The liberal left continues its assault on capitalism with their propaganda that individual prosperity is the direct result/cause of the poor and disadvantaged brought about by an unfavorable condition or circumstance. Basing their ideology on the premise that prosperity promotes greed, (and promoting this as a human defect), by their reasoning, we should feel guilty and show remorse for having the propensity to be successful or prosperous, (see “The Story of Stuff”) The current economic conditions are ripe for a takeover of the debate that it is the government’s responsibility to provide for our needs and aspirations to protect the needy. At this point, the Democrat’s class warfare is gaining steam. Every argument is based on fear and crisis supplanted by unknown facts and distortions. By promoting the rhetorical scare tactics, such as “a global warming crisis”,”economic crisis”, and now the “healthcare crisis, the “progressive left” furthers their vindictive mentality of entitlement verses individual responsibility. A free society will not survive when its government has autocratical control over individual choice.


Not only has this crisis rhetoric taken over the discussion, now your government will implement policy with the threat of fines and imprisonment:

Via Politico--- “Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) received a handwritten note Thursday from Joint Committee on Taxation Chief of Staff Tom Barthold confirming the penalty for failing to pay the up to $1,900 fee for not buying health insurance.

Violators could be charged with a misdemeanor and could face up to a year in jail or a $25,000 penalty, Barthold wrote on JCT letterhead. He signed it "Sincerely, Thomas A. Barthold."

As Richard Conley brilliantly said just a month ago:

"And now the Democrats’ contrived crisis awaits: health care. Madison’s warning in Federalist 63 takes on a particularly eerie prescience “... there are particular moments in public affairs when the people ... misled by the artful misrepresentations of interested men, may call for measures which they themselves will afterwards be the most ready to lament and condemn.”

Health care “reform” is about to be imposed from above on a skeptical public. No one is theoretically exempt from paying the tab, as key Obama advisers have now made public. Gazing with envy across the Atlantic to the burgeoning welfare systems and “nanny states” of Europe, Democrats are oblivious to those countries’ stagnant economic growth and structural double-digit unemployment, which stem from inept government intervention in the private sector, state-controlled health care and insufferable taxation."

I would make the suggestion that if this government and our President intends to impose fines and jail sentences for those who cannot afford, or chose not to purchase health insurance--by injecting illegal social policy—then the Supreme Court should bring down the full weight of their authority under our constitution that protects us from an overbearing or tyrannical government. This is not communist China Mr. Obama, where policy is written with the threat of imprisonment. I like the idea of a government like Honduras, where its Supreme Court can throw its president out of power when he attempts to circumvent its constitution. Fortunately, we have a recurrent electoral process that is supposed to correct this condemnation.
