Today, with debt spiralling toward record levels, the U.S. House will vote on health care “reform.” A bill that forces the citizenry to accept socialized medicine. What is the great threat, the or else, from our government these days? Money, of course. It’s money the big machine needs to keep running, and it’s money they will take from you through fines or fees until your quality of life is a shell of it’s former state. Money to keep chooglin’ along, as John Fogerty once said. A fat freight train just a chooglin’ on down….to where, I wonder?
This legislation is the death of America as you know it. The death of what is left of our grand Republic. It is simply no good for the American people. How do I know this? Simple. Our leadership has clearly stated that this plan of socialized medicine does not apply to them. How’s that for audacity?
What is actually written into this bill? Who knows? Certainly not the current members of the House. How could they? It wasn’t open for debate. Speaker Pelosi, who I am convinced more than ever is either on drugs or needs to take some, has stated “We need to pass this bill so the people can see what’s in it.” I still can’t believe that, even as I type the words this sunny Sunday morning. Does she even listen to herself? What the fuck is going on here?
You will work hard and you will pay for the TRILLIONS given away in the bailout fiasco our current administration cooked up last year. You will work hard, and you will pay. You will not see the fruits of your labors. This, because there has been no disclosure to the proletariat regarding the dispersion of those funds. None. The great and colossal “they” sit back with a smirk as they hide the swag. You don’t deserve to know. We know what’s best for you. Shut up, take a Xanax and continue to pay. They are convinced the sheeple will sit idly by, as we have done for an entire century. Minds numbed by 46″ televisions, Hollywood and anesthetics legal and illegal both. We sit idly by as our rights, liberties and eventually our ability to pursue happiness is taken from us.
If these scoundrels manage to pass this bill, we will soon see the first and deadliest harbinger of our demise. The “National” identification card. With today’s technology, you can easily cram a phone book worth of information onto a credit card. Reams of data, including but not limited to your fingerprints, a retinal and facial scan, debt and credit information, political affiliations, criminal records, medical records, vehicle and property records, military service and God only knows what else.
This identification card will be the cornerstone of our grand New Republic. It will set the stage for dissolving our currency and merging it with Mexico and Canada. You’ll be buying bread using pink paper with a picture of Emile Zapata on it. Bring a big billfold, because I have a feeling you’re going to need a lot of Zapnotes.
Allow me to digress for a moment, back to pursuing happiness.
We hold these truths to be self–evident, That all men are created equal, That they are endowed by their Creator
with certain unalienable Rights, That among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men,
Deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.
Deriving their just powers FROM THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED. Jefferson’s words should ring out from the hilltops, from the church steeples, from the hearts and voices of every American, in opposition to this liberty-thieving legislation that is about to be forced upon us. Jefferson and his pals told King George right where he could stick it, and they did it due to a tax so paltry it amounts to 1/1000th of what the average American pays today.
The founders knew what you needed to pursue your happiness. You need money. That’s why, when the last gunshot sounded and they raised the stars and stripes in defiance, they absolved all of their debts to jolly ole’ England. We won, and now we ain’t paying you guys a goddamn dime. We need that money to pursue some happiness.
Well, the current leadership is thumbing their noses at us and taking our money. Just like King George.
