The revolution is being broadcast on <a href=”http://www.twitter.com”>Twitter,</a> as Conservatives rush to block the impending Obamacare Obamanation.
America is on the move. But why, really? What is this thing that so energize both sides of the political spectrum? It’s a highly divisive issue that really moves both sides to their roots, and here’s why:
Democrats (and Liberals) see this as the mother lode of all Social Welfare Programs. This is true, unadulterated cradle-to-grave socialism. It’s a way to guarantee that they will be in power forever. They can throw around veiled references to how bad it will be if Republicans take away their “entitlement” to Healthcare.
Conservatives see this as a death knell to the Free Enterprise system. I saw a guy on Facebook asking “which is more important; Freedom or Capitalism?” The truth is, the two are interdependent. Capitalism can’t survive or flourish without some form of Freedom. There’s a reason it’s called “Free Enterprise. The version of Capitalism in use currently in China is highly regulated, strictly enforced, tightly legislated . . . and extremely powerful. Already it’s made more changes in China than have occurred in the last 3000 years — which is driving the Chinese leadership to distraction.
And that distraction means more freedom for China.
Which leads to more capitalism. Interdependent, see?
Rush Limbaugh said on his radio show today “This is Tyranny!” when referring to the Healthcare bill. Here’s why:
It will require — not suggest, but require under penalty of law — that everyone purchase Health Insurance. If you don’t you pay a $5000 fine, and you will be enrolled in the government’s form of single-payer Healthcare.
Where’s the freedom? Is it a good idea to NOT have healthcare insurance, No, but you can’t tell me that guys like Rush Limbaugh or Warren Buffet – who can pay cash for their healthcare — should be REQUIRED to enroll in the government healthcare.
And it’s a basic grab at the personal choices of the individual. That’s YOU, folks.
When a government becomes so oppressive that it requires that all citizens perform some task or make the same choice as all other citizens – the citizenry has no more CHOICE.
And that is Tyranny, purely and simply. And these imbeciles pushing for this against all the will of the people — are by no means representatives of the people as the constitution dictates they be.
And if you think we will be able to repeal this mess of a bill in November when we vote in new conservative representatives — you’ve got another think coming. This is a logistical nightmare; a black hole of red tape that rivals even the Gordian knot.
It’s the chinese finger puzzle of all chinese finger puzzles.
It will fundamentally affect Healthcare companies in America do business — and will very likely drive many of them out of business. And from that point there is no going back. Ever.
Now, I want to back up for a minute. Past the rhetoric. Past the finger puzzles. Past the questions of Liberty or Tyranny. Ask yourself one question. I’m a Christian, so I’ll address this primarily from a Christian perspective.
Will this help people or hurt them?
Think about that for a second. Will help, or hurt?
Well, it will take away basic freedoms. It will fundamentally change the way we do business. It will put oppressive taxes on the citizens (most countries with governmental healthcare have taxes in the 60-80% range. Look it up.) It will reduce coverage for most people and only extend coverage to 95% of all American — meaning 5% will STILL be without Healthcare.
How is ANY of that BETTER???
None of it is any better. None of us would want this for ourselves or our families.
So under the “Do unto others” rule (which applies to most major religions -I’ve read your books, buddhists) and under the “welfare of the poor” rule in Islam, it does not meet the requirements of any of the major religions.
And don’t even get me started on the “government funded abortions” thing.
This is Tyrrany. This is Anti-religion. This is anti-freedom.
The revolution has started; and President Obama started it.
Call your congressman. Call your Senator. Call your Governor and local legislator. Texans, call Governor “Do-Nothing” Perry who was so big on the Tenth Amendment during the primaries and is suddenly silent now.
Call them. Call them now. Call them tomorrow. Call them Saturday.
As one pundit observed on the Glenn Beck Show today, this bill will be passed on a Sunday — during Lent — that will keep your legislators out of church when they need it the most.
That can NOT be a good thing.
Call them Call them now. 877-762-8762, or 202-224-3121, or 202-225-3121.
As Rush observed on his website, “If the phones are busy, call again. That’s the POINT!”
