What does Sarah Palin have to do with health care for Americans?

The common Democratic argument for the U.S. government taking over the health care industry is “there are 47 million Americans who are inadequately insured.” Since there are 307 million Americans, this is equivalent to saying 15% of Americans don’t have the level of health insurance which liberals think they should have.

Ignoring the fact that for the first 200 years in America 99% of U.S. citizens did not have any health insurance whatsoever and nonetheless lived long, healthy lives … ignoring that fact, let’s look at those who are so-called “inadequately insured.”

The ugly truth that Democrats are not really interested in people’s health is evidenced by the fact that under their legislation health care will be rationed by bureaucratic health czars. What Democrats are really interested in is building huge government bureaucracies so they can appoint their friends and “foot soldiers” to government jobs and thereby maintain iron-fisted Chicago-style political control. Knowing the real motives of Democrats, we can assume they have found ways to blow up a little toy balloon into a very large appearing blimp labeled “47 million.” The correct number of “inadequately insured” by their definition is probably more like 17 million, but allowing for error let's start with 27 million, not 47 million.

But it is liberal do-gooders who define “inadequate.” Hordes of part-time workers have insurance which gives them at least some relief for any major health problems they create for themselves. So the real number, those who are totally uninsured by some insurance plan, is probably closer to 10 million. There may be 10 million Americans today, 3% of Americans ... not 47 million, 15% of Americans ... who are living without insurance in the way 99% of Americans always lived in the past.

Out of those 10 million, there are probably 3 million who have adequate family ties, family members who would help pay for medical bills, etc., the way it’s always been done for centuries. So there are maybe 7 million, not 47 million, who are not sure where they would turn if they created for themselves serious health problems.

It is often argued that these 7 million “cannot afford” health insurance. But this is not true. We’ve looked at the poorest neighborhoods and we see that everyone has a car and a television set, many have pets, most have cell phones, there is plenty of beer, and lots of music floating from ghetto blasters and neighborhood bars, as well as many other “goodies” evident. There is nothing poor about so-called “poor people.” They have simply made choices to buy other things besides health insurance.

Seven million free individuals have freely made the choice that they don’t want health insurance. Maybe 6 million of those wouldn’t mind having health insurance, but they don’t want it enough to give up their cars or their television sets or their cell phones or the other “goodies” which they would rather have. Maybe another million either don’t like doctors, refuse to go to a doctor, and therefore feel they don’t need health insurance; or don’t like the concept of insurance and wouldn’t buy insurance if their life depended on it.

To the liberal do-gooders of the Democratic Party, freedom of choice is not to be allowed (except in the case of killing babies). In the liberal mind, health insurance must be made mandatory. Obviously mandatory health insurance is dictatorship, but Democrats don’t mind dictatorship as long as they are the dictators … which is precisely their plan.

Republicans are afraid to call a spade a spade. God forbid they take a stand against mandatory health insurance … for fear they would appear insensitive to all those poor people who have chosen cars, televisions and ghetto blasters.

Thank God for Sarah Palin! She has freed herself from limiting political protocol. She can now go out among everyday Americans and call a spade a spade. She can now remind people of their truest deepest heart’s desire, which is not some Democratic-forced health insurance ... but the freedom to make one’s own decisions, including the decision to live or die, take care of one's health or not, as one decides for oneself.

Sarah Palin can speak out and remind Americans of the real truth ... that the only meaningful health insurance is freedom from government dictatorship.

"God's laws will keep your minds at peace, because peace IS His Will, and His laws are established to uphold it. His are the laws of freedom, but yours are the laws of bondage. Since freedom and bondage are irreconcilable, their laws CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD TOGETHER. The laws of God work only for your good, and there ARE no other laws beside His. Everything else is merely lawLESS, and therefore chaotic." -Jesus Christ in A Course in Miracles
