Laura Hollis is an attorney and teaches entrepreneurship and business law at the University of Notre Dame. She wrote an outstanding article titled Obamacare Should Remind Us We Are Not ‘Subjects,’ We Are People for the November 20th, 2013 Christian Post. It is one of the “best” articles we have come across this year in terms of focusing and motivating conservatives.
The excerpt we set forth is just the introduction along with a mere recitation of six points that Ms Hollis makes in the body of her article, all of which are elaborated on in an authoritative and compelling way. Read the entire op-ed here. Thanks to DP for bringing this article to our attention.
“The unveiling of the dictatorial debacle that is Obamacare absolutely flabbergasts me. It is stunning on so many levels, but the most shocking aspect of it for me is watching millions of free Americans stand idly by while this man, his minions in Congress and his cheerleaders in the press systematically dismantle our Constitution, steal our money, and crush our freedoms.
The President, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid (with no small help from Justice John Roberts) take away our health care, and we allow it. They take away our insurance, and we allow it. They take away our doctors, and we allow it. They charge us thousands of dollars more a year, and we allow it. They make legal products illegal, and we allow it. They cripple our businesses, and we allow it. They announce by fiat that we must ignore our most deeply held beliefs – and we allow it.
Where is your spine, America?
Yes, I know people are complaining. I read the news on the internet. I read blogs. I have a Twitter feed. So what? People in the Soviet Union complained. People in Cuba complain. People in China complain (quietly). Complaining isn’t the same thing as doing anything about it. In fact, much of the complaining that we hear sounds like resignation: Wow. This sucks. Oh well, this is the way things are. Too bad.”
1. The President is not a king.
2. It isn’t just a failed software program; it is a failed philosophy.
3. Obama is deceitful.
4. The media is responsible
5. Ted Cruz was right. So was Sarah Palin.
6. We are not SUBJECTS.
Hollis concludes: The 2014 elections are a good place to start. Call your representative, your senator, your candidate and tell them: “We are not subjects. You work for us. And if the word “REPEAL” isn’t front and center in your campaign, we won’t vote for you. Period.”
We could not agree more. In Iowa the 2014 election process starts Tuesday January 21 with the caucuses. At that time conservatives can make their voices heard, putting on notice the entire political apparatus. R Mall
