I injured myself on President's Day (that would be last Monday, for you liberals). Nothing major, I am okay. I felt like I had gone ten rounds with Randy Couture and lost by submission. And despite the discomfort, and sometimes outright pain, I still went to work and did what I had to do to take care of my family. That's the kind of person that I am. When the chips are down, I do what it takes to do what is right.
Unfortunately, as my regular readers probably noticed, I did not do any writing during the week. Usually, I write a number of posts a day, but the long hours of my job, combined with the aching body of the week, gave me a good enough reason to take it easy this week, and get plenty of rest.
While I was resting, I had the opportunity to do a lot of thinking, too.
Liberals continued to attack me in comments and Emails in ways that Conservatives never do (well, I shouldn't say never, I am sure there are a few right-wingers that haunt liberal sites too). The leftists ask questions, demand responses, and make false accusations based on limited data for one reason, and one reason only - to elicit a reaction.
Watching the television, I watched as the Democrats accuse the Republicans of being the "Party of No," with no health care alternative, and so forth.'
The Left just doesn't get it.
If Conservatives believe in limited government, why would they offer a government solution to health care? Where in the Constitution does it give the federal government the authority to even consider intruding upon the health insurance industry?
"Ah," the leftist may say, "so you have no solution then?"
The solution is simple. Less government involvement, and enable the free market to solve the problem. (details in a future post)
And don't give me this "the free market had its chance the last eight years" bull crap, either.
The Free Market, ever since FDR, hasn't had the chance to resolve the problem.
Ever hear the old saying, don't fix what ain't broke?
Before Obama's drive for socialism, Johnson's Great Society, Franklin Delano Roosevelt's New Deal, and Teddy Roosevelt's progressive politics the United States grew to become a worldwide leader in just about every category. Then, as the socialists I just mentioned, and many more, tried the alter America, despite their efforts the Free Market Capitalism system, and limited government involvement in citizen's lives, continued to make this country the most exceptional nation on Earth.
Do you know why?
The Founding Fathers forged this nation with their blood and honor to be a free nation - one nation under God.
It has worked for 234 years beautifully. So why, might one ask, would Obama and the idiot leftist Congressional Democrats wish to change it?
Why do they hate what America has been?
Why is individualism, and personal responsibility such a dangerous thing in their opinion?
Why do they hold to Marxist ideals, and then call them something else?
I've been thinking about this for the last few days, and I will be discussing a lot of this in the near future, so stay tuned.
But I will leave you with this, so that you may ponder what is coming. . .
THE CONSTITUTION IS THE SOLUTION.
