Also, I have something to say about universal healthcare and this whole business about us being the only industrialized country without it. That is not an argument. Just because other nations have universal healthcare doesn't make it a good practice. In order to cement my point I am going to use a bible verse to show that this argument has been used for a long, long time.
1 Samuel 8:4-22: All the elders of Israel gathered together and to Samuel
of Ramah. They said to him, "...appoint a king to lead us, such as all
the nations have."....
Samuel told all the words of the Lord to the people who were asking him for
a king. He said, "This is what the king who will reign over you will do: ....He
will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yorselves will become his
slaves. When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you
have chosen, and the Lord will not answer you in that day."
But the people refused to listen to Samuel. "No!" they said: We want a king
over us. Then we will be like all the other nations, with
a king to lead us and to go out before us and fight our battles."
When the people reject Obamacare, which I think they will, (or I hope they will) then the healthcare issue will inevitably rise again some other day. Once again the Dems will use tactics to paint our healthcare not as imperfect, but as broken and promise it will be fixed and free of cost. I fear that one day the people will listen to these promises and on that day the government will truly have power over our lives. They will ration coverage, abort the unwanted and restrict care for the elderly. I fear it will be a form of population control and I also fear healthcare will be a form of leverage. When we don't have control over our health, a new form of slavery will take place.
