The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

Well, here we are, on the brink of having our nation "changed" right out from underneath us. We are not happy with this situation, because we see it as no-win. The president and his administration have forced and politicized and polarized and distorted and beaten to death the idea of "healthcare reform" such that it may very likely become a Pandora's box of unforeseen ramifications.

Not the bill itself -- that will embody in law certain disaster for the nation. But the debate itself. Here's why: if this bill is defeated, the entitlement class will be incited to revolt. Whether they will be appeased before Louis Farrakhan talks everyone into burning the cities is debatable.

If the bill passes, the rest of us will do all we can to fight it, which means that the legal system will be battling the unlimited resources of the Obama administration for as long as he wants to battle. And all indications are that will be a very long time, indeed. He doesn't appear to be fazed at the process of imperiling the economy, the mechanisms of constitutional government, and the very social fabric of the land to get what he wants.

Neither of these two more obvious possibilities is auspicious for the future of America and Americans.
