Repeal Obamacare Or We Replace You

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

    Hollis: “Instead, they (the press) turned a blind eye, even when they knew he was lying, abusing power, disregarding the limits of the Constitution. It was only when he began to spy on them (the Fox News James Rosen case), and when the lies were so blatant that the lowest of low-information voters could figure it out that they realized they had to report on it… ”

    Or, really? Yes, they reported on the James Rosen spying…they had to. Fox wouldn’t let that one go. But, after the initial flurry, anything of note that would deter the Obama Admin’s future such adventures? But, does anyone remember Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News? She had done some hardhitting reporting on Benghazi and “Fast and Furious”, very damaging to the Administration and had attracted very public denunciation from Obama administration figures. Attkisson, around the time of the Rosen revelations, disclosed that her computer at her home had been hacked and material related to her news reporting had been compromised. On Fox’s Bill O’Reilly, she said that she was pretty sure she knew the party which had hacked her computer but would wait until investigations by top flight computer experts Attkisson had hired and another hired by CBS were completed. There was some seemingly pretty valid speculation that the hacking was done by government agencies.
    But, since those revelations some months ago, very, very, little has been reported on this case. In fact, the only reporter who seems to be tracking it at all is Erik Wemple of the WashPost blog. His latest update , in November, sheds little additional light on this matter.
    So…what’s the deal? A huge story about our federal government intimidating media figures who report things it doesn’t like, or a reporter overly anxious to be a part of a breaking story?
    I have my guess. What’s yours?
