Nancy Pelosi and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer have teamed up to call anyone who dares question the democrats motives regarding health care “simply un-American”. In a column written for and published in USA today, the pair called into question the patriotism of anyone who dared speak up at one of the town hall meetings being held around the country to discuss the health care.
This type of behavior is not new to the Speaker, from accusing the CIA of lying to her and congress, to repeatedly calling Republicans unpatriotic, Ms. Pelosi continues her efforts to call into question anyone who might have an opposing viewpoint.
Ms. Pelosi has become the poster child for the Democratic hypocrisy. The Speaker, who led the charge to withdraw troops from Iraq before the job had been completed, more than tolerated anti-war protesters in the past. As a matter of fact, I quote, “ It’s always exciting,” she said of anti-war protesters, “This is democracy in action, I’m energized by it, frankly.” Yet when someone with an opposing viewpoint speaks up, it is "un-American."
I believe that the very foundation of our democracy is built on the right to free speech. Voicing your opinions to your elected officials is not only your right as a citizen of this great country, it is your responsibility as a citizen legislator to insure that the elected officials are representing their constituents.
We as voters have to remember that we elect legislative representatives, we send them to Washington, St. Paul, the County Seat, City Hall, and we must follow through with giving them direction. We cannot sit idly by and assume that they will have our best interest in mind when making legislative decisions. We need to meet with these legislators, write them, call them, email them, shout them down when they are not listening, and remind them of whom they represent and what our interests are.
Nancy Pelosi’s rhetoric is reprehensible and too many times in the past has she shown her true colors as a socialist leaning left wing nut case who would have us all in the peasant class serving the aristocracy of the political class.
We as right minded Americans have a great opportunity at this time in history, the liberals could not be making it easier for us and we need to organize and take advantage of this situation and take back our great country.
Let’s take back our country and maybe once and for all we can remember to do it right this time and keep it.
