Democrats Desecrate Gadsden Flag – ‘Don’t Tread on my ObamaCare’

With 10 days until Obamacare sign-up deadline before (some) will incur a fine, Democratic strategist Christine Pelosi has taken to promoting a desecrated version of the Gadsden flag that reads, “Don’t Tread on my ObamaCare.”

Is Clarence Thomas the only man in America that can take down ObamaCare?

In several of the most important areas of constitutional law, Thomas has emerged as an intellectual leader of the Supreme Court. Since the arrival of Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., in 2005, and Justice Samuel A. Alito, Jr., in 2006, the Court has moved to the right when it comes to the free-speech rights of corporations, the rights of gun owners, and, potentially, the powers of the federal government; in each of these areas, the majority has followed where Thomas has been leading for a decade or more. Rarely has a Supreme Court Justice enjoyed such broad or significant vindication.

Senator DeMint in South Carolina Promoting Health Care Freedom

demint_teaparty_columbia_sc-089aToday, U.S. Senator Jim DeMint announced details for his 5th Annual “South Carolina on the Move” Tour. Senator DeMint will visit 12 cities throughout the state to promote his plan for health care freedom that will make it possible for Americans to have access to personal health insurance and the freedom to make their own health care decisions.

“There are serious problems with the President’s plan for a government takeover of health care and I look forward to hearing from South Carolinians on this issue. I will continue to fight for real health care reform by fixing what’s broken, not ending what’s working. We should allow patients to buy affordable insurance from any state, give fair tax treatment to those who don’t get insurance at work, and lower costs by reducing frivolous lawsuits. I’ve authored the Health Care Freedom plan so every South Carolinian, and all Americans, have access to a personal health plan that they can own, afford, and keep,” said Senator Jim DeMint.

As part of the tour, Senator DeMint will also be participating in a series of town halls across South Carolina to discuss what is going on up in Washington and listen to South Carolinians and their ideas. DeMint added, “South Carolinians want to have their voices heard in this health care debate and on other important issues. I look forward to seeing some old friends and hearing some new ideas.”

DeMint also plans to focus his tour on the economy visiting multiple businesses and meeting with local area Chambers of Commerce across the state. Throughout the tour he will present his annual “South Carolina on the Move Award,” designed to highlight businesses and organizations that have shown exceptional leadership in their community or field of expertise.

“Our state and nation are going through extraordinarily tough economic times. But South Carolinians know that an out-of-control Washington helped cause this recession through Fannie Mae, easy money policies, and runaway spending and debt. They also know that bailouts, takeovers, and wasteful spending programs won’t create lasting growth, but instead will mortgage away our future. But despite these troubled times, there are some encouraging signs thanks to the hard work of South Carolina small businesses and I want to highlight these successes. And as I travel the state, I will renew my commitment to families and small businesses to continue to fight attempts by Washington to raise electricity and health care taxes that would destroy jobs and hurt our chance of a real recovery.”

Huckabee – Who Is Afraid of Dissent?

I read the op-ed in USA Today by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and huckabee_fairtaxHouse Majority Leader Steny Hoyer. I was disappointed to see the headline “Un-American Attacks Can’t Derail Health Care Debate.” Speaker Pelosi and Leader Hoyer say “let the facts be heard.” At least they have that right. The American people have shown up at hundreds of townhall meetings to do just that. They want to voice their opinions and listen to what their Representatives in Congress have to say.

An American voicing their opinion at a meeting with their representative, even in a loud and raucous manner, is not disruptive. In fact, the right to freedom of expression is guaranteed by the First Amendment. In case our Congressional leaders need to be reminded, it says “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

I have watched the news clips of many townhall meetings. At only two of the hundreds of meetings held, have I seen situations get out of control. Both of those incidents were caused not by the average Americans wanting to be heard, but by organized supporters of the Democrats trying to stop the free speech of people opposed to the proposed bill.

Incidentally, none of the Democrats seem to be talking about one of the big issues at these townhall meetings: How can Congress vote on a bill, or for that matter, the President sign a bill, that they haven’t bothered to read. It makes you wonder who has written the bill? Will anyone who represents the American people bother to read it before they force it on the people?

The American people have every right to expect answers to their questions. They ask legitimate questions: Will this bill increase health care costs? Will it add to the out of control deficit? What effect will it have on elderly relatives, young families, small businesses, and every day people? Could it be that the Democratic leadership is trying stop these questions because they don’t know the answers?
