My views on: Obamacare
I want to make very clear to potential voters what my views are about Obamacare.
If elected to Congress on November 6th, I will do everything within my power to destroy Obamacare, because the concept is both illegal and immoral.
I believe in the sanctity of the Tenth Amendment, which limits Federal power over the States. I believe the government routinely violates our Constitution and our rights by attempting to do far too much in order to placate restless citizens.
Giving the Government the right to seize the entire health care industry and to dictate terms and prices and procedures is an act of lunacy that was only made possible through Democratic bribery and extortion. Senators Ben Nelson of Nebraska and Mary Landrieu of Louisiana accepted bribes offered by fellow legislators to change their votes and pass the Obamacare bill. I mentioned in my debate with Adam Schiff that some of these people need to see the inside of a jail cell if our government is ever going to function correctly.
If Obamacare was so wonderful, why did 800 different organizations that support Obama need a waiver from it? Allowing the law to apply to some, but not to others is a violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, which says that laws must equally apply to all citizens. Therefore, Obamacare violates our Constitution and is illegal.
Obama, under the guise of "providing health services" recently dictated to Catholic hospitals that they had to provide abortion drugs to patients. This violates several tenets of the Catholic faith and is something they can never do. Eventually Obama backed off of this demand when several Catholic institutions, including the University of Notre Dame, started suing his Administration. At the same time Obama was trampling on the religious freedom of Catholics, he was completely exempting his precious buddies the Muslims from participating in Obamacare, because health insurance is a form of gambling, which is not allowed in Islam. Therefore, because Obama will use force against one religious faith while completely exempting another faith from his wrath, Obamacare is immoral.
I will finish my argument today with one very specific statement concerning my opposition to Obamacare:
Giving the Government more control over your health care is giving the Government more control over you.
Think about that.
I often criticize Obama by calling him "Caesar" or "Pharaoh" because of his fondness for breaking our laws and violating our Constitution and its protections from tyranny.
But as bad as Obama is... what if someone comes along that is worse?
What if 20 years from now we have a leader who makes Obama look like a meter maid?
What if this new, crazed leader issues a decree that all citizens who donated financially to the political opposition in the past will now no longer receive medical treatment?
This is why you don't leave the health care industry under government control. You cannot afford to mistakenly assume that all future leaders will be kind-natured angels.
History has proven repeatedly that this is not the case.
