We are simple people at LibNot.com….certainly not the best writers (I know, not even good ones) and we depend on friends and family to help us by sending well written, straight forward articles that are pertinent to our ideology and that of our readership.
[By the way, if you haven't heard...the president bailed out of town Friday, 21 August for a vacation at Martha's Vineyard with his family. After he was gone there was a press release from the White House regarding the exponential increase in the President's estimate of the budget deficit by some two trillion dollars!! Even I know that bad news is released on late Friday afternoons....so Obama is no different than the rest of the past presidents....except this one is away for a week, thus avoiding the tough questions that would certainly be posed by such a critical main stream-media....yeah, right!]
Inflation, not unlike that of the Carter years (inflation and interest rates over 18%) is on the way folks, so are the long gas lines! The government wants it to help pay down the debt and “we the people” are stuck with it for years to come. Fundamental change to the American form of government, transparency (or a lack, thereof) and the redistribution of wealth are here.
I have a question? Are you upset that our country is being turned upside down by a crew of people that would be on Lenin’s most favorite author list? If not, why not?
A paragraph in the RealClearPolitics article, Hope and Change Has Become Predictable Liberalism that was striking, is the following:
There’s a lesson here for both parties. Healthcare isn’t failing because of Obama’s weaknesses or his opponent’s strength. It is failing because the proposal misapprehends the American character. On a moral level, there are sacrifices of both liberty and responsibility that the American people aren’t willing to make. And on a practical level, citizens who enjoy a world of instant convenience in everything from their music downloads to their airplane tickets aren’t willing to entertain a debate about whether it’s better to ration health care on a Soviet model or a Canadian model.
And, as my title to this post points out, “A revolt is afoot in the nation,” Mr. Senik states:
A revolt is afoot in the nation. The media and the political class might not understand the appeal of the Ron Pauls and Glenn Becks of the world. But even many of those who disagree with Paul and Beck on the specifics understand the draw. Something is resurfacing. Americans are increasingly unafraid to say the word “liberty”. Politicians who don’t share that trait may want to start updating their résumés.
