OK, I'm just gonna come right out and say it...

It's all about power. The Democrats want more and the Republicans don't want them to have more. The Democrats power base is built on taking care of average Americans by providing Government services. The Republican power base is based on taking care of American Businesses and the richest 1% of Americans. Insurance Companies will have reduced profits under our Health Care Reform. It's not hard to imagine Big Business emailing out the marching orders to the Republican Party. "If this passes, you are out of the Country Club!" I kinda feel sorry for the Republican Party. Who will fund their election races? Who will pay for their 3rd home in the Bahamas? I hope Big Business will forgive them their failure. The Republican Party voted against Civil Rights, the creation of the Medicare system, and the creation of Social Security. They have been on the wrong side of every one of these important American Ideologies. The Republicans wouldn't ever dare try and roll back our Civil Rights laws, eliminate our Medicare system or go on the record as being against our Social Security Programs. They won't touch Health Care Reform either. How did the Health Care Reform debate get so ugly? It's easy, by spreading rumors and half-truths. Whisper in the ear of the Militias/gun nuts that 'Big Brother is coming for them and is going to take away their Constitutional Rights'. Lie to the Religious Right and tell them that Health Care Reform will fund Abortions and/or Death Panels. Organize and fund the nut jobs, give them a different name, fire them up with rhetoric and let them loose to spit and hurl racial slurs against Congressmen. Then the Republican Party gets to stand back and say, that's the Tea Party, we're the Republican Party, we have nothing to do with them. I've said it before, THE BEST TRICK THE REPUBLICAN PARTY EVER PULLED OFF WAS TALKING PEOPLE INTO VOTING AGAINST THEIR OWN INTERESTS. Was there one single Tea Bagger at the 'protest rally' yesterday whose income last year was in the top 1% of America? No, I will eat my hat if proven wrong. Every one of the Tea Baggers will benefit from this Health Care Reform. The loudest critics today will be the loudest supporters in ten years. "Don't you DARE touch MY Health Care Reform, Bertie go get my shotgun..." Think I'm crazy, don't know what I'm talking about? I wonder if the mobs in Little Rock Arkansas trying to block the black students from attending the whites only High School back in 1957 would be willing to stand up today and shout the same racial slurs? It's about power folks. The Democrats have figured out how to provide important services to the Average Americans, and they will reap the rewards in future elections. The Republicans failed their Big Business bosses and have lost more ground in the court of public opinion and will face the consequences in future elections. It's about power...
