When government is godSenate Majority Leader Harry Reid gave a lesson on the essence of socialist health care and government as god in a Wednesday news conference. CNN's Dana Bash, questioning why the Senate would not pass House bills for temporary funding of various programs during the government shutdown such as children's cancer research, asked, "If you can help one child, why won't you do it?" Reid's response was an emphatic: "'Why, why, why would we want to do that? I have 1,100 people at Nellis Air Force Base that are sitting home because of government employee furloughs. They have - they have a few problems of their own. This is-to have someone of your intelligence suggest such a thing maybe means you're as irresponsible and reckless."
Aside from the point that Reid makes his own case about intelligence by not being able to put complete sentences together, he revealed the entire theory of government that he and his Democratic Party embrace: communism. The concept that government is god. To Reid, the 1,100 workers sitting at home temporarily are more important than life-sustaining cancer treatments for children who could die during the shutdown. The leviathan called government must be well fed and operational because it is far more important than a mere child's life. This is the DNA of the vast majority of Democrats and of many Republicans because they are socialists and communists--not Constitutional Americans, nor are they Christian.
I turned on the news last night to see what everyone was saying. News reporters, the mayor of Washington, DC, people on the street were all crying foul that the government was shut down. What were they to do? Street venders in DC were shutting up their carts. Metro had 20 percent less riders. I went to the window this morning and looked out. The red outline of the mountains told me that the sun was coming up. The electric was still on. People were driving. Kids were getting ready to go to school. If millions of people are non-essential government personnel, and they are at home, does this mean government is too big? Could small business do more for less? Is this an opportunity for enterprise and wealth creation?
Exodus 20:3 says, "Thou shalt have no other gods before me." Harry Reid is a chief priest of the government god. He and most of the politicians in Washington worship government. It is more important to keep the hungry leviathan happy, growing, and well, than it is to give life sustaining treatment to a child dying of cancer. It was only a short time before Reid's statement that he and his mates were decrying that shutting down the National Institute of Health would harm children with cancer. This prompted the CNN reporters question. But the real story is that its not about health care or service, its about control and government. It should serve as a revelation to anyone who thinks this government cares for them.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
