I love Star Trek. Whether it be the incomparably brilliant original series or any of the spin-offs, I have always been enchanted by the Gene Roddenberry’s vision of the future. To be sure, its all a bunch of socialist hooey. It’s a godless, collectivist nightmare of rebuilding the Tower of Babel and calling it the United Federation of Planets. It’s built around the pollyannaish pipe-dream of re-uniting all of mankind, with a few other species thrown in for good measure, and “organizing” everyone behind the Federation’s collectivist version of peace and harmony. However, I always found it remarkable that people accepted Roddenberry’s vision of the future without any real back-story of how all of humanity was aligned to the Federation’s universal order. Instead, all we get is a little story about a eugenics war, with millions killed, and some genetically improved super-humans, particularly one called Khan.
Yet it is the back story which enlightens us as to the foolishness of the entire concept. The Federation can only be created by force. Since Star Trek conveniently eliminates any possibility of a divine source of force we are left only with a man-made one. Good news! President Barack Obama likes Star Trek too. How do I know? Because you are witnessing his attempt at becoming that very same man-made force, and he is busy re-assembling that damnable Tower of Babel. Obama and his minions believe in equality in the distribution of everything and have anointed themselves with the authority to carry it out. The “redistribution of health care” that he and his democratic allies are proposing in the name of reform will be carried out whether we wish it or not. Or to put it in Star Trek speak: “resistance is futile.”
“I promise you, we will pass reform by the end of this year because the American people need it. We’re going to have to make it happen.” – President Obama
When in the history of our country has a President spoken as this one has? The President is watching support for both his Health Care Reform initiatives and his presidency evaporate. Instead of reassessing his positions and trying to align himself with the public that elected him, he has chosen to go to war against a majority of the American people. Is he sane? You betcha, and he is shamelessly arrogant. Barack Obama was elected to be President of the United States and yet he sends out an e-mail urging unions, and others that supported his election, to take to the streets and fight for his reforms by telling them that “this is the moment our movement was built for?” This would qualify as the most preposterous thing ever said by a sitting President were it not for a follow-up statement from the White House staff the very next day:
“If you get hit, we will punch back twice as hard.” -Jim Messina Deputy Chief of Staff
Resistance may be futile, but its pretty damn impressive. The public’s resistance to the Health Care bills being proposed has erupted at town hall meetings and every other gathering any members of congress attend. The media, ever vigilant as always (sarcasm alert) has belittled and berated the huge crowds that are attending these meetings and has concluded that they are mobs or even Nazis. Once again we have to remind the condescending socialists in the media that the Nazi’s were socialists. The main difference between the modern American Democratic Socialist and the Nazi’s lie in the fact that the Nazis (National Socialists) loved their country. We can’t say that about Obama and the Democrats.
The President appeared to have popular support to reform Health Care as long as he spoke in generalities. Who wouldn’t support full coverage for everyone at less cost? His problem was never in persuading the public that we need to help get coverage to the 18% (dubious statistic) of our citizens who aren’t currently insured, but what kind of fool intentionally jeaopardizes the 82% who are insured to accomplish it? That is a fatal flaw in the court of public opinion. The 12-15 million CITIZENS who are truly uninsured by poverty or circumstances beyond THEIR control could have insurance policies purchased for them for a sum of 30 billion dollars. The Democrats blew 30 times that on their self-serving bogus stimulus bill. This is not about insuring the uninsured. This is not about cutting costs. It is about control.
The public has turned against Health Care Reform for one reason and one reason alone: they are reading the bills! Though this may seem like a new cutting-edge political philosophy it is proving to be very enlightening, and enraging to the American citizenry. There is a saying that the devil is in the details…meet the devil:

Pg 427 Lines 15-24 Government mandates program for orders for end of life. The Government has a say in how your life ends.
Pg 429 Lines 10-12 “advanced care consultation” may include an ORDER for end of life plans. AN ORDER from the Government to end a life!
Pg 472 Lines 14-17 PAYMENT TO COMMUNITY-BASED ORGANIZATION. 1 monthly payment to a community-based organization. (Like ACORN?)
Pg 489 Sec 1308 The Government will cover Marriage & Family therapy. Which means they will insert Government into our marriages.

before you are on the “advanced care consultation” list.

As you can see, there is a lot to dislike in the 1000 page bill. The President is attempting to circumvent the United States Constitution. There is no legal authority for the government to do ANY of this. In fact, the government is constitutionally prohibited from involving itself in these affairs. If Health Care Reform is allowed to pass, he will have essentially fulfilled his promise to fundamentally transform America. Is this the change anyone had in mind? If not, then now is the time to act. I’ve said before that these socialists are a determined lot. They view politics much like an algebra equation. They have their desired result. They have wanted to usurp our constitution and get control away from the people of this country since the days of Woodrow Wilson. They have been scheming to find the variable that will produce that result. Universal, government administered health care is the scheme they have concluded will bring them their desired result. The best part is that they actually believe they are morally superior enough to make such judgements. This is either the science of social engineering or the science of arrogance. You decide.
“Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom, and then lost it, have never known it again.” – Ronald Reagan January 5, 1967
We may not have chosen this fight, and maybe we don’t even want it, but it is ours. The United States of America, as we have known it, hangs in the balance what we do, or fail to do, next. The Republicans in congress cannot stop this from being forced upon us. They do not have the votes. It is clear the public is against this so-called reform, yet the President and his allies insist they will pass it whether we like it or not. Make no mistake about it, this is an intellectual coup against our representative form of government. The President and his adolescent socialist allies haven’t got the courage to attempt the more violent variety of coups common throughout the rest of the world. A fellow could get hurt trying that, so he chooses scheming, deception and the manipulation of the parliamentary process (reconciliation anyone?) to achieve his goals. And this they call…social justice?
Social Justice is the process whereby moral cowards combine their collective weaknesses to take by force of numbers that which their ideas could not earn by merit. Unfortunately for us, “social justice” requires that the entire health care industry must be stolen from the private sector. However our President, the professional community organizer, has underestimated his electorate. The tactics of the disruptive protest so worshipped by the followers of Saul Alinsky, work only on an undefended target. And therein lies the problem with the President’s scheme. The American people are defending their Health Care system en masse. The Community Organizer in Chief is being out-organized by a public that is damning his plans at every point of opportunity. His solution to these complications has been to launch a taxpayer-funded initiative to recruit an Internet Snitch Brigade that will combat “disinformation about health insurance reform.” That’s right, the President of your country is asking you to report on your fellow citizens who oppose his agenda and provide him with their names and addresses…a genuine enemies list.
“These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to email@example.com.” – White House Online Bulletin
You can’t make this stuff up. Please feel free to send him a copy of this essay. Maybe he will lock me up in the same gulag as Ann Coulter, Monica Crowley or Mary Catherine Hamm…a fellow can dream can’t he?
Just one year ago, during the administration of ole’ GW Bush, we were told that dissent was the highest form of patriotism. Yet tonight I happened to notice that MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann was labeling dissenting American citizens as political terrorists! My how the times have changed. Let them drink a full cup of their own medicine. How does it taste Keith? The President and his cohorts are desperate and have reduced their rhetoric to the level of childish name calling by dismissing the protesters as being “organized” and even stooping to label them as racists. SEIU and ACORN thugs (on Presidential orders no less!) have resorted to violent attacks on protesters…
“The nation’s largest federation of labor organizations has promised to directly engage with boisterous conservative protesters at Democratic town halls during the August recess.”
As a result, the townhall meeting with Russ Carnahan last night had union thugs preventing ordinary citizens from entering the building where he was speaking – with only union members being let in via a side door. Consequently, area citizens were not only denied entry, but were beaten by these thugs – several taken to the hospital. – Huffington Post
…and yet they still come in huge numbers. The sleeping giant is awake and it doesn’t fear union or community organizer thuggery. In fact we are calling you out. Bring it on!
We can, and must defeat this illegal reform bill. In the event that our government dares to pass this monstrosity against our wishes the figurative tarring and feathering that has been occurring at these town hall meetings may have to yield to its literal counterpart. Let that be their choice. We cannot allow this to stand. Just because they pass this into law does not mean we have to recognize it as such. Consider the words of Cicero:
“If ignorant and unskillful men have prescribed deadly poisons instead of healing drugs,these cannot possibly be called physician’s prescriptions; neither in a nation can a statute of any sort be called a law, even though the nation, in spite of being a ruinous regulation, has accepted it.”
We must never accept this illegal usurpation of constitutional authority. Do not think the world will return to normal. You will not be able to vote the scoundrels out of office in the next election if this passes. They see the numbers. They know how mad we are. The President has got to guarantee his congress their jobs. If they deliver him this bill to sign, there will not be a next election. Count on it. If you let them get away with stealing control of the health care industry, you will let them get away with cancelling elections. Nothing they are doing, or will do in the future, is new. It’s all been done before.
ECCLESIASTES 9:1 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
Socialists cannot abide any opposition, and the concept of individual liberty is anathema to their worldview. We’re facing hardcore, old-school leftists that are well organized, highly disciplined, and ruthless. This will get much worse before it gets better. There is too much anger and rage, it can’t stay bloodless much longer with elected officials openly dismissing an ever increasing majority of the American people. Sometime soon, someone is going to lose it and bad things are going to happen.
George Will often says that history is not inevitable. Our country is worth fighting for, unfortunately the enemy we fight is exactly the one our founding fathers warned us about…our own government. The Constitution is the law, not Barack Obama or his socialist allies. This is the moment our President and his movement was built for…and this is the moment they must be stopped. Resistance is not futile, it is the order of the day.
