The far left believes they speak for everyone only because they
have the power to enforce their will on the rest of us. Listen to the
words of Ronald Reagan who followed a White "Obama" (Jimmy
Carter) into the White House. Today, with a super majority of
socialists, Obama is about to deliberately crash our economy.

As he campaigned for the White House in 1980, California Governor Ronald Reagan saw what we still refuse to see for ourselves today: "...that a little intellectual elite in Washington can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves." In 1980 the socialist brigade was much smaller and much harder to distinguish than the communists who are, today, more open and much more brazen than they were then. Today, the communist members of Congress flaunt their socialism rather than hiding it in a closet. Take 15th term Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank [D-MA] who is on the record demanding: "Give us more authority..." and adding that "...there needs to be an immediate increase in spending." Or Vice President Joe Biden who quipped: "You're telling me we have to spend more money to keep from going bankrupt? The answer is yes, I'm telling you." To which, 30 years earlier, Reagan replied, "We have so many people who can't see a fat man standing beside a thin one without coming to the conclusion that the fat man got that way by taking advantage of the thin one."

And, to which Barney Frank continued, "I think there are a lot of rich people out there whom we can tax at a point down the road and recover some of this money." The "rich people" Barney Frank and the socialists plan to tax isn't the Rockefellers, Soroses and the DuPonts and Mellons. It's the struggling middle class which the socialists need to drive down into the underclass of society—the have-nots. Reagan noted that 30 years ago when he said: "The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, its just that they know so much that isn't so."

That's why former impeached federal judge Alcee Hastings, now a Congressman from Florida, admitted that "...all this talk about rules—we make 'em up as we go along." Or why the King of Arrogance, John Conyers whose wife was convicted of soliciting bribes in Detroit, can stand up and, on camera, say, "What's the good of reading a bill if its a thousand pages?" Or the Queen of Arrogance, Nancy Pelosi who can stand up before Congress and say, "We have to pass the bill so you can see what's in it."

Both comments tells you one thing. The members of Congress, who are charged with the responsibility of crafting the legislation they then theoretically debate and find consensus on, do not write the bills they enact. They haven't for close to a hundred years. The bills are actually written by the special interest groups who bribe them with campaign contributions.

Reagan noted that the government cannot control the economy without first controlling the people, and they know when they set out to do that, they must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. That's why 28 term Congressman John Dingell [D-MI] said: "We put the legislation together to control the people." Or, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, speaking on pushing through Obamacare, arrogantly said: "If the gate's closed, we'll go over the fence. If the fence is too high, we'll pole vault in. If that doesn't work, we'll parachute in. But we're going to get healthcare reform passed." Everyone on the left knew the American people were opposed to Obama's bailout (note: not George W. Bush's bailout—Barack Obama's bailout. Particularly the $789 billion dollar American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 where Obama's "Death Board" (the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Research) was hidden, waiting for universal healthcare to pass. But, until the bureaucracy converts Obamacare into a full-blown mandatory universal healthcare plan, the Death Board will have to be content on euthanizing the elderly, disabled veterans and those with full blown AIDS who get their medical help through Medicare and the Veterans Administration.

Reagan still said it best. "When the plans fail, the more the planners plan." The mid-term Election of 2010 is probably the most important election in over 100 years, because what we do in November will determine whether or not we still have a nation in 2012.
