THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: It's official. As of today, Sunday March 21, 2010, the United States of America officially became a socialist nation. If we really wanted to be honest with ourselves we should rename the country to the United Socialist States of America (USSA).
By this I mean the federal government already controls Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, welfare, food stamps, many once private banking and lending institutions, General Moters, and other formerly private sector companies. Now the federal government is in the process (a process that CANNOT be stopped I might add) of taking over the entire healthcare industry, of which this most recent legislation passed by the House of Representatives is only the start. It is the first in a long chain of bills and executive orders that will slowly transfer the ownership of private medicine over to the federal government. Mark my words, it's a process of relentless incrementalism that cannot be stopped.
When you include all of the direct and hidden taxes Americans are forced to pay, the average wage earner in this country already pays about half of his gross income to the federal government. This is a marginal taxes rate, which if it were honest and open, would be comparable to Sweden - a socialist monarchy.
Now I know this is a hard pill to swallow, but rest assured the American people (as a whole) are getting exactly what we deserve. Why? Because (as a whole) we elected this president and this congress knowing EXACTLY what they stood for. There is nobody in this country who can claim ignorance. The truth about this president and this congress was already laid out before the American people long before the 2006 and 2008 elections. Americans knew these people were socialists and yet they elected them anyway. Now we're just collectively getting what we all collectively asked for. Maybe you yourself, individually didn't ask for it, but collectively we did when we collectively elected Barack Obama by popular vote.
All the wrong financial moves have now been made. There will be no economic recovery. Between the financial bailouts and this latest healthcare scheme, there can be no recovery. It's impossible! Start preparing now for the financial crash of 2010. The United States will soon suffer greatly for it's sins, and God will bring our national chastisement upon us through the very "leaders" we've elected. In short, we are getting, and will continue to get, EXACTLY what we deserve.
Sadly, the group of people who will suffer the most from this legislation is the one group that bears no responsibility for it at all. It is the unborn, many more of whom will be aborted with our tax dollars, as a ongoing sacrifice of martyrdom for the sins of our perverted society.
It's official. The Catholic Knight is retired. I'm hanging up the helmet and passing the torch. There will be no more articles, no more commentaries, no more calls to action. THIS BLOG IS CLOSED. I've spent a very long time thinking about this, I believe the time has come, and is a bit overdue. I want to thank my readers for everything, but most especially for your encouragement and your willingness to go out there and fight the good fight. So, that being the case, I've spend the last several weeks looking for bloggers who are fairly active, and best represent something akin to the way I think and what I believe. I recommend the following blogs for my readers to bookmark and check on regularly. Pick one as your favourite, or pick them all. They are all great.....
