Obama's Progressive Reign of Tyranny over America

This afternoon I was watching some of the "debate" on Harry Reid's 343 page amendment to the 2,074 page so-called Health Care Bill.
Dr. Tom Coburn, a Senator and a practicing medical doctor, was speaking. He put up a quotation from Thomas Jefferson. I may have copied the quotation down incorrectly regarding the order of the wording but the essence is clear.
Compelling a man to propagate with his taxes ideas in which he does not believe and abhors is sinful and tyrannical. ~ Thomas Jefferson
To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical. from Thomas Jefferson
How many things, situations, or conditions (regulations/dictates) have been put into play by the current Administration since January 20th when Mr. Obama became our president that are sinful, tyrannical, and well beyond the bounds of the U.S. Constitution?

Was the government to prescribe to us our medicine and diet, our bodies would be in such keeping as our souls are now. ~ Thomas Jefferson

Our nation is in grave danger. We all know it and yet the extreme, fundamentalist Democrat leadership on Capital Hill and in the White House seem driven to destroy our way of life. Our way of free enterprise; of turning our inherent individual freedom into group domination over the individual; of turning individual responsibility and personal accountability into total governmental domination and control over our every move from cradle to grave.
Decades ago, I half-heartily quipped to a colleague that a day would come in America when the federal government would decide how much money we would be allowed to keep of what we had earned and we would no longer have freedom. We would be "wards" of the state.
I never really believed I would live to see that day in America.
One more issue about the yoke of slavery pervasive in "Health Care" reform along with the billions of dollars in grant money to train nurses in accordance with government curriculum. Why all the frenzy to "get it done and get it done now?" Because they have more in store for us. Citizenship for illegal immigrants.
With all of the financial numbers that are being floated around, how much do you think the health care will really cost when Obama, Pelosi, and Reid legalize and give citizenship to the 12,000,000 to 20,000,000 illegal immigrants who are here in 2010? Don't forget to add in their extended families.
Let's just annex Mexico... It can't be anymore corrupt there than it is here under unconstitutional Thugocracy and the tyranny of the czars.
A few more quotations from Thomas Jefferson:
I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.
An elective despotism was not the government we fought for.
A free people [claim] their rights as derived from the laws of nature, and not as the gift of their chief magistrate.
It is strangely absurd to suppose that a million of human beings, collected together, are not under the same moral laws which bind each of them separately.

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.

Most bad government has grown out of too much government.

I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just.

The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.

Were we directed from Washington when to sow and when to reap, we should soon want bread.

The god who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time: the hand of force may destroy, but cannot disjoin them.

Of liberty I would say that, in the whole plenitude of its extent, it is unobstructed action according to our will. But rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add “within the limits of the law,” because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual.

When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.

The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.

The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.

We must be ever vigilant. And now it seems even more so. As I mentioned in a post yesterday and, misguided as I may be, I stand by it:
I am an incurable optimist when it comes to the American people generally speaking. We are not into European Socialism; we are not communists; and we are not born to become socialists. It is not in our DNA.
I'm just saying, we are Americans and we have to man-up and solve our problems. We cannot allow our elite - in their own minds - to pull the rug of our U.S. Constitution and our freedoms right out from under us. We have to become engaged and we have to become educated. We must become an informed citizenry.
If we do not take our destiny into our own hands, we will increasingly leave ourselves open to the slavery that awaits us.
And in the midst of all of this jack-booted pressure being placed upon our necks, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Take care of your loved ones and God bless...
