Democracy at work

As the dramatic tragedy that is socialized health care continues to be played out before our eyes, remember that this is democracy at work.

This is the reason soldiers are dying in foreign lands -- to force democracy on the rest of the world. And what has this vaunted democracy gotten us? Socialism.

We used to be a republic based on a constrained state. But we have changed into an empire based on an ever-increasing state.

Here is what I say to all those Republicans who supported Bush's wars: Do not question the outcome of a democratic vote on health care. Because if you do, you will be turning your backs on the soldiers fighting for your beloved democracy -- the unconstrained tyranny of the majority.

For those who desire supposedly free health care: Don't come crying to me when your beloved state denies you the same.

Is this the end of the experiment in liberty that began some 235 years ago?

Well stated! I have yet to hear a coherent explanation as to how "democracy", based on its accepted definition, is in any way different from Marx's "dictatorship of the proletariat."

One might also add the following to your list:

"Do not complain when those 'representatives' for whom you voted, who also 'represent' hundreds of thousands of others with opinions and demands diametrically opposed to yours and who may constitute a majority, enact legislation that goes against your best interests and your wallet. Remember, this is 'democracy' in action, so quit complaining and get behind the majority!"

From "The Hill" newsletter blog, in response the Dems passing Obamacare:

"Something very odd happened after the voting of this Bill. The earth did not stop moving and we were not vaporized off the face of the earth. No death panels were knocking on my door, either. Could it be that the Republicans were telling us lies, again?"

"Carol, people die everyday in their sleep. No noise, no convulsions...just a last gasp of breath and they're gone. Such we have witnessed in the passing of Liberty, as we all painfully listened to the sound of the plug as it was pulled."
