"What You Resist Persists"

The very nature of our constitution gives us certain inalienable rights and I love my country for all of its faults and diversities because it is proof of how well it works.
But i am becoming more and more disappointed in how we communicate our ideas.

Sarah Palin's PAC Facebook page shows a map of the US and crosshairs (that you see when looking through a rifle) that represents Congressmen/women that voted for the healthcare reform bill.
Every person on that list is a mother, father, sister or brother. They are people, just like you and me. Here stands a civic duty to stop this kind of hate.
Violence begets violence.
Mother Theresa once said she would not attend a war rally during the Vietnam war because it was just that a "war rally". She said she would attend if it was a "peace" rally. Mother Theresa knew that even though the idea was to promote peace at the war rally, the mere fact that the event was called a "war" rally discouraged peace.
In The Secret it is explained.
"So if you are anti-war be pro-peace instead. If you're anti-hunger, be pro-people having more than enough to eat. If you are anti-a particular politician, be pro-his opponent. Often elections are tipped in favor of the person that the people are really against, because he's getting all the energy and all the focus.
So now that its said and done Im moving on.
Concentrating on the solution.
Life is meant to be abundant and so the answer lies in compromise.
The health care reform bill is not the solution. History has shown that competition drives down cost not government interference. Affordability is the issue. If a person with a pre-existing condition has enough money, he gets coverage. Quality healthcare should not be determined by wealth. As Americans we should measure our success on the conditions of our poorest.
The best indication of a person's character is how she/he treats people who can't do her/him any good and how she/he treats people who can't fight back.
A deep sense of self respect is what is required now from all of our leaders.
