Healthcare Reform: Where are the grownups in the republican party?

Here’s a post from a conservative news organ about healthcare reform.  There are any number of people who truly feel that this is communist inspired and are ready to actually revolt.  This is ridiculous and I wish I could just dismiss this as just that, but I can’t.  I’ve felt for quite some time that there are those people who are very willing to engage in seditious conduct just because they didn’t get their way.  Quite frankly, this sort of thing harkens all the way back to the 2008 election when many of these same folks made a run on gun shops to load up, not because of any particular policy because Obama hadn’t even taken office, but because they thought that he was going to curtail gun rights.  We’ve seen this idiocy in the birther movement.  This has continued with healthcare and will continue with anything the administration wants to do.

The political discourse in our nation has turned for the worst when some fool is ready to take up arms just because a healthcare bill passed.  I’m convinced that much of this opposition and obstructionism has absolutely nothing to do with healthcare or anything else for that matter other than the fact that the opposition lost.

We have folks like Limbaugh and Beck to thank for whipping up this sort of  frenzy.  Moreover, the grownups in the republican party have allowed themselves to be cowered into silence by these fools.  Where is George Bush Sr, Brent Scrowcroft, Colin Powell, Richard Lugar and others?  Why are they letting the tea partiers and the TV entertainers define the republican party?  Don’t they realize that allowing these types to define their party is a losing proposition for their party as well as the nation?  The issue is not whether they agree or disagree with healthcare reform.  The issue is how their party accepts defeat. They really must speak up and the post excerpted below is the main reason they need to speak:

While we ponder how to fight this takeover of our country by cummunisn with votes and within our framework of government, the enemy could care less what our Constitution means and intends.

We attempt to legally stop an illegal use of our laws and our government. We conservatives insist that some of us using bad language and writing nasty signs are actually a problem to our cause. Some of us are expressing hatred for the folks taking over our country and our fellow conservatives make them a target as if they are the enemy also.

On the other hand, there is the Tea Party movement. Nice idea to begin with but now being engineered to divide the conservatives. Constant badgering of conservatives for money to fight what they consider an enemy but doing so completely seperate from a concentrated effort with the opposing party.

The Tea Parties of all kinds are asking constantly for the same money the republicans need to fight this fight. The tea parties have no right to life intentions, they seem a little weak on all conservative causes other than influencing elections and some of those influences are going against republican members.

The original Boston tea party was an illegal act. Yet these tea party folks of modern persuasion want nice, friendly marches and get upset over a hateful sign here and there. I got news, some of us are becoming hateful and we have a darn good right to be that way.

The answers do not lie in nice peaceful persuasion of a group of communists who have no ears, eyes or any will to do anything but go straight ahead and run over the will of the people. Anyone ever see a communist takeover that was willing to discuss this with the opposing influences?

There are no “nice” ways of dealing with the enemy. This force must be destroyed and without PC discussions. Signs in parades and demonstrations themselves, using sweet language or even otherwise, are no answer at all. Our Constitution is being destroyed and we must call on those who have pledged to protect it.

Therefore, lets call on all those folks who have taken an oath to protect and defend our Constitution. lets call on them to do so. It is their duty to do so and the time is now. It is required of them and we should be meeting now to form plans to act.

If you need something, I am willing to volunteer, but if you ask for money, I will consider you the enemy. It’s not money we need, its action.

  1. Not Communist inspired? How do you know?

    Is it true that President Obama had a self-described “Communist Mentor” in hawaii, or that he was neighbor and friend of Marxist domestic terrorist Willaim Ayers? Or that his own Reverend, Jeremiah Wright, gives Leftist sermons which are anti-American?

    That is a lot of background to not be anywhere in the mind of Barack Obama, in my opinion.

    Most Americans do not want Socialized Healthcare, the polls show it. They do want “Healthcare reform” however. So where is the reform? Will costs go down for the average American? Not at all. Will they go up? Obviously. Will the size of this legislation grow over time? Look at Medicare, it exploded after implementation.

    We know what we see, and will not be fooled by words.

      I read somewhere the other day that most Americans have been dumbed down so much that most wouldn’t know what socialism is. The word has really been reduced down to an emotional buzzword. Funny how David Frum never mentioned socialism in his piece on how the republican party has fallen on its own sword with all the talk about socialism, communism and etc. The days of the red scare were back in the 50’s and 60’s and it would pay for many of you radicals to keep that in mind.

      Of course, you realize that a sizeable portion of the US budget is devoted to military spending. Two questions for you:

      1) Why is it that most of you guys never raise a question about that? Why do you presume that the same government that exhibits ineptitude at everything else is suddenly the paragon of efficiency when it comes to the use of military appropriations? Why is it not socialist for private companies to be at the government trough lapping up your tax dollars while wasting money?

      2) Related to (1) above. Due to our bloated military budgets, you are effectively paying for socialized healthcare for Canada and Europe because they reside under our military umbrella, hence they can forgo the spending. Why is it that you’re unconcerned with indirectly funding socialized healthcare in other countries while you pay an arm and a leg for coverage here or go without? If anything, that ought to be the thing you’re outraged about.

      I have my problems with reform myself, but let’s not pretend that this is some communist plot. You really can’t have an honest discussion about anything if you start off in that position.

    You and your are in for a rough ride and one you richly deserve.

    You’re damn right we’re hate-filled. We’re watching Obama and his filthy Liberals destroy both America’s culture of independence and its economy in a pernicious attempt to advance a federal government regulated and fully controlled economy.

    Forget the parties; the PEOPLE spoke and were ignored by the POTUS and Congress, and called racists for their dissent by the media and the Blacks.

    Starting today there will be payback. I just hope and pray that the vengeance we wreak harsh enough that it doesn’t have to be done a second time.

      I wonder how you feel about the fed debasing the currency and taxing you with inflation? Where were your pitchforks when Greenspan printed up dollars like it was okay and hence contributing mightily to the economic problems at hand?

      We’re in for a rough ride over not over someone stealing our wealth with a stealth tax, but over healthcare? Give me a break.

      The ink wasn’t dry on the election results before you guys were loading up on guns. That is crazy

    This country was built under the Rule of Law to prevent the tyranny that the colonies suffered under British Parliamentary sovereignty from happening again.
    The Rule of Law was formulated with the US Constitution as the highest law in the land with no body above the law. The US Constitution defined and limited the powers of the US Congress expressly to prevent Parliamentary sovereignty.
    Throughout history, the US Congress has been stretching the limits of the Interstate Commerce and General Welfare clauses, culminating with the passage of Health Care where the last Constitutional restraint on Congress’ power has been shaken off. Without Constitutional restraint, there is no law to limit the power of Congress, making this country subject to Parliamentary sovereignty – exactly what the founders attempted to prevent! We have become what we’ve rebelled against!
    John Locke in The Second Treatise of Civil Government states: “Where-ever law ends, tyranny begins”, and when the highest law, it is the highest tyranny.
    Whereas the US Supreme Court has abdicated it’s responsibility to defend the US Constitution, it falls on each State to defend their rights, and join together in restoring the US Constitution.

      And I suppose a threatened filibuster isn’t a parliamentary maneuver? Please let’s give it a break. This bill has its problems, but is a far cry from tyranny. Is someone rounding you guys up and forcing you into the damn doctor’s office? Is someone forcing you to take your vitamins? How is this tyranny and suppression of freedom?

      Give it a break.

    Hello , Happy April Fool’s Day!!!

    Three buddies die in a car crash, and they go to heaven to an orientation.
    They are all asked, “When you are in your casket and friends and family are mourning upon you, what would you like to hear them say about you?”
    The first guy says, “I would like to hear them say that I was a great doctor of my time, and a great family man.”
    The second guy says, “I would like to hear that I was a wonderful husband and school teacher which made a huge difference in our children of tomorrow.”
    The last guy replies, “I would like to hear them say, “Look! He’s moving!”

    Happy April Fool’s Day!
