On Wednesday, after Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) spoke for 21 hours on the Senate floor in opposition to Obamacare, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh said on his radio show that though some may find it "corny," opposing Obamacare is "about freedom."

I watched Ted Cruz during his valiant effort to halt the disaster called Obamacare. I hope you watched it as well. If he has used it once, he used the phrase “...we no longer listen to the people, our constituents...” over a hundred times. And he was right...they don’t. And the fact is, THEY NO LONGER NEED TO.

I’ve sent my little rant on this topic before but Ted’s honest comment compels me to do so again.

Dick Bachert

Among others, Thomas Jefferson warned that the financial disaster we now face would be but one of many problems paper money would visit upon us if we allowed our “leaders” to remove the backing from the currency, to wit:

“When the servants if the people are paid with something other than that which the people themselves have produced (i.e. the real, tangible products of their labors or some fixed and real medium of that exchange), the roles of master and servant will be reversed.”

It was believed by Roger Sherman and a majority of those at the Constitutional Convention that un-backed currency would so damage the fabric of the nation that they ATTEMPTED to prohibit it with these few words at Article 1, Section 10, requiring the states to enforce the prohibition: “No State shall…make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts;”

If the people and their states grew inattentive to this matter (and they have!), Jefferson also saw this problem ahead:

In a letter to John Taylor in 1816, he wrote, “And I sincerely believe, with you, that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies; and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale.”

We have been “…swindling futurity…” for a long time and this is now where we find ourselves. If the government, through its banker masters at the Federal Reserve, can create “money” from thin air, they certainly don’t need ours every April 15th. That annual sheep shearing is simply an attempt to vacuum enough of the excess paper from the system to keep the rest of us from catching on to the biggest theft ring in the history of man. They have now created so much that their attempt is failing and failing badly to a point where all but the dullest among us (Obama voters and his growing cadres of personal and corporate welfare beneficiaries) are starting to “get it.”

If you understood that last paragraph, you can now make the small leap to an understanding as to why the “progressive” utopian welfare state hacks in Washington don’t give a damn WHAT you think. Their power to create all the “money” they need to fuel their infernal machine and fill the gaping maws of enough of those hoards of welfare constituents to assure their perpetual re-election means that — ready — THEY NO LONGER NEED YOU! They have become, as Mr. Jefferson predicted, our MASTERS.

That they are taking down a nation and a system that has provided more wealth, safety and abundance to more people than any other in history matters not to them. Failing to grasp the lesson of the French Revolution, they believe themselves to be above the impending disaster.

We’re running out of time to get this increasingly rapacious beast back into the cage from which we have carelessly allowed it to escape.

Cruz begs us to get three people to sign that petition and make our cloture calls coming, he said either on Friday or Saturday.

How hard is that?

For this he was born; for this he was elected into the Senate.

Yep. A profile in courage in the spirit of this country's founding fathers IMO.

Need 99 more just like him.

Hearing Rush play McQueeg clips on the radio right now is making my stomach ill. I'm about to throw up (again) today.

Oh the symbolism! Let's play a game. Who can find Senator Cruz and we- his silent world of true conservative republicans. Next find the stupid republican party, the leftist dems and RINOS!

Senator Ted Cruz is a patriot and brave man. Whatever happens in the Senate, he has not only spoken for the majority of Americans but also exposed the cowardice of the Republican Party. Senator Cruz’s courage will all be for naught if WE do not do our part as Americans, for our Republic.

I believe his `grandstanding’ is resonating for many of us because we haven’t seen a sincere Republican acting bravely and honorably in a long time,

or as Horton put it:

`I meant what I said, and I said what I meant.
An elephant’s faithful, one hundred percent.’

He’s reminding us of what makes us different from Democrats.

Sadly, the soul of the GOP is nothing but a giant black hole these days.
