What does it really mean? I mean the philosophy is fucked, that is a fact.
A governing body that makes decisions based on how much power it can gain and how much money it can can avoid spending will essentially be in control of our lives and our bodies.
You want to drink raw milk? No, that's up to us now. Vaccinations? Well, we're in charge so that's up to us now, too and you know how we feel about that. Oh, and we do things about twenty years behind the times so, high fat? That's bad. Salt? That's bad too or it was fifteen years ago. Corn syrup is awesome though, so plenty of that if you're to be an upstanding citizen. Birth at home? Nope, not allowed.
Also, make sure you and your kids load up on pharmaceuticals like all the good people of the world who wash their cars on Sundays do. What's that? You don't want your children on drugs? Sounds like child abuse. We'll have to declare you unfit.
The possibilities are endless.
It's like accepting a gift of money from your mother-in- law. Oh you thought that was free?
No, the price is your kids wear the clothes she likes and do the activities she likes. Don't don't like beauty pageants? Too bad, mom loves them and if you want the goods, you'll make peace with having your daughter twirl on the runway while mom,"Ooohs and Aawws".
So yes, the philosophy is fucked.
How much of this health care plan that is philosophically and legally feasible is actually politically feasible and how much and how far can they push? Well, we shall see.
This will affect everyone.
NDAA however, is the power to kill.
NDAA is the power to imprison.
NDAA is the power to send anyone to a foreign land to place a check mark for all of the above.
It does not affect everyone. It only affects those who are politically expedient for it to affect.
That is me
and possibly, if you are an active libertarian; that is you.
Control over health care is important in that it really truly does affect everyone . Not just those at the top of Martin Niemöller's first they came for . . . list .
So maybe, in that way, it really truly is that important.
Maybe this is the today's tea tax and or stamp act. Those not yet jaded and so full of enthusiasm had no idea the road ahead in this movement (thank God). Maybe, combined with the hard cold reality that Ron Paul could not get a fair shake, and make no mistake, to the young people who were new to the idea of freedom, the fact that the laws do not apply to those in charge was a cold hard and surprising slap, it really is important.
Here's to hoping that now that it is evident, we are not getting what we wanted for Christmas, that we received a deserved C+ on our response to NDAA, that maybe this health care shove from Skut Farkus and his yellow eyes, so help me, yellow eyes, was just one shot too many.
