The above video hit my inbox a day ago and serves to remind us all of a real danger America faces: squishy, “moderate” Republicans. Look, we know what we have with the Obama regime, and his Congress. They are all hard core communists, hellbent on grabbing as much power as possible, and destroying the very fabric of American society, hoping to replace it all with their sick vision of life and government. As horrifying as that is, at least we know it, and can fight it. There should be no delusions about who these Marxist-democrats are.
On the other hand, many people see “Republican” and think “conservative” which can be very dangerous. While real conservatives believe in the Constitution and the Rule of Law, these squishy establishment Republicans, like Lisa Murkowski, have no real solid principles, and end up being nothing more than enablers for the Marxist-democrats who are destroying our nation. Many are all too eager to help, so they can say they are “bi-partisan” and call themselves “statesmen.”
At the height of the ObamaCare debacle, every Republican was shouting they would indeed make repealing this unconstitutional boondoggle their first act upon taking over Congress. Now we are starting to see the usual suspects backing off of this stance.
While this video is rather short and cuts Senator Murkowski off, it served as a reminder of the great piece Stacy Drake wrote earlier this month on the occasion of Sarah Palin endorsing Murkoski’s opponent Judge Joe Miller, the former Superior Court Master from Fairbanks.
Lisa’s entire statement was:
Repealing this is not the answer in my opinion, because if you just repeal and you do nothing, we will not have addressed health care reform.
Now this is nonsense, as the conservative Republicans have a solid plan that uses market based solutions to bring about much needed reform, including law suit reform. (tort) The conservative Republicans always had a solid, workable plan. It’s ready to go, ready to replace ObamaCare, the second it’s repealed.
Repealing and replacing ObamaCare with a workable solution is the only way to retain quality health care for all Americans. As we read every day, more and more problems are being found with this insane piece of legislation, that absolutely no one read before voting on, and Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, proclaimed “we’ll have to pass to see what’s in it.”
We are learning that health care costs are about to rise greatly, and many employers are looking to discontinue coverage for their employees, due to draconian taxation and regulation brought about by this immoral legislation.
The very idea that Lisa Murkowski views ObamaCare as a “work in progress” is both incredibly troubling and totally distasteful.
This isn’t the first time Lisa Murkowski has sided with the Obama regime over common sense. As Stacy Drake noted,Lisa had this to say about Sarah Palin’s famous “death panels” statement that turned the health care debate on it’s ear:
It does us no good to incite fear in people by saying that there’s these end-of-life provisions, these death panels … Quite honestly, I’m so offended at that terminology because it absolutely isn’t (in the bill). There is no reason to gin up fear in the American public by saying things that are not included in the bill.
Now this is rather pathetic and ignorant on Murkoski’s part, on several levels. For one thing, no one can turn a phrase better than Sarah Palin. She has an extraordinary ability to take a rather involved subject, and distill it down to just a few simple words that say it all. Ronald Reagan called the Soviet Union an “evil empire” George Bush referred to an “axis of evil” when describing our enemies. Important issues require powerful words, and none were more powerful in 2009 than “death panels.”
It’s very interesting to note that while every conservative understood almost instinctively what Sarah was talking about: health care RATIONING, the squishy, establishment Republicans got it wrong every single time. They all went on and on about “end of life counseling” a provision where doctors are required to talk to older people, presumably in the last stages of life, about options. As troubling as that is unto itself, it had nothing to do with what Sarah was saying.
When Sarah introduced the world to the phrase “death panels” she also went on to talk about health care rationing, as well as Obama’s very own “Dr Mengele,” Ezekiel Emanuel who authored the “Complete Lives System” a sickening tome that lays out in detail who “deserves” health care, and who doesn’t.
Under ObamaCare, unelected bureaucrats will sit on panels and decide who will and who won’t get care, and by law, there will be no appeal. If that’s not a “death panel” then what the hell is?
To me this shows an incredible amount of ignorance on Murkowski’s part that she didn’t understand what most people got right away. You’d think a United States Senator would possess a minimum amount of reading comprehension skills, but I guess not.
The real problem here though is Murkowski, like the other establishment Republicans, actually likes Big Government, and doesn’t see a problem with ObamaCare, which is the biggest government power grab in the history of our Republic. I find this the biggest danger of all, and why we must send these establishment Republican squishes packing. They’ve enabled the Marxist-democrats in their quest to destroy America enough already.
Thankfully, there is a solid alternative, Joe Miller.
Miller, who has a unique and compelling life story, has been endorsed, most notably, by Sarah Palin, the Tea Party Express, Red State’s Erick Erickson, Dr. Christie Eberhard, the President of Alaska Right to Life, as well as many more listed here.
Joe Miller is a solid, common sense, constitutional conservative. In order to save our nation, we simply must rid ourselves not only of Marxist-democrats, but squishy establishment Republicans as well. We must elect men and women who believe in the Rule of Law, and understand that our Constitution is the supreme law of the land.
Let’s help send Joe Miller to Washington, and Lisa Murkowski packin’!
