The Not So Silent Majority is Here

Disgraced former Vice-President Spiro Agnew coined the phrase “The Silent Majority” back in the late 60s to describe conservative, middle-class, white Americans.  A new Silent Majority is emerging and it’s not necessarily conservative, middle-class, or white; and it is definitely not silent.

This not so Silent Majority ranges from average working Americans to senior citizens to health care professionals and they are showing up and making themselves heard at health care Town Hall Meetings all over the country.

These folks want answers and all they are getting from the Obama administration is accusations of being organized mobs and intimidation by union thugs.

Mr. President, instead of jack-booting and Presidential contempt, how about giving us the answers we want. 

Explain to us how you can cut $500 billion from the already bankrupt Medicare program to help pay for your government takeover of our health care without cutting services to senior citizens.  Tell us why we should trust the government to run our health care system when they have already failed miserably with Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.  Explain to us why you feel a $544 billion tax hike is justified to pay for less than a third of the projected cost of government controlled health care.

Mr. President, as more and more members of the not so Silent Majority begin to see how truly radical and dangerous you are, they sense that we are at a tipping point that, unchecked, will precipitate the demise of our Republic.

Mr. President, please explain to the American people how you could appoint an absolute nutcase like John Holdren to the office of Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, or Science Czar.  Tell us why we should have confidence in your ability to make good decisions when you appoint a Science Czar who has written extensively on his utterly insane views, some of which are as follows:

1.    Individuals determined to be “undesirables” should be forced to have abortions or be sterilized.

2.     Infertility drugs should be placed in the nation’s water and food supplies to limit population growth.

3.     A Planetary Regime should take control of the world’s economy and enforce this policy with an international police force.

Members of the not so Silent Majority aren’t asking for anything special; as a matter of fact, our needs are quite simple.  All we want is the freedom to make our own decisions regarding our health care.  All we want is the government to leave us alone, and let us make our own choices in life and accept the results of our choices.  All we want is to keep more of our own money and make our own decisions as to how we spend it or to whom we give it.  All we want is to exercise our God given rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness without Big Brother looking over our collective shoulders.

Mr. President, may I suggest that you bone up on the writings of Thomas Jefferson.  I suggest you study the following passage:  “I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”
