So I'm frightened.
I read the President's speech about health care, and it sounds very nice. Until you realize that nearly every promise that he makes is a blatant lie. He promises that everyone will have coverage, and says he won't raise taxes to do it, which strains common sense. He promises that there won't be a one-payer, government run system, but the bill currently floated in the house makes this a virtual certainty. Mandating absurd levels of coverage for private insurance, and then subsidizing the public program with taxpayer money, guarantees that the public option will be cheaper for the consumer, driving the private insurance out of business.
All this in the face of a questionable economy, and the largest spending spree in history, possibly by any nation, ever.
Who the devil thought up this garbage?
Well, at least we know how Obama got elected. He contracted with the community organization called ACORN, which he used to work for, to register voters. This organization then proceeded to fraudulently register hundreds of thousands of voters across the nation. They are currently under investigation for voter fraud. But that's not the sick part.
Two conservative journalists posed as a pimp and a prostitute, and went to two local ACORN offices to ask for help and housing funding to set up an apartment where they could bring 13 year olds from Africa to use as prostitutes. The ACORN officials not only didn't call the cops, they helped them find ways to avoid the taxman, and helped them set up this so-called business.
Don't believe me? Can't blame you. The videos are available here: (http://biggovernment.com/), you will have to scroll down to see them. Full text also available.
I just finished reading the bit in the Book of Mormon that talks about how this is a blessed land unless we are no longer righteous. Boy are we in trouble.
We elected this jerk. We are ultimately responsible.
What to do? You could try protests.
Estimates of the crowd vary, but some place it at nearly 1 million people.
My father taught me, If no good people run for office, who is left? I'm not signing up to run, obviously, but it seems to me that the time to sit on the sidelines and wait for the good-ol'-boys in DC to fix things is well past.
