With the passage of the bill that creates federal government-controlled healthcare, we are now so far down the road to serfdom that we can begin to see outskirts of the shantytown that it is. At the moment we can only hope that the Supreme Court, still smarting from their public drubbing at the State of the Union appearance, will side with the states now challenging the new law and rule on its fundamental unconstitutionality.
For those Americans not content to be serfs nor inclined to be
fitted with the yoke of socialism, we need to keep speaking out,
keep fighting back. We should demand from those who still
faithfully represent us that there can be no negotiating with
politicians hell-bent on creating this socialist utopia. We need
politicians with backbone and the commitment to stand their
ground against this wave of legislation on additional healthcare
provisions, cap and tax, and all the other attempts by the
radical left to continue to transform America for the worse. We
need politicians who can call this agenda what it is - socialist.
We long for the unwavering principled leadership of Ronald Reagan
who withstood the progressives of his own party much less the
socialist Democrats who came to prominence and the socialist
leaning mainstream press. We need politicians with the courage
that Reagan exhibited when he shouted not only “Mr. Gorbachev,
tear down this wall!” but also “I paid for this microphone!” when
those in New Hampshire threatened to silence him. Let us find
politicians with that fire, with that passion. And let us stoke
those fires within us. After all, we also paid for the
microphones even the ones that the socialists in the government
use. But let’s stop at paying for our own shackles.
Re: Stacy Cline’s Without Recourse:
I enjoyed Stacy Cline’s opinion piece entitled “Without
Recourse”, though I find it more fact than opinion. There is
another element in regards to the constitutionality of the health
care mandate. Isn’t there both state and federal law that guards
against being forced under duress or influence into entering into
a contract with a private party against one’s will? It is my
understanding no person ever has to enter into a contract with
anyone for any reason. Isn’t this a legal challenge?

Re: W. James Antle, III.’s The Disappearing Pro-Life Democrat:
The Obama executive order has no standing. The president cannot redirect funding from what has been designated by legislation that has been passed and signed.
Nixon had refused to spend monies that had been specified in
legislation. A court suit was filed and the Supreme Court ruled
that the president cannot change the spending that has been
enacted by the Congress.

Re: Peter Ferrara’s Turning America Into a Banana Republic:
My thanks to the excellent and revealing article by Peter Ferrara
for his statement about the current events we are faced with
today. I grew up standing when elders entered the room, remaining
silent at the dining table if guests were present, accepting
one’s good word with faith, keeping our promises, and treating
others as we would have them treat us. What happened? As I
listened to Nancy Pelosi’s speech until I became so nauseated I
had to turn it off, I was temporarily mesmerized by the proven
lies that flowed with ease from her mouth. I am sure she knows
that millions of Americans know that what she says is false, and
yet she repeats the spin, adding that this is for the American
people. Now I may be confused, but I can’t help thinking which
Americans could she be referring to? Beats me. Sarcasm aside,
this issue is so big and the results of it possibly passing more
devastating than we can imagine. This affects every single human
being in America. Thankfully there are those in media to explain
and clarify the facts of exactly what the Democratic legislation
will do TO us and not FOR us. You are appreciated.

A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
