In a few short hours, the Senate will convene, the roll will be called, and Sen. Harry Reid, flanked by the likes of Dodd, Schumer, and Durbin, will proclaim a “historic” moment in history as the Seante passes its version of ObamaCare, a travesty against the American pubic who have overwhelmingly rebuked it. The tears will be shed and the voices will be choked as the name of the blessed saint of healthcare, St. Ted of Kennedy, is invoked over and over again, ad nauseum. They will then disappear into the nethers of the holiday season that Reid used as his scare tactic.
Amidst this backdrop, with the bribes for votes for the “must do now” legislation, Nelson’s folly and Landrieu’s Louisiana Purchase (to name just a few), we will see that among our elected officials no leader has emerged. There will be no one Senator on the Democrtas’ side that shows the “profile of courage” that would place him or her among the ranks of great leaders. There will not be a Jefferson or a Lincoln among them. No Rosa Parks will sit down and force Harry Reid to stop this insane process. There will be no leader of conviction, no Wilberforce among these cowards.
Our healthcare system needs reform, of that there is not a doubt. But it does not require us to forsake our freedoms, our blood-earned liberties, to do that reform. It would take the brave words of one Democrat at 7am, this Christmas Eve, to save us from the battle that will lie ahead in the coming weeks on Capitol Hill. Is there just one leader among the 60 Democrats?
