President Barack Obama and his party will stop at nothing to twist and distort our history to suit their radical agenda.

Our Founders tell us our God-given rights include the pursuit of happiness — the right to achieve the American Dream of success free from government oppression. Unbelievably, Democrat Nancy Pelosi is claiming that Obamacare, which forces us to buy expensive coverage or face the iron fist of the IRS, is an example of this freedom!

Thanks to Obamacare, says Pelosi, artists, musicians and poets now have "the liberty to pursue their dreams." Translation: higher taxes and insurance premiums on struggling, middle-class Americans will now provide health coverage for artistic "dreamers" so they can spend their time creating.

Obama and Pelosi's perversion of our Founding Fathers' intentions is disgusting — and I say this as a performing artist myself.

Had enough yet?
