From Dick Morriss.com today:
If they beat us in the Senate, we will fight them in conference. If they beat us in conference, we will fight them in the House. If they beat us in the House over healthcare, we will fight them over cap and trade. We will fight them over immigration and amnesty. We will fight them over the deficit. We will fight them over the debt.
And we will fight them in 2010. We will fight them in the House. We will fight them for Senate seats in Connecticut, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New York, and Arkansas. We will fight them in Colorado and North Dakota and California and Washington State. We will fight them in Illinois and in New Jersey. We will never, never, never, never give up! Our country is at stake!
All our defeats do is to teach us the futility of appealing to moderate Democrats and the necessity – the dire necessity – of replacing them with committed Republicans. There is no such thing as a moderate Democrat in Congress.
To quote John Belushi, It’s not over until We Say it’s over. And I ain’t givin’ up just yet, compadres.
Does Harry Reid have the votes he needs to pass healthcare in the Senate? Yes, he does. But does Nancy Pelosi have the votes to pass the same bill in the house? Maybe . . . and maybe not. After the earful the Representatives got over the summer recess, many of them are re-thinking their career choices. Mny of them are just plain deciding not to run for re-election next year. And that’s a GOOD thing.
Plus the ever-so-fragile Democrap Coaltion is byond stress and into self-destructive behaviors now. Factions have begun to attack each other; and the promises Reid and Pelosi hav had to make are not only contadictory; and are just plain impossible. When the contradictory positions are revealed, their coalition will fall apart quickly. The catholics and the pro-lifers will never be reconciled. Just-won’t happen.
And while it seems impossible for Conservatives to overcome this momentum, it’s not. Never forget; Americans thrive on adversity and impossible odds. We are the people whose colonial Army stood up to the biggest, meanest Brtish Army the world had ever seen — and beat them.
And when they came back in 1912, we did it again. And when the Texicans were outnumbered and slaughtered a the Alamo, Sam Houston bat the Mexican Army at Goliad and won Texan independence.
You want to to talk about impossible? How about re-uniting a country torn apart by Civil War, and integrating a slave work force into it as equals? We did that, too. Defeating colonial Sapin and capturing her possessions to free Cuba and the Philippines? No problem. How about intervening in two World Wars (three if you count Korea) to stop territorial expansion by oppressor powers? How about freeing tow terrorist states and bringing Democracy to Arab countries that have never tasted freedom before? No problem.
Hey, if we’re going to dream impossible dreams, how about putting a man on the moon? How about twelve of them?
I’m not giving up. Neither should you. I may not be able to stop them on everything, but by God I will make them pay dearly for every inch of advance they take.
