WASHINGTON CHAOS PORTENDS OBAMA'S VISION FOR AMERICA
By Christopher G. Adamo
At last, the stark reality of Liberalism is unmasked in its undiluted form. What cannot be discussed honestly and succinctly is couched in lies and fraud, and then sold to the public as benevolence and compassion. Those in Congress who cannot be convinced, based on the merits of the effort, to participate and support it are coerced or bought off. The means of garnering “votes” in the Senate or in the House of Representatives is irrelevant. In the end, all that matters is that the Leftist agenda, of which Obamacare is a cornerstone, becomes the law of the land.
Over the past few months, Americans were outraged by such denigrating manipulations as the vote buying of Senators Mary Landrieu and Ben Nelson (cynically nicknamed the “Louisiana Purchase” and “Cornhusker Kickback” respectively). Two prominent Democrat Senators were willing to abandon any consideration of the good of the country (ignoring the U.S. Constitution completely in the process) in return for a promise of plunder from the nation’s already thoroughly ravaged Treasury. Yet, despite such shameless tactics, the Obama/Pelosi/Reid cabal still lacks the votes to impose their statist nightmare on America.
In a saner time, decorum and respect by the government for the will of the people would have necessitated that the effort be dropped, and the socio-economic fabric of the country be allowed to remain intact. But, as the nation is realizing, the current “leadership” in Washington is significantly different from anything ever contended with in the past. These people have never had the slightest intention of “deriving their governing power from the consent of the governed,” as advised in the Declaration of Independence.
Rather, their modus operandi has consistently been to fool enough people, enough of the time, to pass milestones from which they anticipate the nation can never turn back. The despicable previous lies and bullying employed in this strategy are daily exceeded by the current lies and bullying. And, in the process, real America is increasingly shut out and maneuvered towards eventual extinction.
The latest development in this nauseating battle offers a glimpse of just how far down this slippery slope things have gone. Congressmen Dennis Cardoza and Jim Costaand of California, Democrats both, are changing from “no” to “yes” votes on Obamacare, according to a report from the National Republican Congressional Committee. At the same time, it seems that the Interior Department has suddenly opened the floodgates (literally) of water reserves into their agricultural districts, which had been previously starved for water on account of purported “environmental concerns.”
It would require a mindless naivete to ignore the timing of this sudden, otherwise inexplicable surrender by Interior, which had steadfastly refused to do so in the past, despite enormous hardships inflicted on the people of the region. Yet, in consideration of the equally sudden professed change of sentiments on Obamacare by Cardoza and Costa, the big picture becomes all too inescapable. And its hideous ramifications for the future of the country cannot be overstated.
Here is a stark example of the abuse of power against which the Founders sought, with all of their wisdom and all of their beings, to protect the Republic. For starters, the Interior Department should never have been allowed to exert itself in so destructive manner over the water usage of California farmers. But, more significantly, its ability to suddenly reverse itself, based not on any drastic change in the environmental status of the area, but as a weapon to be wielded against the independent thoughts of the “Representatives” of those districts, strips any vestige of true representation from them.
More significantly, however, such criminal usurpations of constitutional governance will not stop there. If this scheme is allowed to stand, its effects will ultimately redound disastrously to the rest of us. Every congressional district in the country could conceivably be choked and repressed over some insignificant precept with which the government ostensibly finds fault, with redress only being permitted if the affected Senators or Representatives from that state or district comply with the demands of the Obama administration.
Not long ago, so drastic a scenario would have been relegated to the entertaining excesses of suspense novels. In like manner, the almost comical gaffes committed regularly by all three in recent weeks belie the truly sinister nature of their agenda. But real America should not be lulled into trivializing the magnitude of this looming peril. The next few weeks will be a crucial time for the people of this nation to stand firm in their opposition to it.
The shocking depths to which Barack Obama, abetted by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D.-NV) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-CA), have already descended in their obsessive drive to institute their metastasizing “nanny state” leave little doubt as to the consequences America faces if they prevail. Only the grim determination of a courageous and resolute opposition stands between them and the end of America as we know it.
