Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.) announced Monday that he will seek to bring a health-care bill to the Senate floor that includes a government insurance plan, a major reversal from just two weeks ago, when Reid was leaning against the idea. – Washington Post
Reid defended this “new” bill by saying:
“I believe that a public option can achieve the goal of bringing meaningful reform to our broken system. It will protect consumers, keep insurers honest and ensure competition,” Reid said.
My main response to this is; who is to keep the government “honest”? Besides that it is not the purpose of the government to provide health care to its citizens. Though I oppose all forms of government health care the only legal form of government health care is government health care done by the state. The tenth amendment to the constitution states:
“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
The power to create government health care was not delegated to the federal government and was not prohibited to the state government. So, that means that it is up to the states and the people what to do about health care. This IS NOT an issue that involves the federal government.
The time has come again for Americans to stand up against government health care once again. We must not let the Senators in Washington believe that we have grown weary of this issue. We must stand up against the tyranny of government health care.
Helen Glover, who is a host of a Rhode Island radio station, was on a tea party float in the Bristol Fourth of July Parade. Apparently they tea party float was kicked out of the parade because they had people out handing out pocket US Constitutions! Later they were told “Don’t even bother wasting the stamp for an application next year.” They were kicked out for life because they were handing out pocket constitutions. I hope that we as Americans can stand up to this injustice and show our government that we are stronger than them. America was rally together to restore our FREEDOM!

Why are we so focused on Iran right now instead of keeping our government on the right track. Foundingbloggers.com on their front page had eight articles on Iran and seven on America one of which is Michael Jackson dying! I admit that Iran is a huge issue, but it is also a cover-up that people are using to get us to fight over Iran instead of Government Health Care, Paygo, and cap and trade! America, we need to wake up and see the lie within our government. We need to wake up to the real issues. Gay Rights, isn’t a real issue, Abortion isn’t a real issue, Gun Control isn’t a real issue. The real issue is Communism/Socialism/Fascism Vs. Republic/Founding Fathers. We need to focus on getting new people into Congress, we need to get Founding Father Constitutionalists, not Democrats, not Republicans. We need good strong, sturdy, people whom we as the people can trust. America wake up and see the real issues.
“Law is by no means confined to his own department … It has acted in direct opposition to its proper end; it has been employed in annihilating that justice which it ought to have established, in effacing amongst Rights, that limit which was its true mission to respect; it has placed the collective force in the service of those who wish to traffic, without risk, and without scruple, in the persons, the liberty, and the property of others; it has converted plunder into a right.”

We in this “great nation” of America are beginning to see problems that are destroying the great government that our Founding Fathers created. Our Founding Fathers had spent months arguing, writing, and researching the great governments of the world so that they could create the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! The GREATEST and STRONGEST Nation ever to be built upon this earth and we are PERVERTING THAT LAW. The Constitution has become the laughing stock of the world. Every president since FDR, besides Ronald Reagan, have worked towards the destruction of our nation and our Constitution. It is now our time to act! We must stand up or forever hold our peace. America WAKE UP!

I believe that another problem with public schooling is that it doesn’t stress the Constitution. This one of the problems with today’s youth. They do not know what the Constitution says and thus do not know the rights that are granted to them within the Constitution. I have tried many different tacts to try to get teenagers to read the Constitution, and most of the time I fail. I have gotten responses like, “It’s boring” “I don’t need to read it” “I’m not going into law” “I don’t have time” etc. I find these responses very scary. The youth of our nation, the future politicians, do not care that much for the Constitution.
I would like to stress to all of you the extreme importance of the Constitution, and the importance that we all know what the Consitution says, and what it is about.
Thanks you for your time,
