Your recent vote on the healthcare bill will go down in history. In fact, all sixty of you will go down in historical fashion. You will lose re‐election bids. You will become the scourge of freedom loving Americans across the nation. In the long‐run, history will anoint you as villains that attempted to sack free enterprise in America and doomed your own constituents to substandard healthcare at premium cost. All under the guise of putting a few people that do not have coverage on insurance, you have created an untenable entitlement. It will do the precise opposite of what you have projected. Costs will increase. People will not be covered. Many will opt‐out and drop out by choice in protest. Refuseniks. The extent of your damage remains to be seen, but damage it will be. Look at just a few examples of big government largesse in America.
In the beginning, Social Security was supposed to provide an incentive for older persons to retire toaccommodate an underemployed workforce in the face of the Great Depression. It was never meant to be an identification process, and in fact, that aspect was much debated. Look at what it has become and how expensive it is now. There is no real “fund” you continue to lie about that fact too. Those funds hit the general account and are gone. What percentage of our annual budget is Social Security now compared to what the projections were back in the 30’s, 50’s 70’s?
Medicare has similar history. It has expanded and become so badly operated that it will be bankrupt before Social Security. Except that there needs to be a “fund” to bankrupt, you continue to lie about that too, and those collected funds get dumped into the general account and spent. Where does this stop?
The stimulus package authorized and passed to supposedly prevent unemployment from rising past 8%. That was the plan and the projection. How’s that working out for you? We are now at 10% unemployment and that is probably low. Do you see a trend here? Those funds, for “shovel‐ready” projects that never existed, have not been developed or approved, are further expenditure of taxpayers (i.e., my) money for unrealistic and fantastical pie‐in‐the‐sky programs. No real infrastructure repair or rebuild. Paying bureaucrats salaries in Sacramento is not a “shovel‐ready” project.
Every time your group of “do‐gooders” with supposed big hearts and obviously empty heads enter into any semblance of power all hell breaks loose because you can’t control yourselves. “Change” to you means everything that we as a nation have done yesterday and do today is wrong, broken, corrupt and must be stopped or changed fundamentally. Perhaps it is because none of you have ever done anything “real” in your life, like held or created a job, paid an employee from your own business efforts or even tried to understand real fundamental economics, and not the Keynesian garbage you deal with in Washington. Or maybe it is due to the mental disorder called liberalism. In either case, you fail to recognize the United States of America did not become the greatest country in the world by oppressing its achievers and performers with Third World Tinpot Socialist programs and tactics. Of course, you do not believe in American exceptionalism. You believe in a “bad” America. The imperialist, racist, capitalist pig oppressive America. “Bad, bad America—be like France or Sweden”.
Yes, congratulations on your diligent effort to royally screw up America and end freedom as we know it. You have played an important role in planting the seed of the next great conflagration. There is an imminent struggle brewing between freedom‐loving Americans and the “sheeple” I call Democrats and their voters. I know which side I am on. Thank you for making it so easy to figure out which side you are on. Like lemmings over a cliff, you are following the wrong lead dog. Always have, and you always will.
