Vanity: Let Cool Heads Prevail

Posted on 11/07/2009 7:07:40 PM PST by Patriot2A

My dear Conservatives:

Tonight, as I sit at home sipping some vodka, trying to kill the pain caused by 20 years of wear and tear on my body courtesy of the U.S. Navy, I am watching the debate leading to the vote on Pelosi-care health reform bill. As many of you, I am livid, pissed off, mad and frustrated at the arrogance of our elected officials and their attempts to -once more- subvert the Constitution, impose yet another Federal mandate on the States, and ignore the People's will. I have read some calls to action from people on this forum that, taken out of context, can be used against us, true Conservatives, at a later time. Remember that what you post online today, will remain online forever.

I urge all of us to be patient, let the system work and let your representatives vote according to their conscience(s). If this bill passes, and once it gets signed by the President, we will most likely see that legal challenges to the bill will make it all the way to the SCOTUS. IF and WHEN SCOTUS decides on the constitutionality of this government takeover of 1/6th of the US economy -and we are forced to heed by newly created law by Congress- THEN we can take action AS PROVIDED by the CONSTITUTION in the form of redress, civil disobedience and other tactics.

I am as (or more) passionate about this matter than any of you. I am impatient by nature, and I am pissed off. But we need to measure our words, control our impulses and focus our efforts. WE are BETTER than that! Let the liberals and the fringe left fight it out and make fools of themselves.

Let's be wise, wait for the right moment, choose the time, the place and the method of action...

America is already engaged in an uncivil war of ideas, thanks to class warfare, identity politics, race-baiting and a failing public-education system, courtesy of progressive policies of the last 100 years. So far, the battle has been fought on the lamestream media and the internet. We have taken to the streets by the hundreds of thousands in the form of Tea Parties, townhall meetings, etc.

May God help our Republic if this war ever goes kinetic. The repercussions would be unthinkable and the cost in lives and treasure would be disastrous. Let's not give the libs a reason to pigeonhole us into a category of extremists because of one of our fine-members' visceral (albeit well intended) comments.

But then again, maybe it is time to thin the herd...and renew the tree of liberty.

God bless America and may God bless all of you.

NOW you tell me to curb my temper! Where were you a few minutes ago when I sent Jane Velez Mitchell of HSN an email telling her that its Liberals that have destroyed our country.

Thank you for a thoughtful and sensible writing. However, I’m not sure we have the time to wait.

How about I call my reps and senators constantly and ask them to vote against it. And how about I write letters to the editor of my local paper and let everyone on the net know how I feel about it and complain about it to all my friends and then if that doesn’t work I’ll follow your plan.

I stand impatiently patient by your side. Would love a sip of the vodka too, but I do not drink. This may change soon!

I will fight this bill to the bitter end.

This is just the vote on one bill. It’s not law yet. We still have the Senate version and the Conference version to get through. This battle is not over yet. Our chances are better in the Senate anyway. Stay active people. The battle hasn’t ended yet.

I somewhat agree, I especially think that are form of protest to events such as this cannot turn to violence.

I think any true change will only come when one state (cough *Texas* cough) decides enough is enough and decides to leave the Union, what will be the final straw and how may states decide to come with are the real questions.

The system is broken. It does not function properly or we would not even be discussing this situation.

Well said. We do not have the money to continue this nonsense. The cupboard is bare, the wallet is empty. They are intent on destroying wealth, private property rights, and personal freedom. It will be twice the fight to regain them once they are gone.

I would like to thank the Republicans for their recent acquisition of a backbone and testicles, but WHERE THE HELL were you when we should have been cutting government growth when you were in power? What were you thinking when your out of control spending was worse than the previous batch of Democrats?

What were you thinking when you told GWB to back off from partially privatizing SS? What were you thinking when you decided Medicare part D was a great idea?

That is exactly right. We all work, are busy with family, etc. But the time has come; we cannot fail, falter or slumber. We continue the fight, day by day. The founders did much more and lost much more.
