Reacting to House passage of the so-called health care reform bill late Sunday night, Republican Congressman Pete King said, "Today the work begins to repeal Obamacare and restore the principles of liberty that made America a great nation. The American people must take their country back by methodically eliminating every vestige of creeping socialism, including socialized medicine. The Pelosi Democrats will pay a price for their overreach. This fight is far from over."
I hope not, but the signs are not good. Without a conservative revolution in this country, we are doomed. The liberal socialists in Congress and the White House have conceived of a new entitlement program that will addict millions more Americans to government. They will be robbed of their freedom and lose incentive.
Once a federal program has begun, it is nearly impossible to end it.
Fewer among us remember the values handed down by our parents and grandparents. We are in debt to nations that want to destroy us, but we may destroy ourselves before they get the chance.
