The Rage Of A Nation Turns On D.C.

"The legislative department is everywhere extending the sphere of its activity and drawing all power into its impetuous vortex." --James Madison, Federalist No. 48

It has become so painfully clear over the years just how slow the government wheels turn, unless of course, they want something.  Right now they want Obamacare passed while the Nation is adamant that this NOT happen.  Congress is at a loss to explain why the Citizens of this Country are speaking out against them and against their bad policies.  They are used to their ivory towers and cannot grasp the simple facts that We the People are awake, watching, and not at all happy with their shenanigans.  Of course, living in that ivory tower, far removed from the Citizens they are supposed to serve, life looks different.  They seem to consider themselves the Lords and Ladies of the current day instead of mere representatives of We the People.  They cannot understand that they have fallen from the grace they bestowed upon themselves.  But the rumblings within their walls cannot be ignored completely.  Their mighty castle is cracking at the seams.  The voice of the Nation steadily drowning out their voices and weakening the walls within which they have secured themselves.

For the love of a fiat currency these foolish mortal men and women think they can continue with business as usual, except that business as usual is meeting extreme resistance rarely encountered before.  The voices of We the People are getting through.  Corporations long used to buying their way with lawmakers are finding support within Congress for their desires, non-healthcare, absent border security, etc., more and more difficult to pass normally and more back doors are being searched for.

Obama is determined to pass his bad healthcare agenda.  He has stated more than once that it will be his defining mark, his blaze of glory as acting POTUS.  He is used to getting what he wants, forcing through what others do not support.  Now who is drinking the Kool-Aid?

DOCTOR’S ORDERS

Anger at Washington reaches full steam

Millions of Americans urged to ‘drive stake through the heart’ of Obamacare

Anger at Washington reaches full steam
Millions of Americans urged to ‘drive stake through the heart’ of Obamacare

The level of intense anger at Washington is heating up as several high-profile groups are calling on millions of Americans to slam Congress with phone calls, e-mails and faxes demanding that lawmakers vote “no” on the health-care bill.

As WND reported, reforms pushed by President Obama and other Democrats may be approved without ever actually having a direct vote, but could be “deemed” to have been passed and then signed into law by Obama. The process is called the “Slaughter Strategy,” named for Rep. Louise Slaughter, D-N.Y., who chairs the House Rules Committee.

The things that pass for legal in congress today is amazing. I am of the opinion that there should be a group formed to examine every bill passed in the past 50 years, repeal those that are blatantly Unconstitutional, stop the illegal wars we are perpetuating, and take back the power that Congress and the acting/previous POTUS (plural), have usurped for themselves.  This group should NOT contain any lawyers, (except to consult), nor any judges, federal agents, big pharma or big biotech agents, just average, intelligent Citizens.

You just can't fix stupid!

Trying to minimize the rage of a Nation; congress and the rest of the federal government resort to name calling and finger-pointing at We the People. They call us either right of left wing radicals and have perverted the meaning of “Patriot.” But a rage of a whole Nation coming at them with momentum building… Now, I could understand one or two groups being called such, but not EVERYONE of us!  Our Veterans, mothers, youth groups, etc. are being labeled terrorists because we refuse to let yet another bad bill go through.

Remember No Child Left Behind?  What a disaster that is and yet when they passed it they promised to fix it later.  Congress never fixes anything.  Now teachers spend all their time prepping students for tests instead of teaching them how to think.  But that works for the feds now doesn’t it?  Remember NAFTA??  Ya, that has worked out so well for Americans too!  Jobs being exported left and right.  Or  the bank and insurance bailouts for those who created the problems of our economy in the first place.  Rewarding these idiots has been close to the last straw for many Citizens.  How about those awesome voting machines that can be manipulated to change voters votes?  What part of congress acting against We the People isn’t clear?  And they wonder why we are Angry?  They are acting as though We the People work for them instead of it being the other way around.  Time to change that mentality and get our country back on track.

American Citizens are far too aware of how congress fixes things that are utter failures and totally broken; they ignore them.  We’ve had a gut-full of policies aimed at making the rich get richer, and the poor, poorer.  We are sick and tired of congress and the acting pres throwing OUR money at everyone else and giving US nothing but more debt, fewer jobs, an unstable economy, worthless currency, and continuing business as usual, lining their own pockets while robbing ours.  Soon they will feel our wrath as the elections come up and those currently in office find themselves out of a job and barred from ever running again.  Gone are the days when those elected officials could do as they please.  The sleepers have awakened!

Health-care vote forces Obama to cancel trip

Posted by Gremil Alessandro Naz on Mar 18th

On Thursday, President Barack Obama called off an overseas trip in a high-stakes bid to sway a handful of fence-sitting Democrats who control the fate of health-care reform as the US Congress moves toward a series of final votes on the landmark $940-billion bill.The House of Representatives is now aiming for a possible Sunday vote on legislation that could define Obama’s presidency and cement the fate—for better or worse—of Democrats in this November’s midterm elections.

We have to keep pushing. There is nothing else we can do. Raising our voices as loud as we can to help the hearing in-pared there in Washington. None of us realized we were hiring handicapped workers when we voted these men and women into office. We thought they actually were going to keep their word, keep their oaths, and work for We the People.

Our Constitution is very clear how bills are to be passed.  This “Slaughter Strategy” is totally illegal and flies in the face of our Nation’s founding document which is very specific about it.

Article 1 – The Legislative Branch
Section 7 – Revenue Bills, Legislative Process, Presidential Veto

Every Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States; If he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his Objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the Objections at large on their Journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after such Reconsideration two thirds of that House shall agree to pass the Bill, it shall be sent, together with the Objections, to the other House, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by two thirds of that House, it shall become a Law. But in all such Cases the Votes of both Houses shall be determined by Yeas and Nays, and the Names of the Persons voting for and against the Bill shall be entered on the Journal of each House respectively. If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law, in like Manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their Adjournment prevent its Return, in which Case it shall not be a Law.

No where is this “Slaughter Solution/Strategy defined.  NO WHERE!  I’ve looked and looked but it doesn’t exist for us to read the full extent of this attempt at circumventing our Constitution.  To my mind, this very act of subterfuge makes this bill and any resulting acts of congress or the acting POTUS null and void. If, they should use this method to enact this legislation any court challenge should make it clear that congress cannot act against the Constitution, at least we hope.

I decided to look for Ms. Slaughter’s website to contact her personally.  You can contact her HERE: While I added my name and email addy, I left out my address on purpose to see if the email would go through.  It does.  I left her my comment asking her how she could break the oath she took to uphold the Constitution of this nation and what I thought of her actions concerning healthcare reform.  Do your part and make yourself heard, as nicely as you can, please.

I did find a video clip of Rush Limbaugh discussing this.  However, he doesn’t know much more about it than any of the rest of us.  I also found a vote count for yea or nay on the “Slaughter Solution” but couldn’t find either of my Senators on either the yea or nay vote list.  Are they lazy?  I certainly begin to think so.  To find out if your Senator voted and which way they voted, click HERE:
