If They Pass The Health Care Bill, What Then?

Well, now we wait. The suspense is killing me. They say they don’t have enough votes. Maybe they do have enough votes. Who cares? Most in this country care and most don’t want it. Are we going to wake some morning to find a national health care bill passed and signed by the President? That seems to be the way this congress works, backroom deals, middle of the night meetings and on and on as though they know America doesn't want this hideous bill but they keep attempting to jam it down our throats.
Okay, let’s just say they have the votes and they pass this bill, what then? Does the world come to an end? Will there be a revolt? Will the American majority come together and think of a way to just piss the hell out of its government? Yea, I think that’s what will happen.
If you’re furious with the government over a bill like this, what would you do to get their attention, since for the past year they have continually looked the other way? How do you get their attention? National strike, hunger strike, drive with your lights on, don’t pay your taxes, have more tea parties, lie down In the streets and stop traffic, boycott the government in some way? You know it’s a long way to Election Day in November and even then who knows what will happen. I know that’s not going to be enough for many of you patriots out there. So what’ll it be? Name your poison. Whatever we decide to do it has to be big, nonviolent and lawful. Maybe we should start looking into the nonviolent peaceful resistance movements led by Martin Luther King and Gandhi. So let’s crack open those history books or just Google the techniques used by these great resistance leaders.
I for one don’t think a desperate act such as this should be left unanswered. The American people will have to do something. There will be a need to do something so let’s not lose our cool by doing something foolish. It’s time for plan B so if you have the time please leave your thoughts as a comment.
Throwing tea overboard in Boston Harbor was our forefathers’ idea of resistance. What say you in the year 2010?

If it can be proven that the Constitution of the United States is not being upheld, there is a process the citizenry can take to impeach.

Article by Larry Johnson:
I learned over the weekend why the Republicans who have seen the tape of Michelle Obama ranting about “whitey” describe it as “STUNNING.” I have not seen it but I have heard from five separate sources who have spoken directly with people who have seen the tape. It features Michelle Obama and Louis Farrakhan. They are sitting on a panel at Jeremiah Wright’s Church when Michelle makes her intemperate remarks. Whoops!! When that image comes out it will enter the politcal ads hall of fame. It will be right up there with the little girl plucking daisy petals in the famous 1964 ad LBJ used against Barry Goldwater.

Barack may have quit his church but his religious problems are not over. Barack Obama has a Nation of Islam problem that will receive more attention in the coming days. Before Barack came on the scene, THE MAN in his political district was Louis Farrakhan. No one could take Alice Palmer’s seat without Farrakhan’s blessing. No one. I do not fault Barack Obama for seeking out the blessing of Farrakhan, but the story of what was done behind the scenes to get rid of Barack’s predecessor—Alice Palmer—has not been told. A knowledgeable source tells me that Tony Rezko played a direct role in this feat. And Rezko has been tight with Farrakhan.

It also should come as no surprise that Barack hired two members of the Nation of Islam to work on his staff—Jennifer Mason and Cynthia K. Miller. (And no, I am not merely recycling info initially reported by Debbie Schlussel. I have two independent Chicago sources for this info.) If Jeremiah Wright and Michael Pfleger had kept their yaps buttoned none of this would mean much. But the fact that both men have been—until scrubbed from the website in recent weeks—listed as spiritual advisors to Barack Obama and also are very close to Louis Farrakhan, forces the question about Barack’s faith and beliefs.

In probing those matters we begin to understand that the Nation of Islam has been a critical component of Barack Obama’s base of support. And, I am told, Louis Farrakhan has been careful to use Tony Rezko as the intermediary in his relationship with Barack. This is not guilt by association, this is guilt because of actual relationship. Farrakhan, Wright, and Pfleger are each on tape in various settings spewing the most vile racists garbage in the guise of preaching. Barack Obama, up to this point, has tried to pretend he had no idea that these men had these thoughts or said these things.

NONSENSE!! He knew and he knows. And the gig will be up when the Michelle tape hits the airwaves. One source described how this tape was acquired. Let’s just say that one of the republican candidates who is no longer in the race, but had a dandy oppo research capability, uncovered this gem. If Republican poohbahs have their way the tape will remain on ice until October. But when it comes out, Barack will be permanently branded with the Nation of Islam. That’s not a winning platform in November. And Barack’s bundlers understand this threat. I also have learned some major financial backers are asking the Barack team about the tape and are being stonewalled. It is a wild card in the political campaign that has not yet played out.

Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of currently serving military, reserves, National Guard, peace officers, fire-fighters, and veterans who swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic … and meant it. We won’t “just follow orders.”
1. We will NOT obey any order to disarm the American people.
2. We will NOT obey any order to conduct warrantless searches of the American people, their homes, vehicles, papers, or effects -- such as warrantless house-to house searches for weapons or persons.
3. We will NOT obey any order to detain American citizens as “unlawful enemy combatants” or to subject them to trial by military tribunal.
4. We will NOT obey orders to impose martial law or a “state of emergency” on a state, or to enter with force into a state, without the express consent and invitation of that state’s legislature and governor.
5. We will NOT obey orders to invade and subjugate any state that asserts its sovereignty and declares the national government to be in violation of the compact by which that state entered the Union.
6. We will NOT obey any order to blockade American cities, thus turning them into giant concentration camps.
7. We will NOT obey any order to force American citizens into any form of detention camps under any pretext.
8. We will NOT obey orders to assist or support the use of any foreign troops on U.S. soil against the American people to “keep the peace” or to “maintain control” during any emergency, or under any other pretext. We will consider such use of foreign troops against our people to be an invasion and an act of war.
9. We will NOT obey any orders to confiscate the property of the American people, including food and other essential supplies, under any emergency pretext whatsoever.

10. We will NOT obey any orders which infringe on the right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances.

You're not going to get Obama's attention. He doesn't give a shit what the people want. He has his agenda and will trample over anyone who gets in his way. Have you noticed the obstinate, stern, unwavering, non-negotiable attitude he's developed lately? It's as though the President has developed a real dislike for the American citizenry. Kind of an awkward position for all of us, wouldn't you agree?

Yes I've noticed. That's what scares me the most.

"Reclaiming lost liberties and reassigning the national government to its proper limited role is a formidable challenge. Undoing eighty years of liberal damage to freedom won't come easily or quickly. Returning the nation to the Founders' intent, though, can come eventually through the education, persuasion, and mobilization of the people. Since the tumultuous 1960s, with Goldwater's candidacy and Reagan's ascendancy, Americans have been awakening in ever-larger numbers to the threats to liberty. It's through the people, and not nullification or other extra-constitutional means, that the nation will experience its rebirth of freedom."
