Senate Hides Obama’s Energy Tax Bill from Debate
Yet another example of the left’s promised transparency. Senators Liebermann, Kerry and Graham have taken the Obama Energy Tax Bill and skipped taking it to a committee and handed it over to Senator Reid so when he deems the time is right, Reid can ram it down our throats and take more of our hard earned money. The promises of transparency are being disregarded on all fronts and nothing but quiet on this issue thus far from either side of the aisle.
Robert A. Heinlein said it best, “Secrecy is the keystone to all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy and censorship. When any government or church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, ‘This you may not read, this you must not know,’ the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man who has been hoodwinked in this fashion; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, whose mind is free. No, not the rack nor the atomic bomb, not anything. You can’t conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him.”
The US Congress has destroyed all trust with the American people. All they can do is sit behind closed doors and cunningly see who can justify the highest tax rates possible, plotting more power grabs and ways of eliminating the freedom of the American people. This type of behavior is destructive at best.
President Obama and his Congressional cronies have disregarded the voice of the people. They have promised no new taxes yet on the eve of some holiday, just like healthcare, Senator Reid is likely to force a vote on more destructive taxes while most of us sleep.
The New York Times even reported back in March that “As they craft their bill, Kerry, Graham and Lieberman are holding a marathon series of meetings this week with senators and interest groups in a bid to win votes and avoid costly ad campaigns against potential opponents.”
We cannot let this happen. Promises of no new taxes and transparency will not be fulfilled and it’s time to force them into keeping their promises. I know its exhausting having to constantly battle the government that is supposed to be for the people. I know we are all weary after a long fight against healthcare with the constant faxes, phone calls and emails to our Congressional representatives. But, through sacrifice we will reap blessings.
Call your House representatives and Senators. Call those that aren’t even in your district and state. Go make 50 phone calls and let everyone know that you will ensure they lose re-election with either a vote or contribution because a compromise on principle and integrity are unacceptable. Continue your pleas to God that their hearts will be softened and that they will realize where the true path is to restoring our Constitutional Republic.
