I've been trying to decide what to say about Obama's health care plan that the House is probably going to pass (or at least "deem" passed) this weekend. I don't even know where to begin.
Ok, here's a start: THIS IS A HUGE, COLOSSAL, STUPENDOUS MISTAKE, AMERICA!!!!
Because this bill IS NOT ABOUT HEALTH CARE. It is about putting into place the framework for fundamentally transforming this nation into a Socialist/Marxist utopia. It is about power and control in the hands of a few elite in Washington. It is about the government takeover of one-sixth of the American economy. It's staggering.
The funny thing about total government control is that history proves it doesn't end well. Ever. Never in the history of the world has government been able to deliver on its promises and more often than not it ends up delivering oppression and even bloodshed.
That's why Progressives have tried so hard to rewrite history. I'm not sure if they actually intend to do harm to our country or if they are just arrogant enough to think that they can do total government right this time. Probably a little of both.
In the meantime while we've all been arguing about whether or not health care is a right we have forgotten to ask if this bill actually works. Oh it works alright. Just not in the way we've been promised.
Did you know that the so-called Health Care Bill also includes legislation that eliminates private funding for higher education loans? The government will now be the only source of education loans. Why is that alarming? Because whoever controls the purse strings controls who gets a loan, where they can go to school, and what they can study.
And don't you find it interesting that the same people who have argued for years about a woman's right to choose what to do with her own body now want to legislate what kind of fats and how much salt you can eat?
But America, this is not just Obama's and the Democrats' fault or Bush's and the Republicans' fault. This is OUR fault because we wanted to believe the lies they told us. We wanted to believe that we could have it all and not suffer any consequences. We wanted to believe that America is too big to fail. In our arrogance, we wanted to believe that the natural laws of economics didn't apply to us.
This is a turning point in our Nation's history. Our grandchildren will read about this day in their history books. Make no mistake--you must choose sides. If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem. This health care bill is a significant battle in the greater war against the usurping of liberty. One day our grandchildren will want to know, "Where were you when America destroyed itself?" I hope to tell mine that I was standing firmly rooted in the principles of liberty and speaking boldly without fear for freedom's sake. What will you tell yours?
