Note:  The House Democrat leadership has opted not to use the "self-executing" rule - aka the "Slaughter solution" - to pass updates to the Senate health care bill and "deem" the Senate bill passed at the same time.  Instead, they will have separate votes on the Senate bill and on their "fixes" to the bill.  Even so, Mark Steyn's words are still relevant:

Investor’s Business Daily argues that the “health” debate is really a proxy fight on the size and role of government. According to their poll, 64 percent of people think the federal government has “too much power.” Correct. But a big chunk of that 64 percent voted less than 18 months ago for a man and a party explicitly committed to more government with more power, and they’re now living with the consequences. Obama is government, and government is Obama. That’s all he knows and all he’s ever known. You elected to the highest office in the land a man who’s never run a business or created wealth or made a payroll, and for his entire adult life has hung out with guys who’ve demonized (deemonized?) such grubby activities. Many of which associates he appointed to high office: Obama’s cabinet has less experience of private business than any in the last century. What it knows is government, and government’s default mode is to grow, and grow.

Yes, many of you reading this voted for Obama, and for the Democrats in Congress that are trying to shred the Constitution by passing this monstrous bill.  Is this what you wanted?  If not, are you sorry?  All I want is for someone who voted for Obama to say, "Electing Barack Obama president was a mistake."  Can any of you do that?  Can you admit you were wrong about him, and that I was right when I warned you all what he really is?  Do you have the courage?

Now, if this is what you want, if you really want Americans to surrender our liberty and further transform, to a greater degree than ever before, from a nation of individual responsibility to one of government dependency, fair enough.  You have that right.  You have the right to believe the federal government should run health care, and whatever else it deems it should, despite the clear language in the Constitution to the contrary.

And I have the right to invite you to leave.  Seriously, go.  Move to another country that is already the way you want this one to be.  Don't try to turn the United States into another socialist state like so many others already have, those who had the luxury of doing so because they were protected by the US.  Don't try to drive the entire country into bankruptcy, like California is facing.

Samuel Adams said it best:

"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
