If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animated contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms, crouch down and lick the hands of those who feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you. May posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. -Samuel Adams

Slogans, from http://teapartypatriots.org/HCSigns.aspx :

Ignorance, apathy, and indifference pave the road to tyranny.

He who would sacrifice freedom for security will end up with neither. -Ben Franklin

Rebellion to tyranny, is the natural manure of the tree of liberty. -Thomas Jefferson.

Socialized medicine hotline – 1-800-YOU-DEAD

I called dial-a-joke and got the new socialized hospital.

Under socialism you have two choices: take it or leave it.

UNDERTAKERS FOR SOCIALIZED MEDICINE – WE’LL MAKE A KILLING!

Welcome to Uncle Sam’s clinic – Satisfaction or your MUMMY back.

We promise what we can’t deliver.

The Government’s new motto: How can we fool them today.

Socialism – the equal distribution of MISERY.

Government has no heart or soul.

Socialized Emergency kit – aspirin and a bandaid.

Socialism – putting patients on death row.

There’s Free cheese in a mousetrap.

Along with shekels come shackles.

Socialism is well balanced – there’s problems everywhere.

If at first socialism doesn’t succeed – LIE, LIE AGAIN.

Government health care will raise suffering to a higher level.

Socialism cures one disease – nobody will die of old age.

Socialism – the duty to die for the greater good.

Socialism – the John Bobbit approach – Let’s put it together and see if it works.

Socialism – for a bad cough, take a laxative – you’ll be afraid to cough.

For Constipation – a picture of Nancy Pelosi – It’ll scare the crap out of you.

Feed a fever, starve a cold – the government can only afford a cold.

If you don’t have a hernia you’re not carrying your share of the load.

Socialism is like a hospital gown – you think you’re covered but you’re not.

Government coverage is like trying to cover a football field with a beach towel.

Socialized Dentist – for a toothache – smash your thumb – you’ll forget about the toothache

For indigestion – poke yourself in the eye – you’ll forget about your stomach ache.

Socialism is managed money, not managed care.

Socialized eye doctor – for double vision shut one eye.

For High blood pressure – cut yourself and bleed to reduce the pressure.

Government doctor never lost a patient – he knew where they were all buried.

Everyone gets average care – average is the best of the lousiest and lousiest of the best.

Socialists slogan: there’s no problem so big it can’t be covered up.

The good news is you’re young at heart, the bad news is your liver’s shot.

Government doctor cuts off wrong leg: Patient is hopping mad.

Government wants to solve the problems THEY CREATED.

Government health care – like asking the Mafia to fight crime.

Government health care – like asking Madonna to teach abstinence education.

Government mental care – the lunatics are guarding the asylum

Govt health care is like the wolves guarding the henhouse.

Don’t give the govt the keys to your health = change the locks.

Government health care – Taking the bitter with the sour.

Socialism – for a bright future all doctors will get sunglasses.

Government health care opportunity: Invest in anti-depressants.

Socialism – when nameless, faceless, heartless bureaucrats are the coach of the doctor.

Socialism will scare you half to death twice.

Socialized medicine – to save money, share a hearse.

Entrepreneur of the year: “Do it yourself caskets.”

The impersonal hand of government can never replace the personal hand of a physician.

Freedom lifts doctors and patients from the quicksand of injustice, to the solid rock of opportunity.

Government knows the cost of everything and the value of NOTHING.

Government statistics are only accurate 68% of the time.

Government doctors won’t be the sharpest quills in the porcupine.

Socialist motto: “If you can’t convince them, confuse them.”

Socialism = “If you tell a big enough lie, and tell it long enough and loud enough, the people are bound to believe it.”

Government health care = Fascism in a white smock.

Will health care be different in the next century? No but if you call right now you may get in by then.

What if I travel and get sick? Government ask a nurse: “You really shouldn’t do that.”

What if I want alternative treatment? Govt. ask a nurse: “You will need alternative forms of payment.”

Do all diagnostic tests require precertification? Govt. ask a nurse: “No, only those you need.”

I think I need a specialist but my GP insists he can handle a heart transplant in his office. Can they really do that? Ask a Govt nurse: “Hard to say, but you’re only risking a $20 co-pay, there’s no harm in giving it a shot.”

The Government health care rationing plan has nothing to do with health care, and everything to do with getting doctors to volunteer to become slaves and patients to become wards of the state.

Of Hillary’s 1,342 page health care scheme, only 17 talk about health care, the rest talks about how the government will administer the plan. President Obama has learned never to publish details until it’s voted on. This is government transparency –

Patient Power

No government run medicine

No socialized medicine

Patients in Charge

My Doctor Works for Me!

Government - Keep Your hands off my health care.

I can control my health care dollar better than government.

I can’t afford everyone else’s health care.

Don’t ration my care.

I don’t want a cookbook doc - I want a real doc!

Cookbooks are for chefs – not doctors.

No committees in the operating room.

I don’t want to wait for my surgery.

More Cancer Survivors in the US than Britain.

Cut my health Care Tax – Don’t raise it.

40 years of -Government Care -Managed Care -medical inflation

Medicare - $84 trillion reasons to say no to government health care

Oxymoron: Efficient Government Medicine

Want Government Medicine? Move to Canada.

If America Socializes Medicine, where will Canadians go?

Socialized Medicine – American Style!

Congress – We won’t let you mess up Our Medical Care!

My doctor reports to me – not congress.

Why die waiting for heart surgery?

My Dollar My Doctor My Decisions

Can’t see your doctor – thank Congress!

Mandate this!

Expensive Health Insurance – a Mandate I can live without!

I can’t wait a year to see my doctor.

IMPORTANT! Please see http://forums.4aynrandfans.com/index.php?s...amp;#entry95343 on this Forum, for what one doctor is doing to defend himself and his profession.

Some are writing polite letters to their congressmen. I am not -- anymore than I would respond politely to a bully who grabbed me by the throat.

Using the links kindly provided at http://www.doctorsonstrike.com/politicalammunition.html , I've just e-mailed each of the 12 Democrats on the Senate Health Committee as follows:

Senator:

Keep your hands OFF my doctor! Keep your hands OFF my health care — you godd_mned socialist! This is supposed to be the Land of the Free — not of Big Government looters like you! Get your a__ to Cuba where you belong!

Thanks Bill. Here is the letter I sent to my senators.

Senator, my health, my sickness, my well or ill being, is mine, only mine. Just as I don't own you, so you do not own me. It is not your business to make my health decisions for me, just as it is not mine to make them for you. I do not want or need your damn selfless-minded help. So please get back to your only---do you hear me?---your ONLY rightful purpose, which is the protection of the individual rights of life, property and liberty.

A lover of the Republic of America,

Brian Faulkner

A polite letter might be appropriate for those few congressmen who have not made up their minds. However, I believe it would be totally out of place if directed to those fascist/socialist who compose the bulk of the Democratic Party. They have already demonstrated that they despise our individual rights. Nothing matters to them but satisfying their power-lust.

It is those fascist/socialists whom we should put on notice:

You not only run the risk of being voted out of office.

You run the risk, ultimately, of civil war.

Make no mistake: many of us will fight, rather than submit to a dictatorship.

E-mail from TEA PARTY PATRIOTS:

It's Up to You and There's No Time to Wait!

Dear Fellow Patriot,

You have been making a difference all across this country since February. You have made your voices heard. Many in the mainstream media have scoffed at us. Some on our side have asked if we are able to keep the momentum going. Others want to know if our movement is growing or not. The politicians whose policies we are working to defeat have tried to ignore us.

We are here to tell you, we are making a difference! We are strong! We are united! We love this country and have her best interests at heart! We have and will continue to make our voices heard!

And, right now is the time to do it. We are in for what may very well be the most important political fight of our lifetime. And we mean lifetime literally. In the future, our very lives may depend on our actions today.

You probably know at least 1 person who has had an abnormal medical test. Maybe you have had it yourself. Maybe it was a family member or a loved one. After that first abnormal test, the doctor usually schedules more tests, maybe refers you to a specialist, and works to determine what the diagnosis is. Waiting for those tests and the results can feel like the longest wait in the world. You worry that something is wrong. You hope that nothing is wrong. You think, "Is it serious? Do I have cancer or some other terrible disease? Is it malignant? Maybe it will be benign. Maybe the doctors are wrong." You wait. And you worry. Luckily, in our health care system today in America, that wait is only days or maybe a couple of weeks. And, if the diagnosis is serious and requires further treatment, doctors work to treat your problem right away.

Imagine if that wait were months and months long. Imagine if some government bureaucrat said, "You will have to wait for 4 months until we have the time and doctors to treat you." Imagine that few days or weeks turning to months. What if the problem were serious? What if the wait time caused you to miss your treatment window? What if it were your mom? Your spouse? Your child? This happened to Shona Holmes. A couple of weeks ago, Amy Kremer and I had the privilege to meet Shona Holmes and hear her story first hand. Had Shona waited for her nationalized health care in Canada to actually diagnose and treat her, she would have died. Click here to watch her story on Patients United Now and her Fox News Interview.

The liberal tax and spend politicians want to takeover our health care. They want control not just of our wallets but also our very lives. These politicians realize what is at stake. If the bill passes, bureaucrats in Washington will determine when you can see a doctor, which doctor you can see, and whether or not you can actually have treatment. Is this what you want? Are you going to let politicians takeover your health care?

The bill that will allow the government to takeover our health care was introduced today. It is 1,018 pages long. The politicians know that if you have time to read the bill you will not want it. They are not willing to allow honest debate and honest review of amendments. Speaker Pelosi and the House of Representatives are trying to rush passage of this bill, this one thousand eighteen page bill, by the time they go on summer vacation on July 31.

Are you willing to fight for control of your personal health care? Do you want the government to takeover your health care?

The heat is on! It is make or break time.

As I write this, Wednesday July 15, the Labor and Education Committee in the House is marking up the bill. That committee will probably pass the bill out of committee this week Wednesday or Thursday. On Thursday, the Ways and Means Committee and also the Energy and Commerce Committee in the House will be marking up the bill. Those committees are also trying to pass the bill out of committee this week - as in Thursday or Friday.

If you do not want the government to take control of your physical well being in addition to your wallets, then you must act. We must act quickly, decisively, and relentlessly. Here is what you can do:

1. On Wednesday, July 15, call every single member of the Labor and Education Committee (click here for list and phone numbers). Ask the questions below of the staff. Record your answers in this form (click for the form). We want to keep up with the number of calls, emails, and faxes that are made into Congress.

2. On Thursday, July 16, call every single member of both the Ways and Means and the Energy and Commerce committees in the House (click here for list and phone numbers). Ask the questions below of the staff. Record your answers in this form (click for the form). We want to keep up with the number of calls, emails, and faxes that are made into Congress.

3. Attend the Tea Party Patriots Health Care Freedom Protest in your area. Take an hour off of work. Are your health care and the physical well being of your family members important enough to you to spend an hour making sure your voice is heard? While you are there, we need you to do 3 things: sign the Free Our Health Care Now Petition, Sign the Letter to your Representative or Senator and hand deliver it to their office, and hold your signs opposing government takeover of your health care.

4. On Monday, July 20, call every single Blue Dog Democrat, those are Democrats who say they are fiscally conservative, (click here for list and phone numbers). Again, record your answers in this form (click for the form). We want to keep up with the number of calls, emails, and faxes that are made into Congress.

POWERFUL WORDS from one Tea Party supporter (at http://www.darkstarincorporated.net/online/healthcare-2.php ) :

SAMPLE LETTER OR EMAIL:

I'll be brief. You and your colleagues are proposing to destroy one-sixth of this country's already weakened economy in the name of health care reform. In the rush to pass these so-called reforms, it is apparent that the Congress will, once again, not have the time or even the desire to read the legislation.

This country does not have the money to pay for these reforms so you further propose to tax into oblivion the very individuals that drive this economy and provide my employment. The unintended consequences of your haste and ignorance will wreak havoc upon our economy, my employer and my family. I will not even pretend to know what motivates this Congress but I do know it has nothing to do with health care.

... Do you think I will forget this treachery so quickly? Your spending has already destroyed my children’s chance for a decent future. Now you want to destroy their childhood as well? I can guarantee you this: When you threaten and endanger my family, there is no power on earth that will make me forget- EVER.

Try thinking of the American people and quit listening to President Obama. He is no longer a legislator. Unless there is a true national debate to address the areas of our health care system that actually need reform, you are to OPPOSE passage of this legislation. I expect you to take whatever action necessary to stop this madness. If you are unsuccessful and should Congress pass this legislation in this manner, your career is over.

We should, of course, also scream from the housetops that those bastards in Washington have NO RIGHT TO TAKE AWAY ANYONE'S FREEDOM.

Which would be heard mostly by those who voted them into office and who already de-facto accept socialized medicine as desirable.

For a country that blithely accepts taxation, a New Deal, a Great Society, public schools, an FDA, this is all par for the course. To argue against the latest abomination would be to logically argue against all of the rest. It's one more malignant tumor in a body half filled with them, invisibly accepted as the norm.

Freedom is only understood, and seen as a value, by thinking, independent men. The rest - the large majority - voted in Obama and his minions and expect "results". So, they're getting them.

This is no time to give up fighting, or to adopt a defeatist attitude. There were times during the American Revolution when prospects for the cause of freedom looked gloomier than they do today!

Michelle Malkin points to a Wall Street Journal article at http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124779635199955619.html ,

saying that Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa is especially influential.

Add him to your list of people to e-mail this weekend. In this case, a polite e-mail, since he's undecided.

Life under the British in the (far smaller) pre-Revolutionary colonies had far less taxation and far more political freedom than today. By orders of magnitude. I think this was less due to explicit philosophy than to the self-sorting that occured as the most independent, freedom loving individuals (and their direct descendents) decided to move to the New World. No comparable circumstance had existed for many thousands of years anywhere else in the world - the ability for a man to move to a place with a vast open frontier unhindered by generations of slavemasters.

Shouting from the rooftops is at most going to get you arrested. It is much more important to reach the Atlases of America so that they understand their position. A rational Bill Gates (which sadly will never happen) would be worth many millions of "average Americans" in terms of the potential to effect rapid, in-your-lifetime, positive political change, to the extent it's changeable. Washington is fed and directed by campaign contributions, most influenced by wealthy donors, and too many of those are ardent altruists. The vanguard of environmentalism and socialism generally in this country are extremely wealthy altruists such as Gates, Buffett, Soros, etc. One only has to observe the highly disproportionate positive influence of the actions of John Allison, acting with heroic independence, to see this point. Ten such men would dwarf the sum total effect of the tea parties.

I would surmise that the most powerful potential for in-our-lifetime change - such as it is - would be to educationally target schools attended by the children of America's wealthiest individuals, all the way from K-12 through college, because they will be the next generation with the greatest influence. That is assuming that one has accepted the mistaken premise that any large population of men (in the current metaphysical state) is ever going to desire to be, perhaps even have the metaphysical ability to be, independent, first-handed thinkers.
