The Moral and Economic Arguments Against Government Health Care and For Freedom in Health Care

This is a really great video that gets to the heart of the matter in arguing against Government Health Care. This issue is, I think, the most important issue that must be defeated if we are to retain our private, individual lives in any meaning of the term.

The argument which almost no one will confront is the altruist argument - that you should be concerned about your nameless neighbor's health, that he must be taken care of, and you should feel guilty if you don't. If you can handle that argument emotionally and intellectually, then it will be possible to win this fight.

I suggest you bookmark this link when you get it up on your computer screen. Given our culture, you have to remember the access point to making it and you need to be able to ask the questions which will bring up their false reasons. At that point, you can highlight it and offer the counter argument and benefits of freedom.

If you want to know what this health care is ultimately going to look like, go to your county public health clinic and ask for an appointment. (They especially like treating STDs since they can be a public health problem. If you have arthritis or heart trouble, don't bother.) Contrary to all of the ballyhoo on Government Health Care, the truth is that you will suffer health care rationing and lost time waiting in lines to get it. The plans used in Great Britain and Canada are a disaster.

No one remembers that Progressivism is based largely in eugenics, the science which sought to perfect the human race. Progressivism began in 1890 and ran for 30 to 40 years. And Progressivism is the doctrine to which modern Democrats owe their allegiance. Hillary openly named it. Obama said, "I'm not a socialist; I prefer to be called a Progressive."

When the government controls people's lives it decides who lives and dies. Naturally it will make sense to make those choices based on some criteria and that criteria will be eugenics or political patronage. What you want will be lost along with the free market in health care.

We already see the push toward the Nanny State - where the government tells us what to eat and that we must exercise and on and on. It will pass laws "encouraging" this behavior making it prohibitive to eat what we would prefer and generally enjoy our lives as we see fit. This pernicious government activity is where we are headed and Government Health Care is the big, big access to gaining this control.

And never forget: Hitler's atrocities were based on eugenics.

With Obama firing the IG of Americorp, Gerald Walpin, saying that he was so "confused" and "disoriented" that there was reason to question "his capacity to serve" such that he did not give the required 30-day notification (a law which he wrote), you wonder who is dazed and confused.

If Obama can utter statements which I cite above such as this, "'I've always been a strong believer in the power of the free market' after he had commandeered AIG, GM, Chrysler, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac rending them un-free to act..." (and this is only the latest of such contradictions), you wonder what alternate universe he lives in. Is it Walpin or is it Obama that is "dazed" and "confused?"
