Obamacare: It’s Really About Power And Control
The point and purpose of Obamacare was never about insuring the uninsured.
Jeff Goldstein is dead solid perfect [per usual]:
…Its purpose was to continue the progressive agenda of nationalizing everything, with healthcare perhaps the most important plank in the foundation for a soft-socialist coup. Through ObamaCare — which will eventually they believe force either a single payer system or some sort of veneer of private enterprise fronting for the government as a primary controller of health care costs, etc. (the liberal fascist model) — the federal government has a very real control over your life and death. But that’s just a side perk. If you die, you die. Bumps in the road.
No, what they were after was the kind of power that comes with information, and between ObamaCare, the IRS, and the NSA, there isn’t a single thing the federal government doesn’t know about you, should they decide to go digging. And as we live in a post-Constitutional country, where the rule of law is now arbitrary and selectively enforced, this in turn creates all the conditions for a coercive police state, where dissent goes to die out of fear of reprisal by the State and its functionaries.
To obtain the kind of unlimited Power the Left In America desires, they must gain control over the citizens of The United States and they are very near to reaching that goal for the reasons Jeff lists. They will soon have enough information on enough Americans so that they can blackmail us into doing what they want out of fear.
As I wrote in the recent Dispatch, No One Is Safe Anymore:
While it appears that The Rule Of Law still exists in America, it is, in fact, dead…. It is an empty promise, a false facade that hides the malevolent force of Despotism, and can be thrown aside in one swift and easy movement.
To achieve Power And Control, one must be able to efficiently use Fear on a grand scale.
Soon — mark me — they will.
I know not what course others may take, but as for me:
I will not be a slave; I will either Live Free Or Die
