We were also suppose to rush into the nationalization of our health care. Supposedly, even though most people are happy with their health care, we have a crisis. Fortunately, before our glorious leaders were able to herd and shear us like sheep, enough people wised up.
So it is I was over at Good Sense, and I came across an old post (here). Charlie had quoted the following.
It’s all about giving the state control over biggest part of our lives. That may not be the intent of the people who are advocating ObamaCare. In fact, for the most part, I think they have good intentions, but we know where that leads in the end.
The quote came from an old Below the Beltway post (here). Curious, I read the entire post. Then I read Vast‘s comment (here). Vast had provided his minimum conditions for giving up on the public option.
Disgusted, old post or not, I left this comment of my own.
Vast – Where I think you are confused is in the belief that we will get something from our government just because we will it so. Government never has worked that way. The more power we give our leaders to “help” us, the more control they have over us.
Look back over history. The normal condition for the bulk of the population in any country is slavery. The health care of slaves is at the convenience of the masters. Hence the slaves that get the best care are house slaves. Masters do so love their “pets.”
If we the People want good health care or good anything else, then we must take the time to understand what the Founders did when they wrote the Constitution. The Founders created a system of constitutional government that pitted the power brokers against each other. They divided both the Federal and state governments into executive, legislative, and judicial branches. In addition, they created a federation, pitting state governments against the Federal Government.
Finally, and this is the most important part, the Founders deliberately limited the power of government. Instead of making government responsible for everything, they let the People buy from and sell to each other in an open market place (with some regulations to ensure honest transactions). So it is we each get to choose the doctors who care for our health, the stores where we buy our bread, the house we live in, the cars we drive, the clothes we wear, and so many other things.
And what works best? Where do we have to stand in long lines or wait in traffic jams? Who is more likely to arbitrarily deny us our preferences? Do the things we choose for ourselves in a free market or the things our government “gives” us cause us the most trouble and heartache?
Because of our government-run education system, it seems too many do not understand the devious nature of humanity, particularly that of the ambitious people who lead us. Otherwise, we would all understand that the so-called public option is unconstitutional. Otherwise, we would know better than to trust people who are so anxious to break their oath of office.
Anyway, if you get your public option, you had best hope one of the masters considers you and your family his pets. (from here)
Because they want what they want, and they do not understand why they cannot have it, people like Vast will not give up easily. Since he wrote his comment, he has written a post (here) reaffirming his crying and whining support for the public option, government-run health care. Vast and his like will rob us by taxing us, hand our hard earned money over to rascals, and bankrupt our nation. So get your tea bags and join the party.
