If healthcare passes the socialist coup d'etat has advanced beyond the point of no return!
Dec 19, 2009 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 12/19/2009 11:28:56 AM PST by Jim Robinson

Let's face it FRiends, if the unconstitutional healthcare bill passes, the socialist coup d'etat will have advanced well beyond the point of no return!

There is nothing in the constitution that authorizes this illegal federal power-grab and plenty that forbids it. If the Obama/Reid/Pelosi Marxist attempted coup pulls this off without the people resisting to the hilt, then they'll have no restrictions whatsoever on implementing the rest of their Liberty killing Marxist agenda. America will be no more.

The whole idea of our constitution is to severely restrict the federal government to only its dozen and a half expressly listed enumerated powers and to guarantee and protect our unalienable individual rights as well as our sovereign states rights and republican form of government.

The constitution has not failed, the people have. When the government will not willingly restrain itself within its legal bounds, then its the duty of the people to enforce the constitution and restrain the government.

The constitution does not define our rights, it defines the limits on government. Our rights are granted by God not government, and government cannot take them away. Our government was established by and for us and was granted by us certain limited powers and only those limited powers. Our government serves at our pleasure to defend our nation and our rights. It does not RULE over us.

Obama is not a dictator. Reid, Pelosi, et al, are not our rulers. When they overstep their bounds to the degree they have, then they MUST be brought back down to reality.

It's time to jerk their constitutional chains taut!

It's time for US to enforce our Constitution and invoke our Bill of Rights!!

It's time to assemble for duty, for Liberty!!

The People need to remind Congress they are not the government. The people are the government and will have the final say! We need to remind ourselves and them of the following passage in Declaration of Independence:

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Well said, Jim Thompson. We need some serious organization from some true leaders. Those true leaders seems to be virtually nonexistent. Even the so-called “good guys” like Palin, DeMint, Bachmann, etc. aren’t going to put their necks on the line to really oppose this socialist takeover. It seems that they are too worried about their careers to take bold actions. I’m not very optimistic about our chances right now.

I fully agree.

But what of those who refused to vote for McCain, saying that having a Democrat in the White House would cause the Republicans to embrace Conservatism?

Frankly, I’m convinced they contributed to the mess we’re in!

The platform messages for retaking Congress in 2010 are:

1. Repeal this Healthcare power grab.

2. Re-instatement of the Bush Tax cuts set to expire in 2010.

3. Stop Cap 'n' Tax once and for all.

4. No Amnesty for Illegals.

FReegards!

For now it is the only viable option. But it takes more commitment than simply showing up at Tea-parties. We must deprive the looters of the fruit of our labor. Starve the beast.

Jim, I see no peaceful means to accomplish liberty. I’m ready to up and pack and go to Washington tonite if necessary.
Been emailing all day and of course all voicemail boxes are ‘conveniently full’.
I hate to think that we each are on our own.......’every man for themselves’ so to speak.

Keep your powder dry is no longer an option (imo). Please advise.

I remember driving down the Grapevine going to L.A. during the Clinton Impeachment, I saw that some idiot wrote on the back of his car that the Republicans were mounting a coup.

I said to myself, “really”?

What is happening NOW is a coup. I hope this is challenged at the Supreme Court or we’ll take matters into our own hands.

Jim,

As I understand it, the policy of this site is to strongly discourage talk of violence.
Just wondering how often the policies of this site are re-visited and re-considered.

Very true! This needs to be resisted, even after it passes!

The leftists are in the process of gaining control every aspect our lives through government controlled health care and controlling our individual use of energy via “cap & trade”.

When those two pieces of legislation are law, there won’t be much of anything that some bureaucrat won’t have control over when it comes to our personal lives. Everything from what kinds of foods we eat to the temperature of our homes.

That isn’t America, and it sure as hell isn’t a ‘free republic’.

Excellent post.

“Obama is not a dictator. Reid, Pelosi, et al, are not our rulers.”

And they are NOT more intelligent than we are.

The arrogance is what turns my disgust into loathing and wrath.

SO WHERE DOES THIS STAND? WHEN THEY VOTE ON IT, IS IT A DONE DEAL, OR DOES IT HAVE TO GO TO THE wHORs?

From the rapidly growing ranks of the tea party movement, I’d say the majority of the people are beginning to see the truth.

Our job is to keep hammering it home.

Have you EVER seen anything OVERTURNED? If we did have liberty loving congress people in office AND if they ‘invited’ the best and the brightest from the PRIVATE sector, those who don’t have an agenda, then yes, possibly it could be scaled back/overturned. Do you see that as a possibility? Really?

A coup d'état (pronounced /ˌkuːdeɪˈtɑː/, us dict: kōō′·dā·tâ′), or coup for short, is the sudden unconstitutional deposition of a legitimate government, usually by a small group of the existing state establishment — typically the military — to replace the deposed government with another, either civil or military. A coup d’état succeeds when the usurpers establish their legitimacy if the attacked government fail to thwart them, by allowing their (strategic, tactical, political) consolidation and then receiving the deposed government’s surrender; or the acquiescence of the populace and the non-participant military forces.

Be not that far from me, for trouble is near; haste Thee to help me. Blessed be the Lord my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight. My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me. O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.

2.) Live with it.

“The prospect of tyranny may not grab the headlines the way vivid stories of gun crime routinely do. But few saw the
Third Reich coming until it was too late. The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those
exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed — where the government refuses to stand for
reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to
enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once”.

Judge Alex Kozinski

I understand the reluctance to use violence. The problem is that we are being forced to move so far away from the founding principles of this country. We have e-mailed, sent faxes, demonstrated in Tea Parties and we are ignored and/or marginalized. The little people do not know what is in their best interest, you see. Something will have to give. I hope it does not come to violence, but Jefferson did say that the tree of liberty needs to be refreshed from time to time with the blood of tyrants. When the government of the people, by the people and for the people is stolen by those who know better than we do what is in our best interest, something will have to give.

IT will be overturned...

That would require the inverse of the current situation: filibuster proof conservative majorities in both the house and senate as well as a conservative president. With ACORN (under whatever new name) and the union political corruption machine on steroids, do you really see that happening?

The resistance may needs to move beyond the electoral process. Work less and stop paying heavy taxes. Ramp up the protests and the tyrants will reveal their true nature. It took a Boston massacre before there was a real Boston Tea Party.

Even the Looney Left (DU, Kos) oppose this mandatory health insurance bill, as PJ-Comix and I have been documenting on the DUmmie FUnnies. Of course, they oppose it because it is not socialist *enough*, but at least they hate it too!

It looks like the Repubs may be given another chance in 2010, in sort of a replay of the 1992/1994 scenario. Let's just hope we get some principled constitutional conservatives in there who will have the guts to stay the course and stem the tide.
