I have been inundated with an overwhelming workload the past two days. For this reason, I haven't had much time to analyze the obvious repercussions that will follow the passage and signing of one of the worst laws to ever get manure shoveled out of the halls of Congress and onto the heads of the American people.
Evidently, Victor Davis Hanson has time to sort it out and did so quite well in this essay. It is long....but well worth the time it takes to read it.
Like Mr Hanson and a host of others, I am one of those people who truly believe that this bill is not about healthcare coverage for the poor, anymore than cap and trade is about preserving the environment. It is about increasing power, control, and the authority of the federal government over the American people. It accomplishes this by increasing the dependency of the people upon said government, just like many other programs forced upon us by the nanny state.
Now, the Leftist technocratic robots (who cannot form a remotely intelligent opinion outside of the socialist/statist box) will have us all believe that we are racists, as well as selfish and greedy jerks who care nothing about the poor. They will have us believe that we are insensitive and that we want people to fail, so we can capitalize on their misfortunes.
One only needs to read this piece of garbage to see that this is a bitter, hateful, and malicious bunch of hacks who engineered this trash into law. Instead of humility and gratitude, they seek to destroy people who merely do not agree with their socialist ideology.
As I sit here and ponder the future outcome of this massive wholesale trashing of the American people's rights and institutions, one thing is clear and will certainly come to pass:
The Democrats will lose big this November and the shoe will once again be on the other foot.
Now that the bar has been lowered to include the blatant disregard of the will of the majority of the American people, there will be a time, when they will live according to that same disregard -- when they once again are in the minority. And when that time comes to pass for all to see, please remember something:
They made their bed and they will be required to lay in it.
