Republican Scott Brown won a major upset victory in a special election to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated due to Ted Kennedy’s death. And this is in a state where Democrats outnumber Republicans by 3.5-to-1.
Is this a set-back to the government’s plan to socialize major aspects of our economy?
I predict that the upset in Massachusetts will not change a thing for the party in power. Many of them will see Brown’s victory as simply a referendum on Obama’s health care reform effort not recognizing all the other things that have people upset with our government… only playing lip service to growing jobs, the Federal take-over of private sector businesses, the radical growth of debt, “stimulus” spending that is nothing more than pork-laden political pay-offs to special interest groups, making secret deals to buy votes, their drive to increase taxes everywhere they can, and their condescending arrogance among other things.
By dismissing everything else and just focusing on health care, the Liberal ideologues will rationalize that they can dismiss health care as well because Massachusetts already has a publicly run system. If anything, the upset victory will cause the Leftists running our country to double-down in their efforts to force unsavory laws down the throats of the public. They realize that their time in power is short so they need to get on with making as much “progress” on their agenda as they can before their window of opportunity closes.
The fire that Brown’s victory is likely to light under our government Leftists will heat up the same attitude that Satan and his minions will have during the Tribulation… “Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time” (Revelation 12:12, NKJ). “This is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world” (1 John 4:3).
I hope I’m wrong about how our government leaders will respond to the Brown victory. But if we are as close to the Tribulation as so many trends indicate, then the government will proceed with their radical plans with no regard to public opinion. This is what has been happening in California where the public has expressed their desire at the polls for marriage to be limited to a man and a woman but government leaders and judges have continually defied the will of the people.
The freedoms we have long enjoyed in this country are slowly and surely being eroded away. So we should have the attitude of Jesus who said, “I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work” (John 9:4).
