Rise Up and Oppose

I am listening this evening to the lies of der Fuhrer in his speech about ‘health care.’  He thinks he is reassuring us.  But if you are paying attention, you should be frightened, and angered.

Under his dictatorial policy proposal, Americans would be forced to buy health insurance.  Practical considerations, so called, are not important here.  What IS important is the fact that this is tyranny.  Free people are not forced by the government to buy insurance they do not want.

The argument of der Fuhrer that this is akin to states requiring automobile insurance is just an attempt to distract us from the tyranny of this idea.  No state requires citizens to own and operate an automobile.  So the cases are not parallel.

Obama is a demagogue.  He is a dangerous demagogue.  Everything he has implemented, or even proposed (this health care business being just one example) is an attack on liberty.  In fact, for Obama, ‘liberty’ seems to mean the ‘privilege’ he grants you to do whatever HE wants you to do.

The Apostle Paul exhorts us “If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.” (Rom 12:18)  Applied to social policy, it becomes clear that if we lend ourselves to measures (Obama style) to coerce others into working, spending, saving, insuring, buying, selling the way we want then we will necessarily violate this principle.  We are not even attempting to live peaceably with others if, for just one example, we attempt to force them to buy health insurance they do not want.  When we do that, we violate the peace; we start a war.

No list of reasons why we think they really should own insurance can justify this attempt – not, that is, if we want to follow the exhortation of the Apostle.  The Obama style of ‘gangster governance’ is completely incompatible with the Christian faith.  It is time for all men of God to rise up and oppose it.
