Senator Tom Coburn: "This vote is indeed historic. This Congress will be remembered for its arrogance, corruption and stupidity. In the year of 2009, a Congress ignored the coming economic storm and impending bandruptcy of our entitlement programs and embarked on an ideological crusade to bring our nation as close to single-payer, government-run health care as possible. If this bill becomes law, future generations will rue this day and I will do everything in my power to work toward its repeal. THIS BILL WILL RATION CARE, CUT MEDICARE, INCREASE PREMIUMS, FUND ABORTION AND BURY OUR CHILDREN IN DEBT."
"This process was not compromise. This process was corruption...."
While the five men wanted to plead guilty in a military commission earlier this year to hasten their executions, sources now say that the detainees favor participating in a full-scale federal trial to air their grievances and expose their treatment while held by the CIA at secret prisons.

I know of few people who are happy with the president we have today, and they are either skulls full of mush or dyed in the wool Democrats that would never change no matter what, you know the ones that I mean . . . 'my parents were Democrats so I am a Democrat.' Don't confuse them with facts.
Since we are in general agreement that Obama is really, really bad for our nation, we must ask ourselves "How did this come to pass?" There is even still a question of his place of birth, and therefore his legality to become president of these United States.
How could all of this happen? Were we asleep? Well, some of us certainly were, and that's a fact. Far too many people, citizens of these United States take their right to vote with a very large grain of salt. They neither bother to inform themselves of the facts and the background of those that are running for political office, nor do they really care.
The rest of us have just lacked really good leadership. Senator McCain is a nice man, but hardly presidential material. So how did Barack Obama garner so much support and continue to be considered 'the savior' of our nation, even to 'winning' a Nobel Peace Prize?
The answer to this is relatively simple . . . the media . . . both national and local, have failed to do their job. Even worse, for a media that is 'supposed' to report the news, they have taken sides and covered, nay, obliterated, all that is wanting in Obama's background while touting him as the 'new messiah' bringing change to our nation.
Well we all know how readership and trust in the media has fallen to an all time low. Many newspapers, magazines, TV stations, et al, are going bankrupt for lack of circulation and therefore are losing huge amounts of advertising money.
The 'retribution' is coming a bit late for our country however. Personally I have absolutely no faith in the media of the United States any longer, with a few exceptions such as FOX News and a handful of 'right wing' radio and TV hosts who, in spite of their naysayers, are telling it like it is.
I learned back in the days of Richard Nixon that you do not listen to what they say, you watch what they do, and I was a registered Republican at the time. I may be dumb, but I'm not stupid. The same can be said currently for the person that is living in our White House, we must watch what he is doing, not listening to what he is saying.
I am looking forward to voting in 2010. I am going to make a point of voting for NO incumbent, regardless of party. Our problems now transcend party lines. The Democrats have become extreme left wing socialists and the Republicans are weak and seem to have lost their way.
As a citizen, and a veteran of the U.S. Army I will NOT waste my vote by not voting, but I am prepared to make a statement in how I vote. Won't you all join me? It is not too late to take back our country, but it WILL be an uphill fight. The United States of America are certainly worth fighting for so let us get out and do our utmost in her time of need.
As always, feel free to disagree with me about any or all of what I have just stated.

Let me get this straight....there are no Federal or state laws that these bribes have violated, but there will be a law that I could go to jail if I don't buy their insurance? What is horribly wrong with this picture?

-FT.com / Senate Democrats defend backroom deals
-Seedy Chicago Politics Passed Health Care Bill
-Sen. Whitehouse: foes of health care bill are birthers, right-wing militias, aryan groups - Water Cooler - Washington Times
so which are you? Militia? White Supremacist? Can't be just a good hardworking, taxpaying, law abiding citizen and be against a fascist bill, right?

The voters of Oklahoma will have the opportunity to preserve the existing health care system in Oklahoma under legislation sought by three state legislators. State Reps. Mike Ritze and Mike Reynolds and state Sen. Randy Brogdon announced today that they will file legislation enacting the “Freedom of Healthcare Choice Act,” allowing voters to preserve the existing healthcare system in Oklahoma regardless of congressional action at the federal level.

Note some of the very interesting comments in the comment section.
*hat tip to CJ's Corner
.'....America stands at the brink of a Marxist abyss because Americans have elected a majority of officials who do not honor the Constitution, who do not respect the value of individual freedom, who crave personal power and perks more than the prosperity produced by free people operating a free market.....'
'Tis the week before Christmas and all through the land, not a freedom is safe from Obama's hand.
Bankers, bewildered, before him now bow, while auto-makers, thankful, praise his cash cow.
With energy and health care nearing control, his grasp on the nation is as he foretold.
The people are stirred by his escapades, and are somewhat shocked by the history they made.
Obama is not what he promised to be; he brings, instead, tyranny.'

".....With the passage of the ObamaCare Death Plan—vote slated Monday—the
Executive and Legislative branches of the US government will now OWN our bodies and will determine what we may and may not do with them, eat and whether or not many of us will even be allowed to live.
Note: If you didn’t vote for or don’t plan to vote for the tyrant next time, your life and the lives of your loved ones may very well be on the line. And don’t forget, Obama has no intention of increasing jobs in the private sector or even getting yours back for you. A poorer, smaller, less-educated and “victimized” population is more easily dominated and controlled by its masters......"
Before we even catch your breath from the dangerous and tyrannical healthcare bill passes the Senate, they will hit us with Amnesty. We are witnessing a complete hijacking and takeover of the US Govt, a dismantling of our system and the nullification of the US Constitution. I hope you are all very happy with the "hope & change". This is a change alright. A change from being Americans to becoming Cubans.
Patriots, The United States Senate and House of Representatives are no longer under the control of sane leadership. The two houses of congress are pursuing a policy of authoritarian, illegal legislating, completely ignoring the will of "we the people" and constitutional law.
Politicians in both the legislative and executive branches are purposefully violating the United States Constitution, enacting legislation destructive to Founding Father principles, and arrogantly daring the American people to do anything about it...it's a display of "in your face" attitude of superiority and willful disobedience to the United States Constitution.
Demonstrated bribery the US Senate leadership is pursuing is equaled only by totalitarian regimes America has considered enemies and fought wars against in past decades.
The commitment of billions of tax-payer funds to buy votes from other Senators for their supporting the healthcare bill is despicable at best, illegal on it's face, and cannot stand.
Freedom and liberty sways dangerously in the balance...what additional evidence is needed to rise up and stop the madness in Washington, D.C.?
