Skip to comments.The Democrat Party is declaring War on the American People
Posted on 03/20/2010 1:41:05 PM PDT by Bob Eimiller
This massively unpopular Health Care Monstrosity is being slammed through Congress for one reason... and the reason is not compassion for the poor. This bloodless "attack" is the major offensive in an obvious ideological war to force the American people into irreversable socialism.
The will of the people be damned. The Obama Doctrine is as Barack Obama has stated during his presidential campaign... to transform America. We are witnessing the overthrow of our political system and the destruction of our 234 year way of life.
Our country has fought numerous wars to protect our liberty. Virtual "rivers" of blood have been shed for over two centuries by American Patriots willing to sacrifice their lives for our freedom. The Memorial Day holiday was instituted specifically to honor those who made the supreme sacrifice for our protection... Future Memorial Days will ring hollow after Sunday if this odious bill is jammed through and shoved down our throats.
I truly believe America is again at war and the Democrat Party is the enemy. A democratic republic means specifically that the will of the people is paramount. Totalitarianism deems a central and all powerful federal government dictates to the people.
I believe Sunday is the tipping point. Are we going to be free? Or are we going to do what may be necessary. Patrick Henry said it best... Read your history books... the few that are left and haven't been rewritten.
The Democrat party is not the whole enemy. The enemy is government in all of its natural-rights-violating forms. The Democrats are the ones in control now and the party of Marx.
If the government were restricted to its constitutionally enumerated jobs, there would be no “health care reform” bill.
You need to examine your life and see how you are addicted to the socialism crack and excise it from your life.
For instance: Government schools? Militarized police to fight the “war on drugs”? Do you support “assault weapons” bans? Do you support bans on full-auto guns? Do you support the concept of marriage licenses?
Our future appears dim, what are we going to do about it?
For the time being register as a Democrat. As long as they contol healthcare and have access to our political preference, I’m taking no chances.
well, the american people (plus such non-americans, dead people, farm animals, and so on as voted) elected the antichrist and his minions — what do you expect?
We will reverse it or die! What’s so hard to understand? We certainly can’t just bend over and smile.
The Democrat Party declared war on the American People years ago
War on us, war on our allies around the world.
Absolutely... The enemy is not restricted by the Constitution. The party in power has erased the Constitution. That is basically the premise of my statement.
If our Constitution is being shredded from within what would you call it... I call it an act of war.
Why do you think I called it an act of war???
Nullification. If that fails, secession.
What are we going to do about it? I guess we can keep calling, emailing, faxing, and even demonstrating in Washington DC and our own state capitols... It is working SOOO well so far...
I am convinced every day that America has lost her guts. Yes, there are a few of what could be deemed a “remnant”. But the reality appears to be - The majority of Americans have lost the will to stand up for what is right (substituting extreme liberalism for “right” in the process).
And if the previous years when Republicans were in control of CONgress are any indication - then even if they take back that body in November, it won’t REALLY matter.
I am praying like never before for this nation. I firmly believe that God is our only hope. And as God is getting pushed further and further OUT of society... Well...
And the American people should respond in kind. That is, take up arms and remove the members of congress, the acting president and his buffoon VP. Then we start over.
Did I say bend over???
This bloodless “attack” is the major offensive SO FAR - OTHERS, AND WORSE, TO FOLLOW in an obvious ideological war to force the American people into irreversable socialism.
What the author should have said.
PRAY to our Lord is all I think we can do. Washington could care less what we think or say. Divine intervention is needed, but I fear that this may be in God’s will, i study Bible prophecy and we are in the last days before Christ Returns and there is nothing to show in the scriptures that America is a super power at the end, what better way to destroy America than by this farce of a bill. This is not about healthcare it is about power. PRAY!!!
And...if that fails??
how come in these formulations it's always us who do the dying?
I cried for my country today.
This administration has violated first amendment rights by withholding water from a district as punishment for electing a republican.
This congress is attempting to push through a bill that they have not read and from which they have exempted themselves.
That in itself tells the story that it’s not about the bill itself but it’s passage.
We’re on the brink, and my country is dying. The blood of our fathers can not be allowed to be rendered a waste by these people who offer mealy mouthed service to our constitution as an abstract, but disrespect the reality of it and those who have defended it.
This is little more than a modern day Morrill Tariff, (in effect), with the specific intent to leave our constitution in rags.
Pray is something we do every day if you're a Christian... DO is something we MUST consider unless we consider ourselves sheep.

Progressive Promise, October 2005
Every anti-individual collectivist/statist has declared war on Americans. Witness them. Identify them.
Some should be allowed to resign and go back to their families.
I think a lot of cried for our country today. We’re watching and attempted coup d’etat unfold.
I am working diligently to pay off every debt and learn a new skill set as a back up income so I can go underground if need be
In my current position there is no way to fall the radar
The Republic is dead we just don’t have guts to admit it
Ther’s four on there that have never read the constitution or at least don’t know how to apply it.
Tis America today!
Tommorow will probably get a lot louder.
It is not socialism to force people to purchase a product from a state controlled entity. It’s FASCISM.
I wish commentators would get the term correct.
Socialism is government controlling a program paid into by every citizen to ‘level the playing field.’ THIS monstrosity is the government taking over an industry by regulation and then forcing it’s citizens to support it corporately. THAT is fascism.
If the republic is dead, then states have to break away if there is a hope for liberty to remain.
This could be the demise of the “human experiment”.
You say the Republic is dead... I say the spirit will never die... unless we let it.
They don’t have George Bush to kick around. We are the next target.
WE have 7 months to EDUCATE the American Public about what is going on in this country.
7 months till the next election where we must vote the Rats out of office and neutralize them.
The world is watching. Never forget.
Refuse to pay taxes like Geitner. Go cash so they can’t touch your accounts. I’m thinking of going recluse. Buy a small cabin in PA and drop out of the system until the marxist tide blows over.
Splitting hairs... Socialism comes first.. then Fascism. What has happened in the last year? Socialism, redistribution... Fascism is on the horizon. The remedy and the tenor of my statement is to stop it BEFORE it become Fascism.
Why.... Let others dig you out of your self imposed exile?
No, we have been verging on “socialism” for years now. With social programs like the New Deal and War on Poverty, that was the socialism part. We have now evolved into fascism with the election of Obama.
Thanks for the exposure... I bookmarked your site
Build a compound and join the milita...... no, wait, go Galt.
When Democrats drive the bus, they floor it and hurtle down the road to socialism at 90 mph. When the Republicans are driving, they may only be going 50 mph, but they always head in the same direction.
This entire federal government is hopelessly out of control because we have allowed a privileged ruling class of professional politicians develop. They'll never willingly reform and cut the central government back to the minimal, Constitutionally-bound original purposes because they've got a very plush, secure, comfortable lifestyle for themselves.
I hate to be a pessimist, but the only thing that will get this malignant, hostile central government back under control is a hard reset, and I don't see how that can happen without either complete collapse or great violence. Either mechanism will not be pleasant.
Dark days ahead.
Costa Rica perhaps?
“The Democrat party is not the whole enemy. The enemy is government in all of its natural-rights-violating forms”
I agree. I’m stunned at how out of touch (or uncaring) our elected representatives are with we the people. I’ve seen an ever-expanding government over my lifetime. I’ve seen various groups singled out as being wronged somehow, and that we the people needed to step up and right the wrongs. Oh—and BTW, the middle class will be paying for all this with higher taxes and fees, and the institution of a bigger and bigger government bureaucracy to set up the “programs” that would solve all the problems and injustices. The people I’ve met at the tea parties are these middle class people who have been quietly paying the bills all these years and allowing the government to play a bigger role in their lives. They’ve reached their tipping point. Listening to Rep. Cardoza in the reconciliation committee today, I was embarrassed for my country. And he’s just one I use as an example. He has been watching way too many Oprah shows. His arguments in favor of Obamamcare amounted to a segment from her show. Apparently there are enough people out there who swallow this cr*p and elect these kinds of people. I don’t know what the resolution will be....I’m afraid it is not going to end well.
I’ll give you that but... The American sheep expected something else. Fascism is a disease that must be eradicated before it becomes entrenched. It is at it’s weakest during it’s birth.
the republic is not like santa claus. the health of its spirit or how fondly we remember it counts, really, for nothing.
I agree completely.
EXACTLY BOB!! That’s why we have to stop with the “socialism” label and describe it for WHAT IT IS!
Then we can have a greater chance of blocking it. Right now people hear “socialism” and think “Europe doesn’t have it so bad” (even though we know they do). However to explain what fascism is and compare to this health insurance plan... we’ll have a greater chance of stopping it before it is entrenched.
