“Medicine is the keystone in the arch of Socialism”

“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? Please do so today, you can start by donating to him now.

  • We can thank Massachusetts for the debacle now about to pass in Washington.

    Not sure why this piece ends with helping Scott Brown – he voted for RomneyCare/ObamaCare…

    The vote last night was to start us on the road to … state control of our lives.

    Hate to break it to you man, but the state has been calling all the shots for a long time now. There may still be an occasional skirmish but in general the battle ended sometime around sometime around media consolidation and Oprah sedating the masses.

  • The Dems can’t start spending for nationalized care in 2010. They need the fictional 800 billion pricetag, look at Sen. Webb’s statement from last night. If he has to be honest about the true cost, 2.5 trillion, he either has to vote No or retire in 2012.

    Republicans need to stop compaining about the process, which is corrupt and focus on the costs, in treasure and freedom that this legislation entails.

    …the “father” of universal health care paid by the state was iniated by the Conservative Otto Von Bismark in the 1880s in what is now Germany.  Long before Lenin.  So stop the red baiting fear tactics…first it was Obama is like Hilter (a narrative Eabo pushed) and now we’ve fallen back to Obama is like Lenin.  Of course the truth is we’re not even close to the “socialized health care” you cry about.  And if we were, we would be emulating the actions of a conservative cira 1880.    

  • Hayek on Health Insurance

    http://www.ordinary-gentlemen….

    “Nor is there any reason why the state should not assist the individuals in providing for those common hazards of life against which, because of their uncertainty, few individuals can make adequate provision. Where, as in the case of sickness and accident, neither the desire to avoid such calamities nor the efforts to overcome their consequences are as a rule weakened by the provision of assistance – where, in short, we deal with genuinely insurable risks – the case for the state’s helping to organize a comprehensive system of social insurance is very strong… Wherever communal action can mitigate disasters against which the individual can neither attempt to guard himself nor make the provision for the consequences, such communal action should undoubtedly be taken,” – The Road To Serfdom (Chapter 9).

  • No, really I am serious.  By following those who report on the Bilderberg group two major events were predicted, much like Nostradamus, well ahead of time.

    One, the deliberate economic destruction via the “Stimulus” package.

    Two, what we are going through now the destruction of health via the health “reform” package.
