It's God's will

Govt. takeover of Healthcare is God’s will! To oppose it is to oppose morality itself. So sayeth Obama, “We are God’s partners in matters of life and death.”

Yeah verily, all those who oppose God’s will are immoral, liars, racists, Nazi’s, evil-mongers, and terrorists. Oh, and also un-American. …You could almost laugh off this kind of extreme slander if it didn’t belie an even more insidious agenda.

There are so many things wrong with this Healthcare takeover that it is hard to overstate the danger. Putting the Federal government in charge of our healthcare? What could go wrong?

The End Goal

Democrats (the left) want a totally government controlled heathcare system from beginning to end. They can't deny it because they've been saying it on record for years. It's in print and speeches by elected and unelected Democrats, advocates, activists, community organizers, party officials, billionaire astro-turf funders, bloggers, and the like, all demanding and extolling a single payer government takeover of healthcare.

The Deception

The plan, i.e. Healthcare reform, is meant to eliminate private insurance over time and end up with a government Healthcare monopoly. Just watch and hear it in their own words: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZ-6ebku3_E

Thus Obama's reform is predicated entirely on lies and deception. The problem that Democrats have is that they know they don't have the support to get there in one mighty step-- they dare not have an honest debate about single payer or national Healthcare. They would lose.

Instead we have Obama lying everyday on national television about how no one wants to take away your current coverage. On the one hand this is a crisis of epic proportions that requires swift and radical action but on the other hand you can keep everything exactly they way it is (if you're happy with your current coverage, and until we decide to take it away). Shouldn't people be leaping to get government coverage?

One Hundred Percent True Lies

Healthcare will fund abortions. (Period.)

Death Panels, a.k.a. mandatory end-of-life counseling for the aged and infirm. This is merely a part of healthcare rationing. In other words, 'cost cutting'. Most of the cost of healthcare comes at the end-of-life. Government provided healthcare will encourage that you do your part and make sure you do not unduly burden the system. It's called sacrifice. Apparently we need more of it. We're all in this together! Your right to die.

Obama promised that his plan will 'cut costs'. (Goodbye grandma.)

Obama bankrupting America, there's some change for ya.

The High Cost of God's Plan

This Healthcare takeover scheme will bankrupt America.

Does the cost really matter? I mean with 9 trillion dollars in deficit spending (and rising) already what's another open ended gaping money hole going to matter? I mean really. It's just money. We can print more.

Unconstitutional

Lastly, the Federal government has no power to enact socialized medicine. But I'm sure that they will try anyway.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. -- C.S. Lewis
