Nationalized Health Care

For my entire adult life, I have worked and struggled and sacrificed most of my dreams to provide for my family, and to make sure each one received medical care as they needed it. I have foregone opportunities because I could not afford to take the chance of not having health insurance, for even a short while.

Now, with my children grown and able to take care of themselves, I am being asked, no, told that I must now support a new, more "socially just" system that will provide health insurance to millions of people who do not take personal responsibility in their lives, who do not, and will not make the necessary sacrifices to take care of themselves and their families. I must accept a lower standard of care, and outrageously confiscatory taxes, in order to provide this "free" service to millions of people, a huge portion of whom are of virtually no value to society.

I wonder why, and what is the morality behind it, that I must pay for the health care of other people's children? It is the parents' responsibility to provide for their own offspring, to feed them, educate them, and keep them healthy. It is not mine.

St. Augustine on Curiosity ***

Lieberman Agrees: Democrat Politicians are Paranoid Assholes

"But there is something profoundly wrong—something that should trouble all of us—when we have elected Democratic officials who seem more worried about how the Bush administration might respond to Iran’s murder of our troops, than about the fact that Iran is murdering our troops. "
