The End Of The America As We Know It

I'm still sick. Not really sick - I can get out of bed and do things around the house. Just the sort of sick that makes your head start to hurt if you attempt to do anything other than watch TV or read a book for more than fifteen minutes. For that reason I haven't really been in the blogging mode for the last couple days, and I do apologize for slacking.

So they passed the healthcare bill on Sunday. I can't tell you how infuriated I am at that. All the Democrats in Congress just spat in the face of the majority of the American people.

It's just a mess. Goodbye to the formerly best healthcare system in the world.

What gets me most is that they cheated! They just "deemed" it passed by the House, without letting the House of Representatives actually vote on it. Um, that's called unconstitutional and dishonest.

I know there are scores of lawyers ready to file lawsuits against it, and I hope they succeed. But honestly, the only surefire way to get this reversed is to vote the Democrats out in November. Every last one.

Rush Limbaugh said on Monday that there are no moderate democrats. They are all far left - some of them are a little farther left than others, but there isn't one in the middle. I completely agree.

We need to vote them out in November, People! At least then there will be a chance to get this repealed. If we don't get them out, I just don't know what's going to happen.

After I heard that they actually had this passed, I couldn't help but think back to a post I wrote right after Obama was elected president ("The Day After: Remembering My Sojourner's Heart"). I felt like the world was ending then too (for good reason, as I'm reminded of now).

But I had to just remind myself then, as I am now, that this world is not my home. America is the best country in the world to live in, even now, but it's not my Home Country. I'm on my way to someplace better, and even though governments and countries here on earth rise and fall, no one can touch my real Homeland. Sometimes it's the only thing that keeps me sane.

But until Jesus returns to take us Christians Home, I say we fight, fight, fight! We need to do everything we can to get this repealed, and that means voting Republican in November.

Are you with me?

Yeah, we were getting pretty upset about it last night and I just reminded Stephen that no matter what our healthcare is like we have our heavenly Father and each other, and in so many ways we are really blessed. I don't like what is happening in America AT ALL. But all I can do is vote, stressing doesn't help.

Amen, sister!!!! Remember in November!
But, I'm also remembering that scripture...some trust in horses, some trust in chariots, but I will trust the name of the Lord!

I'm glad to read your thoughts on this, my friend. This is a topic that I myself have been wrestling with over this past year. It seems the more and more I get to know my Jesus, the more and more detached I become to politics and any one political party. Jesus was never loyal to a country or a nation, He was loyal to His Father.

When I read John 18:36, I breathe a sigh of relief, knowing that this whole mess is one less thing that doesn't deserve my worries.

Yes I think it's absolutely terrible. No I don't believe we should just stop caring about our nation's problems. But when there's a broken-hearted soul that comes across my path of life and I have an opportunity to do something about it, that's when my REAL patriotism - the patriotism for my Father's kindgom - matters more than any kingdom mankind can build on this Earth.

What's amazing to me is that even my state, Washington, is filing to stop this from taking effect in our state. Washington and Oregon are known for being incredibly liberal and yet Olympia is already opposing it! Granted our governor is still supporting it, but the majority of the state as a whole is against this new healthcare crap. Heck, the majority of America as a whole is against it! It's unconstitutional in so many ways and I'm positive that those who voted to enact this garbage are going to see their approval ratings fall dramatically over the next few weeks.

Reminds me of Star Wars: "So this is how liberty dies: with thunderous applause." (Ironic, though, since Natalie Portman played Padme, and Natalie Portman is a raging liberal. How's that for irony?)

This whole situation has made me so upset. But you're right, this isn't our real home, and I keep having to remind myself of that!

Lauren said...

I definitely agree. Being in the insurance industry I will be the first to admit that there are things that should be fixed...but forcing something through isn't the answer.

If I could vote in the USA then I would :) x

If can't vote (yet), but my heart is with you. This subject has been on my heart for months, and I've wanted to write about it so many times. And I think I'm going to try to do that soon.

I have to be more careful what I say, because my Canadian loved ones just don't understand why this is such an awful thing.

So until that post goes up, I'm glad YOU said something!
