Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Wake Up, America!

The Obama administration, its co-conspirators in Congress and their union/special interest cronies are passing legislation unread and unexamined, under the guise of urgency. They are wasting billions of borrowed dollars, burying us in unaffordable debt, destroying industries, eliminating jobs and threatening our health and our liberty.

We absolutely must rise up and demand an immediate and permanent halt to their chicanery!  The Wake Up America Movement has the right idea with their petition drive. The wording is less than perfect, but it is out there, on the record, and it is the best we have. Lets run with it!  If you love liberty and prosperity and want to restore them, then sign this petition, join the movement and become an activist.

The petitions will be used to apply pressure on fence sitting legislators in swing districts, where following the left wing line is likely to be a risky career move.



I am among millions of Americans who vehemently object to the irresponsible rushed passage of unnecessary legislation which is both unaffordable and which serves purposes other than those being purported, namely: HEALTH CARE and CAP & TRADE bills now being put forward.

I am among the growing numbers of citizen protesters who recognize there is no viable, legitimate source of funding for these programs which will burden our lives and those of our future generations for no greater purpose than providing political favors to special interests while causing a wasteful level of Federal bureaucracy to intrude on our lives.

I am among the voters of your state and neighboring states who recognize we will be adversely impacted by these bills, if made law and am appalled you have not studied these matters sufficiently to realize these same facts. The rush to spend money we do not have is shockingly irresponsible!

I, like other Americans nationwide, am appalled at the careless passage of laws by the 11th Congress without a thorough reading nor due deliberation on the immediate and long term consequences of these actions by Congress.

Therefore, I am among those putting you – as a public official sworn to represent the People -that if you support CAP & TRADE or HEALTH CARE legislation put forward by this administration I will work ceaselessly to inform the voters in your state and district of your misconduct in giving complicity to reckless Federal spending and Federal usurping of authority over our lives – which these legislations contain and misrepresent!

Hands off My Healthcare!

Patients First sent out an email containing information about the Health Care Destruction proposal. They urge us to sign their petition and send a link to our contacts so as to exert maximum political pressure to prevent the passage of this monstrosity. [The list below is  quoted directly from the email.]

This latest bill includes:

  • A new government health insurance plan.
  • An individual mandate that every one of us must purchase government-defined health insurance or face new taxes and fines. This is a clear breaking of the president’s pledge not to raise taxes on Americans earning less than $250,000 per year – at least 8 million Americans and their families will see their taxes go up.
  • An employer mandate that will make businesses either provide government-defined insurance coverage or pay a penalty tax.
  • Another income tax on households and many small businesses with an annual income of $350,000 to help pay for all this. This is another broken campaign promise.  The president had pledged not to increase any American’s taxes above the level of the 1990s – and that is just what would happen.
  • Did I mention that the government will decide what is an “adequate” health insurance package? A new bureaucracy – the Benefits Advisory Committee – and the Secretary of Health and Human Services will decide what coverage you have to pay for and what diseases and treatments will be covered.
  • Another bailout that will cost taxpayers tens of billions of dollars – this time to unions to bail out their retiree health care plans.
  • More Comparative Effectiveness Research that could lead to government bureaucrats denying you health care treatment options.

This legislation is 1018 pages in length. Here is the first page.

H. R. ll

To provide affordable, quality health care for all Americans and reduce
the growth in health care spending, and for other purposes.


of California, Mr. STARK, Mr. PALLONE, and Mr. ANDREWS) introduced
the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on

To provide affordable, quality health care for all Americans

and reduce the growth in health care spending, and

for other purposes.

1 Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representa-

2 tives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,



5 (a) SHORT TITLE.–This Act may be cited as the

6 America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009”.

Notice the high level of abstraction.  Exactly what do these terms mean, and how are they to be measured?

  • affordable
  • quality
  • choice

What the Hell is “affordable”?  My gross income last year was $575.00 .  Most health insurance plans would cost me more than that each month.  If one of those  ‘crats would say that word in my presence, in the context of that legislation, I would offer to pull his head out of his ass and explain reality to him.

Quality? The difference between surgery and non-invasive treatment? The difference between chemo therapy that damn near kills you and a newer, more expensive but less toxic treatment? Accept the new flu vaccine or decline?  Who makes those choices? Not some G’d bureaucrat, not for me anyway!!!

Choice? Let us choose an insurance plan? What insurance company can compete with the government’s printing press?  The legislation will make competing plans both impossible economically and illegal. There is a provision in the law which will forbid adding policy holders. As policy holders die or switch to the government plan, their pools will diminish, until they go out of business.

Reduce the growth in health care spending?  Why do we elect Morons to govern this nation?! If the population grows, if morbidity rates increase, if the population ages, there will be more demand for medical services and for drugs.  Demand pushes up prices. New technologies cost more initially at least.  If you increase the numbers of “insured”, and they go to the doctor for every perceived ache and illness, or seeking treatment for wrinkles, hair loss, breast enlargement, butt reduction or declining libido/virility, then costs are going to increase, as will waiting times unless you increase supply. Increase supply, and you’ll need to pay the new medical professionals and their operating costs.

How are you going to increase supply when you enact laws  and regulations that reduce the income and increase the expenses of doctors?  Didn’t Hillary want to limit admission to medical schools and control entry into specialty programs?

The bill is too large, too complex, and the time frame is too short. No Congressman is going to read it. They will depend on lies told by President Obama’s shills. We are going to be screwed, and the damage will be irreversible. There is no way out of entitlement programs once they are established.

Sign the petition and urge others to sign it.  Go to, enter your zip code, click the Federal link and tell your Representative and Senators to use all their health care proposals as anal suppositories.  Watch how they vote, and vote against them if they vote for those bills.
