Last June, when Barack Obama proposed to complete a de facto federal takeover of the U.S. healthcare system in three mere megalomaniacal months, the public reacted with a firestorm of anger.

And why not that super-heated response; for in addition to placing the power to control medicine into the distant, unreachable hands of federal bureaucrats, the Democratic idea of healthcare reform means imposing billions in new taxes and costs upon individuals and corporations as well as sucking an astonishing $500 billion from healthcare for the elderly at a time when demographics put Medicare on a path to reach 75 million enrollees by 2030, an increase of 28 million over 2010 numbers.

However, as fierce as it was, the '09 blaze has only intensified since congressional Democrats wallowing in a gargantuan manure pit of payoffs wrote Obamacare secretly, passed it through an unprecedented "reconciliation" process, and, in a final act of middle-fingered arrogance, told the American people that when, one day, they learn what's in the 1700 page monstrosity, they will come to love it.

So, with a majority of the public more determined than ever in its opposition to this perverse power grab, what have Democrats decided to do?

What else but attempt to distract the nation from the truth about Obamacare by attacking decent, ordinary citizens who oppose the monstrosity as violent, racist, Know-Nothings a particularly vile form of name-calling whose dirty bombs explode with the stink of odious lies and disgusting hypocrisies.

Odious lies because to hear Democratic politicians and liberal commentators tell it, the country has been swamped by a massive wave of anti-Obamacare violence and threats of violence, conceived, coordinated, and carried out by Tea Party members and other honest, law-abiding citizens who represent Main Street America.

As for disgusting hypocrisies, the following facts and observations, though starkly incomplete, are sufficient to make the point:

. . . Speaking in Philadelphia in June of '08, after having wrapped up the Democratic Presidential Nomination, Barack Obama employed this metaphor to instruct his supporters about how to react to political opponents:

If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.

But miracle of miracles, a presumptive presidential nominee's invocation of the liberal-hated gun didn't impel Democrats to foaming at the mouth tirades against speech that "incites" violence.

Neither did the fact that "cowboy" Obama chose as the venue for his "gunslinging" poetry the city in which a Democratic goon squad assaulted peaceful protestors during a '98 Clinton speech. . . the city at whose polls in '08, members of the New Black Panther Party behaved in a manner that Bartle Bull, an "old liberal" civil rights attorney, called "the most blatant form of voter intimidation I've ever seen" but which Obama's AG, who refused to prosecute, and Democrats of the House Judiciary Committee, who killed a motion to have DOJ provide Congress with data regarding the case, apparently regard as the most insignificant of misdemeanors.

. . . In August of '09, in St. Louis, Missouri, a black conservative was viciously beaten while handing out "Don't Tread On Me" flags after a town hall meeting hosted by Democratic congressman Russ Carnahan.

However, the nation's Democrats, especially those farthest left, couldn't work themselves up into a proper sweat about that act of violence because with psyches ravaged by the obsessive gnawing of neurotic guilt, they march their lives behind a banner that reads, "Please Tread on Me; I Deserve It."

(It must also be pointed out that every guilt-ridden step of the way, Democrats are linked arm in arm with the likes of the NYT's Frank Rich and others who surely regard the historic rattlesnake flag as a venomously provocative reminder of America's hideous white male history.)

. . . Next, there is "Death of a President," the 2006 film which offers viewers a fictitious account of the assassination of President George W. Bush.

As expected, arguments about such a film continue to this day. However, for the purpose here, we can put arguments about art and social responsibility aside to focus on this undeniable assertion:

If a filmmaker who is persona non grata in Liberaldom even considers a script that depicts the assassination of a sitting Democratic president on the silver (or any other) screen, we won't have to worry about global-warming-induced coastal flooding wreaking localized devastation in 100 years because within twenty-four hours of learning about the potential project, Democrats will inundate the entire nation with a not-so-pacific ocean of spittle spewed from a quadrillion raging condemnations.

. . . Finally, there are the theatrical hand-wringings of Democrats who allege a connection between extremist individuals or groups and the dissenting Americans previously mentioned in this piece.

In reality, of course, these crocodilian expressions of fear have not a thing to do with truth but everything to do with foul, expedient stratagems concocted by incestuous, "Doesn't Everyone?" frauds who, for example, jump at the chance to serve on a committee with Bill Ayers.

The unrepentant Bill Ayres who is proud of the acts he carried out with his brothers and sisters of the terrorist Weather Underground, the unrepentant Bill Ayres whose current real "educational" agenda is to radicalize school children with his "small 'c' communist ideology," the unrepentant Bill Ayres whom Democrats and other liberals have granted a professorship at the University of Illinois at Chicago, rewarded with the title "Distinguished Professor of Education," and honored as a "Senior University Scholar."

With just those realities having been put on the table, the question that arises is this:

How should conservatives, independents, libertarians, and moderates respond to the odious lies and disgusting hypocrisies that have become the stock-in-trade of Democratic politicians regarding Obamacare and virtually every other major issue facing the nation?

The answer to that question, of course, is this:

With calm, serious, factual discussions that include copious quotes from Barack Obama and his minions the latter because in coming elections, it is crucially important for those who believe in the Jeffersonian vision of the American Experiment and Dream to do everything they can to help Democrats (to borrow loosely from Hamlet) blow themselves sky-high out of power with their own rotten, reeking bombs.
