What I've learned from the health reform debate

After watching the health reform debate unfold on the national scene, I've discovered the following:

At the end of the day, a blue dog Democrat is just a democrat and should be renamed lap dog democrat.

A "moderate" Republican is not moderate at all. What's so moderate about a government takeover of 1/6 of our economy. Trying to look like cool, rational, and reasonable just makes them look like fence sitting cowards taking stock of which way the wind blows.

Rod Blagojevich is a criminal, but Harry Reid is a compromiser? They are both in the business of buying and selling Senate seats. Our elected leaders have fallen to a new low. They have become so immune to corruption and sleaze that they no longer fear the light of day. On the contrary Mary Landrieu of the Louisiana Purchase bragged about how much it took to buy her vote. With that type of attitude toward public service is anyone still fuzzy as to why the levies in New Orleans were and still remain in bad condition?

2010 is the year that could make or break America as we know it. Wake up America! There are no free lunches. If the electorate does not take their energy to the mid-terms elections we're in for a long, dark season of discontent.

I used to be torn about term limits. Now I am for them and in a big way. It is time to get rid of career politicians and remove the ivory tower mentality from Washington.

Finally, I hope that the States begin to review their rights under the 10th Amendment and begin to nullify over-reaching legislation. Moreover, I would welcome 2/3 of the States calling for a Constitutional convention to restore checks and balances. I'd recommend locking out all sitting Federal kleptocrats from the process.
