SOCIALIZED MEDICINE I
The world’s longest reigning communist dictator, Cuba’s Fidel Castro, has roundly applauded President Obama for passage of healthcare legislation.
“We consider health reform to have been an important battle and a success of his (Obama’s) government,” Castro wrote. He went on to say that Obama should now lead the United States in enacting climate change and immigration reform measures.
It is interesting that this notorious communist dictator would be pleased with the passage of a particular piece of American legislation. It is, however, no surprise to students of history because the man most responsible for modern communism, besides Karl Marx, Russian tyrant Vladimir Lenin, has been widely quoted as saying, “Socialized medicine is the keystone in the arch of a socialist state.”
To the average American, These statements of Castro and Lenin might seem incredulous. They are especially hard to believe in light of statements by many in our country who promoted health care. For example, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer stated that the healthcare reform bill will give patients…”greater control over their healthcare.”
Wise observers know that such statements are show business coming from Washington’s elitists who will say or do anything to cloak reality and further their socialist agenda. In the name of humanitarianism, they are creating the organization for the implementation of tyranny.
The sad truth is that totalitarian states in modern times have always turned to government control of healthcare as the launching pad for entry into socialist/communist rule. Lenin did it; so did Hitler. History has proven over and over again that socialized medicine is one of the routes leading to creating government control of the people.
It is not only the insurance industry that comes under the control of a socialized medicine program. It is the clinics, the hospitals, the doctors, the nurses, the aides---all the medical personnel. More importantly, it includes all the patients.
For many years, there has been growing pressure to use government to eliminate or stifle alternative medical care, from attacks on Chiropractors to campaigns against alternative and holistic medicine. In addition, we have seen major attempts to establish government control over food supplements and vitamins. The latest attempt has been Senator John McCain’s bill regarding the vitamin and food supplement industries. It is certain that because of the new healthcare law, there will be further attempts to stifle or eliminate alternative medicine and food supplements.
While telling us that healthcare is liberation, it is really the exact opposite. If an American no longer has the freedom to choose what doctor he sees, where he sees him or her, and whatever treatment is prescribed—if allowed treatment at all!---then the question should be asked is “Where is the freedom in that?”
Only in a totally free society does a person have the freedom to choose a doctor, a treatment, and where and when the treatment will take place. A government healthcare system, without doubt, will ultimately take all those freedoms away.
FIGHT FOR FREEDOM. REPEAL THIS EVIL BILL. TALK TO YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS, YOUR FRIENDS, YOUR NEIGHBORS, YOUR CO-WORKERS, STRANGERS. TELL THEM THE DEMOCRATS RAMMED THIS EVIL BILL DOWN THE THROATS OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. TO REPEAL THIS BILL WE MUST KICK ALL THE DEMOCRATS OUT. EVERY ONE MUST VOTE REPUBLICAN IN NOVEMBER 2010.
