As a country we have faced many threats in our history. First from British rule, then our own civil war, World War I & II, Korea, Vietnam, Cuba, The Soviet Empire, Iraq, Iran. Afgahistan and countless others. At each conflict we have risen to defend the vision and gift our founding fathers bestowed upon us. Anything worth having must always be defended for it will always be under attack.
I have always thought if you want to destroy something, it is best done from the inside out. I have seen this happen in the Church, corporate America and I see it happening in our own government right now. When we were attacked on September 11th it was done from the inside. By people who lived here, blended in, were accepted into our country and allowed to use freedom against us.
Today I see people in position of great power with goals and ideas that will do nothing less than destroy what we as American should be willing to die for. They gloss over dangerous ideology with catchy words that under the surface have little or no meaning. "Public Option" "Consumer Option" "Hope" :Change" it's sounds good, but what the hell does it mean?
Don't write this off thinking it's above your head and it doesn't matter to you. Yes YOU. If you are reading this it WILL AFFECT YOUR LIFE. Someday you will need a doctor or medicine or your loved one will and at that point you might start to care. At that point it might be too late!
If you have never cared much about government or what they do, now would be a great time to take up this one issue. We DO NOT have a health care problem in this country. We have some of the finest health care in the world. Doctors come here from all over to learn. Why? Because we are innovative, we never stop with research and developing new ways to treat and heal patients. All that could come to a screeching halt.
The problem we do have is AN INSURANCE PROBLEM. That's what needs to be fixed. You pay too much for your health care insurance or you don't have any because it's too expensive. They doctor pays too much for his practice insurance because he is afraid you might sue him if you're not happy at the end of the day. Billions of dollars are being passed around and things are getting worse.
We need our leaders to fix the insurance system, not the healthcare system. It's because of their actions (or lack of it) the problem even exsists. Tort reform is overdue. Allow insurance companies to compete in any state. Let the American people deduct the cost of insurance and treatment through taxes.
We can fix this if the government is willing to get out of the way, but they are not. This is exactly what they wanted. They created the crisis. The real problem is this is a grab for power. Uncle Sam is about to own you. They will control your bank, your health, what kind of car you drive, how much you are paid for a job if you have one and this is just the beginning.
If you sleep through this you will not like what's left of America when you awake. Please pay attention, call your representatives, email. write a letter, do something to stop the dismantling of America.
