For Dems, Home Is Where the Heartburn Is

Don't forget the wannabe socialists will also change the names from time to time. They are now calling it health insurance reform.

The same way they went from "global warming" to "climate change" when the data didn't fit the message.

I seem to remember reading about these methods of mis-direction somehwere in my distant past. I seem to recall that the Soviets were notorious for these tactics.

The same members who wrote the book on political antagonism under President Bush are lashing out at voters for being outspoken on health care. In a stunning column in USA Today, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) seethed about the "ugly campaign" to derail the government takeover of health care. While everyday people are turning out by the thousands to voice concerns, the message from the top was simple: Anyone who disagrees with us is "simply un-American."

Obviously, these leaders have been so insulated from public opinion that any kind of focused resistance is uncomfortable. After getting their way for years, Congress seems shocked that voters are paying attention-so much so that any form of accountability or pointed questioning has them unnerved. Democrats who are used to seeing a few dozen constituents at their townhalls are facing boisterous, standing-room-only crowds--and their best retort is that dissent is "un-American"? Our nation was founded by dissenters! Deep down, these leaders know that this conflict is not a threat to society but only to their political fortunes.

In my home state of Louisiana, Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) put it best this weekend. "Someone told me I should have security for this meeting today because of the angry crowds... I told them the best security is to vote right!" Pelosi and Hoyer would do well to heed that advice. Like us, they realize that this debate is about more than health care reform. It's about President Obama's ability to push a radical social agenda. With every packed townhall, every phone call to a member's office, and every email expressing concern, these leaders' dream of redefining America is slipping away. Whether people realize it or not, this is an historic moment in our nation's development. If we can drive back the government takeover of health care, we could turn the tide for our country's future.

Decades ago, a mathematician named Jacob Bronowski wrote, "Has there ever been a society which has died of dissent? Several have died of conformity in our lifetime." Don't conform! Join the movement to "question authority" in Washington. Check out our nationwide townhall schedule at www.frcaction.org. A few hours of your time could literally save the nation. If you don't see your district or state mentioned, I encourage you to call your members of congress and ask them to meet with those whom they represent. Let us know what you find out.
