Americans Are Frightened and Angry
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
spoke to a friend recently, the owner of a small business in my neck of
the swamp. He told me business was, for all intents and purposes, dead. He volunteered that he could trace the drop off in sales to approximately the time America became
"aware" of Obamacare, around mid October of 2013.
As we discussed the mess America is in, he volunteered the following: "J. D.," he said, "People are scared to death!"
We spoke of how people were holding on to so-called disposable income,
money they would have readily spent on things that would have made life
more pleasant for themselves and their families. Earmarked money for
projects for the home and business, too, is being held back.
October, average Americans have finally zeroed-in on what Obamacare
means for them, their families, and their way of life as well, as the
effect it is already having on the country they love.
They are more than a little troubled.
are holding on to the money they have for fear they they will have no
insurance, or no insurance they can count on, when they really need
it. To these Americans, Obamacare is not a blessing. No. It is a CURSE!
They are angry. It is an anger that is deepening by the day into a white hot rage. They are asking: "Who did this to me, to my family, to my country?" Quickly, they surmise the answer -- the Democratic Party and Obama.
There is no other answer, not even another partial answer. Obamacare
was and remains solely a power grab by the democrats without a single
republican voting for it or supporting it. There is no question as to whom their anger must be directed.
last time Americans were this angry, they were colonists and the
government to which they were tethered was across the Atlantic, in
England, and paid no mind to the “disgruntled” Americans. Today the
government is in Washington, DC. Frankly, little else has changed!
The end result of the first scenario above was revolution. The end result of the second scenario above may be the same thing!
are hearing and reading the word “Revolution,” frequently, these
days. It is being used more and more by Americans in daily
conversations and especially on the Internet, by bloggers, and everyday
folks who comment on those bog sites.
have had all they are going to take from a government that gives all
indications that it simply doesn’t care what we Americans (their
constituents) think, or what we want, or what we do not want. We
never intended a “rogue” government such as we have today. We will not abide a rogue government such as we have today.
is an unfortunate truth that our government has grown far, far, too
big, far, far too powerful, and no longer represents the people of The
We have a bunch of Socialists, Marxists,
Progressives/Communists, and only God, Himself, knows what else ruling
over us today. I don’t know who they represent -- but they do not
represent the American people.
That Obamacare bill the
democrats passed through Congress is going to break the country and
destroy the world’s finest healthcare system.
57% of us said NO; we’d rather have no healthcare bill at all than have that monstrosity.
Yet the dems rammed it through, anyway. Well, the fight is NOT
completely over -- and believe me when I say -- we are going to fight
for an eventual repeal of the Affordable Care Act -- aka -- Obamacare.
It took thirteen years to repeal Prohibition. Believe me when I tell
you we have only just begun to fight.
Pollsters tell us that 66%
of Americans want smaller government and fewer government services. Is
Congress paying attention? NO. Even if they had heard us, they would
have shrugged it off and continued on their merry way.
recall a time -- in my lifetime -- when America was in worse shape. I
have NEVER seen it in worse shape -- and that includes all the wars in
We have a President so inept that it is unbelievable -- and yet he would rule by fiat. We have a Congress, which has gone rogue and set itself up as an oligarchy in which all power is vested in them as the dominant class or clique. America now has government by the few. It sounds very much like the conditions the colonists found themselves in prior to the Revolutionary War.
These are serious times, indeed, dangerous times in America.
November of 2014, democrats will be driven from office by waves of
wrathful, angry, just plain MAD Americans who wish election day were
It will take decades, possibly even a generation
(or even two) to correct the damage Obama and the democrats have done to
