To The Daily Sun,
Can the fall of Obamacare heal progressive "magical thinking" and restore common sense and sanity within the Democratic Party? I know, a rhetorical question. A couple definitions of magical thinking include: "belief that an object, action or circumstance is unrelated to a course of events". "Irrational belief that one can bring about a circumstance or event by thinking about it or wishing for it". Denying that liberal policies over the years have caused far more harm than good is the demented step sister of paternal progressivism. Believing that good intentions are all that is needed to bring about positive change is the evil uncle of liberal progressive policies. Both are necessary for the Democrat Party to continue to believe they are the only ones on the right path for the betterment of mankind despite massive history to the contrary. Both concepts are necessary for liberal, elitist, central planners (Democrats and establishment Republicans) to believe they are so much smarter than us and thus must control the lives of we, "the great unwashed", in order to save us from ourselves.
President Obama is not the sole proprietor of this belief, but he is the current leader of our great republic who is running the country based on those beliefs. He is also a disciple of Saul Alinsky, admirer of Lucifer and author of "Rules for Radicals". He was taught the principles of "overwhelming the system" while at Columbia University under the tutelage of American sociologists, Richard Andrew Cloward and Francis Fox Piven. He has learned how to "boil the frog slowly" in order to bring about a massive government takeover of the private sector. Obamacare is just the latest and greatest assault on our freedom, attempting to consume fully one sixth of our economy.
It would appear that his own arrogance, aloofness and admitted laziness has caused the water to come to a boil a little too quickly. It would appear that his disdain for having almost no one with business experience as part of his administration, has caused the frog to leap to safety at the last moment. It would appear that President Obama's entourage of deceptive yes men and women has caused the temperature of national discourse to rise to a quick boil with respect to his attempt to nationalize health care. Daniel Hannan, member of the European Parliament has a new book, "Inventing Freedom", which implores America to avoid abandoning individual rights, private property, the rule of law and the institutions of representative government. Europe continues down that socialist path on the road to serfdom. Our president ignores that reality because ironically, it does not fit his manifest mission to transform this country into a European socialist state.
Why does the president not act far more outraged at the failure of the ACA rollout? Why is he not far more embarrassed about his advisors not keeping him abreast of his signature achievement? How can he tell the nation, with a straight face, that he just didn't know the website was not ready to be rolled out? Why have heads not rolled out of his administration? How can he seriously intone he didn't realize buying health insurance was so complicated?
Well, we are now finding out that in some cases he was kept in the dark about his future legacy. We are also finding out that he has purposely changed, obfuscated, "incorrectly promised" and even lied about folks being able to keep their coverage. The conclusion is that his administration is either incompetent or deliberately overwhelming the system in order to bring about fundamental change, including a 100 percent government run, single-payer health care system. Witness the latest revelation where the law has a provision to subsidize insurance companies with our tax payer funds. For those companies who can't make enough profit under the "Affordable Care Act".
I think Obamacare is a progressive disease which has now been exposed for the delusional fraud that it is. Every day there is a new revelation exposing the grandiosity of socialism in all it's destructive, redistributionist ways. Now the cries of "racism" begin anew. Sorry, it is too late, even with the addition of Oprah Winfrey to the desperate, name calling fray. The emperor has no clothes. The so called new clothes of "hope and change" are but ragged old socialism threads laid bare for all to see. The child, today embodied as the young and healthy, are shouting it out loud to the world. The mainstream media has been dragged into the light, kicking and screaming at least temporarily, while shading their eyes from the nakedness of Obamacare. Let us hope that modern day liberal progressivism has been set back for decades. That gives us the best chance to bring back "exceptionalism" into the lexicon of this country and to bring back the American dream for all citizens.
