A Call to Resist -- Radio talk show host Laura Ingraham holds forth:
It's time we all stop pretending that what is happening with this Obamacare debate is about "helping the uninsured" or "fixing the healthcare system" or "giving the people what they want."
It's about none of those things.
It's about amassing as much power in a central government as humanly possible. It's about wealth redistribution. It's social engineering at its absolute worst.
The American people must take this political system back from those who have hijacked it in one of the most abhorrent power grabs that we the voters have ever seen.
It's the holiday season so the Democrats are counting on you to be otherwise occupied and too busy to stand against their massive expansion of government.
Let them underestimate us again just as they did last summer.
Let these unrepresentative politicians proceed with their legislative chicanery and self-righteous grandstanding.
We can expose them and confront them in the classic American spirit -- a public gathering on their doorstep.
On December 15th at 1 pm, we will remind Pelosi, Reid, Schumer et al. that they work for us and not the other way around. We will demand that they follow the will of the people, not dismiss and degrade it by putting future generations into a deficit dungeon.
We will put every politician who supports this travesty on notice: enjoy your remaining time in the U.S. Capitol because we're coming for your seat.
My view: Given that the historic Christmas in verifiable space and time is an act of resistance against evil and tyranny in all its forms -- stemming from the central problem of man's ethical alienation, by choice, from a life of community with our true Creator -- the Christmas season seems a fitting occasion to resist the political-cultural spirit of tyranny today, expressed with special force in the rise of a president and a political party that is even now undermining constitutional government in the name of all sorts of gifts from an overweening federal government, among them, socialized healthcare.
So along with giving our kids their two front teeth for Christmas, maybe it's a good idea to give them their freedom back as well.
Now that would be a big Christmas. Let's talk about it December 15. All of this gift-giving could make for an intriguing New Year.
