An Honest Question for Our Democrat Friends….

IF….

If an overwhelmingly Republican Congress…

Passed an overwhelmingly unpopular bill…

Ignoring the outcry of multitudes at Town Hall meetings…

Without a single Democrat vote…

Consisting of 2700 pages of legislation…

Which no one had had enough time to thoroughly read…

Much less analyze for:
• Cost
• Benefit
• Feasibility
• Effectiveness
• Legality
• Constitutionality
• Burden to the states
• Burden to local governments
• Burden to federal government
• Burden to the industry affected by the legislation
• Burden to the individual user
• Burden to the taxpayer

And if that Republican Congress told everyone “We have to pass it to know what’s in it”…

And painted anyone who questioned the decision as a hateful, bigoted, evil, racist…

If a Republican Congress had done these things…

In spite of half or more of the country actually rousing from their apathetic political slumber…

If President Bush had gleefully signed the act into law for the Republicans…

Despite not one single Democrat voting for it…

How fast, how furious would the Democrat legislators work to overturn the unpopular, costly mistake?

Too many of our progressive friends seem to be giddy with the fact they got one over on the mean old conservatives, but overlook the fact that the whole mess is setting precedence they may not be too happy about during the next swing of the political pendulum.

Lost freedom for one is lost freedom for all, conservative and progressive, Republican and Democrat and Independent alike. My poor, misguided, short-sighted friends, this is not a win, not even for you.
