The Shot Heard Around the World

Updated on May 3, 2010

Not since 1775 has a single event so changed the course of history. In 1775 the Battles of Lexington and Concord marked the beginning of the Revolutionary War; a war from which the greatest nation this world has ever known emerged. Ralph Waldo Emerson in his "Concord Hymn” described the first shot fired by the Patriots during these engagements as the "shot heard 'round the world."

On Sunday, March 21, 2010, that same great nation was brought to its knees by the passage of one lone bill. When Comrade Nancy Pelosi Gaveled the Ayes have it by 219 to 212, she is in essence fired the second shot heard around the world through the heart of that same glorious country that was born those 200 plus years ago.

She and her fellow Commicrat members of the Politburo have finally accomplished what no other entity has been able to do. She fulfilled her fellow Marxist/Socialist Nikita Khrushchev’s prediction, “we will bury you without firing a shot.” Well with the passage of this bill, get out the shovels and start digging; America is dead!

During the final week we watched so called moderate democrat after so called moderate democrat fall in line with Pelosi’s Light Brigade; all chanting in unison:

Ours is not to make reply,
Ours is not to reason why,
Ours is but to do & die

And die they most assuredly will. Like all other suicide bombers; they will not only kill themselves with their vote, they are taking out an entire country with it. Thus they are sacrificing their political careers in exchange for The Death of America! But unlike their fellow Jihadists, they aren’t even promised 72 virgins as far as we know.

So why did they do this, one can only imagine the pressure that was brought to bear on these last holdouts. Remember this is Chicago style politics. Obama’s Luca Bras; Rahm Emanuel has been known to send out a dead fish wrapped in newspaper to a political opponent in the past.

So, just like Lenin, the leader of the first great Socialist Republic Hussein Obama is enforcing the will of a small minority upon the populace. And also like Lenin Obama rode the wave of class warfare to the ultimate seat of power.

So now what can we expect? Well once you add the government takeover of healthcare to the other segments already controlled by government; banking and the automobile industry Obama is well on his way to implementing the Marxist Leninist strategy. Step one; the people revolt against the corporations. Obama successfully framed the healthcare debate painting the evil insurance company as the enemy; thus the debate supposedly became about health insurance reform! Step two; the people supposedly won with the passage of this Abomination known as healthcare reform when in essence the Obama Oligarchy won. Step three; now watch for the largest entitlement program ever created overseen by the largest expansion of government beauracy in the history of the world!

So with that my friends I leave you with two comparative quotes that say it all. The man who followed Lenin as the leader of the most evil empire the world had ever known said, “Crisis alone permitted the authorities to demand—and obtain—total submission and all the necessary sacrifices from its citizens.”

Rahm Emanuel, the man who sits at the right hand of America’s first dictator said, “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” Does that explain how and why healthcare was passed? America is in crisis and these modern day Socialists just followed the lead of their forefathers!

      You said it all. I am 68, worked all my life, and I never thought I would see the day when "ignorance" by so many people would win over saving our Republic. I am sad for my family, espcially my children and grandchildren. They will never have the opportunites we had to work succeed, and even fail. This is what America has been about. It appears that George Orwell's "Brave New World" is right around the corner and Nikita Kruschev was on target years ago when he said "America will fall from within!"

      A right fine Hub, friend. You are spot on. This is a travesty. Our Founding Fathers must be rolling over in their graves. Shameful.

      patriot, you know I proudly walk in lock step with most everything you say. It is stunning to see just how low the democrats regard most of us and our constitution. I wish it were November already. Can't you picture vapid Princess Nan saying how the huge dem loss is actually a victory and a show of support for Obummacare and the progressives. I swear that woman lives on another planet!!!

      I kept thinking to myself, it can't pass. No one can be that ignorant, EVEN the democratic party, to ignore the will of the people who, according to every single poll, including liberal ones, indicate that the majority of Americans opposed the bill. But here we are nonetheless.

      I keep wondering after Obama said that the government still works for the people, which people he was referring to?

      Terrific hub, Patriot. I pray we never get to the "acceptance" stage because then we become the sheep Obama wants us to be. He is trying to break our spirit and we really have to stop this from happening. I hope we hold on to the outrage and use it to energize our cause.

      What makes you think Obama has not promised the traitors 72 virgins for their votes.. I did not think there was any limit on his Promises,, empty promises, many will be surprised when they file a claim for their 30 pieces of silver or 72 virgins, and the President hands them a handful of his excrement.. What fools these mortals be!!

      The Democrats fight dirty, and they get away with it because they know the good people won't give it right back. But look what happened when Glenn Beck went after Van Jones. It's time to really go after all of them.

      With loss comes sadness; then anger; then acceptance. We are all in the sadness stage now because we're experiencing the first stages of the Death of our country. Soon we will move into the anger stage which we must maintain and never let this "diesease" progress into the acceptance stage. If we stay angry the country has a chance; if we move into acceptance our country is truly doomed!

      Patriot, Well said! I think many of us are so frustrated and the feeling of helplessness is depressing. Excellent hub.
