No spin on Obamacare

There is no way to spin the loss.  We lost the health care decision. And for all practical purposes we may have lost the Republic.  We have tumbled into the tryanny of democracy and the tryanny of the elite. 

The only hope, and it is a slim hope, is the election.  Obama must be defeated.  Conservatives must re-take the House and the Senate.

Now is the time to donate money to conservative races.  If the Dems win, you won't have it anyway.  They'll tax it all away.

Rep. Gohmert: ‘It’s Time for the American People to Get Outraged’


  1. I just hope that enough voters sense the "outrage" in time to stop it!

  2. My fear is that the election will have been fixed. If in fact obamer wins we are as a republic, toast.

  3. My fear is what dean0's is -- my other fear is, JB, that there won't be ENOUGH voters, given all the voters that are on the government take/payroll, the illegals, the voters that are brain-dead and the voters who ARE dead.

  4. ... and, by the way, I'm OUTRAGED!

  5. In their genius, the Founders devised a system that is amenable to change, yet protected from wild swings of emotional voter backlash (mob rule). The elected terms of US Senators is staggered so that at most 1/3 can be replaced at a time. This provides a stability that protects against sudden spasmodic change in direction, like a deep keel on a boat. The entire House is potentially replaceable, giving the voting public a handbrake of sorts. As we saw with the 2010 midterms, reversing control of the House largely put a stop to the Democrat legislative agenda the last two years. Anything that has been implemented by executive order can be un-implemented by executive order. If the willpower of the electorate demands a change in direction, it takes multiple election cycles, and possibly multiple generations. This will not change overnight, just as an ocean liner cannot change directions on a dime. You can consider the Executive to be the engine, the Senate to be the rudder and the House to be the brakes. This is what a republic looks like. The question to be asked is whether the electorate collectively has the desire to change the direction and the endurance to sustain that desire over time. (See Gene's recent 'vector' post.)

    1. Well said---the simplicity of the Founders' genius causes it to be overlooked by some. We do have a hard job ahead of us. So many people don't know how to think. Dorothy Sayers in Lost Tools of Learning said:
      "We who were scandalized in 1940 when men were sent to fight armored tanks with rifles, are not scandalized when young men and women are sent into the world to fight massed propaganda with a smattering of "subjects"; and when whole classes and whole nations become hypnotized by the arts of the spell binder, we have the impudence to be astonished."

    2. Whew... that's too deep for me, SM. I'll leave all that thinking stuff up to y'all and I'll just take care of the easy stuff (read that any way you want to, gmw. LOL)
      And, gmw, your comment about Sayers is just outstanding! TOO TRUE!

    3. An old adage that I have used in firearms education:

      "The man (or men) who devised a fool-proof device,
      did not take into consideration the ingenuity of the fool."

      The progressives that wish to destroy our wonderful county and its government are not fools at all, but rather have devised a way to destroy all that is good about the USA.

  6. Sorry Mam, your "engine" is too corrupted to be re-built. We must replace it with a brand new one.

  7. M4E- Okay- let me say it another way- If you are on a train heading for a downed bridge, you should prepare to jump off in order to survive the crash, but you would look silly if you jumped off and the crash was avoided. Folks are now starting to plan their leap, but still hoping the brakes can be applied.
    So let's see now:
    Automobiles- economy in a ditch- "check"
    Boats- ship of state heading wrong direction- "check"
    Trains- heading for a collision- "check"
    Planes- I'm working on a pilotless airplane analogy for tomorrow.


    1. I could have sworn I left a reply here.
      Maybe the moderator didn't approve of it or I just thought I did... sorta like I thought I remembered to turn the valve to my oxygen tank to "ON" this morning.
      Anyway, thanks SM. Think I about half way got it now.
