Obama's Barbarians Are At Our Gates

Worth ReadingGordon Bishop On The Issues

Yes, it seems as if we have reached the last inning in President Barack Hussein Obama's reckless health care game.The long game will soon be decided.

My question to you is: Have you played your part, have you protected yourself, your family and your friends?

Have your elected representatives who acted in your best interest and that of their constituents?

Recently, I asked my Doctor, "What's your position on Obama's health care plan?

His answer: "It has nothing to do with health care. It has only to do with control."

This came to my attention from Daniel G. Anderson of Chevy Chase, Maryland 20815 in the December 21st issue of The Washington Times.

Yes, Obama is a socialist Marxist control freak!

Health care is one-sixth of of America's economy.

Obama already has nationalized most of America's industrial economy, led by the automobile industry.

This Far Left Radical Socialists want to nationalize our banks -- and even more!

This is only the beginning of an Islamic Marxist nation, as envisioned by this Chicago politician, or thug, occupying the White House with his crooked Chicago Gang.

Are Americans so weak and defenseless as to submit to a trillion dollar bankruptcy of this great nation?

Will we give up the best health care system in the world?

Will we grovel at the feet of reigning politicians who dole out health care in Washington?

Will we surrender those precious freedoms given through generations from our founding fathers?

Since when have Americans surrendered those liberties given freely to us by countless generations?

I remember another 9th inning, an important one from years ago. The New York Yankees were behind and failing fast. Forecasters threw up their hands when a brave young catcher named Yogi Berra said, "It ain't over 'till it's over!"

Guess who won in that famous last inning?

We are men and women of a proud land. We no longer have Yogi at the plate.

We are the plate!

This may be our last inning.

In a long game of strength, character and a will to defeat those who would rob us of our freedoms and our liberty, let us join Yogi, as we all should say, "It ain't over 'till it's over!"

Too often we have waited to long. But it is never too late to defend our rights and our traditions.

So, let us begin again. Let us review the history of this impending health care disaster.

This present administration has been emboldened by its capture of banks and much of our auto industry. Now they are closing in on health care. As my doctor said, "it has nothing to do with health care, it has only to do with control."

America's health care system is universally considered "the best in the world." Does it have flaws? Of course! What doesn't. Who doesn't?

But do you take the best-designed engine in the world and trash it in favor of an untried government program that has never been tested?

Incidentally, other government programs have been tested and nearly all have failed miserably.

There is a positive answer to all of this. There are three health care reforms, which could easily ensure health care insurance for every single American citizen.

First, it has been proven that "Tort" reform would substantially reduce unnecessary health care cost by at least 60 percent. This is because doctors and hospitals fear unfounded lawsuits.

America lives in a crazy lawsuit society. Too many lawyers are choking the legal system. They love "Tort" because that's where the big bucks are.

The great bard, William Shakespeare, once observed: "First, kill all the lawyers!"

I wouldn't go that far, but we must first deal with a legal system that is totally corrupt.

And remember, too many American Presidents have been, and continue to be lawyers, including the Clintons (Bill and Hillary) -- and now, the Obamas (Barack and Michele).

They're all products of Yale Law School.

What a wasteful way to make a living and then take over the White House...and the United States of America.

We could go on and on talking about the huge number of physicians who will throw in the towel, or hospitals closing, regulation of drug distribution, and enduring the pain that British and Canadian citizens endure with rationed health care.

Enough is enough!

Stand with us and say, "America will not surrender its traditions, its liberties, or above all, its sacred honor."
