Social Healthcare – Read Between the Lines
Look around you and you’ll see the slow-motion descent into socialism beginning to accelerate. The foes of the Republic have always been around but today’s public has forgotten they exist.
There is a saying, ordo ab chao, or “order out of chaos”. Create the problem, control the reaction, offer the solution. A calculated effort to undermine the system of government we hold so dear has been underway for some time. They are winning, and they are picking up speed. They have created conditions such that you are begging them to take control of every facet of your life. You are begging for Socialism. Is that what you want?
I know that I don’t want the same federal government who failed us after Hurricane Katrina to be in control of my health care. But it seems I may not have a choice.
In this article from factcheck.org they expose the truth about the two Democratic candidates’ claims that their socialized medicine plans will cover all Americans.
Barack Obama’s plan offers insurance to every adult and forcibly insures all children. Hillary Clinton’s plan would forcibly insure every American. She is even open to the possibility of garnishing your wages, in other words stealing your money, to force you to comply.
Let us read between the lines, shall we? For what reason would Senator Clinton want to force you into a government-run health care system? The idea behind socialized medicine is that people who want insurance can’t get it. This would offer no explanation for why she would force everyone to get covered instead of simply offering it to anyone who chooses to participate. We don’t force poor people onto welfare, we don’t force the poor and elderly onto Medicaid and Medicare, so why make the insurance mandatory? There must be a reason.
It is only fair to ask if it even matters. Should we have a choice whether to pay for government health insurance? Do we have the right to choose not to be covered by health insurance? Certain religions prohibit the seeking of medical treatment in any instance. Do followers of these religions have a right to abstain from the program? What about me? Why should I be forced to pay for insurance? I think my money is better spent living a healthy lifestyle to prevent illness rather than buying insurance, which is, in essence, simply betting you’ll be so sick it will cost more than your insurance does. Is it not my right to choose to live healthier rather than gamble against my well-being? Isn’t it my right to choose to spend my money eating crap, smoking, and drinking, and not caring about my health? Isn’t it my right to not be covered by insurance, if I so choose?
But Senator Clinton would force every American to participate in the program, even against his or her will. What motive could she have, this obvious control-freak? What is it about the future of the program that people would be so opposed to as to not participate? I beg you to read between the lines. Go beyond the words on the page and the sounds from the television and use your brain.
