When you’re backed up against a cliff by your enemy, and the next step is into bottomless pit, you don’t have time to negotiate how much more ground you’re willing to give. You simply grab rocks, dirt, sticks, or whatever you can get your hands on and start fighting for survival.

When your home is being invaded by armed thugs, who mean to do your harm and claim your property as their own, you don’t have time to huddle up with media consultants and strategize how to out-maneuver them. You simply fight back by whatever means necessary in order to survive and saved your loved ones.

Likewise, when the last latch on the statists’ Pandora’s Box is about to be opened, and your government is about to hit the kill switch on the greatest experiment in freedom and liberty in human history, you don’t care about what politicians who can temporarily exempt themselves from such tribulation think. You start looking around at your kids and grandkids, and realize you’re fighting for the survival of their very way of life.

Many of you who live on a planet I call “normal” know exactly what I mean by this. Unfortunately, many of your elected officials, even some of the good ones, who live in a fantasy world called “Washington, D.C.”, do not.

Your company just dropped its health insurance and has unleashed you on the Obamacare exchanges you either can’t access or afford, and you’re wondering what happened to President Obama’s promise you could keep your current plan if you wanted to. Or you just found out the cost of your existing premiums are going way up, despite the ironically titled “Affordable Healthcare Act.” You’re already barely surviving during the worst economic “recovery” in American history even before this happened. You’re already agreeing to work too many hours because it’s not like going out and getting another job is easy right now. Plus your oldest is in college, piling up the student loan debt for a degree that may not provide her job once she graduates.

Meanwhile, your elected officials whose salaries and benefits you pay for sanctimoniously rage about push polling claiming they have to go ahead and let Obamacare finish off whatever’s left of your family budget. Of course, all this polling is coming from a liberal media who are largely cheerleaders for the progressive destruction of traditional Americana, but why let good propaganda go to waste? Rather than defend you against the threat of Obamacare, these same elected officials go on television and say the best thing to do is just to let it run its course and leave your family in the dust. After all, they’re mostly exempt from its evils for the time being, so why do they care?
