They Don't Care!

By Alan Caruba

It has finally dawned on me why President Obama and the Democrats in control of the Congress rushed to pass an unread “stimulus” bill “redistributing” billions of taxpayer dollars, have been voting bills out of committee to “reform” our national healthcare system, and another to impose a huge tax on all energy use.

They don’t care.

They don’t care that the polls clearly demonstrate that the majority of Americans oppose these and other initiatives.

They don’t care that the time-tested and time-proven way out of a recession is to cut taxes.

They don’t care that a similar healthcare program in Massachusetts did not reduce costs, that funding was slashed, and that rationing began.

They don’t care that there is absolutely no need for a bill to regulate carbon dioxide in order to “stop global warming” and that it is a huge tax increase on all Americans at a time when the Earth has been cooling for the last ten years.

They don’t care.

These are people like David Axelrod, the President’s advisor, who dismissed the hundreds of thousands of people who came to Washington, D.C. on September 12th to protest, saying, “They’re wrong.”

It is obvious that President Obama doesn’t care.

There is a complete disconnect between what he says and what he does. One could prepare a very long list of promises and statements made during his campaign and since his inauguration that reveal an astounding and frightening level of daily mendacity.

As for Congress, the rush to pass legislation such as healthcare reform that had been examined during the Clinton years—and rejected—is the single greatest indicator of how bad the outcome of this “new” effort will be. This is a bill being put together out of sight of the public because, if they knew its provisions, they would lay siege to Congress to stop it. Indeed, they already have. It won’t even be posted on the Internet for public review.

They don’t care.

It’s the same attitude that was demonstrated by the Nobel Prize committee that awarded Obama its Peace Prize barely two weeks after he was inaugurated, announcing it to a stunned world months later when it was apparent to everyone that he had done nothing to earn what was formerly one of the highest international accolades.

They don’t care.

The systematic efforts to extend control over all the land and all the waters of the United States through government agencies such as the EPA, the Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Corp of Engineers runs counter to the Constitutional Amendment protecting the sacredness of private property.

They don’t care.

It is increasingly evident that President Obama may, in fact, not be a natural born citizen of the United States as required by the Constitution to hold the office. Far too many essential documents have been withheld from public review to not legitimately question this fundamental issue of legal authority. A Democrat Congress will not take this up, but the courts must.

I am reminded that the Declaration of Independence was a long list of grievances set forth by Thomas Jefferson who wrote “when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them (the People) under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government and to provide such new guards for their future security.”

Barring a complete change of power in Congress in next year’s midterm elections, it
is beginning to look like a new Declaration will have to be written as this administration and this Congress continue to run roughshod over the will of the People to bring about their enslavement and the destruction of the nation.

They don’t care!

I wish it were just a simple matter of not caring, or being so self-serving that the public's opinion doesn't concern them, but sadly, I fear it goes way deeper than that. I'm convinced that they are willfully trying to destroy our country and our way of life before we can do anything to stop them. I would have never even imagined that anyone who calls America home could want to destroy her. I always thought that most Americans loved this country, and would do anything to protect her and our way of life. However, after reading the writings of some of these people, you have to be pretty dense not to see their philosophies for what they are. For whatever reason, whether it be financial gain, hunger for power, or misplaced guilt for our success as a nation, what they are doing is a blatant attempt to destroy our economy, overthrow our Republic, and reduce us to a third world country.

We may not be able to stop them before they do significant damage, but rest assured, we are a bunch of pretty tough customers. The list of traitors involved in this scheme is growing longer by the day, but rest assured, we have a keen interest in keeping track of who these people are. If they continue their assault on America, at some point, there is going to be a backlash. When that day comes, I wouldn't want MY name to be on that list ...

There are still millions out there supporting Obama because he sounds good, or looks good, and he's not Bush!

Of course they are clueless to the damage being inflicted upon their futures by this man and his partners in crime.

Clearly there is ample time to get real reform in health care debated and worked out in ways that could actually improve it- but this is not what the lefts agenda calls for.

The control of medicine has always been sought by the left as a tool to institutionalize power over the individual by the government.

The invention of a need for global environmental protection provides the left with the perfect opportunity to expand the carrot and stick control over every business.

I have been using the analogy of either or both, as stakes aimed directly over the heart of capitalism and American freedom and liberty.

The people that are aware can see this grave threat easily, but where are the patriots in Congress? They have not made the case that needs to be made. The threat is nothing short of the end of our American way of life and the beginning of a downward and unrecoverable spiral into the socialism disaster.
Where are the real leaders?
What are they waiting for?
Obama has proven he is indeed the radical we suspected he was, and wishes to transform America into something unrecognizable.

His usurpation of the job is very apparent too, most likely not eligible because he is not a natural born Citizen as the Constitution requires - and our congress is complicit, our courts thus far refusing to hear the merits of the debate.

What is happening to our dear country?

You are right, Mr Caruba.
We are all in strife.

Have a look at what Lord Monckton says here.
This is all over the 'blogs but will it help?

Alan, how can you be so callous as to posit that our friends in Washington don't care? Why, to the contrary, they have allocated $2.3 million dollars in federal economic stimulus funds to eight cosmetology and masseuse schools in Tampa Bay, Fl.
This generous allocation of tax dollars, (in violation of the Constitution), was doled out despite the fact that hair salons/nail salons/masseuse parlors are experiencing a record loss of business and subsequently record unemployment.
What's not to like about such generous folks?

From the 'Gipper' via the Patriot Post
"You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man's age-old dream -- the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order -- or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism. Regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would sacrifice freedom for security have embarked on this downward path. Plutarch warned, 'The real destroyer of the liberties of the people is he who spreads among them bounties, donations and benefits.' The Founding Fathers knew a government can't control the economy without controlling people. And they knew when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. So we have come to a time for choosing." --Ronald Reagan

LibertyforUSA ... you ask where all the Patriots are in government ...I'm sorry to say they are few and far between. They've all become infected with the same disease ... An overwhelming greed, and a thirst for power that overrides any patriotism they may have had. These days, short-sighted thinking and lust for money and power prevail over patriotism and love-of-country. They all think they can grab their chunk of the pie and run before anyone will notice. I have news for them. The legacy they leave behind will follow them for the rest of their lives ...

They don't care because they believe they are right and the rest are wrong. They are morally correct, and the rest is evil. They know the facts, and the rest is stupid and ignorant. They are noble and the rest is "redneck". They are the elite, and the rest is "clinging to guns and religion".
I'm from Europe, and I have met these kind of people my entire life and career: at the Universities, in the big companies, in government, the courts et cetera. I have heard them say to me: "if that is the result of democracy, then democracy has to be abolished". It's the lefist mentalilty that is rampant throughout our education system, the media and the big business, and now it finally has arrived in the White House. You are reaping what you have allowed to be sown for decades!
