President Obama and Congress appear to be holding the American people in contempt. The Dictionary defines contempt as “Lack of respect or reverence for something; disdain; The state of mind of one who despises, the act of despising something.” That seems to be the state of mind of a majority in Congress and Obama: lack of respect, reverence and actually despising the American people. It is this contempt that should propel Americans to a second — but peaceful — American Revolution to replace elected officials at all levels with those who believe in limited government and individual liberty by January 2013.
Despite overwhelming evidence that the vast majority of Americans are rejecting the proposed government and corporate take over of health care, Congress and the President are demonstrating their abject contempt for the American people in their determination to ram this bill through Congress and have the President sign it into law.
They fail to respect several key demonstrated proofs of America’s disapproval. Scott Brown’s victory in Massachusetts — taking a seat held by liberal lion Kennedy in large part due to rejection of the health care agenda. They ignore consistent polls showing growing rejection of Congressional plans. Bills passed only by narrow, dark of night votes in Congress requiring back room deals, political threats, and shedding of key policies favored by liberals while completely ignoring reasonable compromises offered by Republicans. The only Republican component included is one that punishes doctors for spending “too much” on their patients — a hold over from the Bush years: Pay for Performance.
