“Medicine is the keystone in the arch of socialism” – Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
Lenin knew that in order to control the masses you needed to control their very being, their very body. That is why socialized medicine is so fraught with danger. Socialized medicine is the ability of the state, not private citizens, to control the health and well being of its citizens. The very basis of freedom is freedom of self.
Which brings us to last night. Our mothers always told us that “nothing good happens after midnight”. They were never more right than last night. At around 1:00 a.m., when the vast marjority of Americans were in bed, the United States Senate voted 60-40 to end cloture on Health Care legislation. This means that by the end of this week, most probably on Christmas Day the Senate will vote to pass a form of healthcare legislation.
After the Senate passes this legislation it then goes to conference committee. In conference committee the “bill” will again be completely rewritten. The rewritten conference committee bill will then be voted on up or down by both houses of congress sometime in January. Therein lies the problem.
The conference committee can rewrite a completely new bill. It could have triggers to “universal” coverage in it it. It could enact the law in 2010 and not 2014 as currently written. Anything can, and probably will happen. That was why it was so important to kill that bill last night, and that is why it was so important to Barack Obama that the Massachusetts legislature ignore the rule of law to allow Deval Patrick the ability to appoint Paul Kirk as the 60th vote.
Last nights vote was not about healthcare, it was about “transforming America”, to be Barack Obama’s America, to be Wayne Rathke, his mentor’s, America, to be Bill Ayres’ America. The vote last night was to start us on the road to universal healthcare and state control of our lives.
2010 may be our last chance to turn the tide against the ever increasing march of socialism in this country. I can think of no better way to start turning that tide than by electing Scott Brown as the 41st Senator. Have you helped Scott in any way yet?
