Defeat Obama Care!

As SWAC Girl reminds us, please call Senators Webb and Warner and let them know you want them to vote no on the upcoming health care bill vote.  I’ve already done most of the work for you:

Senator Jim Webb

202-224-4024

Senator Mark Warner

877-676-2759

All you have to do is tell them to vote no and then give the staff your name and zip code.  Very easy.  I just got off the phone with them both a few moments ago.

I don’t know if it will change anything, but it is worth the two minutes or so to give it a try!

  1. At the start of each new Congress, the entire House of Representatives and one-third of the Senate are sworn into office. This oath taking dates back to 1789, to the first Congress. However, the current oath was fashioned in the 1860s, by Civil War-era members of Congress. The Constitution stipulates no specific details for the oath of office for members of Congress other than what is stated in Article 6 under Debts, Supremacy, and Oaths. Article 6 states: “The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”

    There are two particulars herein that should be observed. First, the swearing is an oath. By definition an oath is an affirmation of a specific duty, which is sworn in the presence of witnesses to a supreme power. In this case, that power originally was defined as the God of the Scriptures. The definition of the term “oath” is as follows: OATH: an oath is: a. A solemn, formal declaration or promise to fulfill a pledge, often calling on God, a god, or a sacred object as witness. b. The words or formula of such a declaration or promise. c. Something declared or promised.

    The first Congress developed this requirement into a simple, 14-word oath: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support the Constitution of the United States.” The current oath was enacted in 1884 which reads: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

    Each particular member of Congress swears, under God, and the penalty of His frowning chastisement, to uphold the Constitution. According to the Constitution’s original intent all tyranny, oppression, and in particular socialism, which is oppression by theft through the re-distribution of private property, and wealth, is forbidden. And yet, many of our congressional and senatorial “leaders”, have consistently supported the socialistic legislation of this executive administration whenever the opportunity arose. This is evident in the latest vote in favor of socialized medicine, commonly called “publicly funded health care”.

    The first system of socialized medicine, based on compulsory insurance with state subsidy was created by Otto von Bismarck, (“The Iron Chancellor” and predecessor of Adolph Hitler), after the Franco-Prussian War of 1870. Socialized health care was implemented by the Soviet Union in the 1920s, in New Zealand in 1939, in England in the 1940s, in China in the 50s, and in Cuba, under the dictatorship of Fidel Castro in the 1960s.
    In a desperate attempt to be like other socialistic nations, here in the U.S., Universal health care and national health insurance were first proposed by President Theodore Roosevelt, who repudiated the Constitution by his statement that he had about as much use for the Constitution as a “Tomcat has for pajamas”. His cousin, President Franklin D. Roosevelt later championed socialized medicine, as did Harry S. Truman. As part of his Fair Deal, Truman announced before describing his proposal that: “This is not socialized medicine”. And yet, by definition it was, and still is. At that time government involvement in health care was ardently opposed by the AMA which distributed posters to doctors with slogans such as “Socialized medicine … will undermine the democratic form of government.” What is fearfully interesting is that not only will it undermine the democratic form of government; it will enslave the American people to the state in a way unlike American’s have ever experienced.

    This aggressive move to socialize medicine by the socialistic congress, senatorial and executive branch of Obama’s Government (with all its Czars stealthily in place for an American coup de gras) is the last great leap into a full-fledged socialized system of Government. Ronald Regan rightly observed: “One of the traditional methods of imposing statism, or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine” even though he was indeed guilty of unbiblical spending and the increase of government expansion.
    Trifling with an oath is consistently condemned throughout Scripture. A Godly man’s communication must be “yea and yea” and “nay and nay”. Swearing falsely is also forbidden in the United States legal code, let alone the Holy Scriptures. A Godly man will take his oath seriously, even if it is to the U.S. imperfect constitution, and not try to impose upon the people a system of tyranny through political gyrations, twisting and bending what is clearly a violation of his oath. A vast multitude of congressional, senatorial and the chief executive officer of these united States, has violated their oath of office by not protecting Americans from the plundering enemy of socialism, which inevitably must give rise to fascism. As a result of the corrupt nature of these politicians coupled with the apostasy of the Christian church and the pathetic silence of the Christian people, the United States has been plunged into the great darkness of God’s judgment.

    The second particular resides in the fact that socialism is indeed a religious, messianic ideology. While there may not be a religious test for Constitutional officers perhaps there should be a political ideological test, since Socialism postures itself as the “Great Physician of souls” by promising cradle to grave totalitarianism by way of an egalitarian system of wealth distribution. Not only is this fascism, it is also blasphemy, and in actuality a religious belief system. According to Dr. Stephan Perks of the Kuyper Institute, Edinburgh Scotland, “Socialism is a world-view – a religion – that is diametrically opposed to the Christian religion in its view of God, its code of ethics and its teaching on social and political order. Christians must see the socialist agenda for what it is, revolution against God’s will for man’s life. The Church is called to speak the prophetic word of God to society and call the people back to obedience to God’s law. If she is to do this faithfully she must resolutely stand against socialism in all its forms.”

    On November 7th, 2009, congressional leaders voted in support of the tyrannical un-Constitutional, and un-Biblical health-care program in violation of their Constitutional oath and their ministerial responsibly before God as per Romans 13. Just recently the senatorial leaders voted likewise. The political career of these godless men and women must end. It is clear that they are only capable of more ungodly acts of corruption and evil.

    One final observation: It is significant that in some European countries still adhering to a Christian legal system, a violation of a promissory oath is treated as perjury. Thus, accordingly members of both the house and senate have not only perjured themselves, but have consistently perjured themselves. Sadly, and even more frightening, these politicians cannot distinguish between what protects the American people and what plunder them. Pressure from the Christian community must increase to critical mass. Biblical solutions from God’s Law must be proposed on all fronts through the writing of position papers and the implementation of those solutions to the real world. Then the system, if God wills, will recalibrate. The magistrates of this nation must be held to the strictest accountability. Americans, and especially Christian Americans, must identify and resist all notions and implementations of Socialism wherever it exists, locally, state-wide and nationally.

    1. I appreciate the zeal of both the VA Conservative and the Rev. Dr. on the issues of health care and civic involvement. However, it is unfortunate that both of them seem much more concerned with phone calls and position papers rather than Christ’s command of loving one another. I find it disappointing that so much effort is focused on mental argument and philosophical grandstanding rather than feeding the hungry or healing the sick. It is especially disheartening to see the Rev. Dr. pronounce judgment on others with esoteric theological arguments rather than respond to Christ’s own judgment of the world in Matthew 25:
      [Jesus said] Then they also will answer, “Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not take care of you?” Then he will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.” And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.’ (Matthew 25:44-46, NRSV)
      Whatever government’s role ends up being in providing for “the least of these”, Christians are commanded and compelled by God to love one another. When the focus consistently remains on protecting ‘my’ property or not giving to anyone else, it seems to me that genuine concern for those in need is ignored or abhorred.
