Now, The Die May Be Cast

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?

    He is not stupid, he is determined. The goal is to get the camel’s nose under the tent, whatever the price. That will be his legacy!

    They wouldn’t dare, would they? If they do this, I feel they will be in for a BIG surprise in November. Why would anyone take Harry or Nancy at their word and believe their promises? If the Dems vote for this with promises to be made, they are dumber than they think we are!

    He is not Caesar. He is Napoleon.

  4. Linda says:

    If they do this, then they obviously have something else planned for November other than an election. Something bad is about to happen.

    I don’t know, Linda. It’s been a while since I was a liberal Democrat, but putting myself in their shoes (I’m gonna need a shower later) I gotta think it’s pretty frustrating to have an agenda planned out for four decades and have the right majority and White House lined up, only to see it derailed by the very people who you dislike the most: Americans from flyover states.

    I don’t think they’re planning on doing away with an election. I just think they’re so out of touch that they believe they’ll be okay. I had a discussion in the courthouse today with a liberal lawyer who disagrees that 2010 could even come close to resembling 1994. They just are out of touch, and when you combine that with desperation, you get this.

    He’s not Caesar or Napoleon. He’s Mousselinni.

    Linda, we’re all wondering who these people are and what the “end-game” is. Politically, it doesn’t make any sense. As far as I know, any law – or program – can be repealed, so one has to ask “Why seal your political doom by enacting a bill that will sufficiently anger the public to virtually guarantee reversal by a newly-elected Congress in 2011?”

    I don’t think that “they” are making short-term calculations. My guess is that their (and I wish that I knew who “their” is) strategy is to “go to the mat”, even if, as Obama recently said, “I’d rather be a GOOD one-term president than etc, etc”, in order to set up a moral story-line for the progressives to further divide the country. This is pure Alinsky – to ultimately convince the “have-nots” that open rebellion is an unequivocal “moral” cause and that the end therefore justifies the destructive means that will be employed to “fundamentally transform the United States”.

    On the other hand, maybe while I was at Starbucks this afternoon someone close by was smoking something bad and I’m just suffering the effects of second-hand smoke. Hope that’s it. Yeah, I’m sure that’s it. I AM only a few miles from the Mexican border and there’s a lot of that kind of smoke floating around here.

    Jeff:

    Obama, Pelosi, Reid and Company are despicable. They have proven themselves to be deadly serious in all their actions. They are raping America under the appearance of helping America. Look at the fruit of their actions!

    They undermine and find fault with the Constitution. Reid said the Iraq War was lost. They take bribes to control the legislative adgenda. They are traitors, committing treason.

    To say “[t]hey just are out of touch, and when you combine that with desperation, you get this” is an exceedingly great understatement.

    Other politicians have been out of touch and taken correction on voting day and other times. But Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and Company are not just “other politicans.” They are as serious as Japanese kamikazee pilots. Never have politicans in America be so brazen and bold in their arrogance.

    At some point we will have to revisit April 19, 1776.

    If you really seriously want to break the stranglehold of the Obama, Reid, Pelosi troika, start a campaign to get the USA out of the coalition that is in a seige against Judea and Jerusalem. It is recorded in the Bible that Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and King David actually bought these specified areas. The sales are recorded in the Bible, the names of the owners. The fact that the properities were surveyed and valued and that the Patriarchs paid the full price. The reasons for why they bought the land and refused to take it as a free gift, are all recorded in great detail. So you have to ask yourself why is the whole world so desperately determined to take these Holy parts of the land of Israel and give them to somebody else?
    I believe if the world succeeds in wresting Judea and Jerusalem from the Jews evil triumps, and evil will engulf the whole world. Evil such as the world has never seen before. Already its tentacles are reaching for the children, the future of the world.
    Maybe the Tea Partiers will agree to make it their first priority. It has to be the first, the number one top priority, not way down at the bottom.
    I am sure that with the first banner proclaiming in big bold letters ” Get us out of the seige against Judea and Jerusalem now!’ or words to that effect, the power of the White House will begin to wane.

    I’m with Psydog above. Arrivederci liberty.

  13. Gail B. says:

    I think the Progressives (not the Dems) have a game plan in place:

    (1) Make as much headway as possible to destroy the economy;

    (2) Pretend to listen to conservatives and say that there is overspending;

    (3) Make light of the fact their butts got kicked by Massachusetts;

    (4) Turn right by freezing “spending” (but the stimulus appropriations are still okay), to make it appear that “they’ve got it;”

    (5) Continue to appear to make turns to the right, because, after all, there’s an election to win in November;

    (6) After the election, proceed with business as usual — of destroying the economy;

    (7) Continue the push for healthcare reform and cap and trade to overthrow the government.

    The only hope the Progressives have is to appear to be conservative to regain Independents’ confidence and in the Progressive Democrats. They will not give any ground, only appear to do so.

    The Progressives are interested in only one thing: CONTROL.

    We need to seat Scott Brown NOW!!!
