Obama’s Valentine to America…..free health care for life!

No child left behind was George W. Bush’s Obamacare. Most presidents seem to have a pet project. Obama‘s (duh!) is Obamacare. George W.’s was no child left behind. The purpose of a president’s pet project is usually proclaimed as a benefit to the people. But all too often, the thing turns out to be a power grab. The Trojan Horse seems to be a gift, but our enslavement lies within.

I’m sorry its taken me so long to write this. The food stampers keep hammering away at me. Tomorrow is the tenth, and they’ll get more free money. And I’ll get less sleep and more backache. And the wife made a valiant effort at posting the other night. But I promised to tell how 1) Obamacare will hurt our country. And 2) whoever the Republican nominee is, he will be a failure if he doesn’t repeal Obamacare. So lets see if I can keep my promises or not.

1. Obamacare is going to hurt our country.

When an old Reaganite like me finds himself in total agreement with an old socialist like Bernie Sanders and conservatives like Bush and McCain are pushing the same agenda as liberals like Kennedy and the Clintons, it’s high time to redraw the lines in American politics. An e-mail from a “Joe” in Tennessee to Lou Dobbs Tonight.

Look, I’m not going to question Obama’s motives (much) here. I know a lot of you folks like Obama. He’s a likeable guy. I don’t think that he’s hunched over in the basement of the White House stirring a bubbling cauldron and cackling as he sees Satanic inspired visions of America’s demise in said cauldron. I don’t doubt that on some level he is sincerely trying to do good for the American people.

But I believe he is sincerely wrong. Let’s do a quick examination of the problems with Obamacare.

It was reported that Obamacare would lower deficits by $138 billion. Sounds good (though I personally don’t see the economic reasons why this would be so…but I digress….these are the guys with the Harvard degrees…..I’m merely a retailer with two associates and a give-em-heck attitude….) It sounds good. And I earnestly hope that they are right, and I am wrong. But I find it hard to believe that figure when the former CBO director is quoted in the New York Times as saying  it “quickly generates additional deficits of $562 billion in the first ten years.” http://www.moneynews.com/StreetTalk/Obamacare-Bankrupt-Us-DouglasHoltz-Eakin/2010/03/24/id/353700

Granted, that “only” amounts to about $50 billion per year. But I’ve already documented that we’re spending our way into stone age misery. How can we afford another $50 billion per year? We are already at a state where our entire nation owes nearly as much as it earns. Don’t believe me? Check out this site. http://www.skymachines.com/US-National-Debt-Per-Capita-Percent-of-GDP-and-by-Presidental-Term.htm

According to skymachines.com, the debt amounts to $48, 358/ person. That’s right. Even if you yourself are debt free, you owe nearly a years salary to Red China, who holds the lion’s share of our debt.

About.com US government info reports that 8% of our debt is held by China. Which really doesn’t sound all that bad (do the math…you merely owe $3868.64 to Red China, personally. Cheer up! They surely won’t ever send jack-booted thugs over here to collect….). But then, the number is big enough when you consider three other things.

1. Chinese holdings of American debt continue to climb.

2. The Chinese are already getting antsy about how we are managing “their” money. They are like shareholders, after all….and there are board members of large companies that hold less then 8% of said company….For more about the growing investment in American debt by Chinese, and their growing concern/influence for/on the way we do things, see the New York Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/19/business/china-largest-holder-of-us-debt-remains-tied-to-treasuries.html?pagewanted=all

And 3) These are still the Red Chinese….you know, the people that gunned down their own in Tianamen Square when their people were peacefully protesting for freedom.

Perhaps we need a refresher coarse in history. Remember this?

Tianamen Square Massacre:

2. Whoever wins the nomination/election will fail if they don’t repeal Obamacare.

What has commonly been called rebellion has more often been nothing but a manly and glorious struggle in opposition to the lawless power of rebellious kings and princes. If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands that feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. Samuel Adams, address to the State House in Philadelphia, Aug. 1, 1776.

I’ll admit, these are harsh words. But I wish I had the guts to shout them out to Washington. To shout them at the top of my lungs as I’m being beset by hordes of customers as they decimate my shelves on the first of the month. Tyrants and despots in years past have always had cunning ways of showing the people how we, the people, benefited from slavery to them, the Lords of Creation. This is a nation founded on the principle that we would rather take care of ourselves. We don’t want a king or a bureaucracy telling us how we are going to live our lives. Yet, we let the Clintons, Obama, and the Bushes, tell us that, in turn for a little freedom, we’ll get the societal security of free health care.

No child left behind made sure our child care was left in the government’s hands. Thanks to government schools, posterity will “forget that ye were our countrymen.” But for very different reasons.

I’d like to thank uneditedpolitics.wordpress.com for their support.

    it does not take a majority to prevail … but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men. samuel adams
