Proposition C . . . a message to Barack Obama and the Democrats

Missouri's Proposition C, purportedly allowing Missourians to "opt out" of Obamacare's mandatory healthcare coverage provisions, is passing with overwhelming numbers.  (Link here.)

Legally, that probably won't matter as federal law will preempt the new state law but that wasn't the point of Proposition C.  The point was to send a clear message to the advocates of the Democrats' healthcare "reform" package that was wheeled, dealed, and lied into law earlier this year.  Consider the message sent.

But, unfortunately, I doubt that the intended audience is listening.  How long has it been since the Democrats in Washington gave a [darn] about what us common folk out in the country thought?  Have they ever?  I don't see much evidence that Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi or their ilk are very concerned about what we think.

I am curious to see if the message gets through closer to home.  What will the Democrats' newly-minted nominee for the U.S. Senate say about Obamacare now that the voters she's courting have spoken with such a loud voice?

I'm curious but that's about all.  Robin Carnahan is an Obamite, through and through.  Whatever she says now, she'll be saying to get elected.  If elected, she'll be a rubber stamp for the Obama agenda.  (For fun, check out this link.)

Seriously, the elections this November matter - a great deal.  Missouri needs Roy Blunt.  America needs Roy Blunt.

I can't say it enough.  And I'll be saying it often for the next three months.
