Health care is a weapon. It’s what happens when the government collectivizes us all under their universal health care system. Weaponized health care is the impending threat of socialized medicine.
Universal health care, single payer system, national health care, call it what you will, these titles are window dressing for socialized medicine where by the bureaucracy will deliver every individuals health care via another failed government program.
The governments aim is to collectivize our healthcare records unto a government data base where by some bureaucrat will ration the amount of care any one individual may receive. When you hear a politician say they are going to cut health care costs this is how they propose to do it; by denying us access to services: “Go home, take two aspirins, and call me in eight months.” The government’s idea of controlling cost is freezing prices, halting technology, and rationing access to care!
We have been told this is the only way to insure the 47 million Americans that currently go without health care. Truth is, if you take the illegal aliens out of that equation, and the people who are between jobs and are temporarily uninsured, and consider those who can afford health care but chose not to purchase it, we are talking about 10% of the population that don’t have health care. We already have a government program for the uninsured in America it’s called Medicaid!
Medicare, Medicaid, VA, Public Health Services, have all been abysmal failures. They are shining examples of what happens when government meddles in the health care system. Ever wonder why health care is so expensive? It is because the government has tampered with it for the past fifty years. Remember every time government creates a new federal program they create new special interest groups and lobbyists, who curry favor for a share of yet another government contract. Universal health care will be a lucrative government contract; in this case it will be for General Electric, which so generously contributed to the Obama campaign. Who knows, those bureaucrats that will be rationing your health care, will most likely be members of ACORN, after all, Obama has given them billions of tax payer bailout dollars, and a key roll in the 2010 census survey.
Health care should be governed by the intrinsic forces of the free market; free market capitalism is the cure for health care, the cure for fifty years of botched government tampering. Only the free market, unfettered by government intervention will enhance competition and grow the health care industry. But no, this government prefers to destroy health care for 90% of Americans who are happy with their health care providers. Imagine everyone keyed into socialized medicine, everyone treated equally under the watchful eyes of government overseers, if this sounds egalitarian, if this sounds socialistic, it’s because it’s straight out of the Marxist handbook.
The most insidious aspect here is once the government has your entire health history in its data base, once the government has collected its intrusive data from the 2010 census survey, once the government knows your employment history, religious preferences and political affiliations, they will know as much, if not more personal data about you than the most intimate members of your family. Once this happens the government will wield health care as a weapon to advance their political agenda of turning the Unites States into a Socialist Democracy.
They will punish those who do not conform to their socialist ideology; they will crush the individual who speaks out against them; they will be in a position of power to deny life saving treatment, surgery, and medications to those who find themselves on the wrong side of the political fence. Combined with intimidation and fear this government will wield health care like a club to silence their opposition. With this omnipotent power the government will be in a position to deny health care to large masses of the population. H1N1 flu, AIDS, cancer, heart disease, may all become the tools of genocide. If your sixty-three years old, retired, drawing Social Security — well you have my condolences. Socialized medicine is a tool of social engineering; it is crowd control hiding behind a veil of altruism.
