Welcome to the United Socialist States of America.
This line may premature but we are on an almost unstoppable path to a European style Socialist system. As bad as that system is failing across Europe, it will be worse for us. Our system will be worse as Obamacare’s method to force transition to Government run healthcare will cause more economic and budgeting problems than a single payer healthcare system would.
The focus of this blog could be on how we are living in post-constitutional America, but for that I would recommend Ameritopia by Mark Levin. At this point my focus is on the more urgent matter, our last hope to save the nation, the 2012 elections.
First we must repeal Obamacare. Failure to repeal would doom the country to a fiscal collapse like much of Europe is facing, maybe not immediately, but within 15 years. In the short term failure to repeal will mean continued suppression of the economy and job growth. I would be concerned about the lower quality of healthcare we will have, but that does not seem to matter since we will likely be ruined financially before that happens.
The task is monumental and this next election is the last chance. We must get rid of Obama. We then need GOP control of the House & Senate. Then we will need 7-10 Democrats who care more about the future of the country than setting up a permanent power structure for their party to rule over the decline of the nation.
The task is urgent because within about 5 years likely 50% of employers will dump their employees into the exchanges and by then the private non-employer based insurance will be closing down as healthy people are paying the ”Tax” instead of buying insurance.
The Democrats will propose a Government option to fill the gap. With more than half of the employed people losing their insurance, Democrats will have the support to get it done then. At that point we become Europe were we can’t see how we can survive without Government run health care. Failure to repeal means by 2016 or 2020 at the latest the Democrats will be openly socialists instead of denying their true colors. The GOP will be like Democrats used to be. Obama will have kept his promise to “Fundamentally Transform America”.
We have slim shot to save this nation, but we must try. The only thing evil needs to succeed, is for good men to stand by and do nothing. The Supreme Court decision on Obamacare makes getting rid of Obama and finding 60 Senators supporting repeal the only hope we have left as a nation.
