It's been a while since I have had the time and energy to write a post of my own here. Much has happened in the interim. It is mighty tempting to title this post "We Told You So" because conservatives and those who actually bestirred themselves to read or at least skim the erroneously named Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act did our best to warn America of what was in it.
Ms. Pelosi famously said: "We have to pass the bill to find out what's in it". No ma'am. As a member of Congress, it was one of your most basic duties to READ the bill to find out what was in it BEFORE you voted on it. That aside, I think Ms. Pelosi and her fellow criminals in the 111th Congress who voted for this monstrosity knew exactly what was in it. They knew it would kill millions of Americans, because that is one of the purposes of this piece of excrement. It was designed to allow the government to legally kill people in a way that wouldn't incite a violent uprising in the American people - because, as I have been told over and over by the bill's apologists - its the LAW now.
And that's the thing. Slavery was the law at one time too, but it was bad law and here in America, we have, not only the ability to change bad law, but the duty to do so. Americans are a law abiding people and those currently in power and their minions and useful innocents know this. They are counting on it.
As a law abiding people with the authority and duty to change the government when it becomes abusive or tyrannical, we have a duty to remove this "law" from the books entirely. It violates our 4th amendment right to privacy along with forcing us to engage in commerce at the whim of government, which is clearly abusive of our self evident but un-enumerated right to use our resources, financial or otherwise, as we see fit.
The truth of the PPAACA that Americans are waking up to as their health insurance premiums have been raised to the sky or their health insurance has been cancelled altogether, is that this is a threat to our form of government, our property, and our very lives. There will be consequences for that threat. There must be or the government bullies, who have been put in places of power by the degraded character of a nation that farms out the individual duties of charity to an over sized and uncaring, faceless government, will only escalate, because bullies and abusers who face no consequences for their actions always do.
Right now those bullies, and they are people who sincerely believe that they are driving the evolution of humanity to the next level through their Utopian, socialist nonsense, regardless of the cost in lives that such philosophy has engendered EVERY SINGLE TIME it has raised it's ugly head in human history, are crying to their dear leader to do something. Save them from their folly - at least until they can be re-elected - at which point the deathcare will resume along its intended path.
Their dear leader has responded. By ordering private companies to ignore the law for a year. I am at a loss to produce one president in the history of the USA who has thought he had the authority to order private companies to do anything. That is because the president has no such authority here. There are no kings in the republican form of government given to us by our founders who were guided by the Hand of Divine Providence. Yet he has done so and without even offering compensation for the work required by such an order.
I do not think that the threat of death and pain to our families, friends and neighbors as well as to ourselves can be brought back into comfortable denial by such a tactic, even were it allowed to stand, (which it had best not be or there should be more than democrats fearing for their re-elections) because I hope and pray that Americans have just been given the wake up call they really need to see what is happening to our nation.
The claim of the tyrants and bullies is that the free market system doesn't work for health care - even though the free market system -even hobbled as it is by excessive government regulation - has already built the best health care system in the world.
The claim of the tyrants is that the poor will be given free access to the health care they need under this monstrosity. the truth is that, given the outrageous premiums and deductibles, the poor will be made much poorer and still be unable to access health care.
The claim of the tyrants is that the cost of health care will go down. The truth is that a single page of regulations on any industry has never resulted in lower prices. We can only imagine how high theprice of health care will be driven by 20,000+ pages of regulations.
The claim of the tyrants is that "if you like your plan you can keep it". The truth is that 5 million+ Americans have already lost their health insurance and millions more will be unable to afford the premiums for the new plans they are being offered. The truth is that this monstrosity was designed to steal the wealth of Americans and kill them when they become "useless eaters" in the eyes of these tyrants. Unless there is anyone left who still thinks the IRS will not play partisan politics with our health care.
The head tyrant has ordered, ordered the insurance companies - private businesses - to embark upon a high cost reversion of actions they have taken to comply with this monstrous "law" until the 2014 elections are over in order to restore the awakening giant to a passive slumber. The truth is that he and his minions have threatened us and our children and our families. A threat that remains active, because cancer patients and others who just had their vital, lifesaving treatment yanked out from under them with the cancellation of plans they liked and counted on will not forget, if they survive. I suspect their families will not forget if they don't.
So, America, look around you and ask yourself: which of my family members, neighbors or friends would I trust with my life and the lives of my family?". Then go out and get those people to run for office - because we desperately need trustworthy people of good character to replace the tyrants and bullies we have now. For those who helped to put those tyrants and bullies into place - you need to take a break from voting until you have educated yourselves on this nation, what government is and is not to do for you and your responsibilities to her.
