Democrats are like rapists: both are impervious to cries of "no!"

Democrats are like rapists:  both are impervious to cries of "no!"  Americans went to Tea Party protests, town hall meetings, wrote to their Members of Congress, elected anti ObamaCare Republican Scott Brown from Massachusetts in a special election, and clearly said "no!" every single time to socialized, authoritarian, government-run health care.  In a recent poll, 56% of Americans oppose Obama's "new" government-run health care plan.  However, neither Obama, nor the Democrats in Congress, care that Americans oppose what they are doing.  The elected Democrats have absolute contempt for public opinion and are willing to impose their will with raw political power, irrespective of the damage that this would do to a private health care system that is the best in the world.

Congress should reject President Obama's Federal Budget for the United States (2011)

Many commentators have noted the outrageous price tag of President Obama's 2011 federal budget.  A lot of commentators have failed to note that any money that is spent for programs, departments, or agencies that are not authorized by the United States Constitution is illegitimate and void.  The purpose of our federal government is to secure our liberty, provide for forums where disagreements among individuals or corporations can be adjudicated, and to otherwise leave men free to pursue their self-interest.  

As the Preamble to the United States Constitution states:

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
 Congress should reject President Obama's 2011 budget.
