The Healthcare overhaul debate has become a divisive distraction for all of us and I am not one here to tell you whether the general idea of universal medical coverage and to what extent to provide it is the right or wrong way to address our individual or national medical needs, but I do want to point out some unexpected consequences of such policies.
Recently the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of President Obama's Healthcare Reform Plan (case law) and this will no doubt play a big part in the November presidential election. Whichever way you decide to vote, make sure that who you vote for is not the one that your party chose, the lesser of two evils or the best representing you in healthcare, or abortion, or the one that tells you he will stop the war, or worse, that he will increase our overseas endeavors and will take us in a "democratic" crusade of more violence, death and destruction --
Vote For The One That Will Protect You And Your Family's Freedom To Live Peacefully, To Allow You To Be Prosperous And Which Will Not Interfere With Your Personal Choices, Of Any Sort -- We Have A Right To Do As We Wish As Long As We Don't Harm Others!
The Supreme Court's decision and reasoning (findings of fact and conclusions of law) in the Healthcare ruling goes way beyond contraceptive pills, no exclusions from policies or whether it is another socialist state run program, it goes to the core of our personal liberties.
Another thing to remember is that Obama's initial push for universal healthcare goes back to the days of the 2008 financial collapse. The primary purpose for promoting universal heathcare was supposed to be to lower the cost of insurance and thus help the economy and the average household.
Now it is universally accepted that Obama's Healthcare program is going to cost each of us and the economy (via government subsidies) even more and to make matters worse, each day all orthodox medical procedures are getting more expensive and insurance plans have higher costs, bigger deductibles and less coverage (once 100% total coverage of all procedures are now at about 70% or below). Big pharma, insurance companies and the orthodox medical establishment are getting us whichever way they can).
If we go to not only what it says, but to the essence of this Supreme Court decision and how it will affect all future rulings (remember, law is one of precedent and looks to prior case law), this is what it really means and how it can and most likely will be applied in future cases against us:
THE GOVERNMENT CAN MAKE YOU DO WHATEVER IT WANTS, CAN REGULATE ANY HUMAN BEHAVIOR AND IF YOU DON'T WANT TO DO WHAT IS REQUIRED, IT CAN TAX YOU FOR NOT DOING SO; AND IF YOU DON'T PAY THE TAX, WELL, GUESS WHAT THEY CAN DO?
ANOTHER SUPREME COURT CASE ALSO SAID:"THE POWER TO TAX IS THE POWER TO DESTROY." (case law)
I saw a video today by Judge Andrew Napolitano that explains how we can reach such conclusion and I am including it below. Now, here is a caveat: Judge Napolitano appears in the Fox Network and just like views of Democrats vs. Republicans, some people love Fox and some people hate them. Don't let that make you loose focus of the relevance of the information presented, be objective. Remember, even a drunk's advise that drinking in excess is bad for you is still good advise, regardless of his misfortune.
