Why ask such an obvious question? Consider what Socialism involves. In a Socialist State, the government redistributes the wealth. Whenever the government wants it, by definition what belongs to the “rich” belongs to the State. Because of the great “generosity” of the “rich,” our glorious leaders pay our bills. Therefore, we belong to our leaders.
Want an example? Consider Have You Gotten Your Biometric Screening Letter from Your Employer, Yet? Here Freedom, by the way considers yet another intrusive aspect of Obamacare.
Big Brother has arrived...neatly packaged in “The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” AKA Obamacare. Hubby received a notice today at work about “FREE BIOMETRIC SCREENINGS” for himself and his dependents that could save us from $17-$34 a month on premiums. (which, of course, doesn’t do much to offset the 29% increase which went into effect July 1, but I digress).
Right now, the biometric screening is voluntary. Which is a good thing because we have no intention of selling out our privacy for $34 a month. However, employer biometric screening and individual wellness plans will be MANDATORY under Obamacare in the not too distant future.
From a press release from a company called BIOQ, published August 14, 2013:
When we do not each accept our obligation to pay our own bills, we lose the right to make our own choices. Instead, we become the property of another’s dreams and ambitions.
You don’t think what you eat is any of your employer’s business? If a well-connected busybody such as Michelle Obama thinks otherwise, her government can say you are wrong, and you cannot object. That well-connected busybody will just have you classified as an extremist (a Tea Party racist, perhaps) who doesn’t know what’s good for him.
