Massachusetts: Battleground for Freedom - Again

If you’re not aware of the battle brewing in Massachusetts, you should be - your personal freedom and economic welfare is at stake. On Tuesday, Jan. 19th, the people of this famous Revolutionary War state will once again be gearing up for a fight against tyranny and oppression. No, the British aren’t invading again - it’s a lot worse than that. Tuesday, voters will fill the seat left open by the death of Sen. Kennedy. Why is this election important to you, even if you reside elsewhere? Because, if the Democrats lose this seat they will lose their 60 member Senate majority, thus losing the ability to ram through legislation without the threat of a filibuster. See where I’m going with this? Right. The Health Care Bill.

If the Republican candidate, Scott Brown, wins against his Democrat opponent, Martha Coakley, it’s all over for the Heath Care Bill the Democrats are trying to force down the unwilling throats of Americans. All the secret meetings currently being held by Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and President Obama to hammer out some back-room, closed-door deal like what was done recently in the Senate, where votes were bought for favors, will all be for nothing. In fact, there are some who believe that if the GOP wins this seat it will be a harbinger of what’s to come in November, nationwide. Some Democrats agree, even Coakley herself, who was quoted as saying by The National Review, "If I don't win, 2010 is going to be hell for Democrats ... Every Democrat will have a competitive race." She now, of course, is denying this is what she said.

A week ago, it would have been almost unthinkable to hope for a GOP win in Massachusetts, but the polls now have the two candidates in almost a neck and neck race. There seems to be a ground swell of people who are tired of the one-sided partisan politics and secret closed-door legislation where votes are purchased with taxpayer money. The once thought “lock” for a Democrat Party Senator filling the seat in the Senate, from the state of Massachusetts, isn’t etched in granite anymore.

Health care reform has become a focal point of the race because Brown has vowed to vote against the health care package if he wins. If he arrived in Washington before the vote, he would be able to break the Democrats' 60-vote, filibuster-proof majority and potentially sideline the bill. However, there seems to be a lot of speculation that the Dems will find some way of holding up seating him, in the event he wins, to keep him from participating in the vote. If that happens, there are going to be many Americans who will cry ‘foul’ and you can pretty much say good-bye to the majority of the Democrats who currently hold power in

State Sen. Scott Brown

If you value your personal freedoms, your economic well being and you are tired of your fate being decided by liberal elitist, power hungry thieves who use your tax dollars to solidify their power base and enslave it’s citizens by saddling them with massive debt, go to the polls in Massachusetts, or call your friends who live there, and tell them to send a message to Washington that you’ve had enough. Tell them to send Scott Brown to the Senate, to keep the wolves at bay, until we can oust them in November.
