America, You Asked For It!

Single-payer is the goal, no matter what they say

They’re lying through their teeth when they say their goal isn’t a single-payer system like Canada’s and Great Britain’s!

Their goal is to eliminate the private health insurance market. Not for the good of the people, but to control the people.

Don’t believe it?  Watch what they were saying not so long ago.

Ask yourself this question, where are the most economically depressed areas in the country? The major metropolitan areas that have been run by left wing liberals for decades have the highest crime rates and the highest poverty rates of anywhere in the country. All the promises liberals have made to these constituencies have never come to fruition!

Why on Earth would you believe their pie-in-the-sky promises on health care?

They took over Amtrak and said it would be profitable again within 3 years. Almost 40 years later, it’s still billions in the red.

The post office loses billions every year.

The VA health care system attempts to steer vets to throw in the towel and decide life isn’t worth living. This government-run health care system is well known for the substandard care it provides.

According to Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL), approximately 1/3 of all the files in the custody of the government are lost.

Again I ask, is this who you want tasked with “fixing” the health care system. Do you trust these same bureaucrats to keep costs down?

I don’t.

And I certainly don’t believe their lies, because they’ve wanted a single payer system for a long time!

GM, Amtrak and an Increasingly Fascist America

by Ron Paul on Campaign for Liberty

Last week, General Motors finally declared bankruptcy. Many in government thought $20 billion in taxpayer dollars would save the company, but as predicted, it only postponed the inevitable. The government will dump another $30 billion into GM and take a 60 percent controlling interest for it. Public officials are now involving themselves in tactical business decisions such as where GM’s headquarters should move and what kind of cars it will build.

The promise that this is temporary and will eventually be profitable is supposed to ease the American people into accepting this arrangement, but it is of little comfort to those who remember similar promises when the American taxpayers bought Amtrak. After three years, government was supposed to be out of the passenger rail business. 40 years and billions of dollars later, the government is still operating Amtrak at a loss, despite the fact that they have created a monopoly by making it illegal to compete with Amtrak. Imagine what they can now do to what is left of the great American auto industry!

In a truly free market, GM would get your money one way and one way only — by selling you a car you want, at a price you are willing to pay. Instead, the government is giving public money to a private company in spite of the market signals it has been sending. Throwing money at GM does not stop it from being an engine of wealth destruction; on the contrary, it simply gives it more wealth to destroy.

Had it been allowed to fail naturally, the profitable pieces of GM would have been bought up and put to good use by now. The laid off employees would likely have found new jobs and all that capital would be in private hands, reinvested in companies that produce products demanded by consumers. Instead, we are all poorer now.
