I get it, I really do get it! The anger and outrage we are seeing by so many on the “right” seems to be coming to a tipping point and that tipping point has resulted in the phenomenon that is Donald Trump. In addition to the massive backing the Donald has been receiving we have seen Republicans and Conservatives alike become increasingly frustrated with the way many aspects of the federal government are run. Over the course of the past 6 or so years we have elected more and more Conservative thinking politicians into office with the hope that by doing so we can stem the tide of progressive filth being fed to us from Obama and the left. One of those pieces of progressive filth has been Obamacare.

According to Huffington Post,

In August 2009, the debate over the proposed Affordable Care Act made its way into town hall meetings across the country. Democrats hoped to use the forums to explain the complexities of health care reform and dispel any myths. They came with long-winded answers and PowerPoint slides.

Tea party conservatives had another plan: They saw these earnest settings as opportunities for rage. The gatherings quickly devolved into shouting matches and even physical altercations. Democrats were accused of torching the Constitution and handing people with disabilities a death sentence.

“It was a lot of vitriolic racism,” recalled former Rep. Tom Perriello (D-Va.), who was then a freshman Democrat from a conservative-leaning district.

“I was getting spit on. My staff was getting kicked,” he said. “We were getting calls using the N word every day. People were very comfortable in very professional settings saying, ‘You know there is nothing for white people in this bill. Why are you supporting it?’”

It’s funny how the likes of Huffington Post paint Conservatives with a broad brush as racists and hate mongers like they’ve done here, yet they truly fail to address the reason why the people are so upset. I by no means condone the behavior of these individuals and don’t think they represent the true Conservatives but it’s easy to see why they are so mad. Like I said we have been voting election after election for individuals who we believe will uphold the Constitution and get government out of places where it has no business being such as our health care.

This type of thinking would help to eliminate much of the discord we see today in government on both a federal and local level. If the average American citizen actually read and understood the Constitution they would realize that the federal government isn’t the be all end all and that we do have a 10th amendment that would place things like health care under local government control where it belongs. Even then government should remain out of such things as much as possible as the free market is the best alternative to the Obamacare debacle.

Regardless of what side of the isle you are on it is imperative that we all control ourselves regardless of the circumstances surrounding our government run amok. The more aggressive we become the more aggressive government becomes and right now that is not a road we want to head down. In the meantime we need to read the Constitution and other historical documents, do our homework, and elect individuals who will abide by the Constitution and truly stand up for the rule of law!
