Obamacare is like an arranged marriage. One person wants the relationship while the other has been given no choice. I remember when Barack Obama was a candidate and he promised he would have a transparent administration. I also recollect Obama saying he would give Americans a chance to view bills before they are passed into law on C-span. Last time I checked, neither of those two examples ever happened.
Instead we are now in the hands of our Supreme Court who will be hearing the case next week and we have to hope that this 2,000+ page monstrosity will be deemed unconstitutional. Otherwise the only other option is for Republicans to show up in record numbers to make the WH and Congress a republican majority.
We are at crossroads as a nation. A place where the makers are being outnumbered by the takers. A place that Obama has taken us with his failed policies. It’s time to grow up Mr. President and take ownership of your actions for the past 3+ years. It’s more than disingenuous to suggest Bush is still responsible for many of your choices you’ve made either in who you’ve appointed or your executive orders you have signed.
America has a choice to make come November 6, 2012 to divorce ourselves from this administration. I am sure we can gain forgiveness for this action because it truly seems that if we have four more years of this relationship, then our great country will no longer exist.
There is a movement afoot. It is one that intends to end the conservative voice on radio. It began before the push to take Limbaugh off the air after his comments on Sandra Fluke (she is no victim by the way, just a plant by the left) and has gained traction since. If we left it up to Pelosi, Waters, Reid and the other mindless lefty politicians there would only be the progressive agenda on radio and our television.
This is serious people. Even if you don’t agree with any position a conservative makes, you should be wary of anyone trying to silence free speech. When Limbaugh opened his mouth and inserted his foot (as he even admits he did) what he did was excite the extreme base of the left wing party. People who never listen to his show started attacking the companies who advertise on his program. What is humorous is as many lefties posted shouting “off with his head”, there were Rush supporters touting they would end their business with the company if they pulled their advertising and squelch free speech. I was one of those conservatives.
I canceled my subscription for automatic renewal with Carbonite effective October 2012. I also will no longer do business with Pro Flowers. I won’t give Sleep Number my money either. In addition, my husband and I made the decision to cancel HBO effective immediately w/ Direct TV after we saw the movie Game Change. As conservatives we should be furious with this hatchet job on Sarah Palin. Not only are they attacking conservative values with this movie, they are also attacking the Christian faith. I can’t in good conscious send my company to any company that takes a stand against a base no matter if I agreed with them or not.
There is a bit of good news in all of this. Conservatives are beginning to take notice of the attacks by the left. More and more I see people canceling services with these left wing companies and it is great to see. I truly believe that if we don’t take notice and fight back with our voice we will watch our great country turn into a socialist nation and be worse off than Greece. We must take pride in our values and Christian faith. We also must pray. Don’t be afraid to stand up for what you believe! Don’t be silenced because you don’t like negative remarks! Press on! Give your voice a chance to change the environment! It can happen if we all join together! Come on!
Have we all just gone off the deep end here? To now suggest that a 30 – year old law student from Georgetown University is somehow a victim because she and other’s like her political affiliation want me and you to pay for her contraceptive? Tell me again how that would classify a person as a victim? And President Obama has called her personally to discuss this issue? You are kidding me right?
Ms. Fluke’s purpose of attending Georgetown University can not certainly be attributed to the fact she wanted free healthcare can it? I mean she had to know it was a catholic university if she is smart enough to be taking law classes right? So why is she and other women on her campus looking for free birth control all of a sudden? Was it promised when she became a student at Georgetown?
We have all these major and global issues at hand and the liberal media and the POTUS is now making this Sandra Fluke a martyr for a cause? What cause exactly? Ms. Fluke and women is general can go to any Planned Parenthood, OBGYN or county health department and pick up contraceptive. No one is stopping them from doing this right? I mean, sure you may have to pay something for it but so what! You can’t walk into a grocery store, pick up items you need and then go ask someone else to pay for it can you?
The democrats have taken the contraceptive issue brought about by the Obamacare nightmare and turned what is a fight for religious freedom and is trying to make it an assault on women’s health. They are now going after Rush Limbaugh and other conservatives because they rightly described this smoke screen and Sandra Fluke for what it really is and now they have been labeled as a threat to women? This is just crazy!
Look, here is the bottom line for me. I am a woman who currently takes contraceptive myself for health reasons not birth control. My OBGYN felt it was a viable option for me to treat my situation. I pay for this every month and have for many years OUT OF MY OWN POCKET! I don’t expect my neighbor, the pharmacist or Joe Blow off the street to pay for my monthly pack of pills. I don’t want to have to pay for Sandra Fluke or any other woman’s contraceptive. Period. No matter what the use is for I don’t want to pay for it. I am tired of the mentality that everyone should pay for someone else’s views, choices or lifestyle! If the Democrats like Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, President Obama or anyone else want to chip in and help pay for Ms. Fluke and other’s then make a donation center and do so, otherwise give it a rest!
