|Criticisms of this man never had anything to do with ethnicity. The ideas of his regime were simply not good for America, and never made sense. (Photo found at www.freerepublic.com)|
This week, for the first time, national media began to ask the questions they should have been asking about President Obama's plans for our nation, in 2008. His presidency has ushered in a health care law which was passed "so that lawmaker's could see what was in it". That's like taking a chemotherapeutic agent in order to personally analyze it. Mainstream media finally wondered if Obamacare was sustainable as a practice. Of course, the website debacle is symptomatic of an incompetent regime all round, and should not have been a surprise. Finally, members of mainstream media wondered if Obamacare was simply designed to collapse the health care system in our country, ushering in a one payer system where teams of local physicians decide whether you are young enough and productive enough to have your issues treated. In such a system, our very limited health care resources would be spent on those who are young, and are working. In a one payer system, young people are given priority over older ones. In England, for example, a person who receives dialysis is told, up front, that this will be done for them, free of charge for a period of five years, and then their seat at the dialysis machine will be given to another person, also for five years. People are not given what they, in fact, might medically require. They are given what is expedient and cost effective. In England, many people still simply accept that they have good health care. They ask no questions, even when the National Health Service failed to allocate funds for hospital cleaning. This belief cost my beloved aunt, her life.
Mr. Obama is and always has been. a community organizer with socialistic ideas and friends who espouse the radical redistribution of wealth and assets in the United States. This is clear in his books which America should have read, as I did, prior to the 2008 election. He has not been a watchful or careful president for our nation. Instead, he has played the great equalizer. As Brazil, India, and other nations made progress economically, he has repeatedly taken actions which lost jobs and made life in the US, very difficult for families, decimating America's middle class. This week Wal-Mart associates are having Thanksgiving drives for other Wal-Mart associates who can't afford a Thanksgiving dinner. Obamacare, a much more expensive alternative to a free market system will decimate the American family, leaving savings, vacations, and college a memory of the past. Forty seven million people are on food stamps in America now. Welcome to socialism.
You and I might shake our heads at how such a large number of Americans were taken in by an articulate man who spoke with conviction, but who hadn't done any of his homework, and who knows nothing about economics, let alone the history of socialism in the world. However, Obama himself is probably pleased. He tinkered with many of the aspects of American life which helped to make our nation successful and broadly innovative. He has dismantled a lot of America in a very short time. Through executive order on holidays, or the eve of holidays, he took back freedoms, on a regular basis. He took over one sixth of the American economy. In effect, he acted to bind the proud lion that was the United States of America while giving other nations the chance to regroup, enjoy our jobs that have been relocated there, and economically surpass us. It's not that he has been an abyssmal president to us. He has been an excellent president to the Third World, and I suspect that President of the World is what he was running for, all along.
All we can do is continue to demand that Obamacare be completely scrapped and rescinded, because no matter what is done with a half baked website which is inadequate to the tasks at hand, it still represents a plan for America which is equally half baked, grotesque, and continues to a path of inadequate poor quality medicine with poor quality of life for America. Once rescinded, we would need to start again. If America liked that preexisting conditions could not be used as grounds for refusal of insurance, then such a law should be passed and ratified. We could have revised some of the access issues and problems in our health care insurance without throwing the baby out with the bathwater. What made America great was its freedoms, which are currently being gutted wherever we look.
