The Horse Sense Blog compares the nonsense in today's news with good ol' fashioned horse sense


“…I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.… It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.” - Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775


"The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell

Will Voters Be Fooled A Third Time?

Here's the Nonsense:  Great news that the Obama Administration has delayed the implementation of major parts of Obamacare until 2015.  Obviously that means the anti-Obamacare forces are winning.

Here's the Horse Sense:  Don't fool yourselves.  This delay is a classic stalling tactic to get Americans to focus on other things while the Democrats try to hold the Senate and take the House back in the 2014 elections.

We all watched as information about Benghazi was covered up, denied, and stalled until after the 2012 election to keep it from derailing Obama's reelection campaign.  Now, we're seeing the same type of action by this administration to try to control the outcomes of the 2014 mid-term elections. 

The administration is beginning to realize how damaging the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) is and is watching it get worse and worse and the true facts are starting to come out about this legislation.  They realize that it could derail any chance they have at not only taking total control again of the House of Representatives, but also could cause a loss of control of the Senate, too.  As a result, they are hoping to pull the wool over the American public's eyes once again by delaying information until after an election.  Will the voters be fooled a third time?

Yesterday the Obama Administration announced that they would delay employer requirements for Obamacare until 2015, instead of maintaining the requirement of implementation by 2014.  This delays the American public from finding how out bad it will be until after the election so that the Democrats have a chance to not only maintain their control of the Senate, but give them a chance to take back the House.

The American voters fell for Obama's phony lines, his lies, in two elections.  The result was that the chance of digging out of the mess we're in was made virtually impossible with the results of the last election.

Will voters fall for it again?  That's the big question. Sadly the chances are great that they will.  Mankind is not known for learning from their mistakes.

One of my mentors always used to say to me that a smart man learns from his mistakes but a wise man learns from the mistakes of others.  We don't tend to learn from our own mistakes very often, especially in political situations.  And we never learn from the mistakes of others.  If we fall for their lies and coverups again, you can write the epitaph for America as we have known it.

Will you help people wake up and learn from past mistakes or will you ensure America's destruction by helping the left write our epitaph?  It's in your hands.  Every single person can make a difference and it starts with talking to friends, neighbors, co-workers, and people we meet.  It's time to start talking and take back America!
