All across America as our Congress takes a break during their August recess; the Democrats are getting a rude awakening from their constituents. It seems that the polls showing that most Americans don’t want Obama’s health care reform are being proven to be very accurate. Americans don’t want government run health care. They don’t want a bureaucrat to come between them and their doctor. They don’t like the fact that the Democratically controlled Congress is spending our country into oblivion. But most of all, they don’t like the fact that their elected representatives vote in lock step with the far left element of the Democratic Party.
But they aren’t the only ones who don’t like things. The Democrats don’t like being disagreed with. They don’t like their constituents telling them how to vote. I think they have forgotten that “We the People” is more than just a bumper sticker slogan. It is the bedrock this country was founded on; the ability for the citizenry to speak out and voice their displeasure with their Government.
Last September Barack Obama said the following to that very same citizenry: “”I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face.” He said this when he wanted their help. He wanted “We the People” to get in people’s faces and make a change. Now his very own party, the Democratic party is saying this about those very same citizens: “The Republicans and their allied groups – desperate after losing two consecutive elections and every major policy fight on Capitol Hill – are inciting angry mobs of a small number of rabid right wing extremists funded by K Street Lobbyists to disrupt thoughtful discussions about the future of health care in America taking place in Congressional Districts across the country.” And they go on with, “…these mobs of extremists are not interested in having a thoughtful discussion about the issues – but like some Republican leaders have said – they are interested in ‘breaking’ the President and destroying his Presidency.”
So we have on one hand Obama saying he wants people to get involved, get into people’s faces to make a change. And on the other hand, when those same tactics are working against his agenda, Obama says, “This is the moment our movement was built for…That’s why Organizing for America is putting together thousands of events this month where you can reach out to neighbors, show your support, and make certain your members of Congress know that you’re counting on them to act. But these canvasses, town halls, and gatherings only make a difference if you turn up to knock on doors, share your views, and show your support. So here’s what I need from you: Can you commit to join at least one event in your community this month?”
So which is it Mr. President? Do you want your citizens to get involved and get in people’s faces to make changes? Or do you not want them to? Are they everyday Americans voicing their opinions, exercising their most fundamental American right? Or are they K-Street Lobbyists and angry mobs? I would say this to our Pretender-in-Chief, if you think that you can bully the American people into submission, you have another think coming because “We the People” are tired of your agenda. “We the People” are tired of your incessant spending. “We the People” are getting fed up with our elected officials thinking they are the ruling class in this country. But mostly Mr. Obama, “We the People” are mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore. It is time you and the rest of those who “We the People” voted for and sent to Washington D.C. remembered who your boss is. It is “We the People”
