I've Had Enough!

Postby nancyvideo » December 28th, 2009, 7:25 am

I have been a law-abiding citizen all my life. I've always played by the rules. That is about to change. The early morning passage of the Senate health care bill on Christmas eve requires every American to purchase health insurance. I refuse. I will not abide by this bill if it is passed into law. And if the government levies a fine, I will not pay it. I've had enough.

There comes a time when a line in the sand must be drawn. I've just drawn mine. I've listened to the outright lies our politicians have spouted in order to pass this legislation, which, by the way, has nothing to do with health care and everything to do with government control.

Democrats declared this bill was deficit neutral. Not so, says the Congressional Budget Office. Alas, this wasn't reported until minutes after the bill passed the Senate.

Dems say this bill will allow an additional 30 million people to be covered while not affecting prices. Helloo....this goes contrary to the very basic law of supply and demand.

The back room deals, the outright bribes, the lies, the rush, and the absolute arrogance of our elected officials who patronizingly tell me with a straight face that black is white and if I questions their wisdom, why I must be a loony tea-bagger who doesn't believe in the rule of gravity. Enough!!

I know the rule of law is essential to the health of a society and this sometimes requires a small loss of individual freedom for the greater good. We have a system of government now, however, that is imposing two different sets of rules. One set for Americans who pay the freight, and another system for government and union officials, politicians and rent seekers. Enough!

Since our much vaunted 'free press' hasn't deigned to inform Americans about the basics involved in this health care bill, I'll touch on a couple goodies you might not be aware of:

First, the bill declares that certain sections of it can't be repealed by future Congresses. Meaning we the people will no longer be able to vote or amend it. This is a fiat.

Secondly, this bill will impose a mandatory, Mandatory, fee of app. $15,000 on many families. That's a cool 15K you'll have to take out of your budget if you're not covered by employer health insurance. And its just too bad if you don't have a job.

I could go on... suffice to say, this American knows there is absolutely nothing in the Constitution that allows the federal government to force me to purchase something I don't want, need or agree with. Call me uncompassionate, but as a matter of principle, I refuse to pay for some-else's abortion, botox treatment or transgender surgery. And I refuse to let the government impose an unconstitutional mandate on me.

I refuse on the grounds that I am an American who has the right to decide what is best for myself and my family. I will not be coerced by posturing, rent seeking politicos who are misusing the powers we the people granted them. Enough!

I'm tired of being patronized by moral hucksters who pander to the lowest among us as they use my money to buy votes from deadbeats. I'm tired of being lied to. I'm tired of having my voice ignored. I'm tired of having my money used to support causes with which I disagree. I've had enough.

This is my line in the sand. I vow I will not allow one cent of my hard earned money to be used to further this socialist redistribution scheme. I refuse to participate. I will not be forced to pay for anything to do with this fraudulent bill. And I refuse to pay any fines that might be imposed. And taking a cue from the Democrats, I officially declare this debate over.

The bill could state anything but that doesn't make it so.

Yeah, what the heck is up with that? We're not the Medes and the Persians, making laws that cannot be repealed. If we were we surely would take more time before passing a law.

P.S. Here's something on the "non-repealable" part:

And your all gonna send them [Pink-slips]?

:lol:

How has that worked out so far?

Personally I think that is lame, and useless.

Please, let me know when you plan to send something alittle more forceful. Id start out with the Law.

The Repubs who have started out talking about the Constitution have only bit*hed about a bribe. When in fact the whole bill is unConstitutional, and every bill the Repubs have passed is ALSO unConstitutional.

Interstate Commerce is the ONLY thing either Party can tackle with the Constitution. Sure, go for the bribery careful it can and will be used against them too.

The States and only the States can tackle Tort Reform untill the above is fixed.

Please, lets put Law where it belongs. :think:

Messageboards, blogs, websites, sites like RenewAmerica especially, these are the grassroots efforts that DO bring about change. The first thing you want to do in order to take down a country is attack communication. Obama was making noise about attempting to do just that, restricting conservative staitons and threatening the internet. He must have calmed down because it seems to have quieted down?

But don't just dis the efforts of the grassroots, Obama's attempts to shut us up just shows communication such as this DOES have an impact. It's necessary. We need more protests.
