When Will We Revolt?

The constitutionality of the Democrats' health care bill has been called into question repeatedly . While some in Congress have scoffed at the idea that the U.S. Constitution is even relevant in the health care debate, others have been looking for ways to violate the Constitution to ensure that ObamaCare cannot be rolled back by future Congresses.

Rhetorical question: Doesn't Congress derive it's power from the U.S. Constitution? Having no other foundation on which to base its authority, a Congress that seeks to undermine the Constitution undermines itself.

As a U.S. citizen, I do not accept the authority of any "legislative body" that ignores the U.S. Constitution. If Congress ignores the Constitution, we the people should ignore Congress.

As U.S. citizens, our rights are inalienable. Anyone who even attempts to violate our rights forfeits all legitimacy and authority.

1 : to renounce allegiance or subjection (as to a government) : rebel
2 a : to experience disgust or shock b : to turn away with disgust


Representative Democracy Thrown Away In Senate Bill

Unconstitutional: Reid is demanding not just power over the current Congress, but any future Congress as well…

Facts Show Democrats’ Health Care Bills Break the President’s Promises

Voters Say 3-1, ObamaCare Should Not Pay For Abortions

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius: Everyone will pay into abortion-coverage fund.

U.S. Voters Oppose Health Care Plan By WIDE Margin

The last time Congress passed such an unpopular bill with such important ramifications by such a narrow majority: 1854. The Democratic Party—and the nation—paid a heavy price.

Obama is in deep trouble: STRONG disapproval outstrips overall approval for first time…

Strong Disapproval of Bush at the end of his 2nd term: 43%
Strong Disapproval of Obama Now: 46%

I've been asking myself, basically, the same thing: What is it going to take??? If not NOW, when??? But my ultimate question is "What is it going to take for us to turn to God?"

He is our only real hope.

Don't misunderstand, I have been very active with the Tea Party movement, contacting legislators, etc. I'm not talking about 'just' praying, and being blissfully ignorant while our Constitution is being shred. (shredded?)

But as active as I have tried to be, I see that it will all be for nothing if we can't humble ourselves and ask God for His divine intervention.

Are things just not bad enough yet? Is there any point at which you would see yourself as calling on God? (or maybe you are. I'm just asking! :) I'm just not seeing a nationwide call to turn to God, and personally, I would like to see that happening. If not now, then when --if ever-- will that happen?

And, I'm not trying to criticize you personally. Why aren't Christians (of all people!) calling on fellow-Christians to pray, and pray BIG? (Think of the role Robert Muhlenberg, and other evangelists played in the American Revolution. They were patriot revolutionaries AND men of God.)

At present, our men of God are not taking the lead in defending the republic; and those leading the defense of the republic are not acknowledging God.) I predict failure for our side 'til we get both aspects going on for us.

egads, sorry so long! And it was PETER Muhlenberg.

When Will We Revolt?

We mush nerve stop.
It's already past the time.
The United States will forever be changed with the passage of this health care debacle.
We must fight hard to take over this Fascist takeover.

The fuse is lit. The original revolution was over much much less than this travesty.

Velcro said...

The revolt we must have is against the people currently in power, not the system or the jobs they occupy. Therefore our revolt needs to be wise and constitutional. Our energies and the "violence" we must do to the status quo MUST abide with what we believe: Constitutionally and legally. Otherwise we align ourselves with the hypocrites we seek to depose.

Velcro said...

[continued comment] Within those constraints, however, all of our energies must be cut loose, guided by thoughtful coordination.

As with Jane...sorry for the long post. You seem to have issued a call, RK!

JLJ: Interesting that you should bring this up. I follow the posts at HotAir very closely, and over time I've come to discover that one of their two primary bloggers is an avowed atheist. His analysis is very astute, but I think his atheism is responsible for his self-described "eeyore-ish" perspective.

Lately I've been thinking...for all the atheist conservatives out there, now is the time to be hoping for some serious deus ex machina action. Without some last minute providential intervention, this republic is toast.

TM: As I see it, if we can't kill this seed before it germinates, we aren't going to be able to kill it after it takes root.

DaBlade: It's not the same kind of tyranny they were dealing with in 1776, but it's tyranny none the less.

Velcro: I agree with the need for judicious strategies in defeating this illegitimate one-party legislation. But at this point, I think civil disobedience would be justified if there are any principled conservatives who would be willing to take the hit.

On the other hand, I wouldn't advise anyone to get in any kind of trouble without being fully prepared to handle the consequences. And as you suggest, hypocrisy and any literal violence are unwarranted.

Ultimately ObamaCare needs to be dragged through the Supreme Court for a number of reasons. One can hope that the Supremes have the wisdom to handle the issues appropriately.

Great round up of stories Right Klik. I agree, when are we going to revolt! Reid and Pelosi are TRULY revolting. They should be imprisoned for crimes against America. They are ignoring the constitution and actively destroying it. We should ignore them at the very least, and imprison them, actually.

It really burns me up they are pulling all the on Christmas Eve! They would do it on Christmas if they could get away with it...actually I wouldn't put that past them either. So, this is why I'm posting nice relaxing video's this week. I'm just sick of these bums and we need some cheer. I listened to the whole Tull Acoustic CD at work today, it's perfect for Christmas, or any time. I got at the library, so doubly nice.
Merry Christmas to You and Yours, Right Klik.
And A Happy New Year to you for all you do exposing the criminals.

I'm ready for the revolution ! SWEETEST HOLIDAYS to u my friend..big NY hugss!!! xoxoxox

Velcro said...

I can go with civil disobedience, yes. Violence no - I agree with you. Re: deus ex machina, according to readings I've been doing lately, many (tho not all) of the Founding Fathers saw what they were doing as God providing a VERY unique opportunity in Global history. As a Believer, I think these are critical events now. If the US spirals down into socialism, the Refiner's fire will get dramatically hotter. But we will end up with a purer product, which we sorely need.

Well, many people are asking the same question. I think action will be here soon.

The very warmest Christmas wishes to you, and let's prepare ourselves for big battles in the New Year.

AB, Velcro, WHT, NG:

Thank you and Merry Christmas!

I think that the elections next year will dictate when, well if, a more pronounced, hopefully non-violent, revolution occurs. We want to follow our constitutional republic's procedures for ousting traitors and enemies of America. It will work. Our system is flawed and infiltrated by corrupt pols on both sides, but the foundations of it are sound. We just need to take our country back via our election process. And we will. :D
