Eric Odom is one of the founders of the Chicago Tea Party movement
I don’t normally get this emotional when writing a newsletter, so I’ll have to apologize ahead of time. This is an emotional evening for me.
It’s 10:12 PM here in Chicago. I just watched a room full of Democrats (and one Republican) clap and cheer as they realized they had the votes needed to pass Nancy Pelosi’s healthcare legislation.
I honestly don’t think I’ve felt this angry in years. I can’t imagine how a room full of people elected to look out for our rights as Americans can so comfortably vote to strip us of them.
And worse, clap and cheer about their success in doing so.
I’m not sure if these thugs are just sick with power and look for complete control, or if they’re so heavily struck with narcissism that they genuinely don’t understand what it is that they’re doing.
But either way, this legislation seeks to destroy everything that made our country great. This bill rips from us our personal liberty, our reason for hard work, our drive for productivity, and our ability to be free in our personal responsibility.
Should this legislation pass the Senate, we Americans will be forced to choose healthcare that is run by a government of thugs and power hungry special interest shrills. And if we refuse, we’ll face up to $250,000 in fines and up to 5 years in jail.
At this point in time, I feel the urge to begin considering the reality of what we’re up against. I no longer have any desire to be politically correct. It’s time to start recognizing this for what it is.
Our Government, a body made up of powerful people entrusted to protect our liberty and freedom, has openly declared war on us.
If this legislation passes the Senate… I pray God will help us all.
Much to think about, folks. Much to consider.
From the Declaration of Independence
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world”.
