Do you think our grand children will hate us for allowing the .gov to acquire so much power over our every day lives and destroy the American Dream, or, will they even know what they have lost due to our inaction?
In an extremely short period of time the .gov has gained control of a majority of the home mortgages in the United States, a large chunk of the financial and insurance industry, two major automobile manufacturers and now our health care industry. Private health insurance will most likely be a thing of the past within 3 to 5 years and the .gov is hiring thousands of "agents" for the IRS to ensure that you participate in the .gov health care plan. Some ex ACORN activist with a gun will be charged with keeping you in line. Gives you the warm fuzzies doesn't it?
So now the .gov owns your mortgage, builds your cars, controls your finances and is in charge of your health. Honestly now, how long do you think it will be before the .gov decides it has the power and authority to tell you where to live, who to work for and how many kids to have. The .gov already controls our schools, at what point will they decide to tell our 5th grader that he has to attend the Government Motors Middle School and become a part of the UAW fast track to assembly line worker at the local plant?
The .gov has decided that you have to pay for health insurance, what else will you have to pay for? If the .gov is in charge of your health, might as well require you to pay for a gym membership so you stay healthy eh? If the .gov is going to take away your choice in health service providers they can take away your choice in lifestyle.
Damn it. The American Dream has suffered another major hit this week. On top of overreaching it's bounds, the .gov has decided to add additional taxes to investment income. Americans do not save enough as it is, to penalize those of us who do look to the future is just one more attempt to make us dependent upon the benevolence of our rulers.
Who would have thunk America would ever have "rulers"?
