The Horse Sense Blog compares the nonsense in today's news with good ol' fashioned horse sense

“…I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.… It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.” - Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775

"The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell

Obamacare Is About Slavery vs. Freedom, Nothing Else

Here's the Nonsense:  Obamacare is a bit of a mess right now, but thanks to President Obama giving another year to keep your health plan, it will all work out and we'll be better off for it.

Here's the Horse Sense:  This is about slavery, nothing less.  President Obama is not interested in what's best for Americans.  He's once again showing he's more interested in power and control.

While Washington, DC is engaged in a back and forth about Obamacare, with the Progressives trying to save it and the Conservatives trying to abolish it (and everyone else, both establishment Republicans and Democrats up for reelection in 2014, trying to escape the damage it may cause them because of the disastrous rollout of the program), they are all missing the real issue.  In fact, even most of the conservative media have missed it.  The real issue is about slavery versus freedom.

I know that using the word "slavery" throws implications into the discussion that many would feel are radical, unfair, and even extreme.  But those who feel that way are the extreme ones.  They are refusing to accept the true implications of what we are facing.  To be a slave means that you have no choice, whether you like it or not, because you are subject to an alien will.  As a slave you have no freedom, autonomy, or rights in your decision making.  Throughout history societies have seen slaves as property, not as persons.  Slaves are the possession of their owner and must obey the will of that owner without hesitation or argument or suffer harsh consequences.

Americans are being forced into submission and to accept Obamacare whether they like it or not.  When asked, the vast majority of Americans have been against it, but that didn't stop our elected officials (the ruling class, as they see themselves) from forcing this down the throats of all of us.  We have been dragged into slavery on this issue (and will be on many others if this is allowed to continue).  We have no choice.  We must submit to it or suffer harsh consequences.  This is the plan of the Progressives that we are seeing unfold.  Healthcare is just one of the first areas in which they are forcing their will upon us.

People have focused on whether President Obama lied about keeping your health plan if you like it.  While it is quite clear he did lie (a couple dozen video recordings of him making the promise should be enough proof for anyone), what is being debated by the most foolish and gullible among us is whether he intended to do so.  The sheer number of times he made that claim should tell us that it was intentional.  

But if that's not enough proof, now we have reporting that Senator Rand Paul dropped a bombshell at a luncheon in Charleston, SC on November 11th saying,  “I’m still learning about it. It’s 20,000 pages of regulations. The Bill was 2,000 pages and I didn’t realize this until this week, the whole idea of you losing or getting your insurance cancelled wasn’t in the original Obamacare. It was a regulation WRITTEN BY PRESIDENT OBAMA, three months later.So we had a vote, this is before I got up there [before being elected to the Senate]. The Republicans had a vote to try to cancel that regulation so you COULDN’T BE CANCELLED, to grandfather everybody in. You know what the vote was? Straight party line. EVERY DEMOCRAT VOTED TO KEEP THE RULE THAT CANCELS YOUR INSURANCE.”

Did you get that?  Not only did the president add a regulation to cancel insurance plans, but every Democrat voted for it!  Their claim now that they are trying to help Americans by extending how long you'll get to keep your health plan is, as I wrote in a previous post, just so they can keep their jobs in the 2014 midterm elections that are right around the corner.

This whole Obamacare mess has nothing to do with your healthcare, but has everything to do with controlling you.  There is no desire to make things better for Americans, just a desire to control the public so they can maintain power.  Add to this another bombshell this past week when it was reported by that Rep. Louie Gohmert, in an interview on Janet Mefferd's nationally syndicated radio show, talked about the Obamacare law and said it includes "the president's own commissioned and non-commissioned officer corps" that could be used to impose some form of medical martial law.  The report goes on to say,  "Combined with the continued DHS arms build up along with the federal agency’s hiring of armed guards with 'Top Secret' security clearances, Gohmert characterized the issue as 'very disturbing'”.

In an excellent commentary on this entire mess, Daniel Greenfield wrote for Frontpage Magazine a perfect question:  "If you don't trust Americans to choose their own health insurance, why would you trust them enough to tell them the truth that they won't be able to choose their own health insurance?"  He then goes on to write about how Progressives see Americans as "little more than apes who can sorta be trusted to drive cars, but not to pick them out" and that because of that view, Progressives believe that us citizens aren't smart enough to be told the truth.

This is an excellent way to describe exactly what's going on with Obamacare and all the other things that the Progressives are forcing down our throats.  Progressives see us as much lower than them.  They see themselves as the elite and believe they know what's best for us.  Greenfield rightly says, "That’s what this conflict is really about. That’s what the clash between Socialism and the Free Market, between slavery and freedom is about."

He puts it in a very simple and straight forward manner, but that's what may be needed to wake people up.  Progressives' contempt for truth and factual accuracy is limitless.  They see truth as only important if it is aligned with their ideological goal.  And for that reason we should all be very worried.  

The future will be controlled by them and their lies unless Americans take a stand and end this madness.  This can only happen if each one of us is actively working to fight back and take our country back.  It's about giving up our personal time and investing ourselves in the future for our children and grandchildren.  Next time you think of relaxing on the weekend, ask yourself how you'll feel years from now when your descendants are living under a regime that has taken away their rights, their freedoms, and their futures.  Is that relaxing day off worth leaving a future of slavery to our children and grandchildren?

You can brush it off.  You can talk all you want about needing a weekend off after a hard week, but when you're fighting for your life you don't get time off.  When my father would tell me of the service of his generation in World War II there was never talk of having the weekends off.  They knew that if they were to stop Hitler's Germany and their allies (the Axis Powers), they could not rest.  Not until the war was over and the world was safe from their enemy could they let up for a minute.  There's a great video on YouTube that shows how, for quite some time during that war, it seemed as though the Axis powers would never be able to be overtaken and beaten by the Allied Powers (America, Great Britain and their allies).  Click here to see it.  It took monumental hard work and non-stop effort to overcome that enemy.

That's what the fight against Progressive socialism is like.  It will be a long hard fight with limited success in the beginning, but it must be fought and it must be won.  Anything less will leave our children and grandchildren living under oppression beyond what any American has ever thought possible for our nation.  It will be slavery instead of freedom.
