Guess who's holding a town hall meeting tonight? Representative Alan Grayson, Democrat of Florida, who said Republicans want you die quickly and refused to apologize for it. That is, if you reserved your seats in advance to attend a venue that holds less than 200 people. With those kind of restrictions, why hold a meeting at all? He should just stay in his living room and invite family, friends, and staff over to celebrate Obamamania.
This is the same man that was cheered by all the unreasonable voices on the Left for calling America's current health care system "a holocaust." But to listen to Rep. Grayson tell it, he has a conscience and Republicans don't. Democrats can pass anything they want, because they're the good guys and Republicans are "knuckle-dragging Neanderthals."
Does an elected official who limits the number of citizens allowed to participate in his town hall meeting sound like a champion of the people? Does he sound like a man with a conscience? Or does he sound like a simple-minded Neanderthal who is going to vote his far Left agenda regardless of the opinion of his constituents? In fact, dare I say it, but since he brought it up, Rep. Grayson sounds like a tyrant. He evokes the language of Nazis, who after all, just wanted to do what was best for Germany. In their mind, the Nazis were "serving the collective good." Rep. Grayson wants to tell us what's in our own best interest, even if it violates our liberties. Those willing to stand up for their individual rights are to be demonized, ostracized, and silenced.
But let's look at the representative's claim for a second. A holocaust usually involves a government or sect of the government actively infringing on the rights of others. Since the poor receive aid and by law no one can be turned away from treatment at a hospital, and since we have free will to spend money on insurance at our discretion, that's a ridiculous claim to make. However, once everyone is funneled into a government run health care plan complete with rationing boards, boards that take away choices and decide when you can live and when it's your time to die, we might then arrive at a moment where "holocaust" is an appropriate term to describe the state's actions.
Let's look at some examples of the socialized "care" Rep. Grayson's conscience hopes to bring to America. Cases like this in England, where a woman had to step in to save her mother from being starved to death by the NHA, because they determined she only had a few days to live. That was nine months ago, and her mother is doing just fine, thank you. It's amazing what food and water will do for someone's longevity.
Maybe one day Rep. Grayson can actually say that he helped pass the law that caused millions of Americans to face situations just like this, condemning them to die prematurely. He can say he helped bring the holocaust of starving the sick to America. And again, I only use these terms because the congressman so eloquently brought them up.
Representative Grayson is a Democrat Congressman who has made a mockery of our system of government. We sent these people to Washington, D.C. to represent us, not to rule over us. This is an issue that will affect every American's life, their health, and the health of their family members. But Rep. Grayson would rather shout insults than work for reasonable reforms that a majority of Americans support. Maybe they should give him a Nobel Peace prize, because there's little doubt where he's learning this behavior.
