Time to Fight

On Christmas Eve, the cynical Scrooge’s of the United States Senate voted to expand the size of government, as well as its power and reach into the medical system.

Even thought it’s a chilly Christmas, I’m here to tell you, the battle is NOT over.

On a freezing December day, Lieutenant General Lewis Burwell “Chesty” Puller, USMC, during the Battle of Chosin Reservoir, told his men,

“We’ve been looking for the enemy for some time now. We’ve finally found him. We’re surrounded. That simplifies things.”

I’ve spoken to and corresponded with DC Downsizers this week who were tempted to despair. They rightly recognize this bill as a dangerous blow, to our healthcare, to our economy, and to our liberty. They saw yesterday’s vote coming, and they see defeat, and worse, the destruction to follow with this tremendously unconstitutional bill.

But I want you to know, “We’ve found the enemy. We’re surrounded. That simplifies things.”

Your enemies are the Democrats who supported this bill. And your enemies are the Republicans, who didn’t bother to fight until Americans showed up at Town Hall Meetings and vented their anger.

Yes, your enemies include the very same Republicans who pushed through a bailout bill, now a little more than a year ago. And, if history is any guide, they will be your enemies when they return to power and refuse to do anything to repeal this so-called healthcare reform . . .

. . . that is, unless you continue to fight, and resolve that you will indeed win.

The story continues …..
