A Passel Of Lies...

...is the health care bill, as we say out in the country.

In a recent trip to Iowa, to trumpet the benefits of the legislation, Obama said, "We made a promise. That promise has been kept. From this day forward, all of the cynics, all the naysayers — they're going to have to confront the reality of what this reform is and what it isn't. They'll have to finally acknowledge this isn't a government takeover of our health care system."

Oh really? Perhaps someone needs to define "government takeover", 'cause to a simple man like me, mandatory healthcare by the government's decree, sounds like government takeover. The brazenness of those legislators is appalling! The attitude that "although the American people are opposed to this bill, we know better than them, that this bill will help them in the long run, so we're voting for it."

Talk about taxation without representation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was reading back through the Declaration of Independence the other day and it applies directly to our situation today. Below I have posted a portion of it with the italicized parts what I edited.

The history of the present leader of the United States is a history of repeated injuries and usurpation, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused to submit himself to the Constitution.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

He has imposed taxes on us without our consent.

Fortunately, some states, including Alabama, are seeking legislation to effectively nullify the Health Care Bill.

I think it is important that at the very least American's voices are heard that have this concern.

It is not about parties...it's about legislature that could set an unconstitutional precedent if not corrected.

I don't think that the American people have really been represented well by either party. All they have really succeeded in doing is coloring the issue in blue and grey tones.

Quite so. It's all true unfortunately.
As always, Jesus is the answer...not the efforts of fallible man.
