Pacem, and surprisingly, or not, they have been discussing some of the same points I brought up here. That being, we deplore the term Democracy as applied to the USA. I highly recommend both reads.

And remember, The U.S.A. is a Constitutional Republic. Thank you.

In reference to the earlier post which called out the 11 Texans who voted for ObamaCare. Just in case you didn’t notice the new tab, I’m pointing it out. There it is, top right. See?

After a thorough and exhaustive search, the opponents of the TEXAS 11 have been located. I’ve dedicated a page on this site to reference the democrats and their opponents.  You’ll find it at the top  labeled TEXAS 11. Simple. Now go give their opponents some money!
