The author of NooneOfAnyImport’s Blog, nooneofanyimport, has moved on to a bigger and better blog, Da Tech Guy On DaRadio Blog. As Linda Szugyi, she has just put up her second post, The Key to Defeating the Left: Fill the Blank in Phase Two!

Here is how it starts.

As a general rule, I like being right.  Whether in politics, or when my child has “looked everywhere and it’s not there,” or whatever the occasion.  It feels good to be right, especially when somebody else is insisting over and over that I am wrong.

The bestest part is when an opponent actually realizes his mistake.  Awareness dawns; the arguments trail off . . . oh the joy of that moment.

What a shame I haven’t been able to enjoy being right about Obamacare.  Vats of Schadenfreude are ready for drinking.  It looks delicious, this German brew.  Then the floodofpainfulstorieson the internet, as well as first-hand accounts from friends, puts a damper on the mood. (continued here)

I suppose God has a sense of humor, but for similar reasons He does not laugh at us, not even when we stubbornly ignore Him and do something dumb anyway. The consequences are just too grim, and laughing at someone else’s pain is wrong.

What do I like about Linda’s post? She makes it clear that battle is not about Obama. Because of the way we are made, we each have a tendency personalize our joys and our woes, to make “it” about the leader, but defeating Socialism is not about Obama. We have a government to protect the rights of our family, friends, and neighbors, not just Obama’s rights. We pay workers in the health care industry to help us stay well and to cure us (if they can) when we are ailing. We don’t pay Obama to do that, and we don’t pay him to get in the way, but that is what he and the Democratic Party have been doing. And why? The Democratic Party has convinced too many of our family, friends and neighbors that Socialism (here of late socialized medicine) can be made to work.

Therefore, because we all need some perspective — to remember what we are fighting about — I think that it would do us all some good to read Linda’s post.

As we read Linda’s post, we should note, however, that in one respect the health care debacle is about Obama, and it is also about the leaders of the Democratic Party. Instead of helping our family, friends, and neighbors, the Democratic Party’s efforts to impose Socialism represent a huge power grab, their object to make our government about leadership of Democratic Party.  As far as the Democrat leadership is concerned, Obamacare never was about providing The People health care. It was just a means to acquiring power. Thus, they have a different definition of success for Obamacare.

As far as the Democrat leadership is concerned, is Obamacare a success? No. Not yet. Consider that we have too many on the government dole. Just as we should fear being taxed without representation, we should also fear those who have representation without taxation. In the latter lies the beginnings of tyranny.

In her article, Linda speaks of how the Left intended to achieve universal health care. She speaks of phases.

  • Phase One:  Implement Obamacare
  • Phase Two:  ?
  • Phase Three:  Universal Coverage!

Phase Two is supposedly a mystery, but is it? If we assume the leadership of Democratic Party has the usual nefarious motives of those seeking power, the answer is no. Whenever Socialism is tried, does it ever actually work as advertised? Of course not. And what does the Democratic Party usually do when its socialist schemes stumble and fall? With the help of those in the corporate mass media, don’t they just blame their opponents and prop up their messes with demands for more time, more money, and more power? So what is Phase Two?

  • Phase One:  Implement Obamacare
  • Phase Two:  Blame Bush, Blame The Republican Party, Blame The Tea Party, Blame The Greedy Health Insurance Industry,……. Blame Obama for allowing himself to be fooled by Bush, The Republican Party, The Tea Party, The Greedy Health Insurance Industry,…… and demand more time, higher taxes, and more power
  • Phase Three:  Universal Coverage!

For leadership of Democratic Party, Obamacare provides just one more bribe to buy the votes of those on the dole with the taxpayer’s money. And when those in the corporate mass media keep telling them it is okay, those on the dole are too easily tempted. So the Democrat Leadership will stall (delay what is not “working” until after the next election) and give their propaganda time to work.

Can such a form of government work? No, but that just leads to two more phases. In the fourth phase, majoritarian tyranny in the form of Socialism leads to chaos. In the fifth phase, a monarch or oligarchs take power by promising to end the chaos.

  • Phase One:  Implement Obamacare
  • Phase Two:  Blame Bush, Blame The Republican Party, Blame The Tea Party, Blame The Greedy Health Insurance Industry,……. Blame Obama for allowing himself to be fooled by Bush, The Republican Party, The Tea Party, The Greedy Health Insurance Industry,…… and demand more time, higher taxes, and more power
  • Phase Three:  Universal Coverage!
  • Phase Four: Economic and governmental chaos
  • Phase Five: Monarch or Oligarchs take power with the promise to end the chaos

Don’t want to go to those last two phases? Then read Linda’s post, The Key to Defeating the Left: Fill the Blank in Phase Two!

  1. Really great point, Tom. That is exactly what was in their Phase II all along. It just didn’t start out as smoothly as they hoped. They accidentally let the truth be too obvious. And phase 4 and 5 are dead on accurate I love it when you take an idea in one of my posts and build on it.

    I’m still clinging to the idea that I haven’t moved on. I just need to get myself sorted a little better, and I can blog in both places. But I’m real happy to be contributing to Da Tech Guy right now b/c I was having a hard time maintaining discipline necessary for regular posting, real writing, and this is forcing me to do so. And I was sick of being anonymous, & this is a great way to end that.

    Sure hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful.

      I am glad you enjoyed my post. Thank you, and Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

      I have had an opportunity to post at more than one web site (nothing like Da Tech Guy), and I have found it frustrating. Because we can only stretch so far, most of us can only ride one horse at a time. So we have to choose. Alternatively, we can team our horses and then ride in the wagon (posting the same articles on both sites). However, if you try that I suspect you will then discover that your horses are unequally yoked.

      So don’t worry. You are publishing good material at Da Tech Guy. Nothing wrong in finding contentment in that.
