Have you heard the news? Republicans in the House of Representatives and the Senate voted for, and passed, complete and total repeal of Obamacare. Awesome, right? Not really. I don’t mean passing measures to limit it, or defund it, or alter it, or call it dirty names, that stuff has happened over forty times………..no, I mean complete repeal. The only problem with this news is that this happened way back in December of 2015.
Cue the clowns: Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and the rest of the Grand Ole Puppet Show then waddled in front of the cameras to proudly announce that they had “kept their promise” and repealed O-care. Too bad that it would never survive Obama’s veto pen……….and too bad that the Republicans, all of them, knew that before they even voted. They also knew that most people are dumb and have the memory of goldfish, so for them, it was a big win……for the rest of us, not so much.
You may have heard that the Republicans just “weren’t prepared” for repealing Obamacare, or that the “White House is in disarray” and they can’t stop their overthrow of an elected president…..oops! I mean Russia investigations……long enough to do what they evidently had no problem doing, repeatedly, while Obama was in office. I’ll tell you what they weren’t prepared for: Trump winning, that’s what. In the whirlwind of fake news and political assassination since last November, what has been buried and lost is that the entire world expected Hillary Clinton to be president…….I mean, she corrupted her way to the top, she paid her bribes…….oops again! I mean dues……hostile foreign entities had already bought her off through the Clinton Foundation, etc……so why would Congressional Republicans be any different?
The reason the Republicans can’t repeal Obamacare is simple……they don’t want to. Sure, all of the puppets in the show are playing their parts, the “conservatives” want this, the “moderates” want that, blah-blah-blah, but the truth is that they didn’t stop it when they could have, like the Progressives are stopping things now, because Obamacare is the greatest expansion of government power in United States history, and the people we have in Congress are the government, so why would you expect them to limit themselves? It’s time for people to realize once and for all that the days of there being “conservatives” and “liberals” are over – if they ever even existed – and that now there is only the Progressive Establishment. There are different levels of that Establishment, yes…….but on a whole it is unified in its permanent bureaucratic control over us…….and it’s falling apart because of the election of Donald Trump. What you are seeing in the Media and reading in National Review and the New York Times is testament.
All of this leads me to make one point. If you consider yourself, conservative or Republican, you may be upset that your views aren’t being represented….and you’re right. I have good and bad news for you, bad news first: What you define as “conservative” is no longer applicable to the future of American politics. The numbers just aren’t there, especially when you realize that Millennials are now the largest single voting bloc. Now for the good news: there are millions out there like me, and we represent a revival and reinvigoration of the American Spirit and all that it represents – individual liberty, legal immigration, property rights, capitalism, personal responsibility, and a chauvinism about what is American Culture and Western Civilization…….and why it is better than anything else that has ever come before. We agree on more than we don’t, I’d wager. People like John McCain, who has served himself in congress for 35 years (!!) and Lindsey Graham, who has done the same for 25 years, are not the future……they are the pitiable past. They are “The Swamp”, and they don’t understand that a train is coming, and the choice is between getting on board, getting out of the way……..or getting run down under its wheels.
