Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer have an op-ed piece in USA Today in which they claim “Americans have been waiting for nearly a century for quality, affordable health care.” What about the 136 years before the progressives (a form of American socialists) presented it in 1912?
There are reasons there were no socialized medicine bills introduced prior to 1912. The main reason is because the very idea is anathema to the Constitution.
In 1912, socialists and communist forces were swelling in the United States, organizing labor unions and pushing the focus of mainstream politics far to the left. While some open socialists ran on the ballots for various state and federal positions, they still did not make a dent in the System. As such, most leftists knew the only way to destroy the Constitution and work their socialist utopia would be by destroying the Constitution from within. The idea was to get into the main body politic like a cancer and eat away at the fundamental rights until Lady Liberty was little more than a skeleton with a thin skin over her bones. It did not matter if they went in as republicans, democrats, or bull-moose. The idea was to shape the dialogue and, in so shaping, change our form of government.
Health care was and remains one of those socialist ideas intended to eat away at the Constitution so the leftists can inflict their wretched ideology on everyone at the same time. Of course, just like in Stalin’s Russia and Mao’s China, the good things–housing, real health care, vehicles, etc.–are reserved solely for the political class. The average American–which is what they dream every non-politician will be–receives rationed heath care, forced abortions, forced euthanasia, and whatever scraps from their political masters’ tables.
Later in their piece, Pelosi and Hoyer say,
These disruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid not just of differing views — but of the facts themselves. Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American. Drowning out the facts is how we failed at this task for decades.
The interesting thing about this quote is all the energy Nancy Pelosi and her leftist buddies in government and media have expended to do just that: drown out the opposition.
Pelosi has said it is an “astro turf” movement instead of grass roots, hoping that would silence people. She has accused ordinary Americans of being too well dressed to protest. She has claimed ordinary Americans are actually the paid hands of an insurance group trying to quash the socializing of America. And, of course, she likened all ordinary Americans to nazis, trying to silence them or scare them from showing up by painting John and Jane Doe as two swastika carrying, jackbooted thugs there to beat up a politician.
Obama has tried to drown out opposition by threatening people with having their names sent to firstname.lastname@example.org if they dare speak, email, or blog against his brand of socialized medicine.
Other neosocialist politicians, aided by left wing groups and the mainstream media, paint ordinary Americans as mobsters and rioters for exercising their first amendment right to redress government of grievances.
These politicians know what they are doing. They are working feverishly to drown out all opposition to their revolutionary plans, because this is the War. This is the communist revolution in America. Obama is the Marxist version of King Arthur. He is the Socialist Savior, here to draw the sword from the stone and slay all non-socialists.
Opposition is the most patriotic and American thing one can do today. There is no middle ground. Silence is nothing more than a head nod to the neosocialists like Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Barney Frank. The time is now for Americans to choose. Whom will you serve? Liberty or Socialist Slave-masters in DC? The communists have started the revolution. Choose your side.
