Congressman Joe Wilson, R-SC, fired a two word shot into the mast of Obama during his speech to a joint session of congress... two words that will stand as the ultimate act of defiance against Obama's Government Dictated Health Care: YOU LIE
Immediate condemnation came from both sides of the aisle as the ever so tame Congressional Chambers, for a moment, became as boisterous as the British House of Commons.
Republican elites and Democratic elites alike have already said, and will continue to say that Joe Wilson was out of line, and that he had broken the code of decorum.
However, what we saw was a sheer act of bravery... career ending bravery perhaps, but bravery to directly challenge the lies of the administration and the Democratic party over the 1000+ pages of unconstitutional socialist policy making up this public option proposal.
Joe Wilson's Democratic opponent raised over $100,000 in the hour after the shout... I say we give some money to Joe Wilson... He has taken the Tea Party directly to the President... He has taken the voices of the millions of us who attended Town Hall meetings to debate this issue with our Congressmen and Senators directly to the President. He has given opposition a DEFIANT voice.
Now is not the time for DECORUM! Now is not the time for being polite.
Republican leaders should EMBRACE Joe Wilson's defiance... yet their condemnation is a signal that 2010 will not change a thing. Republicans and Democrats alike are too afraid to shake up the system, to move the pillars of socialism OFF the foundations of this country. They are cows... The politicians are cowards, the entire lot of them... Less JOE WILSON, who stood up for the American People, and will likely 'die' for it...
Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori - How sweet and fitting it is to die for one's country
Joe Wilson will have an uphill battle heading into 2010, and it should be our struggle to keep this man in office. If he goes down, it will be because he stood up to tyranny!
Sic semper tyrannis
SUPPORT JOE WILSON
To hell with "Polite Politics"... We are mad as hell and we aint gonna take this Socialist Death March any more!
(on a private note, I loved the look on Obama's face and Pelosi's face)
