America’s Second Revolution
Where do you think the money is coming from right now to pay for it all—where does the government get its fabled unlimited money?
President Barack Obama and the Democrats have just declared war on America. The commander-in-chief of the superpower
nation who is widely perceived as a Marxist is determined to push for his single-payer health care reform by all means possible.
Despite the mounting opposition of most Americans, Obama is hell-bent on his health care reform that is indubitably against the American Constitution, which he described as a document of “negative liberties.”
Obama’s repudiation of the Constitution is revealed by his radio interview in 2001, seven years before his “spread the wealth” comment to Joe The Pumbler, wherein he said that “redistributive change” is needed. Describing the American constitution as “a charter of negative liberties, Obama said: “Says what the states can’t do to you. Says what the federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the federal government or state government must do on your behalf.”
As a lawyer, Obama clearly understood that the charter clearly defines the fundamental role of government: the protection of individual rights. It does not provide that the people have the right to free health care simply because before the government can have something to distribute it must obtain money or wealth from the people who produce. In essence, the concept of a right pertains only to freedom of action. “Right” fundamentally means freedom from physical compulsion, interference or coercion by other men. This simply means health care is never a right, and most Americans understand it.
If nationwide polls were conducted tomorrow, an overwhelming majority of the Americans would reject Obama and Nancy Pelosi’s single-payer health care system that would force Americans to take government-funded health care even if it’s against their will. The election of Republican Scott Brown in the US Senate by the voters in Massachusetts proves that most Americans are getting tired of the unpopular Obamacare.
Just recently Virginia lawmakers have passed legislation that aims to thwart any federal requirement that individuals buy health insurance. At least 29 statehouses are considering similar so-called Health Care Freedom Acts, but Virginia is the first to approve the bill. Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, a Republican, is expected to sign it.
The American people have spoken: they are against the Obamacare.
In a speech in 1993, Dr. Leonard Peikoff, the founder of the Ayn Rand Institute, provided an intellectual and philosophical argument against America’s health care reform. He declared that health care is not a right.
Under the American system you have a right to health care if you can pay for it, i.e., if you can earn it by your own action and effort. But nobody has the right to the services of any professional individual or group simply because he wants them and desperately needs them. The very fact that he needs these services so desperately is the proof that he had better respect the freedom, the integrity, and the rights of the people who provide them.
You have a right to work, not to rob others of the fruits of their work, not to turn others into sacrificial, rightless animals laboring to fulfill your needs.
Some of you may ask here: But can people afford health care on their own? Even leaving aside the present government-inflated medical prices, the answer is: Certainly people can afford it. Where do you think the money is coming from right now to pay for it all—where does the government get its fabled unlimited money? Government is not a productive organization; it has no source of wealth other than confiscation of the citizens’ wealth, through taxation, deficit financing or the like.
without firing a shot. Limbaugh states:
During the height of the Cold War, some feared the communists would take over the United States without firing a shot. Could it be that nearly a half-century later, we’re on the verge of that becoming a reality?
President Barack Obama and Democratic congressmen won their respective elections — no shots were fired — and they are feverishly attempting to dismantle this nation’s institutions, brick by brick.
The American people are getting a bird’s-eye view of what the left, which completely dominates the Democratic Party, thinks of the Constitution, freedom and the right of the people to self-governance.
The people now attempting to govern us with an iron fist are Marxist-leaning in terms of not only the policies they support but also the ruthless tactics they employ to enact those policies into law.
President Obama’s health care “reform” plan has been criticized for being economically unsustainable, politically unpopular, and constitutionally suspect. But for many practicing physicians like myself, his plan contains an even greater but seldom-discussed flaw that overshadows those others. ObamaCare would fatally compromise doctors’ ability to uphold their Hippocratic Oath to treat their patients according to their best judgment and ability.
Whenever the government attempts to guarantee “universal health care,” it must also control that service, if only to control costs. Hence, it will inevitably seek to control how doctors practice. Accordingly, the White House Council of Economic Advisors has recommended controlling costs through “performance measures that all providers would adopt.” Physicians who strayed too far from government “comparative effectiveness” practice guidelines would be punished as “high end outliers.”
This will place your doctor’s medical conscience directly on a collision course with government bureaucrats.
Another American doctor, Lee Hieb, made the following commentary on the Obamacare:
No, health care is not a right. It is a service, just like the food service, or transportation. They may be important to out lives — hey, food is more critical than medicine. But they are not rights. We cannot demand food at the grocery store, and pay according to our ability. We cannot force a care dealer to sell us a care at “Medicare” discount rates because we need transportation to get us to work.
Now doctors, pharmacies, American troops and common Americans have declared their strong opposition to Obama, Hillary Clinton and Pelosi health care reform program. A recent survey shows that one-third of American doctors may leave practice of the President signs the infamous health care bill. In fact, even Obama’s cousin, Dr. Milton Wolf, a physician, denounces the health care reform. The number of Tea Partiers has also increase, as tens of thousands of Tea Party rallyists have promise to troop to Capitol Hill in opposition to Obama’s health care bill.
On the other hand, speakers at last week’s meeting in Kenai of the Second Amendment/Constitutional Task Force said that America is headed for armed, bloody uprising against an oppressive federal government.
“Authority comes from being congruent from natural law, God’s law. Power comes from the barrel of a gun,” said Schaeffer Cox of Fairbanks, a leader of the Second Amendment Task Force in Alaska and co-founder of the Fairbanks-based Alaska Peacemakers Militia. “The federal government is all power and no authority. The Constitutional Congress is all authority and no power. So we’re faced with this question: Do we condone a rebellious government and become an accessory to that with our compliance, or do we come together and try to find a way to put force, put power with that authority?”
The rest of the free world needs to look at what’s happening now in America simply because the first free nation founded by Thomas Jefferson, George Washington and John Adams is still the last stand of freedom and reason.
