The Shot Heard Around the World
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!
