An Inherent Contradiction
The Left’s Support of Obama’s Health Care Bill
March 25, 2010
One of the great things I love about being a commentator is that I have absolutely no need to be a great thinker or have any intellectual depth at all. I merely have to comment on the great thinkers and intellectuals of the day. To be fair, I more than often find myself commenting on the dullards and brain dead more than I do the great thinkers of the day, but that’s simply because the stuttering, drooling, brain dead pump out so much more material to comment on. The drivel flows endlessly from the mouths of the later, where it actually takes some time to be a great thinker or intellectual; and hence their output is considerably less.
In this case, I only wish I would have had the intellectual capacity to think of today’s topic. In actuality, it’s not even that great a thought, which even makes me angrier I didn’t see this obvious contradiction staring me in the face. While watching the coverage of the president’s health care proposals, one legislator, whom I wish I could give credit, but I can’t remember who it was, stated this glaringly obvious contradiction in the far left’s support of the takeover of the health care industry by the government. Listen very carefully as I make this point and elaborate a just a bit.
I don’t want to get into the abortion issue, but very simply, the left in this country has been making the argument for close to four decades now (ever since Roe v. Wade and subsequent Supreme Court rulings) that No One has the right to tell a women what to do with her body. In fairness, while I’m against abortion on a moral level, I stand firmly with those who insist no one can tell me what to do about my own body, or intrude on decisions of life and death which rightly belong to families. While the citizenry of this great land may have to agree to disagree on the abortion issue, it would be impossible to argue that this message hasn’t been vigorously and vehemently hammered home by the left every single day since those landmark rulings. How is it now that the left can so easily cast aside that position? How is it they are so willing to throw away their principles on this issue? Well that one’s pretty simply to answer; it was never a principled position in the first place. It was always just an argument to advance a social agenda.
The very simply truth about the newly passed health care law is that the government has granted itself the right to tell every single American, not just women, what to do with their bodies. Think it isn’t so? Read the maze that is the newly passed health care bill. They have granted themselves unprecedented powers to intrude and dictate to us on all medical decisions, which up until now were the most personal and private most us will ever have to make. How it is the left doesn’t see the inherent contradiction in this position?
Sure, with the publicly funded abortions, which are part of this horrendous bill, they can claim they are still protecting a woman’s right to choose. But where are the protections for those of us who choose life? I can answer that for you; they’ve been thrown out the window with the passage of this bill. They been stomped on and shredded, along with the constitution. Ask yourself, will they pay for the medical costs to bring a Down’s syndrome child into this world if a family so desires to see that pregnancy to term, or will they deem that child a potentially worthless and unproductive member of society, and grossly unworthy of receiving public funds? What about those of us who have dared to bring more than our 2.5 children and a dog into this world? Will we be penalized on child number 3, or will we simply be forced to terminate those pregnancies? Will the IRS, the named enforcement agency for this bill, knock on our doors and demand a trip to the abortion clinic? Or even worse, will pregnancies brought to term have those children ripped away from their mothers at birth like in China? Think it’s impossible? Read the Bill. The powers they’ve granted themselves in this bill are designed specifically to implement the far left’s most insidious agenda and grant them powers so far reaching and so outside the laws of nature or nature’s God, it demands us to rise up and see this legislative abortion repealed and stricken down.
We’ve known for years the how the far left views all human life. We are simply no better or worse than any other non-human life form. Actually, that’s not true ; we’re often valued far below some of the planet’s species. Need I enumerate the federal government’s actions on behalf of some the so called “endangered species” to the detriment of thousands of its own citizens? One only needs to look at the recent case of the federal government and its handling of water distribution in California’s drought stricken San Jacinto Valley. Research it, read about it and weep over the governments complete disregard for human life in order to protect a damn anchovy-like fish, which by the way no one’s ever heard or cares about other than a few wacked out, dope smoking environmentalists, simply to placate those same whacko environmentalists; and even more insidious, to exercise and display it’s power of life and death over the very citizen’s it’s sworn to serve. It’s a sickening display and exercise of a power never granted to the government neither by God nor the governed from which all political power is granted.
Most of us are far too busy trying to live life, take care of our families and survive in an increasingly difficult economic situation to read a 2700 page bill, purposefully crafted in legislative mumbo jumbo and legalese. It’s a damn pity we have to pay such close attention to what our legislators are doing, but in fact our founders warned us we’d have to be this vigilant. It’s simply inconceivable to most of us that our fellow citizens, those we’ve elected to represent us, would become so drunk with power, so riddled with corruption and arrogance that they would attempt to steal our most basics rights. As inconceivable as it is, it’s true . Fortunately there’s still time to return to the republic our founders so brilliantly constructed for us. A good start in that direction would be to throw these arrogant sobs out of office this coming November. Most people find it hard to sustain anger for very long. It simply takes too much energy and it drains us. As difficult as it is, I beg all of you to sustain it until the November elections and to vote only for those candidates who pledge to repeal this assault on our freedoms.
