The idea that Obamacare (Universal Health Care) will bankrupt the United States has been trumpeted recklessly, disingenuously or without a sufficient understanding of the issues by a tragically large portion of Americans. This idea is absolute nonsense for at least two reasons. The first reason is related to too many of us losing our moral compass and the second is related to a brainwashing of our citizens.
Our wars in Korea, Vietnam, two times in Iraq and in Afghanistan clearly indicate we have lost our moral compass. All were elective wars, none ever included physical attacks on American soil by a foreign military unit and none were “declared” as is required by our Constitution.
Our Constitution at Article 1, Section 8, clause 11 states that Congress “shall” have power “To declare War,….” It does not read “may” have power “To declare War,…” We haven’t had a Constitutionally authorized war since World War II in the 1940’s. But we have allowed tens of thousands of our best to die fighting on foreign soil since then and ten times that many of our own wounded. We have killed many hundreds of thousands of citizens in those other countries and squandered trillions of dollars, much of which was borrowed money. Yet we can’t afford Obamacare for our own citizens? Who are the fools that are saying this or believe it?
This squandered money did nothing but fuel an increasingly lavish party for the military/industrial complex, the development of which President Eisenhower warned us about in 1960, as he left office after having served eight years. We need to re-calibrate our moral compass, face up to the magnitude of our worldwide unjustifiable military aggression, pray to be forgiven for it, and redirect most of that military spending to benefiting our own citizens, including funding Obamacare.
The brainwashing of us all is the second reason for the proliferation of the idea that Obamacare will bankrupt America. Please see “The Rule Book: Part 2” posted October 21, 2012, on this blog for a little stage-setting background.
Specifically, for the past several generations in America, there has been an escalating effort on the part of the bankers to seduce Americans to be comfortable in accepting that our Federal Reserve banking system is the only banking system possible and that it is the natural way of things. This would include accepting it’s enslaving outcome, that results from nothing more than a well-camouflaged set of schemes to transfer whatever wealth most of us at the bottom have, into the pockets of the few at the top.
We do not need to borrow money at interest to operate our government: a practice that has resulted in a $16 trillion national debt. We have, as a country through the Constitutional mandate to Congress, the absolute authority to create our own money and spend it directly into the economy without borrowing a nickel.
Obamacare will bankrupt America? No, not even close! The Federal Reserve Bank itself has almost bankrupted America already. The sooner we dissolve the Federal Reserve Bank, the better.
