Conservatives can't sit out

"These are as perilous times as those that spurred Paul Revere to warn colonial patriots that the enemy had landed; the difference being that we are fighting an enemy from within rather than one from without."

Those are the sentiments expressed by a friend recently as we discussed President Obama's health care proposals.

While universal health care coverage is the decoy, the president is after bigger game - total government control of our lives.

If Mr. Obama wants to provide health care for the uninsured, there are numerous ways to achieve that without imposing controls like those contained in H.R. 3200.

Remember, the chief proponent of this bill - the man who asks us to trust him with our end-of-life decisions, our surgical choices, our infant care choices and our on-campus health centers - is the same man who brought us double-digit unemployment; the collapse of the mortgage, banking and auto industries; and unprecedented generational debt.

I like what Rush Limbaugh said about the President's health care plan: "He's either a blooming idiot or he thinks that we are and knows that the state-controlled media is not going to call him out on this."

Honestly, is there anything that Mr. Obama has done - as president, Senator or agitator - that would cause you to believe anything he says?

Consequently, it is time to consign the liberals' health care plan to the medical waste heap and keep the pressure on Congress to abandon this debacle.

I can't forget that, as conservatives, we stood by when school prayer was assailed and look what happened.

We stood by when abortion became the law of the land and look what happened. We cannot stand passively by again and let the liberals impose their agenda on a compliant populace.

The stakes are too high to sit this one out.
