I read this morning on TheHill.com (link) where Arlen Specter stated that "I think the public option is gaining momentum. ... I'm not going to step back a bit." Now is the time, its do or die. We need to rally our family, friends, coworkers, everyone we know and tell them the truths about government run health care. If you are not already doing so, you need to call your representatives every single day and let them know that voting in favor of Obamacare is political suicide. What makes this country great is that the people are FREE. Free to buy health insurance and just as free not to. We are free to choose our doctors, our lawyers, and our politicians. America is great because the individual is dependent only upon him or herself. We don't need to go beg the government to get treated by the best doctor. If we want the best, we strive for the best, no need to kiss the shoes of someone else to get what we want. Now is the time, if you read conservative blogs but don't really take the time to write letters or call your congressmen, now is the time to take action. The very freedom that this country is based upon is in jeopardy.
A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government.
