A Sleeping Giant or a Comatose Pygmy?
Arnold Kling pens a opinion piece, in regards ObamaCare (DeathCare), titled Health care bill woke a sleeping giant. Kling opens his piece stating the following.
For many Americans, March 21, 2010, is a date that will live in infamy.
Though I would like to believe that Kling is correct about March 21 living in “infamy,” I think most Americans, even those opposed to ObamaCare (DeathCare), if queried about the significance of March 21st, 2010 would state, “Uh, that was the first day of Spring, right?”
Kling then ends his piece this way.
The point here is that health care legislation was just one battle. The overall war is larger. After Pearl Harbor, Japanese Admiral Yamomoto is reported to have said, “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.” So it should be with us today.
Kling is correct in noting that the ObamaCare (DeathCare) battle was “just one battle,” but it just one of many battles that Americans have lost and failed to learn from when having to turn and fight again and again.
Kling is also correct that the overall war is larger, but I fear that the resolve Kling desires would be infused into the American people is not a resolve to win even one battle against the State, but rather a resolve to adjust their chains for a more comfortable fit.
