ELDER PATRIOT – The Democrats’ entrenched obstructionism in the face of the collapsing national healthcare experiment is astounding. When the system collapses the people they claim to care most about will suffer the most.
Whenever I engage a fellow countryman on the economic costs that accompany nationalized healthcare they claim that healthcare is a right.
I’ve long since given up trying to convince them that every person’s rights end when they ask other people to pay for them. But there is a question that stops them in their tracks. It follows after they dutifully, if ignorantly recite the leftist mantra that we are the richest nation on earth so we can afford it.
Dems and petulant spoiled brats have this in common: they give no thought to how much of someone else’s money they can spend. Currently, Congressional Dems have stormed off to their rooms and slammed the door to sulk leaving their constituents without representation in the federal government. This resembles parents continuing to enjoy dinner after their spoiled brat stormed off hungry.
My experience is that when I confront their rank and file with the following question their eyes glaze over and a homina homina moment ensues.
“If we are the richest nation on earth why have we been sinking $1.25 trillion deeper into debt every year since the passage of Obamacare? We are by far the most debt-ridden country on earth so we cannot be the richest as well. Do not mistake being the most productive with being the richest. So if we give you healthcare what are you willing to give up?”
What follows is a blank stare and mumbling as they search for some way to counter that argument.
Democrats’ pronounced socialism has seduced their followers. They are leading America into the same abyss that Venezuela just plunged into and the most striking takeaway is that those most vulnerable in the event of a collapse are the same people who support the Dems’ lurch towards socialism.
“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”
― Abraham Lincoln
The most dangerous threat to concept of America is not the Russians. It is the Democrats.
