Socialism always brings out the worst in people. You should write that down on a piece of paper and put it in your wallet. You’re going to need it later.
Now we read that Representatives “Louise Slaughter and Bart Stupak have received death threats from enraged citizens…The vitriolic health care debate has become personal — too personal, say House Democrats who voted for the bill and now find not just themselves but their families in the cross hairs of opponents.”
“Too personal”? Really?
Think again. Perhaps the “enraged citizens” are thinking personally, and not of the socialist collective. After all, the bill Stupak and Slaughter connived to pass amounts to a death sentence for millions of Americans and their families. Who knows, maybe those “enraged citizens” might just be trying to level the playing field.
…that phone calls coming in are “full of obscenities” — oh, Bart, you mean like those that Joe Biden and Rahm Emmanuel use routinely? You can take it like a man from your superiors, but not from your constituents? What ever happened to democracy, Bart? Are you a kiss-up, kick-down kind of guy? Love your leaders, hate your constituents?
As a Catholic, I oppose all violence, even premeditated legislative violence. But I believe in metaphysics, and reality is reality — so I repeat: Socialism always brings out the worst in people. Pass it on, because it will get worse.12:07 pm on March 24, 2010 Email Christopher Manion
