The Ruling Elite vs. The Rest of us

S. Lindsey's picture

This has been bugging me for some time. First.. This Healthcare Bill.. Right , Wrong, Left or Right we all agree Healthcare is important..
The question here is.. Do we NEED the Government to get involved..
Due to regulations CREATED by the Government we cannot cross State Lines to have a true competitive market in the Healthcare industry.

Interstate Competition in the Individual Health Insurance Marketplace

My last few blogs here chronicled the waste, abuse and just downright incompetence of the Federal Government. Many stated they could show that the Government has programs that function according to plan and budget.. I am still waiting for them to post the list.
The problem is one of faith.. no not GOD.. but in our elected officials. We have little to none. Why..? It could be because of all the Lies..

“What I've said is I want to provide a tax cut for 95 percent of working Americans, 95 percent…if you make less than a quarter million dollars a year, then you will not see your income tax go up, your capital gains taxes go up, your payroll tax. Not one dime. “ SEE the video

Read my lips: no more taxes

“I actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it.”

So for the most part all of them lie.. To themselves

Obama Shamelessly Lies During NH Town Hall: "I Never Said I Support a Single-Payer System"....

and to us…

Some of the issue is also the ELITE status I believe they think they deserve it.. You hear these guys at some of the Town Hall meetings.. Their “I know more than you..” attitude is loud and clear. They forget they just won a popularity contest not that it made them the smartest people on Earth.
For an example of that truthism .. Just look at Pelosi.. Can’t get much dumber.. I mean really.. Calling out the CIA.. You know the people that have made certain other people disappear!!
Getting back to the Healthcare debate.. Another example of elitism is Congress opting out of the Public Option.. The bill has all kinds of caveats for you and I if we try to change our providers we immediately are forced into the “Public” one, however Congress is exempt from the provisions..

Rep. Tsongas tries to explain why Congress is exempt from Obamacare. Fails.


Here is where I think it’s The Ruling Class vs. The Rest of us..
They truly feel they deserve more.. They deserve unquestioned loyalty..
How dare we question them or their Dear Leader Obama.. We see it on these blogs.. Progressives getting upset that we are questioning Obama and Congresses motives. They truly feel they are the Ruling Class and we should submit. After all they are more Intelligent then you and I.. They know what is best for us..

“I will vote adamantly against the interests of my district if I actually think what I am doing is going to be helpful ... I will vote against their opinion if I actually believe it will help them,” Massa said.

Again the “Ruling” elite.. knows what is good for us.. and the MSM is silent.
If you disagree with Obama you are called: Whackos, Teabaggers (the derogatory type) Racist, Rednecks, Right Wingnutters, Evil Mongers and now related to the Taliban.. You know that group that just killed 6 Americans this week.
So protesters.. Well let me get it straight.. Obama’s Healthcare Protesters, Congress out of control spending protesters have all been equated to MURDERERS.

What happened to FREE SPEECH?
Pelosi said we are UN-AMERICAN?!?
Harry Reid said we are “EVIL MONGERS”?!?
Obama dismissed us as “Teabaggers”?!?
They are all calling us “ASTRO-TURF”?!?
All the while ACORN and SEIU protestors are being bused in to confront the real protestors starting fights and staging publicity stunts.
Why is this happening in America today August 2009.. Why are the 1st, 2nd and 10th Amendments being attacked?
Why are the Ruling Elite.. Ignoring the “REST” of us.. The majority of Americans do not want this Healthcare Bill.. at least not as proposed or leaked out. So why are they telling us “you are going to have it and we know better”.
November 2010 may well be the most important date in recent History. I believe it will be imperative to remove the “Ruling” class of both parties and let them go find another job.. and oh by the way good luck finding one in the mess of the Economy they made.
America is the GREATIST country on the face of the Earth. You don’t have to believe it because enough of us do.. Being a Patriot is sometimes not an easy thing nor is it in vogue to be one. Standing up is often times hard. Speaking out harder still, but we will and we are. We will continue to fight what we see is a dangerous path towards a way of life best left to others. Men and Women have shed blood and died for our RIGHTS. To abrogate those rights and conform is not the American way. It was not our Founding Fathers way.. and it’s sure as Hell not my way

"If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no resource left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government, and which against the usurpations of the national rulers, may be exerted with infinitely better prospect of success than against those of the rulers of an individual state. In a single state, if the persons intrusted with supreme power become usurpers, the different parcels, subdivisions, or districts of which it consists, having no distinct government in each, can take no regular measures for defense. The citizens must rush tumultuously to arms, without concert, without system, without resource; except in their courage and despair."

In the words of Dick Morris: "...they act as though they rule rather than represent.".

Lindsey, will add further comments on this later. It's Sunday and there's grass to cut. If I don't get the spouse off the couch now, the day will be gone. Gotta crack that whip!!! Smiling

OMG, you gotta be s***ing me! You are quoting Dick Morris, that bastion of moral behavior who on August 29, 1996, resigned from the Clinton campaign after reports surfaced that he had been involved with a prostitute. A New York newspaper obtained and published a set of photographs of Morris and the woman on a Washington, D.C., hotel balcony. Morris had invited her to listen in on his conversations with President Clinton trying to impress her. There were also reports of foot fetishism and sexual roleplay between Morris and the prostitute, specifically that Morris had proclivities for toe-sucking and regaling Ms. Rowlands with a rendition of "Popeye the Sailor Man" while clad in boxer shorts. This is who you reference? JEEZ!

So you better start right away..

Is Dick Morris President of the Morals club, or how about head of a Church?

So let me get this straight.. IF a person has some questionable moral lapses say 10 years ago or so.. That makes them forever un-worthy of comment ever?

btr.. Let me make sure I get your logic.. If someone has ever done ANYTHING in their past which constitutes a "MORAL" wrong then they should be forever silent and anything they ever said or will say shall be chucked out like the morning garbage..

I await your background information.. Surely to make such a statement you must be pure.. Have you tried for Sainthood yet? I hear the Pope can help with that..

Wow.. I guess it's time for you guys to tell Bill to shut up.. Go ahead I will be listening..

But it doesn't change the fact that he was dead-on when he said this:

"...they act as though they rule rather than represent.".

You can rightfully ridicule the messenger but... You can't dispute the messsage.

Obama's health care plan will be written by a committee whose head says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn't read it, signed by a president who smokes, funded by a treasury chief who did not pay his taxes, overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that is nearly broke. WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?

Git, I agree that he made some really bad personal decisions but that doean't make him a total idiot. I think he's got a pretty good grasp on the political vibrations of the current administration. And toes just ain't my thing!

Hmmmmm.... I might oughta rephrase that subject line.

I agree Gym. Morris and his strategic and manipulative campaign tactics coupled with his ability to 'read' the voters and gauge their political temperature at any point in a campaign was astonishing as evidenced by his contributions to Clintons victory. I listen to him occasionally and am astonished by his political brilliance. That said, he is still a creepy little sleaze. LOL!

Well you see, conservatives (or wannabees) are for their counterparts no matter what in everything!
They do not select from the whole to get at the good parts----it is all good due to their mouth.

Lindsey, first let me say that the issue of Dick Morris seems to be a distraction from the truth of your original post. That was not my intention. See....I have this strange habit of referencing those whom I quote so as not to misrepresent their words as my own. Those words as spoken by Mr. Morris were completely relevant to the conversation.

Personally, I don't care if he tucks it between his legs while singing Polyanna under a waxing moon.....the words mean the same. Now how's that for imagery? LOL.

An acquaintance loaned me a book recently, Mark R. Levin's "Liberty and Tyranny". I finally picked it up last night and prior to opening the book I turned it over to the back cover. Here is another very relevant quote:

"We all declare for liberty; but in using the same word we do not all mean the same thing. With some the word liberty may mean for each man to do as he pleases with himself, and the product of his labor; while with others, the same word may mean for some men to do as they please with other men, and the product of other men's labor. Here are two, not only different, but incompatible things, called by the same name - liberty. And it follows that each of the things is, by the respective parties, called by two different and incompatible names - liberty and tyranny." - Abraham Lincoln, 1864

Now, at the time when Lincoln so eloquently spoke these words, he was referencing slavery. However, truths not only remain self evident but also unchanged by time or circumstance. Whether the issue is one of slavery and tyranny against a race or slavery and tyranny against a class, those words are as true today as they were then.

Oh, and disregard Bonkers, he knows not of THAT which he speaks. Face it....he don't know Dick!!!
