But he answered one of them, Friend, I am not being unfair to you. Didnt you agree to work for a denarius? Matt 20:13
Americas Independence lasted from July 4th 1776 to July 4th 2012. We are no longer a free and independent people we are dependent on an overbearing gummit which can now tell you what to buy and how much you must pay for that purchase. What are you purchasing? Your life has been sold to that gummit by a Democrat congress and a corrupt Supreme Court. After 236 years and numerous wars to maintain our freedom we have had our freedom taken by an enemy from within.
Tonight when you watch those fireworks, just remember they are being fired at you rather than celebrating the defeat of an overreaching, overtaxing and tyrannical king. Tonight will be a celebration of the District of Corruption of the completion of a nearly hundred year plan to slowly own your life and now they have it. If you want to take your chances and go without insurance, you have no choice in that matter; you will buy health insurance. If you want a high deductable since you rarely if ever use it, you have no choice in the matter; you will buy all the bells and whistles. If you want to drop your kids from your plan when they move out or turn 21, you have no choice in the matter, you will cover him. And if you want that heart transplant when you are 68 since your doctor says it will help you live another 10-15 years, you have no choice in the matter; the gummit says no.
We are now living in a Soviet Union where the Central gummit has complete and absolute control of your life from cradle to grave. They now tell you what you can and cant do and where you can and cant buy insurance. You are now buying it from DC its just they are allowing a number of companies who they have chosen to collect the premiums or in this case the Federal taxes. This health insurance unlike the insurance you have had before is mandated so you have no choice of coverage or what options you believe fit your lifestyle. This is because the gummit focuses on the lowest common denominator so the crack addict or alcoholic in the poorest parts of town cant afford a high deductable that option isnt available to you. Just like Moscow or London in 1776, they cant centrally plan for flexibility so you are forced to take what they have to offer, but dont forget to pay your higher taxes for that inflexibility.
Now dont expect any service for the added premiums to cover the uninsurable and crack addicts, you will now have to deal with a bureaucracy that will make Medicare look like the Indy 500. We will be looking at pre-approvals that will be done with the compassion of the IRS and the efficiency of the Post Office. You will be filling out form after form divulging every wart and pimple to some Federal zombie and trying to convince him that you need that mammogram or heart pacemaker like it was his money and not yours because now it is his. Tonight we celebrate the end of Freedom and Independence from King George Obama.
We have one last hope of saving this great experiment of mankind and not Hope and Communism, our hope is the upcoming election and making sure we have 51 Senators. We have to expand the numbers in the House and control the Senate. Every Democrat Sinator is the 51st vote on repeal which is what we have to do or the Death Panels will do their ghoulish work in such efficiency that all of our seniors will be gone in less than 10 years. What Obama, Reid and Pelosi didnt say is the only way to make the numbers work is to get rid of all the high usage insured so you just tighten down the matrix and the computer keeps on denying operations and soon you have a younger healthier less costly group. The fact you have to resort to euthanasia has never bothered the communists since why should killing old people bother a Party that runs on killing babies.
What is our solution? Repeal this monstrosity and let the Free Market and Free People do what they do best. Bring in real competition like they have in the auto insurance industry so the Progressive girl is promoting new and vibrant ideas which cut down on the overhead and give you exactly what you are looking for, cheap coverage. Allow those who want a $5-10,000 deductable have them and enjoy the savings while at the same time having coverage for something major. We dont need King George ruling over us telling us what to eat and drink as well as when to do it we need more freedom not less. It is time for him and Pelosi to go and take their ill gotten millions with them. It is time to campaign like your lives depended on it and in this case it literally does.
Benedict Roberts has destroyed our freedom and it is time to get it back. This will be looked back on as either when we lost our Country or the darkest days of a new dawn. Just like the commies were able to use the baby boom generation as an incrementally communist moving agenda, we have to do the same thing from a freedom granting capitalist movement. We need to educate and redirect people away from big gummit solutions and towards individualistic capitalist solutions. The use of higher deductables and risk pools as well as Progressive streamlined purchasing options to hold down premiums and eliminate central control and taxation.
This is a long term strategy and movement that will not happen overnight just like the imposition of socialized medicine didnt. We will have to peel away the onion skins one at a time before we begin to approach that original idea of 1776 which says free men can govern themselves. We have to promote idea that Freedom and Liberty is the most original and efficient means for both politics and economics for being a dynamic Country. It will take every bit as much effort as our Forefathers gave to defeat an evil tyrant back in our founding as is needed to defeat the evil one we are oppressed by now. It is time to fight the fight to take back our Freedom and give it to the next generation and the next.

There’s a few million idiots on Facebook that need to read your first few paragraphs... They think they’ve won something when they’ve actually lost everything.
This is the first 4th I’ve not felt like celebrating. There’s no more independence, and I’m afraid returning it is no longer a political option, given the ability of the SCOTUS to rewrite our Constitution at will.
Thanks - I can at least treasure the time with my friends and family today.
“This is the first 4th Ive not felt like celebrating.”
Same here. It’s too dry for fireworks, risk of fire. And I haven’t put the flag out.
I finally agree with Michelle “More Of Your Pie” Obama on something:
Thanks to her commie husband, our Congress and Supreme Court, I’ve lost my 4th of July mojo.
Good analogy with the auto insurance. While it IS mandatory, you have a choice of carriers, deductibles, coverage, and payment options. Make that little green lizard WORK for your business!
Well said bray...
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--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. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
“He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.”
I’m going into work. It’s just another lousy day in Soeteroville.
“All this, for a flag?” Michelle Obama*
That is also true. It is only mandatory IF you choose to drive.
But even then, you STILL have choices. Unlike Obamacare.
Thanks for the reminder LH. Those lines are pure brilliance.

“That was stolen from us ALL by a demon named roberts and all that have enabled him.”
This is not all on Roberts, it is on all who enabled Zero and the Liberals.
All is not lost for those who know Jesus. It is with joy I can report, God is still in control. Praise ye the Lord.
The first problem is that people sharing and spreading those words are likely terrorists in the eyes of the Department of Homeland Security and our current administration.
The second problem is where do the people that desire a nanny state government wiping their rears go?
“I believe we are nearing a point where there are enough irreconcilable differences between those Americans who want to control other Americans and those Americans who want to be left alone that separation is the only peaceable alternative.”
I agree and I stated, “and all that have enabled him. That includes everyone going back a hundred or more years.
