Caesar is apparently preparing to cross the Rubicon again. Just as that soon-to-be Emperor moved forward with his plans to march on Rome despite warnings that he should cease and desist, Barack Obama–with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid right by his side–may have every intent of marching on (and trampling over) the will of the American people in their attempt to take hold of the United States economy by force.
Hyperbole? Absolutely not. Consider for a moment a column published yesterday by Dick Morris, a man who knows a little something about Democrat presidents following the failure of major health care legislation.
Here’s what I learned top Democrats are planning to implement.
Senate Democrats will go to the House with a two-part deal.
First, the House will pass the Senate’s Obamacare bill that passed the Senate in December. The House leadership will vote on the Senate bill, and Pelosi will allow no amendments or modifications to the Senate bill.
How will Pelosi’s deal fly with rambunctious liberal members of her majority who don’t like the Senate bill, especially its failure to include a public option, put heavy fines on those who don’t get insurance, and offering no income tax surcharge on the “rich”?
That’s where the second part of the Pelosi-deal comes in.
Behind closed doors, Reid and Pelosi have agreed in principle that changes to the Senate bill will be made to satisfy liberal House members — but only after the Senate bill is passed and signed into law by Obama.
This deal will be secured by a pledge from Reid and the Senate’s Democratic caucus that they will make “fixes” to the Senate bill after it becomes law with Obama’s John Hancock.
This is beyond outrageous, and as the Democratic Party leadership continues to show ambivalence toward any negative political repercussions, the American people are understandably frustrated in wondering just what it is any of us can possibly do. After all, the War for Independence, started in the very same state which Scott Brown won a week ago, was fought over less tyranny than we’re seeing now.
Megalomaniacs very rarely care to acknowledge the possible consequences of their actions or to couch their decisions in the context of a larger picture. In the wake of the Brown victory last week, in which one of the left’s most cherished strongholds–Massachusetts–was unexpectedly and somewhat “forcefully” taken from them by the American people, these far-left ideologues are now willing to go to the proverbial mat in Alinsky-type fashion – the ends justify any means.
And not only are they ambivalent — I’d be willing to bet that they’re even willing to welcome political annihilation as a side effect of passing one of the pillars of their decades-old agenda, but I’m beginning to question whether they even see that as part of their quickly-approaching horizon. This is now a battle to the political death–pardon the pun–with America’s very heart as the prize.
Unfortunately, there’s approximately 25 percent of our citizenry who feel as though the decisions coming from this White House are good ones. Those people don’t see Obama, Pelosi and Reid as what they are — statists willing to expose themselves as enemies to the United States Constitution. Obama, Pelosi and Reid are now willfully working against nearly three-quarters of the American populace, and they are subverting the entire legislative process in order to accomplish their goals. Couple this with their laissez-faire attitude toward protecting the American people from terrorist attacks, and it doesn’t take very long to cobble together the entire picture.
How long until we see these people for what they are? How long until we admit that they do not like the United States of America as it was founded, and will stop at nothing until their goals are met? Anybody who doesn’t see this by now is just plain lost.
Tomorrow night, Barack Obama will give his first official State of the Union address. Undoubtedly, he will try to come across as a forceful leader, as an embattled president who is “acting in the best interest of the downtrodden.”
As the country listens to his empty words, however, as he acknowledges the unrest and claims to have listened to it, America needs to remember what Dick Morris wrote and ask themselves a few questions: Why would any politician so stubbornly attempt to force a piece of legislative agenda down the throats of nearly all of his own people? Is he that stupid? Is it that he sees himself as that much more intelligent than the rest of us?
Or is it, just possibly, something else? Where, Americans need to ask, is this man’s heart?
