They don't care!

It has finally dawned on me why President Obama and the Democrats in control of the Congress rushed to pass an unread "stimulus" bill "redistributing" billions of taxpayer dollars, have been voting bills out of committee to "reform" our national healthcare system, and another to impose a huge tax on all energy use.

They don't care.

They don't care that the polls clearly demonstrate that the majority of Americans oppose these and other initiatives.

They don't care that the time-tested and time-proven way out of a recession is to cut taxes.

They don't care that a similar healthcare program in Massachusetts did not reduce costs, that funding was slashed, and that rationing began.

They don't care that there is absolutely no need for a bill to regulate carbon dioxide in order to "stop global warming" and that it is a huge tax increase on all Americans at a time when the Earth has been cooling for the last ten years.

They don't care.

These are people like David Axelrod, the President's advisor, who dismissed the hundreds of thousands of people who came to Washington, D.C. on September 12th to protest, saying, "They're wrong."

It is obvious that President Obama doesn't care.

There is a complete disconnect between what he says and what he does. One could prepare a very long list of promises and statements made during his campaign and since his inauguration that reveal an astounding and frightening level of daily mendacity.

As for Congress, the rush to pass legislation such as healthcare reform that had been examined during the Clinton years — and rejected — is the single greatest indicator of how bad the outcome of this "new" effort will be. This is a bill being put together out of sight of the public because, if they knew its provisions, they would lay siege to Congress to stop it. Indeed, they already have. It won't even be posted on the Internet for public review.

They don't care.

It's the same attitude that was demonstrated by the Nobel Prize committee that awarded Obama its Peace Prize barely two weeks after he was inaugurated, announcing it to a stunned world months later when it was apparent to everyone that he had done nothing to earn what was formerly one of the highest international accolades.

They don't care.

The systematic efforts to extend control over all the land and all the waters of the United States through government agencies such as the EPA, the Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Corp of Engineers runs counter to the Constitutional Amendment protecting the sacredness of private property.

They don't care.

It is increasingly evident that President Obama may, in fact, not be a natural born citizen of the United States as required by the Constitution to hold the office. Far too many essential documents have been withheld from public review to not legitimately question this fundamental issue of legal authority. A Democrat Congress will not take this up, but the courts must.

I am reminded that the Declaration of Independence was a long list of grievances set forth by Thomas Jefferson who wrote "when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them (the People) under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government and to provide such new guards for their future security."

Barring a complete change of power in Congress in next year's midterm elections, it is beginning to look like a new Declaration will have to be written as this administration and this Congress continue to run roughshod over the will of the People to bring about their enslavement and the destruction of the nation.

They don't care!
