"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."
(Thomas Jefferson)

Ronald Reagan Speaks Out Against Socialized Medicine in 1961

NOTE: From the 1961 Operation Coffee Cup Campaign against Socialized Medicine as proposed by the Democrats, then a private citizen Ronald Reagan Speaks out against socialized medicine. There is no video because this was an LP sent out by the American Medical Association
President Reagan's comments in 1961 need to be heard by everyone in America including those Democrats in the Senate who voted to keep Obamacare instead of repeal. His comments detail what the Democrats were trying to pull off on socialized medicine during the Truman years and they never stopped. The Democrats finally pulled it off with Obamacare years after Reagan's warning in 1961. That passage fell in the category of 'elections have consequences" which was never truer than in 2008.

The comments of President Reagan should be used by everyone as he sums it up better than anyone I have heard what is wrong with socialized medicine. His words to contact your members in Congress including the ones who agree with you to express your disgust with socialized medicine are as true today as when he first said them.

Please share the link below with your members of Congress as they need to listen to President Reagan in this You Tube audio about the dangers of socialized medicine: 
The Judicial Ruling by Florida District Judge Vinson when he ruled that it is unconstitutional for the bill to mandate individuals to buy healthcare was a major step forward. Because the Democrats got cute and attached a no severability clause in the Obamacare bill, he ruled the whole bill was ruled unconstitutional.

Now it is up to all of us to put more pressure on the Senate even though they have voted to keep Obamacare. This fight is far over and their votes to keep Obamacare against the wishes of the American people will have repercussions in 2012. The House has done their part but we have to let our Republican members know we stand behind them 100% in their fight against Obamacare and the House Democrats who voted to keep it, we will be coming after them in 2012.

Doubt if you would ever see a Pelosi or Barney Frank take the time to listen to this Reagan audio because they have no desire to hear what he had to say. Those Senate Democrats along with House Democrats who voted to keep Obamacare who are up for reelection in 2012 need to hear this audio loud and clear.

The question of the day is if Ben Nelson, Nebraska Democrat, is going to stand for election or is he going to retire. He has gone from being popular in Nebraska to be one of their most unpopular Senators ever. During the Bush years he was a staunch ally of the President but since Obama took over he has been voting with the Democrats more and more. Time Nelson retired and Nebraska Republican Senator Mike Johanns is joined by a fellow Republican to represent the values of the people of Nebraska.

We took one Democrat seat back in North Dakota when Dorgan retired and they elected the popular Republican Governor John Hoeven to be their Senator and now in 2012 we have a chance to pick up their second Senate seat with Conrad announcing his retirement.  In January 2013, North Dakota could be represented by two Republican Senators along with Nebraska. 

Next up is the Democrat Senator Johnson in South Dakota in 2014.  Then each of our six red states in the center of the Country will have two Republican Senators when he is defeated.

Looks to us like the 2012 election is already starting with the Senate Democrats voting to keep Obamacare. As a good friend and I have been saying since 2000 -- politics has become a virtual campaign with little stopping in between federal elections.
