Barack Obama, our next President

Obamacare is something new in American life: the creation of a massive bureaucracy charged with downsizing YOU — to a world of:

*fewer doctors
*higher premiums
*lousier care
*more debt
*fewer jobs
*smaller houses
*smaller cars
*smaller, fewer, less

…in a world where worse is the new normal.

Would Americans, hitherto the most buoyant and expansive of people, really consent to live such shrunken lives?

If so, mid-20th-century America and its assumptions of generational progress will be as lost to us as the Great Ziggurat of Ur was to 19th-century Mesopotamian date farmers.

George Orwell, after attending a meeting of impoverished but passive miners, remarked sadly that “there is no turbulence left in England.”

The Democrats, and much of the Republican establishment, have made a bet that there is no turbulence left in America, and the citizenry will stand mute before Obamacare’s wrecking ball. Unless they’re willing to accept a worse life for their children and grandchildren, middle-class Americans need to prove them wrong.

So if state says only people with jobs making 100K per year or own their home that will fly eh?

The bottom line it's all about suppressing the right to vote.

The middle-aged pasty white male(Flack, Galt, etc.) is doing everything he can to maintain power in the face of ever increasing numbers of minorities in this country.

This is what Liberals Teach your children to fail and their children succeed and get the grants that the Black face gets goes to the Children of the Suburban Liberals No wonder the American school system ranks lower than schools in some third world countries. One school in Mississippi wasted three days teaching middle schoolers about the accomplishments of thug rapper Jay Z.

The children were then tested on their knowledge about Jay-Z’s “resilience” and they were instructed to memorize the lyrics to his song “Big Pimpin”.

Of all the people to exemplify as a man of success and wealth, why choose a former crack dealer who still glorifies the gangster lifestyle in his songs?

John S. Carlile, a leader during the First Wheeling Convention

In Richmond on April 17, 1861, the 49 delegates from the future state of West Virginia voted 17 in favor of the Ordinance of Secession which provided for Virginia's secession from the Union, 30 voted against,[3] and two of those delegates abstained.[4] Almost immediately after the adoption of the ordinance a mass meeting at Clarksburg recommended that each county in north-western Virginia send delegates to a convention to meet in Wheeling on May 13, 1861.

When the First Wheeling Convention met, four hundred and twenty-five delegates from twenty-five counties were present, but soon there was a division of sentiment. Some delegates favored the immediate formation of a new state, while others argued that, as Virginia's secession had not yet been ratified or become effective, such action would constitute revolution against the United States.[5] It was decided that if the ordinance were adopted (of which there was little doubt) another convention including the members-elect of the legislature should meet at Wheeling in June.

At the election (May 23, 1861), secession was ratified by a large majority in the state as a whole. But, in the western counties that would form the state of West Virginia the vote was approximately 34,677 against and 19,121 for ratification of the Ordinance of Secession.

The Second Wheeling Convention met as agreed on June 11 and adopted "A Declaration of the People of Virginia." The document, drafted by former state senator John S. Carlile, declared that since the Secession Convention had been called without the consent of the people, all its acts were illegal. It further declared the pro-secession government in Richmond void and called for a reorganization of the state government, taking the line that all who adhered to the Ordinance of Secession had effectively vacated their offices. An act for the reorganization of the government was passed on June 19. The next day Francis H. Pierpont was chosen governor of the "Restored Government of Virginia," other officers were elected and the convention adjourned. The legislature, composed of the members from the western counties who had been elected on May 23 and some of the holdover senators who had been elected in 1859, met at Wheeling on July 1, filled the remainder of the state offices, completed the reorganization of the state government and elected two United States senators who were recognized by Washington. There were, therefore, two governments claiming to represent all of Virginia, one owing allegiance to the United States and one to the Confederacy.

There had been sentiment even before the war for the northwestern counties of Virginia to break away and form a new state. However, the federal Constitution did not allow a new state to be created out of an existing state unless the existing state's legislature gave its assent. The pro-northern Restored Government asserted its authority to give such approval, and authorized the creation of the state of Kanawha, consisting of most of the counties that now comprise West Virginia. A little over one month later, Kanawha was renamed West Virginia. The Wheeling Convention, which had taken a recess until August 6, reassembled on August 20 and called for a popular vote on the formation of a new state and for a convention to frame a constitution if the vote should be favorable.

How much more of your paycheck are you willing to part with "in the face of ever increasing numbers" of government dependents in this country?

Here's a hint: you haven't begun to approach paying your "fair share" if this liberal crap continues.

Hypocrite thy name is Dumbocrat.
Both WWII and the Vietnam war had a tax levied to help pay for them.

Republicans under Bush voted to expand medicare with the drug benefit -unfunded.

Obamacare saves money in the Medicare program,.
