Democrats pass government-run (socialist) health care through US Senate

The United States Senate voted to turn America into a soft tyranny.  If the health care legislation becomes law, it will set the precedent that Congress, and not individuals acting according to their own self-interest, will decide who gets health care, how much it will cost, whether it will be provided, and who gets excluded.  All of this will be done based upon political calculations.  It is an act of contempt against the American people to believe that 435 Members of the House of Representatives and 100 US Senators can determine what is the "best" health care.    Suffice it to say, we hope Democrats fail in this endeavor.  

Health care is more of an art than a rigid, bureaucratic, follow-the-rules type of occupation.  The reason why patients choose some doctors over others is precisely because people assume (quite rightly) that certain doctors follow practices that are superior over other doctors.  Some doctors have more experience, talent, insight, education, or are just plain more pleasant to work with.

Health care is so complicated that one person is not able to understand all of the variables that exist within this profession.  What might appear "unnecessary" due to the high cost may be a very useful if it saves one's life.   What Congress is trying to do is ensure that everyone receives equal health care.  That is not possible in the real world.  As a result, the most that can be attained is to ruin everyone's health care through providing disincentives for doctors to provide the absolute best treatment, by subsidizing medical treatment (which will increase demand on doctors who are already overwhelmed through existing government mandates and programs), and taxing every aspect of the country, to the point in which the country will be a lot poorer.

Exceptional undergraduate students who might otherwise consider the medical profession will give up on their dreams because they are not interested in subjecting themselves to the whims of bureaucrats in Washington, D.C., who are only concerned about costs, and not about how to achieve actual results for the patient.  When the government agent gets in between a doctor and his patient, nothing good can come from this.  Why have we done this to ourselves?

Well, the answer is simple:  Democrats truly do have contempt and despise the America that we love.  This legislation is part of an effort to destroy what is special and exceptional about America.  Thankfully, we have the opportunity to fire these Democrats in November of 2010.

Barack Obama, in his own words, said that the Democrat Party has "similarly zealotry" as Republicans -- but just can't "enshrine some of [our] more radical ideas into law"

Candidate Barack Obama said "there are those within the Democratic Party who tend toward similar zealotry.  But those who do have never come close to possessing the power of a Rove or a DeLay, the power to take over a party, fill it with loyalists, and enshrine some of their more radical ideas into law."

Until now, that is!

John Kerry supports massive taxation of Americans to redistribute to the Third World -- all in the name of "climate change"

Senator John Kerry supports punishing millions of Americans through "global warming" laws that will increase energy taxes to astronomical levels.  He also supports stealing the wealth from millions of Americans and sending it to the Third World, with the aim of forcing those who live in poor countries to continue to remain in poverty.  Does this sound like someone who loves mankind?  We think it sounds like someone who has contempt for man and man's mind.  Why would anyone impose such disastrous policies if they truly loved America?  John Kerry believes that the geniuses of the world, the ones who create energy intensive industries, which he could not create on his own due to his poor intellect, should be punished precisely because of their success.  It is obvious that John Kerry hates America, and also hates the poor who live in the Third World, too.

Thankfully, there are Americans in Congress who are sensible.  Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla) is traveling to the Coppenhagen conference to let the elitist world leaders know that America is not going to bankrupt itself to fulfill the collectivist fantasies of the world's socialists.

Lisa Jackson, EPA administrator, seeks dictatorial powers.

Lisa Jackson, the Environmental Protection Agency Administrator, is threatening Congress to impose cap and trade legislation on the American public.  If Congress choses to listen to its constituents, and decides not to adopt a "cap and trade" law, Ms. Jackson will impose "command and control" regulations on the American economy.  As Ms. Jackson says in her own words:

"If you don't pass this legislation, then . . . the EPA is going to have to regulate in this area," the official said. "And it is not going to be able to regulate on a market-based way, so it's going to have to regulate in a command-and-control way, which will probably generate even more uncertainty."

Who does Ms. Jackson intend to command?  The American public -- especially when Americans are exchanging value for value -- in other words, economic transactions.  Who is Lisa Jackson, anyway?  She is an unelected technocrat that most voters have never heard of of.  But she wants dictatorial powers over the American public.  She is desperate because Congress, which must answer to the American people from time to time, is starting to balk at the outrageous costs and dubious science associated with the climate change hoax.  Tell your Representative that you do not want to give in to threats by a power hungry bureaucrat like Lisa Jackson.

A message to the people in Iran

We stand with the people of Iran. The Iranian regime is a Islamofascist gangster state, one in which the regime has an unlimited amount of power and authority to use arbitrary edicts to rule the people through fear, intimidation, and harassment. The people of Iran need to stand up, say "no more!", and remove this regime. Your leaders are using the power of the government to enslave you and to enforce conformity among the entire public. This is not the proper role of a government. The proper role of a government is to protect your individual rights, protect you from foreign invaders, and provide a court system that uses objective law to decide disputes among men. Your government is not following this form of government, and you are free to abolish it.
