I have to tell you that I have been in quite a funk about the Health Care Bill passing and being signed into law this week. I truly believe that it will be financially devastating and will have a negative impact on our individual freedoms in the years ahead. I'm sure I'll get some vitriolic feedback for that statement. You wouldn't believe the absolute venom that is spewed by some Lefties when someone like little ol' me dares to have an opinion that differs from their own. That being said, I'm thankful that people like that are in the minority and that most Americans are good and decent folks who believe that everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
In fact, that is the reason that I have renewed hope today. I have been reminded that what made this country great are her people. We are the people who left behind everything we had ever known to cross the ocean in search of liberty. We are the people who conquered the wilderness and made it a home. We are the people who despised tyranny and defeated the greatest empire in the world at the time. We are the people who tamed the wild west. We are the people who found it self-evident that all men are created equal and are endowed by their Creator, not government, with certain inalienable rights. We are the people who throughout our history have been willing to sacrifice everything for liberty's sake.
It's going to be okay, America. We are still the people.
