Do the members of the US House and Senate know something that their constituents don't?
One of the prime motivations of politicians is self-preservation in office.
They do not normally go out of their way to take a stand on anything for fear of angering blocs of voters. They will straddle any issue, talk out of four sides of their mouths [double talk on both sides], and watch polling religiously twisting in the breeze of public opinion. (...)
Fear of repercussions at the polls over-rides all. While they may have contempt for us (...), they do their best to conceal it behind a smile and fake concern.
Politicians acting out of character indicates a change in the rules, whether we know it or not.
The Legislative Branch of the United States government seems Hell-bent on imposing Socialized Medicine on the American public whether the majority of the latter want it or not and, more importantly, whether Socialized Medicine and all of its attendant details are constitutional and/or moral or not. 'Why' isn't such an important question. This is: what makes them think that they can get away with it without paying a steep political price?
Politicians in a group when they act consistently and anomalously against what would seem to be their own interests, are usually operating on information not available to anyone else. One also has to add to the mix the question why the Republicans as a party are only offering token opposition to the Democrats, when standing up would rally support to them? What do they know?
When you rule out the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, has to be considered. The only thing that remains, that I can see, is that no matter what they do, they no longer have any fear of facing the voters in an honest election.
Read this whole thing. The short of it, however, is this: our republic may be taking its last gasps.
It isn't as if we weren't warned.
