The following are news headlines I observed: “Obama: ‘Health Insurance…Is Your Right,’” “HHS Launches Video Contest to Attract Young Obamacare Subscribers,” “State Dept. Panel Advises [Homosexual] Foreigners in Civil Unions to Get Married,” and “Obamacare Website Misleads on Abortion-Inducing-Drug Mandate.”
Here’s my point. In the absence of any viable merit to allowing the federal government to conscript one-sixth of the nation’s economy under Obama’s socialization of healthcare, the idea still isn’t selling well on the street. People are entrenched in their opposition to being forced to subscribe to something they are vehemently opposed to. And they are not forgetting how Obama looked into the cameras and called us liars and tried to bully us into silence pursuant to the truth of his nightmare healthcare plan.
Government healthcare won’t make healthcare more affordable; it will, in fact, increase the cost for individuals and families exponentially. We won’t be able to keep or even choose our own doctors as Obama assured us would be the case when he accused those of us informing the public of same of dealing in misinformation. Obama assured the public that hospitals and medical persons would not be forced to perform abortions if their religious and/or beliefs systems precluded same — once again another lie. He called us liars when we said the healthcare plan included death panels. He, in fact, was and is the liar because his healthcare plan does include death panels. He said illegal aliens would not be covered under the plan; we now know for a fact that illegal aliens will be covered 100 percent under the plan.
The list of Obama lies pursuant to his Erebusic healthcare legislation goes on and on, and the one thing we can be assured of is that he exempted all of congress from what he is trying to force us into taking. We are also aware that this is the government that has bankrupted social security, and that not only has no plans for fixing same, but also that engages in vicious ad hominem attacks against any person or group who suggests privatizing it. We know this is the same government that has virtually bankrupted the U.S. Post Office. And we know that this is the same federal government that is comprised of thieves, liars, frauds, tax-dodgers, known socialists and communists, and that has pigeon-holed for themselves escape clauses that allow them to engage in insider trading without penalty. This is the same Obama-led government that has virtually ensured everyone attending college will be saddled for years, if not forever, with the burdensome debt of student loans as the interest rate on the student loans goes up even though Obama said that would not happen. And we’re supposed to trust them and a pagan Philistine like Obama with one-sixth of the nation’s economy?
So what about the headlines? Obama hopes to drive a wedge between those of us who are old enough to understand exactly what our healthcare system is, and why it’s the best in the world, and youthful low-information people who can be deceived into believing they are getting something for nothing — until their first bill arrives.
We need to spend time with our children educating them about the truth of what is going on, and what is being done to them. People are constantly telling me how they fear the future for their children. I say if people are as afraid as they claim, they should be afraid precisely because of their children who are buying into the lies being told to them.
When my friends and I gather with our children the conversation always turns to educational and teaching moments about government, ad nauseum. When I was last in Pennsylvania, my friend, his wife, and I spent two evenings over dinner, sharing with their son. When my son joins us our conversations at some point always turn to teaching moments. The reward is when our children come back to us and tell us they saw examples of what we were saying and they thank us for illuminating them with the truth.
If there is a danger to our future, as people are quick to claim — it is from the poor parenting skills of those who spend more time exampling to their children how to be “clueless” than teaching them what the Declaration of Independence says.
