A Demented Waterloo

Just as Goliath had his David and Napoleon had his Waterloo so too does President Obama have a foe determined to see him fail. Unfortunately for the rest of us in the country his foe makes up 40% of the U S Senate, not to mention 100% of one of the cable network so-called news programs.

When Republican Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina opened his mouth and told his conservative supporters, and by that I do not only mean his constituency that if his group can hold together and delay any movement on health care they can destroy Obama.

His actual words were, "If you're able to stop Obama on this, it will be his Waterloo. It will break him."

Senator Demented, uh I mean DeMint went on to urge the people listening to him to stand firm and fight for the insurance industry and big business so that America would remain safe for corporate profits. It was a sort of damn the torpedoes full speed ahead speech meant to rally the troops against the evil doer in the White House.

It is clear that the battle lines are well defined and the enemy is spending millions trying to get the uneducated masses of the country to join their cause. Too many people are swayed by classy advertising to realize that they are voting against their own best interests.

In the old days it was said that what's good for General Motors is good for the country. Obviously things change and we must change with the times. It is time for all Americans to come together and ask their representatives in government to get real and get us affordable health care.

I know that they get tremendous amounts of money from the lobbyists and industry pays their vacations and makes their lives wonderful but if we don't vote them into office they cannot flex their greedy muscles. Once in a while they actually have to do something for the people that make up the country and this is one of those times.

If you would like to help everyone then help yourself to this link and find your Senator. Send him or her a message today so that you don't have send a different message in November!
