We are continuing to lose our privacy, here in America, at an ever-increasing speed. There is hardly a place in America one can go, these days, without being seen by someone’s security cameras. I recently stood in a parking lot of one of the Big Box stores and counted 22 cameras zeroed in on the parking area, and entrances, and exits, to the store. And that was just on the OUTSIDE, at the front, of the store!
And those red-light cameras? Don’t get me started on that!!!
If you think Big Brother’s snooping is bad now… just wait… it will get worse, a LOT worse, if we allow it.
If you think it’s bad now, wait until we have national health insurance. (You know… Hillary Care????) Our every move will be monitored, and we will be directed, by the government, in every facet of our lives.
Weigh too much? Lose weight… or the government won’t pay for your medical bills.
Drive too fast? Slow down or the government won’t pay for your medical bills if you’re in an accident.
Smoke? The government won’t pay for your medical bills, period.
Have more than (two) kids? Your medical bills will not be paid if you exceed the allowable limit on babies.
Pregnant with a third child and the government insists that you have an abortion, but you really want this third child? Well, either have an abortion, or that third child will have no medical coverage and the cost of the pregnancy, and delivery, will not be covered, either.
Didn’t finish High School? Your medical bills will not be covered if you do not get a High School Diploma.
Take the wrong courses in college? Well, if you didn’t check before you signed up for a course, and you signed-up for a course the government thinks is uncalled for, or that you do not need for your chosen occupation… then your medical bills will not be picked up by the National Healthcare.
Own a gun? Why, everyone knows there is an epidemic of deaths due to handguns in America. So it is a health issue. National Healthcare will not pay for your medical bills until you turn in your guns to the government!
Choose the wrong career, and you are on your own! No medical help from the government.
Get the picture? Almost total control. And you, and I, will have given that power to the government! (or your employer) After a while, there won’t be much difference, anyway.
So, next time you hear someone calling for National Healthcare, remind them of all the freedom they will give up for that cradle to the grave care.
The founders of this country wanted us to live free. Healthy, if we can manage it, but free, in any event. Today, it seems, we are prepared to give our freedom up for a form of modern day Marxism... "Socialized Medicine".
To paraphrase Shakespeare, “Socialized Medicine by any other name, would still stink!”
