You can literally feel the heat as you read these words from Sarah Palin. This is a defiant woman who is on record saying: "Politically, if I die, I die, but I won't sit down, and I won't shut up!" Certainly the woman known as Sarahcuda by her championship basketball teammates is not sitting down, and not shutting up.
These are terrible times, times that try men's souls. Our economy is crashing around us, unemployment has now reached levels not seen since the aftermath of the failed Carter presidency. We've just had a domestic terrorist attack on the largest military base in the world, and what does our "commander-in-chief" concern himself with? The destruction of America as we know it, that's what!
This Chicago street thug communist "community organizer" has America on a path of certain destruction. Economic and social destruction. His communistic plans to change America from a Constitutional Republic to a communist dictatorship are well on their way. Once Obama and his democrat/communist party gain control of our health care system, it's all over. They will have complete and total control of America. Congress itself will became irrelevant as everything will be run from the White House by Czars and other unelected, unconstitutional usurpers.
Knowing this, Sarah has sent out another message, not only to Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the communist stooges, but to America. This is your wake up call people. What are you prepared to do?
The Pelosi Bill Was Rammed Through on Saturday, But Sunday’s Coming
Today at 12:34am
We’ve got to hold on to hope, and we’ve got to fight hard because Congressional action tonight just put America on a path toward an unrecognizable country.
The same government leaders that got us into the mortgage business and the car business are now getting us into the health care business.
Despite Americans’ decisive message last Tuesday that they reject the troubling path this country has been taking, Speaker Pelosi has broken her own promises of transparency to ram a health “care” bill through the House of Representatives just before midnight. Why did she push the 2,000 page bill this weekend? Was she perhaps afraid to give her peers and the constituents for whom she works the chance to actually read this monstrous bill carefully, if at all? Was she concerned that Americans might really digest the details of a bill that the Wall Street Journal has called “the worst piece of post-New Deal legislation ever introduced”?
This out-of-control bureaucratic mess will be disastrous for our economy, our small businesses, and our personal liberty. It will slam businesses at a time when we are at double-digit unemployment rates – the highest we’ve seen in a quarter of a century. This massive new bureaucracy will cost us and our children money we don’t have. It will rob Americans of more of our freedom and further hamper the free market.
Make no mistake: we’re on course to have government commandeer one-sixth of our economy. The people who gave us Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac now want to run our health care. Think about that.
All of us who value the sanctity of life are grateful for the success of the pro-life majority in the House this evening in its battle against federal funding of abortion in this bill, but it’s ironic because we were promised that abortion wasn’t covered in the bill to begin with. Our healthy distrust of these government leaders made us look deeper into the bill because unfortunately we knew better than to trust what they were saying. The victory tonight to amend the bill and eliminate that federal funding for abortion was great – because abortion is not health care. Now we can only hope that Rep. Stupak’s amendment will hold in the final bill, though the Democratic leadership has already refused to promise that it won’t be scrapped later.
We had been told there were no “death panels” in the bill either. But look closely at the provision mandating bureaucratic panels that will be calling the shots regarding who will receive government health care.
Look closely at provisions addressing illegal aliens’ health care coverage too.
Those of us who love freedom and believe in open and transparent government can only be dismayed by midnight action on a Saturday. Speaker Pelosi’s promise that Americans would have 72 hours to read the final bill before the vote was just another one of the D.C. establishment’s too-common political ploys. It’s broken promises like this that turn people off to politics and leave them disillusioned about the future of their country.
But despite this late-night maneuvering, many of us were paying close attention tonight. We’ll keep paying close attention. We need to let our legislators in Washington know that they still represent us, and that the majority of Americans are not in favor of the “reform” they are pushing. After all, this is still a country “of the people, by the people, and for the people.” We will make our voices heard. It’s on to the Senate now. Our legislators can listen now, or they can hear us in 2010. It’s their choice.

In case you wonder how your "president" feels about you, Kathryn Jean Lopez, from National Review Online, has this little jewel:
The President of the United States Said That?
President Obama, in his pitch to Democrats on the Hill today (from the New York Times):
Mr. Obama, during his private pep talk to Democrats, recognized Mr. Owens election and then posed a question to the other lawmakers. According to Representative Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, who supports the health care bill, the president asked, “Does anybody think that the teabag, anti-government people are going to support them if they bring down health care? All it will do is confuse and dispirit Democratic voters and it will encourage the extremists."
Amazing, huh? I hate to tell this guy, but he and his thugs are the extremists.
Again, I have to ask: What are you prepared to do? This "president," this Government, is clearly the enemy of the people. The "president" and his party of maniacal, power mad communists must be stopped at all costs. They clearly do not care what the American people want, or think.
Nearly two million people marched on Washington on September 12. This past Thursday between 30 and 45,000 patriots held a rally on the Capitol steps hosted by Michelle Bachmann and other Conservatives. These patriots actually went into the congressional office buildings and confronted members of Congress, to seemingly no effect.
So where do we go from here? What are you personally prepared to do?
I know we all must do our part. We can no longer sit by and allow what amounts to a coup d'etat to continue.
I'm reminded of these words from the greatest political document ever written:
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. --That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
