Nancy Pelosi Invokes the Founding Fathers to Justify the Health Care Reform Bill

A Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, “A republic, if you can keep it.”

Leftists have an anomalous disposition towards this country’s history, the Founding Fathers, and the Constitution. The expanding chasm between what the documented intentions were of the Founders, and the fantastical and unsupportable conjecture of the Founders intentions by Leftist ideologues, are inexhaustible. The truth of the Founders intentions and the true meaning of the Constitution lie not in Supreme Court case law, not in manufactured history by the Left, and certainly not in the ideological cesspool of the Democratic Party. The truth lies in reading the Constitution, a knowledge of history, and studying the commentaries by the authors, which clearly explains their intentions without the need of conjecturing intellectuals educated with propaganda 250 years later.

Now along comes the consummate apparatchik of anti-Americanism, Nancy Pelosi, invoking the words of Thomas Jefferson, straight from the Declaration of Independence, to justify one of the most constitutionally usurping pieces of legislation written by Congress—the health care reform bill.

Upon passing the bill, Pelosi said:

We will honor the vows of our founders, who in the Declaration of Independence said that we are “endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” This legislation will lead to healthier lives, more liberty to pursue hopes and dreams and happiness for the American people. This is an American proposal that honors the traditions of our country.

As effortlessly as the reading of Pelosi’s statement glides off the educated reader’s tongue, the words hauntingly danced off Pelosi’s disoriented tongue, burdened with ignorance. When Pelosi speaks, especially regarding issues of substance, in that halting and bewildered cadence, it can be anecdotally substantiated that her cerebral synapses are greeting each other for the first time, again, as she tries to formulate strings of coherent sentences.
