And it is getting serious. Nancy Pelosi has basically asked the democrats to sacrifice their careers on the altar of “Comprehensive Health Care.” Saying the following:
Lawmakers sometimes must enact policies that, even if unpopular at the moment, will help the public, Pelosi said in an interview being broadcast Sunday the ABC News program “This Week.”
“We’re not here just to self-perpetuate our service in Congress,” she said. “We’re here to do the job for the American people.
But the American people do not want it and if they do this reconcilition, she knows it is an end to many a legislative career. They will be voted Out. Poll after poll shows they are going against the will of the people, with about 80% disapproval of the Congress.
She is asking them to “drink the KoolAid” for what she and the Obama Administration perceives to be the greater good. Will they do it?
Some 30 years ago, the progressives of San Francisco embraced Jim Jones and his People’s Temple and vice versa. He was associated with many familiar names like Jimmy Carter, Mondale, Former Mayor of San Francisco, Willie Brown and others. See how San Francisco liberal elite was captivated by Jim Jones.
“It was raw politics. He was able to deliver what politicians want, which is power. And how do you get power? By votes. And how do you get votes? With people. Jim Jones could produce 3,000 people at a political event.”
“Before he became infamous for leading 913 people to their deaths [by instructing them to drink a KoolAid mixture laced with poison] in the Guyanese jungle, the Rev. Jim Jones was the darling of San Francisco’s liberal establishment — a man who could spread the wealth to all the fashionable charities and, at a moment’s notice, marshal thousands of followers for a good cause.”
He for the most part enjoyed a fawning press as well, although some were sounding warnings and alarms but apparently nobody listened.
“The Rev. Mr. Jones had just completed what were said to be two resuscitations of parishioners who had either fainted or gone into catatonic stiffenings in the general excitement.”
Faintings? Sound familiar?
There are parallels.
He offered his people The Great Utopia, providing shelter and health care, food and they were good but too gullible people. They wanted to be cared for and provided for. He offered them sustenance but delivered death. He promised them Utopia, but delivered hell. They called him Father, and even thanked him as they were drinking the poison. See this You Tube just to prove that this was for real and not some opinion or wild story. http://www.youtube.com/watch#v=ij1GaFT-kQM&feature=related and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJFaqrU3HfQ&feature=related Warning: It is very disturbing to listen to but what happened, happened. (I see You Tube/Google is “protecting us” by making it difficult to get to these.)
The American people do not want a Father figure. We would prefer freedom to provisions. We prefer life to death.
Do we have any democrats who for the sake of honor or even for pride want to go down in history as heroes for saving America?
Words of Wisdom: If we don’t learn from history, we will repeat it. The definition of insanity is repeating the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.
