No means no, Mr. President!
President Obama, you continue to make unwelcome advances on our liberties. Figuratively speaking, I am sick of slapping your hand when it rides up too high on my smooth, tempting Bill of Rights. You pushed through your bogus Cap-and-Trade which counter to your electioneering rhetoric is indeed a tax on everyone in America, arguably hitting the people below 250K the hardest. Then you pushed through a massive and unprecedented budget that, again contrary to the rhetoric used to sell it was just every single off-the-shelf leftist big government program from the last 40 years. And now, after saddling my grandchildren with the debt for your massive expansion of government, you want to seize control of the American Health Care system, the best such system in the world. Keep your damned hands off of my freedom, you repugnant statist.
It was one thing when it was just libertarian types who were shocked and revolted by your attempt to remake our country in your collectivist Alinsky-ite vision. Libertarians of all stripes, even us more practical lowercase-L libertarians, have always stood against men like you, men who appear to worship the State when in fact they only worship themselves but use the power of the State to attempt to elevate themselves to the level of their own staggering self-importance. But this has gotten much bigger than that. It is not just the perennial rabble rousers now; we have been joined by young people and grandparents. When I looked around at my fellow patriots at the Atlanta Tea Party back on tax day I realized that this is not just a bunch of guys marching for gun rights like we did back in the early Clinton years… this is a slice of America. More than that, it is a slice of the people who make America work, as opposed to the people who want to find a way to live off of the rest of us. Those people still support you, like the hogs feeding at the trough that they are.
You are going to make another attempt tonight to convince Americans that we should accept a move to a Soviet-style health care sytem, a proposal that has been increasingly and resoundingly rejected by most Americans – at least those who are not already societal parasites.
Your response to our pushback is predictable. I dare you to try to implement anything close to the Fairness Doctrine to attempt to muzzle the opposition. I dare you, Mr. President.
Keep your hands off my liberty, you radical freedom-loathing beta male.
