Thoughts on Life

I Wonder What the Democrats are Thinking?

I am a conservative Republican, and here's why. I was raised by a father who grew up during the depression. His mother died when he was six, and not long after that he contracted polio. His legs were weakened and his left arm was completely crippled. Now, for Democrats this would be a sob story worthy of lots of government care and concern. The only thing is, my father would have found it offensive to expect someone to "take care of him" especially the government. He grew up in a time when people took care of themselves, their families, and their neighbors. A man worked hard at any type of labor in order to take care of his family.

So, were my father alive today, I know he'd be having a fit over the health care bill being argued in Congress. He would hate that it runs 2700 pages, that no one knows what's in it, and that the Dems are forcing it down our throats. I also think he would have agreed with the sentiments of one of the founding fathers, James Madison.

"It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is today, can guess what it will be tomorrow. Law is defined to be a rule of action; but how can that be a rule, which is little known and less fixed?"

Hm...sound familiar?
