“We all had better wake up.” – David Limbaugh.
David Limbaugh correctly has his finger on the pulse of the nation as he points out that Obamacare is “Obama unmasked.” Indeed, the Obamacare fiasco that is unfolding before us now, with millions of Americans losing health insurance, is only a symptom of a bigger problem. Yet, people blindly continue to support Obamacare. Why is that?
As Limbaugh points out, “he has the unqualified support of the entire liberal media apparatus, the Democratic Party in lock step, millions of people purchased with government money and/or indoctrinated in liberal universities, and the cudgels of racial shaming and white guilt….” Those who disagree may call Limbaugh a racist or partisan for his statement but to those of us who are aware of what is happening in the country, his statement represents an ugly truth present today in America.
President Ronald Reagan once said, “A government can't control the economy without controlling people. And they know when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose.” Look around, is the government using “force and coercion” to achieve its purpose of forcing people to enlist in Obamacare?
Aside from providing all Americans with a fantastic health insurance plan, Obamacare was supposed to boost America’s economy as well. Therefore, let us consider America’s economy today. The latest polls show that the October 2013 unemployment rate is stuck at 7.3%, a jump of .1% since September. Compare this to the lowest unemployment rate in the past 10 years, which occurred in October 2006 at a rate of 4.4%. Moreover, if we consider the overlooked Labor Force Participation Rate, the plight of young unemployed Americans in particular becomes even more dramatic. Yet, politicians want us to believe that the economy is gaining steam and unemployment is shrinking. Indeed, politicians are working hard to pass other comprehensive laws, much the same as Obamacare, to “help” America’s economy.
Limbaugh notes that, “Obamacare has always been nothing less than the linchpin in Obama’s bigger dream to fundamentally change America into a nation he could like instead of resent — a socialist utopia rather than the land of the free, of the brave and of equal opportunity.” As a legal immigrant to the United States from a country ruled by Socialism under the guise of Democracy, I can assure you, Limbaugh’s point is terrific. Having experienced socialized medicine, rationing of food, forced uniformity of an educational system, I am astounded to see how easily Americans are willing to give up their liberty and freedom to an out of control government.
Perhaps, the best part of Limbaugh’s article is in his conclusion where he asks Obama supporters, “Is your appetite for denial unbounded?” Without missing a beat, he then addresses the opposition, “Those on the right who insist on continuing to pull their punches instead of calling it like it is will also eventually have America’s blood on their hands.” Limbaugh is correct; the fight against an overreaching government is a fight for all Americans. Indeed, extremism on both sides of the political spectrum produces the same results: slavery. Reagan said, “Somewhere a perversion has taken place. Our natural, unalienable rights are now considered to be a dispensation of government, and freedom has never been so fragile, so close to slipping from our grasp as it is at this moment.” In 1964, Reagan fought the idea of socialized medicine for Americans. Today, we have socialized medicine in America through Obamacare. The question then is no longer how far removed we are from our founding principles, enslaved to an ideology, but how do we revert to a historically proven system that once made America great. It seems, “You and I have a rendezvous with destiny.”
