Whether Obamacare Passes, How to Prepare Yourself
Most of you who are reading this post have read many of the stories about what is going on behind the curtains with the Democrats effort to force Obamacare on the American people. Whether in an e-mail or whether a visit to a certain website, fears are gripping the American people as to what lies ahead. Many of us see a government takeover of medicine as the liberals’ crown jewel for socialism on America.
There’s little reason for me to recap the talking points on reconciliation, cost, abortion, the “Slaughterhouse Solution”, etc. You’ve read them in the e-mails you get and the websites you visit. I prefer not repeat what everyone else is saying, regardless of their position on Obamacare.
What I want to do here is share some common sense points that may be overlooked as patriotic Americans do everything they can to thwart this fascism that the bulk of us steadfastly reject. However, should Obamacare clear Congress (legitimately or illegitimately) and go for the White House’s signature, there are still many things to consider and act upon.
Since the House is considering approving the Senate bill as is (there are debates as to whether the so called “Louisiana Purchase” and “Cornhusker Kickback”, among other acts of Congressional bribery, will be left in the bill), the consideration here is to hopefully keep the bill from passage, or better yet, from even going to a vote. With that in mind, here is what I suggest we all do prior to the passage of Obamacare.
First of all, TRUST GOD! Without faith in God and His Son Jesus Christ, every other point is moot. I don’t know how anyone can make it in life without Jesus Christ, much less so during these extremely perilous days. If you don’t have the Lord as Savior of your life and if you’re not 100% sure you would go to Heaven when your time is up on earth, please contact me at email@example.com. The problem with Obamacare is a spiritual problem more than anything else. It is putting government as Lord of your life instead of Jesus Christ.
Secondly, remain calm (though resolute), no matter what happens with this legislation. Yeah, I know, far easier said than done. But if we’re going to defeat this monster and return America to God and its patriotic roots, we must do so. It will be that much harder to mobilize and win if we are demoralized because that means our emotions will get the best of us. Emotion drives liberalism because liberalism is based on feelings. Conservatism and constitutionalism are based on objective and analytical thinking. We must not lose sight of that if the worst occurs.
Keep in mind that should Obamacare be signed into law by the Resident (P intentionally omitted), there will be plenty of legal challenges in the courts. Many states will be leading the way. Voters in Arizona will consider in November ratifying its legislature’s decision to ban government run health care on the ballot. Both of Virginia’s legislative chambers have passed a measure blocking forced health insurance coverage (and with heavy Democrat input). Idaho, Utah and Oklahoma have also passed measures restricting federal intervention into health care issues. Other states have bills in the works. The 10th Amendment Center has documented much of these details and much more on its website.
Thirdly, know that by and large, polls strongly oppose a government takeover of medicine. See here for details.
Of course, polls, no matter how damning, don’t matter to the liberals in Congress who want to foist socialized medicine upon the American people, neither do states who want to take up such measures to block enforcement. But it does give small comfort to know that we are in the right and by a fairly solid margin. It’s worse when we’re in the minority on any issue. We know we are in the right. That is the bottom line.
But if you need more encouragement in this regard, just plug “health care Obama” in Google’s search engine and hit “return”. Read the articles, whether they be from a slanted “mainstream” source or one without spin or bias. Look for the ones with forums for comment. Read the comments. They tell the story. With perhaps a few exceptions (New York Times, PMSNBC, CBS, ABC), the opposition is quite strong and in some cases massive, whether the sites lean conservative or progressive/liberal. However, you will even find some fairly sizable opposition on sites like ABC, depending on the article. People are angry and it shows. You don’t have to look far at all to see it in the comments. It may be depressing to think that Congress wants to go ahead and thumb its nose at the American people but the people are in solid opposition and many of the posters on these sites make no bones about how they feel about Obama and Congress.
It isn’t terribly difficult (in this writer’s view, based on what he has seen) to read of posters claiming they voted for Obama and now are living to regret it. Again, it may be depressing to see how Congress wants to stick it to us but the educated American voter is anything but for Obamacare.
Fourthly, if you have a Democrat Congressman and he or she is listed as undecided whether to vote for Obamacare, make the call or send the fax. There is no need to contact any Republicans since all of them are united against a government takeover of medicine. But it is important to contact any hesitant Democrat. A list of Democrats who are alleged to be undecided and which way they may be going can be found here (regularly updated).
If your Democrat Congressman or woman is not on the above list, since they are considered to be solid votes for Obamacare, it probably would do little good to contact them, though I hasten to add that I would never discourage any diehard patriots from doing so. After all, this is America and we have an absolute 1st Amendment right to express our opinions and views to those we elect for public service, even if they ignore us.
Fifthly, if possible, get together with other like-minded individuals, whether they be tea party folks or other compadres. Go to any rallies that may be in your area. Check with Meet up and other sources for get-togethers.
Sixthly, do something that probably no one is thinking of doing. Write a letter to your insurance company and even to insurance companies you aren’t doing business with. Tell them to stand up against the Obaminations thrust upon them by Barack and his bogus administration. You may or may not be crazy about doing so but if ever the insurance companies need to hear from the American people, it is now. Obama is working overtime to institute class warfare between us and them. It is understandable if you have differences with your insurers. But there is one big difference between them and your government. Insurance companies cannot run your life and dictate you to do this and that and the other. Your federal government can. Work out your differences with the insurance companies. If you can’t do so now, make a commitment to do so at some point. We need massive opposition against Washington and we need to join hands with the insurance industry. The time is now to do so. Please take action.
Here is a partial list of companies to write: Blue Cross, United Healthcare, State Farm, All-State, Farmers, Zurich, Hartford, Aetna. If you can think of others, make a note of them. Google them for their addresses. Make sure you write headquarters and not your local offices. Look for the presidents and/or CEO’s on their websites. Write them a short letter, telling them to stand up against the Obama Administration and let them know you understand that Washington is working overtime to divide and conquer. Believe me, if the insurers get multitudes of letters of public support, it will make it easier for them to say NO to the threats and coercions being forced upon them.
This post may be updated during the week. For now, this should give you, my readers, some encouragement as we all work to drive a stake permanently thru this monster, hopefully never to return.
