Calling all "moderates"...

I wrote the following in response to so linguini spined moderate who said she basically didn't care one way or the other on the healthcare issue, but said, "From my own point of view: Undecided voters are watching, particularly young ones. There is nothing 'interesting' or 'inspiring' about fits of rage. The 'screaming mobs' are now inextricably associated in the public mind with 'Conservatives'


I have no time for moderates, especially on the healthcare reform issue. I do not look at it (or any issue) from Democrat/Republican point of view. I look at things my government does as either expanding our liberties, as our founding fathers envisioned, or infringing on our liberties, which the government excels at as our founding fathers predicted they would.

I know this: If the government (this one or some future one) takes over healthcare, all pretense of liberty is destroyed. You cannot have freedom and liberty if you depend on the government for your health. They will use "healthcare" as an ever expanding reason to slither their way into your formerly great American life. Their tentacles will reach into your refrigerator and cupboards by telling what you can & cannot eat (too keep healthcare costs down – lower the obesity “crisis”); they will slime their way into bedroom (by telling you how many children you can & cannot have); they will infiltrate your mind by telling what is & isn’t good for you to read, watch or listen to (no mental healthcare coverage for you!)

Our founding fathers warned us of this day and, in fact gave us the perfect verbiage to describe what to do when this happens to us: "That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."

We may not be there yet, but we are getting closer everyday this government exists....
