The Citizen Revolution Has Begun…just like the American Revolution…in Massachusetts.
Political Predictions of GOP Victory…from the Only Las Vegas Oddsmaker-Turned Vice Presidential Nominee
By Wayne Allyn Root, 2008 Libertarian Vice Presidential Nominee
It was only a few weeks ago that I predicted in a commentary that Democrats would pass universal healthcare without a so-called “public option.” At the time, Democratic leaders in Congress were screaming hysterically about the public option having to be included. I predicted in my commentary that this was all a smokescreen…a charade…to distract the voters. Democrats never intended to pass a public option. The plan all along was to pass something with a different name, that appears at first glance to be “more moderate,” and claim they had compromised. In reality this 2000+ page healthcare monstrosity is the death of American business. It is the opening for socialism (government control of business and our lives- medical and financial) that Obama and his radical leftist cabal have sought from day one. My prediction has come true. That’s exactly what is happening.
It was only a few days ago that I predicted in a commentary that President Obama never intended to tax high value health insurance plans that belong to union members. That too was a smokescreen intended to make him look “fair.” In the end I predicted that Obama would give a corrupt special interest gift to the unions that contributed so mightily to his election, and find a way to make unions wiggle out of paying for universal healthcare. That’s exactly what happened late last week. Obama gave the unions an exemption so outrageous it should lead to revolution in the streets from…everyone else. Where’s my exemption? Where’s yours?
I have news for Obama- If you think everyone in the country should pay for universal healthcare…except union members…YOU JUST PROVED YOU’RE NOT ONLY A SOCIALIST….BUT A CORRUPT ONE TOO.
Obama’s corrupt compromise gave unions a 5-year exemption from higher taxes, while the rest of us suffer right away. But that’s only the start of this outrageous scam. The reason Obama gave the unions until 2018 to start paying…is all part of his cynical game. This deal buys them all 8 years to figure out how to exempt union members permanently- in the smoke-filled backroom, while no one is watching and this controversy is forgotten. So there’s my next prediction…if Democrats stay in power, unions will never wind up paying a dime for universal healthcare.
But here’s my most important prediction of all- Obama and the Democrats are about to be swept out of office in the biggest Tea Party revolt since 1776. As a matter of fact, my gut instinct tells me Massachusetts Republican U.S. Senate candidate Scott Brown will pull one of the most shocking political upsets in history on Tuesday. Mark it down…whether Brown wins, or simply comes close…the Tea Party political revolution began in Massachusetts just like the first one in 1776.
The only thing standing in the way of this “mother of all upsets” is Obama and his corrupt Massachusetts labor union buddies bringing thousands of dead bodies to the polls on Tuesday. My guess is they are digging up the graves right now. But I don’t think it will be enough. Even the liberal voters of Massachusetts have had enough. What happened? Simple. The citizens of Massachusetts got a head start on experiencing “universal healthcare.” As the first state with government-run healthcare (courtesy of Mitt Romney) they found out firsthand that it’s a huge fraud- medical costs rise, wait times rise, quality of care deteriorates. The Obama lies only work on those who have never experienced government-run healthcare.
Despite my support for a true fiscal conservative named Joe Kennedy, the Libertarian in that MASS. U.S. Senate race, I believe that a Scott Brown victory will be a huge victory for Tea Parties and be the ultimate “canary in the coal mine.” Brown’s victory will destroy the 60 vote margin needed to pass universal healthcare in the U.S. Senate. This red victory in a blue state will give Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Dodd, and Barney Frank a preview of the political beat-down to come. Even the swine flu never caused the amount of violent shaking and vomiting that you’ll see in Washington D.C. on Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.
