The liberals are declaring a war, a call to action to stop us, the conservative, in having our voice’s heard. According to one liberal blogthey have a post up titled, “The Guns of August: A Call to Arms for Progressives and Obama Activists” The intent is to stop us on our fight to end this administration’s attempt to change our health-care and our way of life as we “used” to know it. Author, Richard Kirsch states,
We are already seeing the violent excesses of the right. They hung freshman Maryland Congressman Frank Kratovil in effigy, painted Texas Rep. Lloyd Doggett as a devil with horns, and screamed insults at HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. [Edit: Updated with a better link here, thanks Jane. -- Jason Rosenbaum] This is an angry minority, bitter about an America that they don’t recognize, led by a man that doesn’t look like them.
These are the same crazies that applauded calls to violence last fall at Sarah Palin rallies and made a hero of Joe the Plumber. But remember, as the public began to understand what the far right-wingers really stood for, it didn’t take long for a great majority of the electorate to write them off.
But since health care won’t be decided at the popular ballot box, we can’t just wait for the public to recognize the reality behind this nutty minority. There are two prizes in the battle at hand – the national press narrative and Congress’ support. We have to win the press war by making it clear that shouts of “socialized medicine” and “government health care” are from a mob on the fringe of American politics. And we need to be sure that wavering Democrats in Congress see that there is strong popular support for health care reform.
Health Care for America Nowis joining with progressive groups throughout the country to out-gun the tea-baggers in August. Members of Congress are spending their time at home trying to gauge public support for reform before returning to Washington after Labor Day. It will be a contest all month long, and we have to take it on with all the urgency that the historical task at hand demands.
He is clearly calling for more division of this country, how can this be effective? The administration while campaigning and in various speeches speaks of bi- partisanship, but we have yet to witness any of this. It is clear that it is his is way or else. This country was founded upon the principles as layed out by the preamble of Our Constitution that states….
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America
Apparently the author has either dismissed or failed to see the outrage regarding this proposed reform of our health-care. The dissent isn’t limited to to those only on the “right” but many registered democrats are equally against this plan as well. Seniors are seen attending meetings with AARP and we have witnessed their concerns and a call to cancel memberships.
So fellow Patriots I am calling upon you to take a stand, don’t become a victim of intimidation. We have our beloved Constitution behind us. We can make a difference and we can take our Country back
