President Obama is either a glib liar or the most uninformed president in the history of this and any other nation.
In the nation that led the world into the cyber century, a country that has put men on the moon and controls technology that can spy on every phone and computer on the planet, it is unthinkable that, in three years, an administration armed with all the resources of the most powerful office on earth can't come up with something better than a computer system that is only capable of enrolling a grand total of six people on its very first day and then crashes like a pinball machine that's been tilted.
And, the sad fact is that the rollout debacle is probably the least painful part of the whole, ill conceived, poorly executed, mysterious piece of socialistic tripe, because the devil (and about a million demons) are in the details.
Nobody seems to know what this bill contains well enough to explain it to the public and every time you think you've got something about it nailed down, something else pops up that changes the meaning of what minutiae you have been able to glean.
We have now been informed by the Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sibelius, that the "navigators" who will be hired to guide the great unwashed through the maze could be convicted felons and they will be in possession of your most personal and sensitive facts.
The opinion of America's cyber community seems to be that the security of the system is substandard and vulnerable and exposes exploitable information to any hacker worth their salt with a larcenous streak and a capable computer.
The IRS has already proven itself to be as crooked as a barrel full of fish hooks and they are still the agency charged with enforcing the ACA, conjuring up visions of a private Gestapo, with unlimited power to harass and penalize.
Folks, if Obamacare is fully implemented, with its battalions of new bureaucracies, enforcers, and non-medical personnel disbursing and denying health care to whoever they choose, with no recourse or alternative choices, they will be holding the collective testicles of America in their hands and can squeeze as often and as hard as they want.
Obamacare is not about health care at all, it's about nothing but the centralizing of control, an unprecedented power grab that will destroy the finest health care system in the world, further wreck the economy and give the federal government power that no governing body should hold over a free society.
In communist Russia, the politburo and their cohorts enjoyed special rights that ordinary citizens could only dream of. While the hoi polloi stood in line for hours at poorly stocked stores with inferior products, the elite shopped in special upscale stores and lived in the best apartments, leaving the masses to live in poorly heated, shoddily built ugly concrete boxes of tiny apartments, with an entire family crowded into two or three rooms.
The politburo even had their own private traffic lane in Moscow, a lane that was denied public use so the elite could flit around town unimpeded.
You say, "Well, that was the Soviet Union, a dictatorship. What do you expect"?
Ladies and gentlemen I submit to you that there is no difference between the liberties the politburo took in Russia and the liberties President Obama and Congress are taking in the United States of America.
Are Congress and their families, their assistants and the rest of the gigantic government apparatus going to be forced to accept the same insurance choices you are presented with?
Has the president passed out exemptions to cronies and politically expedient groups?
Will the administrators of Obamacare not be in possession or every iota of information about your public and private life, up to and including your political leanings and will the party you support influence their decisions?
Did the president not lie about keeping your own doctor and your own insurance?
What else is he lying about?
Who will navigate the 10,535 pages of new regulations and decipher them for a confused public?
Can you not break the law without intending to or even realizing it?
America, if Obama and the Democrats are allowed to pull this off, to fully implement this travesty and this stealing of constitutionally guaranteed freedoms, don't think it will stop there - because what they want is complete control.
And as long as I've got one breath left, I will fight this "hope" and "change" with everything at my disposal.
What about you?
What do you think?
God Bless America
