Playing With Fire

In the sweet old country
Where I come from
Nobody ever works
Nothing ever gets done
We hang fire, we hang fire
--Rolling Stones

After news broke yesterday that the administration has been warning insurance company executives to stay quiet about Obamacare, I am beginning to wonder whether this president will make it thru his second term.

Beyond presiding over various scandals, massive debt and deficit spending, unprecedented money printing, and, of course, the Obamacare circus, President Obama and his administration have engaged in vindictive behavior against those who disagree with them.

This president is playing with fire and, with his approval ratings marking lows, appears vulnerable should the fire spread.

Consider the economy and financial markets, which are being held together by massive interventions certain to erode in effectiveness. If the wheels come off the fire wagon and a bonfire erupts, then this administration might not be able to survive the political heat.

The most basic principle to being a free American is the notion that we as individuals are responsible for our own lives and decisions. We do not have the right to rob our neighbors to make up for our mistakes, neither does our neighbor have any right to tell us how to live, so long as we aren’t infringing on their rights. Freedom to make bad decisions is inherent in the freedom to make good ones. If we are only free to make good decisions, we are not really free.
~Ron Paul
