By now you may have read about my 'history' with the UCC (United Church of Christ) and my rude awakening to the political machinations of this and other 'liberal, progressive churches'. President Obama, proud member of Reverend Jeremiah Wright's Chicago Trinity UCC, boldly kicked off his Presidential Campaign at The UCC Synod in June 2007 in Hartford, CT. As a publicly 'apolitical' person, I didn't like what I witnessed happening in a so-called church venue. I've had liberal-progressive politics shoved in my face before, but this was different...and it was serious.
Was I surprised at the campaign kick-off in a church setting? No. Was I displeased with the reaction church officials had to those who were not quite on board with their 'radical liberal politics'? You betchya! Not only was the line between 'church and state' obliterated, but the treatment of anyone such as myself, 'not on board with the UCC's political agenda', was akin to the treatment of a leper!
Ironically, that, too, was fine with me. My Lord and Savior preferred the company of lepers, as it happens. What he DIDN'T actively seek out to join were the lawmakers, the rulers, the royalty, the politicians and all the other power-brokers of the day! Jesus did his 'rebuking' and moved on. And, as if to prove my point, even President Obama, himself, fled the affiliation of Jeremiah Wright...or so he said. Then President Obama fled the UCC entirely, with a 'wink and a nod', knowing that that political strategy was a 'no-go'. The man is nothing if not pragmatic.
This treatise is my long-winded way of saying that I DO NOT SUPPORT and AM OPPOSED TO the HEALTHCARE REFORM LEGISLATION as it is proposed. The current bill is immoral in my opinion and crafted to foist upon the ignorant a manner of LEGISLATIVE ENSLAVEMENT that is anathema to the very tenets upon which these fine United States of America were founded.
As I've said many times: I am no political whizz. So I will let others with a greater familiarity with base politics be my mouthpiece when it comes to specifics of argument regarding Healthcare Reform. I may be ignorant of legislative procedures, but I am not stupid. My political phoenix within has awakened and I'm on guard.
I can discern between what holds for 'the greater good' and what serves to prop up an elitist 'take' on 'AMERICAN ENTITLEMENT'. I know when legislators are interested in self-aggrandizement with no regard for those who will bear the costs and burdens of what they intend to leave behind. Below is a fine one discussion of one duplicity that is going on in Washington, D.C. right under our noses, by those who think we are too stupid, too apolitical, too busy, to distracted to realize it.
Well, this lady has 'caught on' and she's realizing a lot of things. This current liberal-progressive Dems healthcare bill is the "TAWANA BRAWLEY' of Healthcare Reform and just as dishonest.
God Bless America,

Trojan Horse http://www.starvingbloggist.com/2010/03/trojan-horse.html
Yesterday, the House Of Representatives Budget Committee voted to pass President Obama's healthcare reform package through the reconciliation process by a vote of 21 to 16. Two Democrats and all 14 Republicans on the committee voted against the measure. Are you kidding me? This bill is not even the real bill, it is a decoy bill that will be replaced by the real legislation at a later time. A new Rasmussen poll shows that only 43 percent of Americans favor government run healthcare, but 53 percent of Americans oppose Obamacare. If the Democrats ram this down our throats this spring and pass this legislation without the consent of the American majority. They will be walking the plank this November and forfeiting their political careers. The Democrats are ignoring their fellow Blue Dog Democrats, they are ignoring the Republicans, and they are ignoring the American voters they are supposed to represent. President Obama tells us how important this legislation is, but he is adding new amendments and pushing the bill through both houses of Congress so fast that nobody has time to read it. The actual legislation might not have the public option or government funded abortion, but it will create new unnecessary taxes and expand the size of the federal government. Once they get this bill passed and into effect, they will use the slightest excuse (or crisis) to add the public option later. We must vote every single Representative who votes for this disaster out of office.
